    Smile Sony to Offer 27 PS3 Games

    Sony to Offer 27 PS3 Games at Tokyo Game Show

    Sony said on Wednesday it would offer 27 playable games for its PlayStation 3 at the Tokyo Game Show next month, a sign of progress in critical software development ahead of the November launch of the latest version of its blockbuster game console.

    Sony, which competes with Microsoft and Nintendo in the global video game market, offered 13 playable PS3 software titles at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) trade show in Los Angeles in May.

    Having a wide range of popular software at the time of the launch is considered crucial for success in the game console market.

    Any indication of how the upcoming console could fare is closely watched, as the success or failure of the game machine would exert a far-reaching impact on Sony's group-wide performance.

    At stake is not just pole position in the nearly $30 billion global video game industry, but dominance in next-generation DVDs and the commercial viability of Sony's Cell microchips, co-developed by Toshiba and IBM.

    Playable games at the Tokyo Game Show, which will run from September 22 to September 24, will include such titles as Ridge Racer 7 from Namco Bandai Holdings Inc. and Capcom Co. Ltd.'s Devil May Cry 4.

    Nice:

    Launch titles are a big reason why sony burried N64 off the bat....

    N64 had two titles... super mario 64 and piolet wings.
    Sony had 9 I think to pick from on launch.

    27 is alot of flavor to go around

    Xbox will have had the least amount of launch titles, but by being the first to the game by around a year it will make up for that. The Wii comes in just behind the PS3... it looks like launch titles wont be as big of a difference this time around.

    Just because they will have 27 playable games at TGS doesn't mean they are all launch titles...

    Several are likely just demos for games that may not even be out for up to a year from now.

    I would love the launch to have 27 titles, but you have to think that after forking out $650 for the machine, people may only have a budget to buy 1 or 2 games.

    So a publisher's standpoint would probably be to pressure Sony to have fewer launch titles to make sure what they release becomes an instant hit.
    i cant wait guys, this looks like the best console of all time

    some of my coworkers are skepticle about PS3, although their opinions won't change the fact that I am willing to spend $600 on a console (one bought a Bowflex and doesn't even use it!). PS3 will have titles that no other console will have, so that will win me over. Although the same goes for Wii and Xbox360, they will both have games that PS3 won't have. Eventually I will buy all 3. I haven't jumped on the Xbox360 bandwagon because of the hardware failure issues (also, WTF is up with only a 90 day warranty? That's saying the console is prone to hardware bugs/failure).
