2011 is shaping up to be a great year for gaming, and the folks over at the PlayStation.Blog have compiled a list of 20 games coming exclusively to the PS3 this year. The list includes PSN titles, Move-capable games and some great first party releases that we have all been looking forward to. There are a few titles in particular that I am looking forward to, so after the jump you’ll find my top 5 picks (in no particular order) for PS3 exclusives for 2011!

 

LittleBigPlanet 2

First off the rank is of course LittleBigPlanet 2, the highly anticipated sequel to Media Molecule’s smash hit platformer LittleBigPlanet (funnily enough). After the phenomenal success of both the original PS3 version, and the subsequent PSP version, Media Molecule have returned to create something even more impressive. This game looks to be another epic success like its predecessor, especially with the new level creation elements which are sure to please the massive community of loyal LBP players. These will basically allow the creation of any genre of game, from first-person shooters to arcade-style action games, and many more. LittleBigPlanet 2 will definitely be fun and addictive, but best of all it’s great for the whole family.

LittleBigPlanet 2 launches in Australia on the 20th of January.

 

Killzone 3

The newest instalment in the Killzone series is one of Sony’s flagship 3D games (along with Gran Turismo 5 and MotorStorm Apocalyse), and it is also going to include support for the new PlayStation Move Sharpshooter accessory. The story will pick up from the end of Killzone 2, with the player continuing in the boots of the series’ main protagonist ISA Sergeant Sev on the homeworld of the Helghast. Developer Guerrilla Games have improved the story and dialogue compared to the previous titles, and have improved gameplay elements with the inclusion of destructible environments, and a new close combat system including brutal attacks and combos. This game looks fantastic and will definitely be worth picking up for any hardcore gamer.

Killzone 3 is slated for an Australian release on the 24th of February.

 

Sorcery

Now this is a title I’m extremely excited about. I have been waiting for this innovative new fantasy adventure title to hit since Sorcery was first featured during Sony’s PlayStation Move unveiling at E3 2010. It has no solid release date at this point, despite being originally slated for a second quarter release, but here’s hoping that means they are going to release a really polished game. You will take on the role of a sorcerer’s apprentice with over 12 upgradeable spells to master so that you can defeat the evil Nightmare Queen and her foul minions in order to save the land. Spells will be cast and potions will be brewed using gestures of the Move controller on your epic journey to save the Faerie Kingdom!

Sorcery has no confirmed release date.
