    I can believe this. He IS stationed in Japan and he IS very busy.

    + thats a bs claim, we all know they started working on galaxy way before the new ratchet and clank.

    Miyamoto just dropped from "UB3R 1337 AWESOME" to "1337 AWESOME". How could, arguably, the biggest name in gaming not know such a big (and incredible) franchise?

    I understand why he wouldn't have ever heard of it. I mean he works hard on his stuff Nintendo that he probably doesn't have the time of day to play a Sony owned game.

    It's pretty well known that Miyamoto, even though he makes games, has never really had too much time to enjoy them. I can say it's possible that it's true.

    Miyamoto out of da loopz.

    I never heard this. Both games are great and I don't believe either one ripped off anything.

    Wow, that must have made Insomniac Games look so bad. :lol:
    Personally, I love the Ratchet and Clank games, but I really do think that Miyamoto did not get any inspiration from those games simply because, as far as I am concerned, there is no link between both games, except for the fact that they are both set in space.

    Well.
    I've never played a Ratchet and Clank game. Never seen one played, either.

    I've seen a commercial though... This blond-haired guy... And this animal thing...
    And...

    Yeah. That's my knowledge.


    EDIT: So... That's Jack and Daxter.
    Aha....
    Wow I'm horrible.

    You do all realize that he could of been sarcastic...right.

    He cannot completely know everything about all video games so lay off Tyler, he will have 90% of his focus on his own projects.

    Besides, Insomniac games didn't decide that worlds were round, science did.

    Woah, back off. All I said was that I was surprised he hadn't heard of Ratchet & Clank, I didn't attack anyone or say he was lying anything. God. I'm sorry I didn't get the memo that Shiggy doesn't pay attention to any other games but his, supposedly.


    ...Anyways, Insomniac shouldn't have made such a blatant claim in the first place. In there reasoning, George Lucas could say that he's flattered R&C took his idea of planetary life/travel/aliens, etc. It was just a poorly thought out move.
