First of all, this is the product of having way too much free time.

Second, I figured it's about time to start looking at what a great year 2009 will be for PS3. 2008 was fantastic, but 2009 is looking even better.

This is my first time making one of these threads, so bear with me. I will be updating it with videos shortly. If I've missed anything please feel free to correct me.

Huge thanks to sykoex for helping me fill in the missing pieces!

And for those interested, here's the Wii equivalent of this thread: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=341519

This is a work in progress.

Updates: Added videos for most games.

12/30 - Added Cross Edge, Noby Noby Boy. Fixed KZ2 date.

2/04 - Added more titles, images for:
-God of War III
-MLB 09 The Show
-Noby Noby Boy
-Warriors Orochi Z
-Flower

Still working on images for other multiplatform games...

2/20 - Filled in all the missing images, added some videos, release dates.

4/1 - Added several new titles and images.


Here's is what you can look forward to:

The fuck is up with Joker's face? I'm all for staying true to the comics, but it just looks so weird (and out of place with completely normal human-Harley next to him). Arkham Asylum has the comic look right I think...

Also GT5 coming out next year?
:lol

Edt- And GoW3? :lol

Demon's Souls looks interesting. Is it a SotC-game?

Very nice list. Even more reasons to buy a PS3.

Looks like both Wii and PS3 have a stellar lineup for 2009, with more certainly to be announced and released during the actual year.

Dats some good quality stuff right there. At least I hope so. Street Fighter 4 is the only sure thing in my book though.

A lot of games with explosions and / or guns here. I haven't heard much about X Blades though. Is it an adventure game? Btw, what about Sonics ultimate genesis collection?

Oh man, Kagari, I fear for this thread after some of the recent teacup-tempests that have been happening in PS3 threads. Don't get eaten alive.

Oh, and some niggling issues: I don't think you can reasonably list FF Versus XIII for 2009 or that Quantum Theory project for that matter (and who knows as far as MAG and God of War 3 are concerned). Also, I'd hide the fact that DC Universe Online and a Red Faction game are coming to the PS3. Mere association with those games is probably reason enough not to buy the console if I didn't already own one.

Maybe I just wish VersusXIII was out next year :lol
But MAG has been said for 2009 already, and God of War III... who knows! And I'm being equal opportunity here... DC Online might not suck... maybe...

killzone is the only Non Multiplat that will grace my Ps3, everything else (exclusive, save for perhaps inFamous is a big meh)

Oh, if you're listing Uncharted 2 you might as well list R&C:F:2 because we all know it's coming.

Killzone 2, Infamous, HEAVY RAIN, White Knight Chronicles, FFXIII, Yakuza 3, and Uncharted 2 all interest me. And all but one are PS3 exclusives, plus I'm sure there are a couple more (at least) in that list that will end up impressing me.

2009 should be at the very least a solid year for the PS3, and rightfully so.

Good OP there, Kagari.

Meh at the multiplats. I'll just get them on the PC. And some of the games aren't going to make '09 I mean FFXIII Versus and God of War III? Really?

That saying White Knight Chronicles interests me.

If Yakuza 3 was the only one that actually came out, I'd be very happy.

I want that fucking game something fierce. Everything else is gravy.

Hey, you never know. FFXIII I would expect Square-Enix to be working on 24/7, considering that it needs to be out for PS3 and 360. You can't take such a task lightly. I do not think S-E would want to make their fans wait eons like they had to for FFXII, although I may very well be mistaken. Time will tell. But a demo in March next year, if it is released on time, is very promising.

If I'm mistaken and it's not out until 2010 or beyond, that would suck, but let's not hope we get a repeat of the delayfest that was FFXII.

We shall see. I get the feeling that they dropped the planned update for Prologue and instead just moved onto GT5 after Kaz's comments that were posted on GTP. Which would mean it'll be out next year.

Square-Enix has changed. ID-tagged soldiers carry...erm, nevermind.
