GameStop Dates God of War III PS3 Release for March 16, 2010
Today retailer GameStop has http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=1499 God of War III for PS3 to arrive for US gamers on March 16, 2010.
What makes this date different from other dates in the system is that this title is street dated for the 16th.
What this means is that GameStop will get the game in likely a week or so before the official release and they'll be required to hold them until March 16th to sell them to consumers.
To quote: "GameStop had the title slated for March in their system prior to this, but the 'Street Date' label is new and is likely the confirmed release date for the title.
Usually, GameStop doesn't street date titles until they know an official release date. Thus far, Sony has only stated that the title will release in March. It's been confirmed that God of War III will hit Japan on March 25th.
With a large amount of God of War III content set to be released in a week, it's possible we could hear a potential official release date, too."
