Never mind that. I would like to see publishers making games that are cross platform - in the sense that I can play on a PS3 against pc and 360 users. Unfortunately the big corp$ probably wouldn't like that

Would be a real shame to lose them from the PS3 but to be honest I'm not that surprised. Although Ratchet and Resistance have been good games they have been games mostly ignored by the PS3 audience. If you're a independent developer it would be suicide to stay with a platform where your games aren't selling well. But I'm not sure if this will help greatly because I don't think they're games (based on the current examples) would have sold more if they had been exclusive to the 360; so I'm not sure it would boost their sales greatly. Their best bet would be to find a niche their games can use to it's advantage because at the minute Ratchet doesn't sell and Resistance isn't Halo :S

@xavier, I think that the 360 community would of grasped Resistance and Ratchet with two hands given the chance in all honesty.

I for one would of enjoyed playing Ratchet games on my 360 rather then having to get the PS3 out. I really do need more games on PS3 but more and more there just isnt a reason to do that. :/

360 will never get ratchet, cos i think sony owns the IP. and im pretty sure its the same with resistance.
i think at e3, maybe insomniac will announce 2 games. resistance 3 for the ps3. and one new IP thats going to be multiplatform.

I wonder if CVG will update this story as false?? Check around the web, Isomniac have debunked it already :roll:

If it does happen, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance will remain on the PS brand as Sony own the IP. A Resistance style shooter isn't needed on the 360, but it is crying out for a fantastic platform game and hopefully Insomniac will create one. If they go multi-platform of course. :)

There could be a trade of sorts if this runmour is true. Insomniac could make the next Halo and Bungie could make the next resistance.

Though I doubt that would be the case it would be funny to see the internet melt down after the announcement.

No way. 343 Industries exist for that reason and more importantly, Resistance is rubbish IMO. 8)

no great shame... I thought resistance 1 and 2 were really average anyway.

The 360 is crying out for a Ratchet and Clank style game, especially with the high quality that Insomniac manage to create.

Rare don't exactly seem to be doing the biz, so I think most 360 owners would welcome the news.

However, I put this rumour in the same camp as MGS4.
