149w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a video today featuring Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One PS3 updates.
To quote: We've spent today in London demoing our two upcoming PS3 exclusives, Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, to members of the press. This marks the first time anyone outside Insomniac has played both games. In addition, we're showing new levels and content.
We realize it's not entirely fair that only the press gets to see what's new, so we wanted to make sure we brought it here to the PlayStation.Blog as well.
The Resistance 3 demo takes place in Haven, Oklahoma. Our new hero, former Sentinel Joseph Capelli, has taken up arms with his fellow Haven citizens to defend the town from Chimeran forces.
The fighters are trying to buy enough time for an evacuation of Haven, as a Chimeran terraformer is closing on the city and threatens to wipe it off the map. As the battle wages on and the terraformer nears, you see the wind begin to pick up... and then the Chimeran Brawler arrives to turn the tide of the battle.

156w ago - Today Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a Resistance 3 PS3 Director's Cut VGA trailer with fans.
To quote: While Insomniac is off for the holiday break, we did want to stop by with the Director's Cut of our VGA trailer.
The trailer originally called for three scenes, each showing a different aspect of the game, and the initial sequence was meant to tie it to the GamesCom trailer. Alas, live television demanded a two-minute run-time, and we wanted to give you as much gameplay as possible, so some of the live action hit the cutting room floor.
This restored Director's Cut features a lot of the extra live-action that Prologue shot - including a dark warehouse scene at the beginning. Each of the live action moments does represent a section of the game, despite the only gameplay footage occurring during the boat.
Check out the Director's cut below:
We hope you also got a chance to see the new screenshots we released with the VGAs. We feel like they are some of the best screens we've ever taken.
We're off for the holidays as a company, but we did drum up a few blog posts, and...
157w ago - Today Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has made available some Resistance 3 PS3 gameplay video footage from the VGAs, and for those curious the title will arrive on 9/6/11!
You'll see some more live-action (ala our Cologne reveal trailer), representing two moments from the game: a treacherous boat journey, and a brutal arena battle. You'll also see gameplay footage during the boat sequence, as Joseph Capelli and Dr. Malikov make their way through a flooded city filled with Grims while trying to avoid Chimeran death squads.
If you missed the post from Resistance 3 Creative Director Marcus Smith earlier this week, you should check it out. It brings you up to date on all the info we've released (including the first details about the storyline and our two-player online / split-screen campaign co-op). Click here to find out more.
157w ago - Insomniac Games Creative Director Marcus Smith has shared details today on the story so far in Resistance 3 for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Hopefully you had a chance to check out the teaser for our new trailer which will premier exclusively this Saturday during the Spike Video Game Awards (check your local listings for time and network if you're outside the US).
And, we look forward to sharing more with you about the trailer after the VGAs this weekend. But even prior to the VGAs, a lot of new info has hit since GamesCom via a couple magazine covers that you may have seen - but if you missed it, we're here to catch you up.
First of all, the main protagonist in Resistance 3 is Joseph Capelli, the Sentinel who (HUGE RESISTANCE 2 SPOILERS HERE... if you haven't played it yet, go buy a Greatest Hits copy now!) was forced to kill Nathan Hale at the end of R2.
Capelli was dishonorably discharged, and four years later is living in hiding with his wife, Susan, and son, Jack, along with other survivors in the town of Haven, Oklahoma. He's given up fighting, and is now just trying to hide and survive the Chimeran death squads that roam the planet....
158w ago - Insomniac Games Creative Director Marcus Smith has shared a preview video and confirmed today that a Resistance 3 PS3 gameplay trailer is set to debut at the VGAs.
To quote: I wanted to stop by and give you an update about what's been going on over the last couple of months.
You may remember the live-action trailer that we revealed during GamesCom to formally announce Resistance 3. We're very excited to reveal that we will be following that up with a new trailer, premiering exclusively during the Spike Video Game Awards (Saturday, December 11th in the States, check your local listings for time and network if you're outside the US).
The trailer continues the live action experience, showing live-action snippets of three moments in the game, while also bringing you your first glimpse of actual gameplay from Resistance 3. Check out a teaser for the trailer below:
We hope this continues to help set the tone that Resistance 3 represents, so stay tuned for the show next week...
