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?
