Sony wants you to check out their Holiday Lineup

Scroll down to check out the press release.
Today we have some information regarding Sony's releases for this holiday season. A lot of this information you probably already know, but here it all is for the sake of quick reference. Of course, some titles (like Uncharted 3) have already been released and we know everyone is excited for them. The thing that makes me raise an eyebrow most is Sony's 3D gaming monitor. While this hardware was announced back at E3, we have not heard much about it since then. The package, which includes a game, cable and pair of glasses, is supposed to be a quick way for gamers to be HD/3D ready and allow 2-player "split-screen" by actually having the two players see something different on the screen depending on the angle they are sitting at. A very interesting idea, but I would really have to see it in action before thinking of committing that much money towards one.

On the other hand, we also see Sony releasing more games for the Move peripheral, which is good. I'm glad the Move was not quickly forgotten, although we are still waiting to see what truly worthwhile games developers will release for it. Look below for the press release.
