God Of War 3

Featuring context sensitive battle commands, stunning animation, and one of the roughest, toughest protagonists to ever grace the flickering screen, GOW3 has it all.

This time, Kratos is personally cheesed off by the Gods themselves and decides to bring the fight to their doorstep. Battle through city streets, ancient temples, and even Hades itself while using your arsenal of amazing weapons and martial arts training.  Bloody, frantic, and totally engaging: God Of War 3 is definitely one of the top new games for the PS3.

Hardcore gamers won't be able to resist this amazing game. What makes it even better for PS3 fans? It is exclusive to their system, so the fun is alllll theirs.

Little Big Planet 2

Little Big Planet 2 is one of the most anticipated PS3 games among fans right now.  Featuring side-scrolling graphics and an unprecedented level of creative control and user-to-user interactivity, this is one of the top new family games for the PlayStation 3.

Players will get a game with near infinite levels. There is a very dedicated fan community that constantly uploads new maps, levels, and characters to the internet.  With the Little Big Planet series, players are never out of new places to explore.  The best part?  It's all absolutely free.

This sequel to one of the best games of 2008 has all types of improvements that will make it one of the hottest Christmas games of 2010.  Check it out today.

Final Fantasy XIII

One of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 games in years, Final Fantasy XIII finally appeared in 2010. Role playing fans will love this epic story featuring magic, mystery, and epic battle against a corrupt government. Take on the role of beautiful Skye as she and her crew of rag-tag fighters battle monsters, villains, and maybe even a god or two.

Featuring a brilliant battle system, this is the first Final Fantasy game for a next gen system. Bring this home for Christmas 2010 so your family can experience the magic

This is a fairly complex game, featuring all types of secrets and hidden bosses, so consider purchasing a strategy guide alongside it.  It'll help the gamer in your life unlock everything and get the most out of this amazing new PS3 title.

Heavy Rain

Another one of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of 2010, Heavy Rain is unlike anything gamers have played. Featuring beautiful graphics, this is just as much a slasher movie as it is a game. Featuring four main players investigating the mysterious "Origami Killer", Heavy Rain is truly unique in that any of the main characters can die and the story just keeps going on. No continues, no game overs, the story just changes and the characters will have to deal with the tragic death.

Characters walk through a realistic world, alternating between their daily lives and the murder investigation.  The storyline can often hit unexpectedly emotional notes.  Bring a box of hankies.

Heavy Rain is a game for those who are looking for something new out of their game console. If you or someone you know is looking for an artistic, thoughtful game featuring amazingly lifelike graphics and a unique storyline right out of a detective novel, Heavy Rain is the game for you.

Madden 11

Sports fans will be thrilled to have the latest and greatest Madden football game this year.  Featuring improved controls to ensure that even new players are able to get into what was once an exceedingly complicated game, Madden 11 has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate digital football experience.

If you know a sports fan who also happens to be a gamer, this will be the perfect gift for them over the holiday season.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

It wouldn't be Christmas without another big Call of Duty release.  As always, this latest installment of the now classic series will be one of the top PS3 games of 2010.  Featuring all the runnin', gunnin', and multi-player action that COD games are famous for, Black Ops is sure to be a hit.

This time, players get to involve themselves in the Cold War era struggle.  Master new weapons, new levels, and see the traditionally impressive Call of Duty storyline play out right before your eyes.

COD: Black Ops Trailer

Super Street Fighter 4

Another top new PS3 title for Christmas 2010 is Super Street Fighter 4.  Featuring top of the line two player fighting action, SSF4 will be any fighting game fans dream this year.  All of your old favorites return from the first iteration, joined by old favorites from Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 3, and some brand new characters!

If you're already a proud owner of Super Street Fighter 4, why not up your game and buy either a new fight pad or a joystick?
