Get ready Spartan warriors -- the final chapter of the epic God of War series is coming out in a mere five days. If you expect that a PS3 exclusive of this caliber would receive a retail midnight madness launch event -- you assumed right.
On March 15, Future Shop is inviting gamers out to their God of War III midnight madness events, taking place in five of their largest national retail locations. Gamers hungry to get in on the action early can start lining up at 9:00pm and be among the first in Canada to play the game.
PlayStation's street team will be out to entertain the crowds at select locations through demoing the game as well as awarding gift card prizes.
The five retail stores are:
1. Nepean, ON (Merivale) – 1695 Merivale Rd. (at Basil MacDonald Way) – PlayStation street team feature
2. Toronto, ON (Yonge-Dundas) – 325 Yonge St. (at Dundas) – PlayStation street team feature
3. Edmonton, AB (South Edmonton Common) – 1320 99 St. (at Parsons Rd. NW)
4. Calgary, AB (Northlands) – 5111 Northland Dr. NW (at 52 Ave. NW)
5. Richmond, BC (Lansdowne Centre) – 5300 #3 Rd. (at Alderbridge Way) – PlayStation street team feature
All midnight madness events will run from 9:00pm - 1:30am, with doors opening at midnight.
I'll be at the Toronto Yonge-Dundas location, hope to see you there!
