273w ago - One of the things I remember from this year's E3 is when Jack Tretton said that the year 2008 is the year where the PlayStation 3 will rise up to its competitiors. With the launching of the PlayStation Video Store this year, and LittleBigPlanet finally approaching by the end of the year, is 2008 really the year of the PlayStation 3?
The PlayStation 3 has lost a lot of third party exclusive games this year such as Devil May Cry 4, Grand Theft Auto IV, Ace Combat 6, Tales of Vesperia, and Star Ocean 4, but this doesn't stop Sony from going. Even though Sony has lost the faith of its third party developers, they have big studios all around the world to bring you first party exclusive titles that we await this year, such as Resistance 2 and LittleBigPlanet.
Will these first party titles of Sony be enough to sustain the glory that the PlayStation brand once had? Will this year's Holiday titles be enough? With 111 days left before year 2009 kicks in, let's take a look of the exclusive games Sony has this fall:
