SCEE Reveals God Of War III Release Date For UK

GameStop says God of War III will arrive in the US on March 16 so SCEE's official announcement isn't exactly surprising.

According to Electronic Theatre, SCEE has revealed the launch date for both God of War III and the GoWIII: Ultimate Trilogy Edition in Europe: March 19. If you're in the UK, you'll have the option of these two separate retail packages; you'll have the standard version that will go for £39.99 and the Ultimate Trilogy Edition, which is basically our God of War Collection from last year, only it also includes GoWIII, of course. You can nab this for £109.99. Mid-March is gonna be huge for everyone who has played and loved past entries in the award-winning series, and it's unlikely that Sony is concerned about competing with Final Fantasy XIII. Although it launches the week before, the two titles should target different gaming consumers and besides, the buzz for GoWIII is almost 100% positive. European gamers should be satisfied with that March 19 date just because they've been shafted in the past...we won't go into specifics, 'cuz it isn't necessary. If you live across the pond, you know all about getting huge titles well after the other two major regions.  We feel for you.

And while it may be the final installment in the trilogy, SCEA has already said that God of War simply won't disappear. You may have to wave bye-bye to Kratos, though...who knows?

I'm glad our brothers in arms across the pond will be getting GoWIII sooner rather than later. Now let the weak and petty gods tremble in fear for soon Kratos shall soon be here (and there)!

Thats alot of money for the trilogy, be much much cheaper to import the 1st 2 games, as its on ebay for around 30 quid, then pay the 40 quid for GOW3.

I have sadly given up on the ultimate trilogy edtion, since I just don't want to spend that money I don't have, which I can instead spend on importing the God of War collection+God of War III+Heavy Rain+about 11 bucks, even though I don't have the money.
If that made sense...

They do target different crowds. But many want both games, & could only afford one. I personally only care for God Of War 3 of those two (the other being FF13). I'll still probably be playing Heavy Rain though.

While this is good news, and I plan to be sat down eager to play this game on release day, let me just open this box and expose the elephant that steps out into the room.

£39.99 for a newly developed GOW game on the PS3 platform.
£70 for a HD update to two PS2 games that have already more than paid their way, oh and a box.

That is a whole lot of money, effectively $114 USD for the God Of War collection and a Box.

If I had the choice of buying the games separately, then I would have no problem with this, but being forced to pay a whole lot more cash for a remake and a box that for me, will just gather dust, feels like an insult.

I would also like to play the games in sequence, 1 then 2 then onto 3 which means I would have to hold off playing 3 which will no doubt be internet crazy! I will not be able to get away from the fact that although I own and could, I am not playing the most talked about game but playing it's predecessors. All the time knowing that their was plenty of time for the games to be released before number 3, if only some money grabbing idiothole had decided to do the decent thing and not screw one over us U.K people again.

I would suggest maybe looking into importing the US version of the GOW collection. It was $40 at release and already Amazon has it marked down to $30. Not sure if the logistics would work in your favor or not, but it's worth checking out.

Yep, looks like an import for me, I did try and find a game-shop in Vegas to get the collection as I expected to be screwed over with this edition but never found one.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i was one day off :(
close but no cigar.
anyway im shocked there not doing a world wide release for this, that would of been common seance unless gamestops date is wrong which 99.99% of the time is.
i wonder what sony will bring to the launch party this time ;)
O, and i guarantee kratos dies in this one, i just know it.
in the end there will be nothing but chaos!
