You’re Invited – Resistance: Burning Skies Lights Up San Francisco Next Week

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita - Executioner

Ever since the PS Vita’s second analog stick was revealed, gamers have been salivating for the first true portable FPS. We’re getting close; Resistance: Burning Skies will be released on May 29th. But what if you don’t want to wait that long? RBS developer Nihilistic will cross the Golden Gate next week to give the public a sneak peek hands-on with the first multiplayer FPS on PS Vita.

This won’t just be a casual run through the multiplayer game modes – we’ll be running a tournament with top players awarded a copy of the game when it releases, and a PS Vita prize package for the top overall gunner.

Resistance Burning Skies Multiplayer meet-up

Where: Thirsty Bear Brewing Company
(upstairs, second floor veranda)
661 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA

Does this mean we will finally get some significant information about Resistance: Burning Skies soon?

Jeff, is there ever going to be a PlayStation event near Missouri? I’ve always wanted to go to something like this, but they’re always held in Cali or New York.

    I’ll never say never, but nothing planned currently. Chicago is as close as we’ve gotten.

Oh sweet. I’ve been dying wondering where the information has gone on this game. I really wanted some updates!

I hope Nihilistic does the series justice, looking back at what they’ve done doesn’t fill me confidence. So far I like what I see, except when the chimera explode after been hit with an axe.

I know you love Vancouver BC, Jeff! Show us some love by bringing some of these events here! ;)

    I’d love to. I just found out that Granville Island doesn’t export their beer to the US. WTF is up with that??

Can you show nyc some resistance love, the game does take place in new york :)

Surfaced said:

April 11th, 3:19 pm

Sid, when you say “if you’re under 18 just bring a parent/guardian” – did you mean 21?

I’m 20, is there any point in taking the MUNI ride?

Just wondering, since you tell us to bring our IDs, but usually people say that when it’s 21+.

    You can come without a parent, you just can’t drink the booze.

The marketing for Vita games have been pathetic. I had no idea it was coming out this month.

@Jeff: “Hm, how about Toronto and you drive?”

Whoa! Wait, are you guys actually coming to Toronto?

Blkant said:

So no love for people who don’t conveniently live in a california again… Shame people can’t expand by making “public” hands on through streaming or temporary downloads, more or less, by digitalizing meetings and reaching out through the ever expanding and evolving potential of online networks, for those that don’t live on the west coast or other major cities.

2nd big PS Vita Blockbuster :) I want it …. give us more apps Sony :)

Busca-Cabezas said:

April 11th, 4:44 pm

Yes! I’m getting this game on launch! I’ve been also, seriously, contemplating the idea of moving to CA. Any tips on where should I go over @ CA in order to be close to all things games and PlayStation? ;-)

Heatseeker125 said:

April 11th, 4:58 pm

Heck yeah. Now this is why I bought a Vita — for real games with real dual analog sticks and physical buttons that I can take on the go. Not for YouTube or a web browser or casual games that are only fun for 5 minutes like some people on this blog. Looking forward to other real games being announced for Vita at E3 this year.

D-Roy12 said:

April 11th, 4:59 pm

Is this coming to Toronto? If it is I’ll definitely try it out.

Blkant said:

I’m with Tchanku. Show SE some attention would you.

I would really love to go, but I have work. For now I’ll be looking forward to that May launch date. Day 1 purchase.

luvtoseek said:

April 11th, 5:48 pm

This title’s looking great. I have such a backlog of games that I’m primarily focusing on Vita releases as I can take it w/ me. Unless there are more incentives to purchase both the console & the Vita version like The Show, I need to play & finish what I have first. Hmm, maybe this year’s Madden will have a similar feature/pricing model as The Show? I hope so!

Here’s to the Resistance series living on in the Vita! It’s such a rich franchise; keep it alive people!

remanutd5 said:

April 11th, 5:52 pm

my most anticipated vita title !!!! will there be a online multiplayer demo?

Partnur said:

April 11th, 6:30 pm

Word of advice to anyone going: Get there early! I went to the Unit 13 tourney & was told it was over shortly after it began. I doubt it goes later than 10.

Blkant said:

April 11th, 6:56 pm

Atl is part of the real south though, too risky. :P Mia however, I missed that one. Btw, you think 8 years of orlando is bad try 23. :P

Pudgyboi said:

April 11th, 7:02 pm

So tempted to go. I love the Resistance series and Minis!

lowrider007 said:

April 11th, 7:35 pm

Is that a real in-game shot?, I hope it is because it looks good.


April 11th, 8:01 pm

Jeff anything for the Los Angeles area? I know we get the most love here, but it would be nice if we get an invent like this. But I also can’t complain we do get E3! :)

Eh, the PS VITA is still pretty worthless yet. I should of waited to get one after a year or 2.By then it should live up to the hype Sony put out for it.

Korghano said:

Cautiously optimistic about this game, but there seems to be a dearth of media for it. Not much gameplay footage and very few screenshots.

I want the Multiplayer Challenges of Mass Effect 3!!! =(

remanutd5 said:

I hope this comes to PS3 too.

SolduNuts said:

I just got my Vita and this is my second most wanted game behind Uncharted. I like that this has true multiplayer even if it is only 8 players. Can’t wait for the first real FPS on a hand held gaming device.
