GoWIII Launch Date Confirmed, Ultimate Edition Revealed

You know, we've only been saying God of War III releases on March 16 because that's the date GameStop has in it computer. That's hardly official, as everyone knows, so it's good to have the final announcement.

As revealed at the PlayStation Blog, SCEA's new masterpiece will indeed land on store shelves on the 16th of March, and along with this confirmation, we get a look at the final box art and the revealing of the special Ultimate Edition (pictured here). The update doesn't go into specifics for this bad-ass edition but we will get "premium collectibles and digital content," and that's good enough for now. To add more fuel to the hype train - as if it needs any - February 11 is another day to mark on your calendars; that's when Sony will debut a brand new trailer exclusively on Spike's GameTrailers TV. Last but certainly not least, if you haven't picked up the God of War Collection just yet (featuring the first two GoW titles in stunning high definition), now's the time...because the price is down to $29.99! The mania has only just begun and you can bet that as we close in on that release date, you won't be able to avoid the name "God of War." ...what, you're gonna complain?

We can't wait to get our hands on this one; it's the third big PS3 exclusive of 2010 behind MAG and Heavy Rain. Well, chronologically speaking. Stay tuned for the MAG review; it'll be up in about 20 minutes or so.

Doesn't the ultimate edition have a replica of pandora's box? Is pandora's box inside that regular box?

That's what I was thinking. Pandora's box has to be in there.

Nevermind my first reply. I can't find one that says Collector's Edition.

Amazon shows the same picture above and still has pandora's box listed in the contents.

I'm so happy with this because that day is my birthday, and i have been a fan of the series since it started. I really would like it if GOW3 gets GOTY. So i actually read a lot here but i post very few times, the people in here are so funny and everything especially Ben.

I live in Illinois as well. I understood the 83 most likely referred to the year you were born. My itty bitty song was simply directed to you due to my allegiance with OSU football.

Oh and I'm not allergic to Kleenex, I was simply kidding around. As far as I know I'm not allergic to anything. I mean come on, kleenex?!

FWIW, Pandora didn't have a Box, she had a Jar/Urn. I don't know how the idea of it being "Pandora's Box" came into being.

I know...random thought...but I live to educate.

Quick return it to were ever you got it from and then buy it when you find it at the new price. As long as you haven't opened it, then you may have to try walmart because they take evryrthing back (I would know I worked there for almost six years) and hope they haven't dropped the price yet. Good luck! :)

Ussually you have like a week at most retailers to return it or get a refund of the difference if they drop the price with in a time period of your purchase. Try and check that out you may still be in luck!
