PushSquare.com: "Sony are having a big press event for God Of War III this week. On Friday all the information from said event will spill out onto the Internet. These are just a few things we'd like to find out about the game:
New gameplay videos/previews. We got a sure preview of God Of War III late last year at the VGA's. While some were moderately underwhelmed we were somewhat satisfied. Kratos looked great and the gameplay distinctively similar. The saddest part about the trailer for us was that it ended after approximately 20 short seconds. We're ready for more now. We're also assuming the press are going to get their hands on the game so we're awaiting their impressions with bated breath.
God Of War II in HD? One of the biggest worries in the back of a majority of gamers heads is diversity. Will God Of War III essentially be it's predecessors in shiney graphics. While we're not entirely sure a HD remix of the mythological franchise would be a bad thing we hope Santa Monica have plenty of new improvements and gameplay variations to tantalise us with. All while keeping the core God Of War experience close to heart of course.
The "Jaffe" trailer/level. Ex-God Of War producer David Jaffe has been very vocal about God Of War III. Very vocal. We quote: "I ain't no fan boy but this mother f***ing game looks like nothing you've ever played…and you can hold me to that when this thing hits and when they start showing gameplay footage." Following the release of the VGA trailer many called out Jaffe's claims at which point he defended his claim arguing Santa Monica had shown him something else. We want to see
Story/plot details. Pretty straightforward this. We want a little more context to the game and which characters, weapons and environments we can expect to encounter in the game.
Rough release date. We're aware games can slip down the release calendar and that pretty much all release dates should be treated with scepticism but we'd still like a rough timeframe for this game. March 2010 or Fall '09. Hopefully Sony will let us know.
