Insomniac's Ted Price on the scariness of evolution

Fuse interview: a great shooter that's doomed to fail?

The reason that this will not do well is that it's a drop in the ocean, sure it has a few new features here and there and maybe a little genuine innovation but nowadays every man and his dog is touting the same stuff and that means that new IP's that aren't actually anything new are destined to fail to the already established ones. It may be a great shooter, it may have excellent mechanics and AI and everything else but none of that is new, none of it is different and that's why it seems bland and that there is no buzz, because no-one is interested, frankly I'm surprised that this game even got this far into development.
