Conjuring up images of secret midnight rendezvous, hushed whispers under dimly lit street lamps in the fog and lots of looking around anxiously, Eurogamer has reported that a couple of ‘anonymous’ developers have told them that the new PS3 firmware is to arrive next Month.
In what would be a first for PlayStation 3, Insomniac’s James Stevenson recently revealed that a patch for Resistance 2 is set to enable a second player to join a co-op using a different PSN ID but on the same console. The Gamespot video featuring the revelation has since been pulled but the sources suggest that this is certainly not the last we’ve heard of the new feature, which may also be implemented in other titles following the firmware update.
Incidentally, the Resistance 2 patch will also include the Meltdown multiplayer mode from Resistance: Fall of Man and a “Superhuman” difficulty level for co-op, as well the Aftermath map pack, rumored to feature smaller-scale maps for closer, more intense battles.
