God of War: Chains of Olympus – Special Edition Demo Disc

Cory Barlog's Avatar Posted by Sony Santa Monica Studios

What is up God of War fans? Sorry for the long hiatus but things have been crazy here at Casa De Kratos…much to do. I thought I would come out of my somewhat self imposed media coma to let everyone know that the PSP demo discs are freaking done baby!!! As I type these words, legions of carrier Harpies are being dispatched to deliver the sweet UMD goodness that is God of War: Chains of Olympus – Special edition: Battle of Attica Demo Disc…otherwise know as GOW: COO –SE:BoADD. Good god…that is a freaking mouthful, even typing this abbreviated version makes me tired.

That’s it for now, keeping this one quick. The game is looking absolutely amazing, btw, so I hope everyone enjoys this little taste of portable God of War goodness. As a matter of fact, I think it even got an award for the Best PSP Game, or something like that, at the Leipzig conference.

Alright, back to my work induced hibernation…

NG2 doesnt compete with god of war. Reviews say it all. I got mad that people thought Heavenly sword was a god of war rip off, that probably dropped the score. God of war 3 is coming, sony isnt going to give up their biggest franchise so easily.

I’m glad to see the Psp getting titles developed exclusively for its capabilities. Multiplatform releases that send out a token effort on the psp always come out short compared to the others. It’s quality games like this that are going to sell it more than anything else.

Sony, drown “Ready at Dawn” in cash and keep them making psp titles for as long as you possibly can. Between Daxter and God of War, Ready at Dawn is going to develope a devoted group of fans. Now if they could only come up with a survival-horror title i’m be in heaven…

Nice work Cory… this looks like an unquestionable best seller.

Not sure if David Jaffe officially has anything to do with direction on the GOW series at all anymore. I think he is “helping” flesh out the story though and will probably hand it over to Cory if he hasn’t done so already. Either way…we all know they’re working on it. If they would just get it out there in time for winter 08 they would sell a lot of PS3’s!

Yeah I hope we see a downloadable version. I signed up, but it just seemed so simple, Im not sure it went through. It didnt ask me any questions at all. I just typed in my email address, and it said you will recieve your demo shortly. Plus I live in Canada, and Im not sure if you ship here.

The GODS are dead because Kratos killed em all.

joel said:

Kratos hasnt killed any yet only the god of war. Zeus survived.

I’m just sayin’.

There won’t be any gods left after GoW III.

Along with the projects from Team Ico, Naughty Dog and Incognito, GoW falls into the “why I’m proud of my PS exclusives” category.

This is great, guys. But um, not to be rude, but if you mailed it by FedEx I could’ve had it today. That’s all I’m saying. Just kidding–I can’t wait to play this demo. I wonder if Sony would consider a God Of War themed PSP. It would sell just like the Crisis Core PSP. At least in the US.

Lets get God of war next year, and cut the price of the PS3 to $399.00
They have two new 360s for the Christmas holidays. The first is a somewhat uninspiring bundle, featuring Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance in a single box With HDMI and 256MB memory card,

Cesar said:

Oh yea God of War, Crisis core Final Fantasy 7 are on my MUST buy list for my psp

harleydon said:

September 30th, 8:32 pm

any one know how i can get my hands on that demo?

lakaihigh said:

September 30th, 8:44 pm

@harleydon – yeah. but you will need to do the following:

1. get a time capsole
2. go back in the past to about 4-5 months ago
3. sign up on the website
4. return to the future and wait by the mailbox

or you could simply see if you can find it on eBay for a reasonable price when we get it, finish playing it, and post it on there.

No Demo yet. Argh! First the back of the GOW 2 manual says coming 2007, then the demo was announceded to be released 9/07, Finally it’s October 2nd almost 2:00 pm eastern and my mailman didn’t bring me my demo. ARGH!!!!!!!!!

recommend while we are waiting for more good stuff from ps…bill moyers journal….his essay;FOR THE FALLEN

benjiedude said:

October 2nd, 1:13 pm

Seriously, why has there been no explanation given for the delay? On the back of the GOW 2 manual it said GOWCO was “COMING 2007”. This has never really been addressed. I don’t believe they meant Demo coming 2007, does anyone else?

Loucifer said:

October 2nd, 1:38 pm


Sony is not in the business to give explanations/apologies or just Information….they’re in the business of smoke screens/lies and secrets…dont bother asking for info or Sony to clarify something…even if they did…the answer is “We have no information on that”…like they’ve been saying about rumble…which obviously is finally happening…has this “OFFICIAL” blog mentioned anything???…NOPE!!…there are NUMEROUS subjects that could have been discussed on this “OFFICIAL” blog thats been covered on ALL the “UNofficial sites”…just to give you an idea what Sony is about…

also not to sound repetitive but when this blog first started a very known person by the name of PATRICK SEYBOLD said and i quote…

“we promise we’ll quickly make this blog a valuable stop in your daily info hunt for PlayStation news” – June 11 PS BLOG

really?…really Patrick???…then why do we still get ignored and why are there only ONE or MAYBE even TWO updates a week with such BS topics that no one really wants to talk about…the topics we REALLY want information about are NEVER…i repeat…NEVER discussed…like firmware updates…developer updates…no instead we get BS!!!!! like R&C went gold…which doesnt even mean sales #’s…get a grip!
