God of War is absolutely going to be given a PS3 debut at some point in the future, that's a given. But it looks like Sony's internal studio will be taking its time.
Speaking to GameDaily, GoW II 's director Corey Barlog explained, "All the people who bought the first game were PS2 owners, so we wanted to stay with that... I want to make the PS3 version of this game, absolutely, but I don't want to make it quickly. I don't want to quickly rush it out the door and be like, 'Oh my gosh, we need to get this out!' because we probably would have pushed ourselves to make it around the launch window and I think we would have sacrificed something by trying to take what we had and shoving it in there as quickly as possible."

Wise words we feel, as GoW II is looking like the last great PS2 game of its generation. We all know GDC is just around the corner, and Sony is quietly talking up PS3 ahead of the event. It's wishful thinking, but wouldn't it be awesome if GoW III made a surprise appearance...?
