God of War: Ghost of Sparta -- coming November 2.

As formally announced on the official PlayStation Blog earlier this morning, God of War: Ghost of Sparta, the second handheld epic in Kratos's increasingly gory god-slaying series of hack-n-slashers, has been saddled with a November 2nd release date, as well as a pre-order pack "worthy of the gods."

Bigger, badder, and bloodier than it's portable predecessor, God of War: Ghost of Sparta is said to boast 25% more gameplay than 2008's God of War: Chains of Olympus, as well as the ability to render more simultaneous enemy encounters, and even more monumental boss battles.

The game's "ultimate DLC" pre-order pack will hit retailers on the game's official release date of November 2nd, and will boast an impressive array of God of War goodies for myth-savvy series diehards:

* Ghost of Sparta Original Soundtrack -- Be part of the legacy, and relive the emotional soundscape of defiance and rage through the original soundtrack.

* PSP Theme - Are you the ultimate God of War fan? Prove it with the God of War: Ghost of Sparta theme.

* PS3 Dynamic Theme -- Fully animated in constant motion, personalize your PS3 system with the official God of War Dynamic Theme.

* PlayStation Network Avatar -- Be one of the few to own the exclusive Kratos Avatar only available through this pre-order.

* Legionnaire Skin -- Discover the origins of the Spartan warrior as you experience God of War: Ghost of Sparta as Legionnaire Kratos.

* EXCLUSIVE Game Directors Documentary -- A full length featured video roundtable with all of the past and present Game Directors for the God of War franchise in front of a live studio audience, including: David Jaffe, Cory Barlog, Stig Asmussen, Ru Weerasuiya and Dana Jan.

Also planned is the God of War: Ghost of Sparta Entertainment Pack. Retailing at $199, the Pack will feature a black-and-red two-toned PSP 3000, a copy of God of War: Ghost of Sparta, a PlayStation Network download voucher for God of War: Chains of Olympus, a UMD Movie copy of Kick-Ass, and a 2 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo.

Of course, Ghost of Sparta will still release pack-less and excess-free at its original $39.99 price-tag come November 2nd.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
