PlayStation 3 launch window titles announced


Sony has revealed PlayStation 3's launch window catalogue, implying that the designated titles will be gradually released during the holiday season. In other words, not all 21 games will be available on November 17.

The list includes three first-party titles, leaving eighteen third-party offerings, fourteen of which are multiplatform releases. The popular genres are covered, but the lineup is mostly derivative and padded by ports of older games. Still, PlayStation 2's starting roster was arguably weaker -- and look where that console has ended up.

SCEA launch titles (priced at $59.99 according to Gamespot):

  • Resistance: Fall of Man
  • NBA 07 (1080p)
  • Genji: Days of the Blade
Third-party titles:
  • Blazing Angels (Ubisoft) (multiplatform)
  • Call of Duty 3 (Activision) (multiplatform)
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Bethesda) (multiplatform)
  • F.E.A.R. (Vivendi) (multiplatform)
  • Fight Night Round 3 (EA) (multiplatform)
  • Full Auto 2 (Sega)
  • Madden NFL 07 (EA) (multiplatform)
  • Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (Activision) (multiplatform)
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire (Namco Bandai)
  • NBA 2K7 (2K Sports) (multiplatform)
  • Need For Speed Carbon (EA) (multiplatform)
  • NHL 2K7 (2K Sports) (multiplatform)
  • Rainbow Six Vegas (Ubisoft) (multiplatform)
  • Ridge Racer 7 (Namco Bandai)
  • Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega) (multiplatform)
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 (EA) (multiplatform)
  • Tony Hawk's Project 8 (Activision) (multiplatform)
  • Untold Legends Dark Kingdom (SOE)
Sony also notes: "Downloadable first party games will cost less than $15 at launch." Does that mean Blast Factor will hit that $5 sweet spot?
