I guess they are saving God of War IV for the PS4

lastdual1950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

But can they really pick up after the ending of GOW3 and make it work? A prequel is one thing, but honestly I'd rather they go in a whole new direction (maybe Norse mythology, etc.) with a new character for Santa Monica's next gen outing.

The studio has a lot of talent. Better to let them experiment with a new IP (like Naughty Dog is doing with TLoU) than tie them down to Kratos forever.

They took a page out of Microsoft's book or bungies book. Before moving on to a new possible trilogy for next gen, release the origin storylike reach. But then 343 & microsoft go and do something crazy and release halo 4 for 360. They have to have it though.

Sony would b real smart to release a gow4 as a launch title for ps4. Who knows, maybe santa monica moves on to something new and another studio of great talent and gow lovers will be created to start the new trilogy, lol.

Imagine what Kratos would look like if 'Ninja Theory' got their hand on him.

Magic_Spatula1950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

@ Denethor_II

I shutter to think what would happen to the series and Kratos if Ninja Theory took over. Plus, I don't think that Sony's that stupid to let one of their best IPs get into their hands, seeing as how Tameem blamed them for the "poor" sales of Heavenly Sword.

sikbeta1950d ago

Day Freaking One!


Yeah, was pretty obvious, but who cares, gimme more GOW!

jeseth1950d ago

@ denethor

If Ninja Theory got their hands on Kratos they would completely emasculate him and make him look like a wimpy, angry, hipster kid that could beat up a 4 year old girl .... Like they did with Devil May Cry!

MS/Bungie hardly invented videogame subtitles, lol. Resident Evil has been doing subtitled sequels/prequels forever and a day.

Code Veronica, Outbreak, Survivor, Dead Aim, Umbrella Chronicles, Darkside Chronicles, Gaiden, Operation Raccoon City.

Grand Theft Auto, Assassin's Creed, Silent Hill, Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, Burnout, Batman, Motorstorm, Hitman, Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Contra. The list goes on.

subtenko1950d ago

@lastdueal Yea they can pick up with plenty of ideas for GOW4. With the Ascension title, I thought this was gonna be GOW4...

Also they could do an open world sandbox GOW where you can control a lot of things. Elements, mechanics, people, emotions, basically anything and wreck havoc. Something like that I would save for PS4. More gorgeous graphics :)

Someone also said they could have made this trailer to draw away attention, possible but maybe not this time.

Agree or Disagree if you Agree :)

darthv721950d ago

this will be the 6th game in the series overall but be considered the prequel to the other 5.

Can't wait.

Gaming1011949d ago

In case you missed it, Kratos died in GOW3. They aren't going to continue the series after all the gods are dead. They can only do prequels at this point because of the poor choices made by the idiots who wrote GOW3's ending.

More Awesome Games, keep em Coming SONY.

Nimblest-Assassin1950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

I liked the inky art style of the trailer.... so is this a full on PS3 release, or something like Infamous festival of blood?

ok... its a full release.

I want a new Kratos fix, wonder what the story will be... only time will tell

colonel1791950d ago

You are all forgetting one thing about the game: THE GRAPHICS! I don't think the will reuse GOW3 graphics. They might be an improvement, but even that says a lot. The graphics will be awesome, and could be even better than Uncharted 3

slaton241950d ago

a game isnt all just about got to make sure the story is great to draw the attention of people and that the controlls work sure graphics are nice but do we really want a game to look like real life like you and me..gow3 had great graphics and i could care less if its the same graphics with this game,

slapsta721950d ago

So if this is set before he becomes the ghost of sparta then we will be playing a very different looking kratos (no white ash covering his body) - don't know how I feel about this.

I love god of war but were 2 prequels and a trilogy which itself touched on kratos' past not sufficient? Hopefully the story is inspired enough to warrant another back tread.

DEATHSTROKE-cro-1950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

how was it a secret if sony put the teaser picture on facebook ? -__-

btw. can't wait to see who will be the bosses

Ashriel1949d ago

Everyone knew it was a new GOW game even before the teaser pictures -_-

lelo2play1950d ago

Great news.

Sony, what about a PSV version ?

ritsuka6661950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

God of War series is officially in "milked status..

That is an IP that has been milked to no end.i wish Sony would create some thing new, other than just milking this series SHM.

Baka-akaB1950d ago

Guys dont you get tired of that complaint ? Sony creates new ips all the time , it's up to you to try and enjoy them (or not) while having access to old ones .

Most people didnt play both the main serie and some psp spin offs , even with the re-release , it's hardly that milked

OmniSlashPT1950d ago

2 GoW's in the PS2, 2 GoW's in the PSP, 2 GoW's in the PS3. OMGZ it's being milked

gtfo bot

vega2751950d ago (Edited 1950d ago )

funny I said the samething and got a bunch of disagrees for it. but from what I'm getting. It's only milking when it comes to a MS/360 game cause they only consider MS Milking a franchise and it's only milk when it's on one system.(which is BS)

sonyfanboys standards change everytime sony does the same as other companies do. it's just more acceptible when sony does it.

expect massive disagrees and you will be de-bubbled. NO ONE SHOULD SPEAK ILL OF SONY. THIS IS LAW lol

SilentNegotiator1949d ago


Riiiiiiight, because you see "sony fanboys" ALWAYS attacking games for TWO entries on a system. /s

Quit trolling.
