PS3: Upcoming PS3 Games Releases

Hexus Gaming has posted a nice collection of upcoming games for the PS3. About time too, seeing as playing Motorstorm over and over again is getting tiring (and incidentally, where is the hotly anticipated two-player mode? Get with it Sony!).

Some of these aren't PS3 exclusives, but still. Killzone 3 costing 20m pounds to produce? WTF? This had better be good -you could practically make a Hollywood film for that.

Killzone 3: Estimated Street date - TBA

The third installment of the KillZone franchise is believed to be costing Guerilla games £20 million to develop. There are little details known about the game, but a trailer was released at GDC this year showing a mixture of on-foot and vehicle battles, plus destructible environments.

Sony's Phil Harrison has recently said, "With Killzone, the expectation internally and externally is very high - and I won't show it until it's going to exceed people's expectations. It will be next year before we show it again, but it's coming along very well. The teams are working very hard, they know exactly what they have to do and there's no doubt they will achieve it, but there's nothing to be served by something that doesn't satisfy my goals for the project. I can tell you, though, that some elements already exceed the trailer."

Metal Gear Solid 4- Guns of the Patriots: Estimated Street date - Q4 2007

The Metal Gear Solid series, is highly acclaimed worldwide. From infiltrating enemy compounds and man-made structures in MGS and MGS2, to the challenges of the jungle environment in MGS3, MGS4 brings a totally new concept and situation, resulting in the toughest Metal Gear infiltration mission ever devised. The game is set after the events of MGS2 and players will reprise the role of top secret agent Solid Snake with appearances by characters throughout the MGS series. With the addition of online capability, MGS4 is a leading product for "PS3" and will signal the dawn of a new gaming era for the MGS series.

FINAL FANTASY XIII and FINAL FANTASY Versus XIII: Estimated Street date - TBA

This eagerly anticipated title will apparently take full advantage of the PlayStation 3 system's advanced hardware, providing tangible, intuitive controls while delivering seamless transitions between real-time gameplay and stunning in-game cinematics. The latest in cutting-edge technology has been utilized in development of FINAL FANTASY XIII, thus making this newest addition to the FINAL FANTASY series worthy of the title "next generation."

Not a merely a sequel, but a wholly independent story unfolding in a different world with different characters, Final Fantasy Versus XIII will appear alongside FINAL FANTASY XIII on the PlayStation 3 system.

Gran Turismo 5: Estimated Street date: 2008

Gran Turismo 5 is currently under development for the Playstation 3. It is claimed that the game will output at 1080p and run at 60fps.

The game will also feature Ferrari cars for the first time in a Gran Turismo game. There may also be motorbikes featured in the game, probably similar to those found in one of Polyphony's earlier game Tourist Trophy. The game is expected to feature even more vehicles than the 700 found in the earlier Gran Turismo 4 game for the PlayStation 2. The Blu-Ray disk will help to make the game even more diverse than it already is.

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction: Estimated Street date - Autumn 2007

It will also be more of a platform game because Insomniac wanted to stop the series from becoming the more weapon based combat game it had become in UYA and Deadlocked.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.
