Editor's Note: 21 titles started a revolution. It's hard to believe how far Sony gamers have come in the years since the launch of the PS3. While most of these games are either dirt cheap or unavailable now, it's interesting to look back and consider how little we knew about them at this stage in the game. Which ones would go on to form the public opinion of the PS3. Some of these franchises (Call of Duty, NBA 2K, Need For Speed) are still going, while others made their mark before they disappeared (Resistance, F.E.A.R.). Either way, it's fascinating to consider how far we've come in the world of the PlayStation and look back on a time before we knew where we'd go.

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has finally announced its PS3's launch titles. While no dates have been confirmed, all of these games are to be released during the PS3's "launch window" meaning on or around the launch date of the actual PS3, November 17th.

21 first and third-party PS3 titles will be available for the holidays. The launch catalog encompasses the most popular game genres, with the noticeable exception of a fighting game. Sony states that most of the titles are expected to retail under $60.

“Our line-up of PS3 games that will be available through the holidays is unprecedented in terms of volume, variety and innovation, surpassing any previous competitive launch catalog and even our own original offerings for other PlayStation platforms,” said Kaz Hirai, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. “We are pioneering a new era of true next-generation gaming through such titles as Resistance: Fall of Man, a visually arresting game that takes advantage of the large storage capacity and exceptional visual clarity offered by Blu-ray Disc (BD), and NBA 07, running at full 1080p for the highest resolution image possible, creating hyper-realistic characters and gameplay never seen before.”
