Includes Garnet Red PlayStation 3, all six God of War games, more.

In light of the upcoming God of War: Ascension, Sony is planning a God of War: Ascension PlayStation 3 hardware bundle for release on March 12.

The “Legacy Bundle” will include a 500 gigabyte Garnet Red PlayStation 3 system, a red DualShock 3 controller, a copy of God of War: Ascension, a copy of God of War Saga (which includes all five prior God of War games), and a 30-day PlayStation Plus membership for $349.

If you’re looking to get into the series but don’t own a PlayStation 3, this is your ticket.

In other news, Sony also released a new developer video discussing the making of the Manticore, one of the beasts Kratos will face in Ascension. Watch it below.

      Tossed it in. Out of the loop today ’cause I just got home. Of course the GTA news had to come out when I wasn’t able to post it. xD

        It’s no problem. I got home not long ago myself, I just happened to see the video on youtube. :)

    Good job bundling with PS Plus, that’s just as important, if not more, than using Ascension to sell PS3s.

      My sentiments exactly. I also really like how the red came out for the super slim.

    The one they released for the GoW fan was 100 times better than this, still boggles my mind why they didn’t mass produce it

  • LordKaiser

    Excellent bundle! Well played Sony.

    Saw some joke on IGN commenting that “this bundle is overpriced at $350. For $330 it would be a better deal”.

    His moronic comment was followed with “thats just way too much GoW for anyone”.

    Can anyone explain to me why this generation of gamers is so self entitled and mentally incapable of recognizing a value when they are presented with one?

    This bundle is amazing and If I didnt already have 2 PS3’s in my home and all the GoW’s already I would pounce on this as any reasonable person should.
