An Apocalypse Replaces Resistance 3 In 3DTV Bundle
Of course, the first question everyone is going to have is, "why?"
And unfortunately, we don't have the answer. Initially, it was revealed that Sony would launch a sweet 3DTV bundle, which would include a 24" 3D HDTV, a set of 3D glasses, and a copy of Insomniac's upcoming shooter, Resistance 3. But then, that bundle sorta changed out of the blue; Amazon now lists it with MotorStorm: Apocalypse rather than the third Resistance installment. What's going on?
We don't know why Sony changed the attractive bundle, but a reader tells us R3 developer Insomniac Games has confirmed the change at their Twitter page:
"For those asking about the 3DTV bundle:http://t.co/y0o9u4F — Motorstorm: Apocolypse replaced Resistance 3. Sorry for any inconvenience."
They went on to say that no 3DTV bundle will feature Resistance 3 and that "Sony makes the decision on that front." So of course, all this begs the question above: "why the switch?" Wouldn't it make more sense for a newer - and bigger - title to be included in such a bundle? It's set for release this fall and Apocalypse has been out for a while, so...
