Spartan Army! Prepare to embark on a journey of lost worlds and discover the origins of Kratos as Ready At Dawn in conjunction with our Santa Monica Studio are thrilled to announce that the eagerly anticipated PSP experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta will hit store shelves on Tuesday, November 2nd, just in time for the holidays!

After walking away from E3 with 10 “Best of ..” awards, and the incredible first gameplay look of King Midas at the recent “The World That is God of War” discussion panel at Comic-Con, we felt that it was only proper that we offer a pre-order package that is fitting to the gods.

Starting today, pre-order God of War: Ghost of Sparta at any of our participating retailers and receive the ultimate DLC pack at launch.

The God of War: Ghost of Sparta pre-order package includes ALL of the following:

  • Ghost of Sparta Original Soundtrack – Be part of the legacy, and relive the emotional soundscape of defiance and rage through the original soundtrack.
  • PSP Theme – Are you the ultimate God of War fan? Prove it with the God of War: Ghost of Sparta theme.
  • PS3 Dynamic Theme – Fully animated in constant motion, personalize your PS3 system with the official God of War Dynamic Theme.
  • PlayStation Network Avatar – Be one of the few to own the exclusive Kratos Avatar only available through this pre-order.
  • Legionnaire Skin – Discover the origins of the Spartan warrior as you experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta as Legionnaire Kratos.
  • EXCLUSIVE Game Directors Documentary – A full length featured video roundtable with all of the past and present Game Directors for the God of War franchise in front of a live studio audience, including: David Jaffe, Cory Barlog, Stig Asmussen, Ru Weerasuiya and Dana Jan.

Sounds like a lot? Here’s a cheat sheet for the entire DLC pre-order pack.

  • So GT5, LBP2, GOW all on Nov 2

  • Mercenary09

    WOW! If thats not a good deal for preordering then Idk what is! Is Amazon.com one of the participating retailers?

    • Ken Chan

      You know it! Definitely take advantage of it. And yes, Amazon is one of the participating retailers

  • SirTrigalot

    i just might have to do this, but I would really like to preorder games on PSN

  • What about those of us with a PSP Go?

  • Mercenary09

    iCyCo, LBP2 is Nov. 16th man. But this is shaping up to be a Awesome November for Playstation fans!

  • So if you have a PSPGo, or are planning to buy it through the PSN store, there’s no way to get the pre-order bonuses? That doesn’t seem like a very good plan.

  • Why are GT5, LBP2 and GOW all on November 2?
    I’ll just get GT5 and LBP2 first. :)

  • evildude683

    Awesome, I only need the game but the additional content sounds great.

    BTW: Kick [DELETED] is the worse movie of the year along with “the losers” and “Jonah Hex”

  • Is that the same dynamic theme from 7-11 promo with Kratos’ eyes or a new one? I like this trend of dynamic themes+PSN avatars as part of pre-order incentives.

    • Ken Chan

      The dynamic theme for the Ghost of Sparta pre-order is brand new! We’ll be showing a sneak peak of in a few weeks. Stay tuned

  • projectvii_89

    Damn. I really want this. And how does one go about getting this for his PSPgo?

  • MoneyMaker110

    i need a new psp and this fits the bill

  • Still pushing the knife deeper into the PSPgo and those who dared to get one.

    Way to go.

    If you won’t support it yourselves, then take it off the market. Don’t be like Apple.

  • OnesOwnGrief

    Anger: The Game PSP

  • ProjectInfiniti

    Will I be able to get the avatar and such today if I go pre-order right now from Best Buy or will it all not be available until the game officially releases?

    I really want the avatar under my account NOW! :)

  • Lol Kick [DELETED]. What a fitting name for a bundle like this

  • addyjones1234

    What about PSP Go owners? Same as GT PSP?

    • Ken Chan

      You’re exactly right. Similar to Gran Turismo PSP, for users with the PSP Go, simply purchase GOW Ghost of Sparta through the PSN Store during the first week of launch, and you’ll be rewarded with the same exclusive pre-order bundle

  • Now this is a better bundle. However, I just wonder why no bundles for the PSP Go. I believe, that’s Sony saying the PSP Go should have been the launch model instead of the PSP-1000 series? Come on Sony show some more love to the Go people.

    November is a Rocking month GT5 & God Of War Ghost of Sparta the 2nd. and 14 days later LBP2. No mentioning the multi-platform.

  • x_NiiGHTMARE_x

    Hi Ken-
    I want to take advantage of this pre order deal but i have a psp go… i cant use the actual disk. What do you suggest? besides buying another psp lol.

    • Ken Chan

      lol.. np. As noted above, just purchase GOW Ghost of Sparta the first week of launch, and you’ll receive the same exclusive pre-order bundle

  • hey, what about the one’s who have a PSP Go, it is not fair, all the special edition are released on UMD, why can’t you sell something like the Patapon 2, a case with the voucher and the rest of the goodies? and when the heck is Crysis Core goin to be available on the PSN? good support for us with a Go… Thanks Sony.

  • APVangeliLHS

    Hmmm.

    They should make a version that comes with a Download Voucher of the game instead, so the people who like digital, or have a PSPgo (like me) can also get in on these pre-order bonuses… :'(

    I give you lots of money and don’t get much support…

    Also, my PSP-3000 GoW:GoS Special Edition is A LOT cooler: http://www.fileden.com/files/2007/12/3/1623319//godofwarghostofspartapsp3000.png

    Just sayin…

  • ok wheres the PSP GO promotion ? hey its a first party title sony , you better give us a PSN promotion ASAP , why cant we ( psp GO owners) pre order the game on PSN in order to get all the DLC ?

  • ProjectInfiniti

    I have a Go, but I just want the DLC stuff and therefore I would like to throw $5-$10 to have this stuff now?

    Info about us Go owners would be appreciated!

  • Pre-ordered!
    Can’t wait!
    Love this deal!

  • I hate Virtual preorder bonuses, I know is easier for developers but sucks for collectors :(

  • I sure the PSP Go owners like me will get the package when the game is purchased on the PlayStation Store, that’s what happened for the pre-order bonuses for LBP PSP + I got all of the pre-order bonuses for the digital version!

  • slammajamma28

    If we pre-order the bundle, will we still get the stand-alone game’s listed pre-order bonuses?

  • I laugh at the thought of people who own a PSP GO. You should’ve realized that PSP GO = no more UMD. A lot of great games are not available as downloads and your PSP GO, like every computer, has a hard disk limit. UMDs at least allows you to save as much disk space as possible by having the games saved on separate small data disks. PSP GO is such a ripoff. PSP-3000 FTW! Can’t wait to pre-order this at my local GameStop!

  • @Mercenary09
    Probably mixing it up with some other high profile game then, it’s alot to choose from for that 1 date.

    DC Universe Online, that’s what I meant

  • If you pre-order the God of War Entertainment Pack will you get the pre-order DLC?

  • finally a dynamic god of war theme

  • what about us PSP Go owners?

  • Love the sound of the director commentary with all 5 of them. Any chance of this being available for those who download their games from the store.

  • awsome_robot

    Who is the marketing startegist genious that chose Nov. 2? Who is willing to pay for 3 to 4 highly anticipated games at the same time? Not to mention that the other games also come as a more expensive collector’s edition. Unless you guys are counting on the others having delays…

  • BurntOrange32

    Why isn’t anyone answer us PSPgo owners? Are we still going to be able to get this? Is it going to be the sort of thing where if we buy it within the first week we’ll get the content?

  • how about PSP Go owners? what do we get

  • F’ing awesome pre-order deal! For other companies, the extras would be their collector’s edition.

  • Pre-order for PSPgo owners such as myself? How can we pre-order and get the same bonuses?

  • That bundle sounds interesting! I haven’t bought Chains Of Olympus yet.

  • Sponge-worthy

    Any pre-order incentives for PSPgo owners?

  • mew_frenger

    psp go??

  • APVangeliLHS

    Ha, contrary to popular belief, looks like there actually ARE a lot of PSPgo owners.

    :-/

  • @41 Whoever bought a PSP Go is 1) Hard core gamer 2) got a sweet deal on it 3) Both (Me)

  • BurntOrange32

    I guess I’ll just make the safe assumption that PSPgo owners can still get this deal buy purchasing in the first week.

    Hopefully.

    Thanks for not mentioning *anything* about the PSPgo, or replying to *any* of the dozens of PSPgo owners.

  • Sony dont leave the psp go only owners out. such as myself

  • I am also interested in the pre-order for the PSP Go. Sony – please address this for us early adopters of your product.

    There are many things I like about the PSP Go but issues like this make me question my purchase.

    • Ken Chan

      Not a problem :) Check out the update above for PSP Go owners

  • PSP Go people actuly buy those? who knew!!
    But really it’s still four months away gives U enough time to save your lunch money. But the game will ROCK.

  • RAWKS RAWX ROCKS GET THIS NOW!

  • snaredrummer23

    lbp2 is on the 16th not the 2nd.

  • @46 if you bought a PSP Go… you must have money not the other way around and “PSP Go people actuly buy those” what do you mean… why else would they be PSP Go people lol

  • APVangeliLHS

    @46

    Saving lunch money, I know, I spent years saving for the $250 PSPgo…
