    Seems a bit early for Resistance 3. I don’t think the same will happen on PS4, now that online multiplayer is paid.

      Sony closed 4 mmo’s recently and there is this

      I wouldnt hold your breath

      • Abysswalker90

        How can one hold another person’s breath?

        • Khoko

          You breathe it into a bag. I kick you in the nads for being a wise ass. Breath held. Nads kicked.

          Question answered. Upboat me,

          • Abysswalker90

            Quite an interesting approach.

          • Ferrick

            what about the legal approach ?

          • neocatzon

            Patent on breathing, please.

    If not enough people use them seems pointless leaving them going.

    We had some great times Resistance…Some great times. Especially with you Resistance 2, with your 60 player matches and 8 player co-op. You were an awesome game then in 2008, and you’re still an awesome game now. TwT Resistance 3, you were kickass and despite lacking some great multiplayer aspects from 2, you were still a great experience to enjoy, with a nice ending to wrap up the series. And of course Resistance..Damn you were tough..But you were also fantastic in not completely holding my hand throughout parts of the game.

    My only regret is that I wish a Resistance 4 had been planned for the PS4. Oh well. Better enjoy online while I still can

    Well Resistance…”I’m sorry sir, it was an honor” T.T

    Don’t try and resist the resistance shut down.

  • KyoyaHibari

    Man, I wanted to get those games at some point but kept holding it off, stupid me :/

  • eilegz

    and thats why online games should include a system link or LAN option at least when they kill the game it have some sort of multiplayer aspects

  • Godmars

    Just makes me wonder about Home. Whether or not it will see a PS4 version since I doubt if they do anything, they’ll just move everything over.

  • subsamuel01

    Insomniac said their done with Resistance, plus Resistance 3 had pretty poor sales. I would love a reboot on the PS4.

  • ZekeFreek

    Sony fucks up R3’s ad campaign, bitches about poor sales, gives it a mediocre Vita spin-off game and then decides to ditch the franchise for good and shut everything down. Insomniac just sits and watches while they try be EA’s next whipping boy.

    Such a bleak hopeless end is actually kind of weirdly fitting for the Resistance series.

    • Rayshawn Davis

      Pretty much, Resistance 3 had piss poor marketing, no major television marketing kicked in until the very first week of September.
      Although I do find the Resistance 3 Radio Trailer/Spot fitting in how it mirrors the end of all of this.
