Didn't read or listen to it but from the title alone...

Whether you like him or not you have to realize one thing. When a developer gets into a predicament like this they have to be very careful. They can easily say or do the wrong thing and their public image will nosedive. You don't easily recover when that happens as you become a parody.

Since he doesn't have Dave Jaffe's flair for handling haters he would have been better off not addressing this issue and instead discussing something else.

to me cliffy B seems to care even more about getting attention than he does about promoting his game. he seems to want to give an opinion on everything. just because he made gears doesn't mean he can't shut the f*** up every once in a while.

I'm laughing my a** off at what some people are posting.People are agreeing that he should shut his mouth up but i bet that the majority of the people that's agreeing are ps3 fanboys,not fans because they act their age and want lie or disagree about something if it's against the console that they have.
The guy who created mgs4(ps3 fans thinks he's a god)had to respond to anything about video games.He had to talk about the wii,360 and all the exclusive games on them.He claimed that they can't compare to his mgs4,and he was dead wrong.It's a really good game but i've played better games and the graphics are not that much better then some games on the 360.
If it was him that was saying the same thing the ps3 fanboys would be saying that he's right because ps3 fanboys think that he's a god and he is just a arogant game developer that thinks he is the greatest one that they ever had.He just had one big hit and that was with mgs.The truth is that they have a lot more developers that's a lot better then he is.They have at least two developers that worked for nintendo that made most of their hits for them and most of your biggest selleing games in history are on the nintendo brand.They had a lot of hits but i've never heard one of them bragging about their selfs and how their games are the greatest that was ever made,he** cliffy b didn't either.The only one that i know of that claimed he created the greatest game in history is the one that made mgs4 because he is arogant and that a fact.some one that claim that his on work is the greatest is arogant and he claimed his was.

Maybe you guys should actually watch the video. It's the journalist whom asks CB the question and he gives a mature answer. I don't know why people get so hostile. He's just trying to make a living and is very passionate about his games. And it shows. Why hate him for that?

That whole blog post where this originated is garbage. You can't really tell people to shut up when you spew garbage yourself.

<ahhh...i thought it was a video of somebody bad mouthing him to his face... maybe next time!)

juuken3821d ago

Lol, that would be a laugh riot.
Oh well, better luck next time.

Boldy3821d ago (Edited 3821d ago )

Well, he was a good sport about it. Is it just me or did his voice seem a little higher pitched then usual?

Arsenic133821d ago

Hes been talking to much?

midgetsanx3821d ago

He said "Bigger, Better and more Badass" too many times I guess. xD

I'm just joking Cliffy. Keep making the games.

s8273821d ago

He was definitely pretty even keeled about it. He seemed kind of pleased actually.

JasonXE3821d ago

You didn't notice how loud the music was playing in the background. He was talking a bit fast though.

Peter M, Cliff B and Jay A....all wannabe rockstars...most come across so unkewl, when they try to be kewl, its skin crawling lame....just see any interview with Ted Price from Insomnaic games. He clearly gets his point across and he puts this bozos to shame..

Figboy3821d ago

comes off as an extremely honest, confident, all around nice guy.

he KNOWS for a fact that his teams are some of the best developers in the industry, and as much as i'm sure he WANTS to say "Insomniac F*CKING ROCKS, B*TCHES!!" he maintains his composure, and gets to the damn point. he never talks down about the competition either, while not demeaning his own work too much.

i loved that one interview with hiphopgamer, where, when asked about Resistance 2 vs Gears 2, he says, "well, i have to say that if you own a PS3 and an Xbox 360, you are going to have a GREAT holiday season."

keep speaking the truth, Ted.

donator3821d ago

That's why Insomniac was named one of the best places to work.

sajj3163821d ago

Ted Price for President!

LeonSKennedy4Life3821d ago

Ted Price is amazing.

If I ever get into the gaming industry, I want to work with Insomniac.

IQUITN4G3821d ago (Edited 3821d ago )

Just to confirm, you're not talking about Peter Molyneux i hope - decent bloke

thenickel3821d ago

The funny thing is that if there were more people with Teds attitude on both sides of the fence (MS and Sony)then there probably wouldn't even be a stupid console war.

Figboy3821d ago

Peter Molyneux as a person. to me, he comes off as quite a nice guy. i think he's funny, with moderate charm, but that could just be his accent. those damn Brits always sound so affable! lol.


his problem, is that he gets so excited by his own projects, that he's prone to hyperbole (see: Fable, Fable 2). i happen to ENJOY his games immensely (like Black and White, and the aforementioned Fable), but he just needs to rein it in a bit. stop telling people that your game is going to "redefine" anything, and just tell us why the damn game is FUN (Fable had it's issues, and i was disappointed with the features they cut out of it at the last minute, but the game itself is quite enjoyable and charming. i think i play that on my 360 more than my actual 360 games. lol).

Highwayman3821d ago

There's nothing wrong with Peter M. He has after all brought forht a lot of innovation with his games.

You have to respect the man he does what he loves to do and he's passionate about it.

EastCoastSB3821d ago

I wanna have Ted Prices' kids. No joke.

He's seems like he would make a great father, right?
