Trivia

Ghost of Sparta Teaser

In the description of the "King of the Hill" trophy, there is a link to the website www.spartansstandtall.com . At first, the site only showed some light rainfall. Over time, this turned into heavier rainfall, and an image of Kratos became visible in the reflection in the water. In the end, the website revealed itself to be a teaser site for a new game in the God of War series: God of War: Ghost of Sparta.

Technology

Ken Feldman, Art Director for God of War III, mentioned that not only is the game "6-7 times bigger than anything put out on other platforms", but that it would take the power of two PlayStation 2 systems to load just the Kratos model.
