God of War 3 & God of War: Ascension “Could be Done” on the PS4, Says Sony Santa Monica

Now that God of War: Ascension is shipped and on store shelves, with only the task of DLC and multiplayer upkeep keeping them on the game, Sony Santa Monica is looking ahead to the PlayStation 4 and what they can do with it. - PSLS (God of War 3, God of War: Ascension, PS3, PS4)

I'm afraid to see what SSM will do with the PS4. I'm not sure they'll be allowed to go as far as they want to this time due to the extremely realistic detail in muscle tearing the PS4 will put out.
Dlacy13g  +   711d ago
Agreed... of course it can, and they will happily sell it to you again. Just like MS and their Halo games. And Nintendo with the HD zelda games coming for WiiU. If the feel their is real opportunity to sell more and the cost analysis makes sense they will most likely do it.

I'd prefer to have a brand new God of War on PS4.
Relientk77  +   711d ago
This I agree with
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   711d ago
Nah.Time to let it rest.GoW 3 should of ended it.Hell, it DID end it.Story was wrapped up perfectly.

GoW:A was just a needless prequel.Time to see Santa monica branch out and try something else, in a different genre maybe.RPG would be nice..
Relientk77  +   711d ago
I would love to see them try a new genre, RPG would be awesome

Where did Kratos' body go at the end of GOW3? His body disappeared.

I say reboot with a new female character, or new action IP.

Dude... an RPG made by SSM? That would be amazing. That's one genre that Sony is seriously lacking when it comes to 1st party games. They really need both a good WRPG and JRPG franchise.
ZodTheRipper  +   711d ago
They really need to try out something new at this point. Like Naughty Dog with The Last Of Us - and we all know how that turned out. As it seems I might even like it more than Uncharted.

GOW:Ascension was just a stopgap to hold you over while they worked on the next real GOW game for PS4.This would easily explain why its the weakest entry in the series, not as much was put into it as was put into the others.

New God of War on ps4 is instant buy for me. Im afraid what they can do with it, having Cernys machine on thier side.
ABizzel1  +   710d ago
I prefer a brand new mythology for the PS4 God of War.
Foolsjoker  +   711d ago
No, I'd say do a new GOW, not sure I want more GOW remakes.
Shacojin  +   711d ago
Prefer a new IP from Santa Monica... but if they have to continue the franchise... make it open world Fallout/GTA style with GoW mechanics
Reborn  +   711d ago
I'd be a bit stunned if it couldn't. Wouldn't it mean a step backwards?

Either way, looking forward to seeing what Santa Monica do next gen.
Dan_scruggs  +   711d ago
Now I know the PS4 will win the next generation. Here is the proof. It can play PS3 games. Not because it's backwards compatible or anything convenient like that. Because you can indeed take a PS3 game and remake it to work on the PS4. The future is bright indeed.

No, he is being sarcastic.

Adding "s/" after you've made a sarcastic comment defeats the whole porpuse of being sarcastic.
BlaqMagiq24  +   711d ago
I love GOW but let the series ending be ambiguous. Some of the best games/series end better that way. Perfect example are the Team Ico games. (ICO/SOTC)

"It’s definitely got its share of interesting challenges – filling up that much memory from disk takes some time. From a technical standpoint, the DDR5 part is perhaps more interesting to me. But the 8GB part makes me pretty happy, too, since I think it makes a powerful 'PR statement'."

Bathyj  +   711d ago
I'd rather see them do Heavenly Sword 2.
Sitdown  +   711d ago
I completely agree..... not only one of my favorite ps3 games, but game in general.
brewin  +   711d ago
Its funny to me that people call out Nintendo and MS for their abuse of franchises, yet Sony does the same exact thing and nobody complains. I love me some God of War, but how many releases and re-releases of God of War games have there been in this gen alone? It seems like every other month they were releasing an HD GoW remake or a bundle of the remakes plus the PSP HD remakes with part 3 thrown in, etc, etc.

I think they have pretty much done everything they can with Kratos. If theyre going to continue the series they need to do it by expanding the universe and trying something different. They are some of my all time favorite games, but I dont want to see Sony diminish the value of the series by trying to milk it too much. Just let it be , forever resting in all its greatness and glory!

I still do enjoy Mario games, but I cant see Sony turning to Kart racing, sports, or party game territory with Kratos in tow. Thats how Nintendo is able to continue exploiting mario without wearing him out.
dantesparda  +   711d ago
Almost everybody above you is saying they rather have a new ip, and nobody is as bad at that as Nintendo
b_one  +   710d ago
no ps2 or psp, for me those remasters was superb chance to play those games.
Chaos_Raiden  +   711d ago
Would love to see Santa Monica to develop an RPG game with Greek setting.
ZodTheRipper  +   711d ago
Sparta vs. Troj Action RPG with advanced GoW gameplay. Open world, player chooses one side, can walk around Sparta/Troj, interact with NPC's, buy new equipment, participate in gladiator events, occupy outposts of the opposite faction, take side quests like hunting to help citizens or defeat mythological creatures. Even as a big GoW fan I'd like them to do something like this rather than a new GoW.
DivineAssault  +   711d ago
If they do, its going to be a VERY long time from now i think.. I do see it happening though.. An ultimate GOW saga containing a new GOW 4, & full 1080p 60FPS GOW 3, Ascension, 2, 1, & the PSP versions.. Hell, put the all 4 origin games on vita.. That would be fun too
Agent_hitman  +   711d ago
I want GOW3 remake for PS4

Strange title. Isn't it kind of obvious?

Would have been more interesting if it read that they could have been done on PS2 or something to that effect.
