An embargo for God Of War III has lifted this afternoon, with much of the American press evangelising the game's opening scene
Kotaku describe the opening boss fight as "unforgettable", while Destructoid suggest "you're not ready" for it.
GameTrailers TV's Geoff Keighley has given the first hint on Sony Santa Monica's next project, simply stating on his Twitter page, "Wait until you see what they're doing next
" It comes in response to a fan's Tweet to Keighley, in which he stated "Can't believe how amazing God Of War III looks." God Of War III already appears to push...
We're torn by this God Of War III advert that will be shown in the UK
On one hand, it does everything you'd want it to: show the actual gameplay, show the scale, show the violence. On the other hand though, the narrator's voice is bloody ridiculous. We definitely think this trailer could do with an "Actual gameplay footage" note though, as...
For those of you who have followed David Jaffe's recent interviews with Kotaku and 4Guys1Up, you'll know the God Of War creator is yet to play the final version of God Of War III yet
So it's pretty interesting to see him react to the latest footage uploaded by GameTrailers TV yesterday. Obviously, whilst still not being directly connected to the...
The God Of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition comes with practically everything but the kitchen sink
That means you get some heavy metal with it, yo. You can totally sample those tunes by heading over to AOL Radio's, erm, Metal Mosh Pit (sigh) Station. We played one of the songs for all of, oooh, ten seconds. It was horrific.

God Of War III really will result in chaos
Not because of Kratos' plight, but simply because this baby looks better than every other video game out at the moment — every other non-Sony developer must be pretty nervous. The latest footage comes as part of a GameTrailers TV special, in which host Geoff Keighley visits Sony's Santa Monica studio,...
If you still haven't played the E3 demo of God Of War III, now's your chance
It's available on the European Playstation Store. Go download it if you've yet to try out the third iteration of Kratos' journey. It's a shame it's not a new demo, but that E3 build was mighty polished.
TheSixthAxis has stumbled upon the semi-complete list of trophies you can expect to unlock whilst playing God Of War III next month
As anticipated, the trophies sound particularly brutal, with unlocks for a 1,000 hit combo and beating the game on "Titan" mode. There are sixteen, presumably story related, secret trophies in addition to the...
Geoff Keighley's promised to blow the lid off God Of War III this week, with an episode of GameTrailers TV coming straight from Sony Santa Monica
In the teaser trailer Geoff promises an exclusive gameplay blowout, aswell as an interview with God Of War III director Stig Asmussen.
Sony's exclusive developers have once again shown why they are the some of the best in the world, announcing that God Of War III - despite being a complete graphical powerhouse - will not have a mandatory install like other PS3 titles
It'll need 5MB to save your game data, but, yo, we're sure you can spare that. God Of War III's due out next month.
In probably the most dull story to break over the weekend, Sony Santa Monica's tech-dude Tim Moss has announced that God Of War III is roughly 35GB in size
Amazing news, no? Erm. Ol' Timmy followed up by stating the European version is in the low 40's. "Thank goodness for Dual Layered blu-ray," he proclaimed. To which we respond — thank...
According to a Tweet from Sony Santa Monica's Christer Ericson, "God Of War III has gone gold [
.] Whee!" That means, valued readers, that the game is done, and is currently in production, ready for you grubby lot to get your greedy mitts all over it. Awesome.
The ESRB rating for God Of War III has outed the game's sex mini-game; a common staple for the God Of War franchise
The ESRB write:Players will encounter a goddess and her two hand maidens, all topless, all holding and caressing each other. If players wish to, they may join the goddess (and only the goddess) in bed. Actual sex is never depicted...
According to a listing on UK retailer GAME's website, anyone who preorders God Of War III before February 25th will get exclusive access to the demo that, well, most of us have already played
But if you haven't played it, hey, now's your chance right? Sony's committed to a public release of the demo in the future, but are yet to specify a date on...
Imagine the scene: you're climbing up Mount Olympus on the back of Gaia
You're in pursuit of Zeus and the Gods of Olympus. Gonna rip their heads off and stuff. Ahead of you, a legion of skeletal enemies approach you. You dip into the sack resting uneasily on your shoulder and... Lob pixie dust at them. Well it could have happened, as the iconic...
As promised, GameTrailers has just uploaded the new God Of War III trailer
It's full on mental. You could totally just watch it in the video we embedded above but we recommend clicking through and watching it in HD. Particularly the last 10 seconds or so, which are ridiculous.
It may still be a month off, but God Of War III has scored a nine in its first review via the UK's Official Playstation Magazine
In the review, Nathan Ditum notes, The game is inches away from scoring 10/10, and its only the familiarity of the core gameplay that makes it feel less than the very, very best." God Of War III's really good...
SCEE's revealed the packaging for the upcoming God Of War III Ultimate Trilogy edition
The package includes tons of goodies including God Of War III, the God Of War Collection, tons of game content, and audio bonuses. You can read more about the special edition through here.
SCEA's released a making-of video for the upcoming God Of War III
The document catalogues the development of one of the game's enemies - the Chimera. Those of you who have played the God Of War III E3 demo will have encountered the Chimera, a cross between a lion, a snake and a goat. There's also some footage of God Of War III's updated build; with...
Honestly, one of our favourite things about the original God Of War games has been the additional "making of" content
That sounds sorta dumb, we know, but we find that stuff fascinating. Obviously if the actual games weren't so good, we wouldn't care about it; but God Of War game are always good, so we're stoked to get that extra content...
God Of War III's passed rating in the UK with no cuts made
It scored an 18 from the BBFC. No surprise there for a game that has you ripping someone's head off. The God Of War Collection has also been rated at an 18. Better make sure you've got that fake ID* ready for March then, eh? *- PushSquare do not condone the act of using fake IDs. Sometimes
Sony are to market God Of War III on a range of Kratos-themed Slurpees if you buy your iced drink from any 7-Eleven convenience store
Cups will be laced with PS3 codes, including downloads for armour, dynamic themes and much more. The blackberry/lime flavours of Slurpee are to be entitled "Kratos Fury" right through February into March...
God Of War III is still without a date here in Europe, but SCEE has announced on the Playstation Blog that they're "aiming" for a launch on the same week as the US version
The US date was confirmed to be the 16th earlier, so that would likely mean the 17th in continental Europe and the 19th in the UK. We can't wait.
Finally the Playstation Blog has confirmed that God Of War III will launch on March 16th in the US
There will only be chaos, etc. That means the game will likely hit the UK on March 19th. There'll be a brand new God Of War III trailer debuting on GameTrailers this coming February 11th, so mark your diaries for that. Sony's also confirmed that the...
VG247 are reporting this morning that SCEE intend to release the God Of War Collection separately in the UK, outside of the God Of War III Ultimate Collection
They were coy on dates however. It really feels like SCEE have dropped the ball with the God Of War Collection. Not only is it effectively a means of printing money from a game already...
Despite rumours you may have seen floating around the 'Net today; SCEE has told us (and a few others) that the touted March 19th UK release date for God Of War III is merely a "tracking date", and not a confirmed release date
Sony are being rather coy with God Of War III at the moment; with the game presumably just a few months away, there's still a...
Hooray. GamersMint are reporting (via French sources) that the European God Of War III boxart has been finalised and is, well, an updated version of the boxart we really, really wanted last year. We're waiting on word from SCEE but, chances are, there's no-one in the office right now! We posted a potential US box here
God Of War III may still be awaiting its full pre-launch blowout (at least we have new screenshots, right?), but alas, that ain't stopping developers Sony Santa Monica from looking to the future
This is not the end of God of War, John Hight, Sony Santa Monicas director of product development told Gamervision. This is definitely the end of...
We haven't seen the latest God Of War III trailer, so we're in the same boat as you nice folks; chomping at the bit for footage
Still, some journalists have. In fact, the kind folks at GamesRadar have given a blow-by-blow account of the trailer we'll all get to see at, erm, some point - presumably the Superbowl. There's also a whole host of hands-on...
You know how the first two God Of War games were all about scale? Well see if you can spot Kratos in this latest screen
Seriously. Such is the magnitude of the Titan, well, consider our minds blown. This is an in-game screenshot from God Of War III. It's so good, we're questioning whether it's in-game at all. Seriously, just go to Joystiq and check...
Were you expecting a God Of War III trailer today? We sure as hell were. Sadly, the Playstation Blog's Jeff Rubenstein has clarified that while there will be new coverage tomorrow, that coverage won't include a new trailer. Maybe we'll get new screens or... something instead? Obviously some previews from Sony's event in USA. But really, we...
You're going to want to order the God Of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition to watch this "Unearthing The Legend" documentary, trailered today over at GameTrailers
Check the teaser after the jump. <object id="gtembed" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="468" height="380"...
Eagle-eyed IndianVideoGamers have found what they believe to be the US boxart for God Of War III
While kinda awesome, we preferred the "other" boxart that was tentatively shown off earlier in the year, but we did assume Sony would opt for a picture of Kratos looking angry.
Remember when people doubted whether God Of War III was going to be a good-looking game? You probably chuckled awkwardly, told them they were mad and shoved the Blades of Chaos through their heart
You were right to do so. Some new hi-res shots from Andriasang should tell you everything you need to know. A painting come to life. Indeed.
As far as we can fathom (being xenophobic Brits), 7-Eleven is a US gas station franchise that just so happens to sell video games
Sweet. Well, if you're looking to pre-order your copy of God Of War III from a gas station (or petrol station as we know 'em), you better be headed to 7-Eleven where you'll get a Kratos poster to sweeten the deal.
GameStop are listing the God Of War III date as March 16th, after details emerged regarding a Sony corporate email ovet at JustPushStart
With that date seemingly a lock, SCEE are claiming the European date is not far away. We should get another glimpse at God Of War III this month.
£110 sounds expensive but, let's take a breather and remember what you're getting in the God Of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition: three games (God Of War III, plus God Of War I & II remastered), a ton of extra PSN content (skins, characters, challenge modes), a full length documentary, two audio CDs, exclusive artwork, and a replica of Pandora's Box
Phew. So, SCEE has confirmed that the full God Of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition package will cost £110, with no plans to bundle just God Of War III with Colle...
In God Of War III you will fight Poseidon
Poseidon. Needless to say he looks absolutely immense. Look at the size of him! New God Of War III footage is due this month. Here's hoping it includes a snippet of this boss fight. Do we even need to say anything else? Hype x a billion plus one. More scans through here.
It's sequels we're excited for at the moment
Buzz for God Of War III, Killzone 3, inFamous 2 and Resistance 3 is extremely high in the office, and rumours in the latest US Playstation Official Magazine (via VG247) do nothing to quell our excitement. Reports from the magazine suggest that God Of War III custom PS3 system will launch alongside the...
In an exclusive interview with CVG, presumably fuelling the hype cogs a little, Sony's product manager for the game, Claire Blackhouse, has claimed that God Of War III is a "must have" and is "set apart" from other next-gen games on the market
She reckons that Sony's latest blockbuster provides "unmistakable realism". "God of War 3...
SCEJ has confirmed that Sony's blockbuster exclusive God Of War III will launch on March 25th in Japan
The game will available stand-alone, or as part of the God Of War Trilogy Edition, containing both GoWIII and the God Of War Collection. SCEJ also confirmed a re-release of Shadow Of The Colossus will be due on February 4th for ¥1,800. Still no...
It's becoming somewhat of a catchphrase this
"Only possible on Playstation 3." The latest game to adorn Sony's self-acknowledged accolade is God Of War III. According to comments made by Sony's Claire Blackhouse to CVG, "The developers have worked hard to use the power of the PS3 to make GOW3 look amazing and have added features that...
Apparently, in God Of War III, there will only be chaos
And nothing encapsulates that better than some artwork posted on NeoGAF this morning that depicts Kratos in a brutal entangle with Hades [right? - Ed]. Amazing. Oh, and if you wanted evidence God Of War III ain't all that far away - the website just launched.
This is more of a reminder to save any Christmas money you get this year; as Sony's exclusive line-up in Q1 is particularly strong
The company has confirmed that MAG will launch in January (29th), followed by Heavy Rain in February and God Of War III in March. It's also worth noting on the exclusives front, that White Knight Chronicles will also see...
We don't like blood
We certainly don't like metal (of the physical, or musical kind). But we sure as hell do like God Of War. Thus - the God Of War: Blood & Metal EP (which comes with the Collector's Edition of God Of War III) has us torn. Y'see, "popular" metal acts Killswitch Engage (who did that one song we didn't like), Dream...
SCEE has announced a lovely little God Of War III collector's edition heading to Europe this March
The pack includes, obviously, God Of War III and the recently US-only God Of War Collection among a host of other lucious goodies. The pack includes (deep breath): God of War III God of War Collection Extra PSN game content (God of War Combat Arena...
Sony snatched five awards at this year's VGAs
Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was the biggest winner, snatching awards for Best Graphics, Best PS3 Game, and the coveted Game Of The Year Award. PushSquare's closet favourite, flower, also got a nod, winning the best Independant Game award. God Of War III rounded out Sony's sweep, winning the...
PlaystationLifestyle just pointed out that there is a series of God Of War III content under-wraps after a recent Playstation event
According to information they've garnered from the Playstation Blog's Jeff Rubenstein, there's set to be a big God Of War III reveal in January. Sony has remained scarily tight-lipped about their biggest action property...
