Sony Planning To Announce More First Party Games???

If you thought Killzone 3, Resistance 3, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, inFamous 2, and Gran Turismo 5 were a lot of first party exclusives, apparently you haven’t seen everything.  I know it’s hard to believe, but according to PlayStation LifeStyle Sony has more goodies just around the corner.  The site spoke with Andrew House, CEO and CFO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, who said the following:

We’ve heard from Resistance 3 and Ratchet and Clank All 4 One, along side games such as inFamous 2, Sorcery, GT5, Killzone 3, and a few more we’ve yet to share… this is going to be a stellar year for PlayStation.

We all expect Sony to announce a couple of big games at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, but considering what the company has already announced, I’m quite impressed already.  What do you all think of the titles Sony has announced this year?  We got PlayStation Plus, which I’ve been kind of disappointed with, and then there’s Move, which appears a little too close to what the Wii is doing for my comfort, but in terms of software Sony has been kicking everyone else’s butts.  I don’t think there’s a more impressive list of first party software out there.  Sure Nintendo has released a very impressive list of 3DS titles, and Wii titles, but I still sway more towards Sony’s PS3 announcements.  Add these games to titles like The Last Guardian, and I think you can see where I’m coming from.  I don’t really know what to say about Microsoft’s first party announcements.  We know about games for this year, but next year I’m not entirely sure what they have planned.  I don’t think anyone does at this point.

So what do you think of these first party announcements?  What about Nintendo and Microsoft’s first party announcements.  Notice how I keep saying first party, because these are all titles that will never go exclusive, and we all know that third party exclusives come and go so first party titles are more important now then ever before.  So as I said, what do you think of all these games, and what about Sony’s competition?

  1. It sure seems like Sony’s content is stronger next year, I’m not sure what Microsoft has planned for next year. I don’t usually look far ahead. Although I’m incline to say that Microsoft’s lineup from September to December looks the more solid to me. Halo Reach, Gears 3 and Fable III are 3 possible triple A titles. There’s also tons of multiplatform games that I can’t wait to get my hands-on like Spidey, NHL 11, Black Ops and perhaps Ghost Recon and I’m sure theres one or two that I’m forgetting here. Then you add Kinect and in my mind, the 360’s lineup is the best this holiday season. Then again, I’ve been wrong before. Move could surprise us all who the hell knows.

    1. I’m not too sure where I stand with the Move. From what we tried at E3, it feels a lot like a me too product. Microsoft’s line-up for this year is certainly strong. Halo alone will likely outsell all other AAA software from the hardcore crowd, except maybe Call of Duty: Black Ops. Never thought I would say that. I’m also looking forward to Fable III. We should write up an article showcasing the big holiday releases for each major player. Problem is, I can’t even think of all the games from the top of my head lol.

  2. All of the 3 big Microsoft exclusives are coming out at the same time of the year? Man… That’s domination right there! But what will they have for the next few years?

    As for Sony’s exclusives, I agree with what Jarrod said: “I still sway more towards Sony’s PS3 announcements.”

    The main reason why I’m happy to own a PS3 is because of their diverse list of exclusives. They’re not afraid to try new things, MAG and Heavy Rain for exemple.

    Oh, but about the fall release. You guys can’t forget about Gran Turismo 5! I mean, when a “demo” game (GT5: Prologue) sells almost 4million world wide, what do you expect the real deal will do?

  3. You might laugh at me, and I won’t hate you for it, but I’m actually really looking forward to GT5’s kart racer element. I thought I would love the create-a-track mode, but I know I won’t have much time to mess around with it. I’ve been a little burnt by all the car racers I’ve been playing as of late for whatever reason. That said, something just popped out at me when I saw the kart racer section within GT5. It sure looks like the 217 years of development time was put to good use.
