Resistance 2 "Just About Finished"
It's #1 on our most anticipated PS3 holiday list, and in case you were concerned it might not hit its November release date, stop worrying. Insomniac doesn't miss deadlines (well, it's rare, at any rate), and now we have learned that Resistance 2 is inching closer to the finish line.
According to a recent GameSpot Q&A with Insomniac president and CEO Ted Price, the hotly anticipated FPS is nearly complete, and we couldn't be happier. In Price's own words, he said "the game is just about finished," and that the team will be using the final month to fine-tune the last little details. He added that this aspect of the development process is "always the most difficult" but they're not about to "cut any corners." This is great news, because we can't count how many games we've played where, upon finishing, we said- "gee, another few weeks to iron out the small flaws, and this one would've been amongst the elite." In this industry, the truly amazing titles separate themselves from the rest of the pack by going that extra mile; by going to the lengths the merely "good" titles ignore. Of course, budget and time factor into such things, so we don't expect all studios to produce a Resistance 2, but this is the way things are.
Resistance 2 will likely clash with Gears of War 2, but that shouldn't be considered a problem. Two fantastic games; play 'em both. By now, you probably should have both the PS3 and Xbox 360, although we do have to admit it's currently more beneficial to own the PS3. We think that's fair, don't you?
