Sony Computer Entertainment has a Christmas line-up "to be proud of", UK managing director Ray Maguire has claimed.

Speaking to at the Games 3.0 conference in London earlier this week, Maguire said that "for the first time I can sit back and think, 'yeah we've got five super strong titles'.

Sony's headline Christmas 2008 titles include Insomniac's Resistance 2, Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet and Evolution's MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.

When asked how he thought the PS3's Christmas software line-up compares to the Xbox 360's, Maguire replied: "I think we've never been in a stronger situation. This is the first year for me that I can sit back and think, 'yeah we've got five super strong titles'. Some of them ground breaking by creating almost a new genre and the others starting to really use the strength of the Cell chip and the graphics. When I look at LittleBigPlanet, when I look at Resistance, when I look at MotorStorm, and then I look at things like Abba on SingStar, before we even get into Killzone next year, I think we've got a line-up really to be proud of."

Microsoft's headline Christmas Xbox 360 exclusive titles include Epic's Gears of War 2, Rare's Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Lionhead's Fable 2, iNiS' Lips and Krome Studios' Scene It? Box Office Smash.
