Just a Thought.Seems pretty cool that we're switching things around now. Microsoft still gets Halo, Sony still get Ratchet & Clank, and Resistance.

Halo is the only thing they have done in recent years. Oni was back in 2001 which was decent. But the Myth series was well received with Myth II getting at 9.3 on GameSpot. Don't forget about Marathon which was great back in the day. Anyway more people being able to play games from Bungie and Insomniac is always good.

Yep Bungie=one of the premier developers out there and in the next year or two cows will finally feel comfortable enough to admit that with Bungie games on the PS3.

No, everybody wins. It's not as if 360 isn't getting Bungie titles anymore, two great developers are just opening up to more gamers.

Both are great developers and both will make great games...

Still, Bungi is developing games for Activision so all games will be MP. While Insominiac will still make some exclusives for Sony.

Yeah I know I spend far too much time on here so I follow this stuff pretty closely :lol:, its just in the spot light a little more now with their last Halo game almost out the door. Im highly anticipating their next project but it sounds like we may have a long wait on our hands. Who knows maybe Activision will have a console out next gen, they certainly have enough first party support to dominate the market (scary huh?)....

It balances out imo. Bungie will be working for Activision, which lately have been giving Sony and the PS3 the cold shoulder.

From my understanding.....could Bungie go with another publisher for a game? And there's nothing to stop MS paying Bungie/Activision for an exclusive/timed exclusive/whatever right?

Maybe but if I'm not mistaken Insomniac has another team now in a newly opened studio so, they can split it into a multiplat team and a PS3 exclusive team.

no i think its just 2 teams. one makes rachet and the other makes resistance. and they alternate years. this year SHOULD have been resistance 3 but i guess they put it on hold for this multiplat title.

I can't really blame them if they walked away from their Sony titles. EA has offered them a great deal in letting them keep their IPs. I am sure they will still make games based on their old IPs for the PS. I am betting though it will not be nearly has much as it use to be.

To be fair one of the main reasons Bungie went away from MS is because they were not allowed to make anything other than Halo.

From what I understand, Activision only have a contract with Bungie over that one 10 year franchise. Bungie could still develop another IP with another publisher, but they have never worked on two full scale games at the same time before, so the chances are it won't happen.

Even if it's not a win for Sony it's still a loss for MS.

What are they thinking letting there best developer go? I don't expect MS to even be arounf for another 2 gens tbh, they're too short sighted.

yup, but now it wont be every year liek they used to. its slowed down. MS can simply give Halo to another fps studeio without skipping a beat. I think they may allready have on in mind. There was a Gearbox rumor a while back.

Sony can withstand the loss of an Insomniac. Microsoft needed a Bungie. The track record alone speaks for itself, but the selling power and massive fanbase that developer has had over the years isn't something any of their other developers can match. Rare hasn't been among the top devs in a long time(although pretty good), Lionhead has been middle of the pack, and Turn 10 has delivered arguably the best racer in Forza 3, but they don't exactly put up GT numbers in that genre either. Sony will be fine without Insomniac being exclusive. Microsoft on the other hand lost one of their biggest guns.

Insomniac are announcing a new game soon and it's rumored to be a PS3 exclusive but we won't know until it's announced. I wouldn't call Insomniac Sony's prized developer that would be Sony Santa Monica or Naughty Dog.

Not to me, they do pump out quality games however they are not on the level of SSM or ND.

Insomniac isn't the shiny gold star that it was in my eyes back in the days. The original Spyro trilogy was one of my favorite platformers of that generation (yes more than Banjo Kazooie & even today) and the early Ratchet & Clank games were different and very amusing. The problem I found was that they pumped the Ratchet & Clank series out every year on the PS2 from 2002 - 2005. This generation, Future is awesome but too short.-_-

On the other hand Resistance is just... I don't know bland? The first one I let it pass since it was something new I saw from Insomniac and it was a launch title but Resistance 2 is just worse. I remember them saying that after signing their deal with EA Games, the development cycle for all their games will be longer now which is something they seriously need. Ratchet & Clank Future were very polished games but not the Resistance titles. I guess it was mainly because it was something new for them while they have been working on Ratchet & Clank for many years now.

Bungie on the other hand is a great developer. I'm no big fan of Halo but I really enjoyed Halo 2 and some what Halo 3. Also them signing a deal with ActiviSUN basically means that timed exclusive DLC's will be going towards the 360 and the 360 version will be superior seeing how it's became a cycle by now with ActiviSUN games and the 360 versions of said title.

In the end, it all balances out.:P Insomniac will still be making exclusive games for the PS3 & their development cycle will be bigger while Bungie's game will pretty much will be superior on the 360 with whatever deal Microsoft will cook up with ActiviSUN.

They usually pump out AA games. They're on a similar level to Rare. I wouldn't put them up there with Naughty Dog.

AAA? All of their games this generation have been AA and their new IP unlike Naughty Dog has met by quite a few disappointed faces. Sure then again R2 "is"AAAE on GS lol.

[QUOTE="ZuneHD"]

[QUOTE="FlamesOfGrey"] Insomniac are announcing a new game soon and it's rumored to be a PS3 exclusive but we won't know until it's announced. I wouldn't call Insomniac Sony's prized developer that would be Sony Santa Monica or Naughty Dog.Anjunaddict

to be insomiac is sonys prized dev.......because they pump out one AA or AAA game per year. Per year. those other studios take at least 2 years to make a game.

They usually pump out AA games. They're on a similar level to Rare. I wouldn't put them up there with Naughty Dog.

Naughty Dog is a great developer but they aren't all that high up either. Remember Insomniac worked on 2 different IP's and rotated their releases while Naughty Dog worked on one IP with the first one being quite good and the second surpassing the first.

By no means is Naughty Dog some developer who will always pump out AAAE worthy games. Heck UC2 along with I think Jak 2 maybe are the only ones compared to let's say Bioware or even Sony's own Polypony Digital.

But Sony do not own Bioware, and I didn't mention PD because they take years and years to make their games, plus they aren't always putting out AAA games either. GT4 was AA, GT5: P and PSP were A.

Who would you put as Sonys best developer then?

Naughty Dog doesn't have that many AAA games either but if you want my honest opinion, I'd say Sony Japan aka TEAM ICO. With games like Patapon, Shadow of the Collosus & such they are the best Sony developer in my eyes.

Also Polypony Digital are basically taking their time. Sometimes it's best to let a developer work at a game at their own leisure instead of making them hurry the hell up... Then again Too Human doesn't really prove my point..:P
