Niiiice! Can't wait to hear more about it!

Loved 3 and Ascension was good too, but I'd love to see a number 4

Abash1323d ago

YES!!! I cant wait to see the epicness of God of War taken to a new level with the PS4's power

breakpad1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

damn.. wasted resources on a lame IP..ok im fine with U4 (although doesnt look much different) im excited for Order and Bloodborn but cmon Sony some more new IPs not lame Kratos again...

bouzebbal1323d ago

Kratos and Deimos ==> DeimoKracy
this PSX is the richest in reveals and puts The Game Awards to shame

GameNameFame1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

Wow. Just wow. I was already excited for these games. Now GOD OF WAR on top?!.

Cant believe they didnt release it in keynote.

They already had these, but wouldve been amazing with God of war on top.

Street fighter 4
The Order
Until Dawn
Drawn to death.
The Forest

fat princess
orc must die
Dungeon Defenders

ShinMaster1323d ago

I heard it was being rebooted.

Kratos means power in greek, and Demos means people.

Therefore Demoskratos means power to the people, or as we currently know Democracy.

Now this news would have made such a big impact at the PS event. But exciting news nonetheless

In the end there will be chaos

Dark111323d ago

More GOW is always a good thing!!

fermcr1323d ago

I would prefer a new IP from Sony Santa Monica.

Testfire1323d ago

Same here, there's no need for another GOW game. Its just a cash grab on the name.

kranker1323d ago

So would I but the quality of SSM games are high so im just happy theyre actually making something.

CaptainObvious8781323d ago

I agree.

I know this new GOW is going to be amazing, but would have preferred something else.

Hopefully they put in some brand new features that really change the game up. If it was open world with RPG elements I would melt.

Gamer19821323d ago

LOL I gotta love when it when gamers put this yet gamers are fine when MS puts out there 8th Halo title and assassins creed is now a 2 game a year title.. Lets not forget COD though right? I be all those who agree on saying I would prefer have bought one of those games recently. #hypocrites. There doing a new IP AND God of War as well.. I think people just like to moan..

Testfire1322d ago

@Gamer1982, I actually feel the same about the games you mention with the exception of Halo, as I was never a fan so...If you want to look at my history and try to find any hypocrisy I challenge you to do that.

At some point devs start to do a disservice to the franchise when it becomes apparent that they're reaching for ideas. Kratos killed ALL THE GODS, he avenged his family, what's there to do? Ascension was a joke and just made me SMH. I was one of the biggest fans of the franchise until Ascension.

I'll still be somewhat interested in the next GOW, but I don't see how they can make it feel fresh. Shiny graphics won't do it.

SmielmaN1323d ago

Agreed. Everything they showed today plus GoW.... Just. Wow. Great birthday party Sony. Lots of stuff for PS gamers.

Blaze9291323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

I don't get it, there were a bunch of comments back when this was rumored actually saying no, no more God of Wars - let that series rest. Some wanted it completely over after that Ascension game.

Now the hype is back? What more could they do with Kratos??? We get it, you are forever screwed. Who else can we play as?

SilentNegotiator1323d ago

1) People got a break from it and now some want more after said break.
2) Not everyone felt the same way.

Dark_Ruler_Hades1322d ago


This is meant as a well meaning and thought inducing post. I am not here to target or flame but simply ask:

Isn't God of War overdone? I mean haven't we seen enough? A story in a hack and slash game can only go so far (see Devil May Cry 4) before it becomes unnecessarily spoiled.

I grant you the capabilities of PS4 could create a gorgeous game with the setting and bloodshed gameplay. Surely a HD collection to PS4 can suffice.

Thank you

Good i though the god of Olympus had abandon us.

showtimefolks1323d ago

You sir have won lol

Classic line bubbles

-Foxtrot1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

I'm glad and dissapointed at the same time

I really wanted them to do something new...maybe Heavenly Sword 2 or a new IP all together

On the other hand if they have two teams then I suppose they could do both.

I wonder if they'll continue with Kratos or if they'll do different mytho like Egyptian or Norse

LOGICWINS1323d ago

They don't have a choice. GOW3 ended on a cliffhanger.

etownone1323d ago


It was an epic trilogy, and epic ending.

Another GOW is just overkill.
Who is he going to go after?

SilentNegotiator1323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

So the earth is destroyed, the gods are gone, and Kratos "might" have lived.
Oh yeah, that story really needed to continue. /s

I was already rooting against Kratos, the world's least self aware character in existence, by the end of GOW3.

showtimefolks1323d ago

They have like 2-3 different teams within Sony Santa monica so don't loose hope

-Foxtrot1323d ago

Oh good...didn't want them to stick to God of War forever.

Sir_Simba1323d ago

Santa monica is quite large

Darkfist1323d ago

"I really wanted them to do something new...maybe Heavenly Sword 2 or a new IP all together "

i dont see you being excited for Fat princess adventures, and Wattam(you know that new ip)

SilentNegotiator1323d ago

No one knows what Wattam is (other than the developer - which doesjn't matter if we don't even know the genre) and no one asked for the odd change to Fat Princess.

Solid_Penguin-641323d ago (Edited 1323d ago )

They could be doing both Kratos and a new mythology. At the end of GOW3 (spoiler) where Kratos impales himself with the Blade of Olympus and then disappears with a blood trail leading to the cliff edge (making you think he fell over), it could have opened a portal (it is a magical blade just roll with it lol) at the cliff edge in which Kratos dragged himself over to. Once through Kratos came out into Asgard, Heimdall then sees him and makes fun of his skirt and the new trilogy begins...
