God of War III Ultimate Edition

SCEA and Santa Monica Studios are thrilled to announce the first Ultimate Edition for God of War. Earlier this year, we polled a number of fans on what would make an awesome collector’s edition for God of War. Well, we took your advice and created something epic and filled it with premium collectible and exclusive digital content.

God of War III Ultimate Edition

The Ultimate Edition will feature the following:

Exclusive Collectibles
• High-End Sculpted Replica of Pandora’s Box
• Limited-Edition God of War Art Book featuring exclusive art, content and interviews

Exclusive Digital Content (Available via PlayStation Network voucher codes on day of launch)
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges
• Premium Kratos Skin – Dominus
• God of War: Unearthing the Legend Franchise Documentary – a full-length movie documentary depicting the history of the God of War franchise
• God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War, II, and III scores from the game (mp3 digital download).
• God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War (mp3 digital download).

But it keeps getting better for the fans. Those that pre-order God of War III at select retailers will receive a voucher code for first access to download the God of War III E3 2009 Demo starting today, plus you will receive an exclusive downloadable skin from the following retailers: Amazon, GameCrazy and GameStop.

“any chance this game will be rated teen” i laughed when i saw that post. if it was rated teen it wouldn’t be a god of war game. plus 8.3″ wide x 10.5″ long x 5.9″ tall replica of Pandora’s Box just bout the size of our playstation 3 pretty huge -_^

For the people that have posted that they can’t afford the $100.00 right now, if you order through GameStop online you are not charged until the item ships.

I have already pre-ordered the UE and then got one of the emails from Sony saying that I was selected to go ahead and get the demo from being registered on the GOW site. Add me to your friends list on PSN and when I get the demo code from GameStop, I will randomly pick someone to give the code to.

Everyone have a great day!!!!!!

OMFG I Never Thought I’d Buy Special Edtions Of Any Game Till I Seen This I Need That BOX I NEED IT :( Cant Wait I CANT WAIT

What is the box made of? Is it going to be plastic or something else? I can’t find any official word on this.

WOLF873 said:

November 1st, 3:17 pm

Say what would the box be made of? Steel or Plastic?

Taomuffin said:

November 1st, 9:13 pm

I am terribly tempted, I have to admit. And I haven’t ever bought a special edition of any game.

In GOW II, the different unlockable skins had special attributes that affected damage, health, armor, magic, etc. Any of these pre-order skins have special features to them?

Is this coming to Australia!!??? Because if it is, its a day 1 pre order for me

plzz come to Australia!!

Cuningulus_69 said:

what is the box going to made of? for an extra 50 bucks i hope its not plastic. also which one of those exclusive skins is the Forgotten Warrior?

JVBGFR said:

November 2nd, 9:44 am

This pre-order sounds amazing. Out of curiosity, will there be any PlayStation Home content to come from you guys? Like maybe a costume of Kratos with the Golden Fleece and the blades on his back, and maybe even a game space. Both would be really awesome to have in Home.

How big is the box?

Keyeszx said:

November 2nd, 2:34 pm

I love how everyone is asking how much the deluxe will be. He’s said it like 20 times. I just wanted to know if this is all it’s coming with. $80 would be justifiable for this. But if it comes with more then $100 is worth it. Also I was wondering why do we get an old demo.
We’re going to be shelling out over $100 with tax for an old demo and all this other amazing stuff that is brand new. We need some new stuff. Also why does Kratos attack the magma titan at the end of the demo? I forget the name of the titans.

I’m still waiting on my voucher code from Amazon. Plus they still haven’t sent my code for the samurai pack for Tekken 6. I really wish Amazon would send these things out in a timely manner. If I have to more than a day you can bet I’m going to cancel my order. I am getting so sick and tired of being promised something and then getting screwed over in the end.

Thanks guys for hooking me up with a demo my email. I still went ahead and reserved at all 3 retailers to get the exclusive swag from them. I sure loves me some GoW.

Does anyone know is GOW 3 Ultimate edition will be out in Canada?

Keyeszx said:

November 2nd, 7:32 pm

No idea if it’s coming to Canada but why not just drive down to the closest state and buy it down there and bring it back up.

A replica of Blades of Chaos or Blades of Athena would be awesome. Although I would really want a Golden Fleece if they did anything.

hey ive just talked to some reps and they say that it is indeed a plastic material… Its still a beast though! GOW3 FTW!

woshiyizhishuimu said:

November 3rd, 9:04 pm

i just want to know the material of the Pandora’s Box, thanks!

Maluraq said:

November 4th, 7:56 am

While the extras look pretty cool, and the Pandora’s box is neat, I can’t imagine paying a $30 premium for content that will probably be made available at a later date to everyone else anyway.

I bought my Resistance 2 special edition and got a physical disc of extras with it, a booklet of beautiful artwork and a Chimera action figure and paid only a $10 premium for it.

At least throw in those extras on real pressed discs.

November 4th, 4:38 pm

OMG Ken Chan i love god of war its my favorite game series! The demo is so awesome! but 2 questions 1:why does the titan in the demo try to fight him at the end of it? 2:does the ultimate edition come out next year or this year bonus question:does it come with the game? bonus question 2:ive heard the game comes out in march, april, march, april… which month is it really? if you reply thank you!

Just pre-ordered GOW III Ultimate Edition and GOW Collection from amazon!

super-cheeseman said:

November 4th, 8:00 pm

Does anyone know why that i preordered GOW 3 ultimate edition from Ebgames canada and they charged me 89.99

G-Man139 said:

November 4th, 8:07 pm

My only question is why does most of this exclusive UE content have to be DLC. I mean, i can understand having the combat arenas and skins as DLC but I don’t want to waste tons of HDD space on a Full length movie and two different full soundtracks when they SHOULD be Physically included (especially if pandora’s box is big enough)….. I remember my MGS4 SE came with a full documentary and a soundtrack as well in the form of physical discs, and they came in a package 1/4th the size of the pandora’s box.

RodSt3f_72 said:

sNsKid said:

November 7th, 4:54 pm

I called up 3 different GameStops here in Canada today. All 3 of them said they were taking pre-orders for the God of War 3: UE and that it was $89.99. None of the stores however had heard anything about an E3 Demo code when you pre-order. There is also nothing on about the E3 Demo. Anyone have any details regarding this?

super-cheeseman said:

November 7th, 11:02 pm

Gamestop said that the Demo won’t be in store for people in canada yet. They also said it would eventually get here. Does anyone know why the price of ultimate edition is 89.99

arcticozzy said:

November 8th, 5:06 am

Can somone send me a link to pre order the ultimate edition for the EU its only on the american amazon Or does it not really matter where i pre order it lol IM SO WORRIED IF I DONT GET IT :(

NightHawk_12 said:

November 8th, 7:22 am

I don’t know the reasoning behind the lower price but it has been happening to a couple games in Canada lately. I picked up Batman: Arkham Asylum on release day from Gamestop for $39.99. The US Gamestop web site has it listed for $59.99. Friend of mine also picked up Boarderlands on release day for $39.99 and it’s listed on the US site for $49.99. I’m not sure why these games have been cheaper but the Gamestop here assured me that the GoW: UE was the exact same product as the one shipping in US. Nothing missing. So it’s just $10 cheaper. I’m not complaining :)

super-cheeseman said:

November 8th, 3:34 pm

Well the demo is missing. I don’t mind if they don’t have the demo but i want to make sure canada ebgames have the ultimate edition

super-cheeseman said:

November 9th, 4:44 pm

Does anyone know if this game will run in 1080p @60fps?

zuneguy said:

November 10th, 3:47 pm

is this going to be available in canada? because it would be a big dissapointment to miss out on a cool set like this. i can only hope that you guys at sony will be nice to us canadians and let us get this cool collectors item. (PLEASE!!!)

Mr Chan does the pandora box open up like a real box, just wondering.

Luxmortem said:

November 19th, 4:28 am

Seems pretty cool, even if I’m a bit disapointed by the lack of physical goodies (for instance why having the soundtrack in lousy mp3 quality, when you could have put it on a CD with the corresponding quality). When you pay 100$ for an edition like this, even if the container is awesome it’s a bit greedy to put so few in. Mainly with an environnement as rich as the one of GOW…
I hope the content updates will more “substantial” and less dowloadable.

Luxmortem said:

November 19th, 4:35 am

And another thing, I quite curious to listen what kind of “Heavy Metal” will be inspired by a game of this brutality. I hope we’ll be far from Doro…

Wow this is freaking awsome. I played the E3 demo and it is amazingly beautiful. I have a question though, I pre ordered God of War 3 so does that mean I won’t get the Ultimate Collection? Do I go to the store where I pre ordered the game and say that I want to pre order the Ultimate Collection instead?
