Gran Turismo 5, one of the most anticipated games of all time, offers the world’s most realistic and comprehensive driving experience. With more than 1,000 licensed cars and 70 locations, it once more sets the benchmark in the racing, driving simulation genre. This award-winning franchise has clocked up more than 55 million sales worldwide.
Since its release in November 2008, LittleBigPlanet has sold millions of copies worldwide and has been credited with creating a new genre- creative gaming, as well as introducing a new gaming hero, Sackboy. The highly anticipated LittleBigPlanet 2 returns with more than 40 new story mode levels, plus supercharged new gadgets and tools in a beautifully reshaped world.
Killzone 3 raises the bar both graphically and gameplay wise from its critically acclaimed predecessors. Offering a robust first person shooter experience, players are once again fighting for human survival against the Helghast army in a title that boasts Hollywood-style production values and environments 10 times bigger than Killzone 2.
MotorStorm: Apocalypse ramps up a gear in the latest off-road racing adventure. Fully customisable muscle cars, superbikes, supercars and choppers will be added to the mix of MotorStorm classics. Players can enjoy more than 40 unique tracks, which change with each visit, and the unpredictability of a crumbling urban environment.
Building on the success of the multimillion-selling franchise, SOCOM : Special Forces delivers the ultimate next-generation combat experience blending rich cinematics, PlayStation Move integration, a robust single-player campaign and industry leading competitive multiplayer.
inFamous 2 is the second chapter in the best-selling franchise exclusively for the PlayStation3 system. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, inFamous 2 takes last summer’s blockbuster to all-new heights in an immersive open world action adventure that offers a more visceral, emotional and powerful take on the true superhero experience.
In addition to SCEE confirming some of its key 2010 releases, it has also offered
3 developer sessions, with key game developers: Guerilla Games, makers of Killzone 3; Media Molecule, makers of LittleBigPlanet; and Evolution Studios, makers of MotorStorm: Apocalypse.
Rupert Loman, Managing Director at Eurogamer, said:“To say that these titles are benchmark franchises is an understatement. With Sony’s partnership we are offering gamers a hands-on experience with some of the most anticipated releases for 2010 and 2011. These titles will be a huge draw for consumers and confirm the Eurogamer Expo as the most important destination for UK gamers”.
Alan Duncan, Marketing Director at SCE UK added:“We are thrilled to be partners at the Eurogamer Expo. It’s a unique opportunity for gamers to spend time with our upcoming line-up and get a real feeling for the depth of quality and innovation we’ve got to offer over the coming months.”
