So I am a bit late... but it has been brought to my attention that R3 won't be expanding on the 8 player co-op.

This is a traves-sham-mockery!!!!

Ya know... when i heard that Insomniac was going to take an "extra" year to develop Resistance 3... I was expecting them to take the best part of R2 (cuz it def wasn't the single player campaign)... and expand upon it to further its epic-ness.

Honestly the R2 co-op was the most fun I've had online... with the exception of maybe resident evil5. I am pretty bummed that I won't get to experience the level of team work and strategy that I enjoyed playing R2.

It really seems to me like Insomniac took a step backwards... despite taking more time to develop this game.
Yes I aware that the 16 player online competitive mode is supposed to be very deep...

And I would imagine that the campaign mode is going to regain the mojo it lost going from R1 to R2...

But I am seriously bummed.
I am reconsidering what WAS a day one purchase no questions asked...

Man I was excited for the Bundle too!!!!

BOOOOOOO INSOMNIAC!!! BOOOOO
They probably spent the entire extra year negotiating with MS.... BOOOOO!!!

I've known about this for a long time. The only thing I'm looking forward to is the single player campaign which I have high hopes for(I believe in, Insomniac!). I agree with you fully on the lack of 8 Player online campaign. It was the best online experience I've had and it's a real shame that they took it away from this. I was expecting an improvement with more in-depth alternate stories, tougher battles with bosses and DLC support for the future.

Im only in it for the SP campaign really, but the co-op is a shame. Maybe they will see the outcry and patch it back in...

Also, if there is more people then you can kill them more with bombs. (thats the only plus of a lot of people.)

Loved SP in 1, loved the SP 2. Especially the story you picked up from the intel. But agree, the dropping of the co-op is a shame. It has turned it into a rental for me.

This is crap man...I loved co-op to bits. Best part of the game, hands down. I know if there was no level cap, my medic would probably be like 70...Dang, still getting this day 1, but I'm really bummed. :(

I did like the co-op campaigns in R2, but R3 will have SP campaign co-op so I'm happy about that.

And 16 players is bad? That seems fine to me.

Im not too fussed. I read that the cut back was made to make the MP aspect better looking. Also to make it more "intimate" lol

How development and sequels work out in this generation:

first game: different, unique, little more improvements and it would be better

sequel/second game: becomes different, makes unnecessary changes that ruin the game to some extent, makes you wonder what made them do this

third game: they change it all around, not the same game and sadly that has happened to KZ3 and might be with R3.

All thanks to one game/series. I blame the devs and not that series since they are the ones choosing to copy it.

Yeah and when the game remains the same then the company is blamed for not innovating or changing the game other than graphical advancements so really whatever the devs do people are gonna QQ.

intimate my ***. what the heck, it's not like RFOM didn't have simple 8v8 matches on small maps and stuff. This is ******ed, the best part about resistance was the huge maps filled with players. Clan matches were so fun due to the large sizes, heck i remember going into ranked matches and facing an entire clan in a 20v20 match. :( Insomniac is truly dropping the ball.

Too many people who didn't "get" the 8 man co op complained about R2 sucking. They voiced their opinion the most and the loudest on forums and got what they wanted. I suggest we do the same leading up to the "hopefully" next sequal. Let's bi**h and moan so much that they have to bring back our beloved co op. Let's let our voices be heard. TBH i'll probably play R3 for a month and shelve it. Then i'll go back to R2.

Sad but true. :(
It happened to me with KZ3...it made me think how good the 2nd was and how much character the game had lost that made me go back and platinum the game...Quite a shame really, that once great games have to take a mainstream route thanks to COD *****es.

Insomniac had to cater to the complainers. The LCD. You know, the guys who want to feel like an MP god when they play a match. Any game that focuses on teamwork, or on an objective in the gameplay usually gets pi**ed on by the gaming media and by the majority of gamers. Look what happened to Brink. Completely different genre if you ask me. It wasn't just a typical shooter, yet they reviewed it like one. Anything that has classes in its MP portion has an uphill battle ahead of it. The K/D ratio clowns don't like that. They want instant gratification for themselves, and only themselves.

People need to stop catering to the COD fanboys and just stick to what they know, or what new ideas they have. Because honestly, I'm sick to death of the COD series/formula. The way it plays, the way it feels, and the players that inhabit it.

heck yeah, R2 would have been just like RFOM if it wasn't for COD4 mesmerizing the entire genre. I mean COD is/was fun but everyone copying them is starting to get annoying. I really thought R3 was gonna give me RFOm and r2 coop gameplay but i guess its just giving me another COD-Resistance hybrid.

Wait a second, I am a little confuzzled. So in R3 there is no co-op? None whatsoever?
I heard about making the online 16 players, but does that mean there is no online co-op mode at all?
