Insomniac Games

Like many other popular and non-popular video gaming companies, Insomniac Games, the developers and publishers of the Ratchet & Clank series, does not actually own the franchise—Sony Computer Entertainment owns the Ratchet & Clank franchise. Because of this, their games are only published for PlayStation systems, meaning the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.

Another game series related and connected to Insomniac is Naughty Dog, developers and publishers of the Jak and Daxter series. The two game companies manufacture similar games, notice the connection between Insomniac's Spyro the Dragon and Naughty Dog's Crash Bandicoot.
