After a sordid meeting in a dark alley, Sony has given us details of the PS3’s online service and also detail of the 21 launch titles that’ll be available to slathering gamers when the PS3 finally makes it to these shores in March.First up, launch titles are as follows:Resistance: Fall of Man NBA 07Genji: Days of the Blade Blazing Angels Squadrons of WWII Call of Duty 3 Marvel: Ultimate AllianceMobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire NBA 2K7Need For Speed CarbonNHL 2K7Fight Night Round 3The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion F.E.A.R Sonic the Hedgehog Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas Full Auto 2: Battlelines Madden NFL 07Ridge Racer 7Tony Hawk’s Project Untold Legends Dark KingdomA good-looking line up, we reckon, which should at least go some way to making up some of the ground the PS3 has already lost to Xbox 360 and will lose to Nintendo’s Wii.Continued…

On to the web service. Sony has announced that The PlayStation Network will allow PS3 owners to chat with each other (à la Xbox Live), download extras and browse the web. Basic membership to the service will be free but PS3 lovers will have to pay to download extra content, games and the like. Downloading a game is expected to cost around £10. Frag-mentalists The PlayStation Network UI is based on Sony’s delightfully intuitive PSP, so navigation is a cinch. There’s a Friends area, much like Xbox Live, where users can find online gaming buddies to frag senseless and send text messages to one another. The near-ubiquitous Opera browser makes yet another appearance in the PS3, although this is a bespoke version. Launch titles will cost around $60 in the US, although we can expect a hefty premium to be added to our titles when they arrive here six months later.
