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….

@46, assuming what you are saying is true, please by mindful of spoilers as you might have just ruined a big part of the game.

I have one complaint; I just got the U.E. of G.O.W. III, and I had reserved it at Gamestop, so I got a code for the Phantom of Chaos Skin as well. And I got acode from 7-Eleven for the Morpheus Skin.

The codes Worked for Morpheus Skin, Challenge of Exile Arenas/Dominus Skin and Unearthing the Legend.

But I am still getting the Error Message for the Phantom of Chaos Skin, ad the G.O.W. Trilogy and Blood and Metal Soundtracks.

When will tose two items be up, so my Two Codes for them can finally Function and I can have them?

Please let it be TODAY!

Dear PlayStation,
I would like for you to know what happened yesterday at my gamestop at Midnight Launch. There were 32 people in line, all (including myself) pre-ordered the ultimate edition. However, the guys at gamestop claimed they only had NINE (9) Ultimate Editions, when 32 people actually pre-ordered. I’m not saying anytng bad about sony or PlayStation, but from now on I will NEVER pre-order games from GameStop. NEVER. Wal-Mart is 1000x better than that BS they gave me. Oh-& i cancelled it when they told us that-they were gonna do a draw to see who were gonna win the Ultimate Editions. Please Sony, tell me that you are still making those editions-i didn’t deposit $45 dollars for nothing you know. Thanks for readin this. Best Wishes,
supersaiyan500

I got my ultimate edition when Best Buy opened and its amazing. First of all the Ultimate Edition is easily the best collector’s edition of any in the video game industry (maybe Uncharted 2 could have competed if they actually released it :P), but GOW is unmatched even when it comes to packaging.

The game is simply breathtaking, games like this are the reason I play videogames and the reason I am fanatically devoted to Sony and the Playstation brand, you continually outdo yourselves in every way and justify my devotion.

Great Job! Now back to GOW3!

All I can say is WOW!!!! This is like the best game ever. I picked mine up at the Gamestop Midnight launch last night and haven’t put down the controller once, well, maybe except for taking the occasional release and refuel break. The new GOW3 PS3 commercial nails it totally (Great Commercial Sony…LMFAO). You will ignore everything (that means your soon to be leaving you girlfriend) once you start playing this Epic game. The best purchase I have made so far this year. I am humbled by the god who is Santa Monica! All hail Santa Monica Studios…you have truly outdone yourself this time! We are not ready!

2 and half hours into the game and all i can say is…..FUC*IN SIIICK!!!!!!

BUT…and don’t hate me for saying this, but I believe the graphics are not as good as Uncharted 2 as some says. don’t get me wronge, the game still looks gorgeous, but grahpicically, Uncharted 2 has the upper edge.

Will the Ultimate Edition be on sale again? Best Buy botched my pre-order. Still disputing with them but I rather just purchase it and cut them off.

I picked it up at midnight (Ultimate Edition and Collectors Guide) and there was a good crowd, on my way home I passed another Gamestop and there were about 100 people in line, this sucker’s gonna make a killing, literally lol!!! I’m taking a break from the CHAOS after playing this masterpiece for a few hours, I needed to catch my breathe and let it all in lol!!! WOW JUST FREAKING WOW, the game is incredible, the graphics OMG!!! I mean the first 15 minutes, FREAKING A lol, and the controls, it’s just soooo smooth, I was spamming the new grapple move that brings you towards whatever you grab with the blades, it’s my new favorite move, I was bouncing all over the place lol, the game FREAKING ROCKS!!! 8)

+ Airwalkinman17 on March 16th, 2010 at 11:34 am said:

Thank you SO MUCH!!!
I’ve never seen graphics as good as this. My mind has been BLOWN!!!
I am loving every minute of it so far. The bar has officially been raised. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to play an action game as beautiful and as great as this.
I’m just at a loss for words….
Anyway thank you Sony and thank you Santa Monica studios!

@ EXTREME_rkmn (Post 25) – I’m having the same issues!

I have GoW III Ultimate Edition and it takes forever to open chests with R1 and the Icarus wings just close whenever they want.

It seems as though the game has a hard time recognizing a button is being held down.

Is anyone else having this issue or just me and EXTREME_rkmn (Post 25)?

Thanks!

I turned off my system when I wrote my post. After being away for a while I wanted to get back into the game and now… I’m happy to say I’m not experiencing any issues.

So if you have the same problem as me and EXTREME_rkmn (Post 25) – just try restarting (mine was off for over 30 mins).

I am trying to download God of War:Unearthing the Legend and get the message “This PS3 cannot be activated. This content cannot be used. 1 PS3 systems are already activated for your account. To activate this system, you must deactivate another PS3 system. Well the code is brand new and this is the only ps3 I have tried downloading it too so what gives? The skin downloaded fine.

Pardon my lack of enthusiasm.

6 RPGs outsold God of War on the PS2. Why isn’t Sony supporting RPG fans? 3+ years to get Final Fantasy… no Kingdom Hearts… pathetic. You’d think RPGs would be a priority for Sony, but once again Sony ignores their PSX and PS2 RPG fanbase.

I think I’m having a problem with this game, and I’m not sure who to talk to about this.
[POSSIBLE SPOILER]

I’ve entered Hades, and at the part where you burn the vines off the big door w/the bow, but I can’t seem to figure out what to do afterward.
I’ve burnt the vines, then some “fighting music” starts, but nothing happens. I can’t jump off the platform anymore, can’t open the giant door I just unsealed, and no enemies pop up.

So I’m pretty much at a stalemate right now, with no where to go, no other paths to walk, and no other save. Which means I might have to start over again (which isn’t THAT bad, since the opening is incredibly epic, I’d just rather avoid it if possible).

Any solutions?

&& @94

Sony has tons of RPG’s coming out & already out, on PSP.
Also, look to Level 5 for future PS3 jRPGs. Since they apparently have something, other than White Knight Chronicles 2, in the works for PS3.

Not to mention 3D Dot Heroes comes out sometime soon, and Final Fantasy XIV is around the corner, with possible Versus XIII announcements at E3. Just be patient, they’re starting to show their A-Game again.

You have to give them credit tho, Sony pretty much has AAA titles in almost every Genre now. Only thing missing is more AAA jRPG/RPGs and an AAA Simulation Racer (GT5 ;] ).
Not just FPS’s or Casual games.
