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.

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.
