Rumor: PS4 Version of God of War Ascension Incoming

It may not be a whole new God of War title, but according to industry insider Shinobi602, who is normally very accurate with what his sources tell him about upcoming games, God of War Ascension is making a move to the next generation with a PlayStation 4 Edition.

Games, bring on the games! GOW for PS4 Cool!

@Naruto

I'm just joking, GOW ancension is good but a PS4 is unnecessary I agree on that Naruto (Sasuke tone)

XiNarutoUzumaki1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

I hope this is a lie Sasuke. This is really unnecessary. Not to mention this was the worst entry in the God of War series. It was still an enjoyable game, and I loved it. But, this doesn't need a PS4 port...

iamnsuperman1203d ago

I can see it happening but I don't think it will be a big announcement. I can see Sony, at E3, coming out and saying these games will be ported to the PS4 (their most recent games; especially the ones with sequels in the works)

xHeavYx1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

If there was any GOW remake I'd like to see on PS4 it would be GOW3. I agree with the people above though, an Ascension remake is not necessary

joab7771203d ago

Unless they add another act, maybe something really cool. I will take it as long as it is a holdover.

Its one remake I never played so I cant hate it.

gaffyh1203d ago

Ascension is good, but it is an unnecessary GOW game imo, and this news would perhaps be one of the most pointless announcements ever, because it wasn't critically acclaimed when it came out.

guitarded771203d ago

The "worst entry" in the GoW series is still better than most games out there. Ascension was pretty damn good IMO. Yeah, maybe not GoW2 good, but anyone who thinks it sucks is a moron.

As for PS3 games on PS4, it's a good way for devs to get their feet wet with the tech, while working on a new game. I don't necessarily think Ascension demands a PS4 upgrade since PS Now can get the game to PS4 without all the re-devving.

Sevir1203d ago

Please can we let Kratos sleep, We really DONT need another one for about 6 years, Ascension wasn't all that, and the franchise is overstating its welcome... Genre fatigue is in with this IP. I'd love a New IP from the Core Team at SSM. This just got me irritated.

I_am_Batman1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

It was the worst quality wise at release as it had some bugs (like the audio issues) as opposed to the other entries in the series which were really polished games. After those issues got patched it's pretty much on par with the other games imo. I really liked the new combat system and the puzzles were the best in the franchise imo. A major downside for me was the final boss fight. It was the second worst final boss fight in the series after GoS for me personally.

Overall I really enjoyed the game but I wouldn't buy it again as I already own it for PS3. I'd much rather see a new GoW developed from the ground up for PS4.

morganfell1203d ago

Unnecessary? Think about all the people that just found their way to PlaySation and would like to play a GOW game on their PS4. In addition the MP is a blast. So while it may not be necessary for you, a blanket statement that it is not needed...is not needed.

PLASTICA-MAN1203d ago

Why choose the worst game in the enite series for a remake on PS4 instead of a new revolutionary game? Very Stupid.

DragonKnight1202d ago

"I'm all for it, it's great for all the people who didn't get a chance to play it on PS3.. blah blah blah more complacency."

Of course this B.S. is true. This gen is turning out to be the remake gen of games that aren't even more than a gen old. I mean who cares about coming up with new ideas for games when you can let indies coast you along between HD touch ups. They aren't even remasters for goodness sake. The games are already in frickin' HD.

Omegasyde1202d ago

This was the only god of war game I did not finish.
If it came out BEFORE God of war 3, it would of been judged as harshly.

Santa Monica should of made a heavenly sword 2 sequel instead with my favorite red head.

DragonKnight1202d ago

Too late to edit my comment. Complacency was not the word I wanted to use.

N4Flamers1202d ago

I agree with heavy. Their time would be better served remaking GOW3. It was a way better game without lackluster multi-player. I wouldnt get it unless they made some serious upgrades though. I didn't buy a ps4 to rebuy the same games I own.
This tactic doesn't even give new people incentive to buy a ps4 because they can get a ps3 and buy these games cheaper.
I'd like to see new games or if you're going to rehash give a price reduction, or some new content.

guitarded771202d ago

Can we all settle down with the "people who didn't get to play it last gen" argument?

PS Now will be the vehicle for playing last gen games on this gen, so the remakes should be saved for the best of the best like The Last of Us and others.

hellzsupernova1202d ago

Off topic do you guys know each other? lol

On topic this is the worst GOW please leave it be. Make a enw one we all know you are working on it after cancelling Stigs game

CarlosX3601202d ago

I thought GOW: Ascension was good, not bad. Just not, ya know... GOW3-caliber.

MazzingerZ1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

I haven't played it so I'm happy if this happens as, it's in my must-play list on PS3 before moving on later this year to PS4

ZodTheRipper1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

"I can see Sony, at E3, coming out and saying these games will be ported to the PS4"

This would actually be pretty poor from Sony. Please take note Yoshida, we don't want this. Next gen is about next gen, not last gen. TLOU is fine because it's the best game ever made, even Journey would be fine ...but don't port over mediocre games just to have them. GoW3 would be more acceptable than this (even though I enjoyed Ascension for a few weeks online, the MP was much better than the SP)

morganfell1202d ago

There are only two GOW titles that with minor asset work would accent the graphical prowess of the PS4. GOW3 and GOWA. Since many players on the PS4 will be playing their first GOW title, providing the GOW3 up front as their first experience would do the most damage to the secrets and surprises of the first two titles as well as the RAD games.

In addition, GOWA required far less coding to get it up and running on the PS4 versus the PS2 or PSP games despite their having been brought to the PS3.

And a new gen GOW1 would have required an entire dev to completely build the game from the ground up. GOWA does not.

GOWA also contains MP. From most perspectives it was simply the smartest move to make.

If this is remotely true, I hope it's not...

Then why Ascension, when GOW III is way better? ;/

ginsunuva1203d ago

Because it sold most poorly out of all the GoW games.

Destrania1203d ago

Good God I would love to see GoW 3 remastered for PS4. That game still blows me away.

Salooh1202d ago

Didn't buy it so i wouldn't mind if it come in summer where there are few games. However , it's better if we get a real next gen god of war game. :)

Magicite1203d ago

Hope its not true, I just bought it for my PS3..

Palitera1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

Enjoy it. It might be "the worst" God of War, but it is still an awesome game. The controls and the combat system are marvelous!

OrangePowerz1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

I can see the point for ME, TR, TLoU and similar games for people who didn't play those franchises before or who switched to the PS4 over. GoW:A makes a bit less sense since it is a game in the middle of the series.

I_am_Batman1203d ago

Well chronologically it's right in the beginning of the series but I still agree with you. If anything they should port the whole franchise. I don't mind them doing these remakes as it doesn't require a lot of man-power/time in comparison to developing a new game from the ground up even though I wouldn't buy them on PS4 when I already own the PS3 copy unless I can get it really cheap.

showtimefolks1203d ago

i would play the whole GOW collection again if released on ps4

dale_denton1203d ago

God of War 3 and Ascension Definitive versions on PS4 for $60 i'd buy it.

Jazz41081203d ago

Yawn, this series needs put away for a few years. New ip's would really be appreciated by both micro and sony this e3.

killzone6191202d ago

They need to fix the multiplayer!

it was awesome at the start but now its a unbalanced mess.

xtremeimport1202d ago

Way too many remakes coming out.

Yes ps4/xb1 gamers want games to play, but spend the time and resources on new games.
