i thought he was lookin at the camera because of that mind blowing little factoid. 2 ps2’s just to run kratos’ footprint. Jeffs expression was like ‘did you hear that????’ purely insane. can’t wait. btw the gf is pumped about this too!



+ KIDamazin on March 24th, 2009 at 4:53 pm said:

Are they working on a demo?


+ Enforcer_X on March 24th, 2009 at 4:57 pm said:

I love when Jeff looks into the camera it makes me laugh!

This is what the PS Blog is all about, I LOVE IT! Hopefully we get some Naughty Dog interviews as the hype train rolls out with Uncharted 2.

+ bravo9zero on March 24th, 2009 at 5:31 pm said:

+ JPMCH on March 24th, 2009 at 5:35 pm said:

+ kiikooo on March 24th, 2009 at 5:45 pm said:

+ inveigle on March 24th, 2009 at 5:47 pm said:

I wasn’t really excited at first, but these interviews are growing on me! :D


+ Thrasher20 on March 24th, 2009 at 5:49 pm said:

Yayuh! Another great interview :)

Off topic: I heard Firmware 2.70 is coming this week.


+ Berae on March 24th, 2009 at 6:02 pm said:

Nice interview thanks again

More im hearing about this game more i want it now!! XD ok ill wait


+ JKC31 on March 24th, 2009 at 7:06 pm said:

Kind of weird to already have this information and getting it now again. Then saving what you think is the most exciting part for last for a game that looks to be a year out.

15watt light bulb from a hundred miles away?


+ jehanzeb on March 24th, 2009 at 7:12 pm said:

Hi Jeff, is there any chance that we will be able to see the demo that was shown to you guys anytime soon? (by soon i mean today/tomorrow:P)


+ coppi6976 on March 24th, 2009 at 7:17 pm said:

Keep it up Jeff great interview. I cant wait for this game. so no public vids of gow3?


+ CrimsonFox13 on March 24th, 2009 at 7:23 pm said:

Haha, these interviews are great. I wasn’t terribly interested in this game before, but now it’s become a near must-have title.


+ Sparta300 on March 24th, 2009 at 7:43 pm said:

omg i cant wait!!


+ naughtyco on March 24th, 2009 at 7:45 pm said:

You are the worst interviewer I’ve ever heard.

You are doing a disservice to the creators. We are not 10 years old. Ask about character development, moral ambiguity vs. Krato’s struggle w/ his concise…not if the art director watched Friday the 13th for violent references.

How do you have a job?


+ Saigon1914 on March 24th, 2009 at 8:05 pm said:

The one thing i would like to know, how deep is the story line. I think I should be more clear, how long do you plan the game to be. Is it going to be 20hrs straight through and with side missions 30hrs.

Has it been decided what size of medium you will be using. 25gb or 50 gb or higher.

What new creatures were designed specificly for the 3rd installment.

Is there anything coming back from the first game.


+ KSPRAYDAD on March 24th, 2009 at 8:32 pm said:


New here?

Maybe he has the ‘job’ because he has some CLASS.


+ KSPRAYDAD on March 24th, 2009 at 8:35 pm said:

Jeff…I don’t have a passport..how can I convince you to send me a GDC blog lounge Tshirt?


+ IMamaBear on March 24th, 2009 at 8:46 pm said:

Dead Space is great!


+ RurouniSaiya-jin on March 24th, 2009 at 9:03 pm said:

Great interview. I found the talk about gore part interesting. He certainly has a good taste in games.


+ Xulap on March 24th, 2009 at 9:38 pm said:

lol, So I’m not the online crept out by when Jeff looks to the camera at 1:56.

Jeff, don’t do that again for humanity’s sake!


+ Airwalkinman17 on March 24th, 2009 at 9:52 pm said:

I try to stay away from previews just so that I don’t get many spoilers before the game is released. But I just can’t help but watch these videos. ARGH!!!


+ BigPoppaB on March 24th, 2009 at 11:24 pm said:

great interview… jeff you shouldn’t look at the camera during interview !!! haha


+ VenomXv on March 25th, 2009 at 12:25 am said:

I can’t wait for this game. The trailer is epic.


+ D_David_US on March 25th, 2009 at 12:46 am said:

Come on Jeff. I think you’re torturing us. I’m really Full hyped about this one. I love my PS3.


+ barnaclejoe on March 25th, 2009 at 1:13 am said:

wow, that was a REALLY great interview, I really can’t wait to get this game now.


+ DominicanNinja on March 25th, 2009 at 1:25 am said:

i hope the game is longer or as long as the second one. i been waitin so long for this game and i would b really dissapointed. id still buy it thou lol.


+ Staticneuron on March 25th, 2009 at 2:44 am said:

I find it awesome how much the internal tea,s seem to talk to each other and respect each other. I consider all of the studios extremely talented, so I can just imagine the greatness that comes about when they share and converse.


+ VenomUK on March 25th, 2009 at 3:00 am said:

Great interview revealing the depth of work going into development of God of War III.

@34 Jeff when you look AT the camera at 1:56
I actually thought you were looking THROUGH the camera. It reminded me of Japanese horror movie Ringu… But then you switched back to normal Jeff!


+ haz360 on March 25th, 2009 at 3:59 am said:

Inspiration from Dead Space, Uncharted and Killzone? Not a bad list of games to take influences from!


+ Farhad91 on March 25th, 2009 at 4:44 am said:



+ Modster79 on March 25th, 2009 at 6:06 am said:

these interviews are awesome Jeff, really interesting to watch, keep em’ coming!

and a little hint…it’ll be awesome if you can talk to the Gran Turismo guys ;)


+ Lifewish on March 25th, 2009 at 6:11 am said:

another good interview.


+ Randy_Rhoads on March 25th, 2009 at 6:17 am said:

Jeff is there any tentative date for GOW3? at least can you tell you if it will be out in the last quarter of this year?
Thanks a lot for your patience reading all us, fans of God of war :)


+ ShtayimPac on March 25th, 2009 at 6:20 am said:

Can someone please ellaborate on the tech-side?

Memory footprints?
50 dynamic lights per vertacy?


+ harlemzkid on March 25th, 2009 at 7:12 am said:

this game will be sweet.. a must HAVE..


+ WYO1016 on March 25th, 2009 at 8:53 am said:

Totally off subject, Jeff, but it is about an awesome game at GDC we all want to know about. Why is IGN running stories about Fat Princess and you guys aren’t? I wouldn’t be so intrigued if the didn’t play it IN THE BLOG LOUNGE!!! What the crap man?


+ stevesap on March 25th, 2009 at 9:38 am said:

you know what i came to my senses and i’m not really worried if it comes out later this year or even april 2010. i just want it to one of the best games to have ever come out. so please don’t rush this game and make a gory masterpiece!


+ GameDreamer on March 25th, 2009 at 10:05 am said:

It’s looking incredible. Can’t wait!


+ dehumanizer_666 on March 25th, 2009 at 12:14 pm said:

Man i can’t wait to get GoW3. Sony puts a smile on my face. I’m glad i have a PS3


+ lonewolf1994 on March 25th, 2009 at 12:37 pm said:

+ Midgetguy on March 25th, 2009 at 4:03 pm said:

I really enjoyed this interview!

Thanks Jeff, and thanks Ken!


+ Blaiyan on March 26th, 2009 at 6:15 am said:

Just give me a 2009 release date so I can get an end to all the yapping from the 2010 prolongers.


+ DarkCollaring on March 26th, 2009 at 12:45 pm said:

So.. GOW3 has been in the works for about 4 years ? :)


+ Grande102 on March 30th, 2009 at 6:20 pm said:
