PS3 firmware update to coincide with Resistance 2 patch

Looks like a PS3 firmware update is happening today or tomorrow, folks. We reported details on the upcoming Resistance 2 patch which includes a number of features, one being multiple PSN log-ins. Many of our readers correctly chimed in, saying this is a feature not possible with the current PS3 firmware.

We got confirmation of a pending PS3 firmware update through our comments section. Insomniac Games' James Stevenson responded to our post clarifying the situation. "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. This is a big difference, and what is required for split-screen online co-op with other folks."

Here's the smoking gun: "And it was dependent on a Sony update, hence why it wasn't in when the game shipped." If the R2 patch is available on March 26th, then a new PS3 firmware update will be necessary today or tomorrow. Obviously it will allow for multiple PSN sign-ins, but will it feature any other improvements? Stay tuned.

The story is too old to be commented.

see what Did i told you guys? 2.7 is needed to run that patch for R2.
2.6 never had feature.

hopefully more games takes advantage of this feature in the future.

There were a patch to make a co op on Resistance 2, that game would be so much better. I would buy it again, because I sold it.

it will have something by the name of CCT in it not sure what it is right now but it will be there ...

mt3067d ago

are you kidding me you could play 8 co-op and online with no lag at all. what you want more than this ???

Super-Brad3067d ago

Don't let me ruin anyones hope but wasn't there a article saying that the devs just got the dev kit of 2.7, so that means the PS3 already has multiple login because there wouldn't be enough time to patch it and test it.

But because the Devs do have the 2.7 kit, we will need it soon so the devs can use whatever is in it.

WRONG, the update for it is already out. 2.7 could come out any time folks

there are multiple log-ins on littlebigplanet already stupid people! they dont need a patch for that!

Actually you guys are misinformed:
The insomniac guy replies:
No. As I said before - our patch does not require 2.7.

Right… but the required update from Sony WAS NOT 2.7, and we’ve already had it as we’ve been testing it — as many others in this thread have said.

This is clearly stated in one of his replies to the original post.

Hopefully it'll add something other than Multiple log ins =) !

Zeus Lee3067d ago

Which division/who does he work under?

Marceles3067d ago

Eh...I'll wait for an official word from Sony. Usually unofficial sites are way off but...the sad thing is it's all we can go buy since the blog never gets updated on this kind of stuff until the last minute.

morganfell3067d ago

Well the source isn't really unofficial.

Marceles3067d ago

Ah that's true, for some reason I thought the March 26th date was speculation. Thanks morg, + bubble
