193w ago - Alongside GOW3 patch update version 1.01, today a new God of War III PS3 glitch discovered allows you to start a game under any difficulty with all the weapons fully maxed out.
While the patch from SCE Santa Monica Studio doesn't fix the glitch yet, it reportedly weighs in at 5377 KB and fixes wireless controller issues many users had.
To activate the PlayStation 3 glitch, simply perform the following, to quote:
1. Unlock Combat Arena by beating the story once and then clearing the Challenges of Olympus mode.
2. In the Combat Arena option screen, set Kratos' Health to "Level 1" and difficulty to "Titan." Set up the Enemies option with creatures that can kill you quickly and start the battle.
3. In the Combat Arena, die five times in a row and the game will prompt you to switch to Easy mode. Select "No" to exit to the main menu.
4. You should hear two different music tracks playing over each other. Furthermore, the Maxed Out! trophy will be unlocked if you didn't already have it. From the main menu, select "New Game" and the difficulty of your choice to activate the glitch.
194w ago - With the new Spartans Stand Tall site showing a storm brewing and God of War - Fate of the Titan unlockable video on the GOW Collection PS3 disc, speculation has begun on what the next title in the series will be.
Sony Santa Monica has stated that while God of War III is the last in the current story arc, it will not be the last game in the series... hinting that the next game will feature a new hero.
What many might not know is that featured on the God of War Collection PS3 disc is a "Fate of the Titan" video that can be unlocked after beating the game on Spartan Mode.
For those who don't mind spoilers, to quote: The video shows present day footage as the narrator (Gai) explains that "All myths need not be from ancient times" as a band of explorers are shown finding and opening Pandora's Temple.
The video ends with Gai saying, "Soon as with all great myths, a new hero will emerge."
It is worth noting that the video says Chronos the Titan lives another thousand years after the first God of War, but Chronos is actually killed in God of War III by Kratos.
Additionally, the skull of Chronos has a hole in it, in the exact same location that Kratos stabs and kills Chronos with the Blade of...
194w ago - Update: Examiner.com also uncovered a God Of War 3 PS3 Trophy glitch in which you can obtain a trophy without meeting the requirements.
To quote: "The "Maxed Out!" silver trophy can normally be acquired by upgrading all the weapons in the story mode to the maximum with red orbs.
To do so, players must string together high combos and painstakingly search for hidden treasure chests throughout the adventure. This can be tough when playing at a higher difficulty levels."
A God Of War 3 PS3 glitch has recently surfaced which allows users to skip the boss Hermes if they find battling him is too difficult, as demonstrated in the video below courtesy of findlestick via YouTube.
To quote: Kratos outruns Hermes! Skip the Grapple wall at Hermes.
This skip was a no brainer really, grapple walls in the past have lent themselves for this type of abuse. I'm not really glitching this game yet, will enjoy a few normal runs through it on all difficulties first. But decided to put this speedrun strat up, saves maybe 20-25 seconds (guessing tho).
