Happy Holidays From Insomniac Games!

Hey everyone!

A very Happy Holidays to you all from all of us here at Insomniac Games. This is a great time of year for all of us, as we take time off to be with our family, friends, and to play all of the videogames from this year that we missed out on while making Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Some of us will be busy exploring with Nathan Drake in UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, others will be unlocking the powers of Cole MacGrath in inFAMOUS. We might find ourselves buried in BioWare’s latest epic Dragon Age: Origins, or maybe just jamming out to Lego Rock Band with the family. Regardless, it’s an exciting holiday season with a ton of good games. Hopefully you’ve had the chance to check out Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, but if not, it’s the perfect game to cash in those gift cards for (in our humble opinion).

Every year, we send out Christmas cards to close friends and partners of the studio, and we always love to share those cards with our fans over the internet. This year’s card portraying Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Nefarious was created by Dave Guertin, our principle artist in North Carolina. He and Greg Baldwin were also responsible for the sculptures of the employee only Ratchet & Clank vinyl collectibles. There are still a few sets of these vinyls left that are being auctioned for charity to benefit Starlight Foundation. You can see their currently listed items and bid on them here.

2009 Insomniac Games Holiday Card

Thanks again for all of your support for us, and for our games. We are so grateful for our fans — and we can’t wait to get back next year and show you what we’re working on next!

Happy Holidays!

Season’s Greeting to everyone at Insomniac, I look forward to seeing what you guys have in store for us in 2010 and hopefully what ever that is will remain Only on PlayStation ;)

Thanks Insomniac! Hope you guys had a great Christmas!

I also hope that what you are ‘working on next’ is nothing other than Resistance 3? Or perhaps Fall of Man and Tools of Destruction trophy patches? ;)

If I click on ”here” I get a Page not found site…

– 1 trophy left! –

Thanks so much for making Ratchet And Clank ACIT, been playing it non-stop since xmas day and im loving it like every over R&C game. On challenge mode atm and just upgraded my RYNO V to v5 :D Working on getting platinum too.

Happy holidays and please make another one :D

Oooh, cool card and seasons greetings!

Your tinyurl to the ebay page is broken, need to put the http in front. :)

Oh yeah, hope one of your announcements is a HD package of Ratchet And Clanks 1 – 3. Loved those games more than any others on PS2.

Happy Christmas Insomniac :)

Been plying your games since the early spyro days :D

I agree with mrfight67 I hope you do bring out a HD Blu Ray version of the original Ratchet and Clank games :D

Link to auction does not work :(

Happy Xmas to all at Insomniac, i love you guys.

Thanks guys and Merry Christmas and a Happy 2010 to you all as well!
Hopefully those pesky rumours swirling around about you lot going multiplatform aren’t real.
Here’s to hoping for another great yeat for Insomniac and the PlayStation family! Hip hip, hurray! :)

I LOVED ‘Ratchet&Clank:A Crack in Time ;P I WANT MORE! ;)

I need resistance 3!

AHEM I would bid on those, but $130 shipping, are you kidding?

Thx u 2 guys! :D

Played all the Ratchets on PS2+PSP+PS3 except Acit… but i’ll get that one too!!

[Fanboy: ON] Hopefully the rumors of Insomniac going multiplateform are wrong… :/

I truly love Insomniac games. It’s not often that i have developer loyalty, but I’d label myself a devout follower if it came down to it. The hard work, the consistency of game releases, everything.

If it really is the end of the Ratchet and Clank series i’ll be so disappointed. For one, it’s the only game out there that is in depth enough to hook even my younger sister, but not crackingly difficult or mature to put her off.

It’s not right that you guys get so overlooked, what with the Uncharted’s and Call of Duties out there, but i really hope you don’t turn multiplatform too. Not out of spite, it just gives PS that added stardust to the system.


AWESOME! XD I want one of these from EVERY SINGLE DEV!


Happy Holidays Insominac, I played Crack in Time, and throughly enjoyed the last outting of the Ratchet and Clank series. Its a shame but I guess times need to move on. Also I wish I got that card through the mail =(

I would hope to see trophy patches for your past games in the near future, Resistance:FOM, and the other two Ratchet and Clank games. I know that they may never appear but its a possible opportunity in the future ;P

But anyway if you excuse me, I’ve got to get back to dancing to for New year.

*dances to groovitron music*

Insomniac, you guys rock.
Happy holidays!

Insomniac games please listen to this because I think Sony agrees whit me:

Make a 2 years development cycle for your games so you can polish it enough to become a AAA title like Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2. Resistance 3 need to be a reboot and your second development studio you started needs to also be in that cycle. Also make a game that compete whit Fable and you have a winner. Because I believe in you guys I have bought every game from you guys but I dont like that many of your games have been lackluster. Especially Resistance 2.

Happy holidays!

Crack in Time was excellent, the best R&C game I’ve played and far better than Resistance 1&2 (even though i quite enjoyed the first game as that gave me some chance to have fun but the sequel was a bit… I guess too much).

I hope you will keep making games in the style of Ratchet as I’m a big fan of the characters and style of game design.


If you go multiplatform next year as rumored this would mean nothing to Playstation fans!


I hope you guys make HD versions of the first 3 R&C games, like what God of War did, also I don’t hope you make trophy patches for R&C ToD as I would have to go through it for the millionth time and I already have unlocked everything so it would be annoying to do it all again lol

I loved the first Resistance and Ratchet and Clank are long time favourites. I’m looking forward to see what your next IP will be.
