The PS3 Had 12 Games At Launch. Here's What They Looked Like.

Kotaku - We finally saw the actual PlayStation 4 during Sony's E3 press conference on Monday, and we got sneak peaks at the console's upcoming games, some of which will be launch titles. But how do those games compare with the PS3's launch titles? Let's take a look.

The story is too old to be commented.

OhReginald1201d ago

for me it was 60gb and Resistance and the untold legends game.

GamingAngelGabriel1201d ago

I had the first Untold Legends on PSP. It was mindblowing at the time.

xBigxBossx1201d ago

RIP to my phat ps3..
But we all know MGS4 is why drove original ps3 sales

liorishot1201d ago

i had the 60gb with virtua tennis 3 and fight night round 3 and vegas rainbow six

Fluke_Skywalker1201d ago

I got the 60gb with Resistance FOM and MotorStorm.

MysticStrummer1201d ago

Phat 60 with R:FoM and Oblivion. It was a few months after launch but I waited on Oblivion to release. Good times.

infamous-butcher1201d ago

60gb with formula 1 ce and RFOM.
still playing mgs3 online when the ps3 came out.

guitarded771201d ago

I waited and got the 80GB MGS4 bundle and GTA4.

But I already pre-ordered PS4 with Killzone Shadow Fall and Battlefield 4. Still gonna get one or two more, but waiting for the final launch list to decide.

Ju1201d ago

I liked that Untold Legends game. I think I still have it somewhere. Almost tempted to play me some "retro" PS3 games. LOL. Sold all Resistance games in the hope to get me a collectors bundle later - but haven't gotten it yet.

pixelsword1201d ago

60 + Resistance (got it early)

I think Motorstorm was next.

Then Warhawk.

Then I forget.

specialguest1201d ago

I got my 60 gig during the launch month and R:FOM was my first title. Playing a FPS on the sixaxis was something I had to work on adapting to since I came from PC gaming back then and was used to a k/m.

On another note, remember the Tekken 6 E3 2005 trailer? A lot of us got super hyped and thought it could possibly be real gameplay since the PS3 was a powerful piece of hardware during '05 with the cutting-edge CELL. So the question is, can we expect to see the next Tekken look like this trailer on the PS4?

nix1201d ago

i bought 60gb a year after the launch and the two games i picked up were Heavenly Sword and Uncharted 1.

i had the most fabulous long weekend ever!

ShinMaster1201d ago

gives me so much to look forward to with PS4.

MikEyG1201d ago

@xBigxBoss,Yup!!!,I remember waitin like a year and a half for the ps3 after launch but as soon as that MGS4 bundle came out I was on it.

hakis861200d ago

I actually got lucky and won my 40GB PS3 about a year after launch! :)

I'm having trouble remembering which games I bought first.. But I think it was some of the following: Uncharted 1, R:FoM, Motorstorm..and downloaded GT HD Concept :) Looked so amazing!

DrJones1200d ago

I got the 60gb with Motorstorm.

abzdine1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

I only bought virtua tennis 3 and motorstorm a few weeks later.
now PS4 line-up is amazing! So many great games to be getting! I bought also a big Ben usb peripheral to use my PS2 controllers.

Greatness awaits

BISHOP-BRASIL1200d ago

You guys were luck! As I waited 'till January 2007 to get my 60GB and Brazil have some crazy limitations with imports, also back in the day the USD was worth like 3.5 BRL. This meant finding games here was considerably hard, I myself could only find some 3 crap launch games, everything else was taken... I picked the awful Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, but luckly I got to trade it for MotorStorm with a friend who really don't enjoy racing games. It was past some good 3 months 'till I got my second game.

Also, as the exchange rate was a lot more unfavorable and the only PS3s here were imports bought somewhere else at costumer price, we had seen some crazy pricing, like R$8000 (almost 2300 dollars by that time) for the console in xmas 2006. To give you guys an idea I got a console, an extra controller and a game for R$4500 (almost 1300 dollars in 2007) in what was considered a good deal.

Thankfully, this time around Jack Tretton himself said Sony will be trying to get a PS4 release in here for less than R$1000 (about 550 dollars in today's exchange rate), cheaper than both PS3 (R$1099 for 250GB super slim, which is made here) and Vita (R$1399 for a wifi only version with no card at all, made in China) current official prices here, so it seens we'll get a more realistical price globally despite no PS4 fabrication here (yet).

Even considering the initial difficult to find games and the crazy prices practiced in Brazil (for everything, really), it was worth every minute, I even learned some Linux back in the day and used the PS3 as my main PC for almost a year.

RFOM <3 what a launch game.
hope one of m favorites games KILLZONE can fulfill that.. i bet it will.. :)

TKCMuzzer1201d ago

Agree, RFOM was great, it has a great atmosphere to it. I wish they had done a trophy patch for it.

hakis861200d ago

@TKCMuzzer: Let's hope for a good reboot on the PS4 someday!

ssj271200d ago

@hakis86

well if they do a R4 it does need to be like RFOM Multiplayer, R2 coop, and the Campaign ned to be like RFOM with the R3 mix..

idk about a reboot .. Resistance has a lot more to give in term of history I ill love if it goes into a more modern era some crazy twist.. but that era needs to ends R3 end it well..

3-4-51201d ago

COD 3 was awesome....back before it became "hardcore" lol

raiden-491201d ago

Mine was a 60gb R.I.P for €649
With two controllers and two games the first was
Ginja days of the blade =. =; or as my friends call it Giant enemy crab and Mortorstorm.

InTheLab1201d ago

Just tried to replay that game...and I ejected the disc and crushed it.

Curious how it's been in my library since launch but NOW I finally dispose of it.

PirateThom1201d ago

60GB
Resistance
Extra Controller

Downloaded Gran Turismo HD Concept and went all out.

NBT911200d ago

That's what I did, except Motorstorm instead of Resistance. The good thing about the UK delay was having a few more choices in launch. (but don't do it again Sony!)

I think I got Super Rub A Dub as well. Remember that? The tech demo with like a million realistic ducks that turned out to be a simple arcade title?

I got Oblivion too, but I can't remember if it was a launch game. I don' think it was, think it was one of the first big PS3 releases from launch though.

scofios1201d ago

for me it was 60gb.
And raibow six vegas 1
Played the shit out of grand tourismo demo .

2 weeks later i bought genji wich was desapointing compared with the ps2 Genji

delicia1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

I would like to see an Infamous x Second Son comparison (the first one x the third one).

Also,
60gb with Resistance, afterwards Lair aaaand I cannot remember the other one.

bigrob9041201d ago

i had

60GB
ridge racer 7
Fight night round 3

riikotta1201d ago

I bet the rum was to forget how much you spent!! I bought my 6o gig with Virtua Fighter 5 (not launch day).

Uzesgelen_Goo1201d ago

60GB launch with RFOM & Ridge Racer & Motorstorm. Warhawk

Darrius Cole1201d ago

Not release day in November 2006, but right after the price cut in November 2007.

80GB, Backward Compatible, Fat, PS3
MotorStorm came with the PS3.
Heavenly Sword
Virtua Fighter 5

FamilyGuy1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

I waited a year (had to)

Ended up with the 80Gb MotorStorm Bundle
(Still had partial b/c, card readers and 4 usb slots)
Heavenly Sword
Ratchet and Clank
and a mail in for 5 free blu-ray movies.

It was awesome, MotorStorm looked amazing and I bought MGS4 shortly after which was another eye-gasmic experience.

Loved my PS3, web browser, saving movie files directly to the system down download site. It was only doing everything way back in 08 :)

Getting PS4 Day 1 though.

NBT911200d ago

Oh yeah I got a free copy of "Casino Royale" on Blu Ray when it was still a new film. Think it was for being one of the first 500,000 to register for PSN in the UK,

irepbtown1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

I too waited, 80GB PS3; Battlefield Bad Company, accessory pack (HDMI cable, another controller etc) and soon after I got MGS4 and GTA IV.

This time, the PS4 will be mine at launch (hopefully). Haven't ordered a game yet, Watchdogs is the top of my list though.

PS: My PS3 + accessory + BF:BC cost £400 (got 3 year guarantee too), and MGS4/GTA IV cost £40 each.

sackboyhappy1201d ago

resistance and motorstorm for me, resistance was a realy good multiplayer at the time as well :)

One4U1201d ago

OMG Resistance FOM , DAMN THE MEMORIES !

jmc88881200d ago

RFOM was a blast when people were playing the hell out of it. So much fun. My PS3 basically was a RFOM console the first few months.

Already had some of the other games on the 360.

But RFOM was amazing. The only downside was the bland and reduced color set, something I easily overlooked.

vigilante_man1201d ago

It was MGS4 that did it for me. I walked into the big gaming in the city centre and saw the MGS4 15-minute demo from Tokyo Games Show. Had never seen anything that amazing before.

Also RFOM had awesome atmosphere to it and a very harsh check point system. Very frustrating but rewarding once completed!

Loved Motorstorm too - also got Ridge Racer on day one of purchase.

jmc88881200d ago

Sometimes I would just hide in a box...just because.

moparful991201d ago

Launch 60gig with motorstorm, resistance and a few months later I bought warhawk and barely played anything but for the next year... Some of my fondest gaming memories.. Love my PS3!

TOSgamer1201d ago

They need to make a new Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

kenshiro1001200d ago

I got the PS3 60gb with Resistance and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I really liked Sigma. v.v

sinjonezp1200d ago

For me it was the metal gear bundle with the phat ps3 that was backwards compatible.she finally died a month ago.

zeddy1200d ago

i remember resistance fondly.

TheFamous11200d ago

Wasn't it COD2? Damn I kinda miss WW2 games lol and back then we were like "Enough with World War 2 games!!" and then we got bombarded with modern/near future military shooters.

NBT911200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Haha, right? But yeah it was COD3. COD3 came out during the same week.
EDIT - COD2 might have been a 360 launch game. I remember it having really impressive smoke for the time lol

DivineAssault 1201d ago

Nx gen is a decent enough leap imo.. I can immediately tell the differences in textures & resolution..

cyhm31121201d ago

it is only PS4 you are talking about. Not the other console

malokevi1201d ago

I was very impressed with what I saw at E3. From both the Xbox One and the PS4.

It can only get better. Not to mention that it will generally look better on a nice wide screen HDTV.

Lucid_Lethality1201d ago

The Xbox One games weren't running on an Xbox One, they were running on a VERY beefy PC.

Too lazy to find a link, google is your friend.

Halochampian1200d ago

@Lucis_Lethality

I'm surprised no one has corrected you. Dev kits cost a lot of money and are very limited. Most dev teams rather have those dev kits back at the studio continuing to be used for development.

Therefor they use beefy machines to run a emulated xbox one.

malokevi1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

I dont care if the games were running on a microwave oven. As long as it is representative of what we will see in the final product, I'm happy.

jmc88881200d ago

They weren't representative.

As much as running Zelda beefed up on a two linked together PS4's is representative of a Wii U game.

Those PC's had 250-500 percent more raw power than what the Xbox one will have.

Well 500 percent of a 360 is almost this gen.

So no, the xbox one will not give you graphics like that.

malokevi1200d ago

The only advantage of running the software on a high-end PC like that would be to ensure things ran perfectly smooth & prevent crashing. I see absolutely no reason to believe that game wont run on the Xbox One.

After all, these games are being developed specifically around the XB1's architecture...

EazyC1201d ago

Jeebus...i can't believe I was amazed by Resistance's visuals when it was released, looks so dated now, but i guess the flip side is that upcoming games look truly breathtaking.

OhReginald1201d ago

resistance 1 looks a lot better than what those screens show. and a TON better in motion.

madpuppy1201d ago

ironically, I still throw it in every once in a while and play multiplayer.

Fluke_Skywalker1201d ago

And it makes you think, how amazing will PS4 games look in a few years time? I can't wait :)

ginsunuva1201d ago

Resistance still looks good. No game has yet captured its atmosphere and art style.

johnsonbat1201d ago

60GB
Resistance
Motorstorm
2 controllers and a 5 year warranty which came in handy twice.

Salooh1201d ago

Same experience here. Those two games are like legends or something in its time. They were sooo cool. Had a great new experience with them :) ..

TheFamous11200d ago

Damn I totally forgot about Motorstorm
