PlayStation 3 fall lineup 'unmatched,' says Sony

LittleBigPlanet, Socom: Confrontation, Resistance 2 and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.

Sony Computer Entertainment president Jack Tretton is confident his first-party fall lineup has the skills to pay the bills.

"We're looking forward to a solid holiday season and are excited to offer a string of unmatched content to consumers in the coming months with LittleBigPlanet, Socom: Confrontation, Resistance 2, and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift," said Tretton, in response to August NPD numbers released Thursday.

By comparison, Microsoft's first-party lineup this fall includes Gears of War 2, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise, Fable 2, and Banjo and Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.

Nintendo, usually the strongest first-party competitor, will have little on tap this fall, partly due to the company having already released a majority of its high-profile franchises on Wii thus far. Notable games coming before the end of the year include Wario Land: Shake It, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Wii Music.

Regardless of who you feel has the best first-party lineup, the playing field levels quite a bit when considering multiplatform and third party exclusive games, of which there are many for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. So whatever system you own, this holiday is shaping up to be another memorable season for games.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
