Nice. Hope they get more creative freedom and don’t turn into a Spider-Man/Ratchet studio.

This is not even slightly Interesting. Why buy a studio that by choice, would only develop for your consoles anways?

In nearly the last ten years they've developed more 3rd party games then games just for Sony.

Yes it seems to mean that.

They've largely been making VR and mobile titles lately.  

Since 2014, out of 13 titles, only 3 of which made it to PS4.  

It's good for Sony, because they'd have a greater hand in games like Spider-man.  Development and profit wise. 

It's good for Insomniac because they get backing and their best games have been on Playstation.



Thats a big get.



megaton!!!



I hope they are still obligated to finish Stormland for Oculus... but I wouldn't mind an additional PSVR version.

They have had a relationship with SONY that was so close, that all SONY would have to do is just ask them for exclusive stuff. If they wanted to make something exclusive by choice, they would chose PS. So, what is gained from this?

They also announced Spider Man crossed 13 million

Damn.



They're pretty much like family already, so it's about time lol. I wonder if this means Resistance sequel.



This makes sense, not shocked at all.
