The alternate history sci-fi first person shooter is finally available for handheld gamers… which due to my limited gaming environment (see first time dad) is very good news.
Developing a new storyline, this latest game builds off of the previous two Resistance: The Fall of Man games. Set in an alternate 1950′s Britain under siege by a strange alien menace called the Chimera, gamers will direct James Grayson who joins the resistance in an attempt to drive the aliens from the sceptered isle and throughout Europe. The PSP game will feature an all new storyline, 8 player multi-player gameplay and a couple of new features connecting to the PS3 including being able to use the dual shock controller and a separate version of the game called ‘infected.’ Both features are newly developed by Sony and show massive innovation in the use of the PSP as it relates to the PS3 console. Several gamers have been understandably worried about the future of the PSP and this could be a good indicator that Sony is forging ahead with some new ideas.
