PlayStation 3 fall lineup 'unmatched,' says Sony

LittleBigPlanet, Socom: Confrontation, Resistance 2 and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.

Sony Computer Entertainment president Jack Tretton is confident his first-party fall lineup has the skills to pay the bills.

"We're looking forward to a solid holiday season and are excited to offer a string of unmatched content to consumers in the coming months with LittleBigPlanet, Socom: Confrontation, Resistance 2, and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift," said Tretton, in response to August NPD numbers released Thursday.

By comparison, Microsoft's first-party lineup this fall includes Gears of War 2, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise, Fable 2, and Banjo and Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.

Nintendo, usually the strongest first-party competitor, will have little on tap this fall, partly due to the company having already released a majority of its high-profile franchises on Wii thus far. Notable games coming before the end of the year include Wario Land: Shake It, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Wii Music.

Regardless of who you feel has the best first-party lineup, the playing field levels quite a bit when considering multiplatform and third party exclusive games, of which there are many for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. So whatever system you own, this holiday is shaping up to be another memorable season for games.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
