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?

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Old Iron King

While Dark Souls II brought me back to that special place that I found with Demon's Souls in many ways, the first DLC pack, Crown of the Sunken King, didn't go far enough with its concepts. It's really hard to give ...more

OlliOlli grinds perfectly onto PS4 and PS3

Minimalist skateboarding game OlliOlli first kickflipped its way into our hearts this January when it landed on PlayStation Vita, and now it's rolled onto PS3 and PS4. The console version is every bit as gnarly as its portable predecessor. Plus, it features cross-buy and cross-save functionality, so experienced shredders needn't stall jumping back in.more
