PS3 has Xmas line-up to be "proud of" says Maguire

Sony Computer Entertainment UK Managing Director Ray Maguire has declared that the company has a Christmas software line-up “to be proud of.”

The Tokyo-based platform holder has a number of eagerly awaited software releases in the pipeline this holiday season for PlayStation 3, including the likes of Resistance 2 from Insomniac Games, Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet and Evolution Studios’ MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.

“I think we’ve never been in a stronger situation. This is the first year for me that I can sit back and think, ‘yeah we’ve got five super strong titles’. Some of them ground breaking by creating almost a new genre and the others starting to really use the strength of the Cell chip and the graphics,” Maguire told, when asked how the PS3’s line-up compares to Microsoft’s efforts with the Xbox 360.

“When I look at LittleBigPlanet, when I look at Resistance, when I look at MotorStorm, and then I look at things like Abba on SingStar, before we even get into Killzone next year, I think we’ve got a line-up really to be proud of."
