I think is a good boxart, but i would have love it if your had gone with the same style as the past two.

We all know who Kratos is, but having just his left eye zoomed in is not that great IMO. I had hoped that the boxart would be as epic as the game.

But anyways, I love this franchise, so I will be buying it day one!

God of War 3 = GOTY 2010

Glad I waited to buy the Collection. Can I get answer on the Challenge Arenas is it gonna be realeased afterward as DLC or is your only way to get it is by getting Ultimate Edition?

Question. Will you be able to watch the GoW
documentary without it spoiling anything related to GoWIII, or is it a better idea to watch the documentary after you beat the game?

    The Unearthing the Legend documentary will spoil key moments in God of War and God of War II, but it won\’t spoil anything in God of War III.

So the documentary is a download from the store instead of being on a blu ray disc? Kind of disappointing… ah well, it’s still pre-ordered and March 16th cannot come fast enough!

so does the God of War III Ultimate Edition have the same box art as the regular?

@6 kristophergrin
Thank the gods?
You should be thanking Kratos because he is about to slaughter the gods.


23

+ akara1 on January 28th, 2010 at 9:13 am said:

I agree with colonel007
The boxart is ok but for a trilogy of the God of War series it looks somehow different and doesn’t really fit.

I also think that the darker coverart on the picture of the Ultimate Edition looks a bit better.

Nevertheless I’m glad that it will contain a flip-cover. A good decision Sony^^

“God of War Collection is now ONLY $29.99.”

Wow. I feel like I just got screwed by Sony again (first time was my 60GB got YLOD). Last time I buy anything like that again when it first comes out.

Do you know the size of that box? I might have some issues with customs :(

+ terribledeli on January 28th, 2010 at 9:26 am said:

Gamestop.com has the collection down to $30 ($25 used), so it’s safe to say the price drop is in effect.

As for people that will complain, don’t be an early adopter next time.

Anyone with any slight marketing background knew Sony would drop the price to boost sales prior to God of War 3.

+ k4shmoney623 on January 28th, 2010 at 9:28 am said:

I think I’ll be upgrading my pre-order to the Ultimate Edition because I just realized I might not want to open it because I’m too busy staring at it in amazement.

*Runs to go finish God of War II for the 2nd time and get that platinum trophy!*

@Eric

I’m just as psyched as anyone about GOW III and have my collection with the demo downloaded onto my PS3. However, do you plan to release a Home Space, Personal Space and/or and GOW III related items for PSHome? I think a lot of fans here would love to have some Kratos themed costumes and spaces.

+ dragonmagician on January 28th, 2010 at 9:33 am said:

Oh, the unofficial boxart (as stated in this blog) became the official boxart. I personally don’t like it, but as long as the game is good, i guess.

2 pieces of (semi-useful) information in a 10 day span…and this is what you consider ending an information drought? Good luck with actually trying market this game. You can’t even market to the hardcore PSBlog reader, let alone the mass market.

that box art is really lame,compared to the other 2 (3 if you count the PSP game) it’s also rather anticlimactic
