Sony admits PS3 games lull

Sony Europe's boss David Reeves has been speaking to MCV about the state of the PlayStation nation saying that PS3 is selling faster than both PS2 and PSOne and the games lull will soon be over.

"Early last week we went through the one million mark on PS3. And we did that in nine and a half weeks," he told the trade publication. "That was faster than both PS2 and PSOne. And I think that the analysts out there will also realise that it's faster than our brothers and sisters in the competitive world." Reeves cited Resistance: Fall of Man and Motorstorm as the biggest sellers so far.

The question we've all been asking though is where are all the killer games for PS3? Reeves admitted that there has been something of a lull in releases since launch, but promised that "our big bangs will be arriving around September and October; Phil [Harrison] will be announcing these at a later date, but they will probably be in the arena of social gaming as well as more traditional games."
