Insomniac's Ted Price Calls Fan To Say "Thanks"

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 ...

The story is too old to be commented.

Hah. Great to see devs reaching out like this!

Ted Price is awesome

Hideo_Kojima3089d ago

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.

WhittO3089d ago (Edited 3089d ago )

Ye, I bet MS were really wanting to keep this for their conference as another "steal from Sony".

Megaton3089d ago

Agreed. I'm sure Microsoft tried to get them to play the shoulder-tapping Judas routine at their E3 conference.

Millah3089d ago

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.

PirateThom3089d ago

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

Megaton3089d ago (Edited 3089d ago )

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.

WhittO3089d ago

Also, notice the PS3 is like the centre of the video with Ted in it haha!

poopface13089d ago

but I find it funny taht instead of talking about insomniac of how they are a great dev. sony fankids talk about microsoft conspiracies.

Hideo_Kojima3089d ago

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.

Lykon3088d ago

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

Congrats on being congratulated by Ted Price for congratulating him.

jerethdagryphon3089d ago

this is why the ps community like insomniac they respect us we respect them

sikbeta3089d ago

Ted Price is Classy...

Dsnyder3089d ago

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.

HyperBear3089d ago

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.

Commander TK3089d ago

needs more people like Ted

SpaceSquirrel3089d ago

Ted has always been a class act. I wish he was my boss.

BattleAxe3089d ago

All I gotta say is Respect!

NO THANK YOU TED FOR OVER 14 YEARS OF COOL & AND FUN GAMES FOR US PLAYSTATION OWNERS.

Nostradavis3089d ago (Edited 3089d ago )

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...

ClownBelt3089d ago (Edited 3089d ago )

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.

ascendantofrain3089d ago

Let's eat Grandpa...
Lets' eat, Grandpa...

Commas save lives!

Spydr073089d ago

Bubbles for eating grandpa. Funniest sh!t I've read here in a long time.

thief3089d ago

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"

The Wood3089d ago (Edited 3089d ago )

one comma or lack of can change something from love to hate..lol

@ Imperator above

very true.

outrageous3089d ago

It could be seen that way. Ted Price a class act tho.

BTW, I wonder what games Ted has under that tape recorder.

Nostradavis3089d ago

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.

Mista T3089d ago

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

Mucudadada3089d ago

Hey, Everyone loves cake!

Al Bundy3089d ago

Other devs should take note.

Galaxia3089d ago

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.
