God of War Returning…to PSP!?

Well yowzah! Three posts within the last 24 hours…it must be a big day in either gaming or the NY Giants front office. As you can see from the title, it was a good day in gaming. As any of you can now attest to, my love for God of War is something I’m not bashful about. The ongoing chronicles of Kratos are something near obsession for yours truly.

After God of War II, the sadness sunk in as I realized my favorite gaming hero was gone for quite some time. Or was he? Once again crediting Kotaku here, it is now official that God of War is making its way to the PSP (Playstation Portable).

As a quick aside from the game itself, I would like to go on record saying that the PSP has been…well not so successful thus far. Upon its debut, gamers expected the best! The possibilities were endless with a playstation that you could simply slip into your cargo pocket. Unfortunately, the software support just wasn’t there. Gaming companies are finding it difficult to produce titles that are compatible with the unique handheld.

God of War seems to be a PERFECT chance for Sony to show that their first foray into the portable console realm is not a failure. According to Kotaku, this game is a prequel, illuminating core Kratos fans about the history of the ghostly white Spartan. The trailer for the game is narrated by who we now know as Gaia, the Titan of the Earth, who shares with viewers:

“The Ancient world speaks of a mortal that slayed a god. But long before his battle with Ares, Kratos sought absolution from his past sins by pledging himself as a champion to the gods. These brutal crusades in the name of Olympus became legendary.”

Also, Sony is actively promoting the game. While the official game site is yet to go live (beyond the background), Sony is already offering a God of War: Chains of Olympus demo for PSP users. You can enter for one of these limited demos, here.

So that’s it…time for this east coast boy to get pumped about some upcoming titles. At this point, the only problem I see is that I’ll likely be playing a lot of this before I go to bed, which may very well hinder my posting. Now there will be dozens of people without random dribble to read.

Fare thee well…
