Woohoo! http://kotaku.com/5547071/ratchet--clank-makers-next-game-coming-to-the-xbox-360-ps3

Quote :
The next big gaming franchise from the creators of a decade and a half's worth of some of the Playstation's most beloved titles is coming to the Xbox 360.

Insomniac Games, the studio behind Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, unveiled a deal this morning with Electronic Arts that will put their still unannounced, undated next franchise on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Under the agreement Insomniac will retain ownership of the intellectual property.

"There have been a lot of great reasons to make games for the Playstation," said Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games. "We have a wonderful relationship with Sony and will continue to work with them on Playstation titles."

While Insomniac Games' growth as a developer has been steady, it hasn't seen any big spikes, Price told Kotaku. Making a game for multiple systems means that the developer and its games will be able to reach a broader audience.

"We never wanted to limit ourselves," Price said. "People are inspired here by having the opportunity to try new things. (Playstation 3 shooter) Resistance was a chance to branch out and we will continue to look for those opportunities."

The latest chance is bringing Insomniac Games' upcoming, all-new franchise set in a new universe to the PS3 and Xbox 360. The title is currently in production at the company's Burbank studio, but Price remained tight-lipped about what it was.

"We've never approached any of the games we make as one-offs," Price said. "Our goal is to create a franchise."

Price declined to specify the sort of game it would be, adding that the developer won't be talking about it at this year's E3 next month.

He did say that Insomniac currently has "multiple teams working on multiple projects."

We've heard that Insomniac Games has agreed to produce at least one more Ratchet & Clank title and perhaps two more Resistance games. Price declined to confirm those details, but did verify that his company is still working on both franchises.

"We are going to continue to support Ratchet and Resistance," he said. "I think (PS3 owners) will be happy with what we have coming."

Rumors of Insomniac breaking their 16-year tradition of creating games exclusively for the Playstation first surfaced during the Game Developers Conference earlier this year. Craig Rechenmacher, vice president of marketing at EA Partners, said the discussions with Insomniac started "pretty organically."

"We have relationships with everyone," Rechenmacher said. "This is one we've had our eyes on forever."

"Our goal is to work with the best and brightest game developers"

some decent comments in that news article from the community to be fair but you know the petitions will be prepared, the holding the trey back will be typed across multiple forums and perhaps some lunacy boycott of insomniac.

the truth is its getting very expensive to make games, with economy problems etc it makes sense to go multiplatform for a lot of devs. its a credit to the xbox 360 thats its holding very strong still despite all the shit talk it gets thrown at it.

Resistance 3 will happen if you read the article they will still be working on PS3 exclusive titles such as Resistance and Ratchet & Clank, But all new titles will be multiplatform for both 360 and PS3

guys the point is that Insomiac makes traditonally one ps3 exclusive per year. Like Resistance one year, rachet the next, and repeat.

THIS WAY............they maybe sacrifice a PS3 exclusive to develop a multiplat game.

So basically you might wait 3 years instead of 2 for the next rachet or resistance.

Get it? Thats why its sorta a win for 360 fans.

To be honest, I never was a fan of Insomniac. :/

I guess it's good news though, I really hope most 360 and ps3 2nd party developers make multiplatform games because to be honest, the gap in terms of ps3 and 360's library is, yes quite big, but not significant to the point that it's worth owning both systems....to me at least.
So it's either, more 1st party games for each system or more 3rd party games for each system. I don't care which really but if I could choose, I'd say more multiplats.

But you know.... Ratchet & Clank I've never been a fan of. Resistance is okay... nothing groundbreaking although I like the weapons, but it would be cool to have these games turn multiplatform.

Wow..words cannot express how truly pathetic that is.

Well maybe if all ps3 owners do that, then Insomniac will have no choice but to just release the games exclusively on 360.
Haha clever idea, ps3t parker!

This is just further proof of how far Sony has fallen. Duri9ng the PS1 and PS2 eras a company could make a killing by only developing for Sony's consoles. Not any more. PS3 developers are seeing greener pastures on the Xbox 360 side of the fence and they want a slice of the bigger pie. I'm sure if Naughty Dog could they'd do the same.

I dont think naughty dog could do that even if they wanted to cuz they are first party developers and uncharted 2 seems to have sold pretty good compared to other ps3 exclusives. Another second party developer who eventually may go multiplat is suckerpunch studios the guys who made infamous.

It doesn't mean that resistance 3 wont happen. In the interview Insomniac head stated that it was a one game deal with EA and they are still having a good relationship with sony and the official sony response stated that insomnac still supports sony and they will announce a new exclusive game fairly soon which could very well be Resistance 3 Smile

Resistance and Ratchet are not coming to the 360, that is for sure. So all future IP's will be multiplat but those wont. And this isn't really a win, it just evens out losing Bungie. I'd say Bungie is more of a loss then anything

The real war is between EA and Activision really. Activision got Bungie and EA got Insomniac. Sony and Microsoft still own the IP that the developers created during their time with them. Seriously if Bungie and Insomniac new IP are shooters, I hope they both flop with their first multiplateform game.
