What do you reckon, Sony?
Blah blah blah
We all know that the Internet can be an exhausting place to exist. There are opinions everywhere you turn, and it can be difficult to determine your own views as a result. What, then, do you do when you’re a developer and forums are aflame with complaints and criticisms about your latest game? In an interesting interview with Games...
Our spider-sense is tingling
Insomniac Games is enjoying a studio-wide playthrough of Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4 this week. An interesting playtest exercise, it seems like all employees have been relieved of their duties in order to try out the upcoming exclusive – potentially in its entirety. We assume everyone will be making notes, and...
What do you reckon, Sony?
In many ways, Spider-Man will likely end up being the spiritual successor to Insomniac Games’ well-liked Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive, as it’s being made by much of the same team and is similarly all about open world traversal. But that hasn’t stopped the Burbank-based studio from signalling that it’s...
There was a little period towards the tail of the PlayStation 3 era and the beginning of the PlayStation 4 generation where it felt like Insomniac Games had parted ways with Sony for good: Sunset Overdrive was announced as an Xbox One exclusive, the studio formed a tight relationship with Oculus, and no one seemed to want to show Ratchet &...
Don't expect a cross-publisher crossover
With two different publishers and developers involved, it's no surprise to learn that Insomniac Games' upcoming Spider-Man game is unrelated to Square Enix's newly announced The Avengers. But just in case you needed any clarification, the Ratchet & Clank developer has confirmed as much on Twitter, telling...
Under the sea
Insomniac Games surely must be the busiest developer in the industry right now. It's only just finished up Ratchet & Clank and it's already busy beavering away on Spider-Man, and that's excluding the handful of Oculus Rift titles that it's working on as well. Song of the Deep is yet another title being developed by the industrious...
"All new story, all new world"
With Spider-Man: Homecoming due to release in cinemas next year, many have been wondering whether Spider-Man - announced during Sony's E3 2016 press conference - will tie into the upcoming Marvel flick. The PlayStation 4 exclusive is being developed by Insomniac Games, the team behind Ratchet & Clank, as well as...
We assumed that Sony and Insomniac's upcoming Spider-Man game was a well-timed one-off, but it sounds like there may be more to come in the future. In an interview with Games Industry.biz, Marvel Games' head Jay Ong has hinted that the PlayStation 4 exclusive may merely represent the beginning of a long-running partnership – with more...
Insomniac Games' staff has likely been living up to its name more than usual over the past month. With the announcement of two new titles for the Oculus Rift and release of the game and film of Ratchet & Clank, the veteran developer has been burning the midnight oil to say the least. Therefore, it's no wonder that it should take some...
Qwark it is
Desperate times call for desperate measures – and these really are the most desperate of times. It may very well be Good Friday, but it's certainly not looking like a Good News Day. There's only one thing for it, then – peruse the replies of various Twitter accounts hoping to find at least one 140 character tidbit that we can write...
Ratcheting up the anticipation
Insomniac Games is running test screenings for the Ratchet & Clank Movie in Los Angeles this weekend, and it's Tweeted out some new artwork from the forthcoming flick in order to celebrate. In the snaps, we get our first look at Chairman Drek,
Release date soon
It's going to be really interesting to see how Sony handles the Ratchet & Clank Movie, as we reckon that the platform holder could have a hit on its hands. No, the organisation's furry hero isn't a household name – but he certainly has the potential to be one if handled with the appropriate care and attention. Fortunately,...
Kept you waiting, huh?
Insomniac Games has finally broken silence on its forthcoming Ratchet & Clank reboot for the PlayStation 4. The release was originally announced during Sony's E3 press conference last year, but has been missing in action ever since. With the Burbank-based developer done promoting other platforms, though, it finally seems...
Empty those wallets
If you've got some money left over after the post-Christmas spending spree, and have the burning desire to promptly banish it straight into the Netherverse, allow us to recommend this absolutely stunning statue of Sony's erstwhile mascot duo Ratchet and Clank. Based upon the cover art from the original game, the hand-painted...
Ratchet and clanger
Someone may want to get SCEA boss Shawn Layden on the blower, as Sony appears to have forgotten that Insomniac Games is working for the guys in green these days. The platform holder launched the first instalment in its Hallowe’en sale earlier today – and acknowledged the occasion with an image employing Xbox One exclusive...
Insomniac Games may have temporarily switched system allegiances, but that doesn’t mean that it’s done with PlayStation entirely. Writing on its official blog, the developer has issued a rallying cry to its fans, encouraging them to give Harmonix’s flagging Kickstarter campaign one final push. Regular readers
Hale to the king
Forget about the Fall of Man, as Sony is set to pull the plug on the Resistance trilogy’s online multiplayer servers tomorrow. Despite originally being set to say goodbye at the end of March, it seems that developer Insomniac Games managed to convince Sony to keep the titles online for an extra week or so – and it’s been using...
Lombax to the future
Late last year, we learned that Insomniac Games had originally planned to bring Ratchet & Clank's PlayStation 3 swansong Into the Nexus to the PlayStation Vita. While that rumour never eventuated, it now seems that the studio may also be thinking about bringing the
Lost to the Netherverse
In arguably the most inconspicuous release of the year, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus arrived on the PlayStation 3 last month with almost non-existent fanfare. We thought that it was pretty good, awarding it an admirable 7/10, but found its short length put a bit of a damper on the whole affair. However, if you mi
Into the nexus
In an announcement that would make Captain Qwark cry, legendary writer TJ Fixman has confirmed that he’s set to depart Insomniac Games. The voice behind seven of the Ratchet & Clank titles has been lured away from game development by his screenwriter ambitions – but insists that he’ll continue to play a key role in...
And it's not a spin-off
Just when you thought that this year’s gigantic PlayStation 3 lineup couldn’t possibly get any bigger, Insomniac Games has announced that it’s working on a brand new title for the current generation console. Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus – which has been the subject of much teasing over the past few days – is...
Insomniac Games' next PlayStation 3 project all but confirmed
Insomniac Games may be soaking up Sunset Overdrive’s rays over on the Xbox One, but that doesn’t mean that it’s done with the PlayStation 3 just yet. Yesterday’s mysterious promotional poster has been updated, including a link to Insomniac G
Even though the announcement had been heavily rumoured for some time, it was strange seeing Insomniac Games announce Sunset Overdrive as an Xbox One exclusive earlier today. Company gaffer Ted Price has always been a regular on Sony’s stage, so seeing him – along with Phil Harrison and Hideo Kojima – promoting Microsoft’s machine...
Hoping to light a spark
Despite being hit by a tirade of middling reviews, Insomniac Games is aiming to stick with its fledgling Fuse franchise. Writing on the company’s official website earlier today, a candid Ted Price admitted that the developer is aware of the negative response to the title – but the studio’s going to stick with the...
Decided to move on, though
Insomniac Games considered making Resistance 4, but decided to try something new instead. The sequel – which presumably would have deployed on the PlayStation 4 – was a key topic of conversation at the Burbank-based outfit after the completion of Resistance 3, but the developer ultimately decided to head in a...
Ratchet & Clank hasn’t quite been the same since 2009’s outstanding A Crack in Time. While we applaud series creator Insomniac Games for experimenting with different approaches, both All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault struggled to live up to the admittedly lofty expectations set by the series’ sensational predecessors...
We’ve been known to take a cynical tone when it comes to video game movies, but this one appears to be actually happening. Insomniac Games has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the Ratchet & Clank Movie is set to guffaw its way into theatres in 2015. Even more incredibly, it actually looks like it could be pretty good...
Here’s something you didn’t expect to learn today: Insomniac Games was working on a pinball game. Entitled 1080Pinball (geddit?) the game was in development while the studio was adding the final touches to Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction and Resistance 2. The game was designed to be the “most realistic simulation of pinball...
Insomniac Games is done with Resistance, and, presumably, PlayStation exclusivity with it. Gaffer Ted Price made that much clear in a frank and personal message directed at fans last week. All emphasis now turns to the company’s debut multiplatform project – set to be published by EA – Overstrike. We’ve still not seen much of the...
Yesterday, Insomniac Games sent shockwaves through the games industry by revealing in an interview that it would not be progressing with the Resistance franchise
In order to quell some of the burgeoning speculation, company gaffer Ted Price has today confirmed the news in a calm and personal video recorded for fans. "Some of you may have seen the headlines we inadvertently made through an..
Despite Insomniac Games pledging its future to multiplatform development following the release of Resistance 3, we always held out hope that the long-term Sony partner would come back to the franchise in the future
But nuh-huh, Insomniac's gaffer Ted Price has revealed to VG247 that the developer is done with the alternate history franchise. We wont be making any more Resistances, he told the..
Insomniac Games has announced the latest DLC pack for the brilliant Resistance 3
Entitled the Brutality Pack, the $3.99 expansion brings Horde-inspired co-op to the bleak shooter's roster of modes. Faced with a never-ending stream of Grims, you'll need to keep your cool in an overcast Wales to stem the threat. The expansion pack will see the sledgehammer added to Resistance 3's multiplayer..
With both Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One already sitting on store shelves, developer Insomniac Games' parting gift to PlayStation fans is complete
The company's next project is multiplatform co-operative shooter Overstrike. But while the title will still naturally launch on Sony's system, SCEE boss Jim Ryan has expressed his disappointment at Insomniac's decision to release on..
MyResistance, the official community for Insomniac Games' Resistance franchise, has been pulled offline due to an alleged hacking incident
While compromised user data doesn't appear to be the issue in this instance, a Kotaku report notes that the website was doling out malware on vistors' computers yesterday. The website claims that Insomniac acted promptly when one of its users alerted them of the..
Insomniac's been pretty great about adding new maps to Resistance 3 with each new patch
And from Friday it's chucking another couple of locations into the game, completely gratis. Patch 1.05 will add a new 16-player map called Creek to the game, in addition to a four-player map called Granary. Both will be available to players for free once they've downloaded the patch. Thanks Insomniac. But the..
With both Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One already on store shelves, developer Insomniac Games' relationship with Sony appears to have come to an end
While the developer might end up working on additional PlayStation exclusive products, it seems like the studio is keen to move on to its own set of new IP. Announced at E3, Overstrike is set to be the first original title in the..
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is out in North America today
We were going to post some trailers and screenshots to celebrate the game's launch, but you can get all of that from the PlayStation Blog. Instead, we're more interested in this Japanese commercial. Labelling it "bonkers" would be selling it short. Also: Ratchet's Japanese eyebrows continue to fascinate us.
Despite taking the Ratchet & Clank series in a completely new direction, All 4 One will still be laced with a selection of a jaw-dropping set-piece moments
In its latest trailer, developer Insomniac Games has shown off some of the game's most exciting scenes. The variety looks great — we're really looking forward to finally getting our hands on the full version of All 4 One later in the..
Insomniac Games has released a new patch for its PlayStation 3 exclusive first-person shooter Resistance 3
The new patch addresses a number of issues with the online component of the game, as well as implementing two new maps: the Creek and the Granary. The patch compliments the game's first DLC pack, available from the PlayStation Store today. The Survival Pack introduces a brand new multiplayer..
As with any other big release, Sony and Inomniac Games is prepping a Collector's Edition for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
The package includes a copy of the game, a 3D lenticular cover, an 8" Ratchet plushie, a bunch of DLC items including character skins and weapons, four exclusive PSN avatars and a dynamic theme. The downside? It costs a whopping $119.99. Now look, we think the plushie..
Get your Sharp Shooter ready!
Insomniac Games has finally confirmed that the 1.04 patch is going to be rolled out this weekend, fixing the ADS issues when using the PlayStation Move control method in Resistance 3. Aside from fixing the Move issues, the patch will also introduce a few balance fixes to matchmaking, as well other minor tweaks to better...
Introducing the Aldaros Plains, one of the first environments you'll explore on Planet Magnus in Insomniac's upcoming co-operative action adventure title, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
Here the rules of gravity are bent, resulting in some delightfully floaty shoot-outs. The final boss of the area is a menacing beast known as an Octomoth, a giant creature that looks like a cross between an octopus..
We're getting quietly excited for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
But one question's been niggling our noggin since the game's announcement: why is Dr. Nefarious working with the heroes? "Ratchet, Clank and Qwark have arrived on the planet of Luminopolis so that now Galactic President Qwark can pick up an Intergalactic Tool of Justice Award. Of course, there is no such award as its all an..
Don't worry if you're an unsociable so-and-so -- you'll still be able to play Insomniac Game's co-operative platformer, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, in single-player if you prefer
The game will work with an AI partner helping you through co-operative puzzles and the like. It totally won't be the same as playing the game in four-player co-op, but at least it won't render the game useless if you..
Resistance 3's barely had time to cool on store shelves, but already Insomniac Games has announced the title's first shot of DLC
Entitled the 'Survival Pack' — and due out on October 4th — the DLC adds the 'Invasion Mode' to Resistance 3's multiplayer for just $3.99. 'Invasion Mode' is a team-based resource management iteration of Resistance 3's...
Topping the brilliant Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time was always going to be a challenge for Insomniac Games
The developer's previous entry in its highly acclaimed platforming franchise neared perfection in terms of level variety, design, and combat. Short of sprucing up the graphics and adding more of the same, it's hard to see where else Insomniac could take the Ratchet & Clank formula..
Due next month
Resistance 3 is finally at-hand, but developer Insomniac Games is already preparing follow-up content to extend your Resistance experience. On 4th October we'll see the Survival Pack launch for $3.99, introducing a new game type called Invasion, where you must hold nodes to earn points. You'll also get an XMB theme and four new skins,...
General Butler rallies his troops
Self-proclaimed Vice-President of Sony PlayStation, funny man Kevin Butler returns in his latest video commercial for the upcoming PlayStation Move compatible shooter, Resistance 3. Butler dons a horse while armed with the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter, and rallies up his troops to resist the Chimeran invasion...
Earlier in the year we took a look at our top-five most anticipated PlayStation games of Holiday 2011
Since the beginning of time (sort of!) developers and publishers have used the run-up to Christmas to release their very best games. This year the charts are set to be dominated by some monstrous titles, such as Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Batman: Arkham City. But what of the games that..
Insomniac Games has gone live with another trailer outlining Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One's weapons
It's nice to see Insomniac's talent for creating crazy guns is still in tact. Catch the video after the jump.
Not the best Resistance 3 commercial to kick-off Kevin Butler's tenure in SCEA's new Long Live Play initiative, but it gets the point across
Butler's on a horse, pleading with the resistance to use their PlayStation Move Sharp-Shooters against the Chimera. Catch the TV spot after the jump.
Sounds like those of you with tickets to Sony's Resistance 3 theatre experience in London this weekend are in for a thrill ride
The platform holder's teamed up with performing arts group Punchdrunk to put on a a participatory play set in the Resistance universe. Attendees will be required to make decisions about which survivors to save and which to leave behind. The experience is set to work like a..
With Insomniac targeting a more personal narrative for Resistance 3, the developer has gone live with a new diary outlining the game's soundtrack
The score was composed by Boris Salchow and recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London. Hit the jump for a little more context about the process.
There have been plenty of live-action Resistance 3 adverts
The first batch were exclusively in live action. But that won't stop the marketing execs that be from peddling more live action Capelli to your screen. "Silence Before Storm" features train cars, the American midwest, Chimera, and the dystopian lifestyle we've come to expect of the series. Check the video after the jump.
Amazon has made the Resistance 3 Doomsday Edition available for pre-order
Bundled with the PlayStation Move navigation and motion peripherals, a Move sharp shooter peripheral, and of course the Resistance 3 game, the set will knock you back a clear $149.99. Though who wouldn't want all those goodies? You can check out the bundle here.
The wait for Resistance 3 is starting to become torturous
Ever since we put the lid on inFamous 2 in June, we've been waiting patiently for Resistance 3 to release. As big fans of Insomniac's alternate history series, a small glimpse of the beta did enough to confirm our anticipation, and we've been in hiding ever since. But for those who can't resist the opportunity to get some early access with..
Insomniac and Sony's released a second weapons trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
The latest trailer focuses on goodies such as the Pyroblaster and Arc Lasher. We've got a hands-on preview of All 4 One forthcoming, in the meantime marvel at the creative destruction after the jump.
Insomniac Games has taken to Twitter to confirm a new Resistance 3 single-player demo
The demo, unlike the beta, will support both Playstation Move and 3D play, two features absent from the beta that are set to be included in the final copy. The developer's Twitter page released a few further details. It will be available on the PSN...
Resistance 3 could be Insomniac's last title on the series
With the studio now preparing to go multiplatform, creative director Marcus Smith told Gaming Union that he "can definitely see" the Resistance franchise being handed off to another developer. "As far as Resistance being the flagship, I think Insomniac has always branched out," he said. "I loved the Spyro the Dragon..
The most striking thing about Resistance 3 is the way it looks
Insomniac's poured love into every facet of the game's presentation; from the surprisingly minimalistic hand-drawn menu back-drops, to the slick and industrial user-interface — the game's presentation is lavish. We'd read some criticism of the game's visuals prior to going hands-on...
In the latest Resistance 3 developer diary, Insomniac Games has offered a little more background on the human weapons from the game
While the likes of the Carbine and Marksman will be familiar to fans of the Resistance series, it's the introduction of the sledgehammer that comes as a complete surprise, allowing you to smash Chimeran brains all over the wall in a brand new way. Check out the new..
Insomniac's released a new trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
The trailer serves as an introduction to the game's co-operative premise, and, in traditional Ratchet & Clank fashion, is laugh-out-loud funny. Watch the trailer after the jump.
You may have noticed that the boxart for Resistance 3 is a bit unusual compared to everything else that's out there
The cover was crafted by Olly Moss, a British artist know for his simplistic style. In order to celebrate Resistance 3's imminent launch, Insomniac has released a new Resistance 3 trailer inspired by Moss' work. It looks like the opening credits of a James Bond movie, which makes it a..
Sony kicked off its PlayStation Vita software offering by announcing Resistance: Burning Skies, a brand-new title in Insomniac's first-person alternate history franchise developed by Nihilistic Software
The game puts players in control of Tom Riley, a New York fireman faced with the threat of Chimera's initial invasion on New York. Nihilistic showed off a lengthy demonstration during Sony's press..
Insomniac's publicly released a short behind-the-scenes documentary detailing Resistance 3's motion capture process
The footage first debuted at Comic-Con, but is now available for everybody to watch. It's worth a watch if you're curious about the creation of cut-scenes in games. We're suckers for these behind-the-scenes documentary videos, so this is right up our alley. We do wish developers would..
One of our favourite things about Resistance 3's multiplayer is the way it takes you all around the world
While the campaign is set in North America, the multiplayer is set in other areas of the world — giving a glimpse of human's struggle against the Chimeran forces across the globe. Insomniac's already revealed maps set in Wales, Africa and Colombia, and has today confirmed an arena set within..
Resistance 3 is definitely rolling out to stores next month — the game just went gold, and to get you even more amped-up for its release Sony has put together a brand new trailer. Insomniac has spent the past six months tweaking and refining the game based on user feedback, and the game will in fact receive a patch on day one to...
After more than three years in development, Insomniac has announced that Resistance 3 has gone gold in time for its early September release
That means copies of the game are being pressed at manufacturing plants around the world as we type. The good news is that Insomniac's work is not done. Community manager James Stevenson noted on the PlayStation Blog that the developer will be keeping a keen..
We haven't really seen much of Resistance 3's story thus far
Yes, we know Capelli will feature as the game's protagonist, and that he's now married, but other than that we've only really seen gameplay slices from Insomniac's upcoming alternate-history first-person shooter. But this latest trailer uploaded by IGN details the back-story to Resistance 3's plot. With the war over and the Chimera..

Itching for Resistance 3? It's a month away — not long now. Want to see the game's Move controls in action before you can buy the game? Then scroll down, friends. Our friend over at iWaggle3D has put together a Resistance 3 PlayStation Move analysis video showing how the game handles with Move and Navigation in hand, from the...
In the first of a new series of shorts, Insomniac Games has showcased Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One's weapon roster
The series is famous for its ingenious weapon gadgets, and based on the footage in this trailer All 4 One will be no different. Sony's promising more of these video shorts on the future, so it looks like All 4 One's going to have quite the roster too.
Sony's announced that the public beta for Insomniac's hotly anticipated Resistance 3 will kick-off in August
There are a lot of regional differences, so bare with us while we flesh out the details. In North America, those that pre-ordered SOCOM 4 will get first-access to the beta on August 4th. They will be followed by European PlayStation Plus subscribers on August 10th. Finally, North American..
Resistance 3 marches into battle in September, but you can get a head start on the Chimera by taking part in the new Global Resistance strategy game over at MyResistance.net. The free to play web game will allow players to unlock extra content in the upcoming shooter, including XP boosters, new titles and character skins for multiplayer...
If you were unable to get to the San Diego Comic-Con last night to witness Insomniac Games' Resistance 3 panel, the PlayStation Blog's got your back
James Stevenson has posted a short highlights video from the panel, featuring Creative Director Marcus Smith, Art Director Grant Hollis, Animation Director Kevin Grow, as well as voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman..
Sometimes we wake up in the middle of the night covered in a cold sweat, itching to play Resistance
Insomniac's first-person shooter series has been a staple of our PlaytStation 3 diet for years now. We ploughed hours into Fall Of Man, only to spend a similarly ridiculous amount of time with Resistance 2. But the latest title — Resistance 3 — has been a long-time coming, and that's left us..
Sony's put out a trailer for Resistance 3's bumper "Survivor Edition" collector's set
The pack is crammed with luxury goodies such as Resistance themed toy soldiers, Capelli's backpack and an SRPA branded hip-flask. Admittedly, much of the content included in this pack is needless tat — but it's dangerously tempting for Resistance fans like ourselves. There's more on Resistance 3's retail SKUs..
Resistance 3's art-direction is stupidly strong, is it not? The grainy, flickery effect in this Lab Video gives the footage an old-fashioned vibe
It's almost like you're watching a genuine 1950's science experiment. The weapon at the forefront of this trailer is the Mutator, a bioligical blaster that causes the Chimera to suddenly sprout fatal blisters. The animation on the Chimera is really rather..
We suspect if you're still undecided about Resistance 3, you might want to watch this half-hour video of the game's first level
If you've already decided to pick up Insomniac's latest shooter though, perhaps skip on the details of the embedded video because this is spoilerific. You've been warned. A bunch of previews for Resistance's opening seven levels broke overnight. They were super positive..
With the backlash of Resistance 2 still ringing in the ears of Insomniac Games, this must be quite a nervous time for the Burbank-based studio
High-profile members of the American press got access to the first seven stages of Resistance 3 this week, and have gone live with their impressions this evening. Thankfully, it looks like Insomniac's corrected the wrongs of its predecessor, with the..
Fight the opposition
If the third entry in the Killzone series wasn’t enough sci-fi shooter action to keep you busy, then the upcoming release of Insomniac’s Resistance 3 is shaping up to Move you back into action in just a few short months. We recently survived some hands-on time with the Resistance 3 demo and have returned to give you some...
One of the most exciting prospects about Resistance 3 is the return of Fall Of Man's "Weapon Wheel"
The feature, which was conspicuously absent in Resistance 2, resulted in a massive back-lash from fans of the series. The "Weapon Wheel" is such a key aspect to the Resistance series, that Insomniac's managed to base an entire developer diary on the inclusion of the feature. The "Full..
When it's released in September, Resistance 3 has a few tricks up its sleeve to entice PS3 owners to pick it up. As well as arriving with demos of Killzone 3, Motorstorm Apocalypse and Infamous 2 on the Blu-ray, letting you try some of Sony's biggest 2011 titles out before you buy, the game will also come with a fantastic-sounding...
If you're planning on picking up Resistance 3 in September -- and haven't got around to trying out Killzone 3, MotorStorm Apocalypse and inFamous 2 -- then you're in luck
Demos for all three titles will be included on Resistance 3's Blu-ray, according to information published by the BBFC. Resistance 3 itself received an 18 rating by the classification board, with the final product boasting over 90..
Sony's confirmed that Resistance 3 will be the first PS3 title to make use of a new "network pass program" designed to combat used sales
The PSN Pass — which emerged as part of a boxart leak yesterday — is very similar to the type of system employed by EA, Warner Bros and other third-party publishers. Sony's employed the use of online passes in...
Sony's voiced its support of EA's Online Pass system in the past, and now it looks like it's about to introduce the used game sale combating feature into Resistance 3
A hardware bundle packshot — featuring a 320GB PS3 and copy of Resistance 3 — advertises something called the "PSN Pass", which sounds a lot like a one-time use code designed to unlock the packaged game's multiplayer..
They both started in England
An epic game needs an epic soundtrack, and Insomniac believes the score for Resistance 3 fits the bill. Composed by long-time Insomniac collaborator Boris Salchow, who previously worked on Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time and Resistance 2, the score was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, most famous for hosting...
Insomniac's released the first of a series of developer diaries for its upcoming first-person shooter, Resistance 3
The interviews have been shot in Insomniac's "war room", the location where the studio laid out the entirety of Resistance 3's campaign. This first diary details the Story and Environments of Resistance 3. The production is super high quality, so hats-off to the folks over..
There's a lot of unwarranted vitriol being thrown at Insomniac Games over its new multiplatform project
From where we're sitting, it's unfair. Insomniac has been one of the strongest supporters of the PlayStation platform for years, and none of that goodwill should evaporate just because it's going to release a game on the XBOX 360. After all, let's not forget Insomniac's new game is coming to the..
There's the charm of Ratchet & Clank mixed in with the grit of Resistance in Insomniac's first EA Games published project
Entitled Overstrike, the c0-op based title looks like a tongue-in-cheek take on the shooter genre — with chunky, cartoony characters teaming up in a colourful world. The game's reveal — shown moments ago at EA's E3 press conference — didn't include any gameplay, but..
Insomniac's released a short trailer for Resistance 3 ahead of tonight's big Sony PlayStation E3 press conference
The trailer focuses on protagonist Joseph Capelli, and sets Resistance 3's mood pretty well. Certainly looks like the franchise is making a return to its survival horror origins. Over on NeoGAF, Insomniac community manager James Stevenson revealed that Sony would be showing Resistance 3..
Sounds like legendary PlayStation developer Insomniac Games has been keeping itself busy
Not content with pushing out Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One this Fall, the developer has also been hard at work on its brand new multiplatform project. According to the studio's Twitter account, that title will be announced at tomorrow's EA press conference. "We are excited to reveal our..
Insomniac's released a new batch of multiplayer footage for Resistance 3
The first thing we noticed about the gameplay is just how chunky all the weapons sound. Everything from the standard assault rifle to magnum (with Resistance 2's exploding bullets) sound deadly. It's a far-cry from the previous game's rather tepid feeling arsenal. The new footage is from the game's Botoga, Colombia map..
July 11th is when UK fans of the Resistance franchise can get their hands on the third in the series
The Resistance 3 demo will be packaged inside copies of Battle: Los Angeles on Blu-ray. The demo promises about 30 minutes of gameplay, as protagonist Capelli takes a boat-ride through a flooded Mississipi. Apparently Battle: Los Angeles is a bit rubbish but... Resistance 3. Yeah, smart move Sony.
If you're eager to catch up on humanities epic struggle against the Chimera in Insomniac's alternative history first-person shooter, now might be your best chance
Sony's confirmed a July release for the Insomniac double pack, which includes both Resistance: Fall Of Man and Resistance 2 for a lowly $40. The pack also includes a couple of multiplayer skins for both Resistance 2 and the upcoming..
Sony's confirmed that Insomniac's upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive shooter, Resistance 3, will release on September 9th in the UK
The rest of Europe will get it a bit earlier, on September 7th. The US version will release on September 6th, as was previously confirmed. In addition to the release date, Sony's also blown the lid off the game's menagerie of pre-order bonuses and special editions..
Release date confirmed too
No big release is complete these days without a pre-order bonus and array of special editions, and Sony Europe has just announced the giveaways for Resistance 3, due to land in Europe in September. The following bonuses are available for customers who pre-order at various outlets, along with the official descriptions from...
