OK fine, you talked me into it. I will upgrade to the Ultimate Edition. I was most likely going to anyway, but this was definitely my tipping point.

Also, PLEASE make that cover art a wallpaper…or better yet a dynamic theme with lightning flashes in the background. – HOTNESS!

It would be nice if we could get a taste of this music…ie: release one of the songs for us to hear.

Will this music be in the game anywhere?

More info pl0x, less secrecy.

You are all too young to remember Dream Theater; theres about half of a metal band on that soundtrack. Pathetic.

Wow that is a very metal album cover.

Wow, awesome. I love some of those bands and I’m a big God Of War fan. Can’t wait!

@34
If you don’t consider Opeth metal then you’re obviously using a definition you created yourself.

But, you know, keep talking down to random people on the internet about it. It shows character.

Really digging the idea of Metal bands like KSE and Opeth doing GoW music :)

But why is everything download code? Why can’t get get discs? Especially for the movie.

I have preboked this game!


42

+ Jeigh on December 21st, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

Actually, whether or not people feel like $60 is justified for a game alone, putting all of this stuff together, even if it adds $40 to the package, makes it seem almost unquestionably worth the purchase. Dammit, can someone loan me $100? (And by “loan” I mean “give”)

+ EXTREME_rkmn on December 21st, 2009 at 3:02 pm said:

Ummm wait, the FULL LENGTH movie documentary is a download, not a blu-ray? I was fine with everything else being download but that is [DELETED] Sony. That documentary belongs on a blu-ray disc, not as a download. That is ridiculous. Charge me 10 or 20 dollars more, I want that on a disc.


44

+ EXTREME_rkmn on December 21st, 2009 at 3:06 pm said:

For the record, I have the Ultimate Edition pre-ordered already, but come on. The documentary should be on a BLU-RAY
