God of War confirmed for PSP, hinted for PS3

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.
