Insomniac Games have been friends with Sony for a long time now, dating back to the days of PSone. But recently, the company broke exclusive ties, and opted to partner with EA instead to release a new IP to be released on PS3 and Xbox 360.
no reason for any 3rd party dev to limit themselves to 1 console....now insomniac will have ownership of their created ips
They are among, if not THE best developer to grace Sony's console since PSone days.
that is why i am really anxious to see what their talent can do on another platform. Unless...they hold back on purpose. Nah, I am to optimistic to think they would do anything less to risk their reputation.
These guys are so humble and nice. Turn10, watch and learn.
I have always like Insomniac. Even when they were ps exclusive and I loved them on the ps1 and ps2. Being humble is very important in this day of age as you don't see it too much. MS was that way when they first launched. They gave respects and were humble with Sakaguchi and other talented japanese developers. Also when Itigaki left, they thanked him for support of Xbox brand. It is refreshing to see respect and I will be supporting Insomniac in their future endeavors. Kudos!
Yes, both ratchet and resistance are among the most underrated series. I hope they get the critical and commercial success they deserve with resistance 3 and the next ratchet game sounds like fun too.
NOT the best.....
Still its their new studio in north carolina that will handle the multiplatform games, and they have yet to prove themselves. The old insomniac will continue with the resistance/ratchet series.
I do have a slight qualm though, if they are not motivated by money, why do they need to go multi-platform? :D
***Turn10, watch and learn.*** Ninja Theory as well, who also are only around because Sony saved their butts from oblivion.
Are these guys perfect? its hard to fault them really i respect these guys alot as they havr no problem with respecting others and provide quality in exchange for your ££££ there no knock of Nigel
All of there games are good. None of them are bad. If they released girl with a stick then they might have made a bad game. I am glad they were able to do ratchet instead.
why did that comment get so many disagrees?....it's the truth :-/
well...some people wont accept the truth
@Nyc_Gamer..bungie thought the same thing,they were tired of being limited with the xbox
yes....bungie got tired of making halo games every yr and wanted creative freedom/own their ip
I think it is the same reason why they went multiplat, dont you think?
Exactly. Money talks and i get diaagrees for stating truth LOL
think about it tho does money really talk ............if so seek a specialist.
but i only have ONE......**BIG**......QUESTION ......for ted price and gang...... KNOWING that ps3 is more powerful,has more space for content on **ONE DISC** and has free online capable of 256 players or more,now that they are playing third party games and want to expand their WALLETS..... "WILL THE MULTIPLATFORM GAME THEY ARE MAKING FOR PS3 AND 360 BE SCALED BACK TO WORK ON BOTH SYSTEMS?" time and time again we have seen third party publishers dumb down,cut back,rip out,degrade,add DLC later when IT WAS PART OF THE ORIGINAL GAME,to appease microsoft and its fanbase. because,as we have seen... ps3 has more horse power it has more space for content as we have seen with GT5 it has more potential players(256) online for.....wait for it......WAIT FOR IT... ******FREE***** actually,my one question has turned into TWO.... "WILL 360 GAMERS HAVE TO **PAY** TO PLAY THE SAME GAME ONLINE THAT PS3 GAMERS WILL PLAY FOR **FREE**?" should be and interesting answer soon enough.......
well said mate i never thought that far ahead i hope they don't screw us ps3 owners in the name of money they are one of the best devs to touch the ps3 what would it say about the industry if this game was a lame on ps3 compared to 360 =/
With their experience with the PS3, I doubt it would play better on 360. They're a company after all and they're constantly trying to increase shareholder returns. Its not like the PS2 days where the PS2 dominated the market and there was no reason to go multiplatform. So from a business point of view, it is the right choice. From a PS3 gamer's point of view, it means a new IP that could be better if PS3 exclusive. Though there are simply not enough PS3 owners unfortunately.
@SephireX ´not enough PS3 owners´ What the f**k are you smoking?
...I think it would be a fair assumption that the team would work rather closely with Sony for exclusive content, and certainly...they aren't the type of company to scale back a project simply for the sake of. I imagine we'll see the PS3 as a lead SKU...the end result being something like the comparisons for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (comparable on both platforms).
I'm extrmely curious about the engine IG is using for their multiplat game. Just hope it is developed in-house and not the crappy UE3. If in-house there is a good chance the PS3 version be as good or slightly better than the other. I'm not holding my breath tho.
hahaha i like what you did there. Bubbles.
However, LBP uses only 7gb worth of space so um. . .yeah. Just my 2 cents worth. TMI
Wow, you got lots of agrees, will wonders never cease...
agrees for truth what strange world we live in .
We all know what they are capable of.. AAA+ games Now we have to see how working with EA will be..
Will EA give them the creative freedom? You know how anal publishers can be about release date
will the DA kindly say why they DA ?.... they are not capable of AAA games ? we have to wait and see how EA affects them ? how completely fair and generic of a comment can I make and why a DA ? just boggles my mind
I agree Sony always deliver in every way.
they still owe sony consumers everything, basically they can spilt their company in two, release known exclusive titles on ps3 guaranteed to sell a million+ then they can take the other half and make new self owned IP across platforms with little fear of failure. they are in the best situation in terms of profit of any dev, shame that doesn't apply to the consumer though :P exclusive development > mp no matter the situation. 360 exclusives > multiplat ps3 exclusives > multiplat
tell us something we dont know. just make sure resistance 3 is HOT because im not sure if insomniac is developing it, but heros on the move or whatever its called looks pretty lukewarm.
And how do you repay them ? By going multiplat, nice going Insomniac.
Their still making 2 exclusives for the PS3-Heroes on the Move and Resistance 3. With the cost of making games I can't blame developers for going multiplatform. This is clearly a business move and not at all a slap or disrespect to Sony. Remember that Bungie is now mutiplatform.
But HEROes on the Move is not one of them, Nihilstic Software is incharge of Heroes on the Move. Insomniac CA is doing resistance 3 and Insomniac NC is doing ratchet and clank: All 4 One!!!
Umm so I was not wrong. They are making 2 PS3 exlusives...Only thing I got wrong was Heroes on the Move which was the original title before they changed it to Ratchet and Clank: All for 1.
No, Heroes on the Move and All for One are two different games.
Have you ever thought of the possibility that Insomniac is doing this JUST to show HOW multi-plats SHOULD BE DONE ON THE PS3? Gosh, it's quite clear as day they are true SONY supporters, seeing poor ports like Bayonetta and sub-HD RDR may have pushed them over the edge. -End statement
^ xcellent point.... if they can pull of MP titles better than those you mentioned.. it would just show how truely great these dudes are
Nice read. Capcom should take note from Insomniac. I get that the 360 fans are getting extra Dead Rising 2 DLC since the IP did start on the 360. With that same logic shouldn't PS3 owners at least gotten free or extra RE5 DLC? RE did start on the PS1. What if a new Onimusha game comes out? Do PS3 owners gets extra DLC on that since the first Onimusha started on PS2? I'm afraid I already know the answer, which will be a big fat NO. Thanks for nothing Capcom!
lol that was exactly their thinking they viewed move support as an exclusive on ps3. and to be honest it turns a mediocre game into an A, makes the whole game alot more enjoyable. but i agree they need more stuff.
They did a dick move on that as well. Sorry, were not going to release a patch for you people that bought the original RE5 so you can enjoy playing it with PS Move. Instead you all have to buy the Gold edition. Bravo Capcom! Bravo!
Mad respect to Insomniac. I really appreciate all their hard work and effort in helping the Playstation brand.
I love Ted and the entire Full Moon crew at both insomnioac studio's It's an awesome thing to have them finally grown enough to support multiple platform though i do hope that Sony commisions them to develop a new IP as well i'm pretty sure the New Studio in NC can handle a New exclusive Ip that isn't just ratchet! while the CA branch can do the EA IP and the Resistance IP! I swear they will always have my money. I love their Games! and i cant wait for Resistance 3
Insomniac is truly a classy company remembering and praising the hands that had fed them. This is why I love insomniac.
Insomniac are awesome, I got into their games from Ratchet and I really discredited the original Spyros at the time, but I love Resistance and the new Ratchets, they're an awesome company when it comes to fun, creativity and quality.
one first-party studio had to go multi-platform, I would want it to be Insomniac. These guys are professionals and many other developers and companies should act more like them. They make awesome games and so I am glad they are expanding their horizon. Now, a lot more gamers get to experience what Insomniac is all about! I am glad they stayed exclusive with Sony for that long. Best of luck!
i think i felt a warmth in my hearts when i read this
