Let's talk about God of War 3 - Breakdown & Analysis of VGA Trailer

Matt Leone, a 1UP Editor, analyzes the Spike VGA trailer and theorizes about what the final game may hold. He writes, "As many expected, the footage was short -- just about 20 seconds long, yet I've had five people AIM me so far, not a single one disappointed. What have we learned?"

The story is too old to be commented.

I am so buying god of war3 day 1.Who agress with me...

xhi43262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

DAY 1 baby yeahhh haha

@below - hell yeah!

360degrees3262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

Is he being sarcastic? or are we to believe that we should all follow blindly like sheep aboard the hype train, when countless users on many forums (both playstation and Xbox 360 Video Gaming Console oriented) have expressed huge disappointment, and a feeling of being letdown with this presentation of the supposed "Next Gen" God of War????

ultimolu3262d ago

This game will rock.
...I have butterflies in my tummy again.

Danja3262d ago

Playstation Owner here.."Im Not Disappointed"

The Teaser Trailer just got me more excited for this game...

Peter Griffin3262d ago

How can u preorder a game wit no release date? What's da rush for that matta jus preorder it sometime nxt yr its not like the chances of u retrieving a copy is determined by the time in whcih u preorder the title. A preordeer is xactly what it says......a preorder

40cal3262d ago

GameStop has been taking reservations on GOD OF WAR III for like 6 months now they had it listed for March 2009 and now have it listed for October 2009. Just because a game dose not have a release date dose not mean companies don't take pre-orders.

jaysquared3262d ago

God of War 3 isn't going to be as big as the PS3 fans here think. If God of War 2 only sold 2.35 million(according to vgchartz) on the PS2 which has an install of 120 million this will no way be as big as everybody will like it to be.

NDN_Shadow3262d ago

And it's justified. 1UP's Matt Leone only likes one game: God of War.

jwatt3262d ago

Jay it's not about the sells, it's sbout the game just being pure awesome. No game will be touching GOW 3!

Sarcasm3262d ago


GOWIII could sell one copy for all I care, just as long as it's mine.

Aclay3262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

@ Jaysquared,

Do you think I give a damn about sales? NO. All I care about is the game itself.

Metal Gear Solid 3 sold only a little over 3 million units on the PS2 and the PS2 had a huge installbase, but Metal Gear Solid 4 sold over 4 million units in several months on the PS3 alone with a installbase of about 17 million.

You cannot look at the PS3's installbase and just "assume" how well God of War 3 will sell. If God of War 2 sold over 2 million, God of War 3 will sell just as much, if not more and that's good enough for me.

You Xbox 360 fanboys make it seem like a game has to sell 5-8 million just to be a "success", but I could care less. The only thing that matters to me is getting God of War 3 in my hands and God of War 3 is going to be awesome, now get the HELL out of this thread.

OrganicMachine3262d ago

but you're dumb enough or maybe uneducated about how marketing works..

there's that little think called "TARGET AUDIENCE" .. God of War's target audience are Mature, probably ages 17 and up, Has to love Action games, preferably Hack n Slash, Loves Greek Mythology, Likes the Third Person Perspective, and Loves Gore, and lots of it..

well if you take those elements into consideration, that's probably about a small-medium chunk off the supposedly 120million install bas of PS2..

oh and don't forget about Location.. and the, umm what's that word... cultural or religious background of people.. a good christian/muslim/<insert religion here> parent/person won't buy this game for their children, sibling, friend, or themselves..

DarK-SilV3262d ago

AclayPS3 agreed Also it's going to sell consoles, because it’s a proven game with big fan base being released in a new console

interrergator3262d ago

im gettin high the day i get it

PS3 FTW3262d ago

Teaser Tralier definition from Wikipedia:

"A teaser trailer, or teaser is a short trailer used to advertise an upcoming movie, game or television series.
Teasers, unlike typical theatrical trailers, are usually very short in length (between 30–60 seconds) and usually contain little if any actual footage from the film/game."

Was anyone expecting a 10 minute gameplay trailer with in-depth detail about the gameplay mechanics and controls? NO!

We all expected 10-20 seconds of gameplay from a game that still has 1 YEAR to polish itself.

cRaZyLeGs 933262d ago

That trailer wasn't good imo.

fishd3262d ago

Pathetic idiot,So when you were playing Bioshock last year you were like : "Man this could have been a lot more better if it'd sold a few more million copies",amiright?

gameraxis3262d ago

everybody, look at the second "tiny pic" doesn't the backround look efing crazy, and at first i was baffled, but it will be another killzone scenario, people doubting then BAM...

dj_funky3262d ago

i'm breaking up with my gf when this game comes out.

gaffyh3262d ago

@360degrees - it looks good, but not as good as I expected, but it's an early development trailer. I mean David Jaffe said he saw a later build than this trailer (and that was a while ago too), so I'm pretty sure that things have progressed. Still though I'm really hyped for this game.

No Way3262d ago

Ha. You'd be surprised (or maybe not o.O) how many people on this site care about Sales, of both games and consoles.. And, it's not just 360 fanboys, bro.

Anyway, I could care less how much a game sells, if the game is good, then all I care about is getting my hands on a copy.. And, if God Of War 3 is anything like GoW1&2 then I definitely want God of War 3 in my hands!!

@DarK-SilV - Please don't start with that bullspit about how a game is going to sell consoles.. You said the same thing with LBP and GTA4. I do agree, it will sell consoles, but please.. just shut up already, geez.

jaysquared3261d ago

Funny how PS3 fans don't care about sales anymore when last gen and just a few years ago everybody was saying PS2 sold 100 million plus, Xbox 25 million GC 20 million... Now sales don't matter huh? Ok lets just keep the PS3 sales at 25 million and see if Sony comes out with the PS4!

DaTruth3261d ago

The textures haven't been put into the game yet, that's the problem. Without textures any game will look like a PS2 game. They have amazing lighting and they're probably gonna put in the textures and particle effects later(or now as this is probably an old build). What do you think they do for the last year of development...beta test.

Was the newer camera likey

caladbolg7773262d ago

As a proud PS3 owner, from this trailer, God of War III looks pretty lackluster. Uncharted 2's teaser was a hell of a lot more impressive.

Ju3262d ago

I agree, however I think its an early shot. Character models were awesome, but not whole lot more was there to bee seen. In due time, in due time. Its GoW. It will carry its legacy. Fore sure.

SuperM3262d ago

Uncharted trailer was more impressive. But i think its pretty obvious that the game will look better then that. And some parts of the game already does, as Jaffe pretty much has confirmed. I think the trailer looked very good, but the character model of kratos wasnt very impressive. I think if the character model looked better then everyone would be impressed by the trailer.

Also the chief of playstation in norway was interviewed a few days ago, and he said that god of war 3 will have graphics you never thought possible. Unlike many other leaders this guy is actually a true gamer, so i trust his word for it.

Besides the game seems to be running at 1080p at 60fps. Atleast the PSN trailer was 1080p, and that is very impressive. Is there any other action game out there running 1080p?

Beast_Master3262d ago

You are crazy right? I mean how much better can you make Kratos? Dude the only thing that you can't make out on his character model is how big his pecker is which I am just guessing is what you are refering to right.

Please explain how seeing ever muscle fiber, every scar etc. is a bad character render? I just want what you are smoking considering I have yet to see the game in full HD, I am surprised people are not excited at what appeared to me to be large improvements over the PS2 games graphics.

TheHater3262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

It is going to be fricken GREAT being a PS3 owner next year.

Edit: I better start saving for all the games I will be getting next year. I have already counted 2 games for the Xbox 360 and 9 PS3 games I am getting.

El_Colombiano3262d ago

Wow, you're buying all the exclusive games 360 has to offer next year?

Haha I kid...I kid. Now disagree!

TheHater3262d ago

Actually I am buying Fable 2 because I have yet to buy that game. And the other game might be Mass Effect 2 if it is release next year. If not, then I am only getting one game for the xbox 360 next year.

As for the PS3. I am getting Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, White Knight, WarDevil, Infamous, New Ratchet and Clank, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, and Jak and Dexter. That not including the PSN games I will get getting, or the multi-platform games.

Beast_Master3262d ago

I almost broke down and bought a 360 this year for Gears 2, it is still to expensive at $475 bucks, unless they throw in free wi-fi and 1 year live and charge station. But seeing the release schedule for next year there is no reason to buy a 360. Mass Effect 2 may be multi-plat considering it is now an EA franchise. Unless you are a Halo fan, there really isn't any reason to pick up a 360 next year.

xhi43262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

Wardevil + Infamous + God of War 3 + Gran Turismo 5 + Killzone 2 + Resident Evil + Final Fantasy + Uncharted 2 + MAG + New Insomniac Game + Heavy Rain = Huge Dent in My wallet!

Oh AND WHITE KNIGHT haha how could I forget?

+ Assassains Creed 2 (if its good)

Street Fight 4? its gud but not my kind of 100 dollar woth it game (games are expensive here in oz)

Cajun Chicken3262d ago

The 'new Insomniac game' is Ratchet and Clank Future: 2.

TheHater3262d ago

Don't get your hopes up for Final Fantasy XIII outside of Japan next year. You aren't interested in White Knight?

Nogames08_09_360RROD3262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

Don't forget about Street Fighter 4.

I live in Australia aswell, fken GST.

Sarcasm3262d ago

That's over $715 worth of games, and that's only a "Dent" in you're wallet?

Who are you Bill Gates? lol j/k

But yeah, '09 is gonna be just as expensive as '08 if not more.

No Way3262d ago

"That's over $715 worth of games, and that's only a "Dent" in you're wallet? Who are you Bill Gates? lol j/k"

Bill Gates has so much money he loses his wallet full of cash, on purpose, just because he doesn't want to carry the old 2007 money anymore..

Bots denial would be damn.

Only on PS3.

Nogames08_09_360RROD3262d ago

the funny thing is the Bots think God of War 3 (the real GoW), Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 have a chance of comming to Xbox. Then they put like a million disagrees and take your bubbles when you tell them Sony owns the companies that make these games. Microsoft DON'T own EPIC Games, Gears of War 3 here we come on my ps3.

BLUR1113262d ago (Edited 3262d ago )

your type of lameness

only on N4G.

and no epic will not port gears of war because that will loosen their development and they have way too much passion for their art. they are not like EA

Nogames08_09_360RROD3262d ago

your type of gayness

only with PP.

gamfreak3262d ago
