    Insomniac CEO: WiiU Considered Current Gen, No Games in Dev for it; Excited for Xbox3


    http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comment..._of_insomniac/

    Ted Price is doing a Reddit AMA and he had this to say when asked about the next round of consoles from the big three:


    Quote:


    Q:What are your thoughts on next gen consoles? The new one from MS, PS4 and WII-U?


    Insomniac CEO: Wii-U is something I'd consider more current gen - but we're not working on games for it.

    When it comes to PS4 I'm excited that they seem to lowering barriers for independent developers. It's cool to see almost weekly announcements from Sony explaining how they're opening things up for indies.

    And of course I'm very excited to see what Microsoft announces soon.

    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"
    --Kaz Hirai, CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment

    Well, since they're under the EA umbrella wouldn't surprise me if he was at the xbox unveiling with an exclusive title. In an article a week ago Insomniac hasn't recieved any ps4 (Orbis) dev kits from Sony.

    uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.

    no, just no.

    We are on great terms with them, as illustrated by us working on the Ratchet movie recently. We have had decade plus long relationships with the same people in their product development department and we enjoy working with those folks.

    Insomniac response to NeoGAF rumor: Insomniac doesn't have PS4 dev kits, fallout with Sony

    Edit: Also
    Joystiq: This announcement, is this for a single game? Or is this for the entire franchise?

    Ted Price: This is for a single game.

    They're not under EA. They're still independent...

    A bit stupid for him to call out the Wii U like that.

    Generations are about releases, not the console tech, the Wii U is nintendos next generation of a system, if they are in different leagues to Sony and MS so be it, its still the next generation of hardware for them.

    I like Ted, a LOT. But this was kind of stupid

    That was weak for him to say no one is making games for the console. Ubisoft Crytek and 2kgames are making games for it.

    EA isn't Insomniac's publisher outside of this Fuse title. There's no "umbrella" they are under. Bioware has no choice but to be under this "umbrella" because EA owns them.

    WiiU is a current gen console that launched near the start of next gen. When games start hitting PS4, this will become clear.

    Well, what he did say wasn't wrong. It is more like current gen, and those specs are going to be obsolete in about a year or two. Developers are going to be about pushing boundaries and making games they couldn't do before, not use similar tech from years ago to create something they could do now. Not slighting Wii U, but if I was a developer I'd be really excited for the next xbox and ps4. Time for limits to be pushed again.

    Things might have been different if the WiiU launched when the Wii did.

    I have to agree. I own 2 Wii U consoles, and there is nothing the Wii U can do, that my PS3 can't. Except for the GamePad of course. And the few Wii U exclusives that are out there, are not impressive at all.

    ZombiU
    Monster Hunter
    Lego City
    NSMBU

    These games look like they early PS3 games to me. Hopefully the games start to look and play better though. There is a lot to like about the console, but little to like about the library.

    As Two said they aren't under EA, and they already said they'll continue making PS exclusives.

    Insomniac was one of the weaker developers in Sony's arsenal anyway. Wouldn't mind if they stopped exclusives altogether.

    he's not saying it's not next gen he personally doesn't consider it next-gen. I'm presuming his opinion is based on tech specs.

    Have to quote this again cause reading comprehension in this thread=FAIL

    Did he say NO ONE IS WORKING ON WII-U?

    read again....

    There is a big difference between NO ONE and WE'RE NOT.

    That was weak for you to not read his statement properly!

    I don't know about you guys, but in my mind, "next gen" has always had connotations of substantial leaps or improvements in the capabilities that current tech has. Next gen is The Next Step in game console evolution, not just a date a console is released. Of course it is entirely subjective, this matter of what next gen entails...but for me its always been that new and shiney frontier that puts the current in its place.

    WiiU has ZERO in that next step evolution that "next gen" brings. It has an online suite that Nintendo themselves have admitted will never reach PSN/Live level, lacking 3rd party support and is on par with 7 yea old tech.

    ZombiU, there's no defense. As an exclusive, it should've looked better, but whatever. I still enjoyed the hell out of it. Lego City and NSMBU, they aren't graphics intense games. Monster Hunter is a port of a Wii game. I doubt they put forth a whole lot effort into it. I know you've argued that ACIII looks/runs best on Wii U. The games that try are only going to look better. I know this has been beaten over and over again, especially at Wii U forums lol, but Nintendo fucked up royally, especially when "learned" from the 3DS launch. But not much to do now but wait for the games to come later this year. I know I've got plenty to play still.

    When designing a new multi-platform game, having a one target platform that is seriously underpowered and has ~1/4th of memory available is something that affects every design decision made during development.
    This is something they clearly do want to avoid.
