Resistance 2 PS3 to blast split-screen online play

Insomniac Games this week said that Resistance 2 for Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 will feature split-screen online play when the title is released in Nov.
The Resistance 2 developer said that the title will feature two-player split-screen competitive play and a split-screen eight-player co-op online campaign.

Additionally, a bonus disc sold in the Collector's Edition will be in Blu-ray format instead of standard DVD.

Resistance 2 is the first-person follow up to the PS3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man. The latest version will include 300-ft enemies and new online multiplayer modes.

It will be sold in a stand-alone SKU for $59.99 and a Collector's Edition SKU for $79.99.

incredible. it's like a FPS version of gauntlet with a mix of RPG classes.
i imagine this is what GoW2's horde mode will be like, but on a larger scale.

i didn't care for competitive multiplayer at all, but R2 co-op is a home run and will cause me to purchase the game.

it's very hard too.
8 people have to be a mix of classes as they all provide a service and better work together.
when all 8 die, the mission ends.

horizontal.

played a ton more last night, i find the graphics much better looking in the co-op maps vs the competitive maps.
8 player was completely lag free aside from the network disconnects which i'll attribute to being a beta.

Anyone else have any opinions/impressions on the co op? This is looking to be the most promising game coming out this fall for sheer playtime if the co op is really that good

Reading though posts on other forums ,, I've noticed that
People are either in Love with Co-Op, or in love with Competitive. But rarely love both. It's amazing that there is something for everyone in this, and it has such a broad appeal so far.
