God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta Hitting November 2

Posted by BradNicholson (812 posts) -
God of War: Ghost of Sparta will ship right about the time you start thinking about all the games you wanted for Christmas that were delayed into Q1 2011. Earlier this afternoon, SCEA confirmed on the official PS blog that the PSP brawler, which is being developed by God of War veterans Ready at Dawn, will hit stores on November 2, 2010. It'll be a good stocking stuffer, wouldn't you say?

Of course, there will be pre-order bonuses. There are always pre-order bonuses. If you decide to slide some cash to Amazon.com, Best Buy, or GameStop in advance of the release date, you'll get access to a bundle that includes an official soundtrack, a downloadable PSP and PS3 theme, a PSN Avatar, a special "Legionnaire" in-game skin, and a game director's documentary which includes commentary from notable directors David Jaffe and Stig Asmussen, as well as others. 
 


And, hey, wouldn't you know it?. There'll be a PSP bundle as well. Dubbed the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack, the $200 bundle will include a black and red PSP-3000, a UMD version of Ghost of Sparta, a download voucher for God of War: Chains of Olympus, a 2GB Memory Stuck Pro Duo, and a copy of a UMD version of Kick Ass (the movie).

I'm sold on the Kick Ass UMD alone.

This and Kingdom Hearts Birth by sleep will ensure my psp gets some action over the next few months 

#32 Posted by Junpei (724 posts) -

The GoW formula started getting stale for me as of late but the commentary from all the directors would be pretty cool to listen to
#33 Posted by Bakumatsu (354 posts) -

Glad I just bought a PSP.

#34 Posted by dvdwalker8 (363 posts) -

#41 Posted by phrosen (143 posts) -

Oh boy, more underperforming PSP-titles

#42 Posted by sarahsdad (1078 posts) -

shoot. I loved the first one on PSP. I guess it's not a good sign for any console when there's only one game that I'm interested in on it.

#43 Posted by stokerd (48 posts) -

No more. Please.

#44 Posted by McQuinn (651 posts) -

So much war

#45 Posted by NeoGamer (158 posts) -

Chains of Olympus was one of the few good PSP games developed in the west. Looking forward to this one. And the bundles are not that bad, except that these special colors for the PSP are always awful.

The greek with anger issues are here again !

#47 Posted by the_r0n1n_named_47 (158 posts) -
