And something like can only mean there is something BIG coming our way…soon."

Doesn't matter if it's on the PSP or the Triple, great news nonetheless.

GOW for PSP was awesome but fuk PSP, i want games on PS3.
anyways Ready at Dawn is back? Believe!

cyborg2806d ago

@too pawned - yea, a new ps3 game would be amazing but the way sony is pushing the PSP and how the last time Santa Monica pulled off this kind of a stunt, it resulted in Chains of Olympus, forces us to speculate a new PSP title. Anyways, let's hope its for the PS3.

raztad2806d ago

No more GoW for the PS3, at least not with Kratos.

Kratos on the PSP would make a lot of sense though. I do want more games for my PSP.

-Alpha2806d ago

They are done with Kratos and people have to let it go. You never want a character to be milked.

I would love to see Santa Monica tackle Norse mythology, or whatever else they can because mythology is one of the defining features of God of War and they represent the world amazingly.

qface642806d ago

i can bet anything if it is another god of war its gonna just end up being another prequel for the psp
your kidding yourself if you think its another ps3 game so soon

The site doesn't seem will informed, the inverted V he was referring to as an arabic number 8 is false, the inverted V is from indian numbers, the arabic numbers are the ones we are all used to write 0,1,2,3,.....
But anyway, I was expecting the same thing since GOW2 ! GOW must never end !
In the end, there will be only CHAOS !

Edit: Someone here: http://forums.gametrailers.... did a little fiddling around with this website and got this:
- it's a countdown (duh)
- it got 7 'stages', currently the progress bar is at '2'
- there are no hint's in the code for whatever this could be, other than a countdown to something
- there are no hidden links to any other pages, but the video in the loop is named 'g3_stream_video2.flv' and since we are at '2' there will be probably a new video showing more every day/week/month?
- it's possible to fill the bar by editing the xml, but it doesn't do anything because the code just isn't there ;)

Personnaly, I think it is teaser site to give us a secret code to unlock the FULL HD 1080p native mode for GOW3, like they did at the time of GOW2 by showing site like that and after the countdown the site showed a secret code to unlock the HD version, on the PS2, yes yes!
If it is true, then, some X-fanboys will commit suicide !

Edit: @ too pawned below, I know that "V" is 5 in Roman, but if you payed more atterntion I said the INVERTED V he was referring to and shown on the shield which is 8 in Indian !

Edit: @ dir-en-grey and to EVERYONE !
Did you even read the article and my full comment?
The article: " . For one, the insignia resembles the Arabic numeral character for the number 8."

My comment : "The site doesn't seem will informed, the inverted V he was referring to as an arabic number 8 is false, the inverted V is from indian numbers, the arabic numbers are the ones we are all used to write 0,1,2,3,..... "

TOO PAWNED2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

Plastic man

Lol don't try to sound smart when you don't know what you are talking about. Lol "V" is "5" in Roman (not Indian) numerals lol

The more you know "Plastic" man

Dir_en_grey2806d ago

Λ is called Lambda.
This is Greek mythology why the hell would you even think of it referring to Indian numbers? *sigh

cyborg2806d ago

@Plastica man:

The Arabic numbers used in Middle East have a V as 7 and an inverted V as 8. This coming from a person who speaks arabic.

Also I stay in india...and in Indian...8 is definitely not an inverted V.

Alcon2805d ago

Name of the site is spartansstandtall (first hint)
the inverted v is Lambda in greek (our equivalent for the letter L)(2d hint)
and Sparta or Lacedaemon (hence the lambda), was a prominent city-state in ancient Greece.(just wiki Sparta or Lacedaemon)
So my guess this game will be centered more around Sparta (and spartans).
Maybe play the rise of Kratos as the commander of his army?

webeblazing2805d ago

if its for psp made by the dev gow coo yea
if its for ps3 please dont make a new game let it end already

randomwiz2805d ago (Edited 2805d ago )

First, I'm going to attack you, then defend you.

No, the article is correct. An inverted "V" is the arabic numeral 8, but the article talks about eastern arabic numbers, western arabic numbers are the ones you see commonly used now.

You're basically saying a symbol in one type of language can't be used in another? So everyone knows "a" is a in english, so it can't be a in French?
And if you read his comment, he talks about an inverted V.

@1.9 "This is Greek mythology why the hell would you even think of it referring to Indian numbers? *sigh "
Even though your explanation makes more sense, the site said it was an arabic number, and he thought that to be wrong, and tried to clear that misconception and offering an alternate explanation. Unfortunately, he was only half correct.

DaTruth2805d ago (Edited 2805d ago )

Started some playthroughs of GoW1 and 2(PS2 versions) in anticipation of GOW3(a little too late) and found myself wondering why the hell I haven't played those games in nearly 3 years! They're both really good games!

@Above: Fishy has the answer down below! It is Greek!

"Λ, is known as Lambda in the Greek alphabet.

Little fact: Used as a shield pattern by the Spartan army; it stood for Lakedaimon, the name of the region."

Morituri2805d ago

If you really want exotic locales and crazy characters, the best theology base would be Hindu. Their epic poem the Ramayana and Mahabharata are epic poems all about a crazy war with deities. Imagine someone fighting Vishnu etc...

rockleex2805d ago (Edited 2805d ago )

The video game, confirmed!!!

@[email protected]

First, the phalanx ability being introduced in GOW3. Now the Spartan shield symbol.

THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAA!!!! *kicks Aaron Greenburg off the cliff*

-Alpha2805d ago

Basing the next game on Hindu mythology would be absolutely mind blowing. It's so original, completely foreign to most gamers, and it has the ability to enchant us with the mythological stories.

I would really like to see that happen.

Delive2805d ago

I'm pretty pissed at GoW3 right now. No Spoilers. The boss battles so far are great, puzzles are great, story is great, all worthy of a 10 score, then they had to make you fly up a chain and dodge things. Not too tough, but so out of character, takes you out of the game, the mood, the feel. Then, after a few more hours, they make you fly BACK down the chain, free falling. You can only hit so much til you die. Bad part is when you hit something, you can't see, increasing the odds that you will hit something else shortly after. Oh and it is an all in one run section. Die, go all the way back to the top. It's sad that the toughest part of the game (for me) is something that is so out of place, so irrelevant to "extracting your revenge on the Gods". This section alone takes away from the game.

End Gripe. Trying again.

Kain812805d ago

that a second GOW spin off is in the making, by Ready at Dawn, but for an unannounced console...i think its the PSP2.

sid4gamerfreak2805d ago

I'm already enjoying the epicness of GOW3.... Another God of War game would be too epic...

Commander TK2805d ago

Λ is not the ARABIC numeral character, it's Indian. These r Arabic numeral characters: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

I remember being really aloof the last time they put up a teaser site. It turned out to be an amazing game on the PSP...this time I cant help but have my hopes really really high.

Dont disappoint us Sony Santa Monica...Im sick of bullshit teases anyways. You are not one of those developers.

JoeReno2806d ago

Was the 1st God of War game that I played, and instantly became a diehard fan. I missed the PS2 games because they came out so late in the ps2 life cycle. So I can't relate to the aloofness you felt. Some of the must fun I have had on my PSP

DaTruth2805d ago

Some of the only fun I had on my PSP before PSOne classics came along!

cyborg2805d ago (Edited 2805d ago )

Can anyone notice the two faces that are hidden in the middle of the circle I have drawn or is it just me?

indiagamer2806d ago

this inverted v sign also cums next to a completed challenge of olympians....

remanutd552806d ago

God Of War second game on the psp

JoeReno2806d ago

I remember a story here on N4G not long ago, a Sony rep saying that PSP still had big game announcments for the year. This would certainly fit.

A bit more of a long shot could be CoO2 Launch title for PSP2 /\ /\ either way I'm happy. I love my PSP and my PS3.

Aclay2806d ago (Edited 2806d ago )

I wish there was some way to figure out that timer immediately because there's no telling how long this site has been up.

There's 3 more bars that have to be filled up, and E3 2010 is a just tad bit less than 3 months away...that's the only thing I could come up sounds possible though because with GDC over with, E3 is the next major gaming event, but there's really no telling.

Seems like the only way to have a real good idea when this timer will end is to see how long it takes the Red Bar to progress to the half way point from it's current 1/4 position.
