God of War III was finally released this week in North America. The third game in the popular series is the latest hit title from the exclusive library of the Playstation 3. It won’t be the last, however. Here are the top five upcoming Playstation 3 exclusives (that has been officially announced) to look forward to after God of War III.
5. SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs
Hot off the heels of the launch of MAG, Zipper Interactive will be returning to their beloved SOCOM: US Navy SEALs series this fall exclusively on the Playstation 3. This tactical third-person shooter will feature a full single-player campaign mode in addition to its ever-addicting online multiplayer modes. SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs should please the many hardcore fans of the series.
4. ModNation Racers
After the award-winning LittleBigPlanet, Sony decided to bring the “Plays, Create and Share” genre to the racing tracks with ModNation Racers. In addition to having the many elements you expect from a modern-day go-kart racer (including four-player split-screen in addition to online multiplayer), this console exclusive also has a deep but intuitive track editor and a streamlined sharing system.
Although very little has been revealed about this mysterious Playstation 3 exclusive, the few known details make it one of the most anticipated games on the system. For one, Agent is being handled by the critically-acclaimed Grand Theft Auto series. Furthermore, the game is also taking place in the unique Cold War era and has been in development for quite awhile. Agent certainly has the pedigree to be considered one of the most promising upcoming Playstation 3 exclusives.
2. Gran Turismo 5
After years of development, Gran Turismo is finally set to launch sometime in 2010. The latest game in the popular racing series features incredible high-definition graphics in addition to improved driving physics. With nearly 1,000 cars in addition to plenty of features and modes, Gran Turismo 5 will easily become the best exclusive racing game on the Playstation 3.
1. The Last Guardian
From the critically acclaimed developers of Team Ico, The Last Guardian is an adventure game starring ing a boy and his giant companion, Trico. Taking platforming elements from Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, the Playstation 3 exclusive also lets you interact with the realistically animated creature. Although not much has been shown of the game so far, the breath-taking graphics and spotless track record of Team Ico makes The Last Guardian the most anticipated Playstation 3 exclusive game now that God of War III has been released.
