SAN FRANCISCO--Good news for gamers: The PlayStation 3 will hit stores Nov. 17 with 22 titles, including games from all leading publishers, such as Electronic Arts.
Kaz Hirai, president and chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, announced the launch titles at an event here to show off Sony's long-awaited new game console.
Among the titles are "Madden NFL '07" and the skateboarding favorite "Tony Hawk's Project 8." Sony fans have been concerned about developer support for PS3, but the roster of launch titles exceeds even Xbox 360's large roster of launch titles.
Sony said its first-party titles will cost $59.99. It also showed off a wireless controller, which will cost $49.99 and will have a 20-meter range and 30 hours of battery life, not to mention motion sensors.
