I've already played all three Resistance games, but I'll gladly take two free games over a beta.

Sony sure has some shitty business practices, but they don't skimp on giving away games.

Delayed beta test, which only gets you in like a week early? Have a $40 game.

Taco Bell Vita contest - LBP Vita delayed? We'll give you another game in it's place and then still give you LBP when it comes out.*

*I know this promotion was handled with much incompetence and more bad business practices, but for those that did win and chose LBP, it paid off.

Nice replacement! I'm going to keep it sealed since I have Non-GH Editions of Resistance 1 and Resistance 2. That's what's up!

Why are people calling it a replacement? Nothing is being replaced...

Never got around to playing the Resistance games, but I've always wanted to, and I've always heard good things, so I'm stoked! Thanks House Party & Playstation!

I was anxious to see what the Modnation Racers Beta was, but I am very happy with the Resistance dualpack. Fuck yeah!!!!! This program is just awesome

just looked in, i guess my poll results didn't count up so i'm minus 54 from the max amount- i'm sure it'll be fine right? as long as we have @ least 1002 points by the end, we still max out on all the rewards right?

I've been wanting to get these games, so I was stoked when I read the e-mail. And I'm happy that these will be in the red cases because I don't like the clear ones very much.

I get annoyed with the sport games, but even so, I'm super grateful for this program and I'm sad to see it go. But my PS3 collection practically doubled, so at least I got a lot out of it.

Why are people calling it a replacement? Nothing is being replaced...

I was just thinking the same thing. Heh.

That's not true at all. For example, if you were to charge $55 for MLB 12 on Amazon, you would make a profit of about $45, whereas trading it in gets you only $32. Plus, if you sell it, you get cash, while trading in only gets you Amazon credit. You can use this to calculate your profit after fees on Amazon.

But don't you need to have a normal UPC label to be able to sell? Because on the Help page it says

A UPC or EAN is required to list items in most Amazon categories, particularly if you are selling items from major brands.

Or does this just mean you need to be able to read it to sell it?

Still, you definitely make a good point, you could sell the Resistance Dual Pack on Amazon for around $35 and make more money than you would trading it in to a place like Best Buy(Who'll only give you around $20). Hell, MLB 12: The Show only trades in for $20 which is absolute BS. See?

However, how would you label it when it comes time to sell? It's in Like New condition, but it has a scratch on the back over the UPC?

Sweet! I never use betas anyway and you can't sell them either. I've been kicking myself for passing up resistance at a garage sale for $5, so now I am happy! I can keep my R2 CE sealed too! yeah!

The Resistance dual pack for free? Hell yeah! I never got around to playing those games and always wanted to.

The Resistance 2 DLC codes that come with the Dual Pack have an expiration date of March 31, 2012, so I hope they get the packs to us before then.

Find Resistance boring but I can sell it so that's great. I don't care about the worthless beta but I do love money.

I just got the e-mail and I'm pretty excited. Resistance huh? That was another series which I've never played that I wanted to get into.

Not sure if it's been posted but the double pack we're getting has:

Resistance: Fall of Man® PlayStation®3 game
Resistance® 2 PlayStation®3 game
Exclusive Resistance® 3 Capelli SRPA Multiplayer Skin
Resistance® 2 Aftermath Multiplayer Map Pack
Resistance® 2 Skin Bundle
Resistance® 2 Wraith Skin

My friend only recently got a PS3 and is a huge baseball fan, so I'll likely end up selling him both MLB and the Resistance dual pack. What's MSRP for the Resistance dual pack though? I'm not gonna sell him it for retail, don't worry lol.

I believe it's 39.99 at Gamestop right now.

Eh, I'll probably just sell it to him for $20. I feel like Resistance should be $5 by now and Resistance 2 is a good game, but it's getting quite old now too.

not that i'm complaining, but isn't houseparty breaking their rule of no M Rated games for the Ps3 Rewards by giving out resistance dual pack??

Would expect them to give Uncharted Dual Pack, but hey I've already played them so I'm happy with resistance.
