The Playstation 3 Guys report: "I came across two rather interesting job listings on Gamasutra.com that pertained to God of War III. Could these job listings be proof that unlike what Sony is reporting, that GOW III won't be released until 2010?"
Actually extends to 2010, nevertheless we still have 10 months to go.
Very, very true bro. Still..this is a God of War game. Who would want Sony to rush a title as big as this and have it flop so all the Xbox fans can rub it in our faces? Plus these are both very big roles to be filled. As much as I want it (And Sony needs it) to released this year, 2010 seems much more likely.
It's all good,the PS3 has more than enough games this year to keep us all busy until God Of War III arrives.
If it comes out this year, Awesome! If it comes out next year, it means that they 're taking their time polishing the game. Awesome! Either way, we win.
I thought we all knew this wasn't gonna hit in 09?
09 really isnt looking good at all right now. SO4 ,RE5 and prototype are really the only games that are worth while that we know for sure are being released in 09
well if it doesn't arrive in this year..big deal..Uncharted 2 and Ratchet & Clank will certainly hold fill the SP gap for the while.. and having GOW3 to start off 2010 would be huge on Sony's part I'll rather a great game..ne day over a rushed game..
I hope that won't be a problem but no matter what it will be nice that they put more time into the game and do another bad @$$ looking game and fun to play like the other two GoW.
...sighs with relief. Look forward to it whenever it drops.
Killzone 2, then InFamous, then GT5 (Am I correct?), then NBA 2K10?, then Uncharted 2, and hopefully Ratchet? Yeah there's plenty of games this year already. PLUS there's Modern Warfare 2 :).
Please dont take offense. But bro, there is something seriously wrong with your logic. not to mention this doesn't even establish association, let alone causality. First, Sony Santa Monica is listing two senior position jobs this year, and from that you assume God of War III won't make 2009. Do you see a problem with your logic? Exactly, there was none. How the hell does that mean anything? Let me list two things this can mean just in case you are actually thinking and not just cut and pasting job listings to boost traffic to your blog. 1. Sony Santa Monica has more than 1 project going on, they are not just making God of War. Your argument just got owned. 2. Sony is doing internal reshuffling. Maybe they got all the animations down for God of War already, and they are moving two senior guys to another studio like Naughty Dog or they are moving the two senior guys right now to form a whole new studio, so they are hiring replacements for Santa Monica. Your argument got owned second time. 3. As you see from the GoW Trailers, they got the animations down pretty smooth already and now they are hiring a extra senior animator. And you are saying the game won't hit till 2010 just base on that? Who the [email protected] was animating Kratos all along? ONE person doesn't make the whole team fall apart, maybe they wanna fire the current guy who's slacking off. Your argument got owned a third time. 4. Hiring new Sr officers has nothing to do with the game's release window when you have 150 other people already working on the game for 2 years and they already know what to do. There are always Junior staff that has the ability of a Sr staff but is kept under the water because they lack the seniority (in terms of empolyed time); these guys can always step up on the plate and finish the project. Kind of like GoW 2 when Jaffie left. Fourth time..owned. 5. Ok, so what if all of the above were not true and I am full of Sh!t? Well THERE YOU GO! I just did exactly what you did on ur blog. FULL OF SH!T; one man speculation base on some random job listing and you infer the game's release window with absolutely NO knowledge how far they are in development and what kind of leadership guidance they need on a day to day basis (maybe they are pretty independent and don't even need an senior staff because the director did such a good job). So congratulations, this is not news; rather change ur damn title to SONY SANTA MONICA OPENING TWO NEW SR JOBS. U can't even say for God of War III, because how do you know they are not working on a DLC small game for PSN. --- Back to normal mode --- So yah bro, good job finding the two new positions, so in a sense that was the only news worthy part of the post. I will be interesting to see what they are working on. or if hiring two new guy will actually help SPEED UP the project so they make the 2009 release date. Game on.
Also, those positions have been posted since October 2008.
No offense taken, bro. I did jump the gun a little bit and I apologize.
no need for apologies i approved the article bc it had news worthy items in it, not some totally random bullcrap. And i was venting for the sake of venting, nothing more. keep up the blog.
what the hell is devil's abacus?... do you mean devil's advocate?
playstation3guy, seriously? seriously? dont mind going out on a limb huh?
its already confirmed for 2009 it came straight from sony
i kinda don't want it to. the longer it stays in development the better it'll look and the better it'll be...i actually want it to be here in 2010
Being a first time heavy hitter for the franchise on this gen they can take the extra time. Uncharted is the 2nd game they are releaseing so they have an established process they can work with and improve. This is Kratos' moment of truth.
"i kinda don't want it to. the longer it stays in development the better it'll look and the better it'll be...i actually want it to be here in 2010" ...and the more money we can save up until it's release...2009 is already too amazingly and incredibly crowded
I'm gonna kill the dude whoever invented blogs!!
I'm interested in how good the GOW3 HD boobs will look. I say that not as a pervert but honestly wondering how the power of PS3's graphics will make them look. Will they be saggy? Will they be perky? Will they look plastic and fake? Because in all honesty the time frame never has been one to have fake plastic Hollywood made boobs because there is no Hollywood. But anyway since lust is practically religion to the time associated to GOW I hope the smut is champ :) Yes my friend below you are correct. Boobies do rock and I would gladly trade trophies or gamer points for the chance to be awarded boobs anyday :)
"I know this is going to sound bad" Don't be afraid to speak your mind and worry others will persecute you. Boobies ROCK! >,<
doesn't even matter to me...i can wait till 2010 to play GOW3 There's already plenty of sony exclusives being released this year which even without GOW3 make this year an epic win for sony...but something tells me we haven't seen anything yet and that 2010 will be even bigger...Team Ico? Resistance 3? God of War 3? GT5? The unveiling of Kingdom Hearts 3?...and many many moreee... also, I thought GOW3 was a fiscal year 2009 release, which means it can arrive up to the end of March 2010 if i'm not mistaken
and get some more quality polish and development time. I wouldn't have said that before, but after looking at the 2009 line-up I don't really see myself hunting for games to play. Killzone 2, MAG, Heavy rain, inFamous, new Ratchet and Clank, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, DC online MMO, White Knight Chronicles, Demon Souls, Wardevil, Dragon Age: Origins, Quantum Theory, Uncharted 2, and I can't even begin to name everything. Those are just FEW that I'm personally looking forward to. Not to mention that there are still games out right now that I would like to get like Motorstorm 2, Burnout: Paradise, and several others. You also gotta think of what might be in the cards for next year. It is also looking to be a bang-up incredible year. If God of War came next year that would still be awesome as then you would have that and also possibilities of games like Twisted Metal, something along the lines of Warhawk 2, Final Fantasy 13, and probably a new game from Team Ico (unless they announce a title for THIS year). So...ummm, yeah. I totally would not mind if God of War 3 didn't make it until next year. All that would mean is two years in a row of complete awesomeness for PS3 owners!
mean they trying to get it done faster? meaning quicker release? But who knows I would probably say that it would release next year anyway wouldnt mind rather a more polished release then a rushed 1.
Well, it IS the Delaystation 3 as well as the Suckstation 3, Gaystation 3, Failstation 3, Crapstation 3. So I wouldn't be surprised if it's delayed.
There are enough good games this year. Guys I know how you feel, it is insane time to be a pS3 owner right now. But please calm the [email protected] down!! Because after GDC, Sony Gamer's Day, E3, Leizig, and TGS 2009's THERE WILL BE MORE UNANNOUCED TITLES TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2010!!! Think back about 1 year, u didn't know much about Infamous or GOW III or Demon Soul. There are always more craps coming out! FFXIII and Versus as well. :) Let the party begin!
only on ps3. I'm still busy with KZ2, SF4, MAG, uncharted 2, FF13vs
I think the following quote gives us a good idea of what is really going on. _____________________________ _______________________________ QUOTE: "Maintains the artistic goals and vision through all phases of the game development cycle from pre-production through final product release. This entails ensuring animation assets are of the highest artistic quality and uphold the integrity of the games design and artistic vision of the game as a whole." _____________________________ _______________________________ This sounds more like they are hiring for a new IP. So it's looks like they are getting ready to ramp up production on another game. This means that 2011 will likely see another great game emerge.
It distinctly says "Join the God of War III team!" on both listings.
They should delay it because the grafixs dont look to good.
even w/o GOW3, the PS3 2009 lineup poops all over the 360 lineup. we're kinda spoiled: our problem is that there are too many great games coming up so delays are absolutely no problem :)
This news is a joke, maybe they're hiring someone for the next game in development?? I know pre-production usually starts on a next title while the other game is being finished. From what i read these jobs seem to be more in-line with pre production. God of war 3 is probably still on track to make 2009, it could slip sure; but this news tells us nothing of the sort.
I provided links to BOTH listings. They both read "Join the GOW III team!" Honestly, I want it to hit in 2009 as much as you do. But hey, Sony has a crapload of other Triple A titles releasing this year, so if it doesn't, It'll save me $60, lol.
Keep it in the oven until it is good and ready. No need to rush, plenty of other great stuff already coming out this year!!!
"Proof that God of War III won't hit in 2009" What are you? a Lawyer?!... "I find Sony guilty for Delaying a potentially Great game til' 2010! but won't admit to it! so therefore, shell be sentenced to MicroPrison for a year with no further contact with their first party developers!!!" LOL! Who gives a Damn! just as long as the game turns out as Awesome as we all expect, I think I can manage to survive a few more months without playing it...
I wish web sites would stop creating non-stories just to get hits. Its really getting annoying
I hope they do push this to 2010 . I have a lot of games am already buying for 2009 so I want to have time to play them all ..lets start 2010 with a bang like 2009 @slipneir ......Dude come with something original. Your saying the same shlt thats on every board. When you read other boards don't you find it annoying .I have a ps3 and I can come up with something better to degrade the ps3 .
Who cares.... Well look at Killzone 2... more time in development = Better polished game... Case closed!
I'll take this game when it's completed to the satisfaction of the amazing people at Santa Monica and not a moment before. If that means around this time next year then so be it.
