Slim PS3 news: Weekend Essentials – Issue 19

Kratos returns to bring chaos to the gods over the weekend in the colossal God of War III.

Simply godly

It’s here and it’s devastatingly brilliant – the adult action adventure God of War III has arrived exclusively on PlayStation 3 to thunderous acclaim and it’s easy to see why. With jaw-dropping visuals, blisteringly fun gameplay and memorable set pieces, this is one title which screams for deserved attention. The end of Kratos’ quest for revenge begins here.

And there’s more. If you’re lucky enough to find a copy, you can buy God of War Ultimate Trilogy Edition – available in limited numbers, so make sure you don’t miss out. This box set is a must for any God of War fan, containing not only God of War III and all the above downloads, but also classic PlayStation 2 titles God of War and God of War II (remastered in High Definition, with trophy support), an art book, postcards, an exclusive video documentary on the series downloadable from PlayStation Store, the God of War Trilogy Soundtrack and the God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War.

Truly a launch fit for any videogame god or goddess…
