PS3 fanboys start to turn on Insomniac

Gamer Sheep: "It should be a great day for gamers when a top-tier development studio talks about a new IP. Even if that new game is for more than one console. God forbid ever game not be an exclusive.

Well, here is a sampling of what happened on twitter when Insomniac talked about a new title they’re working on for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3." (Insomniac Games, PS3, Xbox)

It not foolish. Insomniac worked with sony for a long time so excuse some of us fans for being upset about this. Hopefully working mutiplatform won't affect them from making beautiful and good quality games.

Fanboys are idiots.
... no need to understand them.

They've always been around, trolling and complaining, and they always will be.

All we can do is just shrug our shoulders and hope that one day they'll grow up. They won't though.

@Warprincess116- The fact that four people agreed with you is astonishing to me. If the people complaining were TRUE Insomniac fans, they would congratulate them for opening up their games to a wider audience and reaching a new level of popularity and commercial success.

All I see is a bunch of immature children who are angry because they're no longer the only kid on the block with a new scooter.

Why would making a multiplat title affect them? There are tons of multiplatform games that are better than exclusives. Being exclusive doesn't make a game automatically superior.

People are jealous. Same thing happened when the MGS collection got announced for the Xbox. Insomniac are not bound by some jealous fans who'd rather pigeonhole them to a console out of spite. Insomniac will do what's best for Insomniac.

Personally, I never thought Resistance was their greatest work this gen, and I'm really hoping they go back to their light-hearted, fantasy roots. They were much more creative with Spyro and Ratchet

@ Alpha

I want them to go back to their roots aswell. Resistance is great and all, but i think we need more platforming from Insomniac and outside of Resistance(Its a FPS)/Ratchet and clank.
Wish Sony or Insomniac owned Spyro. May god how far it went downhill.

And as Logic said. if your a Fan of Insomniac then this shouldn't bother you at all. I'm sorry WarPrincess but your just upset that they are Multiplat now, you haven't even seen the game yet, so if you were a true fan you'd wait.

Insomniac have put out SEVEN titles in this generation alone, and all those games have had consistently high ratings. I think that they can juggle just fine

The Xbox on top of that is easier to develop for, so I don't see why PS fans should complain that the Xbox will bring it down when in many cases devs struggle more with the PS3 anyway. You don't ever hear people say that the PS3's complicated architecture brings the 360 counterparts.

Insomniac is experienced, matured, and ready to leave their comfort zone. I applaud them for it and think that working on the Xbox for the first time will be easier than if they were to work on the PS3 for the first time

SoapShoes  +   1637d ago
@Alpha - One would argue that their yearly releases has made their quality suffer compared to what it could be. We'll just see about that when Resistance 3 comes out since they have spent more time on that game. Insomniac has stated they will not drop Ratchet or Resistance so that's three ips they will be working on simultaneously instead of two.

Xbox may be easier to develop for but Insomniac has no experience with that platform, only the PS3. So to them it's probably the same to understand, as something(like the PS3) is only hard if you do not understand it in which they have pretty much already mastered. I see it like math. You only find it hard until you understand it, then it's easy.

*Edit* I'm in no way saying they shouldn't develop on it because they don't have experience, nor am I saying I don't want them to go multiplatform. I'm just saying your theory on the 360 being easier(for most devs) to work on to be a null point in why it would make juggling three ips not so hard.

I agree with WarPrincess. Let's hope that going multiplat doesn't affect the quality of graphics like it did for Game Republic games. Genji: Days of the Blade and Folklore looked better than Majin and Knights Contract.
morganfell  +   1637d ago
The need for parity on platforms is a marketing decision. Make the two versions as close as possible so as not to offend any one group.

This did not happen last gen but it has ruined far too many games this time around.

Any time you strive for platform parity the gamers on one platform - which ever one has superior hardware - lose. One version will be dumbed down to the level of the other.

That isn't fanboyism, rather it is an honest look at how marketing and multiplatform gaming prevent the evolution that is possible on a dedicated platform.

And why is it expected that fans, the ones that paid salaries of developers and publishers and kept the lights on must be loyal when companies are not?

They also could have done a lot worse-- the point is that by working as much as they have, they've managed well.

Having no experience on a console shouldn't stop them from making a game on it, and I think that people are just making excuses to put down the fact that they are developing for the 360


Superiority of a console can be understood both ways: A game could just as well dropped PS3 support and worked solely on the 360 to maximize the potential of a title. I don't see anything that Insomniac did on the PS3 that couldn't be done equally or as good on the 360. I'm sure their game will manage just fine

"Xbox may be easier to develop for but Insomniac has no experience with that platform, only the PS3."

That doesn't mean they'll be lazy at it. Any company given with the dedication can work well at it. Look at the state of how Valve moved on making games for PC to 360 to PS3.

Hardly. Some people just dont understand brand loyalty. Once a game has spent most of it's life on a single console it both defines and has been defined by that console. It becomes synonomous with that consoles name thus making it a part of it's identity. By making it go multiplat you in a way pervert it's identity. I like Vakyria chronicles but I'd never play it on any console but a playstation console. I like Halo but I'd never play it on anything but an xbox. It just wouldnt feel right.

I think Insomniac made a good decision though. They wanted to go multiplat (which perverted their identity as a Sony studio) but at least they didnt port a pre existing IP (not that they could). This is a new IP with a new identity. One things certain though. Insomniac will never be the same after this. Especially once MS starts paying for exclusive content (and you know they will). That'll totally alienate their PS fanbase. I think that's what most people are afraid of.
NukaCola  +   1637d ago
Think about like this: Maybe if 360 gamers really enjoy the game, it will encourage them to buy a PS3 and enjoy all of Insomniac's awesome titles.

"some people buy in to foolish brand loyalty "

yeah, like gamersheep and others dumb xfanboyz, celebrating when a game is becoming "multiplatform" :) (remember the ridiculous E3 with final fantasy ?)

the more important is who has the best games globaly, i don't care if some old games exclusives for one or other brand, start to be multiplatforms.

"I don't see anything that Insomniac did on the PS3 that couldn't be done equally or as good on the 360"

yeah sure, show me the ratchet and clank graphics on 360, show me the huge boss of resistance, the 64 players online, etc...

They worked with Sony for 15 years giving their fans a ton of it's time for some pay back. Give IG some support on their decision, as long as it's a good game it shouldn't matter how many platforms it's on.

I'm one of the people who have been playing IG games since the first Spyro and have played everyone since then and each one I have enjoyed each and every one of them. I don't even get why people are mad or upset they have said many times that they are still working with Sony on games also on FaceBook they said that HHG just made that stuff about MS and them up.
Saladfax  +   1637d ago
This whole thing is horribly indicative of the way people worship the multi-billion dollar corporations who happen to produce gaming machines rather than the people who actually make the software.

There is absolutely no good reason why Insomniac shouldn't be encouraged to try and get their *high quality* work out to as large an audience as possible.

Now, yes, there is a concern that quality can fall off, but if you trust in the talent and dedication of a solid team like Insomniac, then, once again, there's not a darn thing to worry about.

Be fans of games, not of plastic bricks.
OneSneakyMofo  +   1637d ago
The only downside to Insomniac going multiplat is that they stretch their resources out. When a developer exclusively makes a game, they are focusing all their resources into one console. That's why Uncharted 2, Killzone 3, and God of War 3 look the way they do.
gamingdroid  +   1637d ago
Wow! A lot of discussion about nothing... how about everyone calm down and JUDGE THE GAME WHEN IT COMES OUT!!! You know, when you have seen the game, tried it and experienced it.

Contrary to belief, plenty of multi-platform games are very well received... just a thought!

@Warprincess: And that is exactly the only time it should be bothersome...if the game lacked due to resources spreading across two platforms.

I love Insomniac. I hope people who only have a 360 get to see how great of a development team they really are.

BTW, the shoe goes on the other foot, too. For those who only have a PS3, you are missing out on games like Gears. This is why I own a 360. Gears and Halo.

Insomniac will likely do well, and I hope they do a better job proving that the 360 and PS3 are equal in terms of power than what Ninja Theory did; because Odyssey fell flat on it's face in terms of graphics, scale, scope, and all-around quality.

For their second game to take such a backwards step from the first... I dunno. I just expected more, and I'll probably do the same for Insomniac's and Kojima's, er, or whomever is doing Rising.

"Any time you strive for platform parity the gamers on one platform - which ever one has superior hardware - lose. One version will be dumbed down to the level of the other."

"This did not happen last gen but it has ruined far too many games this time around."

You mention how this NEVER happened last generation? You sure about that? ;-)
We all know you work for Sony, which is fine, however you need some clarification here:

Almost ALL multi-Platform games last generation should have looked MILES and above superior on the Xbox1 format than the PS2, however AS you stated in your post, game developers focused for parity. The Xbox1 had more memory and a dedicated GPU that was pixel/vertex programmable. The PS2 did not have this in hardware.
The PS2 also lacked ANY support for Anti-Aliasing. None at all.
The PS2 had less bandwidth overall by leaps and bounds.
It was far weaker than the Xbox1, YET multi-platform games looked almost the same last generation. The Xbox1 was ALWAYS held back in multi-platform games because of the PS2.
So where are you getting your information from?

I could name NUMEROUS multi-platform games on the Xbox1 last generation that should have looked better but did not. So you need to take a step back with that comment you made as its very biased ;-)

As for TRUE games suffering with parity?
It's not the PS3 as it's power level is only slightly more advantageous than the Xbox360.
It's the PC this generation that has gotten the real shaft with these multi-Platform titles. Not the PS3. Not even close.

How many games have we seen released on the PC this generation that lacked full DX11 support that even $100 GPU's can run effectively in 1080p? Too many to count. Blame that on consoles.

No Tessellation? Blame that on consoles.

No MSSA in some PC games?

No high floating point HDR?

Lower resolution textures like the console counter parts do to its small bandwidth and small memory capacity?

Low frame rates LOCKED on the PC version of some games to keep it consistent with the console version low 30fps?

Limited graphic quality settings for the PC version so its inline with the console version?
Oh god I lost count how many PC games got that shaft because of the console versions.

I could go on and on and list those games which would fill a forum. One such game is Crysis 2.

The PS3, like the Xbox360 is 5+ years old. They are BOTH holding back gaming IMO.
When you look at games like BF3, you immediately know these consoles are holding back gaming.
Colmshan1990  +   1636d ago
As a Playstation only owner since I replaced my Mega Drive (Genesis to Americans) with the grey box, and a big Insomniac fan since the days of Spyro the Dragon, my first thought when I heard about the game is when's it out?
I don't particularly care about the fact it's multiplat. The only games where one version is inferior to the other is when the developers don't know how to program for one of the consoles well.
And I think Insomniac have already proven their skill with the PS3. If it was a 360 exclusive, I'd be annoyed. But as it is, I'll (most likely) be buying it.
I hope whatever it is comes out on NGP too though, because I really want to buy that.

thesummerofgeorge  +   1636d ago
I don't particularly care myself, but people seem to ignore the fact that there ARE benefits to games being designed for one console only. An exclusive game will have more potential to be the best game it can be than a multiplat, resources aren't spread as thin as a company that has to develop for several consoles, why is that so difficult to understand? It doesn't make you a fanboy for acknowledging that.

.... And I realize a game isn't better BECAUSE it's exclusive, just that it has more potential.

THIS ARTICLE IS BS! There is no story here.
It's common knowledge that Insomniac was never a first party studio/owned by Sony.

- Resistance AND Ratchet & Clank(their greatest franchise IMO) are two awesome franchises that will never leave the PlayStation brand. So fans of these can relax.

- We don't even know how this new multiplatform game will be, how it looks, performs, plays nor do we even know its complexity to say that PS3 hardware exclusivity could've helped.
We can't say they game will be "dumbed down" because they're designing it with the Xbox 360 in mind from the beginning.
So to me, it really doesn't matter whether it's exclusive or not. We have zero attachment to that game.

- This article blew it out of proportion. They're trying to make a huge story out of nothing. You can't generalize over a hundred million people(PlayStation fans) from a few bad apples.


Please shut up. No one cares. Your rambling is pointless.
You're just jealous because the PS2 got all the support and the only argument you have is "graphics" which no one cared about because we were too busy playing all the games.

My response to the IMSOMNIAC news... AMAZING, I hope their new IP is something like an action RPG set in a colorfull fantasy work. A game to compete against Zelda. I dont want another FPS and I dont mind it being in the 360. As long as it end up being an amazing game like the ones IMSOMNIAC are familiar with Im sold.

Ohh and as long as they keep supporting gaming and dont became publicity tools . . . (you know like Kojima in his Pre E3 video) I dont care Bring on the greatness to the gamers IMSOMNIAC!!!!

Ohh and before I get the disagrees for calling Kojima a publicity tool. I dont really care about MGS coming to the 360. More gamers could enjoy. What bothers me is the way Kojima just spit in his fans face. They could have anounced it in a more respectfull way like its also coming to 360 and our future projects too. Not like he did... just my "fanboy" opinion...


Im I insulting them??? Did I said is fine to do that?? All what Im saying is thats is ironicall that a fanboy call another one a fanboy because they have different opinion.

Insomniac has two Exclusive franchises this gen for PS3 and they are some of the best ones out there. I can see where some would think that because they are going Mutliplat, that they would all of a sudden stop working on PS3 exclusive which is not true.

Almost every time a game on the PS3 gets "hindered" by being on the 360 as well, it's because 360 is the lead platform and the devs aren't great with the PS3 architecture.

Since Insominiac have been PS3 exclusive for ages and had plenty of experience I don't think there should be a problem. Their games have hardly been the most graphically impressive anyway.

I think that developers supporting too much the Xbox this gen is going to bite them in the ass. It is not like the PS2 era where it was the most successful console by a considerable margin. This gen the PS3, 360 and Wii are very much close to each other (the Wii has sold more, but has a different demographic) and developers have been trying too hard to pretend the 360 is as successful as the PS2 when it is not. They think that by supporting the 360 they will get as much money as they used to get by making games on the PS2, where actually, the PS3 has a better attached rate for more companied than the 360.

My guess is that developers will realize this next gen. Project Cafe is about to be unveiled and Sony and MS will follow in the next year or two, which will give the developers the opportunity to decide on which consoles really to support.

They really need to quit being hypocrites by saying they support all consoles and that all games look the same when they know is not true. It would be better for them to support only the console they are going to do the best job at and release a quality game for one console, instead a shitty port on all of them.

Just look at Square Enix: they were supporting Nintendo and jumped ship to Sony because they wanted to make better games, then they jumped ship to MS because they wanted money (instead of doing quality games), and has it paid off? I don't think so. They lost fans, they have only released ONE game in FIVE years on the PS3, and all the games this gen have been average.

Hopefully, next gen is the vindication of all bad things that happened to gaming.
Redgehammer  +   1637d ago
And who, or what, deserves the vindication? Also are you trying to imply the 360 is not successful? Rather than just picking one platform, wouldn't it be better to have dedicated teams working to make each version the best it can be?

They are going to make more money. They want to remain apart of the Sony family but they have to remain profitable. Who knows what their new game is. I hope it isn't a shooter. I hope they introduce a new character in third person view with a sword rather than a gun. Uncharted and TR are great for exploration. Darksiders seems to be the mature Zelda. I would like another Zelda like mature game. No GOW type hack and slash something different like infamous maybe a lady lead character to change things up?

I agree, doing a multiplat is fine but a 360 exclusive wouldn't be a smart move. Just like it wouldn't be smart for bungie to do one for the PS3. They would have to remember to have some loyalty to the fans that made them the names they are today.

Miss leading and a mis chartization
Both examples expressed immediate shock at the multi-plat new release... but (and here is the kicker) engaged in relevant conversation with the developer.

I don’t support users’ views.. However this is far from 'Fanboyizem'. Both posters questioned Insomniac's ability to continue to deliver a high product to the PS3 base,.. Then ultimately wished Insomniac good luck.

I wish Insomniac the best.

To 360 only gamers: Please support them, they're great developers.

To N4G'ers: Stop perpetuating this 'Fanboy' talk back. It’s fun when sprinkled across a thread.. but should not be legitimized to such a degree.
madjedi  +   1637d ago
I honestly question how much support from the 360 fanbase insomniac will actually get, i'll think alot of 360 commenters(not all) are more interested. In the fact that it is not an exclusive to ps3 and much less that a insomniac title is coming to the 360.

I saw the same bs, when rising was announced as multiplatform suddenly the mgs saga was loved by all these 360 owners, despite part 4 being ridiculed as a movie countless times.

But maybe when bungie shows their game, ps3 owners will do the same thing, i do not considered the me series going mp.

To be the exact same for it was the only major 360 exclusive i remember mentioned in a predominantly positive context rather than a negative one, but as far as flat out reversal yeah both sides are guilty.

I got no problem, as bungie is going multi platform. They deserve to make money. It doesn't bother me at all because I have confidence that the ps3 would b the lead platform for anything that they make and i will buy it for the ps3. I think its great that Xbox fans get to see how talented these guys really are. It is a little sad that games like uncharted 2 and most likely 3 may go down as one of the top 5 all time best games/franchises but only ps3 owners could enjoy it. I wish they would link all three platforms online and allow us to choose what to use. It would force them to make the beast systems and not simply the best exclusive IP's. I'm pulling for ya insomniac, now release r3 in August, lol.

Unfortunately, the simple experience showed that games or devs that jumped the ship didn't get better.
GTA IV is worse than the ones on PS2.
Devil May Cry 4 is worse than 1 and 3.
Final Fantasy XIII...same.
Releasing multiplat increases costs, the different versions will hardly be equal, and fanboysm is a normal thing.
Insomniac became who they are with the money of Sony fans.
It's like you give money to your gf to buy nice clothes, and she dresses with those clothes to hang out with another guy.
Going for a broader audience is another bit ridiculous fact.
Sony fans appreciate Insomniac's stuff...what about 360 fans? Do they care? I think I read so many bad comments from 360 fans about Resistance being lame.
So basically Insomniac will probably lose some fans to get some others...
And lastly, the market is getting too big and too many good games are coming, so the space left to promote a new IP and make it succesfully is a big risk that almost never pays off, unless the game is a monster.
So Insomniac is going the risky way turning their back on some fans.
Courageous move, but not smart imho.
REALgamer  +   1637d ago
Are you seriously saying that GTA IV, DMC4 and FFXIII are worse because they went multiplatform?

You do realise DESIGN isn't affected by platform? The developers don't sit around going "well, we had better take some fun out of the game because the Xbox 360's fun processor is only 7638gHz".

Gameplay comes from the game DESIGN, not from the hardware itself. If you take a game from the 360 and stick it on PS3 it doesn't instantly become more fun, and vice versa. Pretending that those games would be better if they were only on PS3 is ridiculous.

If you don't enjoy a game, blame the designers.

To address 'will 360 fans appreciate Insomniac's games' - do you play games, or do you play developers? The very small portion of console gamers here on N4G are here because they enjoy debating and are generally more aware of developers and gaming trends.

When the average consumer goes and pick ups the latest Call of Duty they don't look at the corner of the box and go "this is an Activision game?! I'm totally not buying this anymore because the CEO is an a**hole".

And finally, about new IPs being a big risk - are you saying you'd rather we get no original new games anymore?

Here's a short list of just a few of the successful new retail game IPs this gen. You may also notice that most are multiplatform, as Insomniac's new game is:

- Uncharted
- Bioshock
- Crysis
- Mass Effect
- Dragon Age
- Bayonetta
- Heavy Rain
- Crackdown
- Portal
- Gears of War
- Rock Band
- Resistance
- Assassin's Creed
- Left 4 Dead
- LA Noire
- Dead Space
- Bulletstorm
- Skate
- Dead Rising
- Alan Wake
- Dance Central
- Saints Row
- Borderlands

Thats the thing. Just another typical asshole wanting hits but i am never ever giving that site any. I advise other PS fans here to do the same.

Since the beginning of this gen i find these x360 fanboys always do anything to paint PS fans in a bad light. They talk more about PS fans than they do their games. Some of then even created a site called Sony defence force to discredit PS fans. I wouldn't be surprised if some of them pretended to be PS fans that are tweeting. Seriously they are that insecure and petty.

I have seen many similar cases here on n4g as well.

Its been mostly positive from PS fans and yet someone write a few negative comments and then get it approve here.

I can find many cases of x360 fans turning on Bungie but no one sees it worth anything to write about because its stupid.

How many games has the PS3 received this generation that started out on other platforms ? ... a LOT.

As for Insomniac ... good for them. They now own the new IP instead of Sony, and will make more money going multi-platform.

I think this would be a plus point for both consoles. Finally there would be a developer which can be guaranteed to not screw up on the ps3 version of a multi-platform game (not saying that all other mp developers do but there is consistency). Secondly for the 360 gamers, they'll get to enjoy all the awesome games Insomniac develop,whose games PlayStation gamers have relished over the years. I see this as a win-win situation.

You put gears on a ps3 all those comments i see on youtube saying, "ps3 user are stupid and they are missing out" would turn into outrage. Bungie leaving didn't piss 360 fans off like expected, because they didn't announce anything yet. To be honest I think a pc and ps3 cross would also be better.

Downright embarrassing if you ask me. Insomniac should make ALL future games multi-platform as should any dev not under contract to any particular pub.

Bungie is now making a multi-platform and will be for the next ten years. I suspect that Epic, who already has other games on different systems will also bring their IP's to the world at large.

Fanboys tend to get way over their heads with this type of stupidity.

Treyb3yond  +   1636d ago
Basically, people realise that SINGLE PLATFORM games are usually of HIGHER QUALITY than multiplatform games.

To deny this simple fact and say "the more games are multiplatform the better" is just rubbish.

I say: The more games are EXCLUSIVE the more companies will compete to raise the bar!

Example? look at how many games (looking at you EPIC) were inspired to make better products by high quality games like Uncharted 2. A specialist product will be better than a general one 90% of the time.

Development teams are going multiplatform for the THE PROFITS, NOT IN THE INTERESTS OF QUALITY!

Exclusive games are absolutely essential. When you see Activision and EA's yearly update franchises and then say "all games should be multiplatform" you can't be that intelligent.

I don't want yearly updates and I don't want casual games. I want games designed with passion for a single platform in mind and I want this mindset to inspire others.

Anybody remember when Ninja Theory went multiplatform? Heavenly Sword was pretty good, Enslaved sucked a big bag of nuts. Quality takes a hit when you decide to go multiplatform. You can either make a great PS3 game and give the Xbox a shitty port, or you can work with the Xbox's potential which results in a less impressive game on PS3. After Enslaved, I won't buy another Ninja Theory game. That's why people are mad about this.

I kind of understand, working with sony for what 15 years? But later down the road it seems that they didn't get much from there games or perhaps from sony?

Much like how Bungie went to being a third party, Microsoft owning the Halo franchise(IP), where as when selling halo games Microsoft would get most of the revenue from units sold. I see the same with Insomniac and sony.

If they are to stay in the "bizz", they would have to do some games multiplat. Apparently, people are angry because of this. But if Insomniac had proper support from there "fans", perhaps they wouldn't need to go multi? But I say, let them be angry. People have bills to pay and families to feed.

The ones that are angry are younger people who have not been struck with the realities, and responsibilities of life.

I agree with your statement, it's just that getting more money doesn't always equate into getting more quality talent - or even games getting higher development budgets. Some games have higher marketing budgets than game budgets, so that money might just be there to trick us into buying the game instead of improving it. That and Sony isn't known to skimp on paying for game budgets, like 3rd party publishers.

Look at thatgamecompany for instance and Journey - there's only about 12 people in their company, game looks amazing.
mastiffchild  +   1636d ago
With them reaching ut to the 360 audience I have worries over the quality of their multiplatform games.Naturally direct comparisons will be impossible as Sony own the IPs for Ratchet and for Resistance etc but as parity is the most important issue for ANY multiplat dev if they HAD/HAVE eked more from PS3 than they could with 360 then that extra will now, no argument , be cut back so the new custom base doesn't feel they're using the wrong console.

Parity is, rightly or wrongly, the king for the multi dev and with them used to stellar PS3 optimisation on Ratchet and, finally now they haven't had to rush one, R3 as well isn't it likely they will opt for the second level; of optimisation so they can match versions>?With a new IP. also, it's easier to hide the results whereas a new Ratchet not up to smack would be tell tale.Exclusives by whoever are always better games than those made as multis by the same people. End of debate for me-this generation at least as the bases are too close to risk annoying half your customers at launch.

Not a one way street either-were Insom to make a 360 exclusive that, also, would be better performing than a multi made by them. Same for any developer while parity is, annoyingly God. I'ma big fan of Insom and the guys, begrudge them nothing but am shocked so many 3650 heads who have rubbished Resistance for being pants and R&C for being "kiddy" are now excited about them. If they can keep that amazing quality up then great for us all-and I hope the same for Bungie but with exactly the same reservations about going non exclusive.

Who says it's bigger or better, the first Resistance sold over 3 million! Many, if not most, multiplatform games don't even sell that much(look at Vanquish).

To add to that, we'll have next generation consoles out within three or four years at most and if Insomniac doesn't grow it won't have the funds to support itself. Insomniac was already well behind other PS3 exclusive developers in technology and the fact that they are going multiplatform has been known about for a long time now.

@Estranged, 3 million is a good figure, but keep in mind that it was one of a few launch titles and subsequently packaged with the ps3 for years to come. It was always going to sell big. Resistance 2 sold a million less.

The point I'm trying to make is, this is a great stepping stone to becoming a better company and in turn, delivering a variety of games to a larger populus. The exclusivity gave them great credentials and now they can move forward. Much like Bungie, Valve and even Kojima productions.

I just don't see your logic. Going multiplatform doesn't make them better in any way, it doesn't help them move forward(other than in programming experience), and it doesn't necessarily mean it will get them more sells.

Most games don't even sell what Resistance 2 sold being multiplatform(again look at Vanquish as a good example being a new ip). I'm just saying it's silly to say they will become a better company or that reaching out to a larger pool of people will guarantee any more than they have now.

It's a good thing that they can sell to people who could not buy their product but that doesn't mean those people will buy it. In my eyes it's neither good nor bad and I could care less. I'm just happy they are doing what will make them happy.

i agree 100%, expand your audience all you want but will quality suffer? that remains to be seen. this game will be ripped apart and compared to death so insomniac better make a damn good game .

fanboys are in general..angry. Fans don't care. This is nothing new or article worthy imho. it happens when such things happen on all consoles..not news

Lol, 2 Ratchets, a Ratchet DLC and 3 Resistances.

5 Exclusive games from Insomniac this generation alone.

Be nice PS3 fanboys, sharing is caring XD

Fanboys are idiots.

People who don't understand fanboys are bigger idiots.

It's basic psychology, people.

I, for one, am excited to see what they have to show us. This isn't the same Insomniac team though. It's all new developers in the new Insomniac branch.
PandaJenkins  +   1637d ago
It's just fanboys being immature and selfish. It is a good thing for Insominiac to branch out. If you're not owned by one of the big 3 it is a large market to miss if you push away platforms.

They bringing their talents onto the 360 lold, its kinda like the lebron james thing, sony fanboys thought insomniac was one their own people.
blackburn10  +   1637d ago
Yawn. If any game went from the 360 to the PS3 the 360 fanboys would act the same way (which they do). Besides a few twitter sentences does not a turn on make. Can we stop the pretence that one fanboy is better then another..... please? It's kind of annoying.

All I see is more and more 'ps3 fanboys' this 'ps3 fanboys' that. You barely ever see the term xbot or whatever anymore.

When you don't have a solid argument you resort to lower means to defend yourself - by attempting to discredit your opposition. Why is there this ridiculous effort to try to discredit 'PS3 Fanboys?' As if the fans of other platforms are somehow not capable of having strong slanted opinions toward their platform of choice. Give a strong argument back, don't act like a 12 year old trying to sling mud about the so called 'loony bin' your opposition lives in.

There is plenty of fanboys for each platform around but here on N4G you mainly only see 'PS3 fanboy' thrown around due to this site being incredibly Sony biased (and don't even try to deny that).
rob6021  +   1637d ago
I don't deny that there are more PS3 fans here, but why is it that way? This site covers all websites in the gaming media. I often wonder if the reason is just that they're more vocal about setting the record straight because it needs to be done. When I smell BS from some website, I investigate; and feel obligation to question authenticity and inform others when it should be.

Secondly I've read the comments of many other sites, and maybe it's my own view, but I still see 'Sony fanboys' being painted as worse offenders in places other than N4G - maybe it's more prominent here.

I would put this way imagine you had a beautiful girlfriend and you have a relationship with her but one day she told you that she wants to become a prostitue for the money and the sex. Those guys are going to stick their D*ck in her and now your heartbroken. Where's your love now?
rob6021  +   1637d ago
lol there is some sense of loyalty there, I don't think anyone's truly immune to it. What bugs me the most is that other reasoning is often thrown to the way side highlighting the 'product loyalty' aspect. There's lots of reasons why people could be mad about Insomniac going multi-platform.
godslayer429  +   1637d ago
ima fanboy and im not turning on them. i respect them for there decision to broaden there horzions. insomniac will always be one the best developers. period.
