Next-gen gets rolling with Sonic on PS3, Xbox 360, Monkey Ball on Wii; others include Chromehouds, The Club, Full Auto 2.
Sega has been taking an interesting approach to this year's E3, choosing to trickle out its game announcements rather than bombard gamers with a full list. The "Road to E3," as Sega calls it, continued today with the announcement of The Club, an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title.
Even though there's still some road to travel for Sega, the publisher has announced its lineup of games that will be featured at E3. However, there are still three more surprises in store, the company says, likely to be announced next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
For now, Sega appears to be concentrating on the next generation, with titles like Chromehounds (Xbox 360), Full Auto 2: Battlelines (PS3), Sega Rally Revo (PS3, Xbox 360), and Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz (Wii).
The biggest splash features Sega's most iconic character, Sonic the Hedgehog, as he makes his next-gen debut on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For his 15th birthday, the speedy critter will star in Sonic the Hedgehog, the first Sonic game to be set in "a human world."
A partial list of Sega's E3 lineup, with release dates, is below:
Chromehounds (Xbox 360)--summer 2006
The Club (Working title, PS3, 360)--summer 2007
Full Auto 2: Battlelines (PS3)--November 2006
Medieval II: Total War (PC)--November 2006
Phantasy Star Universe (PS2, Xbox 360, PC)--fall 2006
Sega Rally Revo (PS3, Xbox 360)--spring 2007
Sonic Rivals (PSP)--fall 2006
Sonic The Hedgehog (PS3, Xbox 360)--fall 2006
Super Monkey Ball Adventure (PS2, GC, PSP)--July 2006
Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz (Wii)--fall 2006
Virtua Tennis 3 (PS3)--spring 2007
World Pool Championship 2007 (PS2, PSP)--September 2006

Lets hope they show the incredible hulk game that is based on the movie next year.There isn't harldy any info on it.
Did no one actually read this article?!? "I cant wait for Sonic" Well you don't have to because it's out right now!!!!! Goofs :P
omg, they come out with Yakuza for the PS2 NOW?!?? It's been how many years.... Looking forward to the new Sonic game though.
What I don't get it the logic behind making Full Auto 2 a PS3 exclusive. The original fans of the game played the first one on the 360. You'd think that if they were going to do a sequel they'd put it on the same console as the original. Way to screw fans of the original, Sega.
Football Manager is coming out, it's not a very E3 type big game, so why show it? Also, just to clarify--VT3 is on 360, either they're only showing the PS3 version or it was just an article mixup...
Arg wheres the Sonic for Wii??? I could care less about Super Monkey Ball, The first 2 were ok but now, come on
WHAT! Virtua Tennis 3 only on PS3..... NOOOOOOOOOO! The only thing worse than that is sega not releasing the new sonic game on Wii, wait a sec..... NOOOOOOOOO!
and where is the next gen Tenchu game? and what about Tenchu Ds? that list is odd, no nintendo support, crappy games (beside yakuza and sonic), no footballmanager and no games that came out in japan and i thought they will bring it here. Sega is odd.
you know, segas multiplatfor games sell best on gamcube, just look at sonic riders last week, why aren't they support Gamcube, Ds and the mighty Wii, (and dont tell me that gamecube is dead, cuz if its sega product it wiil sell) i think they don't want a profit, Sega; - SCREW you.
So virtua tennis wont be on the 360 well that sucks. I was looking forward to this game. Sega made a bad move.
"Sonic for the ps3 and x-box 360, but not for wii? oh well... sega has a pretty solid lineup, and i am looking forward to more games" Sega also has a Sonic game in development for the Wii that's exclusive to that system. It's supposed to be completely different from the PS3/Xbox 360 game, so... we'll see.
Sonic for the ps3 and x-box 360, but not for wii? oh well... sega has a pretty solid lineup, and i am looking forward to more games
