The Founder and CEO of Insomniac Games, Ted Price, noticed that one of Insomniac’s fans was enthusing and supporting them on YouTube- so he decided to call and thank him ...
Hah. Great to see devs reaching out like this!
Ted Price is awesome
If GG had called me and thanked me for that trailer I made I would have pissed myself and curled up and cried with happiness as if God had visited me and whispered in my ear that I am awesome.
Ted Price is just a lovable person. I'm actually not saddened that his company went multiplat. Hopefully this makes his team lots of money.
I'm also thankful that they decided to respect their fans and announce this before E3 instead of just dropping the bomb during the MS conference. Insomniac are a great developer and I hope 360's fans receive them well. Best of luck to them.
Ye, I bet MS were really wanting to keep this for their conference as another "steal from Sony".
Agreed. I'm sure Microsoft tried to get them to play the shoulder-tapping Judas routine at their E3 conference.
I know right? That just shows Insomniac has a little bit more integrity and respect for their fans. MS would have done anything to drop it during their conference, because Insomniac is more of a close studio to Sony than either Square or Konami has ever been.
I think that shoulder tap thing is pretty disrespectful anyway. Ted Price is a classy guy, he treats gamers better than that. Very little disappointed Kojima did it, especially when he looked so awkward afterwards.
You already know how 'they' are. I don't see why you continue to risk what little bubble you have left trying to make sense out of what they type. Idiots at best. and rofl @ Evil Knievel
Yeah, why would they do that with some dumb 3rd party like EA, or SquareEnix and Konami? We all know Microsoft doesn't waste time with multiplats at their conferences, and NEVER tries to rub everyone's nose in it when a previously exclusive Sony developer starts working on the 360. The audacity of some people to imply such things... Disgraceful.
Also, notice the PS3 is like the centre of the video with Ted in it haha!
but I find it funny taht instead of talking about insomniac of how they are a great dev. sony fankids talk about microsoft conspiracies.
After Bungie signed a deal to make games on PS3 I don't think MS could boost about making another "steal" from Sony. Bungie was the best developers especially on 360. I really do think if it wasn't for Halo 3 360 would have been another GameCube because most of the 360 fans are 360 fans because of Halo.
M$ executives have shown time and time again that thay would go as far as selling thier silver haired old mothers into prostitution in the middle east if it meant a gain in marketing figures. the many court cases against M$ prove this....it's intelligent of insomniac to not be a part of that...and really nice of Ted Price to call a fan....I agree with above comments wishing luck to 360 fans and insomniac..I'm anti M$ not anti gamers. x
Ya, It was amazing! I have a full article detailing what happened coming out soon on my site gamesonsmash.com
Congrats on being congratulated by Ted Price for congratulating him.
this is why the ps community like insomniac they respect us we respect them
Ted Price is Classy...
No one cares what you have to say anymore. Go back to spending your M$ paycheck and abdoning the compoany that made you famous you money hungry sellout.
Wow, so sad
my god...if your going to try and show disrespect for a company because you don't trust them anymore, at least learn how to correctly spell so you don't look like more of an idiot.
why so butthurt.
needs more people like Ted
Ted has always been a class act. I wish he was my boss.
All I gotta say is Respect!
but i think this stuff should stay private...it looks like pr otherwise but yeah it was good of ted to do this..He's always carried himself well as have the rest of insomniac team. Good luck to their future and thanks for the games. [email protected] 60 dropping notes for pride n prejudice preorder
NO THANK YOU TED FOR OVER 14 YEARS OF COOL & AND FUN GAMES FOR US PLAYSTATION OWNERS.
No thank you to what? Are you serious? You are upset with them because they want to grow their business and expand their reach? Well if you are then good riddance. They won't miss you. EDIT: After reading the response below, I now realize that what the comment maker above was trying to say was "No, THANK YOU Ted, for over 14 years of yada yada ..." Kind of hard to get that when the entire thing reads as a tribute to CAPS...
What the heck are you talking about? He's saying Insomiac shouldn't say thank you instead it's us PS3 owners that should. @ I LOVE GAMES This is what happens if you don't use comma.
Let's eat Grandpa... Lets' eat, Grandpa... Commas save lives!
Bubbles for eating grandpa. Funniest sh!t I've read here in a long time.
Ha ha - hope nobody lost any bubbles because of a missing comma :)
@ Nostradavis I think you misinterpreted it. He probably should have added a comma. He meant "No, thank you ted"
one comma or lack of can change something from love to hate..lol @ Imperator above very true.
It could be seen that way. Ted Price a class act tho. BTW, I wonder what games Ted has under that tape recorder.
Haha. I thought that too. The ones I was really trying to get a glimpse of were the 360 titles. Either way, now the clue hunting side of me is wondering if they were put there as a clue to what kind of game they are working on......hmmmm
The cake thing makes this guy [the fan] seem super obsessive :P It's cool that Price would reach out to a fan like this though, very few studios are so fan oriented.
yeh I thought that too. it's like lol wtf, thats not common. you know who thinks that? "I'm gonna go see my fav devs, i'm gonna bake 'em a cake" :P
Hey, Everyone loves cake!
Other devs should take note.
This just cements Insomniac as my favorite developer of all time even more (With Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica and Bioware just after them). :D Ted Price is awesome.
When I saw the title, I immediately thought he was responding to this dude: http://www.youtube.com/watc... -End statement
Thanks for posting this video. It's brilliant. I was laughing so hard I was in tears. I'd actually pay money to see Ted Price call the ultimategeneral. The 4 min mark on = hahahahaha
HAHAHAHAHAHA! That's a real person, he's actually like that! "FUCK them in the ASS Ted. Fuck.Them.In.Their.Asses.Ted "
That was Funny!
How did they get his number? :|..
Now you xbox only owner could enjoy some awesome platformers and fps's they make too. So I don't want hear anymore negative talk about their games on the PS3! Just to let you know their games will be in HD on both systems.
I hope they make a new platformer. If you ever played Ratchet and Clank you know how good they are at platformers.
There's a cooler experience than this. The guy who does the voice overs for the Halo series rang an avid fan for 30 minutes. Not 5 :p
he is a ceo not a voice actor lol
You guys are idiots. Just because Insomniac is releasing one multi-platform game that will also be on the 360 it doesn't give you the right to hate Insomniac. These guys are behind many brilliant games like the ratchet and resistance series. Insomniac won't dissapoint. Ted Price is awesome for doing this. I just hope 360 owners welcome Insomniac. They really do make great games.
He made a cake!
I will be passing on this title, multi-platform means non ps3 optimized because it has to take into account the xbox360, DVD alone makes it inferior.
ma'am we traced the call...it's coming from inside your house!
Much respect to Ted Price, a real stand up guy. And to the morons who are hating on Insomniac just because their game will be on the 360, you really need to really grow up. I'm expecting the same caliber of game from Insomniac as they have always brought.
Ted Price is awesome, but that other guy in the video was such a doucher.
This is really just another reason as to why Insomniac are so awesome. Props to Ted Price for taking time out to show some gratitude to the guy and I feel that not only is he saying thank you to the kid in the video but that he recorded the video and put it up there as a thank you to pretty much every loyal Insomniac fan. Insomniac make awesome games, Insomniac know how to make games run brilliantly on the PS3 and they will be able to grow their company and bring us even more awesome games. My only real feeling at their announcement is that I can't wait to find out what their new game is going to be. Well maybe a little disappointment that they aren't 100% Sony exclusive anymore but I understand why they have had to do this and I think that the way they announced it kinda helped soften the blow a little bit. Even though I love Insomniac it really would have been disappointing had they surprised everyone by appearing at an E3 conference and announced it. Best of luck Insomniac and please don't keep us waiting too long in finding out what your new game is!
Why is this guys saying soo much Thanks and looks like he is saying Sorry at the same time??? stop it already, you choose 360 fine they got more people PS3 gamers won't mind, they got Killzone 3
We do indeed have Killzone 3. Infact PS3 owners still have Insomniac for exclusives as well as multi-plats. I look forward to seeing how both the EA/Insomniac project and Resistance 3 turn out.
They really are the good guys in this gaming industry. Its great to see PS fans showing support and being positive. I for one have bought every I.G games this gen sofar and that will not stop.
YEH I'M A SONY LOYALIST AN I'M ASHAMED OF THE WAY SOME PEOPLE ARE REACTING TO THIS. The Insomniac EA deal is not big, they will make 1 multiplat game, who knows maybe it wil demonstrate the PS3's power over the x360, maybe this is their secret plan, dev on ps3 then port to 360 Anyway I would just like to say thanks right now to I.G R&C games have kept me so happy for so long now xbots get to finally see what they are missing out on, and it will hit them hard because I.G are up there with all the big names when it comes to making quality games
Yeah I've owned and played every Insomniac Game made this gen and that will indeed continue. Really looking forward to their new work and it is indeed nice to see most people supporting them.
Ted should have pranked him "Do you like scary movies?!" Na this its kinda nice by Ted Price, if developers go multi-platform or exclusive the developers should announce it to the fans themselves; not the new studio they will be working for. Its better for the fans like that.
Ted Price is a cool guy for doing that. There is a PS3 standing vertically in the background, does that mean that way of placing it is now officially fail-approved? ;)
Listen I know its dangerous to express opinion around here but some people act like this is a one game deal, on paper it is, but to quote: Interviewer: "Will u ever make a playstation exclusive game again that isn't from resistance or ratchet franchise." Ted: "No, no we wont." I wish them luck and hope they do well especially Ted with EA but I have seen some ridiculous misinformation on N4G and I will miss insomniac exclusives 4 sure. And I will miss bungie making halo again. Not trolling or flaming whatever, just expressing my opinion that isn't the same as everyone elses.
im gonna suport this devloper
Ted just guilted me into buying R&C:ACIT with this video...
I love this dev team so much. Loved there ratchet and clank series and there resistance series.
