Description Like we have said, E3 news will be coming out more and more.  Well, Sony has announced several new titles for their systems and apparently it’s only a fraction of what they will be showing. We actually told you about a couple of these games almost a year ago. There are 3 new titles for the PS2 which are Shadow of the Colossus (formerly Wanda and the Colossus), Genji: Dawn of the Samurai and Neopets: The Darkest Faerie. There are also a few PSP titles see: MediEvil Resurrection, The Con and Neopets: Petpet Adventures—The Wand of Wishing.

“As we enter the holiday season for 2005, we are committed to offer a wide variety of content for both PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable that is both broad-appealing and cutting edge for the casual to most savvy gamer,” said Sharon Shapiro, senior director, promotions and sports marketing, SCEA. “At E3 this year, we will preview more than a dozen software titles that are published by Sony Computer Entertainment America and will be available before the year’s end.”

E3 2005 That’s right, y’all. The 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo is right around the corner, and this one is going to be huge. The Xbox 360 will be there in full effect, and we will be there when Microsoft presents the console to the press. Nintendo will finally let the Revolution out of the bag, unless they choose to not show it for fear that competitors will steal their ideas. They will also be bringing Link and Zelda to the party. Last, but not least, Sony is set to show their PlayStation 3, powered by the almighty Cell processor. These are the obvious E3 attractions, but there will be many more things happening during those three days. We want to know what you guys want to see us cover while we are down at the big show. Game developers will be there in full force. Anything you are interested in seeing us cover? Let us know, and we will do our best to oblige.


Yahoo PokerWhile I’m not the biggest poker player in the world, I do think this is the start of something that can prove to be very successful. At E3, Yahoo! Games is going to show their new poker game which will allow people accessing the service either from a PC or a mobile phone to play against each other. If Yahoo! decides to develop this technology, which makes perfect sense for them to do, we can expect to see even more of a blurring of the line between PC gaming and mobile gaming.

“Our goal at Yahoo! Games is to provide a dynamic, thriving online community that unites and connects gamers of all ages and tastes,” said Geoff Graber, general manager of Yahoo! Games.  “We’re excited to lead the industry in building the best multiplayer games and deliver a multiplayer mobile game, Yahoo! Poker, which lets people play friends anytime, anywhere and on any device.”

Full release after the jump.
