God of War: Ghost of Sparta Picks Up 9 Awards, 4 Nominations at E3

Eric Levine's Avatar Posted by SCEA PR Manager

Fellow Spartans –

With E3 behind us, I’d like to take a minute to recap the great feedback we’ve received about Kratos’ newest adventure on PSP and PSPgo. I’m thrilled to report that God of War: Ghost of Sparta has received nine “Best of E3…” awards, along with 3 nominations. Thanks again to our friends in the media for all of your support. We’re extremely appreciative and are looking forward to showing you more of this epic journey as we move closer to our release.

Here’s a quick list of our E3 accolades…



For those who haven’t seen our E3 teaser trailer yet, give it watch. And for those who have, here’s a clip of gameplay footage we showed at E3 to give you a taste of the action.

How many PSP Games were even shown at E3? It’s not like it had much competetion :p

Seriously though I loved the first game and can’t wait for this one.

Ready at Dawn sure do get a lot out of that machine. This looks like as big an improvement over COO as GoW1 over GoW2.

Congratulations!! You guys should put a sale of GoW CoO on PSN to promote the release of this game!

looks like its coming along… In game music not finalized? Noticed the trailer is pretty devoid of music after the initial start.

Can’t wait to get a hold of this game.

i was hoping PSP2 to be unveiled at E3 with GOW:Ghost of Sparta as one of the launch games :D

Ghost of Sparta looks awesome! Congrats!

I dont expect anything less from a God of War title , all of them have won awards in almost any show they have appeared , God of War = EPICNESS , btw i have played Ghost of Sparta at E3 , i have no doubt in my mind that it will best what i consider to this day the best PSP game to date ( God of War Chains of Olympus ) even though Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is Epic as well , Congratulations and thank you for bringing more EPICNESS to the PSP

Destiny89 said:

I really wish if you guys brought another GoW for PS3 instead of psp as i truly loved GoW3 and the GoW collection. will keep an eye tho on the psp version

    Did you play Chains of Olympus? It is a full-blooded God of War game in every way. Well worth playing!

That’s a lot of awards for what amounts to a game built out of fanboyish Greek mythology fanfic. Congratulations, the plebes have been placated.

sweet, videos work on the PS3 browser again. Also this game looks sick, about time we had some Atlantis mythology in god of war

Seriously why not widen your audience bring this and COO playable to the PS3 with syncing game saves for owners of both systems. I’m sure opening the PSP games to PS3 owners would help expose the capabilities of the PSP and make us more likely to purchase one since the games would be cross compatible just like the PSP minis and PS1 Classic games.

monterja said:

thanks for fixing the videos. i just hope that all of them will use the same format

Those graphics look much better than Chains of Olympus and maybe even better than God of War 2.

DiscoJer said:

Well, this is not surprising, considering that almost no PSP games were shown at E3. What would beat it, exactly? Ys 7 perhaps.

Indeed, looking at the PSP’s release schedule, it’s not getting thing for 5 weeks – August 6th, when Madden comes out. Then it picks up, but it’s mostly JRPGs (which I like, thankfully, but if you don’t, you’re out of luck)

How can people “Step Your Game UP” to the PSP when no new games are coming to it? One high profile game a year isn’t enough…

Best PSP Game? Those awards shouldn’t even count, it’s not like the PSP was flooded with support during E3. Sony almost didn’t even mention it.

adolson said:

I will be buying this for PSP, just like I bought and loved CoO.

BUT… I would buy both of them a second time if you released them on the PSN as PS3 ports. They don’t need to be up-res’d or anything (just scale it using the PS3’s nice scaler), just straight ports, that’d be sweet. Peace Walker would be nice on the big screen, too. My TV is too far away to use the TV out, and the black box border is annoying. Plus, DualShock 3 would be nicer than holding a wired PSP (I don’t have a Go).

Peace Walker must not have been in the running.

angelspawn77 said:

July 8th, 5:58 pm

cant wait for this game, I think it would be really cool if you guys have a SE version of it for 50$ like they did with MGS PW, I bought it in a heart beat and I loved the box and the art book. I think something similar for GOW GoS(at the same price preferably) would be great and id definitely buy it :)

J70mega777 said:

GO GOW i just got the ps3 remakes and my go is starving for some kratos on it

jeepdeep said:

July 8th, 7:09 pm

Any word on a release date? A date? A week? A month? A period of months? You have to give me something man!

Berae said:

July 8th, 7:28 pm

Nice congrats!

On another note,
I’m surprised we have not heard much about Little big planet 2 this year. Anything’s coming?

srewbacca said:

July 8th, 10:10 pm

Congrats! This is definitely one of my most anticipated PSP games this year! I can’t wait to play as Kratos again!

eddieMX07 said:

Helpfully this game will be longer than Chains of Olympus.

I wounder the creature at 1:00 is carrying in its back

Solid-Snake-Eyes said:

July 8th, 10:22 pm

@31 yeah if this is as short as Chains I’ll wait for it to hit $20.

TheGuardianFID said:

July 8th, 11:13 pm

CoO was awesome and this one will be no different, SOLD!!! 8)

poweredbyzen said:

QuietstormRB said:

Looking forward to GoS. CoO was fantastic. Will there be some kind of interconnectivity between GoS and GoW3? It would be great if that were to happen.

Very good job. I just bought CoO right after I finished God of War 3, since I wanted to experience the rest of the God of War trilogy, or at least what’s available on Video Game Consoles/Handheld.

I played the PS2 Versions of God of War 1 & 2 back to back, then bought GoW Collection for PS3 and played that (oh so superior) version through and through until I platinumed both of those games. THEN I just sat in anticipation of God of War 3. Low and behold, I platinumed that, too. :)

So I moved on to finishing CoO and am now awaiting Ghost of Sparta. Absolutely love the fact that you get the classic Spartan weapons in this one. I don’t know why they weren’t included from the beginning! (Although I LOVED the ‘Phalanx and Arrow’ Magic in GoW3, absolutely beautiful)

Kudos!!!GoW sequels and the whole collection it is the best collection a sony fan could ever had!!! Congrats and keep up the great work!!And yes, I do agree we need a new addition to GoWIII.

jdktrcr said:

July 12th, 12:17 am

mnm124 said:

July 30th, 1:23 pm

Ready at Dawn have brought the PSP to a whole new level!!!
