As a fan of God of War series, I would love to play these two best PSP games on my PS3. I am sure everyone else does too.

you should get it at least quick before the psp2 comes out because you missed out on some great games like MGS and GoW
RankFTW  +   1658d ago
I have these both on PSP and they are great games, would welcome a chance to play them on my PS3 with trophies.
MisterAV  +   1658d ago
they're good but not as good. GoW 1,2,3 are much better. Few puzzles, shorter, small environment,...
Buying a psp just for those two is...

This July? IDk that just sounds way to soon of a release if you ask me. If this was true then wouldn't you expect a release further down?

if this is true then are we expecting it to be in HD but look the same or a full remake with GOW3 graphics and such?

I think this would be more plausible if it was for NGP considering it would be a great launch title. Not sure about a PS3 port though but that be nice especially if it has trophies.

I loved Cains of Olympus, but I have yet to play Ghost of Sparta, so this would be perfect.
HolyOrangeCows  +   1658d ago
I hope it's updated with GOW console controls.

I already played both on the PSP. Ghost Of Sparta with Kratos Brother was especially good.

I am sold day1 ,.. though I doubt they have saved so much of high resolution data and assets(textures,models) as they had with gow1,2,.. but who knows,,.. damn GOW1,2 collection games look so incredible,..(they make fmv cut-scenes look like shit,.. that is how good GOW1 and2 look on PS3)

I would probably buy them both regardless,..

Redempteur  +   1658d ago
well if tey have the asset they can rework the textures and remake the cutscènes for 1080p .
this will be very nice , the psp stick really diminished my enjoyment of chain of olympus ...
Blaze929  +   1658d ago
Chains of Olympus was nothing special to be honest. I never finished Ghost of Sparta though
miyamoto  +   1657d ago
this is awesome! more HD collections from PS, PS2, PSP, Sega Dreamcast, etc. please
TardcoreGamer  +   1657d ago
heres hoping this rumor proves to be true, man!! Don't have a psp and I'm sure many people who otherwise aren't the portable type of gamer(me included) will be absolutely stoked to here this news. Next I hope for MGS:PW PS3 hd port...
flankhim  +   1657d ago
We also need socom hd really bad!
showtimefolks  +   1657d ago
maybe i am wrong
but sony sees the potential for some psp games and i would not be surprised if more psp AAA games came out on ps3.

resistance retribution
mgs:peace walker(ps and also the other mgs game)

but i will get this GOW collection for sure.

any new on whether this is psn only or disk based too?

hopefully kojima will announce something about mgs:pw on ps3 and sony announce that all 4 games from ps2 jak series in hd 3 games story wise 4th being the combat racing)
PirateThom  +   1658d ago
If that's true, I would enjoy it because I love the series but, for some reason, never played the Portable Games.
NukaCola  +   1658d ago
Chains of Olympus was great, but short. I haven't played Ghost of Sparta yet. I would scoop this up if it came to PSN.
RankFTW  +   1658d ago
Ghost of Sparta is 10x better than Chains of Olympus, so yeah it's awesome heh.
InLaLaLand  +   1657d ago
Story wise Ghost of Sparta is better, I was addicted to Chains of Olympus more than Ghost of Sparta. Chains of Olympus is shorter than Ghost of Sparta.
graciousd  +   1658d ago
You should man. Both GoW:CoO and GoW:GoS have great story telling and gameplay.
DigitalAnalog  +   1657d ago
You'd be surprised playing the PSP version.
It's just as short as the CoH, but man, the set pieces are quite unbelievable for a PSP title.

Ive played GOW : Chains of Olympus, did buy Ghost of Sparta too but havent got around to playing it yet. As a fan of the series, Id also love to see these come to PS3...
Raven_Nomad  +   1658d ago
If this is true, I think no PS3 fanboy can ever call another series milked ever again.
Zydake  +   1658d ago
RankFTW  +   1658d ago
They can milk God of War forever in my eyes.
cyclonus007  +   1658d ago
It's not the number of games that milks a series, it's the time between them. Three Guitar Heros in one year is milking a series. A CoD and Halo every year is milking a series. As much as I hate to say it, even Assassins Creed is being milked.
godslayer429  +   1657d ago
i hope you choke on a ball of misery and anguish
morganfell  +   1657d ago
Since when is porting the same game to another platform milking? You fail to grasp the definition or the intricate implications of the term "milking".

And by deduction, you would allow non-PS3 fans to term other series milked as if there is some sort of superiority allotted to those that have never had games ported to their favored platform.


How does not being a part of something allot you the sole right to label? By the same bent logic only peaceniks know about war and only virgins know what makes a partner good in bed.
Fez  +   1657d ago
It's a great thing for gamers... cos I haven't played these games, or the splinter cell trilogy, so for me they're great. But... they are definitely milking the franchises..as in getting as much money out of them for the least amount of effort.

Smart business.

Killzone3___  +   1657d ago
no , milking means making the same game with only few things changed .. assassin creed is not milking because it have alots of improvment , but cod - halo are milked..

i would say god of war milked if it didn't have new things , if you played it you will understand , the gameplay doesn't have alots of new things but the story is amazing !! the game is soooo brutel , big , hard and hard , but not hard for me :P ..

edit @ raven: i like gears,halo, and call of duty and i think i would consider myself a ps3 FAN not fanboy. i have a 360 also but prefer my ps3.

"Stop crying" got it! I am going to use that line when all the PS3 fanboys complain about COD and talk about how milked Gears and Halo is....

Thanks for the tip!
MisterAV  +   1658d ago
COD is for both console, gears is not milked but halo is a bit milked, many games and spinoff on only two consoles...
InLaLaLand  +   1657d ago
I don't think Gears is milked. The game that is milked is Mario, Street Fighter and maybe Yakuza/Ryu ga Gotoku.

Finally some great news regarding my PS3, I will remove some dust from it now
lastdual  +   1658d ago
I really hope this is true, and moreover that we get a disk release and not just over PSN.

Honestly, more portable games should get the HD-remastered treatment (Peace Walker, anyone?).
Raendom  +   1658d ago
Hell yeah Peace Walker but maybe with PSN features too. Motherbase trading and co-op!
ZombieAssassin  +   1658d ago
Peace Walker and FF Crisis Core would prolly sell more over PSN than they did on the PSP (due to piracy), I know i'd buy them both day 1 as CC is THE reason I bought a PSP and is prolly one of the best HandHeld games ever made.
BLAKHOODe  +   1658d ago
I have Ghost Of Sparta, but haven't completed it yet. I'd definitely pick these up on disc for cheap, but it'd make more sense for them to be released on the PSN.
Raendom  +   1658d ago
I think they'd look pretty awesome. Chains of olympus had some of the best background art I've seen in any game.
GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME  +   1658d ago
shows you how console quality psp games are.

this sounds pretty fanboy...y, but...

i don't even know why people suggest that ds games can compete. their not bad, but they stink in comparison with the psp.

i should know whist having both, i only picked up the ds...well...i would make an attempt to get into spirit tracks which is good, but when my psp was right there with god of war, daxter, and peace walker, ds just wasn't an option

Redempteur  +   1658d ago
the Ds games still have great gameplay overall

MK Ds is still fun , dragon quest 9 is still fun
Figboy  +   1658d ago
I would LOVE this to be true.

I have both CoO and GOS, but I've been dying to play them on my 40" Samsung with a dual shock.

I'd be all over this collection so bad. I'd like more PSP HD conversions, or, at the least, the ability to play PSP games bought from the PSN on my PS3. They could even sell the emulator on PSN for a few bucks and I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Give me a PSP and PS2 emulator via the PSN, and I'd be set.
DatNJDom81  +   1657d ago
If you have a PSPGo, you can. But it won't be in 1080P. It will be upscaled. Can't wait for HD remake.
Ddouble  +   1658d ago
If this is true, I wonder how it would do sales wise. It would sort of be a shame if it outsells it's PSP counterparts(Even though it's heavily pirated).

The first part of your comment displeased me to the extent I had the cursor over disagree.
I moved it when I saw the end of your comment though. :)
J@D  +   1658d ago
I think rather that be on HD-Ps3 form the real news is about the game be available on the PSn store, but hey if the news is true count me IN :)
MrBeatdown  +   1658d ago
I'd be interested if the price was right. I have Chains of Olympus, but I got stuck half way through, and since I only play PSP on the road, I never get around to figuring out how to get passed that part with a walkthrough. And I've held off on buying Ghost of Sparta because of it.

I'll never get around to playing all my PSP games as it is, so I'd rather finish Chains of Olympus on PS3 along with Ghost of Sparta and get some trophies out of it.
Tyre  +   1658d ago
Day 1 consider it sold! btw i think God of War 3 is still the graphics king in the industry, beyond any game this gen. yes Crytek...Sorry to say but God of War 3 is best looking game on consoles.

Now just convert Peace Walker and I'll be a VERY happy camper. Traded in PSP last month to Amazon, so an HD Peace Walker is due!
InLaLaLand  +   1657d ago
I agree, I hated some of the ribbon achievements for PW, most required Co-op and Adhoc playthroughs. I have my PSP but I rather the game on the PS3 due to some online components. However I loved the soldier recruitment from Portable Ops with Wifi.
GoldPS3  +   1658d ago
I prefer to play GOW on a TV instead. Don't get me wrong playing them on PSP was great but it really didn't feel as epic as playing it on TV.

If this happens then I can have all the trophies of all GOW games. I don't play for trophies in most games but GOW trophies I really want.

Edit: @49erguy Peace Walker is my favorite PSP game. I would love to play it on PS3 too.

This is pretty funny. I was playing Ghost of Sparta (awesome btw) last night and was thinking how great it would be if both it and Chains of Olympus got an HD treatment. I hope this rumor is true.
richard919  +   1658d ago
Holy shit i hope this is true!
Convas  +   1658d ago
Would be AWESOME! But there are already so many games on my list. Hopefully this would be $40 or below.
BlackIceJoe  +   1658d ago
I hope this turns out to be fake. The reason I say that is because Sony has said in the past when the NGP comes out some PSP games will come out on the NGP as PSP game collections. Just like how the PS3 got PS2 game collections.

So to me that would be an unwise move to bring the PSP games to the PS3. When you could have people buy them for the NGP instead.

I know a lot of people would really enjoy it on the PS3. But to me it just seems like a better move to bring the games to the NGP. So this way people go out & buy an NGP to play these GOW games.

You got a point. How about these two games come out on both NGP and PS3? :)
