253w ago - Gamestop sources have unveiled an e-mail sent to them by Sony that state March 2010 is the current (estimated) release date for God Of War 3 for the PS3.
This may come to many as a disappointment, but not for me. I see this as extra time for Sony to polish up a great title that is already looking outstanding from the few trailers out so far.
I see this a better opportunity for us gamers to get the full experience from a game; there already is a bunch of great Sony titles coming out in 09 and not to mention the multiplatform titles as well.
I like buying all hot titles on launch day even if I haven't beat the previous game played, its just in my nature. I will give the newer games a test run, but quickly return to my previous game to finish it. I don't like doing it like that, so its good to see space between all these titles to be released in 09.
On a side note, Killzone 2 sets off the PS3 for 2009, just as GoW 3 will set it off in 2010. Killzone 2 has jumped from sales rank of 40th to 7th to 1st on overal video game sales which according to amazon represents a 1900% increase.

254w ago - Ubisoft's third quarter earnings report has finally officially confirmed that the sequel to 2007's best selling assassinate-em-up, Assassin's Creed, will be available for Sony's PS3 console before the end of March 2010.

The report also mentions that there will be seven franchise titles being released during the fiscal year starting this April, including Splinter Cell Conviction (which we can assume is still 360 exclusive), Ghost Recon and, as we've already mentioned, Assassin's Creed 2.
There will also be three new IPs, including I Am Alive. No other games in these categories were mentioned, so no doubt Ubisoft has a few more surprises up its sleeve.
