The graphics are incredible, I didn't think they'd be able to do much more than God of war 3 but it looks even better!

The teaser looks a bit blurry to me. Anyone else? Put it on PSN, Sony!

It looks like we'll be fighting the Kraken-like creature in the dark. OH MY GOD.

If that trailer didn't make you want to purchase the game day zero, something might be wrong.

That was well worth the wait. Short but sweet.

This trailer look pretty good but I am still concerned it will be like the E3 demo because that was a bit of a disappointment to watch
Ezz2013  +   608d ago
when i see ps3 exclusives always look this good .. i say to my self ps3 still have good years in it

this game look more epic and better than god of war 3
when i thought it would be impossible ..SSM are incredible at what they do

And its the second team!!!! Cant wait for this game. Looks amazing, and all running on a six and a half year old console
The_Infected  +   608d ago
This is what makes me wonder just what 1st part PS4 games will look like! EPIC is the only word I know to describe it.
dafegamer  +   608d ago
lol same here
CDzNutts  +   608d ago
Next Gen?

Third party games, at first, will still look like "shit".

Exclusive games, throughout, will look the best.

Same story.

IAmLee  +   608d ago
dying to watch it, but I refuse. I want to play the whole game without any idea of what to expect. It is taking all my willpower not to watch..
Conzul  +   608d ago
Your willpower is commendable. I wish I had a time-machine so I could join you :-(
Oldman100  +   608d ago
Wait...why is he white when he's with his family? I thought the whole reason he was white was because he's covered in his daughter and wife's ashes?
BitbyDeath  +   608d ago
True, maybe it's just a dream or something.
showtimefolks  +   608d ago
It's already on pre order can't wait, bosses look incredible. How is that on this so called old system we keep seeing every game looking better than the one before from Sony 1st party studios?
violents  +   607d ago
The longer any peticular system is in service the better devs will understand and be able to optimize for said system. 6+ yrs on ps3 and SSM knows how to play the ps3 like a fiddle. 1st party always has the best tools. I just wish they would share thier secrets with third parties so thier games didnt come out like crap half the time.

Holy f, dem graphics.

This looks better than God of War 3, which was pretty impressive as is. The epicness, even if it was just a little bit. Also good to see a more human side of Kratos
TheFallenAngel  +   608d ago
I know and I still think there is no console game better looking than God of War 3.
thaking155  +   608d ago
This is where Capcom should've outsourced to. Santa Monica/God Of War Team over Ninja Theory! The graphics and gameplay match Devil May Cry games of old moreso than the newbie DmC. This game is gonna be boss as well as Metal Gear Revengence! Bring it on!
Kur0  +   608d ago
Sorry but I'd rather have Platinum games do DMC. God of War is awesome and its own thing but DMC's combat needs a specific flavor that I believe only Platinum games can give.
thaking155  +   608d ago
@Kur0, I agree, either or would've sufficed better than NT. Their track record says it all. I believe that Santa Monica could've been up for the challenge and NOT included QTE (Quick Time Events) and kept that specific flavor that DMC has (Old Series) Platinum Games would've blown it out the water and they would've been #1 on my list of who to outsource it too and Santa Monica would've been a close second.

Looks gorgeous. The artstyle looks so luscious and soft, or am I just imagining that? It looks different, like a painting.

Games with boss fights always get me so excited. Such a classic staple, and GoW does it so well.

It's not just you.

David Jaffe once said that God of War 3 looked like a "painting come to life", and I could see where he was coming from - but this, Ascension looks absolutely gorgeous and smooth in a way that it actually looks like a painting that has been animated. Soft but vibrant colour palette. probably due to it being less apocalyptic and gloomy than GOW3.

And underwater boss: http://i.imgur.com/Jd6qS.pn...

Stunning, and the boss fights look like they are going to be so much fun and on a scale that goes beyond GOW3. Santa Monica are unreal!

The colors is what makes this GOW stands apart from the rest. The vibrant colors really make Ascension look great.
Can't wait.

So now all the people who where saying that multiplayer would affect the single-player can now shut up I would expect nothing less from the god of war team
Lionalliance  +   608d ago
Wow....that's rare seeing Kratos with a smile O o o
FunAndGun  +   608d ago
This is going to be such an awesome package!

A quality God of War single player experience, and an addictive multiplayer mode set in the GoW universe.

It is rare to get a solid SP and a solid MP for the same price, but I truly believe this game will deliver on both.

So hyped!!

its gonna be a tough fight for Graphics King 2013
The last of us vs GOW ascension. Seeing the single player footage, someone wont believe that its for ps3, more like for ps4 instead
Ezz2013  +   608d ago
i swear
i saw comment here say the last of us is ps4 game because the gfx is impossible on ps3

and that was after he E3 gameplay demo

@leahcim
I can clearly see a downgrade in your vision

FYI, from the PSBlog:

+ Aaron Kaufman on January 11th, 2013 at 4:53 pm said:

This couldn’t be further from the truth, but we can understand why some may have this perception given our focus on Multiplayer.

Our development team is massive, working in the same house, under the same roof on both Multiplayer, and to a much larger extent, Single-Player. Neither is getting short changed, both have the amount of resources needed to make them truly God of War “epic”. The same amount of people are working on the Ascension single-player campaign, as did for God of War 3, so you can imagine how much is being poured into it.

You should check out our latest Unchained video, “A Long Tech Journey” to fully understand the multiplayer team. It should give you reassurance Single-Player is getting every ounce of love and then some, we just haven’t unveiled it yet!

Looks great, but I was hoping for more of a full-featured Single Player trailer around 2+ minutes or so considering that there's been so much stuff dedicated to showing off the Multiplayer of this game as of late. A 30 second snippet of the Single Player is better than nothing at all I guess guess....

If you go on ign they have stated that it is a teaser, so be prepared for more

ABizzel1  +   608d ago
You should play it, it's actually really good. Surprised me. I didn't care about the MP either, but that didn't meant I didn't want to try it.

At the bare minimal it shows just how good you are against other GOW players, which is fun in itself.
TotalHitman  +   608d ago
Thanks for the mature comment :)

I really don't like playing multiplayer in games though. I've even stopped trying now. I just don't enjoy repetitiveness.
