It's no secret that the folks at Insomniac Games are some great chaps. Recently, they were named one of the top companies to work for in the United States, an amazing feat for any videogame developer (usually known for pulling the wings off of their employees). And just by looking at the impressive Resistance: Fall of Man and the upcoming Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, you can tell you that they know how to work with that tough nut to crack, the PlayStation 3.

Now Insomniac are showing that sharing is caring, and have opened a new research and development page on their official Web site. The page will feature production-specific presentations, technical papers, detailed how-tos, and more.

"The 'R&D' page on the Insomniac Web site is meant to share knowledge with fellow studios about PS3 development," says Insomniac's Ted Price, "while giving fans a detailed look into how we make our games."

So detailed, in fact, that the site will be updated soon with even more content, including a detailed tutorial on the level lighting in Resistance: Fall of Man. If "Configuring VNC for the PS3" floats your boat (I don't even know what that means), or you're just trying to get your PS3 game to not run at 20 FPS, listen up -- Insomniac is here to help.
