The ongoing assembly line of Sony first-person shooters and their accompanying betas and demos is a smart move on Sony's part, keeping gamers engaged with a constant supply of anticipation-building action. Just as gamers who picked up Killzone 3 got access to the SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs beta, so those who purchase the full game will get access to try Resistance 3 before its launch.

As with previous betas, there will be a scaled roll-out for Insomniac's third shooter, encompassing PlayStation Plus subscribers and regular Joe PSN members too. We'll find out more about when the beta will start and what it will include after the launch of SOCOM next week, but if past betas are anything to go by then Move control is a shoe-in.
