Reason #4 to Pre-Order God of War: Ghost of Sparta – Legionnaire Kratos

Ken Chan's Avatar + Posted by Ken Chan on Oct 08, 2010 // Product Manager, SCEA

Spartan Army! For those that may have missed yesterday’s post, the announcement and release of the Origins trailer with Deimos Skin has been overwhelming, and we can’t wait for our Spartan Army members to relive the God of War III experience with the exclusive voucher pack-in of God of War: Ghost of Sparta.

If the Deimos Skin announcement wasn’t exciting enough for you, here’s reason #4 to Pre-Order God of War: Ghost of Sparta – Legionnaire Kratos. Here’s a little sneak peek at the Legionnaire Skin in action!

God of War: Ghost of Sparta for PSP -- Legionnaire Kratos

After all, if Kratos will reveal the origins of lost worlds and discover his dark past within Ghost of Sparta, what better way to complete the God of War experience than with the exclusive Legionnaire Skin included in the pre-order bundle?

I don’t need any reason to pre-order this (I already have in full), this game is going to be the best, with or without these incentives.

Can we please get confirmation on which Canadian retailers will carry the preorder pack? Gamestop.ca (not .com) doesn’t even have an image for the game, amazon.ca (not .com) only has the default press release info, bestbuy.ca (not .com) also barely has any info.

I’ve been denied quite a few preorder bonuses from many Canadian retailers/websites these days. When questioned, they didn’t even know there was preorder content.

Will these pre-order skins or the Game Directors Documentary be available on PSN for those who currently own God of War III? I currently own the Ultimate Edition and have no current plans on owning a PSP. These additions would be nice additions to us PS3 owners

Alright, I got it. You have my money the day the Digital Copy drops so I can just have all the DLC download at once. Do you want anything more from me? My first born maybe? My family? Name it.

I’m not going to pre-order the game just for skins. I will eventually of course get the game, but these “exclusive” things are timed.

It gets released to the public later on for a small price.

Are all these skins new additions to the preorder GoW:GoS? Deimos skin was the only thing I didn’t see as part of the “6 reasons” awhile back. Not that I don’t mind, but if you guys keep on making it more enticing, I might have to preorder a 2nd copy?!

    + Ken Chan on October 8th, 2010 at 10:25 pm said:

    hahahaha… let’s spend a sec to clarify. There’s a total of 6 items for the pre-order, including the Original Soundtrack, PSN avatar, PSP Theme, PS3 Dynamic Theme, God of War Live Video, and the Legionnaire Skin (for Ghost of Sparta). The Deimos skin is outside of the pre-order and packed-in with Specially Marked Boxes of Ghost of Sparta and the Limited Edition Entertainment Pack. Feel free to pre-order the 2nd copy!

+ DEATH_KROW on October 9th, 2010 at 8:35 am said:

As it was said before, “Every end must first Begin”. But I wonder, will Krato’s little brother be in this game? I know it sounds like a spoiler but in GoW III towards the ending of the game after Gaia comes back, Zues mentions that her pawn has failed and she should have chosen the other one. I was curious to know what it was so I watched some videos from GoW and there was a video that showed that krato’s ltttle brother was killed and he became like a demon of some sort and swore revenge on Kratos. Was it him? Or was it someone else that was never mentioned in the game?

Its amazing that the pre-order bonuses for a PSP game, are somehow better and more fulfilling than anything Playstation Plus has offered yet to date. Amazing and sad.

But why are these PSP games not being remastered as PSN releases? Both PSP games are awesome in their own right, but a PSN release would ensure people who played GoW3 will set this in their sights. The PSP just doesn’t cast the same net the Ps3 does.

Aside from these pre-order/early buyers DLC will we be seeing more dlc in the future? i mean those two skins we get for this new GoW game seems cool, but will there be more?

Hi Ken, thanks for the reply! I was hoping to just get a regular blog comment reply, but to have an entire blog post to clear up the Canadian content far exceeds my expectations.

Thanks for putting in the time, since I’m definitely pre-ordering this the instant I know where to get the pack!

@hepcatmatty: One would think that Hercules being in the franchise instead of Heracles would be a hint that GoW isn’t 100% based in Greek mythology.

I understand that PSPgo owners will get the pre-order exclusives if they purchase between 11/2 and 11/9 on PSN, but what about regular PSP owners who don’t want the game on UMD but wish to purchase on PSN between 11/2 and 11/9… will we get the pre-order exclusives as well? I really don’t want the game on UMD, but really want the pre-order exclusives.

Anyone know for sure on this?
