The PS3 Games Of Summer 2007

PS3 owners weren't as overcome with software as they thought they'd be this past spring, but the summer is a totally different story. With a number of high-profile and potentially excellent videogames headed our way over the next few months, the awaited "must own" PlayStation 3 era may finally be upon us. Highlighted below are most of the season's biggest titles, so be sure to look for them at your local retailer between the dual-21sts of June and September.

The story is too old to be commented.

This summer,and winter looks to be promising for the PS3, and all three systems really. Ninja Gaiden is a must cop, and so is Heavenly Sword, I am really looking foward to Uncharted though.

Can anyone tell me when that one is going to drop, I can't remember the date, or is it still to be anounced?

Can't wait to play these games, When Ninja Gaiden drops, is when I will actually purchase my firt next gen (this gen) system.

I know I'm late, but they was just nothing for me to play that I really liked to justify this purchase. Come July that will all change.

2007 Chrismas and early 2008 = PS3 Dominating

the_round_peg4166d ago (Edited 4166d ago )

considering Halo 3, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Ace Combat 6, Too Human and more will all be coming out for Xbox 360 as exclusives during the same time period.

The console war will be intense, that's for sure.

TriggerHippie4166d ago

I agree that the PS3 won't dominate, but it will definitely hold it's own considering the exclusives it has on the way also.

unsunghero284166d ago

Most of those come out August or later...

And I still don't see the PS3 dominating in the face of the Wii and 360's also awesome upcoming lineups. Not unless they got a pricedrop on that thing, and fast.

Mr_Kuwabara4166d ago

As long as it has original and innovative game as its former predecessors, that's all that matters.

amerz4166d ago

It has two system sellers and Metroid.

Exclusives (Haze, Bioshock and UT3? are timed) with potential to sell systems:

PS3: Socom, HS, Uncharted, R&C5, MGS4, Tekken 6, Singstar, Warhawk, LittleBigPlanet, GT5: Prologue, Haze, UT3
Possibly 2007: Killzone 2, The Agency


360: Halo 3, PGR4, Bioshock (also on PC though), Mass Effect, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon
Possibly 2007: Too Human

It'll be a clean sweep for PS3 if its price drops. 360 is really catering to the same crowd yet again, and to the wrong crowd (JPRGs on 360). There's something for everyone on PS3 this

And the two real consoles have GTA IV, Assassin's Creed etc as multiplatform between them.

Wii's as good as dead, just in time for the new Xmas fad.

However since this is Summer, yeah, there's not even a competition since barely any games are being released.

I know of ONE genre that PS3 severely lacks: Western RPGs, of which I am a big fan.

Xbox 360 has some very exclusive high-profile Western RPGs that I simply have to have: Mass Effect and Too Human. In addition, I can look forward to Jade Empire 2 and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3, which (more likely than not) will be Xbox 360 exclusives.

Currently, PS3 has no high-profile Western RPG exclusive.

The Western RPGs that are on PS3 (e.g., Oblivion and Fallout 3) are also available on Xbox 360. For Western RPG lovers, Xbox 360 is the console-of-choice over PS3.

Can you name any really good exclusive Western RPG on PS3 that Xbox 360 doesn't and won't have?

It comes down to the games I like and want to play, and the games I love the best are Western RPGs. PS3 doesn't have any good exclusive one.

Of course, your taste is different from mine, but I know there are many people out there who are big fans of Western RPGs. For them, PS3 does NOT have "something for everyone."

UT3 is not timed exclusive http://utforums.epicgames.c...

I think timed exlusive do have some effect on a console. But the real deal is, what games do you prefer? Because you have that console, does it mean that you have to love the games on YOUR system?

I should write a paper about this, and should name it ''Do you play the (console) or the games ?''

unsunghero284165d ago

That's what people said about the DS, and look how that turned out.

That's what people said about Wii launch, and look how that turned out.

I personally doubt that when/if the PS3 has a price drop the Wii will lose its audience; quite the contrary, the Wii will be the hot, cheap Christmas item for not just hardcore gamers but casual gamers too.

amerz4165d ago (Edited 4165d ago )

Then PS3 does not have exclusive WRPGs. It does have Oblivion, Fallout 3, and more likely than not will have Kotor3 and Jade Empire 2 (I hope the latter never comes to fruition after the abomination of the first). That's if MS doesn't pay and publish them.

I always thought Too Human was an action game, along the lines of DMC, GoW and NG. I'm pretty sure it just has RPG elements.

And both consoles have something for everyone (I think), though usually they're of mediocre quality and multiplatform - i.e. JRPGs and Enchanted Arms. Where is 360's top of the line platformer (LittleBig)? Where is 360's party game (Singstar)? Where is its adventure game (Uncharted)? Where's the stealth action (MGS4)?

And if you're into WRPGs, you should stick to PC. Mass Effect like all bioware games will make its way there, same with Oblivion and Fallout 3. Only the action Too Human won't. Plus you'd get Diablo 3 if you're lucky.

As for 5.3, DS was being ripped apart by the PSP in monthly sales before DS Lite and Nintendogs etc dropped. Wii has staple Nintendo games which cater to no such audience, and has all the makings of a fad. It WILL die, and that'll most likely happen this holiday season when the difference is clear and it can no longer rely on fad status.

"And if you're into WRPGs, you should stick to PC."

Interesting that you would say that. I was a hardcore PC gamer until all the good single-player Western RPG left PC. So I was forced to switch over to Xbox, because that's where all the Western RPG makers have migrated.

PC still has RPGs -- but they are mostly MMO-rpg like World of Warcraft and the Lord of the Rings Online. And I hate those MMO craps with no story.

the_round_peg4165d ago (Edited 4165d ago )

Just so you guys know: before I bought my first console, which was a Xbox,) I had always detested console gaming. For me, console gaming (including the previous Playstation) had always been substandard compared to PC gaming - in the 1990s and early 2000s. Then, Microsoft started promoting Xbox at the expense of PC gaming, until more and more PC gamers are being forced to migrate to Xbox because so many good single-player games have left the PC.

After I started playing console games on Xbox and 360, I am now more willing to check out other consoles. If it's not for Xbox 360, I would have never even looked at PS3.

I still believe console gaming is substandard compared to PC gaming. But now I'm more willing to look at console gaming -- thanks to Xbox. I migrated from PC to Xbox. Then, after I've become comfortable with Xbox, I also became more willing to accept PS3. That would have never happened without Xbox.

Of course, this year, right when I'm starting to get comfortable with console gaming, PC gaming is starting to make a comeback.
