The PlayStation 3 may be a few months off yet in Europe, but the third-party elements of the launch line-up are starting to take shape.
According to reports, Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty 3, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Tony Hawk's Project 8 will all be around for the European launch in March, just as they are in the US.
Other publishers have previously said to expect their launch line-ups to translate to Europe too, with Ubisoft in particular noting that Blazing Angels and Rainbow Six: Vegas will be released here whenever the PS3 materialises. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which Ubisoft co-publishes, will also appear then.
Other third-party titles on the cards for the US launch include Fight Night Round 3, Madden, Need For Speed Carbon and Tiger Woods from EA, Full Auto 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog from SEGA, NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7 from 2K Sports, and Ridge Racer 7 from Namco Bandai, although the latter is more likely to be published by Sony in Europe.
