The Resistance 2 multiplayer is probably one of the best multiplayer for PlayStation 3. On this basis there are many users who expect great innovations of Insomniac Games for next title in series Resistance 3.
However, Marcus Smith, creative director of the project has confirm that the number of users of multiplayer is not yet confirmed but will be reduced: "The approach to multiplayer in Resistance 3 is to really streamline the things that were popular with Resistance 1 and Resistance 2. Obviously, weapon usage is a big one, but we also have our progression through multiplayer, which is a lot tighter. It’s going to reward people as they go."
On the other hand also revealed some of the intentions for design of the maps: "We’re also setting the location of all multiplayer maps in various locations around the world. During the single-player campaign, you’ll be hearing updates of those battles as you’re progressing through the game."
Insomniac wants to make the online mode a little more precise and clearer. Resistance 3 will release exclusively for PS3 in 2011.
Starting today, Title Update 6 gives a new reason for Gears of War fans to load up their Lancers and rev their chainsaws. The title update, available today on Xbox LIVE, introduces a new public multiplayer match feature called Social Matches that allows you to jump in or out of games without disruptions, including Horde mode matches. Social matchmaking also lets your party join a match already in progress or start a new match if there are no suitable matches to be found.
Social matching is open to anyone who owns all four downloadable map packs, available as a single download by purchasing the “All Fronts Collection,” now at the new discounted price of 800 Microsoft Points.

A few days ago there appeared a new trailer for Medal of Honor and with it, made it clear the launch date for this game on PS3, XBox 360 and PC: October 12, 2010. For some reason in the same trailer (but in its official game site) appeared a resounding "Pre-order now. Beta coming soon”.
The reason why this important announcement was not released in the first version of the trailer is unknown so far, but it is clear that Medal of Honor is in addition to what you are doing with so much noise Halo: Reach at this time: MoH will be a multiplayer beta.
If the game appears on 12 October is likely to see the beta about 30 days before launch. Multiplayer section is provided by the Swedish DICE, so we know the potential of the series and gives the developers to wait for the beta in question. The requirements to access it and for which platforms will be available, is a mystery ... but I think we'll know more about it soon.
