Gamescom: PS3 titles Rain, Puppeteer and Until Dawn prove SCE commitment to original titles

Vita may have been about the big brands at Gamescom this week, but PS3 was almost the exact opposite - with Sony announcing even more new IP during its press conference.

Joining the already announced new IP of Beyond, Last of Us and Wonderbook were there new games from Sony's Japanese studios – Puppeteer, Rain and Until Dawn.

"PlayStation has a history of delivering the unexpected both in our software and in our hardware," said Sony Europe president Jim Ryan. "We will continue to do that."

PS3 is seven years old in the US and Japan this year, and Sony will be hoping that by continuing to develop new concepts and original ideas, it can help extend the console lifecycle and keep sales of PS3 steady ahead of the inevitable PS4.
