For those that are either thinking of or have already pre-ordered the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack for PSP, check out our latest trailer above that shows off the limited edition Two-Toned PSP. The Entertainment Pack includes the content below:

If that wasn’t enough, for those that pre-order through any of our participating retailers, you will also receive a PlayStation Store downloadable voucher to redeem the following content:

If you do the math, you will essentially get all 12 great items listed above for only $199. Be sure to visit www.godofwar.com for more info.

Can someone get Kaz to phone those slackers at SCEE and find where our pre-order bonuses are? Seriously, the game’s out on Friday & still no anouncement on the EU blog.

I have no interest in GoW but I just had to say, that is probably one of the better bundles I’ve ever seen. Wish I was a fan cause I’d be all over that. dang! More games should come with avatars & themes. Good idea!

I thought I read if you could still gain the pre-order bonuses even if you buy from the Playstation store. I believe I read you’d have to buy it during the first week of release. Is this true? The headline of this post is leading me to believe I read something false. Thanks.

Totally cool! Still waiting and counting the days/hrs.

Quick question / idea — will there ever be special bundles for the PSPGo? Its great the PSP3K is still going strong but why no push for the PSPGo? I know the prices have just been lowered yet I don’t see why marketing is not doing bundles for the newer system only the PSP3K.

Anyway, thanks for the GoW news!

I’ll be missing out on all the preorder stuff because I refuse to pay $40 for a downloadable portable game. Sony, your portable games will continue to sell like crap till you change your pricing stratagy.

What a load of garbage!
$40 for a high quality is not a rip off, if you dont like the price, quess what this is a free market, dont buy it or buy it when the price comes down. Too much whining on the gaming web sites, when there are way more reasons to be enjoying all this gaming goodies

This 5pm PST update practice is KILLING ME! I’m refraining from writing expletives. Do you guys have consideration for EST PSN users? When are you going to implement rolling updated.

I’m not always waiting to download, buy the weeks that I do, I would like to have the option to have access to it earlier.

The 5PM PDT is bad, that’s 8PM EDT. All preorder DLC should be added to your systems the week prior so they are working the day we get vouchers. Nothing sucks more than waiting all day to access DLC or Collector’s Edition DLC.

@14 krae_man
Ummmm You do realize how expensive it was for sony to make this game? Long time God of War composers had to be creative in the implementation of the soundtrack for starters because they didn’t have access to the same assets as god of war 1-3. JUST so they could deliver us some new music.

What’s worse is that Piracy is rampant on PSP, just look up the comments made recently but Ready At Dawn which questioned the wisdom of developing PSP games as studios see little in the way of returns.

Then there is the fact that PSP sales are down and only 11 million software titles were sold.

If you ask me with those kinds of returns we’re lucky they aren’t asking us 50 dollars for the game.

As other Canadians have said; Gamestop.ca nor the physical stores have no information regarding any of the pre-order bonus material. The only answer I can get from them is “you will have to wait and see as we dont know” from the clerks. That’s even from this morning.

And I am with #16 – how many more blogs are going to be posted about the exact same thing. I mean, the only thing that hasnt been blogged is the fact that Ghost of Sparts features “pressing buttons” or is going to be shipped in “colour”. :)

Talk about milking a franchise.

It would be nice if some of the other games coming out for the PSP received a little love on the blog site.

Another Question: I haven’t preordered anything yet in my whole life so i don’t really know how this pre-ordering works but for example: if i just click the pre-order button in Gamestop, but don’t continue to checkout UNTIL after Nov 2. Will it still count as a pre-order?(since i won’t be receiving money until the 5th but i really want this pre-order bonuses so..yeah)

Yeah, i know i sound noob. But please bare with me. haha

@kowan

You can pre-order at the store, and put down 5$ and pick it up later. Although you should let the people know that you want a pre-order bundle. Call them on launch day. I think they have a policy to keep it for 48 hours after launch, so I’m sure they’re willing to give you another 24 hours if you ask for it.
