The real reason is Resistance 3 didn't sell well at all, if it had we would have seen Resistance 4 for sure.

I think there is definatley some truth in that but if it had sold in huge numbers they would have made another. Sales of Resistance 3 really poor considering the amount of PS3s now sold:

Title | First Week Sales | PS3 Install Base at Release

Resistance 1 | 242,000 | 0 million (launch title)
Resistance 2 | 409,000 | 16 million
Resistance 3 | 274,000 | 53 million

Thats insanely poor first week sales and they didnt really improve, the game has also been heavily discounted since release. I hope they continue with Ratchet but I guess we will see.
