Thanks to Knorrie at official forum, posted today.
While it was known it would get marketed heavily this goes into abit more detail.
Sony Computer Entertainment America will support Resistance: Fall of Man with a blockbuster multimillion dollar marketing campaign. This will include aggressive national television, print, online and viral advertising campaigns, full promotional support, dedicated point-of-purchase displays and merchandising support, broad-based public relations support, an immersive and interactive website and feature coverage in the Official PlayStation Magazine/Underground DVD.

Also, James Stevenson, a new addition to Insomniac is keeping a blog at the official page.
Here's a segment about lunch-time multiplayer matches:
...Obviously, the other fun part is getting to play games. Weve had lunch tests of multiplayer in order to get 40 people online and playing Resistance at the same time. This works out really well Insomniac brings in lunch for us, we scarf down the food and then wipe off our hands before picking up a PS3 controller and getting down to business. Im looking forward to more of these as we get closer to launch.
I was really impressed with the 40-player game of Meltdown (a temporary name Im told) that we got into. I had a chance to pick it up as both Hybrid and soldier, and the weapons that I played with were just fantastic. The game moves fast and before I knew it, the hour was over. The only downside was that pretty much everyone else has been playing the game for months so I cant say I was doing super-well, though I did manage to paint quite a few people with the Bullseye.
Its fun to be here on the inside, seeing the decisions get made and getting to see a lot of stuff come together before the games release. I cant wait to dive all the way into the single-player mode this week and really get my feet wet with this title....
