Last Guardian, Agent and FFXIV to be PS3 exclusives

Sony announces brand new titles from Famita Ueda, Rockstar and Square Enix

Jack Tretton, head of Sony Computer Entertainment America, has revealed that Famita Ueda's much-rumoured Project Trico will bear the official title of Last Guardian, and will of course be a PlayStation 3 exclusive.

The game, from the same creative direction as emotive and critically-acclaimed Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, features a boy that has befriended a giant fox-bird creature, with a video showing the pair adventuring and battling together.

Tertton also announced that GTA developer Rockstar North is currently working on a completely new IP called Agent, which will be a PlayStation 3 exclusive, while Square Enix will also release a PS3 exclusive in 2010 - Final Fantasy XIV, despite the yet-to-be released FFXIII making its way for the first time to the Xbox 360.

The Rockstar game, which will be set in the late 1970s around the shadowy world of espionage, is a sign, said Tretton, that the developer recognises the importance of the PlayStation platform: "We expect Agent to have the same must-have value as GTA did," he added, although no video, screenshots or expected release date were revealed.

Meanwhile, a video for Final Fantasy XIV - which will be an MMO - was shown, consisting of cutscene footage, much to the surprice of the E3 press conference audience, while updated versions of Gran Turismo 5 and God of War III were also presented.
