As the photo above indicates, snapped from this month’s Edge magazine but almost certainly appearing across multiple outlets, Sony are still happy to really push the PS3, at least through until the all important Christmas period.
“The time to own a PlayStation 3 is now” the advert sings.
It’s likely we’ll see a further price-cut later this year, perhaps at Gamescom but more likely just before the PlayStation 4 appears, which is expected in November.
Until then, the ad lists AAA titles like The Last Of Us, God of War, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Beyond: Two Souls, Batman and Gran Turismo 6, the latter just with a tentative ‘Christmas’ release date, the rest much more confident, if they’re not already on the shelves.
With some killer games still to come – and that list doesn’t include potential greats like Puppeteer – it’s obvious why Sony are still wanting to showcase what their current-gen device can do. But it’s good to see that as the PS4 looms, Sony’s big black PS3 can still push the great games out.
It’s a strong line-up, certainly more buoyant than that of the Wii U (which is perhaps the aim of the advert) and with exclusives the 360 could only dream of.
