    It says there are currently 60 package titles and 50 PSN titles for PS3 worldwide. They are planning marketing events with software publishers and new network services such as a video sharing service (eyeVio?).

    Is there any chance for downoadable PS2 games? Cos this 180 number cant be filled with just PS1 titles.

    Was there a news a while ago that Sony made a deal with Neo-Geo, or something like that???

    Is Sony also double / triple counting the different regional version of software titles like Nintendo? E.g. Madden US + Madden Europe = 2 different games?

    I doubt it. Probably alot of games like those featured on the XBLA. But could also be full on titles like Socom: Confrontation & WarHawk. Hopefully get a list soon.

    I'm not sure. As far as I can tell they've always considered them separate catalogs. Plus if you think about it, thats only like 5 games a week. Thats not so unrealistic considering the amount of 1st party studios that Sony has under its belt.

    I don't believe this news. That's way too many game releases for such a short time frame. I think the 380 number is an exaggeration.

    Sounds a great many. Maybe those few surprise announcement titles for E3 will turn out to be 100 games!

    Fine. Right. But apart from Ninja Gaiden, Heavenly Sword, MGS, RATCHED & CLANK, WARHAWK, Uncharted, FF13, Little Big Planet, Killzone, Grand Turismo 5, Afrika, FF13 vs, Lair, SOCOM, GoW3, Resistance, The Show, and Motorstorm, what has the PS3 ever done for us?!

    [moral of this tale : Games worth a PS3 are subjective. Lists can included every title ever to come to the platform, as for some people that might be all it takes...]

    Wow, I must have slept under a rock the last few months while these games were released, you played them and found them to be good?

    The rock must also have hit you pretty hard on the head if you failed to follow the reasoning.

    You get confused too easy :)

    100 this year (Jan-Dec 2007) and 200 from March 2007 to March 2008, so the two "years" overlap. The 380 includes DLC which could be PSX1 games. At least that's how I read it.

    that sounds resonable, I also think that it will be PSX1 games amongst other games.
