God of War III Remastered is coming in stunning detail to your PS4, but if you're looking to get into the God of War franchise, there may be better options.
Not for me since I've played and beaten it already, I'll wait for it to drop to about $10 or $15. Same goes of Microsoft's GOW. If its just a remaster of the 1st game Im not spending over $10 for a prettier version of a 9 year old game. Wish both companies would have remastered the 1st 3 games. Just more bang for our buck.
Not for me either played GOW III wish they would have thrown Ascenscion along with GOW III would have made sense to purchase for me since I never played it.
I have the remasters on my ps3 and it came with two god of war games for $40 when it came out. i'm not sure if this is worth $40 but i already played it. maybe for someone who never got to play it but i would wait. the remastered tlou price dropped rather quickly.
Well considering Sony already had the GoW games redone for PS3... there is no point in them remastering the remasters for PS4. Had this been #3 and Ascension in one package then yeah it would be worth it. The best thing to happen to remasters is when they come as a bundle. Like the Jak collection or Ratchet collection as examples.
it may not be worth it for those that played it already but for the ones that has never played god of war 3 it is way worth paying the money for such a great game remember a decent amount of gamers on ps4 came from wii or 360 im sure they will like to play it. but I to have played and beaten it and will wait for a price drop
1st 3 were already remastered...
Yeah I'm hoping Gears is a triple pack, even Gears 3 has a few years under it's belt. Even still I'd wait for a deal.. which isn't a dig on it's quality but rather a paradigm shift in my game purchasing in recent months. I've found staggering my purchasing can result in some pretty good discounts, even waiting just a few weeks can save $10-$20 on a new release.
Nope , but i dont see the issue there . It's a remaster of an already older game , anyone can just wait if they dont want to pay a premium on those . Publisher wins out either way
If you're new to the series then yes. As someone who already played it on PS3 though? No.
If you're new to the series, you want to start on the first. It looked amazing on ps3, I really can't find a need for this remaster!
GOW3 was the first GOW native to PS3. Back then it aimed at new comers, even though PS2 basically ruled that gen. GOW3 does enough story telling to catch you up to speed. If no one has ever played a GOW, then 3 is the perfect showcase for it. It also helps that you get a PSNow code for GOW1&2 if you truly think you need the full experience. The game is an overall masterpiece, and is perfect to get people on board. If Sony is smart, GOW 4 will have a trailer at E3 in order to spark the itch to buy GOW3 Remaster.
Actually I think that 1 and 2 had the far better story. 3 was pretty mediocre storywise up to even nonsensical, but graphics, gameplay and action were awesome, of course. Still, 2 remains my favorite. I even think Ghost of Sparta had a much better story than 3.
Not everyone would want to play some old PS2 games though, they didn't age very well. Besides even if they did play them in order, they would have the risk of getting bored of the series by the time they get there. It's best to play GOW3 and if you are itching for more GOW then you can play the GOW1 and 2 rental on PS Now.
for me then yes because i was xbox 360 only last gen
Nope. Oh, and stop with the remasters. You know you just re-printing what was ALREADY created. These games are made future proof. Its been well documented. Thats why there is no new content. They make hi-def versions then they trickle it down to fit into older specs. Dont believe the hype and keep your money nice and tight in your wallet. These companies will eventually get the message and guess what? HOORAY! they'll make some real new IP's. What a concept.
FF12 remaster first, then no more remasters. Damn, Mass Effect too. And Uncharted. Definitely those too, then for sure no more remasters. I'm not helping, am I?
Ha ha bubble up
I need that Uncharted Remaster
You worry about your wallet, and I'll worry about mine, mmkay?
Exactly. I platinumed GOW3 and am still picking up the PS4 version. Epic titles are not bound by restriction to a single generation.
Why would they stop making remasters? Console gamers love them & they are selling. Capcom is gonna make more now! $$$ I am sure publishers are already thinking about what remasters will launch with ps5! Because they want money! Backwards compatibility is dead on console or you can rent them on ps Now. I am surprised EA and Ubi are not getting piece of that pie.
If you havent played the game, it could be but for those who have, not really
Jepp, got more questions?
Yes. Who will be the next TNA champion after Kurt Angle? And will Alex return in Street Fighter V?
Mr.Anderson. And Alex will return! Out of bubbles..byeeeee.
If you've never played it before, yep. If not, then no unless you're a huge GOW fanatic.
YES, IT IS! God of War 3 is an AMAZINGly well done game, and if you haven't had the chance to play it on it's original console, you should DEFINITELY check it out :D
Giving 90 days of access to GoW1&2 on PS Now reminds me of messed up Sony is for not allowing PS1 and PS2 Classics to be playable on PS4
If you already played GOW3, then NO, the remaster is not worth $40. If you really really want it, might as well wait and purchase it when it's dirt cheap. ... but I'm sure there are a lot of people out there with money to spare, don't mind purchasing the same game over and over again at full price. That's why we will get remasters until the end of this gen... and next gen will happen the same thing.
Alone, no. If they were remastering the Saga for 40 then yes.
No, not a good deal at all. All three for 40..great deal. God of War III was the weakest in the series, especially after the kick @ss part II which is one of the best action games ever.
GOW3 is arguably the best one in the series, actually. i think that the general consensus is that ascension was the weakest one in the series. in my opinon, GOW3 had one of the most memorable boss fights of all last generation with this: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Oh well Ascension is a given. I really don't consider that game a part of the original series (trilogy). I actually don't remember anything memorable about GoW3 except Kratos suddenly catching feelings all of a sudden. The last battle against Zeus in part II was one of the best fights in the whole series.
What I always really hated about the story in III... after killing a gazillion gods, at some point he should have realized, that he doesn't need Pandorras Box for the inherent 'power to kill a god'. Then the labyrinth was pretty unimpressive as a setting and felt like way stretched. The feelings-thingy... yeah strange. Graphics and boss-fights, as I wrote above, were pretty awesome, but II remains the best for me, closely followed by I and Ghost of Sparta. Ascension story wasn't any good but at least it made sense. I didn't like that they changed the fighting system though. Maybe they show a teaser for GoW IV at E3...
You fight Posidon, Hades, Hercules, and Zues all in one game, but its the weakest. Yeah, you know what your talking about! /s
You fight Theseus, Kraken, Zeus and the sisters of Fate in part II...your point? /e
...not really. You don't know to what degree they have overhauled this game. to say its "not a good deal". You barely know what is being offered in terms of over all quality and to what degree. The first batch of GOW games can be had in HD in 60fps on PS3 currently. I don't think bringing them to PS4 adds much more quality as the engine can only go so far. I'm fine with it just being GOW III as we don't know just how big the overhaul is graphically. GOW III then Ascension later on is a good move. Hell, all 3 ie GOW 1-3 isn't really a good deal on PS4. As you can get the whole series on PS3 in HD for what I feel is a BETTER deal for the older games, as again....putting GOW1-2 on PS4 won't just make it look NEXT GEN, its already been put on PS3 in HD in 60fps and it won't just yield this HUGE difference just like FFX from PS3 to PS4 didn't have this HUGE next gen difference. The difference is really, really small. Of course God Of War III and Ascension would be a good deal, but we again don't know how much it took to get GOD III Looking the way it looks on PS4, could have cost them a bit more then normal and they must charge accordingly. I feel $40 is a good price for a port from last gen that has been enhanced, upgraded etc.
'You don't know to what degree they have overhauled this game. to say its "not a good deal"." It doesn't matter if the game was in 4k with hyper photo realistic backgrounds. The gameplay is the same, the levels are the same, there is nothing added, no weapons or levels. It's nothing more than a visual upgrade to a game that already looked good. If they could throw in the trilogy for PS4 for 40 dollars that would be a good deal, not matter if the first 2 were already on PS3. I'm sure people would like the entire collection on one disk for their new system. Also (IMO) GoWIII was the weakest in the series so a visual upgrade only is definitely not a good deal.
No single old game no matter how good it is is worth $40. Especially a game part of a Trilogy. Do all or nothing. If they expect that to be a good deal
God of War III is a stunning game, but 40 dlls for a HD facelift and 60 fps I think is steep price tag. 29.99 imo is the max price can go. I'm pretty sure the game will have tons of sale tags as low 15.99 in the following weeks of its releases.
Heck no. Been there played that.
Heck NO!!! Halo MCC just spoiled us all with how OLD games should be packaged in a HD collectuon. $20, maybe, but $40 is Highway robbery by Sony. END of story.
Please don't use Halo MCC as the golden standard. Otherwise every remaster collection with online will be broken for the first 2 months.
Hey, at least it has online and is working great now. Hope GOW3 online works better at launch..oh wait! ;)
Did it really spoil us when we've been getting HD collections packed with three games for a long time now? Heck HOW Saga had five games before the MCC...
Agreed! Im pretty sure I bought these before way before MCC was around. God Of War saga Killzone Trilogy Infamous Collection Resistance Trilogy Jak and Daxter Trilogy Ratchet & Clank Trilogy Sly Collection Shadow of the Colossus/Ico Bundle Journey/Flower/Flow Collection Mass Effect Trilogy Metal Gear Collection
Why couldn't they bring GoW 1 and 2 to PS4? Seriously, there are a lot of new Sony adopters and I doubt they played the previous entries. I'll buy this when it's $20 but nothing more.
That's what I thought these remasters where aimed out, then this was announced. Keeping in mind, lots of ps4 owners are new to Sony consoles, I have to question the reasoning. Same goes to Gears, if it's not more than meets the eye!
GoW 1 and 2 are currently on PSNow. Sony does not want to take away potential rental sales of that service by offering a retail version of those HD re-mastered classics. But Sony really should have done just that especially with all the new PS4 adopters instead of this obvious cash grab.
GoW I & II already had really bad upscaled video-sequences in the PS3 edition. With the jump to PS4 they really couldn't afford to upscale again, so they would have to recreate them and that would be serious work... not such an easy cash-grab after all, so they don't do it... I certainly would love an 'all-GoW-parts in real 1080p 60fps'-collection but I don't see it happening.
...not really. With PS2 and PS3 both having many GOW games, it makes no sense to just jump on making collections now that exist already on PS3. On top of that, who is to say they won't? LOL! This is not the ONLY game will we likely see from GOW that gets ported, trust me. Its fine to buy this later on for a lessor price too. Gamers not playing the previous entries isn't really Sony's problem and again...who is to say they are done making collections? We don't know just how much it took to do GOW III on PS4, 1 and 2 on PS4 won't just look that amazing or even take much work to do as look at the PS3 versions. I would legit just get the collection PS3 as even if it comes out for PS4....your not missing much. FFX on PS3 to PS4 isn't a WORLD of difference lol. My advice to those that didn't play those games, invest in a PS3 used. To be new to "Sony" is to be really, really young.... like 360 was your first system young. Like some PS2 titles, I don't think all PS3 games will be ported and I don't think many might want the PS Now option, so I would get a used PS3 and buy some used titles for cheap now before they go up in price do to being much rare as time goes on. and fyi I believe most early adopters are established PS gamers, doesn't mean the own or played GOW as many need to get.....no game last en just did 160 million units. No system period just had a game that had a 100% attachment lol. So even being a "sony gamer" doesn't mean you played those games last gen. A port or collection will likely be done down the line. I've heard nothing about them ONLY making GOW III...I think many on here who keep saying what Sony "should" have done....seem to be jumping the gun a bit and not factoring that those collections didn't just release the first year of PS3 being available. Not sure why the same would happen to PS4.
If you haven't played it yet then yes! If you have then no, If you wanna get it without paying so much, then wait for a price drop..
Haha! That's funny 😂 you had me going there for a second. I thought you said that game was $40!
I'll buy it never played any of them
Remasters are great. The real question is does it gives us current gen experience to some degree.
Are you serious?LMAO
There's nothing funny about that. Truth is, upscale-ed graphics/higher frame rate only in a game just doesn't cut it for me. Not to mention, There aren't enough current gen games out to satisfy my gamers hunger. Personally, I think Current gen games should be the primary focus while the others(remasters/indies) should fall in to the secondary category.
Aside from graphical fidelity what's so different about current gen games and last gen games? Is there any game that gameplay, physics and A.I. wise couldn't be done on last gen consoles? There are already fantastic games this generation like Bloodborne, Bayonetta 2 or Super Mario 3D World but I'm still waiting for a game that truly defines the 8th generation of consoles.
Aside from graphical fidelity what's so different about current gen games and last gen games? Everything. Current gen games has way Better lighting & textures, bigger levels, better audio than most next gen games. As for game play, that has yet to be determined by anyone because it too early, maybe in 2 years we can revisit your question when devs leave old game engine behind. Why wouldn't not be better? It would be pointless to own a current hardware if it wasn't any better than last gen hardware. Besides, The games you mentioned on your post aren't on one gaming console.
I had to post again because I made a few errors. I missed your last commit. I too am still waiting for a game that truly defines the 8th generation of consoles. Hopefully the 3rd wave of games will be exactly what we want. E3 can come soon enough.
No. Still have the game for PS3 so I'll wait for a price drop or rent it if I want to play it again on PS4.
No it isn't worth it. You can buy the entire trilogy for less than half the price of this remaster. Why are people even asking this question? This isn't even debatable.
It's simple.. if you've yet to play it... it's worth it... if yover already lplayed it... then not worth it.
ehh,i think 30 would have been perfect price.. but for someone who hasnt played it i think 40 is decent.
Of course it is, lots of people bought ps4 that never had ps3 so this is their chance. GTA 5 was the one that made no sense and yet it sold millions again and journalists still drool over it
LOL Nope 20$ and theyre pushing it...
No, and that goes for every remaster of a single game.
