Today online retailer http://www.estarland.com/Playstation3.cat..product.35923.html has revealed what is purported to be the Resistance 3 PS3 setting, sample boxart (below) and a release date of March 24, 2011.
While there is no official confirmation yet from Sony nor Insomniac Games beyond the previously reported developer profile
and gameplay survey
, the setting of Resistance 3 for PlayStation 3 appears to be in New York based on the boxart logo which matches the Resistance 3 billboard
and product description, as follows:
"Continue the fight against the Chimera invasion in Resistance 3, as the battle moves to New York City and humanity makes its final stand."
To quote: "The billboard for Resistance 3 gives a vague clue on the plot of the game. For Resistance 3, the A in the billboard clearly illustrates the Statue of Liberty, indicating New York City will be the game's primary setting.
As seen by the description by the retailer - stating the game's location is set in New York - and Insomniac's pattern of game locations told via Resistance's box art, you can't help but believe this retailer is correct."
