The lights are on
During the Sony press conference in Cologne, Germany today, the company revealed a new Resistance title for the Vita. Resistance: Burning Skies is being developed by Nihilistic Software, who mentioned that they're working with Insomniac on the title. Unlike the PSP's Resistance: Retribution, this will be a full first-person shooter.
The game takes place right before the events of Resistance 2, as the Chimera are invading the east coast of the United States. Burning Skies puts you in the shoes of NYC fireman Tom Riley, and the gameplay demo took place on Ellis Island. It showcased several pieces of Vita functionality, such as tapping the screen to direct grenades, a dedicated melee button on the front screen, and using Sixaxis motion to peek out from behind cover. In addition, the series' trademark weapon wheel can also be accessed via the touch screen.
No release date was announced for the game, but the brief gameplay demo looked fantastic for a portable.

The line-up for the Vita is going to be great. ^_^
Sweet, like I neeeded another reason to get a Vita.
Great games for the Vita but I have way too much money going else where!! I will have to pick it up at a later date when there are a lot more games and firmware updates !
Im done buying hand helds at launch.. thanks Nintendo for that !
Very happy they officially announced this. I love everything Resistance related so this is a must buy for me.
I've never played Resistance on my PS3 but this sounds like the game that will change all that and make me a believer!
That point in time in the fiction should be very interesting to watch unfold
The only thing I saw bad In this demo was the Chimera axe death. Looked kind of cheesy, but the rest looked great!
I liked the Retribution story but I wanted it to be first person because that is what the game was... this is better :)
so many games i want the vita so bad
Not to be a ***, but i'm definitely getting the Vita, NOT for this game :/
