The announcement of Resistance: Burning Skies for the PlayStation Vita at Sony's Gamescom 2011 press conference today was immediately followed by a live demonstration of the game in action. This is that demonstration.

It's not looking too shabby. I like that the Vita makes up for the original PSP's lack of sufficient controls by adding virtual buttons to the game screen. You want buttons? We've got your buttons right here. We have buttons that don't even exist. Eat the buttons.
