But there's also a lot of content due on PS3 this year that's been swept under the carpet a little; ignored by the masses. We're here to take a look at some of the unsung heroes of Playstation 3 in early 2010. Join us after the jump to see what we think is going to rock, and make sure you tell us what's got you in a lather.
White Knight Chronicles: It's been a long, long time coming, and now it finally has a release date, it has to make do with a slot right next door to the biggest RPG franchise in the world, Final Fantasy. Still, poor as the timing may be, White Knight Chronicles' innovative online structure and solid production values might just plug the gap for eager RPG gamers while they wait for the "holy grail" of FFXIII.
3D Dot Game Heroes: Recognising the success of From Software's previous release, Demon's Souls, 3D Dot Game Heroes is a game getting the treatment it absolutely deserves. With a prompt localisation effort being made, and a release planned worldwide, this PS3-exclusive modelled on classic adventure titles could become a sleeper summer-smash.
Yakuza 3: It's been a long-time coming, but the super-niche Yakuza 3 has finally gotten a Western release date. While the game is due to sit among many other big hitters in the March period, the game has a solid Western following that should make it somewhat of a quiet success for SEGA. Plus, it's Yakuza 3, finally available with English language text options. It's like a dream come true.
Just Cause 2: Thus far, every trailer for Just Cause 2 has demanded our full attention. The variation in the gameplay looks seriously unparalleled, and the rich vibrant world looks really interesting. We have very, very high hopes for Just Cause 2 indeed, despite the gaming community practically ignoring its existence.
Modnation Racers: Sony's latest attempt at the "Play, Create, Share" mandate might have gained a small following since its recent beta, but given the nature of the title, it seems the Playstation faithful doesn't quite know what to make of Modnation Racers yet. If you've ever played and enjoyed Mario Kart, we suggest being very excited indeed.
What overlooked titles are you looking forward to, valued reader?
