Though not an issue for all, some gamers only want the best when it comes to video game box art. After the announcement of the American Heavy Rain art, US PlayStation 3 owners were less than pleased, resulting in an option to replace it for the European cover.
With other major titles coming out relatively soon, all eyes are on Sony's marketing department to get this right in, which is exactly what they have done with the God of War III cover.
The image depicted in the final box art will be familiar to some, though it had not been officially announced as the final cover. Sites including Amazon and Gamestop have recently updated the product information with this newest edition, with little difference from its previous place-holder.
God of War III is rated M by the ERSB due to extreme violence which some audiences may find disturbing. The game will be hitting shelves worldwide in mid March 2010.
