God of War confirmed for PSP, hinted for PS3

Anti-hero Kratos apparently determined to kill rest of the gods as well

Few games are so eagerly anticipated that retailers order 1.1 million copies to have ready and waiting on day one - but few games enable you to rip the eyeball from a cyclops’ ocular socket with your bare hands like God of War II does, so perhaps it’s no shock after all.

It should also come as little surprise that Game Director Cory Barlog confirmed at a press conference today that a PSP God of War is definitely in the works. The developer wasn’t announced, but given the fact that Daxter developer Ready at Dawn Studios recently re-jiggered its website to use a suspiciously familiar font, we’re guessing it’s them. Interestingly, he also confirmed that the game will be an all-new continuation of the GoW saga; it’s not a PSP port of either of the existing PS2 games.

Barlog also hinted that it wouldn’t be a shock if, in the future, a new GoW chapter turned up in 1080p resolution and sporting Sixaxis controls. That means PlayStation 3, for you duller knives in the drawer.


I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
