Breaking: Resistance 2 Details

Surfer Girl just keeps coming at us with details. This time it's about none other than Insomniac's anticipated sequel, Resistance 2. She writes:

"Insomniac Games is indeed developing Resistance: Fall of Man 2 (no, not Rise of Man, as some people have created) tentatively scheduled for release next November. Aside from the first and last level, the game takes place entirely in the United States, where someone who may or may not be Sgt. Nathan Hale (who plays a role in the story) has to deal with the Chimeran invasion of the US in such places as San Francisco and Chicago. And there is a cliffhanger ending that sets up for a third title. Vehicles will be included in multiplayer this time around, one will be able to take to the sky with three new vehicles or boogie it down on the ground with the three vehicles from the first game's Campaign."
We will try to get in touch with Surfer Girl to see if we can find out more.

Unreal Tournament III: Just PLAYSTATION 3 & PC?

More and more is Unreal Tournament III looking like a PLAYSTATION 3 exclusive.

For example: Mike Capps (President of Epic Games) states in the following video that "We´re just on PLAYSTATION 3, so we get to focus on that platform." Adding to that, on the GameTrailers site itself Unreal Tournament III shows as PS3 and PC only.

Even more evidence shows on the official Unreal Tournament III site which displays the boxart for the PS3 and PC versions, with no Xbox 360 boxart in sight.

Could all this lead to a final word by Epic that they are in fact releasing UT3 as a PS3 exclusive? Is this another Haze in the making? Only time will tell.

The request is not done in a vacuum, in fact a member of the house of Osaka has specifically requested that the signatures are at least 10,000 fans if we really want to attract the attention of developers!One suggestion that did best hope for many other fans Residen Evil, which have come immediately on the website of the petition bringing even more signatures."

Game Informer: Warhawk Expansion Coming?

In the latest issue of Game Informer, a very juicy rumor is spotted:
"There aren't any screens available yet, but we saw an early version of this expansion pack in action. The big news is the addition of a new vehicle: the dropship. Armed with six missle turrets and the ability to pick up ground vehicles (like tanks), the dropship will definently change the face of battle - so much so that previous zones will be modified slightly to integrate the new vehicle."
They state the release date as December, no pricing information was given. We can only hope for an official statement to be made.
