E3 08: God of War III E3 Conference Impressions
Sony confirmed that Kratos is coming to PlayStation 3, and teased us with a short trailer of the game.
God of War fans have long-hoped that the series would come to the PlayStation 3, and this year Sony finally confirmed it was going to happen. Details remain scarce, and the trailer didn't show any in-game footage, but it's likely that the announcement alone will be enough for salivating fans.
The trailer itself showed a dark and rainy Greek landscape, with the voiceover explaining how the walls of Olympus have been breached. Predictably, it's down to Kratos to save the day, and as our anti-hero is introduced the voiceover continues to explain how Kratos 'must suffer in the end'. The extremely short trailer finished with Kratos standing atop a hill, the camera holding his gaze.
The trailer was unfortunately all pre-rendered footage, but it was pretty impressive nonetheless. Jack Tretton introduced the game merely as 'God of War III', and said that it would be released 'beyond this holiday season'. If we hear any more details during the E3 conference, we'll be sure to let you know.
