Round 3 of the Ultimate PS3 Showdown has officially begun, and it's time to select the games that will star in the Final Four. "The Best" is about to get even better, and only your vote can make that happen. Follow the link below to the official polling thread for this match-up, and keep an eye on your brackets - with a free PS3 game on the line, the stakes won't get much higher.


The Contenders:

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

If Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a great game, then Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was nothing short of spectacular. Nathan Drake's second adventure - equal parts shooting, climbing, and puzzle-solving - topped the first in every way. Bigger action. Thrilling setpieces. A tighter story. Refined controls and shooting took things to the next level and cemented our wise-cracking hero as one of gaming's biggest stars. Who doesn't remember leaping between speeding trucks on an icy mountain road, or scaling the rooftops of Nepal while squaring off against an attack helicopter? These moments, and many, many more, are memorable evidence of Uncharted 2's excellence.

LittleBigPlanet 2

Sackboy's first outing was an incredible debut on PS3, but LittleBigPlanet 2 was a bigger and better creative powerhouse. Media Molecule gave fans the tools to create, and create they did. Entire games have been constructed using assets both included and original, and LittleBigPlanet 2's network now boasts millions of levels and content pieces. It certainly helps that Media Molecule brought creativity of their own - the story and level design of LBP 2 were huge steps up from its predecessor. For frantic co-op fun, for irresistible charm, and for the builder in all of us, there's simply nothing better on PS3.
