Sony lists first-party PS3 titles on Japanese website

There's a PS3 now?

The first batch of first-party PlayStation 3 titles has been confirmed by a listing on Sony's Japanese website, PlayStation.jp, with six titles being named for the next-generation system including new Everybody's Golf and Gran Turismo games.

None of the listings have been given confirmed dates, and all are marked as being working titles only - but this still represents the first time that Sony has gone this far in officially confirming games for the system, which is expected to launch later this year.

The six titles are Genji 2 (Action), Angel Rings (RPG), Monster Carnival (Action RPG), Everybody's Golf 5 (Sport), Gran Turismo Series (Racing) and The Eye of Judgement (genre TBA).

Sony studios outside Japan are also known to be working on titles for the PlayStation 3, with the best-known being the next-generation sequel to Killzone, which is being developed by SCEE's Guerrilla Games studio in Amsterdam.

Several third-parties have also announced projects for the system, including Konami - which showed off Metal Gear Solid 4 for the first time at the Tokyo Games Show last September - and Epic Games, which is developing a version of Unreal Tournament 2007 for the PS3.
