Long-time PlayStation developer Insomniac Games publicly is sharing its development files on the Internet with the hopes of improving the number and quality of PS3 games made by the PlayStation development community.
"The 'R&D' page on the Insomniac Web site is meant to share knowledge with fellow studios about PS3 development while giving our fans a detailed look into how we make our games," said Insomniac CEO Ted Price.
Price believes PS3 development archive will help explain and improve on the companies current production process.
The R&D archive is said to document "current research and development in hopes of supporting the PS3 development community and enhancing overall development for its core technologies such as the CELL processor and RSX [the PS3 graphics chip]," reads the website.
Translation: they hope to less the costs of PS3 by sharing what they know with others and vice versa. If a success, PS3 owners can expect more and better games as the initiative aims to boost PS3 awareness and game quality.
"In addition, we hope that giving interested tech-heads a deeper look into Insomniac's game development and production philosophy will let them see a bit more of what goes on behind the scenes here," adds Price.
Insomniac is created for the creation of Spyro, Ratchet and Clank, and most recently, Resistance: Fall of Man.
