"If you could ask Kratos ANY question about #GodofWar Ascension SP or MP, what would it be? He will select his favs for a special video"

This should be good!

Kratos is going to select HIS favorites? That should be a bloody good time.

read this from ONE of SSM staff :
Hey guys,

" Glad you are digging our short SP teaser. This is actually our first TV commercial as well. I've posted the US first-run schedule below in case you guys want to feel the epicness on your HD TV's during these glorious shows and events below.

We've got plenty more, so let this whet your appetites and start counting down the days to March 12.

Course, if you like what you saw, then don't let the Gods call you a fool, pre-order to get FREE CONTENT - http://www.godofwar.com/pre... yea yea, I may be selling out there for a moment, but in the end, I want you get to get all the awesome stuff we are creating for you.

I am going to keep my lips sealed tight right now about what you saw in the trailer, i'll just say...that's barely...barely scratching the surface. You know what we do. we do God of War, it can only be EPIC...there can be, only chaos!

I will say, every shot in there is gameplay footage, NO CG (except the obvious stylized intro). "

and this

" http://www.godofwar.com/gam...


Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to the best-selling God of War franchise. Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved. Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken... Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family.

As far as SCALE goes...don't underestimate us, hehe. The opening of the game will have an EPIC God of War "scale". It'll be a different type of "scale" feeling than GOW 3 with Poseidon, but you'll know what I mean when you play it.

-Tank "

and this

" Yes, 30 seconds right now, really...that's how we roll. We've got plenty of time to ramp up and have far more in store, this is just the beginning.

Did someone say snake scales in the background =) One of the true powers of a God of War game, is things are not always what they may seem...

Tank "

And people thought the SP was going to be garbage cause of MP right? Just look at some articles from last week.

Kratos never fails.

oh and Sony Santa Monica is amazing.

kratos was slaying a dragon . yes.
doctorstrange  +   559d ago
Dovahkiin wouldn't stand a chance against Kratos, that's for sure

Haha should be pretty funny.
soljah  +   558d ago
best part
kratos saying ONLY ON PLAYSTATION haha
Obnoxious_Informer  +   558d ago
How do you keep your goatee so perfectly styled? Where hair go? Why so smooth? I have various questions concerning Kratos' grooming regime.
dafegamer  +   559d ago
Seriously Santa Monica and Naughty Dog are some sort of magicians. They seem to squeeze out ps3 power till the last drop. Lol and people were saying that in when MGS4 launched in 2008, the ps3 graphic power is impossible to be better than that. One year later Uncharted 2. Another year the mindblowing GOW3, which still owns games that came out last year

The new environments are so gorgeous. Kratos' new character model looks incredible. They've made massive improvements to his facial animations. Really liking how much better they've made the human characters look as well.

The bosses they've shown so far are looking absolutely epic.

Without a doubt, this'll be one of the best looking games this year, if not the best. This teaser just made the wait unbearable.

I wanted a trailer, though. Not enough with this TV spot!

Now the ignorant cry babies can stop crying. Sp will be epic as usual and mp brutally addictive and beautiful. Mp doesnt take anytging away from a game if left in the right hands if anytging it adds replay value and longevity.

Never doubted SMonica as they knw the ps3, have the resources and are competent enough to make a great sp and mp experience. You have devs like ND and SM that are just tht gd then you have others that add mp and dnt knw wtf their doing and still get a free pass on reviews (cough cough ubisoft)

Looks fantastic
Tontus  +   558d ago
This game is going to be incredibly awesome, I have the Collector's Edition pre-ordered and am counting down the days for my 2013 GOTY to arrive! Sony Santa Monica are legendary and I wish them huge success with this game and all their future titles.
Riderz1337  +   558d ago
I love this. All the people complaining about them focusing on multiplayer are eating their own words right now. Did you really think Sony Santa Monica would disappoint? You crazy bro?!?!
