Resistance 3 is Gold, Bonus Content on the Disc

James Stevenson of Insomniac Games writes: I’m here today to bring the news that Resistance 3 has gone gold, and has been delivered to manufacturing for its September 6th release date. Everyone here at Insomniac is excited for you to get your hands on the game we’ve been working so hard on for the last three years. Even now, our work isn’t complete, as we are actively working on the Online Beta, and will be bringing a Day 1 Patch to the game to bring updates and tweaks to the final product. The public beta begins today for folks who have codes from SOCOM 4, so we’re looking forward to fragging you online.

I have a feeling sp will be sick and mp is def. funnnnn

Szarky2510d ago

Coming from couple hundred hours in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, R3 MP Beta is pretty average and almost outdated feeling. I mean 8 vs 8?

Looking forward to SP with sharpshooter though.

trollkill2510d ago

Yeah and graphics wise it doesnt look as good as some ps3 mp gems like uncharted. By the way i won bf 2 so i knw what u mean thts a diff beast in itself with many things to do lol But res 3 mp is still fun. What pulls me in are the weapons and i love the way they implemented the decoy and doppleganger.

You kidding me. You complaining about the graphics but talk as if bad company 2 is great looking or something. Unless you play bc2 on pc that game looks like ass.

Besides what is with comparing a war shooter to a alien scifi shooter? That is like comparing COD to Halo.

They are different games. They said they made it 8 on 8 to make it feel more personal. You can have a good fun multiplayer without 60 players. Look at Gears and Uncharted.

Sackthing

So you would rather they just delay the game for two months then. FACT is they need at least a month to prep and ship copies to retail. I don't see what the issue you have with what they are doing. Day one the game will be patched to be a complete game. How is it unfinished? That means before you even get to play it it will be updated. A game is never 100% finished. There are always glitches and problems that may need fixing.

kreate2510d ago

hav u played any resistance games before?

R1 has 40 players. and R2 has 60 player modes.
Resistance 3 should hav at least 40-60 player modes if not more.
stop trolling dude.

ReservoirDog3162510d ago

I just can't wait for R3. Nearly anything Insomniac is worth a day 1 buy.

Sackthing2510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

Gold my ass, the beta's still on going. Patch on release day, huh? In other words they are releasing unfinished product. And those bonus demos are on PSN! Isomniac Games you suck!

Edit: Silly gameAr, which part am I trolling? These are facts.

Unfinished product = fact
Demos already on PSN = fact

How am I trolling? Please do back up your statement.

SuperStrokey11232510d ago

Technically i suppose you could say that but this allows them to pour MILLIONS of hours of and tonnes of data in balancing and issue reduction. A day 1 patch isnt a huge issue at all, as it will make the game better for everyone assuming its not like a 2 gig update, if its 50 megs or something then who cares. Thats a 30 second download. Hardly a big issue. Better than taking forever to patch something like COD gets.

blizzard_cool2510d ago

DON'T YOU DARE TO TALK BAD ABOUT INSOMNIAC! But I do agree on that first day patch thing, that's a bit strange.

Silly gameAr2510d ago

Why do you trolls always try to bum rush articles? Don't you have something better to do?

TheMrMadzen2510d ago

The online beta is still going. The patch is for the glitches etc. that will occur IN the beta god dammit! Of course they will have a patch day 1 for tweaks and fixes, which had been fixed in the beta

ksense2510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

way to be a negative nancy. Honestly what game comes out nowadays that require no patch after release.... get over it. so what if the bonus demos are on psn. not everybody goes around downloading and playing demos. if it is easily accessible on disk and doesn't take space on ur hard drive then some people like that and some people don't even know about these games as shocking as it may sound they may give it a shot and like it.

edit: lmao so let me get this straight you would rather wait for a patch for a week or two instead of downloading a patch on day one and having a smoother experience. remember black ops or crysis 2 and all the drama that took place for the first 2 or 3 weeks where the game was unplayable for a lot of people? would you really like that? Atleast they are doing a beta and trying to fix as many issues as possible and patching it on day one so you don't bitch and moan for the first two weeks when the game comes out.

Sackthing2510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

I guess in your dictionary, facts equal "way to be a negative nancy".

Patching after release is fine but shipping the beta version and patch in on day one is another thing.

Unicron2510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

You realize then, that every game ever released this gen that was patched, was an "unfinished product" at release by your logic?

Game looks fantastic but that damn psn pass is something i cannot support. I would suggest that you all do the same and wait for a significant price drop. We can only vote with our wallets on these issues folks.

Have fun not getting any PS3 exclusive on launch day, then.

Or for that matter - any relevant game from any publisher on launch day.

blackburn102510d ago (Edited 2510d ago )

No thanks. I prefer to support Insomniac. I am buying the game new and don't really care. I am not going to boycott Insomniac because no one really boycotts EA or Activision for using the pass. Why should I pick on them especially since I like their games better then any of theirs? @ Sackthing Who cares?

SuperStrokey11232510d ago

you shouldnt support any of them is what im saying. I know that it is a trival matter but they will take and take and take up until we push back. Im deciding that for me the online pass was where it was enough for me.

Just to be clear, i have not bought ANY game with an online pass (other than Dead Space 2 which i didnt know about till i bought it).

vickers5002510d ago

I do agree with you, however I like Resistance way too much to boycott it and wait. I may buy their other upcoming games pre-owned/at a discount though if they decide to continue with this growing trend of online passes.

For me it's not about buying pre-owned, I don't have a 'huge' problem buying the game I love new. For me, the issue is not being able to let my friends or relatives borrow the game and try the online for themselves, because I do recommend and try to get other people to buy games like Resistance by letting them borrow it and play it for themselves. Insomniac has effectively lost almost every single one of those customers that might have bought it after borrowing it from a friend, all because they supported Sonys idea for the online pass.

Online passes will only lead to lost sales, and the devs who use them will have no one to blame for those lost sales but themselves.

Sevir042510d ago

YOu know you guys complaining about the pass miss the point. if you buy the game NEW the PASS comes with the package. If you were already planing on getting it new, the pass wouldn't affect you because it comes with it, if you buy it used then there's your issue< they have to make money regardless, and its away to combat the Gamestop game trading. Dont be surprised if Uncharted gets this and other games in the Sony stable. if you were buying games new this entire time then this is something that doesn't really need to be blown out of proportion . its a none issue. Buy it new own the code that comes in the game enter it so you can access online for the life of the game, or buy it used at 45 and be blocked from playing the online portion because you wanted to save a buy it cheap, but you'll prolly end up ponying 5-8 bucks for a pass to access the game's online for the life of the game.

TheCampfireSong2510d ago

If anyone wants a code in the beta i have 2 left.

ElusiveAura2510d ago

Hey man. Can I please have a code. :)

Omar912510d ago

itll be great if I had one :)

DtotheRoc2509d ago

useless since the damn thing doesn't work lol. black ops had better matchmaking from day 1 lol i had expected something far more substantial since the game is a freaking month away BUT when you do get to play for 2 minutes at a time it's fun lol.
