Wow. That would be awesome if they could release this game this year. Besides MGS, this is as confident as I can ever be to a game being universally loved by everyone. I can't wait for this game to come out!!! I love God of War. Definitely plan on playing 1 & 2 again prior to release.

No.

God of war 3 is aimed to come out this year just like Duke Nukem was aimed to come out in 1999. I doubt GOW3 delay would be that big but there is a damm big chance of it getting delayed some time.

they say this **** just to hopefully boost console sales as much as possible. God of War III will be delayed - i'd be willing to put money on it - till 2010.

doesn't matter, there are plenty of other great games coming out this year.

If this is ends up being true and comes out this year, thats a big win for Sony because its showing that it can pump out amazing epic games in a shorter ammount of time.

That would be ****ing sweet. I don't want them to rush it though. If it gets delayed until 2010, that will not bother me at all. That just means they are making it better.

Shorter amount of time? Shorter than what? Do you have any idea how long these games (Killzone 2 and GOW3) have been in development? I don't think "shorter amount of time" fits into either one of those games.

I read somewhere that while they were working on God of War 2, they had members of the team working on getting the PS3 engine up and running. So while they were working on God of War 2 in '06 - '07, they were also working on God of War 3. So about 3-4 years they will be working on it. That is along time.

This hasn't been confirmed by Santa Monica, I'll wait till they tell us the street date. Also, this could mean Sony's Fiscal Year which ends March 2010.

I wonder if they are talking about Calender year or Fiscal year. I'm extremely happy if this is true. Reason I'm wondering is because I've had it indicated to me that it would be early 2010, which is what most other people presumed.

Maybe Sony will actually pull one up on Microsoft by announcing the release date at E3 for this year, just as Microsoft announce release dates for their as yet unknown titles. Adding God of War III to the console exclusive list for this year is a major, major event.

SOny and their developers should really be on the same page before they start putin their feet in their mouths. Developers say the game needs work and wont be out til 2010 only to have sony say a week later that the game is coming out at the end of the year. It cant be both, please just choose one.
