According to a comment on Joystiq's site by James Stevenson of Insomniac games, there should be a PS3 firmware update very soon.

When Joystiq posted details about the upcoming patch for Resistance 2, they said the patch would "allow a local co-op player to sign in with his PSN profile, saving his accumulated scores."

With that being said, the question of whether this was already possible with the PS3's current firmware or if a new PS3 update would be needed to enable this feature?

To answer and confirm, that indeed a new update would be needed, James Stevenson said the following in a comment posted on their site:
Quote:
This is correct. Resistance 2 is the first game to fully log-in two PSN accounts. LBP only logs you in locally, and does not register both accounts as online through PSN.

This is a big difference, and what is required for split-screen online co-op with other folks.

And it was dependent on a Sony update, hence why it wasn't in when the game shipped.

Thanks,

The Resistance 2 patch will be hitting consoles on March 26th, so we can expect an update today or tomorrow, but what else might this rumored new firmware bring? Guess we'll have to wait and see. Keep on eye out for more info as it comes in.
