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..
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.

Madden NFL 12 was the top-selling video game in North America for the month of September
But proving that those living overseas do have some semblance of taste, FIFA 12 wasn't too far behind it, finishing up in fourth. Dead Island did ridiculously well, propping up the charts in third position of the back of that trailer and, well, zombies we assume. Resistance 3 also managed to make an appearance..
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..
We told you FIFA 12 would hold onto the top of the UK sales charts for a good number of weeks
Not even an onslaught of new releases — RAGE and Dark Souls no less — could push the soccer sim from its perch, with both titles finishing second and third respectively. Elsewhere, there was room for Resistance 3 to re-emerge in the top-ten, while usual favourites Zumba Fitness and LEGO Pirates Of The..
Strike one to Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Nielsen's published its "top twenty" Chistmas video games wishlist, with Modern Warfare 3 the most coveted by 5,000 active North American gamers. Modern Warfare 3 was on the list of 27% of participants, while Battlefield 3 was on the list of just 12%. PlayStation 3 exclusives Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Resistance 3 both charted, but the..
We've no interest in the game that finished first on this week's UK sales charts, so let's jump straight into what came second: F1 2011
That was followed by Techland's Dead Island, which continued to hold onto its place in the top ten despite taking a bit of a critical beating. (We concluded that the game was fun, but far too buggy to fully recommend.) Resistance 3 finished up in eighth, while the..

Deep Silver's ambitious (but desperately buggy) Dead Island has topped the UK sales charts for the second week running, scooping up sales greater than any other title in the publisher's history -- in just two weeks
The co-operative zombie RPG is in fact outselling Resistance 3 on the PlayStation 3 platform alone — a title which still managed to climb into third on this week's UK sales charts..
It's finally that time of the year where developers and publishers alike start to release new video games
This week's UK sales chart is evidence of that alone. It's dominated by the release of brand new titles with Dead Island, Wahammer 40K: Space Marine and Resistance 3 all taking spots in the top five. They're joined by relatively new releases in...
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...
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.

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...
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..

The free show includes hands-on time with upcoming titles such as Resistance 3, The Team ICO Collection, LittleBigPlanet 2: Move Pack and Medieval Moves: Deadmunds Quest. For masochists, there's also Dark..
Insomniac has spoken out on why it has chosen to return to a more traditional health system in Resistance 3
"You can use cover or run-and-gun, and we wanted to make sure there were penalties for that. Survival is a big theme, so we took away [health regeneration]," says Marcus Smith, creative director at Insomniac. "So, we took that away and we're going back to the roots of..
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..
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..
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..
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..
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..
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..
Sony wants to educate Japanese gamers on the values of Western titles, and it intends to do so with an event dubbed the "World Game Project"
The initiative will see the platform holder bring a slew of hot Western titles to Japan's famous Akihabara district. Playable titles will include inFamous 2, Resistance 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Shadows Of The Damned. Yes, we know the latter was..
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..
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..
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..
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..
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..
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.
