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%26rsquo; ocular socket with your bare hands like God of War II does, so perhaps it%26rsquo;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%26rsquo;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%26rsquo;re guessing it%26rsquo;s them. Interestingly, he also confirmed that the game will be an all-new continuation of the GoW saga; it%26rsquo;s not a PSP port of either of the existing PS2 games.
Barlog also hinted that it wouldn%26rsquo;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.
