Sony comments on ‘God of War Ascension’ cross-play for Vita

Sony Santa Monica’s “God of War: Ascension” is one of the PlayStation 3’s biggest releases during early 2013, however, some fans are wondering when Kratos will make his PlayStation Vita debut.

During the "God of War" PAX panel, a curious fan asked when “God of War” may find its way to the PlayStation Vita and if “God of War: Ascension” may possibly feature cross-play functionality. (God of War: Ascension, PS Vita, PS3)

This is a really badly put together article. Ignore the title altogether. Sony only comment on it because it's put to them as a question and the answer is no. The headline suggests that it not only IS being worked on but it will be a part of cross play. I smell a seed of discontent being sown here. Don't give this a hit

Fan: "Will this happen"?
Sony: "No".

Examiner.com: "No news, then...let's write an article anyway! Hey, if we word the title right, we can build false hopes and milk the fans for hits!"

A gow game on the vita maybe Deimos story would be amazing! Sad ready at dawn turned Down gow vita but hopefully someone picks it up.

Dude, Deimos was such a badass character in GOS. Wouldn't mind if he got his own game. His fighting style would be so different from Kratos too. (Gauntlet and more traditional Spartan Weapons).

Would be a cool character in PS All Stars too. Should be at least a different costume for Kratos.

SPOILER for those who haven't played Ghost of Sparte yet: Wasn't Deimos captured as a kid and held captive until Kratos rescued him, only so he could be killed moments later. How would they make a complete game out of Deimos story? Or did i mix something up?

Crap, you're right lol. Pretty sure SSM could think of something epic up for Deimos though. But they probably won't : /

Deimos will indeed be in PS All Stars as an alternative costume

Deimos is an alternative costume for Kratos in PSASBR.

They could at least give us the possibility of streaming it to the Vita since we know it's possible (at least for PS3 CFW).

i was going to say i dont know why people are complaining about this article, its a legitimate one from all i can see.

this confirms theres no GOW:A coming out on vita, and hence no cross-buy/cross-play. when you guys all champion the dozens of 'why xbox live isnt worth the money' articles every day, why cant an article like this be posted?

"Right now there are no plans for it" That doesn't mean they will not make plans for it. Kind of line how Sony wasn't getting a new gen Portable ready yet they will released the VITA. Everyone knows that Sony is ready and willing to port games across its different systems, just takes time.

I still wouldn't buy a vita. And I have plenty of money.
searcam01  +   1131d ago
Why post that comment then? You didn't even explain why you wouldn't buy it. I don't get it. Troll.

God I hope not enough with the cross-plays. Honestly people want to buy the vita for it's own games not cross-play functionality otherwise you just wasted your money. Vita needs it's own God of war game no more cross plays if this continues I'm re-selling the vita seeing as I have played the thing since the last uncharted came out on it and that was a while ago.

vita will get a GOW eventually.. Its not even a year old yet n hitting the systems peak with GOW, MH, etc right away will make any future projects less impact full.. I would rather it come out a yr or 2 into its life cycle.. Look at 3DS for example.. Its selling like crazy which is by no means a bad thing but theyre reaching their peak.. Mario kart, 3d land, n all that other stuff is already at hand.. Whats left? Zelda n hopefully a metroid n its over.. Then u gotta wait til a new handheld is born.. Give the vita some time & the games will come.. LBP & AC3 coming out this yr is a plus.. & im definitely getting the cross buy with PSABR.. Theres silent hill coming this year too..
