Sony's E3 Software List Revealed
Considering the upcoming exclusive lineup for the PlayStation 3, one would hope that Sony might steal the show at E3 this year. Well, based on the confirmed list of software presentations, our hopes are high. Very high.
The list of confirmed E3 Sony titles has popped up at TheBitBag, and as you can see, most all of the hotly anticipated PS3 and PSP titles are included (sans Gran Turismo 5, unfortunately). We already know that God of War III will play a major role in Sony's presentations, and it's a no-brainer that inFamous (scheduled for a May 26 release, one week before the show) will also be in attendance. However, we're really liking the fact that Heavy Rain and White Knight Chronicles will make their presences felt; we haven't heard much of anything about the former in 2009, and we just got confirmation that the latter is indeed coming to North America. We can't wait to see and hear more about both. Then you've got MotorStorm: Arctic Edge and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 for the PSP fans, MAG (rapidly gaining attention these days), the recently announced Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, the guaranteed awesomeness of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and a look at the impending zaniness of Fat Princess. It should be an absolutely fantastic show!
It's just a little worrisome that GT5 isn't on the list. With all these rumors about how it might actually show up this year, this absence from E3 all but erases that possibility from our minds. Oh well.
