Low Resistance 3 Sales Paint An Uncertain Future

When Resistance 3 launched, we warned everyone that the game didn't appear to be selling very well.

And after learning that Insomniac's new shooter only shifted around 275,000 copies, we're wondering if this marks the end of the stellar series. We've always thought the franchise never received the respect it deserved, although some critics have certainly gotten behind it this generation. The problem is that given the awesome arsenal, excellent pacing, and story-driven campaign, we're looking at a fantastic product that gamers aren't really buying. And hence, the designers haven't been justly rewarded.

When that happens, things usually have to change. Therefore, we're thinking Insomniac may continue on with Ratchet & Clank but may have to explore new IP options, both for the remainder of the PlayStation 3 lifespan and the upcoming new generation. Or they might focus on making an installment for the PlayStation Vita; Sony is pushing their new portable very hard, and the capabilities of that handheld device would be appealing to the Resistance makers. But right now, the future is very much uncertain and we find that depressing. Wouldn't it be great to see Resistance 4 as a debut PlayStation 4 title?

For some reason Resistance just didn't click with me. It felt more like a chore to play without too much of a good story, for me. Even though I am not a big fan, I am still sad to see it not sell well! =[

Resistance did not have a good story? Granted I never played the games, I was under the impression that Resistance actually has one of the best written stories among FPS games. I'm personally intrigued by its alternate history setting.

It's just what I took away from it. I really enjoyed the setting and atmosphere, but it did not feel fun to me. I was planning on buying R3 anyways just so I could support the developers, but I found out I couldn't because of all the other games coming out unfortunately. I wish I was made of money.

I'm not trying to complain, just stating my opinion like everyone else. I know I'm most likely in the minority when I say I disliked the Resistance series. =]

I haven't played Resistance accept for the demos, but it is very disappointing to hear this news. This product was supposed to have won the hearts and minds of the exclusive elites of PS3 gamers.

Unsurprisingly, there may be a "mix" of reasons that could have caused this. A few that come to mind are, the economic situation for one, and the fact that in a months time, Battlefield 3 releases.

Economically we are at a point where gamers are being careful what they buy, making sly choices and trying to make their dollar go far. Even PlayStation 3 owners are astute now, looking at maybe picking up 1 or 2 really good AAA titles on day one, and then waiting for other titles ti drop in price 6 months later to fill out their back catalogue collections.

Personally I would love to go out and buy everything, but it ain't going to happen. Price points are too high and gamers are making astitute choices now in the face of the heavy weight shooters coming out that are, MW3 and Battlefield 3. Sadly Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 have both suffered, and technically they are the class of the show.

I think it is going to get tougher and tougher for developers and only the very "best" will survive, with timing and I.P development choice being a very important factor today.

I don't want to really say this, but I am inclined to feel that the 360 has also contributed to gaming becoming a "cheap" hollywood experience, something I think Sony never wanted to pursue. It's sad really. Sony wanted to keep high standards, and are trying to do so in the face of the complete destruction of originality which made gaming great in the past...

Sony is still pushing, still trying, but without love from its loyal supporters, it will find it increasingly difficult to mature the gaming market in a direction that would be best for all... fun, but intellectual gaming, with strong original I.P.s that do not conform to the COD scourge....

Q!

If you don't detest fps's, and you had to get one, R3 is an excellent "chimera" of all of 'em. It has the intensity of KZ, the versatility of Crysis 2, mp elements of COD, and an sp comparable with HL. Hey, I loved the game as a Ratchet fan. I'm not feeling the mp as much as I do in KZ3, but the sp was definitely more exciting...though both left something to be desired in the finales, easily forgivable in light of everything else.

But, to each his/her own.

That's awful, so much for high scores and quality selling games. I really dig Resistance but the fact is the setting isn't what people are after, it's all about current military warfare right now. People have no imagination any more so they can't connect with theoretical alternate sci fi history.

I think Insomniac needs to move on.

My feelings exactly Word. The shooter genre is cornered and it's just too hard to break away from the norm and find success.
I'm a little worried for Insomniac as a whole, I doubt their next multiplat will sell that well either... I'm betting on a Sony "intervention" by the middle of next year the latest... Will be nice to finally have them as a 1st Party Studio.

I'm really just saying Resistance's alternate sci fi history isn't all that appealing to the modern warfare crowd. Things like Crysis and Halo that go all out with technology are big for different reasons, mainly the futuristic tech. Resistance is World War II on sci fi crack. I like it a lot, but I don't think it's connecting with the mass audience.

As far as insomniac goes, I think their multiplat project is going to bomb. Nobody is in the market for that kind of project right now.

I did my part. I got it day one as an Insomniac fan, and was not disappointed. Coincidentally, I'm not from the COD/Battlefield crowd, but from the minority. Naturally, sales are going to reflect that, no matter how beefed up marketing gets.

aren't you guys forgetting that when it came out, the multiplayer has major frame rate issues and lag. Don't you think that could've affected sales? I'm just pointing that out. Not only that, Resistance could've been affected by the people who were waiting for better releases for this season.

Maybe no one wants it because there is a better lineup of single player games and multiplayer games coming out through the remainder of the year.

I just purchased Dead Island and Deus Ex: Human Revolution and will be buying Rage, NBA2K12, and Uncharted. While I would love to have R3, I have put it on the bottom of my priority list as a result of the other great games coming out in fall 2011.

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 @ 11:34:48 AM

I wouldnt say that, I too believe it is FPS-fatigue.. people love FPS games, thats a given, but R3 is just the same old fruit.

DI is different enough, fresh enough for people to enjoy... and its glitched to hell, yet people love it. The zombie theme helps, also helps that we dont have L4D on the PS3, but its everything else that DI does that R3 doesn't that makes it popular. that tells me that people just want something different.

im a lil disappointed in R3 that it doesn't bring anything new to the table, after taking a year out.. I think most expected something fresher, but instead they reduced online players, and just made everything 'nice' ..the graphics weren't ground breaking, online wasn't ground breaking, story was good.. control was good.. its a great apple.

but its not the greatest apple, and quite frankly we are all waiting for that come late Oct and/or Nov for our BF3/ CoD fix.

I think it's mainly due to the combination of a struggling economy and a crowded market. Or in other words there's just too much stuff coming out and not enough money to go around. So by all accounts it's not the game's fault. The game is just a victim of circumstance.

But all things considered there is probably a decent chance that Sony and Insomniac are going to decide to retire the franchise, at least for a while. I know that some people don't want to hear that but all things considered it actually does make sense. First of all, Insomniac already has plenty of other stuff on it's plate with Ratchet and Clank as well as their new upcoming IP called Overstrike. And on top of that as I understand it the ending of Resistance 3 pretty much wraps up the overarching story of the IP and doesn't leave the door open for a continuation anyway.

So as I said for better or worse retiring the franchise does make a lot of sense at this point.

A shame, but I was never too excited about the series as a whole. The market really is oversaturated in this area and in the end that might be the biggest contributing factor. I will get it but I still need to play through the 1st 2 first. Not every game has to make up the brunt of its sales in the initial week.

Even if you needed a PSN pass, that sale wouldn't affect the sales figures. It's an irrelevant complaint. If you buy the game new, you don't need to pay for a pass. If you refuse to buy it because you don't want to buy a pass... well... I mean.. come on. lol You weren't going to contribute to sales numbers anyways.

It's -REALLY- funny, and a crock of BS if people refuse to buy it new because of an online pass... that you get for free... It's not even a new concept.

How many years now have PC games needed product keys, again?

SAME issue, guys. Grow up. You can't POSSIBLY think -THAT- is what is affecting the sales numbers. Some other people here are perhaps a little more spot on. dillonthebunny a couple posts down pretty much nailed it, as far as I'm concerned.

It might not be the main reason why the game isn't selling well but I'm sure the PSN pass contributed to poor sales in SOME way.

Underdog, you and I just had this conversation about trade-ins: if you look at Amazon's online trade-in store, Resistance 3 is currently fetching a measly $8! Depending on the game, a week or 2 after its release it usually is worth at LEAST $25-40. This reduced value is in all liklihood a result of have a 1-time online PSN pass. I'm sure people will hesitate to buy the game if they know how little value they would get from trading it in.

I'm not finished with my first playthrough and have no intention of trading it in btw. It moved past Killzone 3 for FPS of the year currently.

@BIGRED: It's not irrelevant, I know if you buy new you get the pass but it's the principle the reason why I'm not getting this game. Online pass is greedy.

@trophyhunter: just because you don't like online pass or wont get a game because it has online pass doesnt mean you were going to buy it used.

@underdog: don't you understand yet? it's the principle. it's not that people dont want to get R3 because they dont want to pay for the pass, its because it has psn pass period.

its definetly a reason why it hasnt sold, there are MANY people that aren't yes sirs and dont agree with everything that happens in the gaming industry and actually have principles and thats why they didnt get R3.

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 @ 1:35:37 PM

It's a really bad idea to talk about principle on this issue with me, because I tend to talk about it at great length. I refuse to discuss it on this thread at length beyond this post because we've very recently already discussed this issue. I will however state what I think.

I think that software is licensed material despite the ability to trade and sell and buy the physical disc. I think, as a matter of principle, it is wrong that the industry's used game market doesn't return anything to the industry. The used game market -ROBS- the industry of billions and billions of dollars every year. Dollars that, instead of in part being returned to production values of future titles, are going straight into the fat wallets of CEO's and businessmen.

So, as a matter of principle, I think it's wonderful that dev's are implementing a way to ensure more money is thrown their way. In an ideal world, used game sales are done by many, but a small percentage SHOULD go to the devs. I cannot stand the fact that if I spend money on enjoying a game, the creators don't see a dime, but fat CEO's of Gamestop, et al, get billions of undeserved income.

Used game sales are a bane on the industry. I completely agree that consumers also need choice, but right now, the current model hurts the industry you pretend to support.

So for me, it's also a matter of principle. And I have no sympathy for people who complain about a game, but are not willing to support the developer monetarily. I mean, come on... "I'm not getting it out of principle" is a load of horse manure. The used game model needs to be changed so consumers have choice, and developers are rewarded for their work. You want to be mad about developers charging a fee for accessing a network you otherwise didn't pay to access? Blame Gamestop and other used game sales business practices.

You aren't battling the fight of purity you think you are.

Support the consumer? Absolutely. But not because a mentality of entitlement leads you to harm the industry you pretend to support. You're fighting a good battle for the right reasons, but you don't even know what you should be aiming at.

What's greedy is thinking you deserve something without considering the negative effects on the world around you. In fact, it's incredibly self-centered to consider nothing but how it affects yourself. (The "consumer")

Yet, lo and behold, this is exactly what you are doing, Amonte.

Think about this a little more deeply guys. jimmyhandsome pointed out you can get it used on Amazon for $8... and if you add the $10 online pass, that's only $18. Which is far less than having to pay the usual $30-$55 for a used but brand new game.

The way the online pass is set up, used game sales will never be able to sell it for the amounts it used to, and the devs will get some money, otherwise lost, back! (Unless you're the type to argue the pathetic Car analogy that doesn't apply to software... *checks watch and expects pathetic analogy in 3...2...1...*)

So basically... Gamestop or Amazon will not be able to pad CEO pockets as well but are still in business for continuing to offer additional options to consumers... the overall cost will STILL be a cheaper option for the consumer, AND the developer gets a small cut.

Everybody wins! If you ask me, this model should be -SUPPORTED- until the used game market evolves into something that actually works for everyone. Why do you think Netflix is failing so badly right now? Lots of reasons, of course, but not reasons unlike what is beginning to happen in the game industry.

Companies sell copies of games, when copy XYZ gets purchased the companies get their profit, when copy XYZ get borrowed by a friend or sold to a friend the sale and profit from copy XYZ was already made and used purchaser of copy XYZ is just replacing new purchaser of copy XYZ. If new purchaser of copy XYZ wants to play the game he will have to buy the game new. Used purchaser didn't pay for anything but the original purchaser already did.

I'll get it eventually along with the first two titles. School for the longest has eaten my gaming budget and my time... I spent enough money to buy a couple PS3s on Adobe Premiere just recently. Still The Resistance series is high up on my list of must buys. Lol, maybe it's just bad timing or something.

because even the games we expect to have many players (cough bf3 cough cough) have disappointed (me) with having very few online. im even surprised at the amount of the PC that will have online.

Well I guess Sucker Punch should give up on Infamous as well since Infamous 2 didn't shift that many copies either. These aren't bad numbers at all, but they aren't stellar. Every game can't be purchased and an 8 hr game w/ a lackluster MP option is nothing but a rental for me nowadays. Resistacne 3 should have came out months ago because if so, I "might" have bought it...but as for now...way more better options on the horizon.

I bought it D1 and love it. It's sad to see this happen to such a great title. I do wonder if part is because of the pass but I think time will tell with that when Sony releases other games with it. Maybe they should put it with Uncharted 3 and see if it hurts sales.

I think people that don't buy it because of the pass are missing out on great fun.

There are a lot of games coming out this fall and I'm trying to get all of them I want which calls for a lot of bargain shopping. I'll be picking up Shadow of the Damned this Thursday since K-Mart has it for $30. Plus I have a $15 gaming coupon which makes it even better.

Resistance is a great series, having played through all three games and Retribution. Based on what I've seen, this should be the end of the Resistance series for good.

Sony needs to advertise their games more, it saddens me that they don't get the recognition they deserve.

Insomniac should focus on a new PS3 exclusive IP for the next generation. This would give them time to make something really special.

R3 had low number sells could be due to so many different exclusives coming out people probably were limited and only focused on getting certain games. Plus with the online pass that was introduce that as well could've of had people pass on it.

I just don't get it. These are obviously USA numbers, but is it possible that R3 sell a *lot* better in europe?

There's not a day without me checking out the PS3 best seller list at Play and Amazon UK.
And I tell you, Resistance 3 has continuously been located above Dead Island, without exception, and until recently they've been sitting firmly within the top-5.

Therefore, either *no* title sold well this period, or both games sold well. There can be no other explanation, proving that the charts at those sites are precise!

Do you talk about the series in general or R3 vs KZ3 in particular? What is it about kz you find better than Resistance?

It's funny how out of sync I am with everyone else when it comes to these games. I think Resistance beats Killzone as a single player game in every way possible!

Only thing is mp, that's not too impressive in R3 (it's ok just nothing out of the ordinary) and I never played kz3 mp much.

I think it's not just a better game overall, but a better FPS than KZ3 too. Much better, even!

The maps are more varied, the events more exciting (the "wow-moments" are popping up like pearls on a string in R3!), the story is *way* better both in content and narrative, the atmosphere is better, I can't even begin describe how much more fun the weapons are, the AI is better, I really mean it when I say that I find Resistance 3 to be a better single player game than kz3 in every way that matters.

The *only* checkpoint where KZ3 can be said to be better is pure pixel-by-pixel comparison of the graphics. But the price to achieve this level of graphics - namely the map sizes and linearity - is way too high.
All in my personal opinion of course.

i agree with that. r3 was getting a lot of negative publicity becuase gamers were umipressed by its graphics. the demo on battle los angeles blu ray was totally lackluster and the mp beta was pretty lackluster as well.

i always question the wisdom of companies putting poor quality demos out then blaming it on an old build.

beamboom mentions the turbulence that surrounded the ps3 version of crsis2. i am absolutely convinced that cost crytek a lot of sales on the ps3 version of the game.

i am sure the quality of the r3 demo and beta cost this game some sales as well.

Well i bought R3 at launch and feel the same as jawkee. It isnt up to par with many great shooters. R3 is good not great. Good is the enemy of great. And as most of you people mention that you were holding off on R3 for many other GREAT games later this year. I felt the story lack in a lot of areas especially the characters. I had that "thats it?" feeling at the end once the credits started to roll. And the MP and its issues dont believe me hit the R3 official furums and see many dissatisfied r3 gamers. I dont regret buying R3 but i can understand first hand why people are avoiding buying R3. They know better games are coming out soon and gamers speak with there wallets. Add an 83/100 metacritic score for a game thats touted a "AAA blockbuster" exclusive dont help. Which should be 90s + average like Uncharted 2 which is a fine example. And R3 is not even close to being on par with the quality that is Uncharted 2. Let alone Uncharted 3. And we all know Uncharted 3 WILL sell very well.

Insomniac games have a tendency to sell slowly, don't they? IIRC, Fall of Man has sold something like 4 million to date. But it is sad to see such a low uptake for a game that is nothing short of amazing from start to finish, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed it a damn sight more than either Black Ops or Bad Company. To be fair, that's largely because I prefer the atmosphere and design ethics of the Resistance as opposed to the hum-drum war setting and mechanics of those other shooters.

Either way, Insomniac have already stated that they're moving on from Resistance. It makes me worry all the more about Overstrike though. I don't see it selling at all, given the ever increasing focus on what is popular. It saddens me.

Still, I expect R3 to be at a million by year's end and maybe double that by the middle of next year. The sales will come methinks.

Can't say i'm surprised, the series has never been great imo. I found it lacking in almost every single department excluding the inventive weaponry. I can't see monthly sales figures improving either, with Gears of War 3 being unleashed this week.

270,000 copies sold is laughable for an established franchise. But imo, the biggest laughing stock of September was Dead Island. I cannot believe i touched that sh!te. I needed to wash my hands & somehow get my 4 hours back after grinding through that travesty.

Should have tried to release it as a summer release, the huge summer lull where no big games are scheduled may have helped it out. I got it day one, love it.

Doing something spectacular with the plot wouldn't have changed a damn thing IMO. What hardcore shooter fan nowadays actually cares about a single player in an FPS, even if it is good? Besides, R3 had a crapload of awesome, may I say, spectacular moments. Multiplayer can be taken either way, but if people were looking for something special in the single player department, then R3 wouldn't be selling like this.

Resistance is big, and it's AAA quality that's for sure.
But I don't think the name itself is big enough to be releasing so close to the big boys.
Resistance 3 may or may not be better than the likes of Killzone 3, Crysis 2, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3(obviously better but not bigger.......).
But in terms of popularity, it's the lowest among the shooters I mentioned.

In September, we had Dead Island, Gears 3(taking into account that some PS3 owners have a 360 as well), RE4 HD and NHL 12.

And then there's FIFA 12, NBA 2K12, Ace Combat, Batman:AC and Battlefield 3 all releasing next month.

With the exception of Dead Island, I don't think Resistance 3 can compete with any of them. Add to the fact that PS3 exclusives never sold big.

Resistance 3 came at a bad time. Everybody is falling over themselves for Dead Island, a game that was rushed out the door yet people badly want because it's a popcorn game and the equivalent of hot sex on the beach. You also have Gears Of War 3 and the upcoming battle between Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3. You also had Madden '12, NHL '12, Deus EX and Disgaea 4.

Still, they will get their sales over time. I doubt it will be the end of the Resistance series. Just bad timing.

Honestly, the only games I want beyond today are Arkham City, Uncharted 3 and Super Mario Land 3DS. I have no interest in the Assassin's Creeds, Skyrims, Battlefield 3s, Modern Warfare 3s, Saints Row 3s and anything else out there. I just don't have the time any more.

The Beta was garbage. The multiplayer is garbage. The story is good at first but goes downhill towards the end. No wonder it's not selling. It's simply not all that great as the reviews might have you belive. Who is reviewing these games? Stevie Wonder? I had high hopes for R3 till some of my friends and i got the beta. It was unanimous. 7 out of 7 thought it was garbage. I was very disappointed to say the least. Since it's release,NONE of the 60+ people on my friends list are playing this crappy,over reviewed,failing game. None,Zero,Nada. And i have a couple level 20 & one level 21 trophy hunters on my list and even they passed on this game. If they bury this series i say GOOD RIDDANCE.

Yeah where I live Dead Island was sold out at all retail stores for almost a week. My brother wanted to buy it but could not find it anywhere. He was considering buying Resistance 3 but was turned off by the 10 hour campaign since he beats every game we get fairly quickly which is why he wanted dead island. We don't play online either since our connection is not that great. We'll get it eventually though. We got the first two resistance games and enjoyed them.

Picked it up mainly for the fact that it had sp campaign coop. Played it with my brother and was a bit underwhelmed to start. He loved it but was pissed when I kept getting the weapon upgrades. Him: Why don't my shotgun shells do that!?! Me: Step your game up, Grim!

It grew on me and I even followed through to platinum. The story and characters could have been more developed. The campaign could have been longer and finished with a better conclusion. Worth a playthrough for all fans of the series IMO. A great run for the developer, but even an Insomniac must eventually sleep.

Tragically, a day after completing R3, my original 60GB phatty bricked. Infected by the Chimeran virus and overheated?

You fought valiantly in the Sony resistance for 4 years my beloved, hot blooded, black mamba. After initially wanting to eviscerate and defenestrate you, I now lay you to rest in the plot of my spare closet, alongside my much maligned 61" Samsung DLP...perhaps to be resurrected and reflowed at a later date, perchance to dream media molecule style into the collective gaming consciousness of dead PS3's everywhere, forever and ever.

The Multiplayer is where R3 shines but unfortunately it has issues and needed multiple patches to get things running which by that time people already made there decision to either avoid R3 or sell/trade it. Its been 2 weeks give it time it will sell a bit more hopefully. And i doubt Gears 3 will affect sales but i gotta admit since i have a 360 which i rarely play but after i bought gears 3 i cant even put the controller down its badass. I Cant even go Back to R3 after this. But i can tell you on Uncharted 3 release day my 360 will start to collect dust again.

I was more forgiving cuz i like online play but that area has issues too. After the 3rd patch i was like bored of it. Dusted off my 360 after year in hiatus got gears 3 and cant stop playing it.

I certainly don't buy buy a game based on weither it its exclusive, but when pre ordering a game I want to make sure its a game I will like. If its a game where I'm not entirely sure what it will be like. Through my experience, exclusives usually are higher quality and I usually enjoy them more.

Though usually I dont ever pre order a game if I am not sure what it will be like.

My favorite ps3,360,wii,psp,n64,ps2 ect have always been exclusive games and definitely not because they are exclusive.

yes of course I buy good games just because they are good, most of my games are multi platform, and there are plenty of non exclusive games I've pre order and bought over the years.


@Alienange

Why is that? If all developers focused on maxing out hardware and taking advantage of all its features and abilities, the games would be better

It's a nice game series but I can't say I'm terrible surprised by the news. The FPS shooter genre is PACKED. It is the defining genre of this generation, and between Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo, Killzone, Crysis, and many more, it's hard for comparatively minor series like Resistance to get noticed. Maybe it goes away for a while, but hopefully not for good.

Picked it up day one, and enjoyed it immensely. I am not much a Resistance multiplayer fan, but when it comes to singleplayer and co-op, I have always loved Resistance.

Well, let's look at this later in the year when the first 3 months of sales have been totaled. Slow burn has been the name of the game before for PS3 games, especially exclusives. Let's count this up, after the holiday season.

Also, assuming the 275K are NA-only sales, R3 is over half-way to being a Greatest Hit in one week...hardly *poor* sales.

Just another good game that choose a bad time to release.

People are saving their money for the crazy fall this year for

1. MW3
2. Battlefield 3
3. Gears of War 3
4. Assassin's Creed Revilations.

and many more.

I guess the hype for resistance 3 wasn't as strong as it should of been.

Why I didn't buy it, 1 was great being launch title an co-op enjoying a game with a friend made the game amazing at launch. 2 came out an said F-U co-op mean while i was all prepared to sit with my friend again an partake in the 2nd part of the story an continue what we started. So when they said FU to me i said FOOKU to them. I wanna play the 3rd being that co-op's back but they ruined the game for me an pissed me off so i give them alittle payback an put some pain where it hurts an possibly destroys the series. I know i'm 1 person an everybody has there reason for giving R3 the bird. This is mine.

I'm not giving it the bird at all. I hardly buy any games on release day. I bought R1 and R2. I'll get R3 eventually as well.

You should buy games because they are good games, and avoid games that are bad games. Assassin's Creed 1 was repetitive... I'm not going to give AC2 and the rest "the bird" just because of that...

I mean, really, the way you are doing things would tell them, "I bought R2, but not R3" and that is all. Basically, you are showing support for R2 because of what it is... they bring back co-op and you don't invest. They are going to think co-op is not a good investment. Not the other way around.

Well, I'm extremely sad to see such poor sales for what I consider to be the best shooter of the year thus far. But at this point, I'm pretty sure this'll mean the end of the series. And that's not good, because they still left a couple mysteries that would have been good jump off points for other Resistance games. And the really bad news is, with the shooter market being focused on military-based shooters right now, I don't see good sales for Overstrike either. So not only am I disappointed in the market, I fear for the survival of Insomniac at this point.

Hopefully Sony gives IG another chance to make a new IP, maybe even a launch title for PS4. If they did that, maybe IG could bounce back from a disappointment like this. But I'll bet its hard to know you made such a quality game and have it be tossed on the wayside like this.

I do kinda hope Sony has learned a little about scheduling from this game too. Just because its a fairly established series doesn't mean it can go against the clusterf*ck that is fall/winter 2011.

Let's be honest with ourselves, this game didn't sell because it's garbage. It's completely unoriginal, there are four far better shooters being released around this time. For all their talk Insomniac games ran this series into the ground. Was my copy the only one full of bugs? because no one seems to talking about that. RIP Resistance series you were great once but it's best for all if we pull the plug and let you die!

"I see lots of Resistance 3 haters over here ".

More fan then anything else . Everyone who said something against resistance get lots of thumbs down .

The first two were good in my mind , but never good enough to warrant a buy from me .I would nt give up on a R4 tho . Like some said there is still some time for it to sell more .Maybe once people are done playing all the great games coming before year end , they will buy R3 .

This is an awesome game - but lets face it - releasing it with in the 3 month period as the other shooter big hitters - Gears3,BF3,MW3,UC2 and HALO CE wasn't the brightest of ideas - people have only so much cash to spend on the run up to xmas - I suspect RAGE - which also looks an awesome game and even with it being multiplatform could suffer a similar fate.

KZ3 and Crysis2 were much smarter releasing 3 months after MOH,BLOPS and Reach.

And killing off Hale at the end of R2 might not have been the smartest - you don't see Gears killing off Marcus Fenix or Uncharted swapping out Drake. Its would be like two and 1/2 men getting rid of Charlie Sheen - madness...

It's all because there's just way too many awesome games out right now and let's face it, money is tight worldwide right now. I love Resistance and I would have R3 right now if I hadn't bought Resident Evil 4 HD and all the add-ons I needed for my other games recently. Some are saving money for the "other" new shooters coming out. Plus, with R3 launching the same day Dead Island did wasn't a great idea. Everyone wants a zombie game right now because of Halloween coming. I'm saving for Resident Evil: ORC myself. Don't want to get into another open world game until Skyrim comes out because i'm still working on two worlds II and Fallout: New Vegas (i'm lagging a bit, i know). Besides what I've seen of DI doesn't impress me much. I will own R3, but can't say when.

Too bad this game didn't take off. I didn't care much for Resistance 2 and that almost put me off on buying R3 but after reading reviews and hearing some feedback from friends I changed my mind and I'm happy I did because R3 is right up there with the first game as one of the best FPS this generation. Great story, a likeable cast of characters, great pacing in the campaign and fun multiplayer. The game deserves better sales, hopefully the positive reviews and word of mouth will help it out.

Well, at least Sony will hopefully realize that PSN Pass sure didn't help sell anymore copies, only pissing people off.

There wasn't hype. There were no commercials. Everyone is preoccupied with whether they will play MW3 or Battlefield 3. They didn't push this game as hard as they should have.
