I'm also really looking forward to this one. Loved the first one and everything about the second one seems to surpass the original. Visuals, AI, gameplay, everything. Not much is known yet so I can't wait to learn more.
'09 is shaping up to be great for the PS3. Killzone 2, God of War 3, Uncharted 2, maybe Gran Turismo 5? Probably not. There are loads more, but I'm short on time right now and I can't list them all.
