Rumor: New PSN titles for the summer and fall - Loco Roco, GT 5 Prologue, and more! [UPDATE- Sony responds]


French gaming mega-site PlayFrance has posted a list of Sony titles coming out in Europe between now and this October and they've revealed a bunch of unheard of titles. Not only do they confirm that both Loco Roco PSN and GT 5 Prologue are coming out in the next couple months, they also listed three previously unheard of games:
  • EyeToy Play Factory 1
  • EyeToy Play Factory 2
  • Chills
No other information was given about these, though they also confirmed Loco Roco 2 coming out for the PSP this year. So what's the possibility of this list being real? Well, PlayFrance is a very reputable site, but it seems a little iffy that Sony would announce 5 new PSN titles in such a way. Did somebody accidentally spill the beans on some of the 'surprises' that Jack Tretton hinted at a week ago? It's hard to tell at this point, but we've contacted Sony and are awaiting a response about the validity of this list.

Update:
When we asked Sony about the validity of the list, Dave Karraker had the following to say:

"I checked on this with our people in France. They have no idea where this information is from and say it is wholly inaccurate. The only games they have announced in that territory are Warhawk, Super Stardust and Snakeball."

So until we get more info, consider this rumor to debunked.

Update 2:
PlayFrance has taken the page down. Consider the rumor to be thoroughly debunked now.
