Resistance is Futile, 2.70 Firmware is On Deck
It appears James Stevenson of Insomniac Games has let the cat out of the bag in regards to firmware update 2.70. According to James, the latest R2 patch that will allow for dual PSN logins for split screen play will require a firmware update. He admitted this during some banter in Joystiq’s comments.
“This is correct. Resistance 2 is the first game to fully log-in two PSN accounts. LBP only logs you in locally, and does not register both accounts as online through PSN.
This is a big difference, and what is required for split-screen online co-op with other folks.
And it was dependent on a Sony update, hence why it wasn’t in when the game shipped.”
So there we have it. Hopefully the FW update will go live soon and we will find out what goodies await!
