Ken Chan's Avatar + Posted by Ken Chan on Oct 07, 2010 // Product Manager, SCEA

Spartan Army! The wait for God of War: Ghost of Sparta is almost over. We are less than four weeks away from launch, and we truly saved our best for the very last. Check out our latest “Origins” trailer as it will provide a glimpse of Kratos’s endless nightmares that continues to haunt him. Be sure to watch the entire trailer all the way through as there’s a surprise ending message.


(In case you missed the surprise message at the end, read on!)

For a limited time ONLY, all Specially Marked Boxes of God of War: Ghost of Sparta will include an exclusive downloadable voucher for the Deimos Skin for God of War III.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta -- Exclusive pre-order Deimos skin

God of War: Ghost of Sparta -- Exclusive pre-order Deimos skin

Re-live the God of War III experience like never before as you get to play as Kratos’s brother Deimos. With enhanced combat damage and the ability to receive 4x the amount of Health, Magic and God Orbs, you are given the ultimate rage-fueled Spartan.

For those that are planning to get the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack, don’t worry. All the limited two-tone Entertainment Packs will include the downloadable voucher for the Deimos Skin PSPgo owners, similar to the Ultimate Pre-Order bundle, you will be granted with the Deimos Skin during the limited purchase window through the PS Store from November 2nd to November 9th.

So if you haven’t pre-ordered, be sure to do it soon as both the Six-Item Pre-Order Bundle and Deimos Skin are available for only a limited time!

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY!?!?!? Why oh WHY could this game not have been developed for the PS3?!?! It looks possibly better than GoW III but I don’t, nor ever will own a PSP.

SONY!! Come up with some epic emulation for PSP games on the PS3 NOW!!!!! The gods of Olympus DEMAND IT!!!

i used to play the psp god of war chains of olympus with my father at the same year as it release and it blew my mind, i then played the new psp demo and were surprised this look actually better than the first psp one, and looking at the trailer i am happy to see that will get more of a complex story!
i am so gonna get it and buy a ps3 for gow 3! thanks for caring

“Specially marked boxes.”

That sucks. I would order this on Amazon but I’m not sure if I’ll get one of those “specially marked boxes.”

I guess I’ll look for it on ebay.

OMG O_O *DROOLS* Why isn’t this on the freaking PS3?!! I’m still getting it but it would be so much cooler to be on the PS3. Deimos almost rivals Kratos in awesomeness, he is like the Akuma in God of War.

+ solidmike on October 7th, 2010 at 3:36 pm said:

So basically out of the information I’ve gathered, as a consumer in Canada if I pre order the game I’m going to get the Deimos Skin. But just that. Because no where I have seen says they have it, and every retailer I talk to says they don’t know.

Why is it so hard for people to understand!! If you pre-order the game you will get everything the blog has mentioned for the past month! Just pre-order the game, and wait till Nov. 2, and you will have everything you see!! Wow…was that so hard to understand!? It’s not rocket science guys!

@Ken

I really want this bundle and have a doubt! I have a Ps3 slim and a PsP 2k, don’t have a PsP Go and no way of getting this pre-order bundle by buying it in any of the stores, but I’m going to get this on PS Store in the very first day release, I want to know if I buy it through my Ps3 slim to transfer to my PsP 2k will I get the same pre-order offer? Thanks! Take care.

P.S.: FREAKING OUT FOR DEIMOS! REALLY WANT IT! D:

hi, ken

all that is incredibly great but I didn’t understand 100% about the deimos skin, is it to use it just in god of war 3 or just in GoW ghost of sparta, or in both??

I leave in japan but I have US PSN ID. My question is, if i purchase ghost of sparta from here via PS store, will I get the pre-order bonus as well?

+ ZekeXenu on October 7th, 2010 at 7:41 pm said:

Great trailer.

Any word on getting the Epilogue for GOWIII as Sony Santa Monica seemed to allude to back shortly after GOWIII came out?

What about a “Chaos Edition” of GOWIII with more skins, a new game + mode, the Epilogue, extra challenges (battle arena stuff), and developer commentary…? A fan can dream, can’t he?


85

+ BigBangBear on October 7th, 2010 at 7:54 pm said:

Canceled my order earlier this week at amazon.ca since they don’t have the pre-order and it looks like this won’t be coming to Canada unless you are willing to pay an arm and a leg for duty/shipping fees. Guess I will just be holding off until this drops in price (not paying full price unless I am getting the pre-order bonuses) which is really disappointing. Please get amazon.ca or gamestop.ca to get their act together.

Hmm, if you go to Gamestop.ca at http://www.gamestop.ca/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=306551 to preorder the game. There is not mention of any pre-order bonuses. Hopefully, this is not true as I had mine preordered many months ago. Hopefully, Canada isn’t really left out in the cold.

As far as I can tell the 6 item pre-order bundle is still unavailable in Canada. The url you linked to earlier was to the US EBgames website, Ken Chan. And can you confirm that the Deimos Skin is included in all early copies in Canada as well as the US? Thanks.

i am so incredibly excited for this game

and its really cool to see Kratos’ haunting past actually affecting him here, this trailer was eerie and set a mood that is usually found in horror games. i simply cannot wait!

i do have a question for you guys, santa monica, and sony though…
God of War has a pretty tight continuity between all of its games, yet not all are easily accessible by us players. God of War: Betrayal is not only cannon but also appears to be a fairly important plot point between “Ghost of Sparta” and “II”
is it possible that we will ever see a port or remake of it to a sony platform so this chapter can be experienced by all who’ve missed it? A Playstation Mini on the PSP or PSN perhaps?

I hope you can play as Deimos in Ghost of Sparta just like in GOWIII. Also Deimos looks cool even better then Kratos. It might be because I am getting a Leonidas vibe from him.
