Amazon is offering an early access demo with pre-orders for Sony Bend’s PlayStation Portable title, Resistance: Retribution through January 12. A demo isn’t exactly a headband, but this should be quite the treat for those excited about Retribution and its connectivity with Insomniac’s Resistance 2.

The connectivity was officially revealed at TGS this year. Anyone with a copy of R2 and Retribution will have access to a special mode called “Infected.” As we already know from E3, the protagonist in Retribution is a normal guy – he doesn’t have the Chimeran virus like Nathan Hale does in the PlayStation 3 titles. The mode gives Grayson the virus and the perks that come with it, but it also drastically alters the way the game unfolds. The cut-scenes, gameplay, and visuals all change.

The other connectivity feature is called “PSP Plus” and will allow players to play Retribution with a PS3 controller. Both modes require a USB cable to connect the PSP to the PS3, and the two modes can be unlocked in R2’s option menu.

This is pretty exciting stuff. I haven’t used my PSP for anything other than Loco Roco and a coaster for guests since I got it. It’ll be nice to have an excuse to use my PSP and the PS3’s connectivity. Is anyone here going to bite on this Amazon deal?

Did you get in on the Destiny beta? I did, but only after access was opened to all. Managed to play for about an hour which, after the cut scenes and loading, wasn't enough time for me to get a true sense of how I feel about ...more

Video: Much of Advanced Warfare's plot revealed by trailer, and I think I smell a beta coming

A campaign trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare came out which goes over some of the plot points. I also speculate on some rather obvious, yet still uncertain, plot developments to come. The trailer also announced a multiplayer reveal coming August 11, which I theorize could come with a beta announcement.more
