God of War III Info Drought Ends Now

It’s not often that buzz builds behind a news embargo, but judging by comments on the Blog, it seems a lot of you have been looking forward to hearing more about God of War III today. I’m happy to report that with the release of these screens and impressions of the game from last month’s New York preview event, you’ll be seeing GoW III updates much more frequently.

Gaia01 Gaia07

Back to last months’ event, we’ve been dying to share what we saw since we first laid eyes on this Titan-riding, boss-fighting segment of the game. We could tell you how awesome it looks (and plays), how insane the realtime rendering is, how huge the Titans and boss(es) are, but I’m sure you’d rather hear it from more impartial sources such as Destructoid and IGN (look for impressions from many other sites to hit today as well).

Gaia03 Gaia04

If the wait until God of War III‘s March release seems unbearable, I’m right there with you. We’re almost there, and we have MAG, White Knight Chronicles, and Heavy Rain to tide us over until then…

wow, just looking at Gaia. mind boggling

i wonder tho, is Kratos turning his back on the Titans? im just confused. i know he asked for the help of the Titans to end the war between them and the gods, but i dont know.

if your playing your ps3 on a non-hd tv….make the transition before this game come out..

Amazing screenshots, and good to hear that we’ll be seeing GoW III updates much more frequently.

And what about some updates on the Motion Controller Jeff, I really liked those videos that showed in September. Any idea when we are going to hear something new about it? Spring is just around the corner, you know? :)

The demo looks great and the images look great. The only issue I have is with the animations on the creatures. They all do the same animations at the same time. When they get hit they all go to the same hit state at the same time. When they run they all run the same. Thats something that Uncharted got right. I guess I’m just being picky lol! I’ll own this first day.

*Answering your EU question.*

Yes. In a sense. URL provided.
It has “GoW collection” added to the package.

Hi Jeff, will God of War III: Ultimate Trilogy Edition be sold in Canada and the US or is that an EU exclusive?

“To kick off the end of the drought, why don’t you divulge to us when and where the trailer will air.”

If you know who the HipHopGamer is he thinks it will be during the Superbowl. If so it sounds like a great idea to me. That would get a lot of attention.

Hey these screens are great :D
Also to whoever runs the Playstation Blog: The Playstation Conversation section has not been updated in about a month, but I click on there and and it goes to the other page where it shows that you have been updating it. So something is not correct there, it does not seem to be translating to the blog itself.

Those new screens look really awesome, but honestly some people hiped it up to be the insanely mindblowing and while it does look amazing and i love the GOW series, but i gotta be real here, I think Uncharted 2 graphics still look better, The jungles in uncharted look WOW! Hopefully they can get it better by the time it comes out, again not saying they dont look great, because the definitely do, im just saying that when compared to uncharted 2, so far its not looking better, although perhaps we need to see it in motion *hint, hint*. Looks insane in terms of gameplay though, cant wait!

This game is one of the reasons I own a PS3, so glad I didn’t wait and got one in 2008 though.
And happily my friend is not going to be able to resist this game and finally pick up a PS3 as well…finally.

God of War III will be absolutely EPIC.
Look forward to the updates and hopefully some interviews with the Santa Monica crew!

PS3 FTW.
=D

I hope you guys are considering another “Uncharted 2″-type launch event :) Having attended the GoW2 launch at the deeply-missed PlayStation Store at the Metreon, there would be some nice continuity at being able to be at the GoW3 launch

Jeff: Please tell Santa Monica team that they are the greatest devs in history, amongo with Naughty Dog and… well every first party, although SSM is in first place for me. Also, please tell them to make the most epic boxart ever in videogames! The boxart leaked in gametrailers is great, but maybe thy can improvite more so

Thanks! :D

Please release limited edition PS3 Slim God Of War custom themed bundle.I still have my launch 60GB PS3 that runs great and has been upgraded with a 320GB hard drive. But I need another PS3 for my room. The sooner Sony announces a limited edition bundle the better we all will be. I also read that Stig Asmussen wants a 3D patch to be released in the future for this game. God Of War III in 1080P 3D OMFG !

We are looking forward to see new video of gow3.

+ Gunwing on January 18th, 2010 at 12:01 pm said:

And hardcore PS3 fans last year at E3 were upset because it looked like a first generation Box game….. now it looks almost as good as Uncharted! WOW! JUST WOW! Glad I have a PS3 right now……

Also will we get info on new gear/weapons for Kratos, as well as if it will have co-op mode? There was a rumor that it would.


87

+ Blkant on January 18th, 2010 at 12:05 pm said:

Is this a demo we will also be seeing by any chance or what exactly is actually planned in terms of letting us try the game?

Besides the E3 demo we experience through the GoW Collection, which was fun but I want more…

+ Chaos_Bladez on January 18th, 2010 at 12:10 pm said:

Thanks Jeff but I’m refraining from any footage or screens. I like finding it out by myself. It worked very well with Uncharted 2 and Ratchet ACiT.

Please Jeff,

I would love for you guys to bundle this game with a God of War 3 PS3 design (like the one for FF13) and add as well a God of War 3 dynamic theme.

Sincerely,

I’m glad that your releasing gameplay pictures for God of War III but i think that you shouldn’t release them that often. I love your writing Jeff but I think if we see not as much gameplay footage then it would be alot more enjoyable because we wouldnt know what to expect!

@Jeff Rubenstein – Good morning there Jeff. I’m writing in hopes that you’ll read this. Don’t know how else to contact you. You were following me on Twitter at 1 point (Skunka), guess you took me off. MAG event in Vegas was great! I’ve attended all the events in the general LA area in the past year. Keep up the great work your doing in involving the PlayStation community! My question is a simple; Concerning the free copy of MAG your sending us the people who attended, I just did a change of address. If you are shipping through USPS, no worries my mail is being forwarded. But if your using FedEx or UPS, can I give you my new home address? Contact my through PSN I guess (I use “Skunka” as my alias in all Internet sites & online ID’s, PSN & Xbox). As proof & for you to be able to cross reference I’ll provide you with my old address I entered on your assistants laptop (I forgot the brunettes name). Or any other idea you can up with I would greatly appreciate. Thanks for your time Jeff.
