God of War Collection Spartan Army Sweepstakes

William Weissbaum's Avatar + Posted by William Weissbaum on Nov 24, 2009 // Production Coordinator

In celebration of the recently released God of War Collection, and to show our continued support of true God of War fans, we’ve put together an incredible sweepstakes exclusively for the God of War Spartan Army. After all, it was the fans that convinced us to offer the God of War and God of War II experience in stunning HD on the PS3.

Now onto the prizes!

One Grand Prize: The Grand Prize winner will receive an autographed “Gold” disc (a first pressing of the game created when the assets were finalized and reached “Gold” status. These copies rarely reach the public.), exclusive artwork created and signed by a God of War team member, a Limited Edition Kratos T-shirt, and a never before released Limited Edition 10” Figurine!

God of War Statue

Five First Place Prizes: A copy of God of War Collection signed by the Development Team

Kratos T-Shirt

To enter the sweepstakes simply go to the ‘Sign Up’ page within www.godofwar.com and enter your email address and date of birth — that’s it! If you’re already a Spartan Army member, don’t worry, you’re already included in the sweepstakes. All we ask is that you’re over 18 and within the United States. Click here for sign up and rules on the sweepstakes.

Just be sure to enter it before December 11, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. We will announce the winners of the sweepstakes right here on the PlayStation Blog and www.godofwar.com on December 17, 2009!

I have been trying to get past that age verification page for the past 10 mins. I enter my date of birth and I get a message saying “This website is not intended for your age group.”

Well that would be all fine and dandy if I wasn’t 22! So this website isn’t intended for people over the age of 17? Pshh. Nonsense! Probably a malfunction somewhere. Or maybe this is Sony’s way of saying “You know you’re not going to win anyway, you never do. So don’t even bother trying.” =[

I wana win something! D= My boss is in love with Kratos. This would be wonderful to run in her face and add to my game collection (of course) >.<

Awesome contest. I’m already a member of the spartan army so i just hope i win something. But congrats to Sony and the Santa Monica studio on another amazing game, that i will be getting (ult. edition!!) coming this March. I’m just saying this here cause im guessing this is the only place you guys would really see it. p.s. I will be getting the collection too if i have money after xmas. I picked up the first god of war in 05 and re bought it two times due to a hurricane and a broken disc and i picked up the second game late because of said hurricane. So guys i would love to win at least a copy of the collection to replace the ugly big ass red greatest hits label on the current games i have. Games rock, i just don’t like the look of GH covers.

You know, the Canadians are getting awfully violent over these contests… Ironic, considering that they’re Canadians, I know, but perhaps it’s time to address this in a more direct fashion, because this continued silence really is getting ridiculous. It shouldn’t be hard to explain that there IS a reason, and it’s not just to piss off Canadians.

Lol a response from Sony? Are you kidding me? Havent been on the blog before?

What good is the blog if they listen to absolutely 0 feedback they get. This is a place for them to advertise their new products and that is it. I am just about done coming here altogether. Way to add facebook to the psn sony, cause you know people really wanted a PC oriented social site on a freaking console. Yah we’ve been begging for that for 3+ years. FAIL!!!!!

Pick up the ball Sony!! Put it in the hoop and make your damn fans happy. DO WHAT THEY ASK OF YOU or they won’t be buying another Sony product I can guarantee you that.

Hey Sony!

I just don’t get it! I was sure there is gonna be a GoW3 Demo Code in the Collection. But now I got mine and there is no Code inside! This is so unfaier… some friends of mine got one and I was … left out!

Why are you doint this? When you showed the Collection on the blog here for the first time you said, there is going to be a Demo!

I am really sad… :-(

Hey Sony!

I just got my God of War Collection and there is no GoW3 Demo Code inside it! That is totally unfair, because I know some of my friends got one and I am sure you wrote on this blog, that there is going to be a Code in the Collection.

I just don’t get this…

Why are you doint this to me?

@ Vengeance1138
Thanks for the response but there is no code in side the case or in the manual, the only code is for discount on the guide.

We are not the only people that are missing the GOW3 demo code see coments on the link below.

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2009/11/god-of-war-collection-launches-today-for-ps3/comment-page-3/#comments

@ Sony, it doesnt matter if the code is for US only as we both have US accounts.

I got the US GOW collection too and theres no GOW3 demo code in it! WTF!

you said there will be a GOW3 demo code in the collection!
http://blog.us.playstation.com/2009/09/god-of-war-iii-e3-2009-demo-included-in-god-of-war-collection/

I bought it because of the code, I already have the PS2 titels!

We europeans are again put aside .It is not fare .There is also GOW fans outside of the USA you know…
And this is off-topic ,but when we will see something new from GOW3?Yes there is answer to one of the post above:
“God of War III is really coming along, and as we get closer to our March launch date, you will definitely start seeing more of the game.”
But what you mean by “get closer to march”?March is 3 months away.How much closer to the release date we will start getting new videos/screens/info?
However…regards for making the best game ever and don’t forget all your fans :)

Cheddare (58)

I realize you’re angry, but don’t be so self-centered. “Don’t listen”? I have three-years’ worth of firmware updates, in-game XMB, an expanded Friend List, a slough of PSone titles, including Final Fantasy VII, trophies, and a hundred other little odds and ends. They may not be able to fix everything immediately, but I have PROOF that they listen to the fans. Let’s not blow this out of proportion- I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: a political border is NOT a simple entity to deal with. And they have no incentive to piss a people off- what the hell do you think that would accomplish? Put yourselves in their shoes and ask what benefit comes to “you” from giving Canadians the middle finger?

Yes please have a fan day so that I know the location of your office for when I get ready to lay the smack down on all of you. I’ve been through three copies of GOW collection and they all froze my system. @DZROMAGEN- He clearly states that the disc was exchanged. It’s not just a bad copy, there’s thousands of them. People on this blog, forums, and the internet are having freezing issues with the game. No offense but it would help to do some research on a situation before just commenting anything about it.

im with waypoetic , im pretty sure God of War is a very lucrative franchise for sony , if Ratchet and Clank is coming with its own action figures why one of the biggest sony franchises isnt ?? i mean no disrespect to Ratchet but Kratos is more iconic IMO , come on sony make it happen , add them inside pandora’s box as a surprise lol

@William Weisbaum

All this info is useless to Europeans if you’re going to release the game 4 months later than in America.

It should be released the same day or atleast same week!

You guys will lose a ton of sales if you decide to go the same route you went with GOW 1 and 2 being delayed several months in Europe.

+ GUNSOFDAPATRIOTS on November 25th, 2009 at 1:47 pm said:

Its Sad. Sony is a multi million dollar company with thousands of educated people working for them…. and they can’t even get a damn release date right.

WTF Sony

I can understand delaying smaller games and what not, but GOW is one of Sony’s biggest franchises and needs to be treated as such. Imagine if Gears of War got delayed in Europe on 360? Well… I cant even imagine such thing happening, because MS has enough business sense not to do that. Does Sony still think they’re in first place and can get away with this crap still?

How do you win this? Do you just sign in and wait for a message on your PS account? Or do you have to earn it by doing something like: being the first to unlock all trophies, send some artwork, or beat the game on the hardest difficulty setting.

PLZ respond by messaging me through my PS account thanx

+ barnaclejoe on November 25th, 2009 at 5:05 pm said:

What I want to indicate is that the reason Canadians feel compelled to constantly leave comments on articles like this is because we make up a large chunk of the readership, of the fanbase.

We excitedly come to the blog on a regular basis and expect to be treated with the same respect as any other fan.

We like being part of things, and entering contests, and winning things just as much as people from any other country.

I guess we just feel that because there are a lot of us, it isn’t entirely fair that we are so often completely disregarded when it comes to contests like these.

We love our God of War up here in Canada. :p

I suspect those who lash out in a more angry tone are those that felt ignored last time such a contest came and went, and probably several other times before then.

When nothing changes, you cannot help but feel insulted.

Now, personally, I get that it probably has something to do with legality. After all, contests are often limited to the United States from a lot of our favorite products.

But, how do some contests get around it? Why are those measures not taken more often? That is what I would like to know.
