Resistance 2 PS3 Preview

50°
363w ago - As a launch title, Resistance: Fall of Man did much to dissuade potential PS3 owners from holding off on taking the initial plunge with a huge financial investment for the system. The title showcased a substantial portion of the PS3's technical might as well as the skill of developers Insomniac Games and landed its way as the top-selling game within days of the system's release.

Mixing a touch of sci-fi horror into an intense, stunning first-person shooter on the next-gen console was a winning mixture for Insomniac, whose track record is well proven with the hilarious and engaging Ratchet and Clank series. With two great PS3 titles under their belt, they're out to up the ante with what looks to be one hell of a sequel in Resistance 2.

While FOM centered on the invasion of Britain by the alien Chimera forces, Resistance 2 takes the battle to American shores. The game's story will pick up precisely where players left off at the conclusion of the first installment; protagonist Nathan Hale is captured by unknown troops and whisked away to Iceland.

Their chopper is shot down, and Hale eventually makes it back to the U.S. where he joins a group of fighters who are resistant to the Chimera virus. From there, the conflict will unfold across the 1950's era American landscape - in an alternate reality...
 

PS3 backwards compatibility to return?

100°
363w ago - PlayStation 3 owners who don't have PS2 backwards compatibility may yet be able to enjoy the feature after a Sony executive hinted at its return.

At launch, all PlayStation 3 consoles boasted PS2 backwards compatibility - with the US and Japanese machines offering a hardware solution while the UK console featured software emulation.

However, Sony removed the feature in later editions of the console, including the 40Gb model currently on sale in the UK.

PlayStation network director Eric Lempell told EGM that the function could return for those PS3 consoles currently lacking it. "There are possibilities through technology and software emulation to make that possible," he said, but added that Sony has no "specific plans at this point".
 

Race Driver: GRID UK Preview

363w ago - With the current generation of consoles now really hitting their stride, last year saw a steady influx of triple-A racing titles for petrol-heads to gorge themselves on - from Forza Motorsport's refined take on an established formula, through to the zenith of the Project Gotham series with its fourth installment, and on to the triumphant return of SEGA Rally, there was no shortage of choice for those yearning for automotive thrills.

This year, with the imminent release of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and the full fat release in the later months, the din of engines has receded to a muted hum. Step forward Codemasters' Race Driver: GRID, which is looking to break the silence and once more get gamers singing the rasped tune of caterwauling engines.

Codemasters has steadily earned itself a respectable reputation in the racing genre - it established itself at the front of the automotive pack with the Colin McRae and TOCA series on the last generation of consoles, and with this generation it looks to be taking stock and pushing its franchises to new directions.

Last year's DiRT managed to be one of the most visually impressive titles on the new generation of hardware and pushed the series towards more instantaneous thrills. That trend looks set to continue with Race Driver: GRID, the first current...

Sony currently offers original PlayStation titles as downloads for PS3 and PSP via the PlayStation Store.
