PlayStation 3:

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One

Another rousing entry in the blockbuster action/platformer franchise, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One for the first time lets gamers play as Ratchet, Clank, Captain Qwark, or even Dr. Nefarious in co-op gameplay. In four-player story quests, teammates must work together, using each character's unique skills as well as sharing weapons between players, in order to solve puzzles and eliminate the opposition.

Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security home for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.


Ubisoft's Rocksmith is a music rhythm game that aims to teach gamers how to play a real electric guitar. It won't feature standard difficulty settings; instead, it will automatically adjust to the player's skill level.

Everybody Dance

Move compatible and featuring co-op play, Everybody Dance will feature competitive dance battles, a 20 player multiplayer mode and in-depth routine breakdowns. Sony aims to make its dance game stand out from the crowd by introducing a unique Dance Creator feature that will allow player to choreograph their own moves.
