While everyone is currently going nuts about Resistance 2, PSP fans are following the development process of the handheld version of the great franchise, Resistance: Retribution. As you can see in this walkthrough footage of the game, it's not a first-person shooter, and that's an interesting change of pace. It's probably a good idea, too, especially considering that FPSs haven't fared very well on the PSP in the past. We expect Retribution to arrive some time early next year, and if it lives up to admittedly lofty expectations, it should be yet another excellent addition to the PSP's library. The sleek handheld has plenty of puzzle, RPG, and strategy titles on tap, but Resistance: Retribution is flat-out action. Yay for diversity!
