God of War III Launch Special Tonight on SPIKE TV + Midnight Launch Events!

Eric Levine's Avatar Posted by SCEA PR Manager

God of War fans –

The day you’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. At 12:00 a.m. tonight, Kratos will be invading a retailer near you as the widely anticipated God of War III will be hitting store shelves! For those looking to channel your inner Spartan warrior, check out GTTV Presents God of War III: Last Titan Standing on SPIKE TV at 11:38 p.m. In this 30 minute special, action adventure comes to life as 10 of the biggest God of War fans in America get pushed to the limits, both mentally and physically.

These die-hard disciples of Kratos must shave their heads on the spot to show their allegiance, climb out of the underworld, and know their God of War trivia, as asked by game director Stig Asmussen. And, above all else, prove their physical strength across epic challenges and gameplay ability in a battle against Hades from God of War III. In the end, only one titan will be left standing – the one who best embodies the characteristics of Kratos, the God of War.

Here’s a look at the promo…

Here’s a look at the custom Kratos PS3 that the winner will be receiving…not bad!

Tonight, more than 3,500 stores nationwide will be welcoming Kratos faithful with various contests, challenges, and giveaways.

I WANT TO BUY THAT. WHY?

No stores around me doing midnight releases either. :(

@(umforgotyournamealready)
Square did limited edition bundles for FFXIII, just wasn’t for PS3. Walk into Best Buy and you can’t miss them since no one is buying them on that system. FFXIII was the first multi platform game where it was more of a benefit to get it on PS3 (IMO)

You apparently didn’t contact your retail partners in Canada, like EB Games, because none of them here are midnight launching…which is total BS considering this is the biggest game the Ps3 has EVER seen.

Try harder, Canada hates you.

Why do you guys like the LOOK AT MY KRATOS FACE!!! art so much?

Its so bad looking, yet you guys put it everywhere, even on the ps3 itself..

Its like you guys DONT realize that theres much better art from GoW out there…Its so frustrating to see, and mind numbing.

Thrasher20 said:

March 15th, 6:23 pm

March 15th, 7:05 pm

Hey, Sony, have you seen the comments? This needs to be a bundle pack!!!!! I would sell my pet pegasus to have that!!! Please, for the fans!! I would be willing to be bound with the blades of chaos to obtain this pandora’s box of a gaming system!!!

Laser etched kratos puts my “Ken” SFIV vinyl to shame.

Eric… you need to fire someone… this PS3 alone would have moved playstation units. That thing is beautiful….the best I’ve seen.

nooooo not fair we don’t get a chance to win that God of war 3 PS3 in London. (well for now atleast anyway) Cant watch the Adert launch video or any other videos on the US and EU blogs.There all still unsupport by the PS3 internet browser

KILLZONE79 said:

March 15th, 8:02 pm

i dont want to bash anything here but, IMO the custom designs dont fit on the PS3 slim well, now that kratos would look great on the original PS3 but you guys at sony stopped production on those other units and only keep producing slim

but i understand because of production cost.

Am I the only one getting that preorder page when linked to the gamestop list? I can’t tell if my store will be open.

jipmg said:

March 15th, 8:28 pm

You guys definately should have made it a bundle, for $399..

oh well, I mean how many units did the MGS4 ps3 push?

filthyvillain said:

March 15th, 8:29 pm

Leaving to go get my copy at the midnight launch right now!!!!!

super-cheeseman said:

Bethanator5000 said:

March 15th, 9:02 pm

I’m not able to go to the midnight release cos my husband MESSED UP OUR CAR D: So depressing.

Getting that sweet PS3 would cheer me up though!

Ramses_13 said:

March 15th, 9:15 pm

The game is by far better then I expected…Been playing for good amount of hours now..
Killing the Gods in GOW3 feels amazing the way its set up, Epic, the visuals are stunning too! Up there with Uncharted 2, maybe even better!…

Thrill_Kill said:

March 15th, 11:46 pm

Meh… Well at least you got some Best Buys to do the midnight launch. Sadly, I live in Palmdale, and the closest Best Buy doing the midnight launch is in Victorville! And Victorville is not even as heavily populated as the Antelope Valley that I live in! :(

*sigh* oh well, I guess I get my Collectors Edition in the morning when Best Buy opens at 10AM. :P Thanks for trying though… At least your giving Best Buy the opportunity instead of forcing GameStop on us. Thanks anyways guys. :) You’re getting better at least. Perhaps next big game huh?

Dear sony and santa monica i just recently played GOW3 and there’s 3 trophies that i am not unlocking and i want to know why the hell its not unlocking, im playing on titan mode (first playthrough) and i have the 120gb slim model. so can i know why my 3 trophies are not unlocked and i dont want to say which ones arent being unlocked but it’s in the very beginning of the game 3 specific ones. so please make a patch that makes this glitch go away i achieve other trophies but their not story related so fix this glitch cause i’m a huge fan of the god of war series thank you dont make me regret buying a ps3 from all these f’d up glitches that have been happening with the playstation 3

Sony should be bundling the PS3 with the game, i am sure it will sell like hotcakes.. I wonder why, they dont do it in the states… Japan and Asia got our Final Fantasy Lighting Special bundle (proud owner). :P… i would be tempted to get a 3rd ps3 if it had kratos face on it :P

LN_MEXWARRIOR said:

March 16th, 5:59 am

YOU GUYS SHOULD MAKE A CUSTOM MADE SYSTEM TO SELL BUNDLED WITH THE GAME!

I would upgrade my Phat PS3 to that!

WarGod_83 said:

March 16th, 6:05 am

Sony should sell Kratos branded PS3. It will go like hot cakes. lol sony always does that for some reason. they never do the most desirable. btw first time commenting here :), picking up my copy of GOD OF WAR III today, cant wait to go home and bring my revenge. i m going to take down one God at a time.

psn network is down again is there anything that can be done to keep this from happening over and over again? you pay $60+ for these games then you cant even play them online

joedaboneleone said:

March 16th, 6:42 am

actually it is Cod MW2 that is down sorry for that but like i said you pay all that money for an online game and have more problems with it than you can play it. PLEASE PSN fix this problem

Nintendo451 said:

March 16th, 10:00 am

How many of these PS3’s have been made? At least one or two for the Last Titan Standing, at least one for Gamestop…how many total?

Phat80117 said:

March 17th, 8:18 am

Phat80117 said:

March 17th, 8:23 am
