This God of War III Box Art Is Not Final

Illustration for article titled This God of War III Box Art Is Not Final

It says so right on the recently released, still unofficially finalized box art, meaning your copy of God of War III could very well look different. Placeholder though it may be, it's both attractive and subtle.


Perhaps too subtle. Rarely do we see North American games veering from the standard box art path. But considering Sony's PlayStation 3 box art preference of focusing on the face—see Killzone 2 and Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time—and the God of War III cover showing up on and Sony's retailer extranet, it could happen.

And if it does, just how far will Sony zoom in for future games? Will The Last Guardian just feature a giant retina?

How do you judge this cover, Kotaku readership?

Thanks to Veton and Jason for the heads up!



I prefer something that encapsulates what God of War is about, which this does not; it's not very dramatic for a dark epic.

Aside from that, standing alone, I don't find it much worth looking at, probably because there isn't much to see.

Edit note: italicized title of the game.
