- Today SCEA's Senior Vice President of Publisher Relations Rob Dyer
has highlighted some of the E3 2010 PlayStation publishing partner announcements.
To quote: E3 may have come to a close, but we couldn't be more excited by the plethora of great games and content available for PlayStation fans.
Along with PlayStation Move and a host of exclusive titles coming from our first party developers, our publishing partners were out in force taking full advantage of everything PS3 and PSP have to offer.
One of the biggest surprises at E3 was Gabe Newell
arrival on the stage at the press conference earlier this week.
He acknowledged his appreciation for the PS3 as "the most open platform of all the current generation consoles." He went on to not only announce that Portal 2 was coming to the PlayStation 3, but also to state that it'll be the "best version on any console."
also introduced several exclusives to PS3 including the special edition version of Medal of Honor that comes with the 2002 classic Medal of Honor Frontline, which has been updated and re-mastered with HD visuals.
And those of you looking forward to Dead Space 2 can pick up the premium edition, which includes Dead Space Extraction. A prequel to the original Dead Space, Dead Space Extraction will be fully Move compatible and also offer trophy support. Offering these packed-in hits like Medal of Honor Frontline and Dead Space Extraction is something only possible on PS3 because of Blu-ray.
Fans of Assassin's Creed can look forward to an exclusive beta of the new multiplayer campaign within Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
, with the beta hitting PSN in late summer. 2K Games
' Mafia II will also feature unique content for PS3, including exclusive day-one content including missions, story and gameplay. There's also the much-anticipated shooter from Crytek, Crysis 2, which will sport 3D-compatible graphics on the PS3.
These along with other great titles, including Kojima's
recently-released masterpiece Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Sony Online Entertainment's much-anticipated MMO DC Universe Online, are expanding our library of titles and offerings for gamers, and help make our family of products some of the best of the industry.
