122w ago - Today Insomniac Games has released the Resistance 3 PS3 Beta Patch version 2.01, which aims to rectify matchmaking issues with more details outlined below.
To quote from their recent update: Matchmaking
In good news, we have sent a patch (Update 2.01) that addresses the matchmaking issues into final testing at Sony, and are hoping to have it up by tomorrow night UK time, so that you EU folks joining the beta should be able to matchmake.
This additional patch will be required, and will allow us to re-enable matchmaking, which should again (hopefully) happen sometime in the late morning Pacific Time tomorrow. This should address the issues and allow you to use matchmaking to find games again, while also addressing a few crashes.
Thanks for your patience while we developed and fixed the issue - and please continue to report any issues you find with matchmaking to us so we can continue to tweak and optimize. We will continue to update you on the status of the 2.01 patch as it gets through final testing, staging, and release in the next day or so.
Stats coming down again
Sometime this afternoon, we will be bringing down stat progression again until further notice. We are moving the stat database...

145w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has revealed Resistance 3 Multiplayer details today, and confirmed the PS3 Beta will be coming later this year.
To quote: As this post goes live, we are revealing our all-new multiplayer for Resistance 3.
We've said all along we wanted Resistance 3's MP mode to bring the best of both Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2's MP and co-op modes, and you're about to see just how we've managed to do that.
Resistance 3 will feature 16-player Human vs. Chimera deathmatch and objective-based modes set in locations across the globe.
That may seem somewhat jarring after the 40 and 60-player mayhem in RFOM and R2. Rest assured though, our biggest motivation in determining our new player count was the fun times that we and the community had on maps like RFOM's Busyard and Rooftops, as well as the Bayou House and San Francisco maps in Resistance 2.
Resistance 3 will offer a very deep and customizable progression system. Players can create their own progression paths through multiplayer, spending their hard-earned points to customize loadouts that fit their unique playstyle.
