The official US box art for God of War III.
so is it european cover or american, make up ur mind
It has the ESRB rating......
well atleast eu and us got the same box art wich means i dont have to import, it looks awesome tho
I was hoping it was this: http://i47.tinypic.com/m351... But I guess not. This one is kind of lame but whatever - just a box art.
I guess I'm not the only one who thinks eye close-ups are cool.
Terrible. Why do Killzone 2, MGS4, and GOW3 North American boxarts have to be faces?
by the gods..... that's one of the coolest box arts i've evar seen!
Agree. If i had no idea what game GOW3 was, i know for sure what cover which would sell it to me. Gives a much better impression that just an eye with red paint around it. One could almost think it was the cover for Heavenly Sword 2: Goddess of War ;)
Pretty lame. The one that Blaze929 above has a link to is far better by leaps and bounds. Well, if this is it, I'm gonna print out a hi-res copy of the other one, trash this one and just replace it. Sometimes ya just gotta take matters into your own hands to get the job done right!
I like the faces. I think it's kind of a unique and interesting style. I liked it best for the Killzone 2 box, though. The Helghan faces look so cool.
I thought the one blaze has a link to was official. Oh well, this cover is sort of cool and the game will be awesome either way. It doesn't really convey what God of War is, though.
Sorry, I'm waiting for the official unveiling by the PS Blog. I'm not going to believe yet another forum post.
wtf Sony?! What happened to the other box art? You know, the one that looked epic and beyond anything else?!?? Uh, well, I would have loved the other box art, but in the end we get the same epic content so I guess it's alright.
Wow. This not only looks very bland, but it doesn't even follow the other boxarts that previous God of War titles had. They totally botched this.
I liked the other one better, but oh well, it is still going to be an awesome game.
I don't think Kratos looks angry enough.
me either, not angry enough. I'm pissed if this is the boaxart....cuz i laughed at EU when i found out this was their boxart, and the one blazed showed was supposedly ours...ah well...bad karma i guess.
I liked the other one that was floating around more though.
its pretty decent for the average person owning this game. i also would hope that they put the pic that blaze929 posted up in the Ultimate Edition of GOWIII so it would be extra special for the people who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition(Me!). i also would think the GOWCollection would fit into pandora's box as well(there is enough space for the european version and its the same size).
would be rated AO instead of M.
As long as the developers stay away from on-screen sex, they can get away with quite a bit and still get an M rating.
This is not the box art
I like the cover pic. It's simple yet effective. I can't freakin wait for this game!
I like it. Its clean and instantly recognisable. Just what the doctor ordered.
Still not done with the doctor thing? Let it go dude.
"Clean and instantly recognisable." That's what she said.
I agree with you (^_^ )
Simple and fearsome. I like it. :D
Im not playing the box art its the disc inside but i liked the other design floating around better. Edit: wrong reply
i'm realy disapointed with this cover i mean.... wtf? the eye is so obsolete. glad that i'm geting europe version.
The European boxart is the same
I hate the cover, but what really matters is the game, and it is going to be f#cking awesome.
@Blaze929 That one you have there does look better.
Seriously why do you care about box art. It's inside what counts.
GAY AS HELL BOX ART WTF
I think your confused, this is not Halo.
So he'll frolic without a word While we sing in harmony! -End Song (Puff the Magic Dragon, revised)
You have to use the word "gay", what's up with bots? you use it too often.
Really? Wow I would have never guessed!
NO! the other one was Perfect...
My fellow Sony gamers, no matter what the cover is, in the end, we'll still be able to play God of War III. Sony Gamers Lead the Way!
All I care about is what is on that Blu-Ray disc.
I kinda like it. -End statement
The Boxart could be literally a pile of Poop with the god of war III logo and I'd still buy it.
Bad, just bad. Easily one of the worst boxarts recently. This is about as appealing as left 4 dead`s cover. Oh well.
anyway... I don't get why people like this. It looks rubbish to me. There are no back-drops. just a white face 1 eye left or right? In comparison to GOW I & GOW II, it looks rubbish. Where are the buildings? GOW I panadora's temple http://upload.wikimedia.org... GOW II palace of the fates http://upload.wikimedia.org... GOW III they could have showed mount olympus in the distance? even these look better because they have backgrounds- http://www.vgboxart.com/box... http://www.vgboxart.com/box... (first one shows off Kratos' vengeance nicely)
i like the 2 covers they would seem soo much better then the one sony has ... the one sony just gave GOW3 just shows how lazy they are its almost the same as the GOW collection cover wtf just a little photoshop and done :(.. i want more drama oh well i could make my own and put my own cover so wte
Well the box art isnt running for GOTY is it?The game however will have a huge chance at success.
...you never know if gamers, reviewers, and bloggers of the world will soon whole all elements of a title accountable towards earning that GOTY Trophy, or dear a I say it ... a rating. Can you imagine the bs that will go on?
omg the worst box art ever ..
the rumored boxart is more bad4ss than this..
... I believe the development team knows the tradition of an angry looking Kratos staring at a building on boxarts.
It's the same premise - only this time, it's your building!
Now that you mentioned that, they did deviate from their standard depiction of Kratos infront of some building or tower ... I wonder why?
This isn't the official artwork. It was announced 2 days ago the real artwork and its the one Blaze had shown.
WOW that is ONE AWESOME BOX ART. I can hear the Xbot 360 fanboys crying a mile a way LOL. GAME OF THE YEAR 2010 NO QUESTION (and it's not even out yet) LOL gg Xbots lol] Enjoy your Halo and your RROD lol
the other one with kratos standing there that had been posted about a week ago was way better
I remember their were rumors of ONLY THE FACE on the cover so I guess they went with it after all, though its just the EYE a MGS4 cover would had been cool, like a very ANGRY looking Kratos like the opening Menu KRATOS in the demo.
It's terrible! I mean...first off...there's an image. No! Why would you put an actual image on the front of a box? That's stupid! Second of all...it says God of War III on it. Why ruin the front of a perfectly good case with words? ^This is how you guys sound. You're all being really really really really really really lame. You guys complain no matter WHAT boxart a game uses.
yea, i've noticed that too... they all cried foul over the heavy rain US box art... jesus christ, it's just a box... back on topic: i think it looks bad ass personally... kratos is such a deep character that, it's almost like looking into his soul... i like it...
this close up doesn't seem like a natural transition from the previous box-arts (of previous games). I really do hope they change it, but to each his own, right. But box art hardly matters when the content of the box is going to be disc full of epic journey, which I'm anxious to get my hands on :D.
The one I wanted, sweet! This game is going to be too pimp. I needs this game ASAP!
This is what the PS3 is all about! All the consoles offer great gaming, but the PS3 has argubly the BEST exclusive line up. God of War 3 should be on EVERY PS3 owner's list! In fact, I expect this game to come very close to the Modern Warfare 2 PS3 sales of 6+ million. (As it should, because this is a system seller, just MGS4...and it's nearly 5 million sold. And that's when the PS3 was still 4-5 hundred dollars!)
Wait, what? Can we have an official source, instead of a post of some random dude one a forum?
remember the other one, it was exactly like this one, except a little grayer, darker instead of bright white... i like that one, it was on pslifestyle.com at the page bottom where it has an ad for games... either way I'm getting the collectors edition so i wonder what cover that will have, if different. but i like them all, with this game, a close up is pretty cool because of the whole spartan paint... EDIT, damn that one is now white too, nevermind guys
a little darker with the eye glowing orange, THAT IS MY FAVORITE!
BAM! In the end their will only be CHAOS!
Its a cool cover but I don't think it fits very well with the other two covers. Then again I am anal about these sort of things.
