The Games Cabin's Chris speculates on the possibilty of Sony Bend's PS4 game and concludes, given the little evidence there is, that the first-party studio may be taking another shot at the Resistance franchise.
Thought it was going to be that horror game that was like "the last of us". Man these rumours are getting out of control. Can't wait to see what actually is real on Monday
I'd say it's possible to turn the Resistance series into a survival-horror. It's got everything a good one would need; a fearsome, grotesque enemy - the chimera, a world in ruins, I reckon it'd be a good shift for the franchise. Though that's just me, others might call it blasphemy to have the Resistance games stray away from the first-person shooter genre.
I never thought of that. You know that's what got me so intrigued with resistance 3 because it looked really gritty at first. That franchise could work as a survival horror.
Done right, a third person Resistance game could be very similar to Gears of War, or at least what people thought Gears of War was aiming for before it went in a more absurd direction. They could go the survival horror route of course, but I'd much prefer some intense human vs. chimera firefights that make use of the crazy weaponry that the franchise is known for.
i thought they would be making Syphon Filter. I hope they bring this series back because we have no idea what will happen to MGS after V. Syphon Filter is a good series
Horror Based Resistance game?!? YES PLEASE!
It would really make sense specially after Sony trademarked 'RESISTANCE' a few months ago. As long as its TPS its cool for me
Resistance 3 felt more horror to me than military FPS
I agree. That first resistance game especially had a lot of jump moments. If they added those invisible chimera from R2 that would be insane.
Did I heard TPS? Resistance, Syphon Filter and TLOU are all cool and so... But... SOCOM OR BUST! Come on Sony, do it! I dare you! ... Pretty please with sugar on top?
They already did that with Resistance Retribution on the PSP. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Resistance Retribution was awesome so i am confident they will be able to deliver an amazing experience, if indeed they are working on resistance before E3 just take every rumor as just that a rumor.
Agreed. As regards the article it doesn't make sense to say, "given the little evidence there is", as that is like saying "since we have no clue we might as well make something up."
As long as the story is not a crap as R2s story and turn it into a COD/Halo I'm fine with it, it, not knocking on those games, I just hate when games try to clone those 2 games due to their success, and resistance should of kept its own identity. R3 was great, a story so awesome, but a multiplayer that was pretty crappy.
wow cool. i kinda would like a resistance collection for ps4 too. never really got around to play the series, even tho i have owned a ps3 since launch. maybe its time.
Resistance has a great story, would be cool if they reboot it into a 3rd person action horror game.
"Resistance has a great story" https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Didnt care much for Fall of man, but I loved R2 and R3 and this would be a huge announcement for me.
Passing Resistance over to Sony Bend is a questionable idea. Considering the fact that Insomniac Games produced 3 excellent Resistance titles on the PlayStation®3 Home Media Entertainment Terminal, it would make more sense if Sony hired them to simply make Resistance 4 and continue with the series. If anything, Dark Sniper seriously hopes that Sony Bend is going back to doing what they do best. Making Syphon Filter games. $niper
A new Syphon Filter is one of the things I wish to see most from Sony this generation.
New SF would be awesome! As far as a 3rd person Resistence on PS4? Color me intrigued!
"Playstation®3 Home Media Entertainment Terminal" wow someones legally accurate I guess.
That does not make any sense. It does not correspond to the rumours that suggested it was a new third person, open world horror type game. Taking a first person linear franchise and changing it completely around is bogus. This is not true
i hope it is though
Please let this be true, I absolutely love the Resistance franchise. 1 & 3 were two of the best FPS games last gen. I need another!
Sounds strange but it could be interesting none the less as long as the gameplay is the same quality of the first 3 and the story is well written.
I guess it's not out of the question
I honestly would be able to die a happy man, because Resistance needs to come back. But here's the thing... It's been confirmed that what ever they are working on is an original new IP. As much I would love this to be true. Resistance is no longer a new, and They'd be using Insomniacs Nocturnal Next Gen Engine and not license UE4, as the relationship between Sony first party and second party is strong, and given that Sony owns the IP they'd go that route with insomniac somewhat involved. This speculation is a wish of mine but one that simply isn't being granted.
Wow I hope not. Resistance 3 was fantastic. Would be nice to have Insomniac back for another. Wouldn't be the same in 3rd person.
Kami-sama Yes! Just bring back the Resistance series.
Resistance was great on the PSP, excited to hear more
I hope it is Syphon Filter. Ps4 needs Gabe Logan!
I really like Resistance, the series should back.
We already had a 3rd person Resistance, and it was actually great.
I'm down for this OR Syphon Filter. Buuuut I'd REALLY like a new Syphon. So many good times on PS1.
I'd be down for it, the first Dead Space was one of the best games out of the last gen, Dead Space and TLoU mix with the Resistance story line and universe, I'm so in!
