It's official, GOW3 will be out in North America on March 16th! Here is the official cover for the game. I know that some of you may not like it but let me offer a little explanation for you guys. This year so far, the action category is packed full of games with games like Bayonetta, Darksiders, and the upcoming Dante's Inferno. Chek out their covers:
As you can see all of these are all very cool covers. They all feature the main character in a cool action pose with tons of detail. Now imagine all of them sitting on the store shelve next each other, they begin to blend in with each other and thus loose their impact. Now imagine a whole shelve of the GOW3 cover box at Gamestop. In my opinion, marketing did a good job in choosing this cover so that it can stand out a little bit more from the standard action game cover box art. I know that this cover does not match the traditional covers of the other GOW games and I'm sure they really kept that in mind. All I am asking you guys to do right now is to go to and get you copies of GOW 1 and 2, open the box and carefully slide out the sheet from the cover and look in the back. As you can see both GOW 1 and 2 have an additional image that can be flipped and used as another cover. Well without saying too much I would suggest that you try the same when you get your copy of GOW3 and you might be surprised. Also, here is a pic of the box for the Ultimate Edition, enjoy!
