God of War: Ghosts of Sparta confirmed for Nov. 2

It doesn’t seem to take a lot for any new and exclusive PSP game to get its own bundle nowadays, but the God of War: Ghosts of Sparta SKU announced over at the official PlayStation blog is still a bit of doozy! Officially crashing into retailers on November 2nd, folks who preorder the game will get a crapload of outstanding Kratos-related content. Take a look:

Better still, those who don’t already own a PSP have just been given ample cause to do so. Not only will you receive one of the most eagerly anticipated titles on any PlayStation platform with the Ghosts of Sparta bundle, purchasers will also get a download voucher for one of the highest rated PSP games of all time, God of War: Chains of Olympus. And Good God, would you just look at that Black and Bloody PSP-3000?!

The bundle will also include a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo and, quite fittingly, a UMD of Matthew Vaughn’s latest movie Kick-Ass!

Set between the first and second God of War games, Ghosts of Sparta will shed light on the untold events between the Gods and the easily upsetable Kratos we’ve all come to love. And as you might expect, it’s already getting praised as the “best game coming to PSP” by critics like us, which at least makes the total fangasm of a bundle look far more worth the upgrade. Especially, when compared to this upcoming PSP unit.

    DO WANT indeed! Especially that PSP! I don't care if I've already got one that's served me well for five years now.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I might just go buy another PSP 3000. That is literally THE best color scheme for the 3000 I've ever seen. And it doesn't have that glossy black finish like the piano black 3000 and the fat PS3, but rather smooth matte finish. Crimson red trim too?!?! Holy craaaap. I'm finding it so hard to resist....must....resist....buying....second....PSP....screw it. I'm buying it.

    frozenghost i am a nintendo fanboy who you can find playing on psn on most days of the week as cyberninja776 and i have both psp and ds and i can say that ds is better only because the games dont break that easily really they are that bad so i have an unbiased opipion when i say that and also cant wait for KH:BBS

    Litrock Let me guess, you're a Nintedo fanboy, bash the psp and praise the DS. Go and play Imagine party babyz on your ds meanwhile I will be enjoying hardcore real games.

    I have avoided buying a PSP so far, but not there are actually a few games that I wouldn't mind getting for it. I love the style of this one, but I am afraid as soon as I buy one they are going to announce a redesign or a new model. I don't know, I'm so conflicted. Maybe I'll just keep borrowing my brother and put that money towards the ridiculous amount of 3DS stuff I am going to buy when it comes out.

    Damn, preordering gets you almost as much stuff as a special edition.
  • Teazey - August 2, 2010 9:19 p.m.

    I see. Thank you! I do want a PSP though. I jst do not use PSN very much. I might wait for a new model that makes UMD's the main focus again.
  • litrock - August 2, 2010 8:49 p.m.

    @Teazey You can download games from the PSN on any model of PSP, assuming you have the space on your memory stick. The PSPGo is just download ONLY. On 3000 and lower models you can download or go with UMDs. Thus reinforcing how awful the PSPGo is.
  • Teazey - August 2, 2010 8:38 p.m.

    I am a bit confused here. I thought that you could only download games onto the PSPgo, so why is there a voucher to download the first GOW if you are getting a PSP 3000? I do not own a PSP, so I do not know.
  • GamesRadarChrisAntista - August 2, 2010 8:34 p.m.

    @litrock I disagree, but I still maintain that's a fine lookin' PSP! Although, I can't believe I failed to make the Virtual Boy connection... just wow
  • slickmcwilly - August 2, 2010 8:21 p.m.

    that psp looks SO dope
  • litrock - August 2, 2010 8:08 p.m.

    @cj12297 Nope. Not gonna. You know why? Because that PSP looks like ass. Black and red? You know what else was black and red? Virtual Boy. Enough said.
  • cj12297 - August 2, 2010 7:53 p.m.

    @litrock shut your face
  • Wolverine08 - August 2, 2010 7:29 p.m.

    @sleepy92ismypsn the cost apparently according to other sources will be $200 for the psp bundle, but it's damn worth it. And to those who say the psp is 'ugly'(-cough-litrock-cough...), really should've gone to specsavers. I'm sorry, but black and red is a brilliant combo for EVERYTHING! I WANT NOOOW!
  • Forrest22x - August 2, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    That PSP is as slick as a motherfucker. Now this or Kingdom Hearts..... ReCaptcha: travel, geniuses
  • litrock - August 2, 2010 7:04 p.m.

    The PSP isn't a very attractive system. And yet somehow they found a way to make it look worse. It looks like a bad case mod. Appropriately EXTREME to go with the EXTREME violence of GoW. Meh.
  • Mexiflan - August 2, 2010 6:54 p.m.

    I lol'd at the madden bundle. People really buy that?
  • sleepy92ismypsn - August 2, 2010 6:47 p.m.

    I haven't pre-ordered yet but I will soon. That psp looks fucking sick! too bad I just bought a new psp. Is their a Kratos head on the back like the last one? if so I might just have to get another psp. How much is the psp bundle?
