Speaking at the PAX Prime keynote, Insomniac designer Ted Price outlined what he believes to be the four most important components to making a great game.
It seems the Resistance series may, finally, be over.
The first three entries in Insomniac's Resistance FPS series are to be bundled up and sold as one, Sony has confirmed.
The PlayStation 3 release was first sighted on Amazon France by CVG, with a 16th May release date quoted.
Publisher Sony has since confirmed to Eurogamer that the pack is the real deal and more details will be announced soon.
Insomniac big cheese Ted Price has recorded a video statement confirming yesterday's news that the developer will no longer work on the PS3 series of Resistance games.
Insomniac has confirmed it will not make any more Resistance games.
Insomniac boss Ted Price told VG247, "We won't be making any more Resistances."
Price's comments confirm the suggestion that Insomniac - now working on Overstrike for EA and smaller games for its new Insomniac Click division - was done with the PlayStation exclusive shooter series following comments from creative director Marcus Smith in August last year.
Long-delayed Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection has finally launched on the EU PlayStation Store this week. The compilation contains 2D classics Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 in one bundle.
The game had originally been due for an August launch alongside its Xbox Live Arcade counterpart, but continually failed to appear, something Sony blamed on a "technical issue".
Back to Karkand, the first Battlefield 3 expansion, went live earlier this week and contains four maps from previous Battlefield instalments. PlayStation 3 gamers get it a week before their PC and Xbox 360 friends.
Grim-fighting new survival mode.
PlayStation 3 shooter Resistance 3 gets a new DLC pack tomorrow, publisher Sony has announced.
PlayStation 3 FPS sequel Resistance 3 sold 180,000 units during its first month on sale in the US, NPD analyst Anita Frazier has told Eurogamer.
That's a significant drop-off compared to Resistance 2's 385,000 first month total back in November 2008. Resistance 2 went on to sell around three million copies worldwide.
Resistance 3, which picked up a healthy 8/10 from Eurogamer on release, debuted at number four in the UK charts last month, behind Dead Island and Warhammer 40K: Space Marine.
Insomniac Games has announced a new patch for PlayStation 3 exclusive first-person shooter Resistance 3.
Patch 1.05 will continue to address issues, senior community manager James Stevenson wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
It includes two new maps for all players: the Creek and the Granary, Insomniac said.
Zombie survival title Dead Island has devoured last week's number one Deus Ex: Human Revolution to claim the UK chart's top spot.
PlayStation 3 exclusive shooter Resistance 3 isn't out yet in the UK, but that hasn't stopped Sony from announcing the game's first downloadable content.
The Resistance 3 Survival DLC pack goes live on 4th October for $3.99.
It includes a new multiplayer mode, called Invasion. This challenges humans and Chimera to capture and hold multiple control points for as long as possible.
Do you like single-player campaigns? I like single-player campaigns, and on the evidence of Resistance 3, Insomniac Games likes single-player campaigns. At a time when more and more shooters are seeing their story modes shrink in size and importance, used only to introduce the assets you'll be seeing online, the robust solo portion of Resistance 3 is a welcome return to the days when the campaign mode was the main course, not the appetiser.
It also feels very different to the previous games in the series, perversely ditching the aggressive militarism which is now so in vogue in FPS circles in favour of a more sombre tale. This is no longer a war game. The alien invasion that raged through the first two games (and one PSP spin-off) is all but over. Less than ten per cent of humanity remains alive and in hiding, and the Chimera are ruthlessly scouring the globe, exterminating survivors.
In the midst of this grim scenario we find Joe Capelli, a soldier dishonourably discharged after spoilery events at the end of Resistance 2. When we meet him, he's living in a makeshift refugee camp in Oklahoma with his wife and four-year-old son. When the Chimera arrive, his family flees into the wasteland, leaving Joe to cling to one last hope: that the fact the Chimera are channelling huge amounts of energy to New York means there's something important there that can end their brutal occupation.
Your wallet is no longer safe. The games releases arrive thick and fast this week, with two platform exclusives, two hotly anticipated multiplatform releases and a unique Japanese thing - all fighting for your money.
Downloadable DeathSpank threequel The Baconing headlines this week's EU PlayStation Store update. As part of Sony's PlayStation Network Play promotion, co-op character Roesha comes unlocked.

Insomniac trilogy concludes 6th Sept.
A couple of weeks back, we received our copy of the Battle: Los Angeles Blu-ray. In common with many, the only reason we bought this tragically poor movie was because of the inclusion of a download code for the Resistance 3 demo. The chance to get an early peek at the Insomniac's latest work was too tempting to pass up - we'd left E3 unconvinced about the game's merits and felt certain that more hands-on time would present a much more positive experience.
The Resistance 3 public beta kicks off on 10th August for PlayStation Plus subscribers, developer Insomniac Games has announced via the PlayStation Blog.

What's 2011's best PS3 shooter?
And on a boat.
The first thing you notice about Resistance 3 is that it's brown. Utterly, overwhelmingly, gloriously brown. At a time when grimy beige levels have become a derided shooter cliché, there's something delightfully perverse about Insomniac's decision to show off its new game with what is quite possibly the brownest gaming experience in history. What makes it more impressive is that it totally works, and makes perfect sense in context.
