God of War III Ultimate Edition

SCEA and Santa Monica Studios are thrilled to announce the first Ultimate Edition for God of War. Earlier this year, we polled a number of fans on what would make an awesome collector’s edition for God of War. Well, we took your advice and created something epic and filled it with premium collectible and exclusive digital content.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

The Ultimate Edition will feature the following:

Exclusive Collectibles
• High-End Sculpted Replica of Pandora’s Box
• Limited-Edition God of War Art Book featuring exclusive art, content and interviews

Exclusive Digital Content (Available via PlayStation Network voucher codes on day of launch)
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges
• Premium Kratos Skin – Dominus
• God of War: Unearthing the Legend Franchise Documentary – a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise
• God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War, II, and III scores from the game (mp3 digital download).
• God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War (mp3 digital download).

But it keeps getting better for the fans. Those that pre-order God of War III at select retailers will receive a voucher code for first access to download the God of War III E3 2009 Demo starting today, plus you will receive an exclusive downloadable skin from the following retailers: Amazon, GameCrazy and GameStop.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

And as a special thank you to our Spartan Army members who signed up on www.GodofWar.com, we are sending out a direct email today with one free voucher code to randomly selected fans. So, please make sure you check your email inbox over the weekend to see if you are one of the lucky ones to receive a voucher code allowing you to download this demo instantly from PlayStation Network! Remember, it’s a random selection and only a limited amount of vouchers are being sent out, so good luck.

Thanks again to all the fans for their continued support and enthusiasm for God of War. We are all excited to give you an early taste of what is expected to be one of the biggest games of 2010!

In The End There Will Be Only Chaos…..

Looks cool, but that digital download bs is lame as hell. When I get a soundtrack, I want the physical, high quality CD! Not some lossy mp3 files.

This was the first Ultimate edition for God of War. This is a sign of things to come where they put shiny beads and trinkets into the package to justify a higher price. However, it’s awesome for the CE/LE/UE “collectors”. Sony I got an idea, how about you charge another $10 for the UE edition and lower the price of the standard edition by $10 to make up for the fact that it’s overpriced.

Also can we get more games to the Greatest Hits status the competition is killing you on low priced games. It’s what made the Ps2 THE system to have. Great Games, Great Prices (TM).

@54 why would you need a link just type in amazon, gamestop, or gamecrazy.. i’m sure lots of other retailers will have this avail for pre-order also.

On another note this game is still set for a march 2010 release right guys?

I have to say, I NEVER buy a collectors, or ultimate, or rofflecopter edition of any game. MOstly because the bonuses are either a demo, a hat, or a keychain.

I am willing to make an exception here. TWO Full albums, an exclusive skin, documentary, and a whack of other stuff…this is obviously designed for the God of War hardcore, and that is me, and you are definitely doing this game justice with this.

I’ll be pre-ordering this ASAP.

Sooo massive epic collection! Definitely must-have for every Kratos fan! I think it should be cost around 80$, but what is the official price? When will be pre-orders available?

Demo vouchers for randomly gamers, I need change my pants! xD

OMFG! I’m almost afraid to ask about price. Either way, though, I’m pre-ordering this immediately!

+ BigBoss712 on October 30th, 2009 at 8:46 am said:

So its $100, that’s a little too much for me, while the pandora box looks real nice the other goodies don’t really justify the extra $40, maybe if you guys had included the blu-ray GOW1-2.
Game gonna be awesome but i will just go with the standard edition.


81

+ Tridon on October 30th, 2009 at 8:49 am said:

Never mind… just found it on EB Games’ Web site. It’s $99.99 US. That’ll be about $109.99 here in Canada. I’m pre-ordering this after work! =)

+ mixedkidbx on October 30th, 2009 at 8:55 am said:

I know im going to get a lot of heat from this but…

Im sorry this is a crappy LE which i will not be getting. Everything in there is almost just DLC. A costume (big deal) and some challenge areas, with a sound track and some Heavy metal crap which im still trying to figure out what Heavy metal has to do with GoW.

There’s no figurines, no maps, no little hint book (not like i even look at those, just saying). There’s nothing really memorable about that collection. Again most is DLC which after your done with the game has no purpose anymore. Soundtracks? Let’s be real. How many people actually go back and listen to soundtracks over and over and over. Documentary? Those are usually boring half way threw them and most wont watch more than once.

How about something that i could actually display which would remind me of the game. Heck everything from my GTA IV CE i still use. I love the bag that game with it. I use that lock box like crazy for things. They even had a key chain thing which i use.

You could have done so much better with this LE and you seriously want people to pay $100 for that. Sad… just sad.

“Also notice that this is the “FIRST” Ultimate Edition. Which leads me to believe they are planning more than one.”

I think you misread the article. It says first Ultimate Edition of God of War, not of God of War 3. They didn’t offer one for the other games. I doubt they plan to offer more than one Ultimate Edition of the game.

As for ordering this game, I checked out gamestop.com and it has it for $99.99 but says you can’t order it online. What’s with that? Is it a mistake? You can always preorder games on their site.
