God Of War III Gets Worldwide Simultaneous Launch?
We know God of War III will release in March 2010 in the US, but gamers in other parts of the world have been left in the dark.
While it's certainly true that a game like this won't appeal quite as much to the Japanese audience - although we still fail to understand why - SCEA wants to bring this impending masterpiece to as many gamers as possible on the first day. Therefore, according to PS3Center, it seems they wish to give GoWIII a worldwide simultaneous release. We're not sure about Europe, but the latest issue of Famitsu confirms that SCEA's hotly anticipated title will also launch in Japan this March. It's also interesting to note that Sony will be publishing the game in Japan for the very first time; Capcom handled the publication duties for the previous installments in the franchise. Now all we need is to hear from SCEE that GoWIII will hit European regions at the same time, and the vast majority of gamers around the world will be able to pick up this bad boy on the very same day (or at least, in the same week or something). As far as we're concerned, games like GoWIII absolutely need a worldwide simultaneous launch; it's just a law. Nobody gets deprived!
We'll let you know when an exact date gets nailed down for the US and when it does, let's hope that date is the same - or very similar - in both Japan and Europe.
