SCEA’s Frank Simon has said the reason a fireman was chosen as the hero in Resistance: Burning Skies, is because the game needed a character that would be “willing to run into a burning building,” for one thing.

Speaking to GamerZines, Insomniac’s James Stevenson has said that if anyone thought that Resistance was the last new IP coming from the studio, you thought wrong.
“We don’t really want to talk about anything outside of A Crack In Time, but what I will say in general is that, if you think that Resistance is going to be the last new IP from Insomniac obviously that would be a silly thought,” said Stevenson.
“At some point in the future there will be new IPs, but when, where, why, how, you know, who knows?”

Speaking in an interview with Videogamer, Insomniac communinty manager James Stevenson has said that fan feedback with Resistance 2 “was like your dog turned on you.”
The game was released at the end of November last year, even recieving a 87 from Metacritic. But despite that, Stevenson admits it was a “failure” on the fans part.
“The hardcore fans of Resistance 1 were maybe a little bit disappointed. Those folks consistently expressing that – especially GAF, it was like your dog turned on you.
“That’s the feeling of it. You had this dog that loved you. You loved the dog, too, but they expressed all this affection for you. And then suddenly the dog bites your hand and it’s that feeling of, ooh, ow, that really hurts.
The critics loved Resistance 2. Some people didn’t like it, but for the most part… And the Metacritic’s higher than Resistance 1. So we got better reviews than Resistance 1, but the overall opinion of it is that it was a failure by fans, that Resistance 2 was a failure, because maybe the expectations were so high for it,” said Stevenson.
Well then, fan service all the way for Resistance 3, then.

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.

According to this GI story, something of a disaster may be on the cards for Resistance 2 in that EUK – the Woolworths-owned distributor that went into administration last week – has failed to deliver the game to UK high street stores.
Apparently Zavvi, WHSmith and Currys.digital are still awaiting their supply of the anticipated first-person shooter, originally released on Friday November 28.
A spokesperson from Deloitte, which currently serves as the administrator of EUK and Woolworths, said: “Since EUK went into administration, the administrators have either met or spoken with the majority of customers and suppliers and constructive talks are ongoing.”
Whoops. More through there.

Eurogamer’s just put its Resistance 2 review live, giving the shooter 9/10.
Overall, multiplayer is the satisfying other half to a formidable package, and Resistance 2 is precisely the sort of exclusive game that the PS3 needs. Improving tenfold on its predecessor in almost every area, it not only belongs on the shopping list of existing Resistance fans, but those who were underwhelmed with the original as well will also want to check it out, and then fight for it on the internet. It’s the way of the warrior.
Full thing through there. It’s out in Europe on November 28.

Resistance 2 has released in the States, with Insomniac’s Ted Price claiming the game will be the best shooter of the year.
“Not only did we set out to create a game that offered the most content for shooter fans in 2008, we also wanted to produce the best overall first-person shooter in 2008,” he said.
“With huge boss battles, massive enemy encounters, and three innovative and stand-alone game modes, Resistance 2 delivers a premiere shooter experience above any other with essentially three full games packed into one.”
The 50s blaster has scored well so far, but an average below 90 percent on Metacritic won’t go down well with Sony’s bean-counters.
Europeans have to wait until November 28 for the game.
