  • i thought he was lookin at the camera because of that mind blowing little factoid. 2 ps2’s just to run kratos’ footprint. Jeffs expression was like ‘did you hear that????’ purely insane. can’t wait. btw the gf is pumped about this too!


  • Are they working on a demo?

  • I love when Jeff looks into the camera it makes me laugh!

    This is what the PS Blog is all about, I LOVE IT! Hopefully we get some Naughty Dog interviews as the hype train rolls out with Uncharted 2.

  • Load up 2.70 already… Please

  • @54…I was going to say that as well fellow kratos avatar…user.

  • Once again, good interveiw. Im looking forward to playing so bad. I think greek mythology is awesome.

  • Please put firmware 2.70 back online again :)

  • Is there going to be a Collector’s Edition Jeff? Because I don’t want to miss it!!!

  • i cant for this game so im playing heavenly sword atm and i rly have to say it deserves a sequel

  • I wasn’t really excited at first, but these interviews are growing on me! :D

  • Yayuh! Another great interview :)

    Off topic: I heard Firmware 2.70 is coming this week.

  • Nice interview thanks again

    More im hearing about this game more i want it now!! XD ok ill wait

  • Kind of weird to already have this information and getting it now again. Then saving what you think is the most exciting part for last for a game that looks to be a year out.

    15watt light bulb from a hundred miles away?

  • Hi Jeff, is there any chance that we will be able to see the demo that was shown to you guys anytime soon? (by soon i mean today/tomorrow:P)

  • Keep it up Jeff great interview. I cant wait for this game. so no public vids of gow3?

  • Haha, these interviews are great. I wasn’t terribly interested in this game before, but now it’s become a near must-have title.

  • omg i cant wait!!

  • You are the worst interviewer I’ve ever heard.

    You are doing a disservice to the creators. We are not 10 years old. Ask about character development, moral ambiguity vs. Krato’s struggle w/ his concise…not if the art director watched Friday the 13th for violent references.

    How do you have a job?

  • The one thing i would like to know, how deep is the story line. I think I should be more clear, how long do you plan the game to be. Is it going to be 20hrs straight through and with side missions 30hrs.

    Has it been decided what size of medium you will be using. 25gb or 50 gb or higher.

    What new creatures were designed specificly for the 3rd installment.

    Is there anything coming back from the first game.

  • @68

    New here?

    Maybe he has the ‘job’ because he has some CLASS.

  • Jeff…I don’t have a passport..how can I convince you to send me a GDC blog lounge Tshirt?

  • Dead Space is great!

  • Great interview. I found the talk about gore part interesting. He certainly has a good taste in games.

  • lol, So I’m not the online crept out by when Jeff looks to the camera at 1:56.

    Jeff, don’t do that again for humanity’s sake!

  • I try to stay away from previews just so that I don’t get many spoilers before the game is released. But I just can’t help but watch these videos. ARGH!!!

  • great interview… jeff you shouldn’t look at the camera during interview !!! haha

  • I can’t wait for this game. The trailer is epic.

  • Come on Jeff. I think you’re torturing us. I’m really Full hyped about this one. I love my PS3.

  • wow, that was a REALLY great interview, I really can’t wait to get this game now.

  • i hope the game is longer or as long as the second one. i been waitin so long for this game and i would b really dissapointed. id still buy it thou lol.

  • I find it awesome how much the internal tea,s seem to talk to each other and respect each other. I consider all of the studios extremely talented, so I can just imagine the greatness that comes about when they share and converse.

  • Great interview revealing the depth of work going into development of God of War III.

    @34 Jeff when you look AT the camera at 1:56
    I actually thought you were looking THROUGH the camera. It reminded me of Japanese horror movie Ringu… But then you switched back to normal Jeff!

  • Inspiration from Dead Space, Uncharted and Killzone? Not a bad list of games to take influences from!


  • these interviews are awesome Jeff, really interesting to watch, keep em’ coming!

    and a little hint…it’ll be awesome if you can talk to the Gran Turismo guys ;)

  • another good interview.

  • Jeff is there any tentative date for GOW3? at least can you tell you if it will be out in the last quarter of this year?
    Thanks a lot for your patience reading all us, fans of God of war :)

  • Can someone please ellaborate on the tech-side?

    Memory footprints?
    50 dynamic lights per vertacy?

  • this game will be sweet.. a must HAVE..

  • Totally off subject, Jeff, but it is about an awesome game at GDC we all want to know about. Why is IGN running stories about Fat Princess and you guys aren’t? I wouldn’t be so intrigued if the didn’t play it IN THE BLOG LOUNGE!!! What the crap man?

  • you know what i came to my senses and i’m not really worried if it comes out later this year or even april 2010. i just want it to one of the best games to have ever come out. so please don’t rush this game and make a gory masterpiece!

  • It’s looking incredible. Can’t wait!

  • Man i can’t wait to get GoW3. Sony puts a smile on my face. I’m glad i have a PS3

  • jeff… i think u have 1 of the best jobs out there…


  • I really enjoyed this interview!

    Thanks Jeff, and thanks Ken!

  • Just give me a 2009 release date so I can get an end to all the yapping from the 2010 prolongers.

  • So.. GOW3 has been in the works for about 4 years ? :)
