Today Sony announced that a demo for the highly anticipated mythological melee God of War 3 will be included on the Blu-ray disc of District 9, which hits stores December 29. Also included on the disc is an unlockable “exclusive making of featurette.”
If two months is too long of a wait, you can always buy the God of War Collection, which hits November 17, and also packs a God of War 3 demo.
Do you think that this type of cross media promotion is an effective way to get people to buy a game, or movie for that matter? Read on to find out my opinion.
Personally, I think it’s pretty clever. I assume that there is a section of the tech-savvy public that only use their PS3 as a Blu-ray player. I would imagine that by including a game demo on a special-effects heavy film, like District 9, that Sony might tap into a new market. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
As of now, God of War 3 is slated to arrive on the PS3 in March 2010.
