The back cover of God of War III was revealed by GameStop. New details include Add-On Content, 5MB Required Hard Drive Space, 1080i support, Mature rating (Intense Violence, Nudity and Strong Sexual Content), "Making Of" Documentaries and more.
add-on content eh??? interesting....
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......
This seems highy like a fake from NeoGaf.
It's not fake http://www.gamestop.com/com...
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.
Ok, thanks, i mean, you cant let your guard down when it comes to NeoGaf, they are the masters of fake in the game industry. :I
im sry i kno its interlaced but when my tv plays in 720p the font is huge. and some of the edge of my screen gets cut off
This Game WILL BE EPIC GOW3 IS BEAST!!!
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.....
no installs!! add-on content could mean skins and stuff like that, but it could also mean new challenges.
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.
This is will be the first game I pick up at midnight in years.
haha, when I first saw strong language, I just imagined Kratos throwing out the f-bomb every time he got angry
strong sexual content caught my eye.
"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.
strong language...what? anyways. this game will be freakin insane
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: "I will rip your heart out and feed it to this Hydra here that I keep as a pet, then I'll smear the walls of olympus with the blood of your children and spit at your weakness" "fool" You know, basic Kratos.
Wow, that's pretty impressive coming from the best looking game for 2010 thus far. Impressive indeed.
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.
is the number one article really the back of a game box???
The end of the 360: March 16th.
In the end there will be only chaos... from so many 360s self-destructing in jealousy.
about MGS4, Killzone 2, Uncharted 2 and LBP?
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.
Kratos surpasses Chuck Norris in badassery.
if norris can do this http://comixed.com/2010/01/... then i dont even wanna know what kratos can do..
....Gotta love the Norris facts -
"Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because Chuck Norris only recognizes the element of surprise"
"Kratos killed the guy that invented the word suprise."
only chaos in March 16th :)
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.
was only a rumour? oh boy i will miss kratos after this epic game.
so the single player epicness of just you against the gods is still un harmed...i hope they do it......
Hmm, nice to see no installation is required. I also wonder what the add-on content is going to be, probably challenge maps.
I will be playing this day 1
fake i smlle
Learn to spell. Fake? Yes it's a dummy box, just like you.
"Intense Violence, Nudity and Strong Sexual Content" What more could you ask for...
if you got netflix my friend watch the new starz series SPARTACUS! youll love it
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!!!
@enjoi that show is badass!! too bad kratos would sponge the crap out of sparticus ;D
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...
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.
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."
Sparticus is basically 300 the tv show, Rome is 20x better
must have game.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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?
and GOW Collection, but neither ship to my country -_- so consider yourself lucky you CAN get either! =(
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.
Uh whoever thinks 1080i looks better is an idiot. Lol 540 lines of resolution does not look more clear than 720
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.
THE WAY I LIKE IT. off topic kinda....if you like blood violence action tits and some side puss.....and you have NETFLIX....please go watch SPARTACUS the new Starz series....AWESOME!!!!!
Yeah Fvck the game companies catering to children to get more sales. I want adult games, fvck the kids.
Nice, this game is gonna be sick.
Yo I bought the Ultimate Edition already, so I'm all set.
me TOOO im gonna hide my *stash* in Pandora's box.....and who ever opens it besides me hopefully gets their eyes burned out rofl.
I cant wait to unbox my Ultimate Edition. I really REALLY enjoyed my play through of the GOW1&2 HD collection. I'm currently working my way through GOW;CoO which is also awsome. I dunno how in the hell I missed these game on PS2. Oh wait... now I remember! Too busy gettin as much pu$Sy as I could get XP
PS3 chaos is imminent, Spartans get your GoW collection and start fine tuning your skills :)
AGAIN! XD GAF has a 500 - Internal Server Error. Fans are clammering!
the angry GoW is back to Olympus to claim what is rightfully his!... the head of ZEUS and destruction of Olympus
and in the end, there will only be... Yall MF'erz know the rest!!!
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
