Confirmed: God Of War 3 Hits March 2010 for PlayStation 3

250°
313w 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.

The Increase percentage from 2nd to 1st shows at as 600% increase. It has even bested the likes of Wii Fit, yesterday it was in second place, and I wouldn't be surprised if it took the...
 

Assassin's Creed 2 Confirmed for PS3, Available by March 2010

100°
314w ago - Ubisoft's third quarter [Register or Login to view links] 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.

To quote: While technically impressive, Assassin's Creed was a bit lacking in the gameplay department, we felt. A great proof-of-concept, but without enough fresh content to keep from getting stale after a while. Something we're hoping to see improved in the sequel.

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.
 

Tomb Raider Underworld DLC Dated: February & March 10, 2009

50°
314w ago - Remember that retail listing for the Tomb Raider Underworld "Expansion Token Pack" with a January 21st ship date?

Well, you can divert your attention until February 10 when "Beneath the Ashes" - the first of two Xbox 360-exclusive DLC episodes - brings six new costumes, 125 additional achievement points, and some "never-before-seen caverns and age old crypts" to Lara's latest.

The second episode - "Lara's Shadow" - follows on March 10 and, we presume, will feature another 125 achievement points.

The press release curiously avoids any mention of price but - seeing as how the email in our inbox reminded us that "the codes to download this content will be available at GameStop" - we're going to assume that despite managing to botch the date, GameStop's got the $10 per episode asking price right. We've asked an Eidos rep just in case.

Confirmed: X-Edge (US) is Coming in March 2009 to PlayStation 3

319w ago - Speaking to [Register or Login to view links], an NIS America representative confirmed the rumors that the ensemble RPG X-Edge will be headed for the US.

That's great news for traditional JRPG fans everywhere - the Compile Heart title features characters from the companies Capcom, Namco-Bandai, Gust, Idea Factory and Nippon Ichi.

Mark your calendars, the game will be released in March 2009.

To quote: X-Edge just seems to have NIS America all over it. It features characters from Disgaea, Mana Khemia, Ar tonelico, Spectral Souls, and the Atelier series. I mean, come on, there are even Prinnies. When should we expect to see it in North America?

NISA: X-Edge is an interesting project since it's a collaboration between 3 different companies. It's pretty funny to see a little Prinny fight characters from Darkstalkers like Morrigan and Demitri.

The release date isn't finalized yet, but it's going to be in March 09.
