The Best PS3 Sports Games For Christmas 2010

There are actually a very large number of new releases that fall into the category of sports games for the PlayStation 3 gaming console which have been brough out in time for Christmas 2010, largely down to the developer EA sports, a leading name and brand in this genre, who have recently released number 11 in several of their long running series. Because of that it has been quite a tough job to actually pick out a small number of games that I could include in a top list for this article. But despite the difficulties that I have experienced trying to choose between all of the great PS3 sports games available for this Christmas, there was an obvious place to start.

November 2010 saw the release of a new controller and physical gaming system for the PS3 which has been called the PlayStation move. If you are at all familiar with the Wii controller, which you can wave around and which records the movements you make with it so that you can use it as a tennis racket, play boxing games holding it in your fist and actually throwing punches to control the game, and so on. and just as has been the case with the Wii controller sports games are set to be some of the biggest beneficiaries of this new bit of kit, and in fact the most heavily promoted game which you can use with this new move controller seems to be ‘Sports Champions’, which is available in a bundle with the controller itself. Sports Champions features a range of sports like archery, table tennis and beach volleyball. This has got to be an easy choice for the top spot simply because it is the main game for this move controller which is sure to be very popular.

My personal favorite sport is soccer, so my second choice game – FIFA Soccer 11 – may well have been influenced by that, but it certainly is a great game no matter which sports you like the best. there has been significant improvements to the AI for this release so that players don’t get in each other way and so passes get picked out by the right person.

Other number 11 games that are well worth taking a look at include Madden NFL 11 with a new playcall system, MLB 11 and others. For basketball fans there is also NBA 2K11 which I haven’t played but which looks very good.
