256w ago - Today PlayStationUniversity.com (linked above) has uncovered a new God of War III PS3 video that showcases an updated build of the game.

Apparently the video, dubbed Creating the Chimera, is part of a Slurpee promotion.

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."

The electronics giant have confirmed that the Slim's new Cell is "manufactured using an advanced 45-nanometer manufacturing process" that will deliver "many performance improvements while drawing less power than earlier chips".

These chips are obviously cheaper to produce and, in part, are responsible for the smaller and more power effective PlayStation SKUs.

To quote: "The new chip has been manufactured using an advanced 45-nanometer manufacturing process, an IBM spokesman said. Based on IBM's Power architecture, the chip delivers many performance improvements while drawing less power than earlier chips, IBM has said.
