Insomniac Games can now 'perform tricks' on PS3

Insomniac Games’ senior community manager James Stevenson has declared that the California-based developer is now familiar enough with the PlayStation 3’s architecture to “perform tricks on it".
Speaking with the chaps at VideoGamer.com, Stevenson commented, “After we get it off and running and we have a game or two released, three, four years into the lifecycle of consoles is where it starts to get exciting. Now we know how to ride that bicycle and we can start performing tricks on it.”
Elsewhere, he also touched on the Ratchet & Clank series, revealing that the company had to rebuild everything from scratch for the duo’s appearance on PlayStation 3:
“We had to rebuild Ratchet for PS3,” said Stevenson. “All that stuff we took for granted: the move set, the animations, the character, the crates, everything that works on PS2, had to be redone for PS3.”

Nice. I loved Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2, and the Ratchet & Clank series is apparently very good... so if that's how Insomniac perform whilst 'practicing', I can't wait to see what they can do once they've fully mastered the console's abilities

@ 1. Me too! I think I love you! Give me your adress and I'll come over azzap and we can lick some!
I am curious as to what "tricks" they'll show us in their next game. KZ 2 graphics and fluid AC animations for Resistance 3?

Nice this will be especially interesting in terms of Resistance 3 cause TBH Resistance 2 was a let down.

Now that they know how to do tricks maybe they can make a more than an average shooter.

Insomniac is one of my favorite developers for PS3 if not, THE FAVORITE.

@ 1; 3 and 8 are you gay?

Oof. Bad form. The subject is that Insomniac is getting to grips with the programming paradigm. The subtext is the very good metaphor Stevenson is using to describe what that means. So you don't take out part of the subtext to make a headline, specially when it's ambiguous anyway. Jesh..

@3 that sounds gay for you to tell another man that you want to come to his house and lick some lollipops!!!!! And you said you love him!
@8 you gays as well for the same thing! There are 99% males on psu, so remember that you are commenting to what another males say. I don't know where you guys are from but in the U.S its considered gay. Not saying you are, but it soundss like it.

"We had to rebuild Ratchet for PS3” I bloomin hoped so! Imagine how rubbish it'd be if they just kept everything from the PS2 version?
