Insomniac Games talks to - Power of the PS3 and new IPs

Insomniac Games is responsible for two of the PlayStation 3's most impressive titles in Resistance: Fall of Man and Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction. caught up with Brian Hastings, Chief Creative Officer at Insomniac, to discuss the studio's games, the power of the PlayStation 3 and new IPs. Looking ahead, a sequel to Resistance seems a given considering its success. Are there more new IPs to come from Insomniac or are you content with Ratchet and Resistance alternating over the years?

Brian Hastings: We're always evaluating new ideas for IPs and we want to continue making new games. But it's also a big risk and a big investment any time you do something new, so when you manage to have a hit game, like Ratchet & Clank or Resistance, you want to develop it and explore it. We're definitely going to be making new games, and hopefully we'll do it even more often than we have in the past. But we also want to continue the story arcs of the franchises we've created, so it's a matter of finding the right balance.

New IP would be swell. Or at least an attempt for a PSN Title! ;o

[But hey, It's insomniac: the team that never sleeps]

I really didn't know how good Insomniac was until I first played Resistance. These guys definitely know what they're doing. I like the way they are willing to share info with the other PS3 developers.

While I'll take a new IP from Insomniac any day. I'm more curious to finish the story arcs started with Ratchet & Clank: Future, and Resistance.

I agree RFOM and R&C are two freat games...and im always up for those games...Insomniac does no wrong in my book..!!

They're easily the best developers in the game... I'm a huge fan of theirs and anyone who dare buys their games used from a blockbuster or a gamestop needs kicked in the tip of their D*CK.

But they make games for the PS3. And you said anything for the PS3 is sh!t.

So is R&C & RFOM sh!t or not?

Ratchet & Clank bombed in Japan and America. ROFL

Danja3991d ago

just remember that SMG wasn't the runaway success Nintendo was hoping for in Japan either , it barely had ne effect on Hardware sales..and it's tanking in it's secong week...!!

Game launched on the 30th of October and has sold over 180,000 units here in America, that's not bad. By the end of the year it'll have sold thru 400,000 units, easily. Europe and Japans numbers aren't included here. IT's been out for 2 weeks, a little over. What do you expect?
