Sony's Secret Weapon
Posted on Wednesday, September 13 @ 21:17:07 Eastern by Joe_DodsonWhile the PS3's launch seems more loaded with disappointments than games (sorry, world) it may not matter. After perusing our recently updated release lists, it became Blu-Ray clear to us that the PS2's holiday line up is packed with more potential hits than the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, and just as much love. Here are six luscious lumps of coal Sony will try to put in Nintendo's, Microsoft's and your stockings this holiday season.
Okami - Scheduled for release this Monday, Capcom's latest action romp is more beautiful than Viewtiful. (September 19)
Final Fantasy XII - We could tell you this game gave its players rabies, chronic diarrhea and breasts, and you'd still buy it. Probably twice. (October 31)
SOCOM: U.S. Navy Seals – Combined Assault - It may sport one of the worst titles, ever, but it may also be the best online shooter, ever, for the PS2. (November 7)
Guitar Hero II - If this game really did give players rabies, chronic diarrhea and breasts, we'd just have to play it on the toilet while frothing all over our new rack. Hey, worked for Elvis. (November 7)
This isn't to jump on the fan wagon or make nice with Sony, but rather to point out that while those crazy early adopters are waiting all night in lines to shell out anywhere from three (Wii) to eight hundred dollars (PS3) before they even get any games, PS2 owners can drop roughly three hundred and spend the holidays with six of the season's best looking titles. Bras, diapers and rabies shots, not included.
