Basically, if you didnt know, there is a site with a count down timer, with krato's picture faded in the background. It's currently at 9 days, 1 hour and 34 minutes. What is it about? Nobody knows.
Link is to the website, credit url is IGN UK. Here is their article:
"Since its release earlier this month, God of War II has taken over the systems of countless PS2s, continuing Kratos' epic battle against the gods. Fans that tore through the adventure have been eager for any news related to the franchise. Well, yesterday, message boards around the web went wild with the discovery of a mysterious new website, islandofrhodes.org, which hosts a countdown set to expire in 19 days and Kratos' picture looming in the background. Speculation ran rampantly from the announcement of the PSP game to a promotional site for the European release and even the third title in the series. What could this page, which is clearly branded with PlayStation 2 logos and content, be, and how does it relate to the franchise?
We contacted a Sony representative to get down to the bottom of the mystery, and received a cryptic answer that should shed a little light on the site itself. While we did manage to find out that the game isn't related to the PSP title, "The website is for true God of War fans...Think of the original God of War."
Looks like we'll have to check out the website in 19 days to fully unlock the secrets behind the islandofrhodes.org. We'll have more on this site as soon as it's revealed."
