Insomniac Games: Wii U “more a current gen” console

Within an Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit, Insomniac Games’ CEO Ted Price has waded in to the argument as to whether the Wii U can be seen as a next-generation console. Unfortunately, it isn’t the answer that Nintendo would’ve wanted him to make.

“Wii U is something I’d consider more current gen – but we’re not working on games for it,” he wrote.

“When it comes to PS4 I’m excited that they seem to be lowering barriers for independent developers. It’s cool to see almost weekly announcements from Sony explaining how they’re opening things up for indies. And of course I’m very excited to see what Microsoft announces soon.”

The studio is widely known for creating the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance series for Sony’s PlayStation consoles, although recently made the decision to turn multi-platform within their soon-to-release Fuse.
