Hot news is coming about Sony Interactive Entertainment. The company released the announcement on Monday that it will buy Insomniac Games. Insomniac Games is the company that issued the video games Spider-Man and Ratchet & Clank.
Unfortunately, Sony did not give any details about the financial part regarding this transaction. Sony will provide a big hit with the most acclaimed studio, especially that they are the ones producing games for the Japanese company and their consoles – Play Station.
Insomniac is well known in the games industry for their best storytelling and gameplay. The history of the company starts way over 25 years ago, and it had successful games in the long run. Games like Resistance, Spyro the Dragon, and Ratchet & Clank, are some of the names released by Insomniac. The company’s relationship with Sony and Marvel Games was through Spider-Man.

Besides this, having Insomniac in the line of the stable studios, the new PlayStation will benefit from it. Along the years, the two companies had an excellent relationship, and the hit Spider-Man is the best example of the potential they have together. On the other hand, the well-known opponent, Microsoft, is planning to release worldwide the next powerful generation of Xbox, maybe next year.
Also, after the Netflix model, the game industry is adopting the same idea of streaming service.
Finally, this is not new because Sony did just that more than five years ago by launching this kind of service. Users can play a lot of titles by avoiding consoles or discs.
PlayStation Now streaming service gives you the possibility to stream titles on the current consoles or the PC. The Stadia platform has the same purpose, and Apple is not staying behind. Apple has a plan for a new streaming service called Apple Arcade, and it will launch this year.
