PS3 launch: 29 games mooted

Thursday 17 August 2006
A launch line-up of 29 games is planned for the PlayStation 3 release this November including Resident Evil 5, Vision Gran Turismo and Assassin's Creed, according to US online retailer Best Buy.

The 29 games are due to come out around the Sony console's 17 November launch date and would make for a fantastic line-up. The full list is as follows.

Army of Two (EA)
Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft)
Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (Ubisoft)
Call of Duty 3 (Activision)
Devil May Cry 4 (Capcom)
Fight Night: Round 3 (EA)
Final Fantasy versus XIII (Square Enix)
Full Auto 2: Battlelines (Sega)
Heavenly Sword (Sony)
Hot Shots Golf 5 (Sony)
Indiana Jones (LucasArts)
Killzone 2 (Sony)
Madden NFL 07 (EA)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (Activision)
Medal of Honor: Airborne (EA)
Monster Kingdom (Sony)
Motorstorm (Sony)
Rainbow Six Vegas (Ubisoft)
Resident Evil 5 (Capcom)
Scarface: The World is Yours (Vivendi)
Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega)
Splinter Cell Double Agent (Ubisoft)
Stranglehold (Midway)
Tekken 6 (Sony)
Tony Hawk's Project 8 (Activision)
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom (Sony)
Virtua Fighter 5 (Sega)
Vision Gran Turismo (Sony)
Warhawk (Sony)

Now before anyone gets carried away, there are some glaring errors in Best Buy's list such as a 2006 release for Resident Evil 5, Tekken 6, Stranglehold, Indiana Jones and Killzone 2, as well as some that might have later releases such as Army of Two. But what we can say is that the launch line-up is in there, somewhere. Probably
