TGS 08: PSP Plus Revealed For Resistance Retribution
Resistance Retribution was announced at E3 for the PSP and details on how that game and Resistance 2 were going to play together wasn’t available at the time, TGS 08 made those answers clear today.
When you connect R:R with R2 using the USB cable you gain access to a new mode called Infected Mode. Quoted from the Playstation Blog:
Infected mode provides an alternate story within our alternate history. While in prison for desertion, Grayson is recruited by Specter Lieutenant David LaSalle (from the R2 storyline) and is infected with a mutated version of the Chimeran virus … a different version of the virus that infects Nathan Hale.“
Some of the R2 weapons like the HE .44 Magnum become available in this mode, he can breathe underwater, regernative health and new intel will be there to collect. Collecting all of it unlocks the Plasma grenade for R2.
But that isn’t the best part. Like the title suggest when hooked up a new feature called PSP Plus is available. PSP Plus lets you use your Dualshock 3 controller to play the game. It will support vibration as well.
PSP Plus I something I would love to see expand to more games then just R:R. With this news they are making R2 and R:R quite irresistable.
