- Make no mistakes about it, Sony is not joking around when it comes down to first party releases. Having come off a solid holiday line up, including blockbusters like Uncharted, Warhawk, and Ratchet and Clank, SCEA has wasted no time in announcing their early 2008 offerings.
The great news here is that they've made MLB 08: The Show official, as you may have read in Ben's piece. This is great news because this year's MLB 07 was a fantastic game, but MLB 08 looks to improve in virtually every facet, with a visual overhaul to boot. Moreover, we're finally getting a WipeOut HD release date: early next year it is, which usually indicates a period between January and February.
Of course, for those pining for the smell of burnt rubber, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue will arrive within the first quarter of 2008 (we predict March). To top things off, the PSP's God of War: Chains of Olympus will also hit in March, so keep an eye out for that.
Below you'll find Sony's current line-up, much of which, you should notice will arrive before the Spring:
MLB: The Show 08 (PS3) - Spring 08
Hot Shots Golf 5 (PS3) - March 08
Wipeout HD (PSN) - Early 08
Rat Race (PSN) - Winter 07/08
echochrome (PSN) - Q1 2008
Grant Turismo 5: Prologue (PS3/PSN) - Q1 2008
