NowGamer: Despite being almost as powerful as a PS3, and with a third-party dev working on a Resistance game, Insomniac isn't developing for the NGP...
Yeah, Nihilistic probably are? They need to focus on their next IPs (after R3 and RnC)
Sucks for handheld owners, but good news for console owners I guess. I'd still like to see MGS: Peace Walker, among other handheld games on the home console. It sucks having PSP exclusives that could have been done better on the PS3. Chains of Olympus, Ghost of Sparta, Resistance: Retribution, some of the MGSs, etc.
Well Sony had to throw the PSP a few bones! Without the games you mention the PSP's library would have been much weaker. Besides, I'm pretty sure they're going to be NGP-compatible, so that'll increase the launch-library for that portable. I never got a PSP myself, but I'm definitely getting a NGP, so I'm glad the games you mentioned are on PSP. (Provided they'll actually be NPG compatible, of course!)
they got alot of things in their hands to develop foe the NGP
Booooo! Insomniac what the fuck!!! NGP support now... and I do mean right now!
I don't think they worked on PSP, didn't Sony Bend make Resistance Retribution and the Ratchet and Clank games. Most PS3 devs. don't work on their franchises handheld version, it's Sony Bend and High Impact Games that make them.
beat me to it. Insomniac has never made any game for the PSP before
Intelligent post by ABizzel1. Recommend some bubbles for him. And just a head's up.. there's a Resistance NGP forum now on myresistance.net, so I'm assuming it'll be the same deal. A Resistance game, but probably not from Insomniac.
Oh lord. They're not developing for it now. That doesn't mean such a great studio wouldn't develop for the hand held in the future.
They never made a PSP game and neithe did ND, SA, SD...etc... This is not suprising. Their plate is full anyway.
focus on the ea title
wtf bro are you one of the guys who ask for ps3 games on a ds. ea title wat???
Insomniac are working on an unannounced multiplat with EA
its understandable i mean they got Res3 rachet and a multiplatform title
Did they even support PSP1?
dont think they did
captain-obvious@ apparently ur getting disagrees from people who are sure of it.
I have faith in the companies that Sony uses to deliver or make their 1st party portable titles (IP's). So far many of Sony's first party portable companies have done a great job, God Of War and the last Resistance was some of the best potable games ever made.
I think this is a good thing, as I've said before. Insomniac, Naughty Dog and the others don't need to waste their time on handhelds. As long as they share technology and their IP's are fairly represented I say good. Sony will have a slew of not necessarily lesser, but smaller devs, devoted to NGP. They will become specialist on the device and the main studios will be left to develop on the main console.
I don't know why this is a surprise; most big developers don't work on portables. Ready at Dawn studio is awsome, they made the GOW series on PSP, so I'm sure they could do a great Uncharted or Resistance.
Sony have 1 or 2 dedicated studios for handhelds and they did a decent job on them. Insomniac never made a PSP game to begin with so no big lose.
not worth the dev time...not enough profit
I bet they are really, they've probably got a secret game in the pipeline.
They never supported the PSP either. They're a home console developer, this is hardly a surprise.
wow, everyone just calm down...They said they aren't right now but they would love to get their hands on it... Take a chill pill, lol!
as long as READY AT DAWN is making games for the NGP its all good, seriously the god of war games on PSP are awesome, now they have 2 analog sticks as well as the touch screen and sixaxis, NGP GOD OF WAR
Well they never developed for the PSP so this shouldn't even come as a surprise.
So what! That's what Ready At Dawn Studios are for, not to mention Sony Bend and High Impact Games.
Insomniac didn't develop games for the PSP either, so I wasn't expecting them to hop on the PSP2. Naughty Dog didn't develop anything for the PSP as well. Some developers prefer to focus on the platform they feel expresses their vision the best. For Insomniac and Naughty Dog, it's clearly the consoles. Besides, these guys don't have infinite resources when it comes to budget and manpower. Insomniac, between it's two studios, is developing Resistance 3, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, and the unannounced multi-plat title published by EA. That's a HUGE workload, and people want them to develop an exclusive title for the PSP2 as well? I've said it before, and I'll say it again, this generation is full of some of the most selfish, spoiled, entitlement whores I've ever seen in gaming. It's like no one this generation can simply be content with all the awesome games we've gotten this gen from these HUMAN developers, they want them to break themselves to produce even MORE content that we consume, then trade in to GameStop like leftovers. These guys work 8-16 hours a day, 6-7 days a week, 52 weeks out of the year to bring us our gaming entertainment, and we just don't appreciate it. Let Insomniac focus on consoles. There are plenty of other quality 1st and 2nd party developers that Sony has under their belt that are developing PSP2 titles, not to mention the quality third party devs that are producing games. There will be more games than most of us can afford on the PSP2. I can barely afford the EXISTING library of the PS3, Xbox, and current PSP, let alone all the cool titles that will be gracing the PSP2 in the future.
