the add on content is probably gunna be the challenges.
Cause like the old gow games you have to unlock certain challenges by playing hard mode and god mode and so fourth. so the add on content is on the game you just have to unlock it. i think thats what they mean by that, and the 1080i im not sure about considering the gow 3 demo automatically upscaled to 1080p didnt even have to force it to go 1080p like uncharted 2....i guess that means its native resolution even tho 720p is better than 1080i....... if i have money i might buy this game if not def going to rent it....gow collection got me hooked......

5 mbs?
They could have 10 gbs as far as I'm concerned. Heavy Rain, this, and FFXIII = me doing very poorly on all my finals this semester.

Add on content in the form of a time trial or horde mode (one player as Kratos and the other player as Ares?). Either way it's good to know that they're going to support the game long term...not that I would ever trade this game in.

BuZzz Killington  +   1938d ago
yeah i never thought of that horde mode online
maybe it will have like survival mode like in uncharted 2 online....that be so awesome you and your buddy fighting waves of skeleton dudes then those ogers, and snake lion ram things and what not. and the only way to unlock it is to beat the game on god mode...that would be a decent incentive to buy the game and beat it on god mode.......like the have challenges like that in the original gow just no online add online and your good to go if we demand this maybe threy'll include it or add a patch for it.....start a petition lol.....and add voice chat that be so awesome.....
randomwiz  +   1938d ago
no installs!!

add-on content could mean skins and stuff like that, but it could also mean new challenges.

DLC is an absolute must
for this title. Since it doesn't have MP, something has to be implemented to increase replayability.

This sounds so good. I can't wait for God Of War 3. I just wish they would put the downloadable content on the disc. The Blu-ray should definitely be big enough.

"I just wish they would put the downloadable content on the disc. The Blu-ray should definitely be big enough"

Maybe it isn't ready. Would you rather they delay the game so they can put DLC on the disc? I'm sure they're putting it on hold until everything else is done.

FamilyGuy  +   1938d ago
Some old school plasmas and big screens can only do 1080i so that's good for those people in that situation. I'll be playing in (automatically upscaled) 1080p so I can see every detail that got this game its mature rating.

Strong language as in:

You know, basic Kratos.

Some older HD tv's can't display 1080p nor 720p. The 1080i support means those people don't have to play the game in standard definition.

Dumb Comment
I cant wait for this game either but this is a stupid flamebait comment. Unlike the seemingly broke as hell fanboys on this site I have both consoles and love them equally. Just meat Mass Effect 2 and next ill play Bioshock, then ill move on to God of War and later this year ill get Halo:Reach and GT5. Stop trying to brag about having one console. It just means your a slave to sony or MS because you spend your life defending their product on N4G and get nothing for it.

They had me at contains Intense Violence, Nudity and Strong Sexual Content. Hopefully they have better sex scenes this time. But seeing a couple nice sets of tits is cool. I like it when games that have sexual content actually have nudity. When a game depicts sex and both people are wearing clothes it just seems lame.

@7.1 Totally off topic............
So is it better than Rome on HBO? That show was the sh!t. Spartacus looks too 300ish. Not that its a bad thing, but I really enjoyed Rome cause it was realistic and gritty.

On topic: Can't wait for the chaos to begin....... Cmon March!!!
Rumor  +   1938d ago

that show is badass!! too bad kratos would sponge the crap out of sparticus ;D
Enjoi915111  +   1938d ago
never watched rome. hes not to much like the guy from 300...hes to skinny looking. but its really intense.

of course kratos would smoosh Spartacus...for kratos is a god.

and Spartacus eventually dies in the story lol...
Whoooop  +   1938d ago
Rome was my favorite HBO show after Sopranos and The Wire...

So sad that HBO put an end to it when the 2 year contract they had with BBC ended and BBC couldn't finance the series due to its high budget.
Myze  +   1938d ago
Rome was an amazing series. Spartacus, so far, is not all that good. Sure it has tons of nudity and violence, but at this point it almost seems like that's being used to cover up a lot of its flaws in terms of characters and story.

As for GoW3, I am kind of curious what they mean by "Strong Sexual Content," in a non-pathetic way. ;) The first two games only listed "Sexual Themes."

Who cares about 1080i? I heard it is garbage compared to 720 progressive scan.

KRATOS, awesome. I'm thinking of either buying the GOW collection or Demon's Souls. I have never played any God of War games, so I know I need to catch up before March. But on the other hand, I don't want to put off purchasing Demon's Souls because Atlus made a great game and deserves my money in a timely manner so that they can make a great sequel or successor.
Fishy Fingers  +   1938d ago
Certain old TVs only support 1080i I believe, so for those it's a good thing. But where available, 720p should be taken over 1080i for sure.
execution17  +   1938d ago
you try playing KZ2 in 1080i most people that did say it looked a bit better then it did in 720p

on side not the add on stuff maybe from completing GoW collection?
Enjoi915111  +   1938d ago
dude if you havent played them.....you need to. i never had a ps2 and i was so pissed at sony that my ps3 wasnt bc...but gow was the only ps2 games i wanted to play.....sony heard and answered my prayer with the gow COLLECTION and i forgave sony and now we friends lol

but demon souls is pretty awesome and hard.
OpenGL  +   1938d ago
Some older HDTVs (usually pre-HDMI models) only support 480p and 1080i. The PS3 does not have dedicated hardware like HANA in the Xbox 360 to handle upscaling, so developers must manually add 1080i support if they don't want to alienate some HDTV owners.

But how can interlaced in any way be better than progressive. Killzone 2 looks better interlaced? I gotta try it out some time.

I definitely am going to get the collection, but I will feel like an idiot if I keep putting off Demon's Souls. Why couldn't I be wealthy?
bjornbear  +   1938d ago

and GOW Collection, but neither ship to my country -_- so consider yourself lucky you CAN get either! =(
Traveler  +   1938d ago
My tv is one of those older Sony Trinitron HDTVs that only accept 480p, 720p, and 1080i signals. Killzone 2 definitely looks better set to 720p on my tv. Almost every game looks better in 720p on my tv. Scaling doesn't add in any detail, it can actually make things look fuzzier. I guess it just depends on your tv, so just try it and see which setting looks better.
PS360PCROCKS  +   1938d ago
Uh whoever thinks 1080i looks better is an idiot. Lol 540 lines of resolution does not look more clear than 720
jrm125  +   1938d ago
So many misinformed people
I'm shocked how many people are misinformed on the subject of 1080i support.

The devs aren't giving it 1080i to act like it somehow looks better than 720p. As a few others have said, 1080i support is there for people with older HDTVs that only supports 1080i and 480p. 720p came later. If your TV doesn't support 720p, all PS3 games automatically downscale to 480p. Not cool.

Progressive typically looks better than interlaced...but I doubt anyone here wants to be playing at 480p. For those of you with newer HDTVs, you'll be playing at 720p and seeing it in all it's glory.

1080i and 720p are basically the same
1080i is better for still cameras....720p is good for sports ,such as football because the camera is all over the place....i dont know all the technical details but yeah
LittleBigSackBoy  +   1938d ago
1080i is quite alote worse really. Interlaced has half the lines (pixels?) of progressive. 720p has the full lines on the screen, but 1080i has half the lines. So you only get half of the 1080 really...The screen slices when you use 1080i, because there's blank lines mixed in with the picture.
PS360PCROCKS  +   1938d ago
Um i is interlaced, 1080i will never be better than 720p, and they're not basically the same. 1080i is comparable to 480p while 720p would be more comparable to 1080p. It's 180 less lines of pixels between 1080i/720p. But yes 1080i is used for news casts and shows, movies etc. Football is 720p, probowl was that resolution tonight. I need dish though, I want 1080p dammit. F'ing Comcast.

"Strong language"? I just looked on the back of God of War Collection and it says it too. I dont remember God of War having any swearing... It wouldn't really make sense. o.o "Hey, Kratos! F$CK YOU!" hmmm...

Anyways. Badass cover. Badass DLC info. Badass no-install info. Pretty much everything is badass about it.

Though, i thought it would say "Blades of Chaos" rather then.... deadly double-chained blades. o.O

Most games run at 720p
But do they look as good as UC2 or KZ2? NO you know why?

because of the high res textures from blu ray, Physics and Shader computations from the Cell SPE's that make most PS3 exclusive greater than the rest.

Oh it doesn't run at 30fps, its 60-30 variable framerate you clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

Obviously, most amps switch to the DTS if there is a choice between the two. Here's to hoping the sounds are uncompressed. Sound is the most important aspect to immersion.
