Insomniac Games President Ted Price has revealed that his studio will be focusing its efforts this generation on Sony’s PlayStation 3 console, dismissing the possibility that it might be tempted to work on other platforms.
Speaking as to whether or not he feels compelled to work with other formats, Price told VentureBeat: "No. There are always opportunities, since we are independent. But for this generation, we are focused on the PS3 and the leading edge."
"Would you really double or triple your money by doing that? The answer is possibly. It depends on the publisher, the quality of the game, and if you can pull off multiple versions of games with the same level of quality. We haven't been set up to do that. We've been focused on PlayStation technology for a long time.”
“If we were to make that jump, it would take a lot of planning. Right now, we see the other side. If you have a strong publisher who is marketing your games as a way to sell the hardware, then you get a lot of exposure. The sales of "Resistance: Fall of Man" have done very well worldwide, including a lot of fans playing online."
Elsewhere, Price neglected to go into much detail on the company’s in-development project at its recently-opened satellite studio in Raleigh, North Carolina, commenting: “We aren’t saying what they are working on. But we have said they are using tools that we have developed here in Burbank to make games.”
The sequel to Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, is currently scheduled for release exclusively on PlayStation 3 later this year.
