God of War 3 Media Avalanche

1 min read


Yesterday there was nothing be said about God of War 3 anywhere and yet I wake up this morning and it’s all over the place. I can only imagine there was a NDA that we weren’t privy too.

First up we have some magazine scans which someone has prefixed with a spoiler warning but since I can’t read Japanese I am perfectly safe. Obviously it’s a scan so the graphics are nothing to shout about but you get to see some of the characters and the shear scale of the game quickly becomes apparent.

Next up we have a rumoured American release date which would mean we would be around that same time. According to Gamestop Kratos will be arriving on the 16th of March which is 9 days before it’s previously announced Japanese release date. I honestly don’t expect it to land in America first but you never know.

And lastly we have a new posting telling us that God of War 3 will blow Uncharted’s graphics out of the water. But really this is just fanboy nonsense and he is generally comparing in game Uncharted 2 graphics to CGI marketing renders.


I for one doubt the above image will be seen as live action in game but we can always hope it will.

The last God of War news we have is that the God of War collection is going to cost 115 pounds in the UK when it gets released, which works out to a slightly eye watering R1 300 when it arrives in March.

As usual we have no information regarding a local launch but if we stumble across some you guys (and girls) will be the first to know.

There are 2 games that accurately define the PlayStation lifestyle, one is Gran Turismo and the other is God of War.  The idea that both these big hitters will land in March is hard to believe and I would hands down prefer God of War over GT.

Mark my words though, one of them is going to get delayed.

    “I for one doubt the above image will be seen as live action in game but we can always hope it will.”

    That scene is straight out of the playable demo. There’s this annoying guy on a chariot (helios i think) flying around the big guy.

      I truly hope I am completely wrong… but I can’t see it beating Uncharted’s graphics when you look at the scale that they are trying to bring us.

        I really don’t think it will.

        I mean i played the demo and it just didnt have the wow effect that U2 had. yes the scale of everything was awazing in GoW but the detail just wasn’t there (in comparison to U2)…

        I don’t think a very open/large scale game can compete graphics wise to a more up close and personal type.

        I am expecting Heavy Rain to come closer to U2 graphics than GoW.

    i have to agree with rsa-ace, the demo’s graphics were insane. i could see no difference between cut scene and actual game play.
    god of war 3 will undoubtedly be better than uncharted 2 in terms of graphics… but not by much though.

    This : http://gamingbolt.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/gow3.jpg is not an in-game shot.

    Whilst the demo’s graphics are top notch, the overall detail of the world doesn’t match that of Uncharted 2. Obviously the final game will be more polished so time will tell.

      On closer inspection those Uncharted 2 shots are really blurry for some reason. So I don’t know why the would choose to compare a set of blurry UC2 shots to compare against crisp GOW3 shots.

    Trust me guys UC2 has breath taking graphics. Im almost done with it and hope the 3rd installment will be even better!!!

    Best game ive played this generation. I doubt GOW will be able to compete unless ND gave them some hints and tips how to code like they did

      no for sure UC2 is an awesome game, and more suited to the game play i prefer. definitely a worthy candidate for goty if not gotd.
      but from a graphical point of view, god of war will really be pushing the limits of what we’ve become accustomed to.

      i reckon come the next gen of consoles (excepting the wiiHD), will will be delving into the murky realm of hyper realism.
