Insomniac Twitter Response to Resistance 3 Boycotters

Posted on Friday, July 8 @ 17:17:13 Eastern by Josh_Laddin
As we reported previously, Resistance 3 is the latest high-profile title to be slapped with an online "pass" that forces you to pay extra if you buy it used and want to play online. And of course, the gaming community went into its inevitable uproar. And of course, Sony didn't give a shit about it and kept on swimming in their glittering golden bank vault.

Insomniac tweeted today responding to comments from people boycotting the game, reminding us who the real culprits are:

They have a point. Developers often take a lot of flak for the greedy bullshit that publishers do, in addition to the fact that they get much less profit than publishers do off of their work. That being said, it's still perfectly understandable that you'd want to boycott a game for shady business practices. So where does that leave us?

Well, basically in the same place we've always been since this industry became a mainstream business: Gamers get screwed, developers get screwed, and publishers laugh all the way to the bank.
