Sony lists playable PS3, PSP games at TGS

More than two-dozen games for Sony's next-gen system can be played by the general public at next month's event in Japan.


One of the major disappointments at Tokyo Game Show 2005 was the lack of playable games for the PlayStation 3. In fact, there weren't any playable PlayStation 3 games on the show floor last year--only on-stage demos of such titles as Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

That won't be the case this year. Sony Computer Entertainment revealed that 27 PlayStation 3 titles will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show. This year's Electronic Entertainment Expo featured significantly fewer playable titles.

TGS, which will be open to the general public for part of its September 22 to 24 run, will let gamers sample a variety of next-generation titles, including high-profile E3 no-shows like Devil May Cry 4. A number of PlayStation Portable games, including several that support the system's upcoming global-positioning system add-on, will also be shown in playable form. Also, the Sony booth will feature a theater at which new video footage of an additional 35 titles will be shown. A preliminary list of titles to be shown follows below.
