Burbank, California-based Insomniac, the ironclad talent behind Ratchet and Clank, is pretty fond of numbers at present. Big numbers. To be specific, numbers that overshadow those boasted by the original Resistance: Fall of Man, whose massive alternative-history shoot-outs helped PlayStation 3 off to a flying start back in 2006.
Resistance 2, it's immediately clear, is built to another scale entirely. Thought 40-player deathmatch was the shizzle? Try 60-player on for size. Cut your teeth on split-screen co-op? Get stuck into that stand-alone eight player online campaign. Ryan Schneider, Insomniac's Community Manager, has plenty of stats to throw around when Kiziko stops by for a preview.
