E3 06: Sony's PlayStation 2, PSP E3 Lineup

Sony Computer Entertainment America announces first-party games to be shown next week in LA.

Sony has announced the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable games that it will show at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. While the big draw for the company will be the PlayStation 3, we'll have to wait until Monday's press conference for more details on Sony's next-gen offering. For the time being, the number of PSP games that will be shown at E3 outnumbers the PS2 offerings, with nine for the PSP and six for the PS2.

Most of Sony's PSP titles will land in the US in the autumn, with a couple of games to be released over the summer--Lemmings in May and World Tour Soccer '06 in June. Lemmings was released in the UK in March. The other titles on offer are ATV Offroad Fury Pro, Gangs of London, Killzone: Liberation, LocoRoco, NBA '07, Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 2.

On the PlayStation 2, the company is lining up ATV Offroad Fury 4, NBA '07, Rogue Galaxy, and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs for release in the US in autumn, and God of War II for 2007.

psp is the best portable gameing device. esp. if they get the gps. I HATE it when people say that ds is better, the graphics suck, there is no function except games. It is a horrible value, psp gets movies,games (with 5x better graphix than DS) ,pix,music, internet, location free player(tv) and Rss capabilaties. PSP RAPES DS.

I'm looking forward for God of War II the most. But I'm more interested in their PS3 lineup and if games like Killzone 2 and Motorstorm were shown in real time. I know they confirmed it but Sony isn't exactly a role model for truth.

Sony's going to Blast E3 with the games they got, To bad we have to wait for the release dates, but once the wait is over, everythings worth it.

Its going to be a good year for sony with the launch and all of the ps3 later this year and MGS: 4 Guns of the patriots.

i'm telling you, sony has to come up big at E3... they need to let players be able to play the PS3 this year. they have a lot to reveal, like a possible new controller design, the issue with the blu-ray disc copyrights... maybe even hardware problems... if they can answer all of these and provide people with a working system, they will be very dominate.

Great to see more for the psp.....They need to come out with a new game every month with QUALITY. Syphon Filter was awesome, Burnout legends was awesome, POP Revelations, even with some of it's sound problems was still great. ALL new games should only be $39.99 or less Please.

The Loco Roco demo was extraordinary. Ans what are you talking about, KMLB2000 ??? Daxter and Syphon Filter on PSP are gorgeous, especially the online mode for Syphon Filter.

LocoRoco and GOW2 are the only two I'm interested since I already completed Rogue Galaxy Japanese version. GOW2 hopefully as good or better than the first game. LocoRoco looks like might bring some life to my PSP which I'm barely touching because of my fab DSLite.

GoW2 is about the only thing I care about right now.

The games coming from sony arent that great really. LocoRoco and GOWII would be on my list of games to buy, and seeing a gameplay movie of gangs of london (fair enough i didnt see the full game) but i always thought the getaway wasnt that great that games needs a good story lots of action and some good controls because the getaways controls sucked. But there are probably lots of secrets coming mostly about the ps3 like tekken 6 will be shown hopefully playable, and so's ridge racer but everyone will wanna see killzone 2 to see how good it looks lol. But the games that have been announced arent all amazing some good ones and most average seen before games just rehashed it seems the only original game for the psp is LocoRoco and the game everyone who owns a ps2 will be looking forward to GOWII and thats about it. We will all have to wait for E3 to see the good stuff like ps3 games and maybe some suprise psp games? I hope so. :P

PS2 has Lumines Plus, God of War 2, Okami, Rogue Galaxy, Yakuza, Disgaea 2, FFXII.. and that's probably gonna be it for the PS2 for me. Really great run for the system, though. I'm sure the PS3 will be great, eventually, but since I already know what to expect from it I'm much more curious about Wii and DS titles. If I had a PSP .. Loco Roco would be on the list, definitely.

GoW 2 is the only one that I'm excited about.

Very nice line-up! I can't wait to see more on God of War II, both Socoms, and Killzone: Liberation!

Some great games, although I would have loved some more "epic" PSP games coming from Sony, not that the games being shown at the show aren't good. It's just, 3 of those 9 games are must-have and the rest leave a lot more to be desired. Hope Sony's 3rd party support can show more of an impact.

BO-ring. Nothing to get excited about, unfortunately...
