Earlier in the week, I posted about Sony’s list of 20 games coming exclusively to the PS3 this year. Three of those games now have confirmed launch dates.
First up is Killzone 3. Yes, the February 22nd launch date has been scheduled for months, but Sony has just announced that the Guerrilla Games FPS has gone gold. So barring an unexpected GT5-style delay, KZ3‘s date with retailers is set in stone.
Next on the calendar is PlayStation Move Heroes, the cross-universe action game starring Sony platformer mascots Jak, Daxter, Sly, Bentley, Ratchet and Clank. It’ll be out exactly one month later on March 22nd, hopefully delivering the next killer app the Move so desperately needs right now.
After that, Evolution Studios’ latest off-road racer, MotorStorm Apocalypse, drives into stores on April 12th. It should be a fun, explosive counterpoint to the sterile sim realism of GT5.
One final note: The Wall Street Journal is reporting a planned April launch for SOCOM 4, though a specific date is not mentioned. With or without it, though, the PS3 will have plenty to keep gamers busy through the spring.
