134w ago - Today Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has officially revealed the Resistance 3 PS3 box art and logos to fans.
To quote: Today we're proud to reveal the Resistance 3 box art that you can hold in your hands when the game hits store shelves on September 6th. You should recognize right away that this graphic version of the Chimeran Skull with the New York skyline depicted as its teeth, as well as the stylized version of the Resistance franchise logo, isn't your typical "rendered hero" box art.
To create this new look, we partnered with Olly Moss, a talented British artist, to create a bold vision of the Resistance 3 box art for both the North American and European territories.
The Resistance team worked closely with Olly to share our vision for the Chimera-occupied 1957, and Joesph Capelli's journey across the destroyed USA to his destination, New York City. You'll see this in the alternate version of the art below, which shows Capelli walking towards the NYC skyline.
We wanted Olly's work to reflect that in Resistance 3, YOU are the Resistance. Resistance 3 isn't a military shooter, as the United States Army and SRPA have been destroyed. Instead, Resistance 3 is about the remnants...

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....
173w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with Ted Price of Insomniac Games from GamesCom 2010, as follows:
I've been a supporter of Insomniac Games ever since I played Spyro the Dragon on the original PlayStation that still sits proudly beneath my TV. Therefore, it was a genuine Pleasure to meet the company's President, Ted Price, at gamescom in Cologne.
First of all, I was keen to hear how it felt to finally spill the beans on the two PlayStation 3 games, Ratchet & Clank All 4 One and Resistance 3, that they have been secretly working on.
"It's a relief!" Ted replied. "Our fans are very vocal on the forums about what we're doing and now we can finally confirm that we are making these games and that they are going to be awesome."
It has been a huge year for Insomniac Games an I was also set on finding out how important it felt for them to reassure PlayStation fans of their commitment to their big first parties IPs.
"We've had such a great relationship with Sony over the years that we felt it very important to remind people that we're still great partners and that we still have great franchises that we're working on," he said. "What we're going to see what from...
