- Crysis 2 to 'Max Out' The Playstation 3 -
In an interview with Gamasutra, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli
denied the Sony assertion that it would take developers years to
maximize the potential of the PS3, with Hirai stating that "We don't
provide the 'easy to program for' console that [developers] want,
because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take
advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question
is what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?" Talking
in the wake of the announcement that EA would be publishing Crysis 2,
Yerli said that "The interesting thing is we did run a performance
analysis on the PS3 devkit, and you know the funny thing is the
occupation on all the CPUs, the Cell and the GPUs, is pretty much
– the needle is at the limit."
- God of War 3 Preview (PS3) - PS3.IGN has as hands-on preview of

biggest and most anticipated titles. Gamers have been waiting for a
couple years now to see how Kratos' story ends, and fortunately we
won't have to wait too much longer as it'll be out in March 2010. Yes,
we have to wait until next year, but it's only nine months away."
