Resistance 3 multiplayer demo to be PlayStation Plus exclusive

Monday, 11th April 2011 11:47 GMT By Stace Harman

European product manager Elliott Linger has confirmed that the upcoming Resistance 3 demo will be a PS Plus exclusive, speaking on the EU PS Blog.

“If you’ve checked out the US Blog, you will see that the R3 multiplayer demo will be accessible to SOCOM: Special Forces (aka SOCOM 4) purchasers in North America,” Linger advised.

“In PAL, this demo will be opened up to PlayStation Plus subscribers at exactly the same time – additional info (such as how and when) will be unveiled in due course.”

This news is likely to go down a storm with every PlayStation 3 owner. Except with those that have not signed up to the premium PlayStation Plus service, of course.

There’s no word on when this’ll become available to non-subs.

Resistance ships for PS3 later this year.

    It’ll be coming to non-subscribers at a later date, surely? If not… blimey.

    Yeah usually its a week after the Plus debut the demo appears on the main store.

    Unless its a beta.

    In the US it is being packed in to some SOCOM 4 boxes and is being billed more as a Beta than a demo as such – though the lines are very blurred these days. Which means they want to limit access to a degree.

    I don’t agree with regular demo access being exclusive or even just available earlier for PSN+ subs. That’s speaking as a subscriber myself – access to limited Beta’s yes, demos no.

    Wow, I really miss the old days when game companies put out the demos BEFORE the games release and for FREE.
    Now these greedy ass companies squeeze every last penny from gamers at every turn.
    That’s so lame Sony and other companies.

    Gramatically that makes no sense whatsoever.

    But I think I see what your going for there in your troll attempt.

    Two strikes.

    resistance 3 will probably have an awesome mp. i enjoyed the shit out of R2´s mp . the coop was awesome as well – it wasnt flawlessa but this has so much potential. they probably nailed it this time. i love insomniac. the weapons in their games are top. they really got a good feeling for making a game feel and sound and look well. unfortunately i don´t own a ps3 anymore. can´t wait for insomniac going multiplat with a new aaa ip…
