144w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with Ted Price of Insomniac Games from GamesCom 2010, as follows:
I've been a supporter of Insomniac Games ever since I played Spyro the Dragon on the original PlayStation that still sits proudly beneath my TV. Therefore, it was a genuine Pleasure to meet the company's President, Ted Price, at gamescom in Cologne.
First of all, I was keen to hear how it felt to finally spill the beans on the two PlayStation 3 games, Ratchet & Clank All 4 One and Resistance 3, that they have been secretly working on.
"It's a relief!" Ted replied. "Our fans are very vocal on the forums about what we're doing and now we can finally confirm that we are making these games and that they are going to be awesome."
It has been a huge year for Insomniac Games an I was also set on finding out how important it felt for them to reassure PlayStation fans of their commitment to their big first parties IPs.

Today Engadget.com reports that Canadian retailer GameStop.ca has priced Sony's upcoming PlayStation Move Motion Controller at $59.99, however, the premature listing now appears to be mysteriously removed.
Sony previously stated that the pricepoint of a PlayStation Move starter kit will be around $100 US and will include a PlayStation Eye camera, a game and a Move controller... meaning the listing above likely referred to a single Move controller.
To quote: Sony's been pretty fuzzy on pricing for the PlayStation Move - we've only really heard "under $100" for the full package with controller and camera - but it looks like the numbers are starting to solidify, as Gamestop Canada has the controller itself now listed for $59.99.
