I'm sticking with March 2010..
I dont believe this for a second. Why would they release this 15 days after the most profitable holiday. March or before Xmas makes the most sense.
I hope this game goes against Mass Effect 2 so it gets slaughtered.
@ Saren Arterius Why would you want Mass Effect 2 to get slaughtered? There's room for all games.
Who would release a game in January. That's the month we all beat the games we got for Christmas.
Wait. Did you just come into a PS3 article and troll? Clever you... God of War is a guaranteed AAA title that'll sell an easy 3mil copies. Mass Effect is a b-movie with mediocre gameplay sprinkled on it. Uncharted and Little Big Planet are bigger games than Mass Effect! Uncharted- 2.34mil Little Big Planet- 2.21mil God of War 1-3.26mil Mass Effect- 2.04mil http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
Ya you wouldn't want to release a game just a matter of days after everyone spent all their money on Xmas. March 2010 is a much better date.
Lol, God of War III would rip Mass Effect 2 in half for health orbs.
LOL @ the kids. RAAAAAAAAAAAGE!
Yea....so, we're kids because you are bringing up an entirely unrelated game in an attempt to troll? Go back to bed, Junior. No supper for you tonight.
If I had to choose GoWIII or Mass Effect 2. I'd go with GoWIII. I like my frame rates polished and stable. OoOOOh take that! lol
@ devilsoultaker1 It could be likely, i mean sony did release heavenly sword a day or 2 apart from halo3. Wasnt the smartest descision...
im going to remind you when god of war comes out its suppose to sell 3 million titles can you plz give a time frame since i dont want any BS saying that marketing was bad for this game or any lame killzone 2 excuse
Because that right there would make your whole comment invalid. God of War 3 is going to sell over 3 million copies(lifetime), and please quote me on that.
uncharted is a pack in game which prior to was only at 1.4 million. gow 2 sold 2.46 which is down from gow 1 which you clearly left out. chains of olympus is 1.73 which is down from gow 2. LBP IS the only one truly beating Mass effect and ME wasn't even released in japan till last week.
Sony Rep uncharted was sold as a packed in game so like 2 million copies of it were given away. God of war 1-2 was sold on a system with 120 million install base. That leave lbp barely out selling it and mass effect was released early in the 360 when it still had a small user base and it was release in the shadow of halo 3. LBP was sony big holiday game and it only sold 2.21 Halo 3 was MS big holiday for the time frame the Mass Effect was release and it sold 9.66 million As for god of war 3 I agree with caliblue15 march of 2010
MGS3 sold 4 million on PS2 with install base of over 100 million ,but MGS4 sold 4.5 in 6 month(now maybe 5 million) on Ps3 with install base of 17 million at the time of release, so what is your point, What matter the most is the fan of the series not the install base, even thought the install base matter ,it work both way
I think March as well but man if it released on January 13th that would awsome bc thats just 1 day before my Birthday XD
I heard a rumor it releases the day before Christmas
Okay, even if God of War 3 comes out 2morrow morning, would it really matter?? MW2 is gunna be the best-selling, most popular game of the year regardless. I honestly wouldn't mind if it came out next summer. I'll be too busy playing Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2. Personally I thk neither side should talk trash. 360 fanboys can't talk trash because PS3 has more AAA exclusives and PS3 fanboys can't talk trash because as many AAA exclusives as we have, none of them are gunna sell more than Halo 3 or Gears 2 FACT. AND NO, I'm not a troll. Just PS3 owner who isn't afraid of pointing out the strengths AND weaknesses of my preferred coNSOLE.
Every game coming out this year could kiss my ass if God of War 3 released tomorrow.
its like you assume EVERYONE wants, no, loves shooters and only shooters and every other game might as well be cancel'd well guess what? i wont be getting MW2, i will get uncharted 2 because of the gameplay/story and GOW 3 because gameplay/story not all of us are 12 year olds who live for the headshot
Mind you, I'm only 5 months in to my fairly new PS3, but I haven't gotten my hands dirty into COD yet. Also, While I agree that GOD OF WAR 3 will probably do about 3-4 millionish numbers, and most PS3 games will not outdo Gears or Halo, there's 1 game that might that you didn't reference...... GRAND TURISMO 5 very well could, and trends say it will. Just food for thought.
PS3 fanboys CAN talk trash! Not that we should, but we could. Why? Because Halo or Gears still haven't outsold ANY Gran Turismo!! Gran Turismo 3 sold 14.9 million copies. Halo 3 sold 8 million copies, beating Halo 2. Gears sold what, 5-6 million? EVERY Gran Turismo game so far has sold more than 10 million copies each. Tell me what other exclusive console franchise can compete with that? Of course, you can only think of Wii Fit, Wii Play, etc. So once again, what's the point of bringing up sales when you're only gonna get Gran Turismo shoved down your face with supplements of Wii Fit, Wii Play, etc? And since we're talking about sales, why don't I mention that PS3 has been selling at a faster rate WHILE at a higher price than the 360? Here's a link comparing the consoles from launch. http://vgchartz.com/hwlaunc... Again, bringing up sales is bad if you're trying to prove the PS3 is in a bad situation.
a lot but GT3 was a pack-in game. as a whole it does sell very well
all gow come out in march
Yah know, it's not like that's a RULE. They could come out with the game whenever they see fit. Personally, I don't care just as long as they take all the time they need to polish it until we're all blind just by looking at it.
Yeah, it doesn't matter to me when it comes out. Day 1 purchase for me... Of course, I would like it sooner rather than later. :D
Not it's not... We've seen it. We've played it and it's in need of some work. Lucky if it's out by March 2010. I'm saying Summer, maybe even fall. They might announce March 2010 at E-3, but it'll slip the date... Just like Heavy Rain did and will do again. That's another train wreck in the making, by the way.
You know, if I was Sony or ANY game maker, I wouldnt allow people to view my games that have been known to be a total jerk about it when relaying info to the fans. You played an early alpha(maybe) build and you have determined that GOW3 will slip until fall 2010? Get over yourself!! When you are capable of making a game to your obviously high standards then you can stand on your soapbox and yell to the masses how Santa Monica Studios have train wrecks in the making. Before you even go on about how you never said GOW was a train wreck, you should go back and read your comment. You spoke of GOW3 and then Heavy Rain - stating HR was ANOTHER train wreck in the making. For a journalist(and I am using that term very liberally, siligon) you should have a little more sense about wording. I don’t mind you popping out of the hole that the gamers on N4G drove you into over 6 months ago to tell us some info about what you know... but when that info includes your always cynical opinion of things to come... you can keep it to yourself.
btw. I'm still looking for that forest level in Killzone 2. Can you help me, Silo...err... Gamezblow?
I think he meant resistance 2. lol. I would love to see this guy reply. He never does.
LOL You're so right. There is no forest level. Lies GAMESBLOW LIES.
gamesblow is just a little kid looking for attention guys. Nothing to see here.
Forest on Helgan???. Who would believe that?. Also GamesBlow you said Kojima new game has nothing to do with MGS. You were wrong there as well.
wow. Gamesblow just got jacked up. Keep trying gamesblow, you'll get that whole trolling thing eventualy.
...by gamesblow, the number 1 gaming insider, regarding Kojima's new game. I think he said it had nothing to do with MGS but yet, the internet has been exploding with news of this "OLD MAN" in the uh...Metal Gear Solid Universe. Care to comment homie?
GOW3 train wreck? Hrain train wreck? WTF? Every single site that had hands on preview was impressed by Heavy Rain, some even putting it on their "Most looking forward to E3 game". I don't get Gamesblow, sometimes he is on side of Sony, sometimes he trashes anything Sony releated...odd. I remember when he said that Infamous was going to flop...
Let's be clear... 1 - I am not Silogon and have nothing to do with him or his site. 2 - I am not a developer. I am an employee of SCE. 3 - I know full well what Kojima's next 2 games are. I can't speak of the names or what they entail for obvious reasons. My site is set to launch and I'm not stupid enough to jeopardize that. Again, though... I stand by the fact it isn't "MGS" related. And it's not. Go back and check my post. "MGS" related. Catch the claus. 4 - I have seen GOW3 in action and played it for myself. Make your claims of Alpha all you want. I am an internal Sony employee and my take is -- > GOWIII needs some work and won't make an early 2010 release. I'm sorry. 5 - I have not personally seen Heavy Rain, but an associate here has and she said "Thumbs Down" ... She said it's a train wreck at this stage. I believe her. 6 - Killzone 2 most defiantly does has a forest area, as I had outlined early on and it will be making an E-3 debut. Oh, you mean it wasn't included in the game? Gotcha. 7 - Never said Infamous was going to flop... You must be talking about one of the many Gamesblow clones out there. Do I find Infamous to be a rewarding experience? Meh... it needs work. It's not Sucker Punches best offering. Bad by no means. 8 -- My information has always been dead on. From back then to right now and beyond. Deal with it. Learn to live with the truth. Not everything is roses.
For all the bashing you do, you must either hate your job or hate sony.
I loved Indigo Prophecy so i know i will love Heavy Rain. Is HR for everyone? Sure not, but i like what i see and it is my most anticipated game from Sony. I guess it comes down to what you like....
I'm interested to see how this all pans out.
LOL! Spitting out BS.
I want to beleive that you are credible, but you state these so called facts in a way that piss us off. how can we believe you? at least show us a pic of some game thats supposed to be unveiled at E3. Edit: everyone here talking on this page, be sure to save this page and the other pages where gamesblow talks since he leaks stuff like this. in fact lets make a list of things that hes stating will appear at E3: -Capcom's surprise will be Final Fight -Sony Will Unveil "project S"(Aka Silhouette)At E3, not to mention he stated that 3 other never before seen games will be unveiled at E3 -Kojima Will Unveil 2 games, these games are not related to MGS in anyway(aka its Metal Gear Related, but probably not going to be named MGS, but Metal Gear XXXXXXX, or that the games will take place somewhere not in the MGS universe.) which is most likely PS3 exclusive -GG will unveil a new map that suppose to be a forest KZ2 at E3. -GOWIII and Heavy Rain will be pushed back to 2010, most likely fall 2010. Guys keep adding to the notorious facts that gamesblow stated, we are going to find out soon enough whether hes the real deal or not. so far he was right on TWO things which he stated last year which was that Tekken 6 was going multi-platform and that MOTORSTORM 2 was going to be unveiled and that its release date was fall 2008, but thats not enough to know weather or not hes a credible source, since it was expected.
Just to be clear u said Kojima's next game is a ps3 exclusive that has ninjas. I really hope what you said is true.
This guy is a joke. He said he played it and its a train wreck along with heavy rain. I can predict the next few articles from him now. Oh well, its all fun and games but people like gamesblow suck.
Not just a developer, a top notch developer who can criticize all games in alpha build.
but i'm thinking march. (like the other 2 GOW games)
Hope it releases this year, i have faith in Sony in being able to make there exclusives Faster nowadays, All there topdawg developers contributing theyre 2cents into God of War 3, Although Guerilla Games made Killzone 2, if you look at the credits you will see Santa Monica, Insomniac and some others. or maybe i was dreaming but i'm pretty sure they are on there. Now With Guerilla done with Killzone2 how awsome would it be if they put there 2 cents in God of War 2, giving it that gritty mature atmosphere, along with Insomniac efficicient developing process that give them the ability to pump out games in a year.
Check the credits on all Sony 1 and 2 party games. They all give thanx to each other. Watch the end of uncharted they give thanx to everyone insomniac. SP. GG. sana monica. And about 5 more. Must be nice
Why do u want Sony to release God of War 3 this year? U do realize that if they release EVERYTHING in 09' that they'll be in the same position next year that Microsoft is in now which is a lack of AAA exclusives.
hope sony announce a predicted release date at E3
Another PS3 2010 release date...just like Heavy Rain. Well thats 2 AAA exclusive titles that sony's blinded fanboys can take off their AAA games to be released in 09. But it didn't take a scholar to know that GOW III was going to get an 2010 release, but the blinded sony fanboys sure didn't see it.. The Sony AAA exclusive 09 list just keeps shrinking and shrinking...so much for Sony's list destroying Ms's...and E3 is just around the corner for MS to say what titles will be out in 09....i see a lot of Sony Loyalist bubbling themselves up just to prepare for the crying/spinning/complaining out of jealousy that MS is going to announcing.
lol what? you're crazy man of the year. don't be so hateful, it is bad for your health. =)
You do realize that you come off as a microsoft blinded fanboy with all that crap, dont you?
Dude you're a fvcking idiot to think that something that get announced at E3 midway through tht year will release by years end. So what if you don't get a game this year then 2010 won't come? Let me ask you what games are you getting for 2010? Jack shiat is what.. Or maybe viva pinata 2, lips 3, or maybe you're in the movies.. again! LOL and don't forget GTA4's 18th DLC suzy the lesbian killer chick. How about Fallout DLC #27? Trying to bash God of War. Pathetic. Man of the Year=Troll of year.
I really thk the only way Sony can be outdone at E3 is if Microsoft announces the 720 with ur body as the controller.
You really are stupid arent you? With killzone 2 and infamous already released and what the hell did microsoft bring so far? nothing and we are 6 months into the year. I can almost guarentee that sony's E3 game list will be bigger than microsofts E3 game list. Uncharted 2, ratchet and clank, and MAG are all confirmed for this year and beleive me their will be more announced for this year at E3!. Any which way you look at it sony has 5 must have exclusives confirmed this year!
LOL MS didn't bring anything? LOL ok. My point still stands. Many of you Droids, and many that have responded to my post, said Sony's has a bigger list of exclusives than MS does, and when they listed that list, GOW3 and Heavy rain was in the list. I asked for proof that these 2 games were going to be released and NONE could do it...instead like ignorant sony fanboy droids, they attack with personal jabs rather just say "you are right, there is no confirmation that those games are coming out in 09" and here we are now with 2 major titles that DROIDS thought were to be released in 09 are now coming out in 2010. @talltony....you need to check to see what exclusive games have come out for 360 before you say nothing has come out...here is a start. Halo Wars Star Ocean 4 to match your Killzone and Infamous that you just named.
lol Halo wars and star ocean vs. infamous and killzone 2? give me a break! Maybe I should rephrase myself. Microsoft brought no good exclusives this year so far and you know it. My xbox has pretty much been off the whole year except when i want to go back to play some left 4 dead.
Well great games are subjective are they not? i guess Sony fanboys like yourself decide when reveiws matter and when they don't huh? i see it as halo wars outsold KZ2, thus there was more of a demand for the product, which to me would seem more people wanted that product over KZ2. To me people will buy what they feel is worth their hard earned money. If more people bought Halo wars over Kz2, that tells me more people like the idea of this RTS game over another FPS game that is a flooded genre of games. Also Someone who is a fan of SO and JRPGs may find it more for them then a FPS or sandbox game. You seem to always like to say that the games that you like are the best games to play yet not saying that its your opinion. And who are you to tell me that SO and halo wars are not as good as KZ2 and Infamous? My tastes and others my see differently than yours.
douche of the century
I dont have to say in my opinion every damn post I make! If I say anything it is my opinion. Like what you like and I'll like what I like but if you disagree me, then say you disagree with me and quit calling me a fanboy for not liking the same games/things as you. Everything I say on here is my opinion even if I make it sound like a fact!
Can you imagine, gamesblow being allowed to play heavy rain and god of war 3 & this guy sticking his nose in the air with his finger pointed as if he was some kind of chosen judge of all game creations? As he searches his thesaurus for negative words to express his misery. Then to make articles on he was a victim to the tortureous agony of playing a video game? His endless suffering is like being a sacrificial lamb to help persuade others to not sin. Gamesblow, is the prophet of all prophets. his message is of fear and he is a jealous prophet. Thou shall not Play playstation 3. For his vegeance is mighty and he will hate those that oppose his views. Youre a clown man.
This Jan 13th date is just a Blockbuster's retailer date, and everyone should know by now that retailer release dates aren't exactly very reliable, especially when GOW3's official release date hasn't been announced yet. If this was true, and Sony could release GOW3 on Jan 13th, 2010 I don't see any reason why they couldn't release it sometime in late December because in a lot of instances a game is finished about a month before it releases, and Sony would probably push as hard as they could for the game to be released Late 2009 in time for the Holiday season than to wait early-mid Jan 2010 release if this was the case. For a big game like God of War 3, I don't think a January release date is the right timing, and I can't recall that many big games coming out in the first month of the year..... it's either December this year or March 2010 in my book. The Official release date will most likely be announced at E3, so not much more longer to wait.
Wouldnt be suprised if they release it in january. $ony just dont know how to market their games and release them during key holiday periods.
Why the fvck do you trolls care anyway. It's not like you guys can play the game in your 360s. You guys are really hurting for games that you troll EVERY ps3 news. Sigh like roaches (trolls)... you just can't get rid of them.
Okay, even if God of War 3 comes out 2morrow morning, would it really matter?? MW2 is gunna be the best-selling, most popular game of the year regardless. I honestly wouldn't mind if it came out next summer. I'll be too busy playing Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2. Personally I thk neither side should talk trash. 360 fanboys can't talk trash because PS3 has more AAA exclusives and PS3 fanboys can't talk trash because as many AAA exclusives as they have, none of them are gunna sell more than Halo 3 or Gears 2 FACT. AND NO, I'm not a troll. Just PS3 owner who isn't afraid of pointing out the strengths AND weaknesses of my preferred console. NYCREDUDE: U seem very sure that MOOKS and MAN OF THE YEAR don't have PS3's. Guys I thk we have a stalker on our hands! lol
Blatantly should be released in a bundle on december 1st.
