Insomniac confirms publisher has swapped alternate-history shooter in 24" TV package with MotorStorm: Apocalypse.
The PlayStation Vita wasn't the only new hardware Sony showed off at its 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference. Beyond the new portable, Sony debuted its newest 3D-enabled HDTV, saying that it would promote the device's release by bundling it with a copy of Insomniac Games' anticipated shooter Resistance 3.
Unfortunately, that's no longer the case. Confirming what had been indicated in an Amazon listing, Insomniac revealed through its Twitter feed that Resistance 3 had been swapped out for MotorStorm: Apocalypse. Aside from that change, the bundle remains the same, as it still includes a pair of 3D glasses and an HDMI cable for $500.
The PlayStation-branded 3D TV has been touted as perfect for gamers in college dorm rooms or other tight spaces. The display measures just 24", but it also supports split-screen play, where each side of the TV outputs its own 3D image. For those interested in the split-screen option, an additional set of 3D glasses can be purchased for $70.
Sony had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment on the rationale behind the change as of press time. Developed by Evolution Studios, MotorStorm: Apocalypse arrived to a strong critical reception for the PS3 in May. For more on that game, check out GameSpot's review.
