Well, a California federal judge has decided that there was no copyright infringement involved in the God of War games and dismisses the suit.

“That’s for the US only,” a Sony spokesperson told StrategyInformer. “We’ll announce our plans for the [UK] GOW 3 demo in due course.”
Looks like you’ll have to wait a bit longer, UK. Hopefully not much longer, but still, waiting is a bit crap.

Get yours here.

Hitting in October, United Cutlery’s Blades of Chaos will create a scaled replica of Kratos Blades of Chaos. The weapon will be a total of 20-13/16 inches long and have a 12 7/16-inch blade constructed from solid-cast zinc aluminum with a custom-etched mold texture, and unique fantasy grindings that mirror the piece used in the game.
The handle grip is injection-molded and surrounded by an intricate, detailed cast-metal guard and pommel and includes a custom display stand with the God of War logo.
Can’t wait to cut some prime rib with that.
More through the break.

Looks as though an entertainment reporter got some hands on time with the God of War movie script, and after reading it came to the conclusion that it’s like “Clash of the Titans on steroids and methamphetamines”.
Oh yeah, and the ending differs from the game.
Apparently, instead of taking over as “god of war” after killing Ares, instead Kratos throws himself from a cliff and just before he goes “splat” he says: “Your turn, Hades…” and the film cuts to black.
While it does indeed differ greatly, at least it sets itself up for the sequel where he, well, must escape Hades and exact revenge.
According to the original report from CC2K, the ending could change because the film has not started production yet.
