God of War III Mystery Website Promises Nothing

Attaining a platinum medal in the PlayStation 3's God of War III rewards players with the address to mystery web page Spartans Stand Tall, according to multiple Kotaku readers who must have excellent God of War skills. What's it mean?

So far, we've got is this web address: http://www.godofwar.com/spartansstandt...

It takes you to a web page that features the sights and sounds of a rainstorm, along with a quarter-filled meter in the upper right hand corner.

Kotaku has asked Sony for an explanation for the site, but let's all be skeptical together about them spelling things out.

Back in 2007, a God of War countdown website revealed two things: A high-definition graphics mode in God of War II and the name of the then-forthcoming PSP game God of War: Chains Of Olympus.

Usually websites like this send gamers into a tizzy wondering what they could be teasing. But let's first explore a more fundamental question: Is this even a tease?
