199w ago - Game Director Stig Asmussen has posted up the latest God of War III PS3 Vengeance - Chaos Will Rise trailer today on the PlayStation Blog!
To quote: Just wanted to tell everyone how excited we are at SCEA Santa Monica Studio to release this new trailer for God of War III.
Considering it has been almost a year since we have put out a new video, this is a really special time for us and we hope everyone enjoys it!
Just to give a little perspective on what we were going for with this trailer, we really wanted to sell the high action of the game and put together snippets of several of the big moments.
Everything is pulled straight from the game - there is no trickery, etc. Everything is running in "real time." There are no "cinematic" sequences here, meaning this is all gameplay.
Towards the end of the trailer we reveal some of the moments from our January media event. If you look closely you can see Kratos on the arm of Gaia fighting against the "Leviathan" water creature, giving a sneak peek of the scale in our game.
I am very proud of the work our team has done and how this trailer showcases it. The final game has a ton more that is not shown here...
200w ago - Today SCEE's Senior European Product Manager Thach Quach has unveiled the God of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition PS3 Box alongside some additional details on its contents.
To quote: Following my recent blog post, I'm really excited to share the design of the SCEE God of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition box with you guys. I hope you like it, let me know your thoughts!
The Ultimate Trilogy Edition can be pre-ordered in selected retailers across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. It's a limited run so make sure you pre-order it before it's sold out!

Once open, you will find the following items:
• God of War III (of course!)

• Extra game content downloadable via PlayStation Network:
• God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges to complete
• Dominus character skin
• Apollo character skin
• Phantom of Chaos...
According to PSU, a variety of content can be unlocked, including a dynamic PS3 theme, in-game costumes for Kratos, and PC desktop wallpapers.
To quote: "In the following Creating the Chimera documentary you'll not only enjoy Sony Santa Monica describe their enemy character design process, but also at around the seven-minute mark you'll spot the latest build of the game.
Though the quality of the video is not up to scratch, you may notice improved lighting with new sunlight effects, and also the latest inclusion of object motion blur, making the gameplay all the more realistic."
