Sony Buys Spider-Man Developer Insomniac Games


Quote:
Sony has purchased the California-based game studio Insomniac Games, best known for last yearís Spider-Man on PS4. Insomniac will become an exclusive PlayStation developer, Sony says.

Founded in 1994, Insomniac remained independent for 25 years, working largely with Sony on series like Ratchet & Clank and Resistance but also with other big game companies like Microsoft, which published the colorful open-world game Sunset Overdrive (unlikely to get a sequel any time soon).

Insomniac has also worked on several VR games with Oculus, including the upcoming Stormland, currently announced as an Oculus Rift exclusive. Notably, Insomniacís previous VR games have not been released on PlayStation VR.

Spider-Man, a PS4 exclusive, was the studioís most successful game, selling 13.2 million copies according to a Sony press release today. Given that fact, this news, and the end of the first game, itís safe to say that a sequel is in the works for PlayStation 5.

Good, now bring back Resistance. The only bad thing about this is that no more Insomniac games will come to PC.

it's a odd one..


I was for a sony fanboy because of hardware and titles... but then they went woke on their censorship for the platform.


And the other issue is, though I'm not a fan of Microsoft, they're making a lot of their games for PC as well as xbox.

I wish sony would realize they have a huge potential in pc sales if they'd make some of their exclusives for the pc, I know for example bloodborne would sell like hotcakes if made for pc.

Yes, I've debated buying a pro- but at this point I might as well wait for the new gen.

But I much rather game on my PC with a controller, love my ps4 controller.


Plus I love getting a high end PC.


I believe regardless of hardware, people will still buy a console over a pc if they prefer it.

options aren't bad, they could even make their online service for games on pc, kill two birds.

Was there no sunset provision in their signing away their properties all those years ago when Marvel was near death? They were NUTS not to limit the length of such a contract. Nuts.

Edit: Wrong Spider-man thread, lol. Woopsie.
