God Of War III Will Get More Polish

It stole our breaths away when it brought Sony's E3 press conference to a close, but did you know the team still has some polishing to do before God of War III's March 2010 release?

Now, according to HipHopGamerShow, the capable guys over at SCEA Santa Monica are working towards the ultimate: 1080p at 60 frames per second. At E3, "representatives of the game said that the graphics weren't done," and that they still had a ways to go before the final coat of polish was applied. Then they were asked if the final product would possibly rival the CG teaser trailer we saw at last year's E3. Their response was as follows:

"It will come close to it and you will not be disappointed, the game is still a ways off but we’re confident that gamers will love the final product come march 2010 so stay tuned for the coming months."

Now, we did see a long gameplay demonstration (if you missed it, check our PS3 Videos section; it's there in two parts), and you will agree that it isn't quite comparable with the CG videos we've seen thus far. But let's not forget that we're a good 8-9 months from the final release, and a whole lot can be done in that span of time... We have no doubt that God of War III will drop our jaws, but just how far will those jaws go...?  Perhaps it's important to remember that with each passing year, we've seen new graphical accomplishments; GoWIII could very well represent the next big leap in the visual department.  Then again, it'll be tough to top what we'll see in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves later this year, but even so, we have full confidence in SCEA.

Who can complain about adding more polish to an already amazing looking game.Will GOWIII beat out Uncharted2 graphically? probably not but I am sure that's not SCEA intend and it shouldn't be either since they will basically be unrelated brothers.Running at 1080p an 60 frames would really be the icing thought.

That is a good question, Hexen. When I saw in the distance on uncharted 2 I couldnt believe that it looked so real instead of looking like a flat background. But whether or not GOW3 beats out Uncharted 2 or vice versa They are both a definate buy for me, Graphics make for a great game experience but are just not as important to me as gameplay and story line. you could throw a game together on the PS3 and have PS1 graphics and I wouldn't care as long as the gmaeplay was good and the story line solid.

I never owned any of the GoW games previously. They came at a time when I was heavy into FFXI and didn't really buy any other games. But, I did play the first one a couple times through (borrowed from a friend) and really enjoyed it. Since I didn't get a chance to see any of the second one, I think GoWIII will feel even more fresh to me than the hardcore GoW fans out there. So I can't wait.

Did anyone else see on g4 they said some site (I forget sorry) said that ODST had most buzz? How could that EVER beat this?! I think even the guys at bungie are going to take a sick day when this game hits.

The gameplay and boss-fights of GOWIII will raise the bar of gaming out of the stratosphere... Any graphical advancement would just be a nice added bonus.. March '10 can't come any sooner..

Halo is incredibly boring to me. It has not done anything new since the first Halo!!! Why people think ODST will be the best thing ever is beyond me. Its the most basic shooter with the most basic graphics I have ever seen in a next-gen console. The only thing it has is an excellent online multiplayer and a relatively decent story. I guess we just found our answer to what elements of a game sell it the most.

Anyway, God of War 3 will sell consoles big time. That, Uncharted 2 and Gran Turismo 5. If they bring out console bundles with those games, sales will sky-rocket and definitely surpass the 360, no doubt there.

Come on Sony. Give these games the marketing they deserve!! Show the people what they will be missing out on and what 360 users are missing out on!! Make them want the PS3!!!
(An excellent way to do this is simply compare console fail ratios in an advertisement since the lauch of both PS3 and 360. Easy win right there!)

My wife, who is a sometime gamer (I hate "casual"), was watching the demo with me on G4's E3 coverage and was amazed.

She turned to me and asked, "Do you have this?"

I chuckled and explained it wouldn't come out until March 2010.

I added that I had parts 1 & 2.

Apparently, she liked the freedom to take out the enemies in any number of creative ways. I think it was a scene where Kratos rips of something's arm and uses it to kill the enemy. I can't recall.

Anyway, she was as excited as I've ever seen her over a non-fighting, racing, or puzzle game.

I think I have to dig out GOWI and II, as well as Ico and SotC because I think she'll like those too.

Okay, i know i will get a lot of for this but to me GoW3 didn't look as good as it could. It looked like an upscaled ps2 game. Uncharted 2 looks like full 1080p 60fps. Don't get me wrong, i love GoW but it looks to cartoony

Cant wait 4 this, however in terms of sales, 2 things holding Sony back are; 1, need a price cut 2, they have the worst marketing out of the big 3, its just embarrassing. Just think of the sales if they had M$ marketing team cos they soooooooooo have the games

i thought GOW3 was published by SCEE.
o god please not SCEA they allways delay there exclusives here in oz.
resistance 2 for example we got that game 27 days later than the US.
it takes 27 days to shipp coppies of the game from the us to au does it?
and we better get the collectors edition.
for some reason sony published games have NEVER released a LE here.
i would of loved the LE of r2 or KZ2 but according to sony i havent paid them enough yet.
im sick of being treated like a seccond class citizen because of where i live

i hope it does reach 1080P and 60 FPS.
because in a interview with IGN i think it was.
stig amussen said there not shure if there going to be able to reach 60FPS, because of the ammount of enemies on screen.
hope they do though, if it doesnt run at 1080P and 60FPS im going to be dissapointed.
but ripping off helios head will make up for that :D
