    Wait a minute...the fact that Insomniac Games wasn't owned by Sony any longer and would go multiplatform for games such as Overstike was announced years ago. :stare:

    All i have is this

    Sony Regrets Losing Insomniac But Soldiers Forth - PS3 News

    if you cant see that i will post what he wrote

    It's true that Insomniac is no longer part of the PlayStation family, but Sony says it "ain't the end of the world."

    In speaking with OPM UK, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe President and CEO Jim Ryan spoke about losing the Resistance developer as an exclusive PlayStation team. Remember, Insomniac did nothing but support the PlayStation brand since 1996, and we all remember the great Ratchet & Clank series as well as the Resistance franchise this generation.

    But Insomniac recently struck out on its own and announced their first multiplatform project, Overstrike, which will come to both the PS3 and Xbox 360. And while Ryan admits Sony would still want Insomniac under their umbrella, he still said Sony is doing just fine without them. They're still friends but given the "strength of Sony's internal studios at the moment," Ryan says losing Insomniac "ain't the end of the world by any means." Well, that's understandable.

    But we still say, the more exclusive projects, the better. It gives teams a chance to focus on one platform and in general, we get that extra level of polish, refinement, and in some cases, innovation. By the way, where the heck is more info on Overstrike? What happened to that game after it was announced...? What's going on?

    Sony lost those licenses over a decade ago iirc . What, you've never seen those Spyro/Crash games for the GameBoy or the GameCube ?

    First I've heard of it but after using Google I found out its true:

    Insomniac Games Goes Multiplatform Nerd Reactor

    Oh well good for Insomniac then. Resistance 3 didn't sell very well on the PS3 and I'm sure if it was mullti-platform they would of did a lot better.

    Maybe this will help clear some things up:

    The Official PlayStation Magazine over in the UK recently sat down to speak with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's President and CEO Jim Ryan, and he spoke briefly about developer Insomniac's relationship with Sony moving forward.

    After making nothing but PlayStation exclusives starting with Disruptor in 1996 and working its way all the way through 14 other titles in the Spyro, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance franchises, Insomniac revealed Overstrike, its very first multi-platform game coming to both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Obviously, this marked a huge shift for the once PlayStation-loyal studio.

    Jim Ryan admits that he wished Insomniac was still in the exclusivity fold, telling OPMUK that "in an ideal world would we prefer them still to be working exclusively on our platforms? Yes, probably." More interestingly, while Ryan told the magazine that Sony is "still friends" with Insomniac, he took what appeared to be a little stab, noting that "the strength of [Sony's] internal studios at the moment means" that not having Insomniac anymore "ain't the end of the world by any means."

    Insomniac has been completely mum about Overstrike since revealing it at this year's past E3. Insomniac's other two PS3-exclusive titles this year, Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, have both already hit store shelves, and it's unclear if Insomniac has future plans to develop PlayStation exclusives.

    Crash wasn't even made by Insomniac. Naught Dog made them.

    Not to mention that Ratchet and Resistance franchises are Sony owned...meaning that they'll always be exclusive unless bought out.

    This is seriously old news...

    The thing that sucks about formerly PS3 exclusives going multiplatform is that quality will suffer for us PS3 guys since it's easier to port from 360 to PS3 than the other way around, which means it's not made to utilize the awesomeness of the ps3.

    Here's a recent article.

    Even a bigger fail for the OP then.

    I believe they can't buy the publishing rights from Sony anyway, and even if they could, they wouldn't sell them (like Microsoft with ME1).

    The world's ending as we know it

    Anyway the only reason why I'm not in complete support for it id because I like PS3 Exclusive games. When they're multiplatform, the XBox 360/PC versions tend to be better than the PS3. I'm a bit selfish when it comes to this

    I don't know how you guys roll on Australia (or maybe it's just you), but where I'm at, we don't live with poles up our asses.

    The PC versions are always superior anyway.
