- While the God of War franchise has traditionally been a particularly brutal series, the developers claim God of War III will push the boundaries to the limit.
When showing off the game most recently, the developers over at Santa Monica's studio told viewers that "Some of these scenes are so violent, they are never going on the internet - at least, not by us. They're just not appropriate for some audiences."
Sony Santa Monica recently showed off God of War III's new 'Zipper Technology', a feature the developers had long wanted to include but never had the power to do so - until they had the PS3. The feature allows enemies' skin to slice open realistically, allowing for internal organs to spill out depending on the severity of the cut.
The Official PlayStation Magazine talks explicitly about seeing Kratos gutting a centaur, with the stomach, guts, and internal intestines oozing out of the wailing beast.
Just hearing that makes me squeamish. Has God of War III gone to far? Is that even possible? God of War III is due out in the fiscal year of 2009, exclusively for the PS3.
