We know that a vast majority of the gaming media consumers out there have a fairly negative outlook when it comes to pre-orders for popular titles (did anyone really have a hard time finding Halo 3
last September?), but that's not why we're writing about the recent pre-order listings on Amazon
for the next (Barlog-less) installment
in the well-received God of War
franchise. What we find intriguing is the March 2 release date listed on both websites -- three quarters earlier than the last rumored launch window
for the title. Is this wishful thinking from these two gaming retailers, or could the further adventures of everyone's favorite ashy Spartan hit shelves much sooner than expected?
