Sony shows off Resistance Burning Skies multiplayer

May is going to be the Vita's best month I can confidently predict. We've got Mortal Kombat coming out on the 4th to kick some heads and then at the end of the month, Nihilistic's Resistance launches replete with a great looking single player story and a fast-and-furious 8-way multiplayer mode.

That should give the handheld some serious gaming kudos as Vita owners reap the crap out of each other in a game that isn't Call of Duty. Hopefully, it'll be plain multiplayer with no silly Elite modes, lots of free or cheap DLC maps. It will use the Near mode to give experience multipliers, more on that and some other details in a new PS blog post.
