Leipzig Games Convention 2007 News

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.
