E3: Sony PlayStation 3 game round-up

On day two of E3, Sony kicked off their announcement with some new game titles and demonstrations of what consumers can expect this holiday season. Sony's focus on the PlayStation 3 is to tightly integrate your in-home gaming experience and be at the forefront of the industry.

PlayStation 3's big focus for this year and next will be to introduce 3D into your games and into your home. Sony is introducing some new 3D games like Killzone 3, Fight, Grand Turismo 5 and many more.

Killzone 3D
Sony started off their announcements with a demo of Killzone 3. The third installment in the series, exclusively on the PlayStation 3, will for the first time be featured in 3D.  The live 3D demo showed off some new stylish gameplay, including a jetpack to fly around. The demonstration also showed off some really interactive AI gameplay and life-like graphics.

Although the demo was showing off "pre alpha" code, the gameplay appeared almost flawless without any major glitches. Killzone 3 will also be fully compatible with PlayStation Move, taking your gaming experience to the next level.

Killzone 3 will be available worldwide this February only on the PlayStation 3.


Using the PlayStation Move controller, you can control a sorcerer and cast spells on enemies with the use of your controller. The game allows you to change into creatures such as a rat to navigate your way through small places, like a tunnel. Others creatures throughout the game will allow you to perform different tasks and complete challenges. Spells are cast using a specific motion of the controller to create fire, water, earth and other type of spells.

Sorcery is scheduled for release in Spring 2011.

Tiger Woods PGA 2011
Tiger Woods is back on the golf course, now with the integration of the PlayStation Move controller, you can have a life-like experience, without ever leaving your home.
