With just under a month before the long-awaited PlayStation 3 video game console releases, we finally have firm information about what will join the system on store shelves during the holiday season. Courtesy of GameSpot, here are the 21 games (likely selling for $60 each) that will be available on or soon after the PS3's November 17 release:
Additionally, Sony will make a few accessories available on day one, including a $50 HDMI cable (the PS3's HDMI-out can use any HDMI cable), the $50 SixAxis wireless controller, and a $15 device called the PS3 Memory Card Adapter that allows you to import your PS2 and PS1 game saves. Lastly, Sony announced a pack-in Blu-ray movie for the PlayStation 3--Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. What, no NASCAR game to tie it into? Somebody dropped the ball.
One movie that may not ever be played on the PlayStation 3--or any other format for that matter--is the Halo film adaptation, which has reportedly seen its studio support blown to pieces like a hapless soldier idling by a frag grenade (from Joystiq, via Variety). When a flick based on one of gaming's biggest franchises backed by Peter Jackson--the director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy--can't get off the ground, I lose a little faith in Hollywood. Are we going to have to turn to Uwe Boll now?
