God of War: Ghost of Sparta will explore Kratos's "dark past"

Sony had an extra-special announcement today for all the extra-special God of War fans out there, especially the ones who still haven't had their fill of chimera evisceration and deicide. The fact that God of War 3 is over and done with doesn't mean Kratos gets to kick back and put his feet up, as God of War: Ghost of Sparta, the second PSP exclusive GoW game, was announced today. No rest for the wicked, as they say. Hit the jump for the details. Read More

Konami Announces Second Peace Walker PSP Bundle

Konami today announced a second limited edition PSP Bundle for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker – slightly better than the first but for the same price. This is the first limited edition PSP bundle in two years for what is possibly the most important game for the PSP right now. Wherever gamers get a bundle for Peace Walker, for $200 they'll get a limited edition green PSP with the game, a voucher to download in-game content as well as an as-of-yet-unnamed movie from the PlayStation Store, and a memory stick.

God of War Fun Facts

A few factoids which may interest fans of Kratos and Sony's God of War series have emerged today. Nothing so much about the franchise's future installment, God of War III, but rather some things about past iterations. For starters, God of War: Chains of Olympus lead level designer Dana Jan revealed in a recent roundtable interview with Industry Gamers that developer Ready at Dawn had given consideration to making the PlayStation Portable offshoot a 2D-styled game. "There were early discussions of making Chains of Olympus a side-scroller rather than 3D in case the experience couldn't be fully realized on a handheld," he explained. "This really fueled us to prove that it could be done." Read More

Ready at Dawn Developing New Middleware Engine

Despite having only released three titles, developer Ready at Dawn has already established itself as one of the premiere developers in the industry. After all, they've been one of the few to truly figure out the PSP, having worked on the excellent Daxter and God of War: Chains of Olympus. Now, the company is set to take their development knowledge to the next level, releasing a new middleware solution for the PSP, Xbox 360, and PS3. "At Ready At Dawn Studios, we are faced with the challenges of making a great game everyday," said company president Didier Malenfant. "We are building something for developers who are tired of the challenges of PC engines shoe-horned into consoles, or trying to stitch together layers upon layers of middleware from multiple vendors. Our solution will be a complete game development platform that simply works." The engine, cleverly titled the Ready at Dawn Engine, will be made in order to ease cross-platform development, providing tools and support for developers around the world. Read More

PSP Game Vouchers Arrive in Stores

In an effort to keep new PSP content on retail shelves, Sony has started releasing vouchers for downloadable PSP games. So far these vouchers are only for select North American retailers. So far, Sony has only released vouchers for 10 games published by them like God of War Chains of Olympus and Gran Turismo. No word on when vouchers for third party games night appear. Sony is likely doing this to allay the fears of retailers that they will only be able to sell the PSPGo itself, losing them software sales. When Patapon 2 released in North America in May exclusively as a digital download, a voucher was released to retailers. All of the recently released vouchers are for games that have disc versions. Currently, Sony has no plans to release these vouchers in Europe. Europe will only get money cards for £20 and £50. These basically serve the same purpose as the $20 and $50 Playstation Store cards already available in North America. Read More
