God of War III Out Today!

Anthony Caiazzo's Avatar + Posted by Anthony Caiazzo on Mar 16, 2010 // Senior Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Fellow Spartans!

The wait is finally over! CHAOS has been unleashed nationwide as the highly anticipated God of War III releases on store shelves today. If you didn’t make it to the midnight launch events last night, make sure to call your store and get your copy fast. God of War III is set to take to the stage as the biggest entertainment launch event in PlayStation 3 history and will be remembered as one of the best action adventure titles of 2010. Now is your chance to take down the Gods of Olympus by wreaking havoc and spreading chaos through all of civilization. I’d like to especially thank our Santa Monica Studios for all their time, hard work, and energy in delivering this award winning video game. I’d also like to give a big thank you to all the fans who have stayed loyal throughout Kratos’ journey and continued to support all things God of War.

In celebration of today’s launch, I’d like to share with you our new trailer called “Chaos,” featuring kick-ass footage from the game.

In the End, There Will Be Only Chaos….

//Add Your Own

Sony is doing what no one thought would ever be possible – topping the greatest console in history, the PS2.

Even though the PS3 launched at DOUBLE the price of the PS2 and Wii, it is the third fastest selling console in history.

Sony has built their first party development studios into a force that makes Nintendo and Microsoft look like anemic jokes in comparison:

Sony: 21 first party development studios
Nintendo: 10 first party development studios
Microsoft: 3 first party development studios <- LOL! Fail…

The rate major AAA exclusives are coming out for the PS3 is making the PS2 and its greatest library of exclusives look weak in comparison.

The PS3 has so utterly graphically annihilated the 360 this gen that you aren't even allowed to talk about it anymore in gaming forums because it is considered bad taste to bring up the total graphical humiliation Sony has dished out to the wimpy and poorly designed Xbox 360.

Sony continues to embarrass Microsoft in online gaming:

Free online gaming for all
Dedicated servers for lagfree online play
Massive player counts like 256 for the godly MAG, 64 for R2, etc

vs

50 dollar a year online fees
Laggy P2P networking
And joke player counts like 8v8 for Halo3 and 5vs5 for Gears of War 2

Home has turned out to be a success beyond everyone’s wildest dreams with some 15 million people now part of the online world with massive amounts of content flooding in from Sony and game developers.

BluRay destroyed Microsoft and Toshiba’s garbage HD-DVD format and dumped it on the thrashheap of computing history. And BluRay continues to out pace the VHS to DVD transition.

And this brutal and epic masterpiece is on its way here to our homes today.

My god Sony are you on fire this gen.

I’m having issues when playing, my Dualshock 3 is not responding properly, it was ffine last night and works perfect on other games. It is not responding to holding X so no icarus wings, and R1 is having trouble. BOTH of my dualshock 3’s are doing the exact thing and ONLY in my Ultimate GOW3.

Back to FFXIII… (Never thought that would be a consolation lol)

a little over 2 hours into the game and I already needed a change of pants about twice in that first boss alone! I stopped while battling the second boss(not saying any spoilers for those who have yet to play it so I wont say the order of bosses). Went to the midnight release, got my UE quick, I was second in line and I also bought the special edition strategy guide even though im probably never gonna use it just because its badass. Gonna go play a bit later, fantastic game and im just beginning!!!

WOW jus WOW!!! Is this real? are these really animations??? I saw and played Uncharted 2 and was blown away…still is! But my gosh Santa Monica Studios,.. (by the way, “Monica” is my moms name..lol) you took it another level of detail.

What’s wrong with you people!???

Cannot wait to pick this game up soon! The way Stig mentioned it in an interview, this game won’t have much filler to make the people who think “game length = $ value”, so that makes me extremely happy.

Also, I read “Dedicated servers for lagfree online play” earlier. If I remember correctly, I recall an article saying Sony and MS both have around the same amount of games that use dedicated servers. Not trying to sound like an ass or whatnot, just curious. I own all of the “current” consoles and love them all. Only thing I have against Sony is they’re releasing way too many games I want to own in such a short period of time. Poor wallet… :(

Spike called my house for the casting but the special airing at 1138PM last night was sick! Glad I didnt participate as I would have gotten hurt and embarrased on national tv! Congratulations to the winners. Hades battle looked awesome! FIGHT! SPARTANS UNITE!

Dear Playstation, can you get the guys in charge of the official site to fix the download of trilogy and blood and metal for the UE buyers, many of us cannot download them and now our codes are rendered useless

@FredPunella

LOL.LOL.LOL.

Uh, 1 GOW game that looks pretty is hardly topping the PS2. PS2 had a massive selection of games to choose from at this point in the life cycle. The Ps3 is doing fine, but it isn’t the PS2.

Also WTH at the fanboy comparison.
