Ps3 Lineup


The lineup that the PlayStation 3 has set for 2009 looks amazing, everyone knows this because the PS3 fans won’t shut up about it, myself included. But nobody wants to talk about how the PS3 does this every year and only delivers on just a little over half of the exclusive titles originally promised.

So you’re probably asking yourself “What’s the Don getting at?”. I’ll tell you exactly, this will be The Don’s interpretation of what will realistically transpire over the next 8 months and so on for the PS3’s library. This is The Don’s guideline to the A-list exclusives that the PS3 has in store.

It appears that over the past few years that the PS3 has been in existence, there is always this amazing lineup of games slated to come out during the course of the year. Then you hear rumors teeter back and forth about the release dates which end up being pure speculation in hindsight.

I’m starting to wonder if the games they “expect” to release in the Fall really have “see you next year” written on them. Remember when White Knight Chronicles, Killzone 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Gran Turismo 5 and Infamous were slated for 2008 and then pushed back to 2009? Now 2009 seems quite optimistic for some of these titles at this point. Yet, while a lot of those games missed the boat, you still had Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2 that all hit their mark without a hiccup.

Below, I will show a quick rundown as to what has transpired for some of the big titles for the PS3 in 2008.

# White Knight Chronicles
# Killzone 2
# Final Fantasy XIII
# Gran Turismo 5
# Infamous
# Metal gear Solid 4
# LittleBigPlanet
# Resistance 2

Now we’re in the 2nd Quarter of 2009, four out of those eight titles have been released (five: if you count White Knight Chronicles in Japan). What I will do now is list some of the more popular, exclusive PlayStation 3 games slated for this year that are being hyped up for the 2nd half of 2009. This is where The Don’s deciphering skills will reveal exactly which games have a more realistic shot at being released this year and which one’s will be a 2010 release.

# Final Fantasy XIII
# God of War III
# Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
# Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
# Heavy Rain
# Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
# MAG: Shadow War
# White Knight Chronicles

Now, even after sounding extremely optimistic on most of these titles, I’ve listed 8 exclusives and I think we’ll be lucky to see 5 of these games in 2009.

I’m already counting out God of war III and Final Fantasy XIII, now here’s the tricky part, and that’s naming the games that are most likely to be released this year. I’ll start this off with White Knight Chronicles, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

That’s three games I think we can safely say will come out in 2009. The three remaining games are Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Heavy Rain and MAG: Shadow War, now as a fan I am hoping it is Uncharted 2 and based on the developer for that game being Naughty Dog, I think I can safely say this game will come out this year.

The problem is, can we expect Heavy rain and/or MAG: Shadow War to join the 2009 lineup? Only time will tell.
