Coy or truly confused, Nintendo's maestro has disputed Insomniac's cry for attention
, firmly denying that Super Mario Galaxy's
spherical worlds were torn out of a page from the Sony developer's Ratchet & Clank
book. Miyamoto claims he and the gang were working to disprove the 'games are flat' theory back on N64, when Insomniac was merely taking its first baby steps into the industry (and, Ludwig
, years before Sonic Adventure 2
pulled off 'the rounded level' – FYI). "I'm sorry but I have to admit that I've never seen the game in question," Miyamoto told Official Nintendo Magazine UK
when questioned about Ratchet & Clank
, "Is it a PC game?"
