Between this morning's details on Call of Duty 5 and the announcement of this new flight sim, it would seem that World War II enthusiasts will be happy with the ever present abundance of era-based games. Eastern European publisher, 1C Company, is set to bring IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey to the PS3 (developed by Gaijin Entertainment) and to the PSP (Dynamicsystems).

The game lets players become a pilot fighting in five major historical aerial battles: Battle of Britain, Stalingrad, Berlin, Sicily and Korsun. An exact release date was not stated, but the game is currently slated for a 2008-2009 release window.
