New Releases This Week for PS3 (2/22/11)

Some big new releases out this week for PlayStation 3. The main new game out in stores is Killzone 3, the sequel to one of the biggest PS3 games of '09. Other games out include Bulletstorm; an over-the-top first-person shooter with signature “skill shots" that reward players for taking out enemies in the most creative ways possible. De Blob 2, the sequel to the popular platform puzzle game, and Knights Contract which is an action adventure game developed by Game Republic.

New to PlayStation Network is a re-release of the vintage arcade game Space Ace, the science fiction shooter Alien Breed 3: Descent, and Days Of Thunder – Nascar Edition, which is a racer with characters from the 90’s film.  

Game of The Week goes to Killzone 3. Guerrilla Games has come a long way towards improving a lot of the faults with the second game. And although the story is still not quite up to the level of some of the other big first person shooters, Killzone 3 is one of the best looking games of this generation and has a very solid multiplayer.
