Sony is continuing their marketing push outside the world of video games with another venture with the venerable chain 7-Eleven. As you can no doubt tell by the picture above this time Sony is pushing the God of War series with a series of cups, promotional items and even a God of War Slurpee flavor.
Starting on February 1 gamers can go to their local 7-Eleven to try out the Kratos Slurpee flavor (a blend of blackberry and lime) which was created by the always stellar Mountain Dew. You know the Kratos Slurpee is going to be amazing since Mountain Dew was responsible for the Halo and Warcraft drinks and they know what gamers want out of a tasty beverage. (rolleyes.gif)
But there will be some cool things offered to gamers as the Kratos Slurpee along with two-liter and 20-ounce Mountain Dew products will contain codes for God of War DLC. The content offered in these codes range from small things such as behind-the-scenes videos and PS3 themes to more substantial stuff such as new armor for Kratos.
All in all Sony’s latest venture with 7-Eleven seems pretty solid. I’m happy to see that Sony is really pushing the God of War franchise and it’s also nice that they’re starting to advertise more to the mainstream since several TV commercials will air for the 7-Eleven promotion. Though I have to say I’m a bit disappointed the Kratos Slurpee isn’t blood red. I mean c’mon, blueberry and lime? You might as well put a little fancy umbrella in the drink if that’s the best the angriest man in video games can get.
