Sony promises 30 PS3 games for day one of console launch

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the 30 games lined up for the European launch of PlayStation 3 will be available from day one.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the 30 games lined up for the European launch of PlayStation 3 will be available from day one.

There had been suggestions that the list of titles announced last month were actually "launch window" releases - but according to Sony, that's not the case.

Speaking to our sister site, Eurogamer.net, Sony's David Wilson said, "It is our aspiration that all of the 30 titles mentioned in our announcement will be available at launch of PlayStation 3 on 23rd March."

The full list of launch titles includes downloadable games plus first-party offerings such as Resistance: Fall of Man and Motorstorm. Some of the third-party games, including Oblivion and Call of Duty 3, have already been available on Xbox 360 for some time - but Sony believes that the range of depth of choice will ultimately prevail.

The 60GB PlayStation 3 will launch in Europe on March 23, priced at GBP 425 / EUR 599.
