Sony has announced Q2 titles (April through June) for the PlayStation platforms. Most of these we already knew about through other sources, but it’s still good to hear.
PS3 Blu-Ray Discs
- Spider-Man 3
- Ninja Gaiden® Sigma
- MLB 07 The ShowTM
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
- The Darkness®
- The Bigs
- TRANSFORMERS: The Game
PlayStation Network Downloadable Titles
- Calling All CarsTM
- Championship SprintTM
- Gauntlet IITM
- RampageTM World Tour
- Super Puzzle FighterTM II HD Remix
While many of these games are cross-platform, the PS3 will actually getting first-rate versions of many with exclusive features and content.
- Spider Man 3: The PS3 gets lots of exclusive content including a completely exclusive controllable character, “The New Goblin”, controllable via the sixaxis tilt functionality.
- The Darkness: The developers behind this game, Starbreeze Studios, also developed the Xbox shooter, “The Chronicles Of Riddick”. Many thought that that title was actually a better Xbox shooter than Halo 2. I can’t wait to see how this title turns out. Also, the developers have spoken very highly of the PS3 which suggests that we will actually get a high quality version (possibly the best) rather than a dumbed down port.
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma: This is a rather extensive remake of an extremely highly rated Xbox exclusive. It sounds like they are really delivering a dramatically improved remake that takes full advantage of the PS3 and not just giving us a quick port.
Anyway, great news! And the PS2 lineup looks pretty good as well (can’t wait for Manhunt 2).
BTW, where are Unisoft’s Tom Clancy games: Rainbow Six and GRAW 2? I thought those were supposed to be released in May-June? Also, why aren’t Nucleus and Super Stardust HD listed as PlayStation Network releases? I guess this isn’t 100% complete.
