Sensationalist headlines have been proclaiming Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s alleged announcement of the first wave of PlayStation 3 launch games, but those words are a little premature. The company’s only reconfirming games revealed at last September’s Tokyo Game Show that have been added to their release database.
The Eye of Judgment, Genji 2, Angel Rings, Monster Carnival, Minna no Golf 5 (Hot Shots Golf) and a Gran Turismo game have all been added to the extensive database of typically upcoming PlayStation 2 and PSP games. As you’d expect, the games don’t have release dates attached to them, so talk of launch games is nothing but rumor mongering.
It’d be pretty odd for Sony to be so secretive since Tokyo Game Show and then suddenly blow everything by an accidental web listing, too. The sooner everyone realizes there won’t be any PlayStation 3 information until Sony’s good and ready to spill the goods, the less anxious we’ll all be before it happens.
I’m not really kidding anyone, though. I’m just as anxious. Gimme a new Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots trailer before I lose it.
