GDC: PS3 Firmware to launch alongside Resistance 2 patch

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.
