The company plans to bet it all on its software lineup and claims that the PlayStation 3 has the best selection of games from “any PlayStation generation”. The statement came right from Patrick Seybold, director of corporate communications at Sony Computer Entertainment America, so unless the Marketing department doesn’t get very persuasive in the very near future, do consider a change of Christmas shopping plans:

"As previously discussed we aren’t making any price moves this holiday season. In my opinion, we have the best line up of any PlayStation generation going into this holiday and consumers will be very receptive to it."

"With PS3 titles for this including Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet, SOCOM, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift to name but a few of our multiple exclusives, combined with PlayStation Home and increasing multimedia features for the hardware, we expect to have continued momentum going into and beyond this holiday season," he added.

Will this lineup be enough to keep PlayStation 3 floating above the Xbox 360? Furthermore, is the Sony console still above the Microsoft one? Time (and NPD’s sales data) will tell very soon.
