God of War heads to PSP, Olympus

Sony unshackles God of War: Chains of Olympus for PlayStation Portable; Web site offers free UMD demo of game by mail.

It has been known for a while that the God of War franchise would be heading to the PlayStation Portable, but fans of the series have been pretty much kept in the dark about details. God of War producer Cory Barlog told GameSpot that Kratos' portable adventure would be an entirely new game, and not a rehash of an existing console God of War title, but that's about all that has been said about it.

Information may still be scant on God of War for the PSP, but at least gamers know what to call it now. Sony has unveiled the official Web site for God of War: Chains of Olympus. According to the game's product listing on the PlayStation site, Chains of Olympus will be released this fall.

For gamers hoping to get some more information on the title from the Web site, there's good news and there's bad news. The bad news is the site is still under construction and there are no screenshots, videos, or details on story and gameplay.

As for the good news, Sony is offering up a free demo of the game through the site. Those with a valid PlayStation Underground account who sign up for the demo will receive a UMD in the mail, while supplies last. Sony does not mention when the demos will be sent out or what will be featured in it.

Man, this news blew me away! If GTA and Tekken didn't convince you that having a PSP is worthwhile, this game should seal the deal!

I am so glad that this is a new game, i dont see why i should buy a game that i ve already finished. Now all thats left is DMC 1 coming out on the psp (i can not find the ps2 one any where and the ones i do find do not work) and me buying my 360, hopefully it will be a good summer for me.

bravo sony, you never dissapoint. : D and classicfan i have heard a lot of complaints about that as far as the socom series goes. i love combined assault, it is one of the if not the best online game that no one has ever played in my opinion.

I still won't understand SCEA for not beta testing the Socom Fireteam Bravo games or Socom Combined Assault what are they to lazy to finish the games now?..And there webmaster should be fired from Sony! Period!

Because of his stupidity, he's going to miss out on a great game. Bigboss232 said: "and i though the psp is maxed out after tekken" Tekken? Screw that; how about MGS: Portable Ops? Come on, your name's Big Boss!

good news for the PSP, this should really help boost sales for both the game and the handheld console. A game that kills all wii games (now and until 2008) with ease.

I was told in my local Gamestop that GoW for PSP was going to be a remake of the original. I'm glad I read this information. I wouldn't bother with a PS2 port of the first one, but a brand new game...now that gets my attention.

I love tight lipped companies, I only read parts of reviews of Games , movies and books because I prefer to be suprised while enjoying it.

Just signed up for the demo and I am very excited. Well, not just for the demo but for the game itself! I would have pre-ordered it but when I was at the store I was 100+ miles from my hometown and I could only get it at that specific store location. Sadness. I can't wait!!

Awesome!!! God of War totally rocks, and playing it on the PSP will be like a religious experience. And thanks to Dark_Alex I'll download it and play it on my psp without the need of buying, becuz I have 3.40 OE-A!!! Thank you DAX!!!

Greengoblin2099 I thinks it's set between GOW and GOW2. When you talk to Atlas he mentions something about Kratos putting him where he was. And considering how amazed I was when I saw Atlas for the first time, I don't think I ever ran across him in the first GOW. I remember Kronos but not Atlas.

This game will determine if the Psp lives or dies, cause if it manages to screw up a game as good as god of war then it doesnt deserve to exist.
