On January 18, LittleBigPlanet 2 — which is already looking like it will be one of the highest-scoring releases of the year — kicks off what could be a huge year for PlayStation 3 fans. Sony’s console has an unusually large lineup of exclusives scheduled for 2011, highlighted by one of the year’s biggest titles, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

Handheld gamers have high hopes for what could be a groundbreaking new device, Nintendo’s 3DS. And for the 360, there’s a little title called Gears of War 3.
