God of War: Ghost of Sparta, the PSP-exclusive inter-quel to the award-winning God of War franchise, will be hitting store shelves as well as the PSN Store just in time for the holiday season. And they aren’t stopping there.
Just launching on the same day as two of Sony’s other big holiday hitters, Gran Turismo 5 and DC Universe Online, Kratos will begin demolishing his foes once again on November 2nd, 2010. Hailed to be one of the best PSP games to date and winner of 10 “Best Of …” awards at E3 this June, Ghost of Sparta certainly looks to impress. But that’s not even the big announcement. If you preorder the game, Sony will be giving you the Ultimate DLC pack at launch. What would such a pack include if it’s called “Ultimate?”
- Ghost of Sparta Original Soundtrack – Be part of the legacy, and relive the emotional soundscape of defiance and rage through the original soundtrack.
- PSP Theme – Are you the ultimate God of War fan? Prove it with the God of War: Ghost of Sparta theme.
- PS3 Dynamic Theme – Fully animated in constant motion, personalize your PS3 system with the official God of War Dynamic Theme.
- PlayStation Network Avatar – Be one of the few to own the exclusive Kratos Avatar only available through this pre-order.
- Legionnaire Skin – Discover the origins of the Spartan warrior as you experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta as Legionnaire Kratos.
- EXCLUSIVE Game Directors Documentary – A full length featured video roundtable with all of the past and present Game Directors for the God of War franchise in front of a live studio audience, including: David Jaffe, Cory Barlog, Stig Asmussen, Ru Weerasuiya and Dana Jan.
At no cost to you, merely a preorder. For those people who STILL don’t have a PSP yet, or those who are looking to add to their collection, Ghost of Sparta will be released with a limited edition PSP bundle. By preordering the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack, you’ll not only get the previously mentioned Ultimate DLC pack, but you’ll also be receiving:
- Black and Red Two-Toned PSP-3000
- God of War: Ghost of Sparta UMD Game
- God of War: Chains of Olympus PlayStation Network Downloadable Game Voucher
- Kick Ass – UMD Movie
- 2 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo
Also, Sony Marketing Specialist Ken Chan has confirmed that the Ultimate DLC Pack WILL be available for PSPgo owners. Similar to the bonuses with the release of Gran Turismo on PSP, if you purchase Ghost of Sparta within the first week of launch on the PSN Store, you will receive the pack.
It all sounds too good to be true. Which will you be buying on November 2nd? If you’re like me, probably all three.
