The official release date for God of War: Chains of Olympus has finally been set following earlier reports that the title had been pushed back in to early 2008.

While we are unsure of a European launch date, expect to see Chains of Olympus on shelves in North America from March 4th, 2008.

The free UMD demo issued by PlayStation Underground is still on tack to ship this month, and gamers fortunate to enough to have signed up should expect to see it sometime in the near future. There have also been rumors of a downloadable demo, though nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

The new version of GoW for the PlayStation Portable has been touted as the closest Sony has come to a "portable [PlayStation 2]" game. Originally scheduled to appear this holiday season, many observers have noted the games delay as a major disadvantage for Sony’s handheld system, as the title was expected boost sales by a considerable margin over the Christmas period.
