God of War is a PlayStation exclusive franchise and Pi Studios wanted to make a rival franchise for Xbox 360.
why they didn't go to Sony or nintendo then when MS didn't want it ??!!
Should do a kickstarter or go find a supportive publisher. It's not normal for MS to give a chance to any game they don't think will sell millions.
Do you think MS would spend million make a new AAA games? lol How can this rival god of war when it's only an xbla game.. It was supposed to be f2p. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Hope the devs are a success though.
is as good a rival to god of War as it relates to the 360. The game played very similar and i really enjoyed the different levels of hell. I was looking forward to a continuation of Dante through Purgatory and possible a finale of Paradise. if not full stand alone games then some really nice DLC to add to the existing game.
Nah they didn't make it because of those amateur-level concept arts. Now I'm not saying I can do any better, but compared to some other games that aren't even big budgets, those drawings look like kids work.
many have not tried Dante inferno. Its not a half bad game. It is available on ps3 and 360.
Dantes Inferno, while not a bad game, is not in the same league as God of War 3. The graphics in God of War 3 are way better than Dantes Inferno and the gameplay is also much better on God of War
I was actually generalizing dante inferno as being similar to god of war. i mean if there was a hack slash game to want to aspire to be like it would naturally by the gow series. On the ps3 it wasnt given much credit because of GoW. To 360 only owners, its a nice alternative but you are right. it isnt gow but it can still be enjoyed.
If you don't have a PS3 and want a something both similar and still amazing as all hell, get Castlevania Lords of Shadow. It has a lot of the GOW feel, but the game is gorgeous and twice as long as GOW in it's campaign, with replayablity to explore each chapter to find all the treasures. It has huge epic bosses, great QTE moments. If you get a PS3, play GOW 3. You will truly and most literally sh*t bricks. Some of the most insane and jaw dropping fights you'll ever find in a game. Opening 20 mins is still the most epic stuff I have ever played in any game ever.
"Dante inferno is as good a rival to god of War" it's just a cheap copycap..god of war light sort of (but gow3 can't be made on 360 without loosing something) streetofragefanhater said : "sony tried with killzone and fail miserably" yeah sure, but only in your delusional/denial land of fantards only.
@Darth The game was crap on either system dude. It's not that PS3 gamers felt threatened by it or any of that foolishness that you appear to be implying. The game was just terrible. It's like calling Quantum Theory a suitable rival to Gears of War. A better choice for gamers that can't play GoW due to it's exclusivity would be Castlevania. It's still not on par with GoW but what is? What it is is a decent enough game that didn't forget to include a 3rd act like Dante's Inferno. Seriously, the last few levels of Hell were pointless. Hell, one of those levels of Hell was just a f***ing challenge room. Something you'd see listed on the main menu after New Game and Load Game. Dante's Inferno was awful and not what you'd expect from the people that gave us Deadspace.
Sorry, i havent played the Castelvania game. so therefore i could not suggest it. I will have to check it out as i do enjoy the hack/slash games. Im an old school castlevania fan and just hadnt gotten around to playing this new one but if its as cool as you suggest then im sure i will enjoy it. Oh and there was no implications that DI was a threat to GoW. Far from it. Sometimes there are games that arent half bad when it comes to the model they are following. I can see if you didnt like it but I did. To each their own but yeah...now i need to check out Lord of shadows. Thanks for that.
@Darth Actually, judging by the disagrees, people have some taste. Dante's Inferno was terrible compared to GoW.
Dantes Inferno wasn't terrible. It wasn't in the same league as GoW but it did have a really nice combat system. It's biggest let down was that it felt you were just going room to room, clearing them as you went.
The hack and slash genre has left gameplay behind almost completely at this point in place of presentation (God of War, Dante's Inferno). The only franchise that prevents me from dismissing it as a true gaming genre is Devil May Cry
dante has better combat and story but GOW has better set pieces and higher production values. Gow combat needs to be upgraded. None of the other weapons are worth playing. The cross played way different than the sword in dantes inferno.I actually spent time deciding how to play. Gow still to much tri, tri, circle. Ninja gaiden still top of the H/S with bayo second And GOW third. Played DMC collection and it didnt stand time very well.
As if Nintendo would want such a game on the Wii/ And Sony had God of war. They should try it again anyway with other publishers I agree with NukaCola Edit---I disagree, the concept art looks pretty cool to me http://storage.siliconera.c... http://storage.siliconera.c...
@Irish they have heavenly sword.
i guess it was a fan boy developer
they brought it to a bunch of publishers, but nobody wanted it. The art work looks kinda crappy, and it never made it past concept... Did any of you click the link? Im sure if thq said to make it multiplatform and we have a deal, they would of went with it. And sony, microsoft or nintendo wouldnt publish this...
Why would MS want a God of War clone, when Darksiders and The Witcher already fill that role equally, if not better?
this looks like the worst concept art ever lol.
agreed, the concept art didn't do them any favours. still think it could have been a good game though can't think of many hack n slash games
That's true. they need someone who can draw without proportion flaws.
Your comment and the your avatar photo made me lol!!
Santa Monica should make a X-box game, a piece of the pie would go to Sony and X-box gets a cool exclusive a win win.
I'm just trying to make Sony and Microsoft share a lesbian kiss.
Um are you talking bout Sony Santa Monica? They are literally a Sony only studio so highly doubtful they're ever gonna make an Xbox exclusive. I get that you're probably making a joke, Im just clarifying some info.
Thanks Captain Ob.
That would only be a win for MS. A fair trade could be made like Halo coming over but i wouldn't want the deal. Dante's Inferno is on 360 if you want something like that. Forza would get ignored on playstation so don't send that.
Unless its horizon which is genuinely a great and fresh game
Idk DOM i would check it out but that game seems to be a forza game in name only. It would be going after the need for speed crowd instead of the GT and presumably Forza crowd. It could be good but better left on the 360. I would want alan wake and i think it would've sold better on the PS3, either as a exclusive or as a 3rd party multi-plat.
Looks like it could have been interesting.
It's a good thing it wasn't. I'd say it would be pretty tough to compete with god of war. I just don't see the 360 making a graphical impression that would even compete with god of war on the ps3.
There have been SO many God of War ripoffs, and NOT ONE of them has been even close. It has nothing to do with it's being a PS exclusive series, either -- its a great game, because it has great combat, coupled with great storytelling and camera work.
God of War will always be the best the genre has to offer as it does everything flawlessly, only Sony Santa Monica can top themselves. Also God of War and Sony Santa Monica deserve every fan of the genres respect because without them the genre would be dead now. God of War inspired many developers and they saw that hack 'n slash games could be huge success' so that gave devs confidence to make their own.
What game was similiar to God Of War? DarkSiders is the only one that come to mine.
Dante's inferno is another one.
And Dante's Inferno.
There are waaaay more than that... Heavenly Sword, Bloodforge, Garsharp, Castlevania LoS, a number of movie tie-ins like Thor or Green Lantern, and that Conan game by the Vita's best friends Nihilistic. And that's not even counting a ton of other games that didn't necessarily use the same presentation or camera, but definitely lifted the casual-friendly light attack/strong attack combat of GoW, like Force Unleashed, etc...
Darksiders was a mature zelda clone but a very good one. It has much more to with Zelda than Gow, which that thinking comes from the protagonist being eternally angry.
so they are confused as to why trying to Copy another Game didn't work ? Here is a hint. Create your own ideas. Nobody wants to play a watered down version of their favorite game.
The concept art wasn't enticing at all. I'm not surprised this got turned down.
M$ needs versitility! it needs something that can stand the test of time! If I was M$ I wouldn't buy this game either.
They have plenty versatility already. The concept was obviously lacking something since numerous publishers turned it down. It being similar to god of war is a good enough reason alone to pass on it. if you are going to invest millions into a game it should be a sure thing.
it needs to be a high calibur game like MGS to zelda, and also halo.
What being similar to a critically acclaimed, beloved and bestselling franchise is a good reason to pass on it? Are you stupid boy? Nothing is a sure thing, if a game is quality and has a decent marketing campaign it will sell.
Who needs a God of War clone when God of War has been cloning itself for 5 games now?
Have you even seen the progression the series has made? Improved visuals, improved boss fights, improved combat, and now even the addition of multiplayer. Also since you claim that the series has been cloning itself for 5 games, one would assume the reviews have gotten SIGNIFICANTLY lower because of this, correct? GoW (2005) - 94 Metacritic GoW II (2007) - 93 Metacritic GoW III (2010) - 92 Metacritic And now the PSP games which have been made by Ready at Dawn GoW Chains of Olympus (2008) - 91 Metacritic GoW Ghost of Sparta (2010) - 86 Metacritic I fail to see the significant decrease in quality. Good day sir.
Agreed. Hell, even Gamestop and Amazon (Two of the largest retailers for Games) have God of War at Gamestop: GOW1 = 9.8/10 GOW2 = 9.5/10 GOW3 = 9.4/10 Amazon: GOW1 = 4.6/5 GOW2 = 4.6/5 GOW3 = 4.5/5 Seems to me that people are loving what they're buying!
I wouldn't even bother. Xbox fanboy is mad trolling. But i bet he thinks Gears of War has improved greatly after 2.
You goofballs only served to support masa2009's comment; all of those scores got LOWER with every iteration. Great job...
There will never be a ''God of WAR game'' for Xbox 360, Wii u etc etc...Never
Of course not, the developer who makes God of War is SSM as in SONY Santa Monica.
Exactly, why bother when the 12-year-old players only like COD?
COD on PS3 outsells all but a couple of PS3 exclusives EVERY TIME. GOW3 wasn't even CLOSE to any of the COD games in sales. Now what was your point again?
Microsoft is too focused on Kinect to even consider it. Would have been great if Sony or Nintendo picked it up and it turned out to be a massive success.
I guess you missed the part where this game was in conception and passed on by EVERYONE, looooong before Kinect.
Sad to think of all the promising games that never saw the light of day while we get shits and rednundant sequels shoved down our throat
Nintendo could pick it up, but then again they might not want to fund a title that would compete with bayonetta 2 another game they are funding.
Good work ms dont give us that crap.
No guns no buy?
You want to beat God of War? Buy the Asura's Wrath franchise. Make it exclusive for the next xbox. And add some more gameplay with a few tweaks and you got the most awesome game ever! Okay maybe that's just me. Trying to rival God of War is like trying to rival Halo. It's not going to work. Sony tried with Haze, Resistance, and Killzone and failed miserably. God of War is the best of the best. Especially since Ninja Gaiden lost its way. The first Bayonetta definitely stepped it up. We'll see what it can do for the sequel.
Resistance, and Killzone are a fail ?!! Resistance 2 87$ metascore halo 4 87% metascore halo reach 91% metascore killzone 2 91% metascore hmmm...0_0
Think he meant sale's wise . @InTheLab Ninja Blades is an Xbox game developed & published by From Software
Define "failed miserably". Extremely positive to critical acclaim and sales ranging from 2-4 million is NOT "failed miserably". Going by your logic (Sales mean everything and if it doesn't sell well it "failed miserably") I guess the Forza series "failed miserably" right? lol
Forget God of war, it reminded me more of Dark Souls (from what I saw of it, didn't watch it all).
go to sony & do it.. I wouldnt mind a GOW clone
I thought they tried with that NInja Blades game a while back that nobody wanted...
It was probably crap!!!
