GDC: PS3 Firmware to launch alongside Resistance 2 patch

Wednesday, 25th March 2009 07:10 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Joystiq’s backed up a claim we were told last night that Firmware 2.70 will release this week, reporting that Resistance 2′s upcoming patch and the hardware update will arrive together, most likely today or tomorrow.

“Resistance 2 is the first game to fully log-in two PSN accounts. LBP only logs you in locally, and does not register both accounts as online through PSN,” Insomniac Games’ James Stevenson told the site.

“This is a big difference, and what is required for split-screen online co-op with other folks.

“And it was dependent on a Sony update, hence why it wasn’t in when the game shipped.”

The Resistance 2 patch launches tomorrow. Hold onto your hats, Firmware fans.

    I’m glad IG took note of everyone complaining on their forums, though splitscreen is still full of fail if they dont get rid of those damned massive black bars at the side of the screen.

    Logging in to two PSN accounts, eh?

    They’re slowly catching up with 360 and Live, which is good.

    Hopefully this will mean that in PES 2010 we will finally see the return of online co-op!

    I like the sound of two people logged in at the same time, I hope it proves to be true.

    Soooo, does this patch also mean we can now save the progress for player 2 in offline co-op also??
