Resistance: Burning Skies, Pure Chess, more added to PS Store

Sony has performed their weekly update on the PlayStation Store and added a pair of new Vita games, a pair of new PSN games, and a pair of new full PS3 games.

This week’s Vita update features Sony’s new FPS for the handheld, Resistance: Burning Skies. Also available is a chess simulator, Pure Chess.

And speaking of Pure Chess, the game is also available on the PSN. Both versions include PS3/Vita cross-platform play, but sadly, each version of the game is a separate download. So if you want it on both the PSN and the Vita, you’ll have to buy it twice. If you’d prefer something a little less cerebral in your PSN downloads, also new is the off-road racer Mad Riders.

On the PS3 Full Game front, Sony has added Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Rayman Origins to the store this week.

Finally, there’s more Rayman in the PS2 Classics section as Rayman Arena has also been added as well as a Vita demo of Gravity Rush.

Hit the jump for a complete rundown on all of these titles, and head over to the PlayStation Blog for a look at this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

Resistance: Burning Skies invades PS Vita on May 29

With the PlayStation Vita now available in stores, Sony is hard at work on a second wave of titles that’ll hit the handheld later this year. And the first of those games, Resistance: Burning Skies, now has a release date: May 29, 2012.

Unlike the PSP’s Resistance: Retribution, which was a third-person shooter, Burning Skies will retain the first person perspective of its PS3 brethren. According to Sony, it will be the first portable game ever controlled using a dual-analog stick setup and a “console-quality shooter.”

And if that’s not enough, you might want to know that it also stars a fireman:

Resistance: Burning Skies pulls you into an entirely new dimension of the Resistance universe. Set in a tale of survival during the August 1951 Chimeran invasion of the East Coast, you take control of Tom Riley, an everyday firefighter from New Jersey who is thrown headfirst into the teeth of the Chimeran war machine, forcing him to redefine his notions of duty and heroism.

Resistance: Burning Skies added to Vita lineup

Fans of the Resistance series got some splendid news today with the announcement of Resistance: Burning Skies for the PlayStation Vita. Starring a brand new protagonist, the game is being developed specifically for the Vita, and has a story written by William C. Dietz, author of both Resistance novels.

I loved Resistance: Retribution for the PSP, and I can’t wait to see how the series will translate onto the futuristic hardware of the Vita.
