Yeah, but the connotation is different, right? I mean, Insomniac might be independent but they are certainly not an "indie" dev. Indie is always used to describe small teams with generally low budgets. I mean, if we want to be nitpicky we could say they are technically "indie" devs but come on...

don't really give a shit what you consider a proper or an improper description. understand? 

I get where you’re both coming from, but eh. No need to act like this.

Not necessary, why buy them when 90% of their games come exclusively to Sony anyway?

What are you talking about? I don't even know you and i've talked to you once. And the only threads I've been "defensive" or "rude" in are political threads, with OTHER users, which isn't even your business. I'm not offended by what you wrote but trying to excuse it with character assassination is just rude. 

It doesn't even matter either way, it's silly to argue definitions. I was just pointing out something I found odd, no harm meant. 



SMT fans are the worst

They are pretty much already 1st party, so there really is no need to buy them when Sony could buy a completely different developer that could broaden their library further.

Well, they made Sunset Overdrive not too long ago, and I believe GameStop published one of their games? So they aren't just with Sony.

Both are fine, but they had little impact on the gaming world. Whether they would have been with Sony or not.

If Sony wants to dish out money, then they need to buy a developer that broadens their library.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but was it not Sony who assigned Insomniac of all developers -including their own- for the making of Spider-Man? I'm pretty sure they will consider acquiring them not long after the game is out.

A lot of people hate to admit it, but Sony is the force that kept Insomniac afloat. Without their strong relationship throughout, Insomniac may have gone bankrupt or regressed to a small studio. All it takes is a few commercial failures like Fuse and, arguably, Sunset Overdrive.

Publishers' interest in Insomniac will only skyrocket if Spider-Man becomes a huge franchise. But then, Insomniac will owe it to Sony for continuing to recognize their talents and entrusting them with such a big project.

Did you just use indie dev and independent developer interchangeably?

they mean the same thing 

No they do not. Indie refers to small, often 5-10 person teams.  Insomniac is a major developer that happens to be 3rd party.  That is most definitely not indie.



Nope - I trust Insomniac far more than I trust Sony.

 

EDIT: Nope as in I don't want Sony taking over Insomniac.

indie means independent. it doesn't mean small 



Sony and Insomniac already have a perfect relationship. They are very close and release most games together, each sharing their knowledge, tech, and experiences. In addition they have the freedom to work with others, which actually makes them better together.

Seriously, Insomniac could not be in a better posistion. This is the kind of relationship you want in life, whether it is love, business, or other. Having a solid base which you can rely on, while still having room to grow is as good as it gets.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
