Ted Price talks Post-Launch Resistance | talked to Insomniac CEO Ted Price about Resistance, following the launch of the PS3. We’ve heard most of this before, but there are some small little tidbits that are new.

First off, there’s confirmation that Resistance takes 16GB.

GP: Speaking of giant generational leaps, does Resistance really use 22GB on a Blu-ray disc?

Price: No, it doesn’t. We actually cut back to 16GB. We have a lot of data to create those levels, those assets are so much more complex than anything we’ve been able to build in the past. All those assets take up space. You’ve got a lot more maps per character, characters that use significantly more polygons than previous characters. Ratchet had 20-30 animations per character and in Resistance we have 300-400 animations for some of our characters.

Sound has also gotten much bigger, and it’s also higher fidelity [and] in 7.1. HD video takes a lot of space as well. So the list kind of just goes on and on. Basically, as a developer, it’s great to have a storage medium like the Blu-ray because it’s room for us to continue to grow.

Then there’s some interesting talk about how this game could fit on a DVD.

GP: What kind of slashes would you have to do to squeeze a game like Resistance onto a standard DVD?

Price: [Laughs] We couldn’t. The game, as built, would simply not fit. We would have to take out entire levels of the game and that’s just not cool. The game doesn’t work if you don’t have all the levels. We built the gameplay around the story and removing a couple levels means the story falls apart and there’s no reason to play the game.

Strangley enough, even though this game is really really good, I find myself playing CoD3 online more than Resistance. Resistance just seems to be plain mayhem, while CoD3 give you a chance to think about what you want to do before you get killed. 🙂

Q&A: Insomniac CEO Ted Price talks Resistance

  • Knighthawk

    Yes I agree, online Resistance is pure mayhem, but what’s up with no voice chat? Voice chat just makes the game so much more fun!

  • Knighthawk

    No voice chat for COD3 that is what i mean, Resistance his it, why not COD3?

  • Pc

    I do know that Resistance online is way better than Gears online !!!! I haven’t played CoD3 online yet.

  • i still haven’t played resistance online. i’m kind of afraid to, since i’m not very good! i did finally beat it on easy though!

  • Sporty

    I’ve played resistance several times onine. Pretty fun really. First Console FPS i’ve played online. Last FPS was quake 3 which I spent 2 years playing online 😀 so I’m one of those that think FPS’s should be kb/mouse. But I did enjoy resistance. Haven’t finished the single player yet since I’m also in the middle of zelda.

    Dont worry bunnyhero, I suck also. however I did make the lead a few rounds. averaged mid so they have a lot of people that also suck. I jumped into ranked like a idiot so my stats kinda suck now. But who cares in the end it’s all about fun

  • Knighthawk

    Yeah bunnyhero, it’s all about fun! Besides, the more you play the better you will get! I’ll be happy to train with you sometime online. My online ID is KNIGHTHAWK

  • I think the resistance patch may put to rest some of the spawning issues which make it so hectic.

  • I was afraid of playing online at first too. But one day I said what the heck and signed up for an unranked match. Did a lot of dying. But it’s still fun.
