Sony US unveils new 2008/2009 Game line-up!

50°
335w ago - Sony America has colored in the remaining blanks on its release schedule for the rest of 2008 and early 2009. The most newsworthy appearance is the addition of Buzz PS3 and Buzz PSP to the line-up, with both versions set to launch this Autumn.

Meanwhile, the first episode of the Siren: Blood Curse PSN series is due to appear this summer. Elsewhere, there was only one first-party release for the PS2 on the schedule. Helps it stay active.

Sony America went on to boast that the PS3 momentum was stronger than ever in 2007 thanks to Blu-ray becoming the sole high-definition disc format, as well as from strong sales from last Christmas and the success of titles such as Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

More than 8 million people have registered on the PlayStation Network now, apparently, and downloaded around 140 million items.

"For the second half of 2008 and beyond, we will see a spectacular line up of triple-A titles and original gaming content that will satisfy PlayStation fans across the board," said Scott Steinberg, Sony US smooth talker.

The entire US line-up is as follows:

PlayStation Network titles

* wipEout HD (Summer)
* Elefunk (Summer)
* PixelJunk Eden (Summer)
* Siren: Blood Curse (Summer)

Rare-developed Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise will also be shown off, and is scheduled for a September release.

For the first time, players will be able to collaborate together on a garden through a rich co-op experience, connect and play with others online via Xbox Live as well as instantly introduce new piñata species to their garden through an innovative new feature utilizing the Xbox Live Vision Camera.

And the game of the moment, Rare's Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts - which has been at the centre of a raft of leaked internet stories this week - is pencilled in for a November release, according to Microsoft.
