Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price has told VG247 that the studio was in talks with many other publishers over its upcoming third-party deal before settling with EA Partners.

It’s not every day someone says, “Insomniac’s Ted Price is on the line”. But then it’s not every day a studio with Insomniac’s sheer weight – the outfit has sold over 35 million games for PlayStation hardware – decides to move away from a superglue relationship with Sony to develop a multi-format title with EA.
“Insomniac is making a 360 game” are words few people ever thought would be true. But true they are, and EA Partners GM David DeMartini is thrilled. Price’s 16 year-old studio is one of the most successful in the world, with benchmark properties such as Ratchet & Clank and Resistance a backbone of Sony’s first-party offering since time immemorial. The developer has only ever released PlayStation products.
Price and DeMartini outlined their shock deal to us on the phone last night, with Price saying he can’t wait to get “Xbox 360 fans excited about” his new, EA-published Insomniac “universe”, and explaining why a brand so massively “PlayStation” felt the need to bat for the other side.
