God of War: Ghost of Sparta Gets a Release Date
The date that GoW: GoS will insert itself into your PSP is November 2. OK, so that’s out of the way, and now I’ll tell you about this weird pre-order shizz they’ve got going, per the Playstation blog. If you order the game early from Amazon, Best Buy or Gamestop, you get all this:
-Ghost of Sparta Original Soundtrack – Be part of the legacy, and relive the emotional soundscape of defiance and rage through the original soundtrack.
-PSP Theme – Are you the ultimate God of War fan? Prove it with the God of War: Ghost of Sparta theme.
-PS3 Dynamic Theme – Fully animated in constant motion, personalize your PS3 system with the official God of War Dynamic Theme.
-PlayStation Network Avatar – Be one of the few to own the exclusive Kratos Avatar only available through this pre-order.
-Legionnaire Skin – Discover the origins of the Spartan warrior as you experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta as Legionnaire Kratos.
-EXCLUSIVE Game Directors Documentary – A full length featured video roundtable with all of the past and present Game Directors for the God of War franchise in front of a live studio audience, including: David Jaffe, Cory Barlog, Stig Asmussen, Ru Weerasuiya and Dana Jan.
OK, so maybe I hyped this up a bit too much, but that’s still purty good for not costing extra. Also, the score is usually one of the high points of God of War games, so I’d say getting the soundtrack free would be pretty awesome. (I say that as somebody who owns, on CD, the God of War III soundtrack.)
Oh, and lastly there’ll be a PSP bundle for Ghost of Sparta, as you would expect, and it’ll come with a red and black PSP, the game, a 2gb memory stick and a voucher to download the movie Kick-Ass. It’s too bad that movie is awful.
I’m having a hard time figuring out how to end this post.
