God of War 3 and 7 Eleven Goodies

I’m surprised no one has posted anything on this yet. Anyway, Sony seems to have quite a bit of marketing for God of War 3 through 7 Eleven of all places. Evan Brody, the Marketing Manager for Slurpee and Big Gulp, has announced some of their marketing plans via the Official Blog. First up, the new Slurpee campaign has a new flavor, called “Kratos Fury”, which is a “perfect blend of ferocious blackberries and frosty limes”, which will be available at 7 Eleven stores for the months of February and March.

To go along with the new flavor is God of War III-inspired cups to hold the Slurpee (4 in all, the above image just shows the back end of it at the end). You’ll also get Slurpee Nation rewards from each cup as well, which can be redeemed at Slupee.com, which will get you God of War and Slurpee-themed downloadable content.

The Official Blog has some shots of the exclusive content, including a theme, a skin for Kratos, virtual shirts for PlayStation Home and a downloadable clip (“Creating the Chimera” was pictured). 2 liter and 20oz bottles of Moutain Dew will also have vouchers for the PlayStation Home teeshirt or a Mountain Dew hoodie.

The news had been reported by 7 Eleven themselves, but Sony will supposedly have more details next week.

UPDATE:
Looking through the comments from the source, there will be a static and a dynamic God of War 3 theme via the Slurpee Nation rewards.

Introducing Vanquish

Platinum Games has released this new trailer of what I’m going to assume is an upcoming game.

Is it a game? Is it a movie? Is it the new season of Power Rangers? Judge for yourself.

Vanquish is said to be a new sci-fi action adventure game from the creator of Resident Evil Shinji Mikami with CG scenes produced by Logan, who worked on the intro of Metal Gear Solid 4.

Don’t worry! It only affects Japan where it has been pushed back by just over a month to April 29th, MGS:PW will still be released late May in Europe and the US.

The game was originally penciled in for March 18 in Japan, but will not be released on April 29. The Western release dates will not be affected: the game will still be released on May 27 in Europe (May 28 in the UK) and on May 25 in the US.

I’m still working my way through the demo so expect some impressions on pant viewing and cloned Snakes soon.
