Sony says it has a better lineup of games for 2008

ps3 controllerSony is feeling pretty confident about the future of its PS3 game lineup for 2008. So much so that SCEE chief, David Reeves, said that he thought Sony’s lineup was better than Microsoft’s. No surprise here. 

But Reeves really may have some facts to back up his sanguine outlook. With the arrival of expected blockbuster hits coming down the pike such as Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 2 and LittleBigPlanet, it looks like a pretty solid lineup indeed.

Reeves was asked if he thought the Xbox 360 was in trouble but was diplomatic in saying that Microsoft has really helped the game industry.

"No I don’t think it’s a sinking ship. I think they have contributed amazingly to the growth of the industry. And I think we have done exactly the same. We don’t criticize the competition because we are all in this industry and the only way you can do it is to actually bring more consumers in.

"So I’m not going to criticize them. All I’m saying is that I think that when we look ahead I think we honestly have a better line-up on PS3 than they probably do on Xbox. They’ve had two or three Christmases now, I can’t remember how many, you know, but I think we’ve got a really good one coming up. Not just Christmas but in the summer as well."

Regardless of whether Sony’s lineup is better than the Xbox 360’s or not, the PS3 has certainly come a long way from being the pariah of the game industry to being a game console that is churning out sales numbers that are making Sony brass grin from ear to ear.
