In a press release sent today, Sony slated its upcoming games, namely Uncharted 2, Infamous, MAG, Heavy Rain, MLB 09, and God of War III, to arrive on PS3 "throughout the year." Though hardly a solid time line for PS3 owners to hold onto, it's the first of any such confirmation for the highly anticipated God of War III.
With little to no information since the game was announced last June, it was believed that Krato's third and final adventure might slip to 2010. If tentative dates are to believed, however, that no longer appears to be the case.
In the same statement, Sony announced a new TV ad for Killzone 2, which arrives in stores a week from the day. "The new ad was rendered entirely in-game," the company said, before adding, "We're very proud that our game engine technology has reached the point where we don't have to resort to software pre-rendering."
Sony was criticized in 2007 for misleading gamers into believing a 2005 trailer, which showed Killzone 2 looking like something out of an Industrial Light & Magic reel as opposed to something coming from a game console.
Despite a healthy lineup of games (detailed here), the PS3 has struggled to gain momentum since its launch in 2006, primarily due to its $400 price tag. Unfortunately for Sony, an embattled US economy couldn't have come at a worse time.
