Incoming from Insomniac! Resistance: Fall of Man Patch

Greg Phillips's Avatar Posted by on Oct 31, 2007 // Senior Producer, SIE

We interrupt the final Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction dev diary post for a special announcement

As some of you may have heard, a new patch for Resistance: Fall of Man will be hitting soon.

How soon you may ask? As soon as this afternoon!

Major changes are listed below and full patch notes can be found on myresistance.net.

-Ability to take screenshots in game using a USB keyboard.
-Weapon balance changes and new round balancing options -Dual Shock 3 support added for online AND single player.
-Password protected custom games.
-Numerous bug fixes.

If you try to login and cannot, it means we are staging the patch for deployment. Or California was hit by another earthquake. One or the other. We now return you to the scheduled finale of RCF: TOD: the
Developer Diaries
. And go watch the new Uncharted trailer while you’re at it :)

Awesome! I heard about it on the podcast, but I wasn’t expecting the update to hit today.

Sweet Jeebus. And I lent out my copy of Resistance to my friend who just bought a PS3.


+ brambler on October 31st, 2007 at 2:00 pm said:

Cool! My team got rocked in the Resistance tourney on Gamespot.com last night. So far we have been the only team to play a match, because none of the others have had enough players

thats nice in all but wheres are firmware 2.00 upgrade??


+ Elsa43 on October 31st, 2007 at 2:13 pm said:

I’ve looked over the changes and I have to say .. .NICE!! Insomniac seems to keep finding ways to keep this game interesting, fresh and fun.

I regularly play with a group on Friday nights and many thought this game would fade away as other, newer games released… but almost a year later we are still playing Resistance on Friday nights! :)

Thanks Insomniac! (for 2 great PS3 games!)


+ Loki_344 on October 31st, 2007 at 2:13 pm said:

Good news. I just got the game and my first experience playing online will be more refined.


+ grashopper on October 31st, 2007 at 2:14 pm said:

Now I need a USB keyboard to try that out, it sounds kinda cool

Anyway enough with the 2.00 crap this post has nothing to do with that so lets keep it that way


+ chase on October 31st, 2007 at 2:14 pm said:

will there be any metals now


+ XxBigP123xX on October 31st, 2007 at 2:16 pm said:

wheres the motorstorm patch!?!?!?!?!?!?!

also why couldnt you just use a button combo to take a screen shot?


+ grashopper on October 31st, 2007 at 2:18 pm said:

I wish it was a button on the controller for the screenshot thing though like select maybe, it would be a little easier to hit and everyones got that button….does select do anything in Resistance??


+ chintz on October 31st, 2007 at 2:18 pm said:

excellent i was waiting to see when insomniac and sony would release a vibration patch for resistance my favorite game for ps3, until of course the new AAA exclusives come out. BTW any news of resistance 2? it better have stellar graphics and even mre weapons.


+ lakaihigh on October 31st, 2007 at 2:27 pm said:

this is awesome!!! I use my keyboard all the time so now I can take screenshots of me PWNing (or gettin pwned). Thanks for the patch. And Im soooo sorry R:FoM. I haven’t played with you in sooo long due to Warhawk, but i promise you I’ll play with you tonight after class.

*off topic*

What was that whole thing about the Ratchet and Clank stuff in Resistance? I didn’t quite understand what that was… is it unlockable stuff in the game or is it an online achievement kind of thing?

Thanks guys,


+ KatanaKing on October 31st, 2007 at 2:29 pm said:

what about the new 2.0 firmware, any news on that as the new function for the PSP is useless without it……


+ Thr3e2wenty8 on October 31st, 2007 at 2:30 pm said:

Glitchers beware of the snapshot!!! BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!


+ aaquib on October 31st, 2007 at 2:33 pm said:

Cool, but can’t you end of the halloween with a surprise visit from Eric Lempell to discuss PS3 fw. 2.0?


+ enrichovega on October 31st, 2007 at 2:40 pm said:

It’s great to have continued updates + support a full year after release. Insomniac rules!!!

BTW: Maybe in the next update we get the ability to save and share in game videos ala Gaylo 3. Now that would be cool.

The R&C stuff are a handful of bangles to customize your character with. I’ll post a link with more info shortly.

Oh, and the patch should be live in 15-20 minutes.


+ brambler on October 31st, 2007 at 2:58 pm said:

Will the bangles be available to everyone? Or only players of a certain rank?


+ mywhitenoise on October 31st, 2007 at 2:59 pm said:

Hey Greg, I know this is sort of off topic, but could you guys consider making an update for Ratchet and Clank some time, that gives you the option to use your old armor? I like seeing Ratchets face.


+ Bender Rodriguez on October 31st, 2007 at 3:00 pm said:

Kick ass. I didn’t expect to come out until way later.


+ chainlink13 on October 31st, 2007 at 3:03 pm said:

Your servers are in the Santa Clara Valley? Better retrofit those badboys! That quake was quite unsettling!

Info on how to get the R&C bangles in Resistance: Fall of Man can be found on the profile page of myresistance. Click on the My Unlockables link to get the code needed to unlock the goodies.

mywhitehouse – Sorry, there is no way to put Ratchet in his old armor.


+ Soong on October 31st, 2007 at 3:05 pm said:

I’m a PS3 noob, how are updates put out? Do I download it through the PSN Store or RFOM?

Secondly, any news on 2.0?


+ Delriach on October 31st, 2007 at 3:06 pm said:

An update for Ratchet with the ability to change his skin so you can see his face would be awesome…


+ Soong on October 31st, 2007 at 3:08 pm said:

Do you all fancy him or something? Print out a screenshot and keep it by your pillow if you dig his face that much.


+ Delriach on October 31st, 2007 at 3:10 pm said:

Oy. When you get the final armor to the game, it covers his face. Meaning when you see the scenes to the game, you don’t see him animate his face. Even if you change his skin to Mustashio, the armor is completel covering him still.

A screenshot would be awesome… (I want that movie poster), but I’d like to see the character animate… I didn’t know I couldn’t change that. I’ll just create another file though and not buy the ultimate armor.


+ darkiewonder on October 31st, 2007 at 3:16 pm said:

OOH Awesome. Good job guys!


+ KatanaKing on October 31st, 2007 at 3:17 pm said:

if this is a blog by SCEA for playstation fans, then why is there no news on the 2.0 update from sony????

The PSP firmware 3.72 clearly states that for the new feature to be used fw2.0 is needed on the PS3…..

whats the point for updating the PSP if the PS3 update is not ready????? Pls explain as i am a little confused…..great game by the way R&C and gr8 to see continued support for another great launch game RFOM……keep up the good work.


+ chainlink13 on October 31st, 2007 at 3:18 pm said:

Why is everyone complaining about Firmware update 2.0 in this post (And I assume every other post as well)?


+ Neil on October 31st, 2007 at 3:22 pm said:

This is cool. Can’t wait to try it all out.


+ Chaos911 on October 31st, 2007 at 3:26 pm said:

What about voice chat in Spectator mode? Will the characters lip-sync now?
If so, then we might get back to work on Resist or Die.


+ Loucetios on October 31st, 2007 at 3:32 pm said:

i can’t get online with resistance, it says network error even though the PSn and everything else works!


+ Kazzin on October 31st, 2007 at 3:34 pm said:

this is freakin sweet but

trick or treat
give us update 2.0 and in game xmb


+ androvsky on October 31st, 2007 at 3:38 pm said:

I’m glad you’re still supporting Resistance, it makes me feel better about buying Insomniac titles (even more so than I already do, heh). Anyway, is there a chance for mouse+keyboard support (or a friendly “HAHA” if it already supports that)? My nephew helped me get through the demo, so I’m finding myself wanting to play the game, but I’ll be much more apt to if I could use PC controls.

Also, could someone from Sony jump on the blog and comment about the PS3 firmware? As amusing as it is to watch the hysteria in various ps3 forums, I think some fans are at their limit. Besides, the cat is pretty much out of the bag now, with the PSP update list mentioning the PS3 2.00 update in the changelog in some territories.


+ Pyrros on October 31st, 2007 at 3:41 pm said:

Bad timing with this update. Should have done this late at night. The Gamespot R:FOM Tourney is going on right now and this updated disconnected a bunch of teams in the middle of the matches.


+ Gregero on October 31st, 2007 at 3:45 pm said:

ah thats gonna be hilariously cool to see a bunch of people running around with Clanks on their backs. I’m gonna have a good ol afternoon on Resistance tonight.


+ darkwonders on October 31st, 2007 at 3:46 pm said:

It would be nice to have split screen online multiplayer. That would definitely make my day for RFOM


+ Soong on October 31st, 2007 at 3:48 pm said:

Update is now live.


+ osirisomeomi on October 31st, 2007 at 3:50 pm said:

Thanks for reaching out to the community like this. Posting replies in the comments section is particularly appreciated.


+ Soong on October 31st, 2007 at 3:52 pm said:

Wow, my download has slowed to a crawl. Would be cool if you posted bandwidth stats here when big stuff hits so we can see the effect.


+ west on October 31st, 2007 at 3:54 pm said:

I love ittt. Using the extra ram we have from the update to add in new features is genius. I love the print screen function its awesome.


+ Soong on October 31st, 2007 at 4:03 pm said:

Ouch, network failure at 80%. START AGAIN.


+ darkiewonder on October 31st, 2007 at 4:09 pm said:

I got it downloaded and installed. but network went down again :O

I want to get the ratchet unlockables! :O


+ grashopper on October 31st, 2007 at 4:10 pm said:

So is the screenshot thing just for online or offline or both??


+ Keysersoze10033 on October 31st, 2007 at 4:16 pm said:

That’s what I’m talking about.


+ Clinton514 on October 31st, 2007 at 4:20 pm said:

Hot damn this is most defiantly a reason for me to start playing Resistance again. Good job Insomniac! Any plans for Ratchet and screenshots? :D


+ zapruder on October 31st, 2007 at 4:21 pm said:

smart of you not to announce this big like WARHAWK did!


+ Johnny Sasaki on October 31st, 2007 at 4:25 pm said:

Hey, just fyi, that link to myresistance.net brought up an error for me, I think the “3” needs to be taken out of the URL ;)

Anyhoo, thanks for the good news! :D



+ chase on October 31st, 2007 at 4:32 pm said:
