Rumours are building about the existence of a new PlayStation-branded crossover fighter after website PlayStation Lifestyle recently discovered a rather ominous looking domain registration. The domain is titled “playstationallstarsbattleroyale.com” and is apparently attributed to the following:
Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC 919 E Hillsdale Blvd Foster City, CA 94404 US
Earlier rumours about the fighter surfaced last November when an image of Sweet Tooth emerged from a supposedly in development game called ‘Title Fight’, whereas recent rumbling are pointing towards Geoff Keighley’s latest teases about a “Huge, new PS3 [...]
The industry’s worst kept secret is officially out. Following a leak by Amazon, Sony have finally decided to unveil the next entry in the God of War franchise. Titled God of War: Ascension, the game is set to be a prequel staring series icon Kratos in a time before he was made a rage-filled god.
Judging from the trailer, box art and teaser images that have been released, it’s clear that Sony Santa Monica are trying to humanise Kratos after God of War 3 saw him reach almost comical levels of fury and wrath. It’ll be interesting to see how they choose to portray the softer side of their typically brutish protagonist.
The game will be directed by Todd [...]
With Sony‘s Holiday 2012 schedule looking a little bare, one can only speculate as to what the teaser is talking about.
So here we are looking at the latest Sony teaser for the upcoming season of their reality show, The Tester, and it’s giving us an inside look at one of their most successful studios, Santa Monica Studios. Looking a little closer at one of the devs at work and we can see a familiar face, Kratos, and an unfamiliar level being worked on.
Now this could mean one of several things, but being the observant optimists that we are, we’ll go ahead and call it – God of War IV.
The unconfirmed sequel in the franchise has been subject to a plethora of rumors and this may be just another shred of evidence to shed light on Kratos’s future.
Sony is not very good at keeping secrets. We all know that a new God of War game is on the horizon and the latest bout of over-zealous CV flaunting has all but confirmed it. Composer Timothy Williams recently cited “God of War IV” on his resume, referring to the game as “upcoming”. This isn’t the first time the game’s existence has been rumored, with UK PlayStation magazine PSM3 previously hinting at a September 2012 release date.
The latest bout of speculation only backs up logical assumptions relating to a new title in the series, especially considering the fact that most of Sony’s AAA franchises run on a two year cycle and God of [...]
Sony has given the latest edition of Mortal Kombat the treatment with exclusive content for its version of the game.
In clear printing at the top of the cover box art. Sony has made sure people know Kratos is available, “Only on PlayStation,” with, ”Exclusive Content” clearly being marked across the top of the box, just to be sure people didn’t understand what that meant (or parents for that matter).
Mortal Kombat is releasing this April for PS3 and Xbox 360.

A few new screenshots of God of War III were released today (January 25, 2010). They show Kratos doing what he does best – killing gods. Kratos is responsible for Killing Ares and Athena and now he’s set his sights on Hades.
My only question is when Kratos kills Hades (and we know he will) where does Hades’ soul go?
God of War III will be released in North America released March 16, 2010 on the PS3.
