GamePro: Sony's Weapons: 9 Promising New Games for PS3 and PSP

In response to this recent surge in new PlayStation 3 owners, and in anticipation of what will no doubt be a steady rate of growth for the platform (particularly if it maintains an average of 100,000 units sold each week throughout the Holiday season) GamePro takes a look at the games that Sony is publishing itself to boost the overall PlayStation brand further. In this hands-on report with nine different first-party titles, they talk to producer Petro Piaseckyj about Quantic Dream's ambitious Heavy Rain, and they look at the novel EyePet virtual toy, which features one of the most inventive uses for the EyeToy. They also take a look at some PS3 favorites that are making their way to the PSP very soon.

PS3 Exclusives are the best.

sinncross3275d ago

I'm really excited for 2010. Some great PSP and PS3 games coming.

But I want to get my hands on GT5 and GoW3; those games are really going to get the heart pumping with everything else going for overkill lol.

Goods times coming!

Oldsnake0073275d ago

No GoW3 on this list = fail !

instead got well known and some already released titles.

Xbox Avatars Shoe3275d ago

They'll probably all be AAA just like every other PS3 exclusive (except for HAZE and Lair)

Well, back to Uncharted 2 :D

Sarick3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

When I see 9 new games I'm looking for PS3 games not PSP. All they need to do is say 6 PSP games and 3 PS3 games. It just annoys me when handhelds titles are used to make a console list appear expanded.

Despite being able to download PSP titles over the PS3 it doesn't mean it's in the same category.

What's the definition of "secret"? Where are GT5 and GoW3 on this list?

zeeshan3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

This article has got to be a joke right? Seriously? There is a buttload of AAA exclusives coming to PS3 and they mentioned like only a couple of them. WTF?

sikbeta3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

"PS3 Exclusives are the best.
Except for Haze"

You are SO right lol

But No Console is perfect:

Haze = Horrible
Too Human = Horrible
Dead Space: Extraction = Hardcore


Afirmitive3275d ago

@ gamerdude11
God of War Grand Turismo has been on a playstation console before. So it's not new now, is it? Heavy Rain for the win!

bnaked3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

Try listing 10 360 exclusives bots. (PC/360 games are not exclusive.

thedisagreefairy3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

happy halloween guys

thedisagreefairy3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

did u get down to 4 bubbles when u had like 9 a few days ago

ill hook u up with one since im positive u were attacked by some fanboys

K__L__U__T__C__H3275d ago

Well 360 or pc, you still can't play all the great games they have next year on your ps3. And you know you want to, don't deny it.

Saaking3275d ago

Yea, and you can't play PS3 exclusives on neither PC OR Failbox. I can play the 360's "exclusives" on my PC. See the difference?

The XBOT3275d ago

its cheaper than a PC GPU, games can be run without tweaking or installing or downloading the new DIRECTX, or physx, or some weird dll. It just works. It has a good controller, great online feature and tons of games. It is always modifiable and linux and homebrew already run on it, unline the new slim.

K__L__U__T__C__H3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

See i knew you wanted to play the pc/360 exclusives. The difference between me and you is i could care less about all the ps3 exclusives, and if that ever changes, i'll go buy me a ps3. Anyways saaking i'm betting you don't have a ps3 or any other game system, because if you did you wouldn't be on here 24/7. So you don't need to be given your opinions if your not playing any games.

DaChinPin3275d ago

I see... So the 360 can run Linux? But it can only do it when it's modded, right? But if so, isn't that illegal and can get your console banned off Live?

54percent3275d ago

More games for the PS3? omg make it stop!!! I just got a 54.2% of chances to get one exclusive!

WildArmed3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

Honestly I would have gone with:
Heavy Rain
White Knight Chorn 1 n 2
DC/marvel MMO
L.A. Noire?
FFXIII versus

assuming if we are talking about new IPs.. hence 'new' games for ps3.

otherwise bombshells liek GoW3 n GT5 can be duly noted

thedisagreefairy3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

do not post in the open zone guys.

especially if its positive about all systems.

i already racked up a bunch of disagrees and is probably going to be bubble raped.

but on topic: i am really excited about these games especially HEAVY RAIN!!! that and god of war 3 are my most anticipated games next year

BLuKhaos3275d ago

Who even goes to the open zone anyways?

thedisagreefairy3275d ago

maybe u shouldnt cuz u went from a 9 to 4..well now 5

i noticed alot of ppl are losing bubbles lately who used to have alot...

maybe there is a conspiracy to all this


Sheikh Yerbouti3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

and I don't think any of these are certain weapons, maybe Heavy Rain...maybe. I want to see something more hardcore than PSN and PSP games.

Maybe I'm just spoiled by all the other great exclusives?

One thing for sure, I REALLY think Sony needs to get WKC out the door in the West sometime in Jan./Feb. before the March release of GOW3 and GT5... those games are all different genre's and will have different appeal, but I think the release of GOW3 and GT5 will totally eclipse WKC's release if it comes too close to them, and that's not even including big Multiplat. releases like Dante's Inferno, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Bioshock 2, etc. in Q1 2010... good luck with WKC Sony.

I'm not sure why GamePro chose these particular games as "Secret Weapons", because I think most of these games will have somewhat of a "niche" appeal, but I know for sure I'm getting Heavy Rain. It's good to see Sony has showed the PSP more support with these games listed and more 3rd party support for the PSP lately.
