Sony Packs September Full of AAA PS3 Releases
Last night while recording our podcast, we discussed this upcoming week’s notable PlayStation 3 releases… or lack thereof. That’s right, there isn’t any. It’s a stale week for PlayStation 3 gamers, at least at the retail level. But take this as the calm before the storm, as Sony has some of their heaviest hitters releasing this September. Let’s take a look.
Resistance 3 - Release Date: September 6th
Resistance 3 is mankind’s final stand against the Chimeran invasion. Following the dramatic events of Resistance 2, the series is left without a protagonist… until Joseph Capelli steps in. Rather than fighting for a faceless army, Capelli fights for the survival of his friends and family – and for the rest of humanity. Resistance 3 features everything that made the first two titles so spectacular, but with a much darker tone, along with PlayStation Move and 3D support. Pre-order Resistance 3 now.
Resistance 3: Doomsday Edition – Release Date: September 6th
This Resistance 3 bundle features the full game, a PlayStation Move controller, PlayStation Move Navigation Controller, PlayStation Eye camera, and a PlayStation Move Sharpshooter attachement. Buying these items separately would cost you roughly $200, but this bundle is a value at $149.99. Pre-order Resistance 3: Doomsday Edition now.
God of War: Origins Collection – Release Date: September 13th
God of War: Origins Collection contains everything you need to know about Kratos’ past. This collection takes the two PSP God of War titles, God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta, and gives them an HD makeover. This collection is perfect for gamers without a PSP, or couldn’t take the PSP’s control scheme and would prefer to play on a Dualshock 3 controller. Pre-order God of War Origins Collection now.
ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection – Release Date: September 27th
This much-anticipated collection puts two of the PlayStation 2′s most venerable classics into one value package. ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are both remastered in full HD and 3D, complete with trophies. At $39.99, it’s a collection you simply shouldn’t miss – especially if you happened to have missed either of the two included titles on the PS2. Pre-order ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection now.
