Last night, Insomniac’s Ted Price claimed he was “misquoted” and his words from a recent EGM interview were taken “out of context” when reported by gaming news sites, calling for “the press” to focus on the bigger picture of an American legal issue instead of posting his words up as news.
Price joins Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski as another high profile developer to recently claim he’s been mistreated by the games media, both of whom have complained about the use of “context” in news reports.
I’ve wanted to write this piece for a long time. VG247 was one of the sites Bleszinski chose to publicly name in his “push back” against what he sees as a growing “tabloid” press sector earlier this year, and I never felt we got the chance to state our case.

Eat Sleep Play’s David Jaffe – currently working on Twisted Metal for the PlayStation 3 is no stranger to controversy or his comments being taken out of context.
So in the wake of Insomniac’s Ted Price’s plea for games press to help mobilise the gaming public against proposed restrictions on sale of certain games – borne as it was by Price being misquoted – you may figure Jaffe would be on board too.

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.
