Spartan Army! Prepare to embark on a journey of lost worlds and discover the origins of Kratos as Ready At Dawn in conjunction with our Santa Monica Studio are thrilled to announce that the eagerly anticipated PSP experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta will hit store shelves on Tuesday, November 2nd, just in time for the holidays!

After walking away from E3 with 10 “Best of ..” awards, and the incredible first gameplay look of King Midas at the recent “The World That is God of War” discussion panel at Comic-Con, we felt that it was only proper that we offer a pre-order package that is fitting to the gods.

Starting today, pre-order God of War: Ghost of Sparta at any of our participating retailers and receive the ultimate DLC pack at launch.

The God of War: Ghost of Sparta pre-order package includes ALL of the following:

  • Ghost of Sparta Original Soundtrack – Be part of the legacy, and relive the emotional soundscape of defiance and rage through the original soundtrack.
  • PSP Theme – Are you the ultimate God of War fan? Prove it with the God of War: Ghost of Sparta theme.
  • PS3 Dynamic Theme – Fully animated in constant motion, personalize your PS3 system with the official God of War Dynamic Theme.
  • PlayStation Network Avatar – Be one of the few to own the exclusive Kratos Avatar only available through this pre-order.
  • Legionnaire Skin – Discover the origins of the Spartan warrior as you experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta as Legionnaire Kratos.
  • EXCLUSIVE Game Directors Documentary – A full length featured video roundtable with all of the past and present Game Directors for the God of War franchise in front of a live studio audience, including: David Jaffe, Cory Barlog, Stig Asmussen, Ru Weerasuiya and Dana Jan.

Sounds like a lot? Here’s a cheat sheet for the entire DLC pre-order pack.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta details

Update: For those that have the PSP Go, have no fear! The same pre-order bundle will be offered to those who purchase the digital download version of God of War: Ghost of Sparta through the PlayStation Store from November 2, 2010 to November 9, 2010.

Additionally, fans can pre-order the ultimate PSP bundle in the form of the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack beginning today as well. It will be available at all participating retailers for $199.99 MSRP.

Contents include:

  • Black and Red Two-Toned PSP-3000
  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta UMD Game– After God of War concludes, Ghost of Sparta begins with the story of Kratos’ ascension to power as the God of War.

iCyCo, LBP2 is Nov. 16th man. But this is shaping up to be a Awesome November for Playstation fans!

+ Coldforge on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:07 am said:

So if you have a PSPGo, or are planning to buy it through the PSN store, there’s no way to get the pre-order bonuses? That doesn’t seem like a very good plan.

Why are GT5, LBP2 and GOW all on November 2?
I’ll just get GT5 and LBP2 first. :)

Awesome, I only need the game but the additional content sounds great.

BTW: Kick [DELETED] is the worse movie of the year along with “the losers” and “Jonah Hex”

Is that the same dynamic theme from 7-11 promo with Kratos’ eyes or a new one? I like this trend of dynamic themes+PSN avatars as part of pre-order incentives.

Still pushing the knife deeper into the PSPgo and those who dared to get one.

Way to go.

If you won’t support it yourselves, then take it off the market. Don’t be like Apple.

Will I be able to get the avatar and such today if I go pre-order right now from Best Buy or will it all not be available until the game officially releases?

I really want the avatar under my account NOW! :)

What about PSP Go owners? Same as GT PSP?

    + Ken Chan on August 2nd, 2010 at 9:46 am said:

    You’re exactly right. Similar to Gran Turismo PSP, for users with the PSP Go, simply purchase GOW Ghost of Sparta through the PSN Store during the first week of launch, and you’ll be rewarded with the same exclusive pre-order bundle


17

+ RandySore on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:15 am said:

Now this is a better bundle. However, I just wonder why no bundles for the PSP Go. I believe, that’s Sony saying the PSP Go should have been the launch model instead of the PSP-1000 series? Come on Sony show some more love to the Go people.

November is a Rocking month GT5 & God Of War Ghost of Sparta the 2nd. and 14 days later LBP2. No mentioning the multi-platform.

+ leoramen on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:16 am said:

hey, what about the one’s who have a PSP Go, it is not fair, all the special edition are released on UMD, why can’t you sell something like the Patapon 2, a case with the voucher and the rest of the goodies? and when the heck is Crysis Core goin to be available on the PSN? good support for us with a Go… Thanks Sony.


20

+ APVangeliLHS on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:18 am said:

Hmmm.

They should make a version that comes with a Download Voucher of the game instead, so the people who like digital, or have a PSPgo (like me) can also get in on these pre-order bonuses… :'(

I give you lots of money and don’t get much support…

Also, my PSP-3000 GoW:GoS Special Edition is A LOT cooler: http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/12/3/1623319//godofwarghostofspartapsp3000.png

Just sayin…

ok wheres the PSP GO promotion ? hey its a first party title sony , you better give us a PSN promotion ASAP , why cant we ( psp GO owners) pre order the game on PSN in order to get all the DLC ?


22

+ ProjectInfiniti on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:19 am said:

I have a Go, but I just want the DLC stuff and therefore I would like to throw $5-$10 to have this stuff now?

Info about us Go owners would be appreciated!

Love this deal!

I hate Virtual preorder bonuses, I know is easier for developers but sucks for collectors :(

+ bnogradi28 on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:22 am said:

I sure the PSP Go owners like me will get the package when the game is purchased on the PlayStation Store, that’s what happened for the pre-order bonuses for LBP PSP + I got all of the pre-order bonuses for the digital version!


26

+ slammajamma28 on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:25 am said:

If we pre-order the bundle, will we still get the stand-alone game’s listed pre-order bonuses?


27

+ Kitai on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:28 am said:

I laugh at the thought of people who own a PSP GO. You should’ve realized that PSP GO = no more UMD. A lot of great games are not available as downloads and your PSP GO, like every computer, has a hard disk limit. UMDs at least allows you to save as much disk space as possible by having the games saved on separate small data disks. PSP GO is such a ripoff. PSP-3000 FTW! Can’t wait to pre-order this at my local GameStop!

+ iCyCo on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:29 am said:

@Mercenary09
Probably mixing it up with some other high profile game then, it’s alot to choose from for that 1 date.

DC Universe Online, that’s what I meant

Love the sound of the director commentary with all 5 of them. Any chance of this being available for those who download their games from the store.


33

+ awsome_robot on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:42 am said:

Who is the marketing startegist genious that chose Nov. 2? Who is willing to pay for 3 to 4 highly anticipated games at the same time? Not to mention that the other games also come as a more expensive collector’s edition. Unless you guys are counting on the others having delays…


34

+ BurntOrange32 on August 2nd, 2010 at 8:50 am said:

Why isn’t anyone answer us PSPgo owners? Are we still going to be able to get this? Is it going to be the sort of thing where if we buy it within the first week we’ll get the content?

I guess I’ll just make the safe assumption that PSPgo owners can still get this deal buy purchasing in the first week.

Hopefully.

Thanks for not mentioning *anything* about the PSPgo, or replying to *any* of the dozens of PSPgo owners.

I am also interested in the pre-order for the PSP Go. Sony – please address this for us early adopters of your product.

There are many things I like about the PSP Go but issues like this make me question my purchase.
