TGS 06: Sony tips PS3 Japan launch hand

When the PlayStation 3 goes on sale in Japan November 11, six games will definitely be available: Genji: Days of the Blade, Mah-Jong Fight Club Online, Mobile Suit Gundam: Target In Sight, Resistance: Fall of Man, Sega Golf Club featuring the Miyazato Family, and--wait for it--Ridge Racer 7. Sony also confirmed Armored Core 4 would arrive sometime in November.

In December, Sony has locked down a trio of games: F1 Championship (aka Formula One 06), Gran Turismo HD, and MotorStorm. Three more carry a general "winter 2006" release date in Japan: Need for Speed Carbon, Enchant Arm, and the railroad sim Railfan. Another pair will ship during "2006": Sonic the Hedgehog and Fatal Inertia, though the later is only "projected" to make that vague release window.

According to Sony, 2007 will see at least 12 more PS3 titles come to market across the Pacific. Virtua Fighter 5, Virtua Tennis 3, Heavenly Sword, Lair, Monster Kingdom: Unknown Realms, The Eye of Judgment, and Wangan Midnight will all arrive in the "spring," while Everybody's Golf 5 and Warhawk will land in the "summer." Other games confirmed for the year are Afrika (working title), Coded Arms: Assault, and the much-awaited Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Sony listed a sextet of several high-profile titles with the most nebulous release date of all, "TBD." Those included Shirokishi, fl0w (working title), Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, Devil May Cry 4, and Final Fantasy XIII. (Afrika, Armored Core 4, Final Fantasy XIII, Industry, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, MotorStorm, PS3, Railfan, Ridge Racer 7, Sonic the Hedgehog, Wangan Midnight, Warhawk)

Well that's one more...
...than you have on your 360 ;-)

You mean 170 more
If you are enforcing the truth, well the truth is 360 has more games in each genre than PS3 has in total.

They have been working on these games for years now, its just sad.

These are Japans releases. And seeing that sony isn't really caring about them right now I'd like to see what Sony has in store for the US for launch

That's all?

And the only thing really interesting would be Resistance, but that one will be wiped off the planet earth by COD3 (which looks better in graphics and only lacks the Aliens in a WWII setting... ALIENS?) and Gears of War.

That's not gonna sell much this Christmas guys compared to over a 100 titles available on 360. All 720p native ones like the PS3, only difference is that for the visual whores they're all upscaled to 1080p on 360. Well well... Real HD most supported on 360 who'd ever thought that.

Ummm, isn't COD3 supposed to come out for ps3 too. Yeah, I'm pretty sure thats what has been said. These are just the Japanese launch games, there are still North American launch and launch window games. And why do you have to make the GOW comparisons. THEY'RE NOT THE SAME GENRE! And 1080p tvs have built in upscaling, they don't need a 360 to do that. The ps3 will also have more games rendered in 1080p than the 360.

Even for Japan...
that is a Sad @ss list. There is no other way to look at this. We will see what the U.S. will get I hope the list is better than this.

Reading it again I can't help but see that from now until end of '07 Japan will have a whooping 20 games for the ps3.... Correct me if I'm wrong but that doesn't seem like a lot for a full year and 2 months. Seeing that it technically would of come out this spring
