It’s been revealed that Nihilistic Software will develop the upcoming Resistance title for PSP2.
Bend studios is always a safe bet. Great studio. The only games I remember from Nihilistic is Zombie Apocalypse and Conan, so they better pull themselves together if they're going to make a Resistance game for PSP2 and PlayStation Move Heroes for PS3. Seriously, those games have a name to live up to.
They get the voice actors and they should make a great game. I am not worried about the gameplay side of things. From the looks of Resistance it looks good. Plus they have every thing the need to make a quality FPS.
You'll always need talent. That's what separates Ready at Dawn from High Impact Studios. High Impact is a good studio, but Ready at Dawn is excellent. And one can clearly see the difference on how they've treated PS franchises. I don't know if Nihilistic is as good as High Impact, let alone Ready at Dawn... so it'll be exciting to find out :)
yeah didnt sony bend make resistance retribution so its kind weird that they are making an uncharted but its fine. since sony listed naughty dog as a dev of psp2 then that might mean they could make a new ip.
I think the thing is that Bend make third person shooters (Resistance: Retribution, Syphonfilter and now Uncharted) and the next Resistance is looking like it'll be first person. This is only a guess, of course.
lmao if i can't have a next-gen syphon filter on the ps3...then at least make a next-gen syphon filter on the PSP2 :D
Syphon filter 5 or whatever it is, is 2012 along with another God of War or something from Santa Monica (Heavenly Sword 2 I hope)
Syphon Filter on PSP2 would pretty much fix all the problems that the Syphon Filter PSP version had, like the lack of that analog stick.
PSP2's 2nd analog would fix alot of problems a lot of psp games had. Games like MGS:Portable and peace walker, socom, resistance, and many more.
As long as Uncharted PSP still has Nolan North voicing then I couldn't care who makes it. It's not like ND will let anyone create an awful Uncharted game anyway.
I hope they don't f up the games
Well I have every bit of confidence in Sony Bend ad they did a great job with Resistance Retribution, and Uncharted looks awesome, so no doubt it'll be a day 1 buy from me.
Damn there go the rumors of Sony Bend making Syphon Filter :(
Honestly, you'd have to be a really shitty developer in order to fuck up a Resistance game. There is so much creativity and amazing ideas that you can put into the Resistance universe. But at the same time, this is new technology were dealing with. If Bend studios can make a portable uncharted game, then so could these guys. I'm looking forward to the ngp. In most cases, I think that good will come out of the new launch titles :)
I like that the main studios doesn't make the PSP versions. Its gives someone else a chance to inject some fresh ideas into a series and doesn't distract them from the main deal which is PS3. PSP2 looks great but I wouldn't want ND and Insomniac diverting resources onto it.
Even if it's half as good as the other ncharted games, I'll be happy. I just love Drake and Co. that much. And heck, we all know Uncharted 3 is going to be amazing no matter what.
