Kratos’ Revenge Starts With a Midnight Release

March 6, 2010 Written by Jonathan Leack

God of War III is almost upon us with less than two-weeks until the official debut of Kratos’ assault on Mount Olympus. If the Gods themselves cannot stop Kratos, then he will not be contained within standard business operating hours.  That is why one of the largest retailers in the US has announced that they will be celebrating the release of God of War III with a special midnight event.

Best Buy will be holding a midnight opening for God of War III’s North American release. Gamers across the country have been invited to join the title’s debut at one of over 200 Best Buy retailers. Check with this list below…
