290w 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)
309w ago - In 2008, the PSP has an attractive mix of titles ranging from niche to high-profile console-like games. Here are Next-Gen's most anticipated games for PSP in 2008.
If it weren't for the phenomenal success of Nintendo's DS, today we might be praising the PSP up-and-down for being such a hit. Ever since the last price drop, the hardware revision and some wise marketing decisions by SCEA, it seems that people are finally realizing that the PSP is a great machine in its own right.
In all of our other Games of 2008 features, we've given software sales estimates for the first three months of US sales, but for PSP, we're going to give a very general range for all titles, because history shows that the handheld's top titles all sell within about the same range.
Taking into consideration a growing installed base, we expect the higher-profile, late-year PSP games to sell as many as 400K copies in the US in the first three months (which would be a sizeable achievement compared to the top-sellers in 2007). More obscure or niche titles on our list may sell around or below 100K during the same time frame.
As all of the games are works in progress, release dates and some details are subject to change. Estimates were calculated by reviewing the sales of a 2008 game's previous franchise...
