Infect your PSP with Resistance 2 and Retribution connectivity

In addition to the newly announced PSP Plus, Sony unveiled yet another way for your PSP and PS3 to interact with each other. All you have to do is connect a PSP running Resistance: Retribution with a PS3 running Resistance 2. Under R2's option screen, select "Infect your PSP!" and your PSP will enter "Infection mode."

This "Infection mode" will cause your character in Retribution, former British Marine James Grayson, to become infected with an alternate mutated form of the Chimera virus Nathan Hale is infected with. You gain a new uniform, R2 weaponry, additional abilities, access to new Chimera areas, and more. Even the story will be slightly altered -- characters in the story will be aware of your Chimerian infection which will alter their behavior accordingly. For more details, Andrew has written a hands-on over at Joystiq that you can access right here.

TGS 08: PSP Plus adds DualShock 3 controller functionality

The upcoming PSP game will utilize a newly developed technology called "PSP Plus." The feature will allow players of Resistance Retribution to connect their systems to the PS3 to enable use of PS3 wireless controllers. Using the DualShock will enable dual-analog control in the game. In addition, rumble will be supported. This potential use of connectivity was hinted at in a patent filed over a year ago.

Other games may be able to potentially utilize PSP Plus -- however, it is currently a Retribution-only tech. Stay tuned as we reveal the exciting additions connecting PS3's Resistance 2 and PSP's Resistance Retribution will bring.

Resistance Retribution dev goes through PAX demo

There isn't anything "new" to be found in this video walkthrough of the upcoming PSP-exclusive Resistance Retribution, but it is nice to see the game in action once again. Bend Studio's Chris Reese offers commentary as he goes through this beautiful demo, the one shown at both E3 and PAX earlier this year.

Sony to bring Resistance and free goodies to PAX

Are you going to Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) this year? Lucky you! You'll get to meet our very own Jem Alexander and you'll be able to get your dirty hands on all sorts of exclusive gaming -- never playable to the public before! PS3 fans can get in on some Resistance 2 love, while PSP owners will rush to check out Resistance Retribution. A plethora of PSN titles, such as WipEout HD, Savage Moon and Crash Commando will all be available for play. Even better -- you'll get to see live demonstrations of LittleBigPlanet and inFamous!

Even if you can't make it to Seattle, don't fret -- Sony has a consolation prize for you. Visit PlayStation.com when the show begins on August 29th, and you can win a PS3 prize pack. Find out more here.

'Best of Leipzig' looks a lot like 'Best of E3'

Repeating its E3 performance, LittleBigPlanet took top honors at this year's Games Convention show as the "Best PS3 Game." At this point, we shouldn't have to explain exactly why it's so popular -- we're pretty sure you can see for yourself.

Another repeat winner took the crown for "Best PSP Game" -- Resistance Retribution. The upcoming Sony Bend shooter bridges the gap between the first and second games and does so in jaw-dropping style. Too bad the wait until 2009 is going to be excruciatingly long for games-starved owners like us.

PSP software support way down, recovery is likely

We knew software support for the PSP was relatively dire but this chart says it all. According to Siliconera, who've compiled a comprehensive analysis of publisher support, 2006 was the peak while 2007 saw a huge decline. The top six contributing publishers to the PSP's software library have all taken a considerable dip in scheduled titles, but Siliconera also points out that 2008 is actually starting to curve upward.

Does that mean we're on the cusps of a healthy and steady recovery? Possibly, as games like Dissidia: Final Fantasy and LocoRoco 2 are on the way this year, and future titles like Resistance: Retribution and The 3rd Birthday are also on the way. The report is a very good read; we suggest you check out the whole thing at Siliconera for an in-depth look.

Confirmed: Resistance Retribution is awesome

PSP may not have had an overwhelming amount of surprises at E3 this year, but one announcement can make up for an otherwise tame conference. Resistance Retribution is on its way to becoming one of the best games on PSP, bar none.

Simply listing all of Resistance's features doesn't convey the simple fact that Resistance Retribution is a lot of fun. Being able to switch to an auto-target and manual aiming mode on the fly is what really makes Resistance as playable as it is. It may seem strange at first, but pressing the Left button on the D-Pad to toggle between manual and auto aim comes rather easily. The proximity of the Left button in relation to the L shoulder button makes it an intuitive change. We were able to take cover, pop out and take out a few enemies, and then aim at a few snipers afar without struggling at all. Once again, Bend has crafted a control scheme that takes PSP's limitations into consideration.

Resistance Retribution: the full details (and trailer)

Click for high-resolution image.

Yesterday, Sony surprised PSP fans by announcing a brand new PSP-exclusive expansion of the Resistance franchise. Very little was known about the game from its initial debut: all we knew was that it came to us via Sony Bend, the incredible studio that brought us last year's PSP Game of the Year, Syphon Filter. The engine that they developed for that third-person action title was stellar, but from the early looks of Resistance, the team at Bend has just begun flexing their PSP muscles.

Unlike Resistance on PS3, the upcoming PSP titles will play from a third person perspecitve, just like the Syphon Filter franchise on PSP. The story takes place in between Resistance and Resistance 2. Set in the weeks after Fall of Man, Retribution follows the story of former British Marine James Grayson. He is forced to kill his own brother inside a Chimeran conversion center, and thus inspires his bloodlust to destroy every conversion center he can find. Unfortunately, the Chimera have figured out a new way to convert humans ... and he must join the Mquis, the European resistance, in their fight against the deadly Chimera army.

Resistance franchise on PSP

Sony unveiled a major first party PS3 title heading for the PSP. Resistance for the PSP will be known as Resistance Retribution. It'll be a third person action game using an over-the-shoulder view. The game will be developed by Sony Bend, developers of the Syphon Filter PSP games. The game looks gorgeous. Pictured is Resistance Fall of Man and not the new PSP game.

Resistance on PSP is 'possible' says Insomniac

Ted Price, man behind the curtain at Insomniac Games, recently talked with MTV Multiplayer at the DICE summit in regards to ... well, a lot of things. We're going to focus on one of those things: bringing Resistance to the PSP. It's not like they're trying to port the PS3 title over to the PSP, though -- Price uses Killzone as an example, noting how Liberation wasn't a first-person shooter like its parent title, but was a fantastic game all its own.

While the possibility is there, we have no idea if Insomniac will follow through with this idea and how different a PSP Resistance would be relative to the original FPS. What sort of crazy genre do you think could work? Maybe the Chimera want to battle mankind in a series of physical activities to prove who are the superior athletes. Some sort of olympics with a snappy title. Who knows. It worked pretty well for Sega and Nintendo!

Andrew's raving and random rants: in podcast form

For those of you willing to kill an hour of your life listening to my whiny, irritating voice can head over to Tired Thumbs. I was invited to speak rant on a variety of gaming topics, and you'll hear my (incorrect) answers to questions like:
  • Which system has better wi-fi connections? The Wii or the PS3?
  • Is World of Warcraft the work of Satan?
  • Is Gears of War the best thing since peanut butter?
  • Why do I hate Resistance?
  • Why do you never, ever, keep a disc inside a PS3?
I may have also mentioned the PSP somewhere along the way. If you have nothing better to do with yourself on this lazy Sunday, you may want to check it out. by clicking the link below. Once you're done, feel free to flame me here.
