Sony has yet to reveal what their mysterious Facebook poster is all about, but it looks as if Amazon has well and truly let their secret out for all to see. Up on their website now is a listing for God of War Ascension, complete with box art and even a teaser trailer.

It’s a shame that Amazon has had to leak it in this way and we’re guessing that Sony will not be too happy about it. Now that it’s out there though, there’s no point hiding away from it – God of War Ascension will be coming to the PS3, but since it won’t be God of War 4, we have a sneaky suspicion that it may appear on the PS Vita as well.

In the trailer we see the words Olympus and Ghost of Sparta mentioned, which most of you hardcore fans should know highlight the two God of War games that released on the PSP – Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. The trailer also suggests that this game will be a prequel of some sort, rather than a full on sequel to God of War III.

Amazon has even decided to post the box art for the game as well. Despite them saying that the box art is ‘not final’, it looks pretty final to us and includes the standard ‘Only on PlayStation’ text in the top right corner. For those of you that are still doubting this as genuine, don’t forget that Sony’s own Facebook poster had a file name including the letters ‘gowa’ – so this is definitely real folks.

It’s not the God of War ‘Ashes’ game that some of you had been hearing about, but Ascension sounds like a pretty cool name to us. The only thing left now is for Sony to make this official, despite everyone knowing about it now – how many times has this happened to the company over the years?

What are your thoughts on a God of War prequel game folks? Are you hoping that this comes to the PS Vita as well?
