Despite the online multiplayer explosion, nothing beats playing with a friend sitting right next to you.
Based on information provided by Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson, Resistance 3 will support split-screen online multiplayer, and best of all, the second player will be able to log into his own account. This feature doesn't always exist for PlayStation 3 owners, but bear in mind that Insomniac will not enable the feature in the upcoming beta. As a reminder, the developers have opted to cut down on the number of players featured in each online match (it was up to 60 in Resistance 2 ); R3 will only allow for 16-player matches. But Insomniac has their reasons for that, and to be able to play alongside someone is always a plus. We're looking forward to the beta and the game, as we remain firmly convinced that R2 went overlooked and unheralded by too many gamers. Don't make the mistake of missing out on the newest iteration…you'll regret a pass.
At least, that's what we're hoping. For the time being, we'll just continue to rake in any R3-related info we can find.
