US GoW III listed as March 16, UK date in “next few weeks”

Wednesday, 13th January 2010 09:46 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Gamestop’s now listing God of War III as a March 16 release, and it sounds as though the European date isn’t far behind.

A SCEE rep told VG247 on the matter this morning: “I can’t comment on the US date I’m afraid. We should be able to confirm a UK release date in the next few weeks.”

A Sony corporate email is the cause of the Gamestop listing, according to this JPS piece.

The PS3 super-game’s ramping up nicely now, with a mental Special Edition priced at £110 in the UK and latest scans showing of proper emoticon-enducing Poseidon action.

It’s out on March 25 in Japan.

    19th sounds about right.

    I can’t see why Sony doesn’t shoot for a worldwide release date. The big games (God of War’s a big game right?) tend to get same date releases.

    sony tends to release their own games in short succession worldwide.. mostly in a week or less between each of the 3 teretories..

    That would mean GoW3, FF13, and Yakuza 3 within the space of about 10 days :|

    I don’t think Sony plan to sell a bunch of GoW copies in the East anyway.

    If sony release GOW3 and FF13 in the same week thats just shooting themselves in the foot. It sounds like the have pulled GT5 from japan because of the release being to close to GOW3.
