195w ago - Today PR and Marketing Manager Andrej Dula of the Czech Republic and Slovakia has shared some pictures of Kratos on the road over European highways.
To quote: If, in the coming weeks, you see drivers with wide open eyes on the European highways, there are two likely explanations:
Either Europe was hit with (another!) severe snowstorm and spring is nowhere in sight, or they have just seen Kratos, the one and only God of War cruising on the road using his massive truck!
PlayStation Czech Republic and Slovakia is paying a tribute to this great franchise which is breaking review scores highs and sales records with an epic God of War III truck. Branded from both sides, it projects a 3D image of Kratos literally jumping out of the truck and into the traffic.
It would be a shame to keep it only to Czech Republic and Slovakia so through a cooperation with a Slovak truck company, the truck will be hitting the roads of mainland Europe until the end of summer, visiting also Austria, Netherlands, Croatia, Ukraine, Poland and Hungary so keep your eyes open for the one and only God of War!

248w ago - Imagine Kratos, the angry, irate ghost of Sparta sitting toe and toe with Mario. What he lacks in cuteness he makes up for with broken limbs. Industry rumblings say many possible millions of God of War fans have not purchased a PlayStation 3, yet.
This would put Kratos in the role of a true system seller, he has been welcomed into over 7 million homes world wide. Sony's official God of War III press event really help put the buzz back on the right path as many fans were disappointed at the VGA awards teaser.
Nick Williams, an industry analyst, postulates that over 33% of God of War III potential buyer's do not own the PS3 console. Speaking to Gamasutra the marketplace guru said this:
The price point for the PS3 remains a real problem for Sony. Sony execs now find themselves in the precarious position of trying to balance consumer price expectations with the high costs of producing each PS3.
That said, the PS2's continued success more than eight years after launch suggests that Sony is thinking long term with the PS3. If Sony can continue to bring down hardware manufacturing costs, it seems likely that it will offer a price cut by the end of Summer 2009.
