Resistance: Fall Of Man Demo Available At Launch

To go along with the MotorStorm demo that will be available to the Sony PS3 at launch, it now looks like like Resistance will have its own demo as well. According to Kotaku and their hands-on preview of the game at Sony's recent press event, there will be a three-level demo of the game available from day one via the Playstation online network. For more of Kataku's hands-on preview of the demo they played, hit the link below.

Free demos are always good. Those guys tend to be skeptical and they were impressed. Bodes well for Resistance.

kmis876337d ago

Cool, I'm wondering whether I should buy the game when I pick up the system or wait until I demo it and then decide whether to buy it. Having demos downloadable from day one is a good sign too.

It was funny how the author of the article brought up odd points by other writers on the site and said he had no clue what they were talking about.

kmis876337d ago

I'm probably only going to get 3-4 games at launch, depending on the reviews and stuff. Right now I'm leaning towards Resistance, Madden, CoD3, and Rainbow 6. From what I've seen of CoD3 and R6 it looks like the 360 versions might end up being much better looking a lot better, and if the online is seriously lacking in either that's a deal breaker for me. So if the versions of either of those feel rushed, I'd probably wait to pick them up as 360 plat hits, or just wait for the next version of each. Fight Night looks good, but I've only played it in 360 demo units, and I wasn't that impressed. The first person mode looks sweet, so I'll try out a demo if they have one.

Basically that's where I'm sitting at launch. I would probably buy one or two more, but FFXII and Guitar Hero demand my money. God of War II will probably be the last ps2 game I buy, and I'll probably buy DMC4 when it releases, and RE5 if it comes out in spring, and MGS4 and FFXIII if they come out next year. The rest of my 2007 purchases would probably just be greatest hits games when they hit. Overall I'll have a nice handful of good ps3 games, a ton of ps2 games, and a wii to help my wait go by. Plus downloadable games will be available.

Revisiting PS3 classic Motorstorm - The driving celebration that should never have ended

Digital Foundry : Evolution Studios' Motorstorm is one of the first, finest and most fondly remembered of launch titles for PlayStation 3. It's a release designed to answer the question posed by each new console generation: what makes a game 'next-gen'? With its robust physics engine and massive tracks, Motorstorm serves up a bold affirmative answer to this question, delivering an experience that could never have existed on prior console hardware. At the same time, the path to release was fraught with challenges that almost serve as a microcosm of the PlayStation 3 release situation itself. It was a success, however, with a trilogy of PS3 releases, plus PSP, Vita and even PS2 off-shoots.

After Driveclub and Onrush, the dev team will now contribute to and assist with the development of the upcoming NFS.

I would give anything to have a full compilation of the series remastered to play on PS5 with full DS support. Feeling the deformation of the tracks as you race in pacific rift or the snow laden tracks in arctic edge... that would be sweet.

MastaMold648d ago (Edited 648d ago )

Yes MotorStorm World Tour for PS5 damn it Sony make it. The Desert, Pacific Islands, The Arctic and City races.

Army_of_Darkness648d ago

Motorstorm Pacific rift was awesome! I think MotorStorm: Apocalypse was what killed the franchise due to its change of direction...

darthv72648d ago

Pacific rift is the best (IMO) but apocalypse wasnt what killed it. At least it was still somewhat of a MS game. The RC one is really a departure from the norm. None of which were bad as they were all fun in their own ways.

Army_of_Darkness648d ago

Lol! I completely forgot about the RC version.

Knushwood Butt647d ago (Edited 647d ago )

RC was a blast to play on Vita.

Apocalypse had unfortunate timing due to the 3/11 earthquake in Japan. I never got around to playing that one.

Evolution had some harsh experiences. I had Driveclub from launch and the server issues weren't that bad and certainly didn't prevent you from enjoying the game.

ABizzel1647d ago

Agree Apocalypse didn't kill it, it's just racing games in general just became less popular nearing the end of the PS360 generation as it was flooded with medicore racers and the extremely niche but enjoyable ones like Motorstorm, Blur, Spilt Second, and Forza Horizon (still going strong, but actual sales have been decent fro a racer, and often expanded by console bundles and now GamePass)

But since the PS4/XBO generation had a lack of arcade racers, it's a prime time for games like this to come back.

I've said for the longest, the additional income of PS+ Premium should be used for, Remastering, Remaking, or recreating sequels / spinoffs of classic PS franchises to launch into the service. Many PS3 games fit this mold of looking good enough that a quick remaster to 4K@60 with better texture maps would give them near PS4 quality.

Remasters: A game like Motorstorm look good enough where it can simply be remastered in 4K @ 60fps, and have better textures for mud, mountains/rock structures, and vehicles and it would hold up WELL.

Remakes: Games like Legend of Dragoon, Warhawk (could be a simple remaster also), and so many others could get remakes like FF7.

Recreates: Shorter sequels/prequels/spin-offs to other classic PS IPs like how Infamous First Light / Blood Festival (BF was a highly underrated vampire game) and Uncharted Lost Legacy. Give spin-offs to things like Heavenly Sword, The Order 1886 (1786 or 1986), Puppeteer, Tokyo Jungle, and more.

ABizzel1647d ago (Edited 647d ago )

This is also why Sone NEEDS to get PS3 emulation up and running. It gets rid of all the PS3 server farms and replaces it with software that can work on EVERY future PS console with updated coding.

At bare minimum emulation could double the resolution and framerates of all PS3 games making many of them 1440p@60fps without any real work, and a few 4k@60fps.

As for full-on remakes again updating to 4K@60fps with completely revamped textures, and an option for 1440p@60fps with global illumination can make these games shine with a new lease on life.

Also I'm still waiting on my DriveClub 1440p@60fps update 😭

ChiefofLoliPolice647d ago

Apocalypse was actually pretty good i don't think that's what killed the series. PR was the best though.

I was late to PS3 and Pacific Rift was the first game I picked up on it... huge miss to not have one on PS4, hope it gets some love on PS5 (as well as Ridge Racer and Wipeout).

akurtz648d ago

Only driving game i enjoyed.

darkrider648d ago

Really cool franchise. It's shame it ended

RosweeSon648d ago

Never really got into it myself I remember getting it with ps3 and being a bit underwhelmed I preferred the RC version they did for vita 🙌🏻🤣

EvertonFC648d ago

Going from ps2 to ps3 was not underwhelming when I first played motorstorm, it was like nothing we'd ever seen before ?

RosweeSon648d ago (Edited 648d ago )

Each to their own didn’t like it myself. 🤷🏻‍♂️✌🏻 ;I didn’t say going from ps2/3 was underwhelming just the launch game motorstorm, bit different but hey ho.

PS3 was a slow burner for me it’s my least favourite Sony console, maybe as I had my 360 as my main at that point but yeah wasn’t impressed with first couple of years to be honest but that’s just me. Once uncharted MGS4 GT5 Last of us GTA4/5 dropped sure but launch games weren’t all that imo. Resistance was alright wasn’t as big a change as ps4 or even now ps5 for me. PS3 took out rumble and basically went HD it’s wasn’t exactly a revolutionary start. 🤷🏻‍♂️✌🏻 ;
