The end of the PS3 game draught is finally in sight.

by

“I love my PS3, but… goddamit, where the **** are the games?”

This is probably the most asked question by PS3 owners around the globe, and it’s also the question that stops many a person from dropping money on the PS3. $600 is a steep entree fee, especially when the competition is priced much more affordably. The least the PS3 could do is provide its userbase with compensation for the money spent. Unfortunately, it appears to even be failing dismally at that… honestly, when’s the last time you’ve seen a good game come out for the PS3? Motorstorm? Virtua Fighter 5? Those came out months ago!

Well, fortunately for us PS3 owners, developers are embracing us gamers with open arms this fall & winter, as all of the high-profile games we PS3 owners have been drooling at – Heavenly Sword, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank Future, Lair, Warhawk – are all finally releasing in the consumer marketplace. As I dream of the possibility of finally having a collection that justifies my expensive purchase, I imagine that the other millions of bored PS3 owners are doing the same.

Well, might as well not waste time posting the release dates for the games in question. (Note: These release dates come directly from IGN, so technically any of the release dates I have posted can be subject to change, although I highly doubt it. Also note that if I put an asterix next to a game, it means that it is exclusive)

  2. PSN Games Says:

    I have been greatly disappointed thus far. No cart racing games. Few RPGs. I am tired of looking to the future.
