PS3 release day games

Call of Duty 3, Tony Hawk's Project 8 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance will all be available for the US launch of the PlayStation 3 this November, according to Activision bigwig Robert Kotick. He then went on to unveil publisher Activision's plans for the next 12 months, with Spider-Man 3, Shrek the Third and Transformers set for a June release, followed by a new Call of Duty, the 2007 Tony Hawk game, The Bee Movie, a Marvel title and a new Guitar Hero game later in the year.

Several of these are working titles but it's no surprise that Activision plans to continue releasing new versions of its strongest games.

During his revealing presentation at a recent conference, Kotick also confirmed that Activision's PS3 games would be priced at the same level as its 360 games: "We have not seen a lot of consumer resistance at the higher price points, and we expect that all of our next-gen products will be launched at $60 price points."

Which is depressing, really, as it suggests that Activision would go lower if gamers weren't so accepting of $60 price tags.
