GameStop Offering New GoWIII Demo

As soon as we saw God of War III in action at E3, we knew we just had to get our hands on that bad boy...and as fast as humanly possible.

Well, there are now multiple ways to score a playable demo of the most anticipated straight-up action title of the generation. Most of you already know that the very same E3 demo will be included in the God of War Collection, which features high-def remakes of the first two GoW titles and will be available on November 17. But maybe you can't wait. If that's the case, make a quick trip down to GameStop; it was announced yesterday that the retailer would have special demos that come complete with an exclusive Phantom of Chaos Skin. And you know, if you want all the possible GoWIII action in November, you'll have to snag this along with the Collection, as the two demos in question are actually different. Remember, you have to wait until March to get the full version so if you're not proactive this month, you'll be in for a long, bleak winter with no brutal slashing fun. And that just sounds totally depressing.

By now, you've gotten your fill of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and are looking for your next big action fix. Usually, demos don't qualify as a "fix," but in this case, two demos might just suffice...

It's not a disc, and man the demo was Awesome. Played it a few times over. it's about 2.7GB's, but it's totally worth it.

Ok so if the two demos are not both the E3 Demo (which I have been playing relentlessly since Friday) then what do you get to play in the demo for the collection?

sigh.
another thing exclusive to the US.
im on my wits end with sony, and this exclusive to US BS.
than today i went to EB to see if i could snag R&C early, sadly i was told i have to wait till november 5th, because its street dated EVEN THOUGH DRAGON AGE ORIGINS IS STREET DATED FOR NOVEMBER 19TH AND SHE OFFERED ME A COPY!
so let me get this straight.
i can buy a copy of a game i dont want 17 days before street release, but if i want said game i have to wait till release!
ooooooooooooooooooooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
in that case, i dont want a copy of R&C so give it to me now!
than i come home check to make sure dragon age origins on ps3 is street dated, and surprise it is.
and the final nail in the coffin.
R&C has now been delayed till november 12th.
its already out in the US for fu**s sake!!!!!!!
they wait 3 days till release than set it back, even though its been out in the US for over a week!!!!!!!!!
O and to top it off, EB ALREADY HAS R&C IN THE BACK, WAITING TO BE SOLD!
WHY THE ^%$#%^^%$#$#$$%^^%$$##@@#$%$ WOULD YOU DELAY A GAME 7 DAYS IF ITS ALREADY IN STORES.
jesus christ, sony really wants to loose me as a customer, hell there bloody close.
there attitude has already talked me out of a PSP, so keep pushing sony, lets see whats next.
its official, sony are the new M$

That's funny I was about to say Gamestop was the new microsoft. You know they bought this demo with all that used game money.

I think you need to change your life... who cares whether a game is delayed a few days or not; why should it make you so upset?

Life is short; enjoy the out doors, go for a walk, smoke weed, don't let Sony get to you... I know its frustrating, but surely there are plenty of other things you can do whilst you are waiting for the release of the game...

well i would do that, but, well, i dont think i would be living to much longer.
my parents would kill me, my mother especially its extremly freaky.
one night when i was like 15 she was out, i had 1 sip of wine a few hours later she came back, smelt my breath and ripped my friggin head off.
if she could notice that, well yea its not worth the risk.

You could always use a diffuser of sorts :) Go green, use a "carbon harmonizer".

Well JB still has it listed on 5th November. Why the hell would you still purchase games from EB? Their games are nearly 20 dollars more expensive than JB

because if i dont like a game take it back within 7 days for a full refund.
JBHIFI does not do that.
also, EB release games sometimes early, like borderlands, opperation flashpoint, brutal legend,ninja gaiden sigma 2 all came out 2 days before release date.
where JBHIFI normally dont release them till there original date.

the brutal slashing fun for this winter will come from Demon's Souls, Darksiders and Bayonetta, and ofcourse the GOW BluRay collection

I am sorry, this is one game that I just cannot buy because of it's pure awesomeness. After watching the demo, the HD graphics are too brutal and bloody for me to accept. I can play the PSP GOW because the images are small and blurry, but the PS3 version has too much details. I will still support the game morally, hope the sales will do great.

yea, i think its the other way around.
i think the gamestop demo is the E3 demo, and the collection demo is different.
i hope at least.

I think NGS2 will hold me over until then, you know, with the Mentor and Master Ninja Difficuly settings. I rather save the surprise of playing the game for the first time, which is why I'll avoid the demos. But please, someone start a GOW demo(s) impressions section in the forums, if it hasn't been done already.
