Revised List of Forthcoming PS3 Games |

IGN has updated their list of PS3 games due out in North America. January is a quiet month with just flOw (Jan 15th) and Sonic The Hedgehog (Jan 30th) due for release. February picks up a bit with Calling All Cars (Feb 5th), F.E.A.R. (Feb 13th), Bladestorm (Feb 14th), Fatal Inertia (Feb 14th), Virtua Fighter 5 (Feb 20th), The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Feb 26th) and MotorStorm (Feb 27th) all due out next month.

No fewer than 19 games are scheduled for release during March in North America while European gamers should (we had better!) be preparing to get our hands on the PS3. These are Major League Baseball (March 5th), Medal of Honor: Airborne (March 6th), GRAW2 (March 6th), Def Jam: Icon (March 6th), College Hoops 2K7 (March 6th), Heavenly Sword (March 6th), Eye of Judgment (March 6th), SingStar (March 6th), Formula 1: Championship Edition (March 6th) NBA Street Homecourt (March 6th), Splinter Cell Double Agent (March 13th), Armoured Core 4 (March 20th), Virtua Tennis 3 (March 20th), The Godfather (March 20th), Rainbow Six: Vegas (March 20th), Burnout 5 (March 27th), Haze (March 30th), Coded Arms Assault (March 30th) and Golden Axe (March 30th).

Now despite IGN’s weird UK release date list, which makes no sense to me at all, I’m going to guess two things. Firstly the PS3 will launch in Europe on March 9th. Why? Because in order for Sony to meet their 6m worldwide PS3s shipped target by the end of March, it has to be on shelves pretty early during March in order to give them more time to increase supply to all regions during that month. Secondly there are a lot of titles due for release on March 6th (a Tuesday) so that’s why I think the PS3 will be released on March 9th (a Friday) in Europe with a wide selection of titles alongside it.

This is nothing more than a wild guess based on my own insane logic but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m right.

Revised List of Forthcoming PS3 Games

  • Tom

    Wow, March is going to be busy. Makes a change from the usually months and months of nothing-ness.

  • The new HD Eye Toy should be unveiled and released before then as-well. Hopefully it will be out alongside the PS3 in Europe.

  • MotorStorm in February? Woo hoo!

    And these are games I want:

    MotorStorm (of course)
    Calling All Cars
    GRAW 2
    Heavenly Sword
    Burnout 5

  • All I want to know is when’s Devil May Cry 4 going to be released.

  • Alot of those seem Placeholder to me. But if they’re actual Publisher dates, then thats a good list.

    Heavenly Sword

    And that’ll be it for me for a while.

  • Haha, our launch will ROCK!!

    Motorstorm, Graw and Heavenly Sword will be my games, I think, if I can afford it ^^

  • Pc

    March will be a great month for PS3 owners !!!! April should be also 🙂

  • Darrin

    That’s an awesome lineup. Most of those will probably get delayed, but still, PS3 should get a really strong variety of content in these next few months. IGN’s release dates change wildly: many of those games were recently listed as Q3 releases.

    Yes, the Europeans definitely get a nicer launch. Great game selection, hardware availability, and hopefully, all the big kinks and problems should be worked out by then.

  • March is going to be a great month! And it’s my birthday March 3rd 🙂

  • too bad january is so slow! i might rent sonic the hedgehog, despite all the negative reviews… feb/mar are looking good, though, if these dates are correct.

  • Thomas

    nice list – thx

  • matt

    I wouldn’t get my hope up about Sonic. It really sucked on 360. It was unplayable for a lot of reasons.

    February should be a good month and March is looking nice. If even half of these games are released in those two months a lot of PS3 owners will be much happier. If MotorStorm makes it that should be enough to last a good month or two.
