Update: God of War III to hit Spring 2009?

According to our source at Gamestop, starting March 5, EB Games and GameStop stores nationwide will begin taking reservations for God of War III.

With the release of God of War: Chains of Olympus on PSP, SCEA has given Gamestop the go ahead to begin taking preorders for the much anticipated God of War III. For those of you who have picked up your copy of Chains of Olympus today, you may have noticed the God of War III "Coming Soon" advertisement on the back of the game’s instruction manual.

As of right now all that is confirmed is that God of War III will support 1080p and have both SIXAXIS and rumble functionality.

Stay tuned to PSU for more information, as tomorrow we should get an update on price and estimated release date.


Update: Beginning today, Gamestop and EB Games are taking pre-orders for God of War III. As of now they have the title listed to release March 2009 and for $59.99. Since Gamestop receives their release dates from their distributors, our guess is that SCEA plans to have God of War III ready sometime around Spring to Summer of 2009.
