Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. previewed a huge software line up for its PlayStation platforms at a media event in San Diego today.
Jack Tretton, president and chief executive officer of Sony Computer Entertainment America, said, "More than half of the games we showed during our media event are available only on our systems. This fiscal, from SCEA alone, users can expect more than 15 exclusive games and services for PS3, and another nine for PSP. This doesn't even take into account the wide variety of titles and game packs we have coming through the PlayStation Network."
First-party PS3 titles unveiled and demonstrated included: Warhawk, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, SOCOM: Confrontation, Heavenly Sword, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Folklore, The Eye of Judgement, SingStar and the much-discussed LittleBigPlanet. SCEA was pleased to also give event attendees access to key third-party titles from Midway, 2KGames, Capcom, Tecmo, Sierra Entertainment SEGA and Konami.
Sixteen exclusive titles for PSP from first and third parties were also unveiled at the event, including Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow, God of War: Chains of Olympus and SOCOM:U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike.
Attendees got their first hands-on experience with the PlayStation Network service Home, a 3D avatar-based community PlayStation Network games highlighted at the event included PAIN and Calling All Cars.
Industry analyst reports predict an up-cycle for SCEA as they bring more next-generation content to the marketplace, particularly for PS3.
