GoW: Chains of Olympus pushed to early 2008

A sad day for mobile gamers and fans of the hit God of War franchise, as circulating rumors over the past few weeks have finally materialized in the form of an official press release today.
During the Leipzig Games Convention, Sony announced that God of War on PSP, originally expected for Christmas, will now be pushed into 2008. With this news coming from abroad, we hoped it might just be a European delay, but a quick check of online retailers proved otherwise. Unfortunately we could be looking at anywhere from January to end of April.
PSU on the other hand likes to play devil's advocate and think delaying a game isn't the most detrimental news. With rumors of Oblivion being scrapped and other much longer delays, maybe this is a blessing in disguise. We will venture to suppose that gamers would much rather see a perfectly polished game and wait a month, then rushing this powerhouse before the holidays.
Stay tuned to PSU for more information on GoW.

If you think about it,it is probably for the best.Sure they might lose a couple of sales,but they will succeed in making a timeless classic,by taking all the time they need.

I'm still a huge fan of getting a complete, bug free game, then an early release. That being said the guy who really pushes for these developers to give the public a release date needs to be fired. Instead tell the development team to let you know when they have a good solid date in mind, and go with that.

You won't stop anybody from posting the 1st post crap here, so just grit your teeth and bear it, as much fun as it is seeing you get worked up over a 13 year old. TruBlu2, grow up. Anyway, I'd rather have GoW pushed back into 2008 so I have something to look forward to after the holiday season.

I rather wait then get a rushed game.
