When unlocking the platinum trophy in God of War III, a link to a website is given:

The original Ghost of Sparta site title screen.

In the upper right corner of the site a spartan shield and a meter were shown. When another quarter of the meter was filled, the site got updated with another sign.

On May 5, 2010, the site header said God of War 3 - Ghost of Sparta.


1. The first sign of the site was gentle rain and little thunder.

2. The second sign of the site was heavy rain, massive thunder and a chaotic lightning storm.

3. The third sign of the site showed the outline of a man looking into the water at his reflection.

4. The fourth sign simply opened the website.

The final sign showed Kratos' younger self reflected in the water


  • If closely examining the reflection in the water, it can be easily determined Kratos is in fact looking down upon a younger reflection of himself, as the game promises to reveal more of his early years and family.
  • According to Joystiq, and now confirmed by the site itself, the Spartans Stand Tall website was created to announce God of War: Ghost of Sparta.
  • Clicking the Ghost of Sparta logo on top, redirects the webpage to the Playstation Blog announcement on Ghost of Sparta.
