Reminder: God of War III GDC San Francisco Meetup is Tomorrow!

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Mar 09, 2010 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Not like we thought it slipped your mind, but if you’re in the San Francisco Bay area tomorrow, you’re invited to come celebrate the launch of God of War III!

And if you have the means to get here, do it – we have a history of treating our fans to extremely good times. And tomorrow is no exception as you’ll have many chances to win great PlayStation games and prizes, get autographs from members of the development team, create your own God of War III box, and much more. So whatever the means – train, plane, car, bike, rollerblades, horse, camel – get here tomorrow! There’s only one God of War III event and we don’t want you to miss it (In all seriousness, if you arrive on a camel, you’re getting something incredibly cool).

God of War meetup event

Check out our initial post for all the fine details, but here’s a quick recap. We’ve got a couple HUNDRED tickets for our very special community (that’s you!) to get you in to the amazing and mega-exclusive God of War III event, where you’ll get to go hands-on with the final version of God of War III, enjoy some epic food and hospitality, and watch a still-secret-but-guaranteed-to-be-super-awesome band perform.

And all you need to do is show up. But we HIGHLY recommend arriving early. The hands-on event doesn’t start until 7pm – so we’re setting up a community-only pre-event party that goes on all day. What does that entail? Free food from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m, awesome schwag giveaways and raffles, free wi-fi (In the words of Triumph, “For you to Tweet on!”), the chance to put yourself on the God of War III box, autographs and more! So if you haven’t already signed up, RSVP on our Facebook Page!

Important Details:

  • The hands-on event goes from 7-10pm on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at the SF Concourse Exhibition Center. The pre-party meet-up begins at noon (you’ll see our tent in venue’s parking lot). Directions here. Don’t even think of strolling up at 6.30pm – you ain’t getting in!
  • Keep in mind that you must be 21 or older to get into evening hands-on event, but anyone 18+ (or with their parent/guardian) can come to the all-day meetup. ID *will* be checked!
  • Parking is rough in the area, so try to take BART or Caltrain – both very close to venue.
  • Once you’re in, you’re in — no ins and outs (don’t worry, we will have bathrooms). Unless of course you don’t want to stick around for the amazingly awesome hands-on event at 7pm. Then you’re free to leave at will…but you’re making a HUGE mistake!
  • You must RSVP via this Facebook event invite
  • Be sure to leave your replica Blades of Chaos at home
  • You might wanna think about bringing your PSP ;-)

The End Begins at GDC

Hi There Chris. I’m a huge fan of the God Of War series & I’ll be buying the region 3 version of God Of War 3(live in Malaysia), but all I want to know if the game is censored or not in region 3. I know that this has got nothing at all to do with this topic here but I’ve been finding so hard for an answer to my question but all get is very hazy answers. So I guess this is the best place to ask. I seriously don’t wanna play a scaled down GoW3 so it will be an absolutely relief if I know the game is censored or not.Thanks a lot.

btw, Have fun at GDC Meetup guys!

Well I won’t be able to drive up for the meet but I will be getting God of War III since its being released on my B-day. Yes, I really appreciate that all of you at SCE did this just for me.

BTW, way back in developer interviews I asked a question about how accessible is the story for those who have never played GoW and GoW2. Thank you Jeff for asking the question. Though effort was made to make the story clear to newcomers an even better response was the release the GoW Collection. Yes, I know you released it just for people like me. Great idea, btw.

Since I just came on board with PS3 I would not have otherwise had a convenient way of catching up on the series. Now I’m a seasoned GoW fan and ready for the bloody end. SCE really went out their way to make me feel special. lol.

P.S. so then can we get a Team ICO collection for the release of Last Guardian? Hmmm…
