Obviously a PR move since I'm sure that EA has or propably will be supplying a 360 development kit to Insomniac anyway. Rubbing salt into the wounds of PS3 fanboys. lol

Usualy developers have to buy Dev Kits and they are expensive. This is MS showing that they are the best system to developer on and they care more than anyone about getting quality games for their fans.

Just proves one again that Microsoft cares about their 3rd party developers and are willing to offer help to make the best XBOX 360 game as possible for the 360 owners. Unlike Sony.

Yeah, this gen needs more games like that.

I've noticed that games are becoming less and less imaginative. Now all it takes is a game that gives you some weapons and gore, to satisfy people.

Try, best use of light in any game yet.

Oh and Alan Wake came out a little more than 4 years after it was announced.

As for "hopes", it's PS3 fantards who better hope Insomniac doesn't get a taste for multiplatform money or Resistance 3 will be the last they make.

I really can't word the amount of ignorant fanboyism in that single post.
Good one. They don't make them like you anymore.

No, this is indeed a PR move trying to show that Insomniac is indeed multi-platform. 360 fans seem to forget that even though Insomniac is multi-platform, they still are working exclusively with Sony for how many undisclosed games. Insom is not going multi because of Sony, they've been partners for over a decade. They are going multi because in this economic time, it's better money to develop for more than one company. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see Microsoft throwing money at Insom for DLC or whatever else they have planned.

That and Insomniac is saying that they are putting out games yearly so this side venture allows for more time for their main projects (Resistance 3, etc)

Yeah I believe the NC studio will be handling the PS3 exclusive titles while the one in L.A. will handle the multis.
