    Is God of War 3 actually coming out this year?  While lots are assuming so, I'm just not sure.  When have they said it was a 2009 title exactly?  All I know is that they have shown a CG trailer and then a short in game trailer.  Why is everyone assuming 09?  Perhaps this is why the Ps3's turnout isn't as good as it's hype ever?  Because we're pushing these games up?

    Most every site has it stated for TBA, I couldn't find any true announcements for it for 09 besides rumors.

    I could be wrong, but was it ever said to be coming in 2009?  Because this is something I really doubt.

    There's no reason why the development for God of War 3 would take so long as to be released in 2010. That's why.

    That's a big assumption.  Bungie has said that they've been working on their next game (the one after ODST) since they started developing Halo 3 (although not completely full throttle then) and it's going to be announced in later this year with a 2010 release date.

    The thing is, we've been assuming this way too much.  Do you know that Killzone 2 was suppose to be a launch title?  Then a 2007 game, then 2008?

    E3 is sometimes filled with big announcements. GDC is also coming up, could  announce a release there.

    They are hinting at the end of this year.

    I think it might, but Sony might want it pushed in 2010, we haven't heard of any big exclusives yet that will hit in 2010. Have we?

    Actually, we have.
    Final Fantasy 13
    Bungie's Untitled Game (not the odst one)

    granted, that's not what you were looking for.
    But I'm sure we already know half of sony's 2010.  It's half of the 2009 lineup.  GT5 and GOW3 are likely then.

    Final Fantasy XIII is not exclusive outside of Japan, where it's supposed to come out this year anyway.

    I think its too early in the year to know. But I do think GoW 3 has a very very good chance of being released this year, if its not then it will be released first half of 2010.

    But Gears 2 *just* came out (come on, I couldn't be the only one who read that as Gears of War 3).

    I think it has a good chance of coming out.  They've shown enough that they must have been fairly far along, if they hadn't shown anything from it then I'd say no way.  But it's true we don't know for sure, it just seems likely.

    People need to refer to Gears as just "gears or "gears2", god of war has mostly always been "GoW". Or just take a second longer and type it out.

    Anyway, I guess there has been no announcements of this at all, as you say, it may very well not come out to 2010. I would maybe guess though if it comes out this year, for it to be like, November-December from the lack of any knowledge about it. Then again, games have been able to sneak up on us before, so I guess no one knows. Just assume its gonna be delayed though as the more likely one of the two. Since that always happens.

    Or some people use "GeoW". I find the ambiguous usage very annoying too. I just hope "Girls of War" doesn't become a popular game.

    The biggest hint we have of a 2009 release is that Sony are holding a major "unveiling" event next month which a lot of American and European press are invited to. Many believe the game will be playable there and some sites like Kotaku have hinted at a release date in 2009.

    It's all hush, hush now though.

    I hope so, but I don't think they can. They just showed the trailer last E3, and if this game is set to surpass Killzone 2, I don't think it could be release late this year. Early next year at best.

    My guess is a late 09 or early 2010. They've been working on this game for a while, but there's no knowing how far along it is.

    They've already said FF13 wasn't coming out in the U.S or anywhere else except Japan until 2010. Already confirmed there. I think GoW3 might come out by the very end of 09, or beginning to mid 2010. I'm really not holding my breathe thinking its gonna come out this year though.

    The thing is Sony have: Gran Turismo 5, new Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain and God Of War III all touted for the end of 2009. They'd be silly if they released all of them. Something is going to have to be dropped.

    Hard to say. I think they will really try to release it before the end of 2009. But i have a feeling it will be pushed back to the first month or two or 2010

    I'm hoping for this year, as of right now Uncharted 2 is the only game I'm looking forward to on my PS3. But I would buy God of War 3 day one, no doubt.

    Yeah I believe it will be released in a few months, the last trailer we saw was already made in last fall (only published now though), so I'm guessing they are pretty advanced on the development!

    Considering they pretty much confirmed the trailer is a good few months old I'd agree.

    I'm assuming they virtually have the game built now and are just going to keep going through polishing it. I still think March 2010 will be the release date though.
