So it Saddens me to know that SuperBot is now gone from this game. They are a small, independent company that did great for their first game. Now that they are leaving this game, there are a couple good and bad things about it.
-Santa Monica is a pretty great studio, they aren't your average piece of crap company. They have good ideas and might actually bring a couple good things to the game.
-Superbot wasn't a very competent company, and didn't really update us on when things were going to happen.
-Since Santa Monica is closer to Sony and is first party, that means more money. More money= characters like crash, spyro, etc.
-Some of Superbot's employees will probably migrate to Santa Monica, so we will still have the same employees with the same experience.
-They are a LOT less likely to listen to fans now. Which means: No character buffs or nerfs after this based on fan demand.
-It could become like LittleBigPlanet, which is now owned by Sony. Sony only releases DLC for LBP now and doesn't fix any glitches or exploits.
-If we don't have very many of the same employees working at Santa Monica, they might not know what they're doing.
