Resistance 2 Patch Available, Split Screen Fix Incoming

Insomniac has just released a new patch for the 8 player co-op shooter Resistance 2.  The patch is version 1.40 and it should be available by the time you read this.  What does it fix?  Lots of stuff, but the most important being the restoration of any character resets you may have had.  Some folks have reported issues with level progression and found their character data reset to level 1.  The good news is this patch should not only restore your previous character state, but tack on any progression you've gained since.  So your level 20 medic for co-op that should have been a level 40 medic will really be a level 40!  Very nice!

There's only a few fixes specific to co-op, mostly XP balancing.  There is some good news though - remember the complaints about the second player not being able to save their progress in co-op split screen?  Well it looks like a fix may be on the way for that as well.  According to Insomniac it was a problem with the PS3 firmware.  Firmware...really?  Whoever or whatever is to blame for the problem,  it sucked and needs to be fixed!  It's good to see the developer stepping up to the plate here.
