Resistance: Burning Skies Spreads The Chimera Virus

With the release of Resistance: Burning Skies for the Playstation Vita only a mere ten days away, Frank Simon, Senior Managing Producer at SCEA decided to come down to Australia and reveal a few social features of the first person shooter. The feature that Simon talks about is quite strange. He actually talks about how owners of the game can infect other Playstation Vitas with the Chimera virus. No, it will not turn you Vita into a Chimera, but it will help you with multiplayer. An infected Vita will give players a multiplayer bonus.

In addition to being infected, gamers can also spread the virus itself, infecting friends and complete strangers. This is achieved through the use of near, the location based app. With that said, it seems that spreading the virus will be more effective with Wi-Fi/3G models, but possible with the Wi-Fi only models as well. You can hear Simon talking about the new social feature in a video below. Resistance: burning Skies will be released across Australia and New Zealand on May 31. Capsule Computers will be reviewing the game, so check that out once it is done.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some DarkspawnI started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come).In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers.If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West.Oh and anime is awesome!
