God of War Collection – Blu-ray Disc Compilation Available This Holiday Season

The fans spoke and we listened.
For those that recall the God of War survey conducted earlier this year, an overwhelming amount of the community suggested the PlayStation 2 experiences of Kratos be brought forth to the PlayStation 3.

Thanks to your feedback, we are excited to announce the God of War Collection for this Holiday Season. Now fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic journey of God of War and God of War II in 720p HD form. Both titles have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PS3 system. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring the PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.

This is your chance to experience God of War is its true form before the chaos of God of War III hits store shelves come March 2010.

kharma454103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

This'll deffo be a must purchase!

HD, trophies, AA graphics, quality job Sony :)

Bravo!

I think this is the way BC for PS3 will be for PS2 titles in the future, the big AAA titles will be remastered like this and sold. Just my opinion on it :)

blackpanther254103d ago

i can't believe it......i just bought them two months ago, but this is crazy.

720p
anti-analyzing
and Trophies

This is crazy i hope made people buy it.

ActionBastard4103d ago

"Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring the PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the very first time."

WTF!?!? Just...awesome...

Venomish4103d ago

YES THEY DID, they totally did it!!!
who needs BC, just give me that blu-ray compilation !!! :D :D :D
enhanced visuals, two games on 1 bluray, I'm glad I sold my original GoW1/2 games back then :D :D

Venomish4103d ago

IT HAZ TROPHIEZZZZ!!!!! :)

StanLee4103d ago

Pretty sweet!!!! Day 1 purchase.

IdleLeeSiuLung4103d ago

Unless I got BC, but god dang!

sniper-squeak4103d ago

I'm adding this to my list noww :)

MTEC84103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

someone pinch me, I can't believe their actually going to do it. This made my day.

Theonik4103d ago

I'm so happy i'm giving bubbles for all that are above me.

lordcrackpot4103d ago

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

YEAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOOOOOOOOOO SOOOONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

YES!!!!

Venomish4103d ago

good idea, we shall celebrate
everyone above me gets a bubble+

sofresh2004103d ago

These were the only two games I wanted BC for, now I can enjoy these in 720p!

UnwanteDreamz4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

Now I wonder if the rumors of a GOW3 demo being included were true?

I was gonna buy a DVD copy of GOW2 because I never finished it but now I don't have to. Dam* it feels good to be a gamer!

Raf1k14103d ago

My list of reasons to buy a PS2 just got reduced by 2.

Can't wait for this. After I played Chains of Olympus all I wanted to do was play GoW1&2 and now I will be able to without needing to get a PS2.

Mr_Bun4103d ago

Challenge of Olympus mode almost killed me...I don't know if I can do it again!

raztad4103d ago

OMG!!!!!

God of War 1 & 2 at 720p, this is madness! :D. I want to cry of joy. Unbelievable.

GoW1&2 HD == Day ONE for me.

morganfell4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

Madness? No this is Sparta!

I was playing GoW II this weekend and we were talking about the PlayStaion Mexico rumor that crept out last week. Effing sweet!

p3rf3ctgam3r4103d ago

For someone who has never played God of War or God of War II this is an epic deal. $39.99 for two games that were both staples on the PS2… 60FPS … 720P …. Trophy Support ….

WHAT MORE COULD I ASK FOR BESIDES SITTING ON THE F’N THROWN ON MT. OLYMPUS MYSELF ? ? ? ?

(actually, even if you have the original PS2 versions, this still seems worth it if you loved the games and want to get trophies)

Aclay4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

I already have both God of War 1 and 2, and I've already beaten them both 3-4 times each on the Harder Difficulties, but as a God of War fan, this is a must buy for me.... I mean, Trophies and a Remastered game in HD! Getting it Day one.

For those that haven't played God of War yet, PICK THIS UP if you want an Action game with a Amazing Storyline, you won't regret it.

nycredude4103d ago

Damn these two games in one bluray package with updated graphics and trophies for $39.99 embarrasses most current gen games out now and most coming out soon!

Even though I already have them on ps2 this is first day buy for me!

morganfell4103d ago

Now let's see if that last part of the PlayStation Mexico rumor is true...

Sarcasm4103d ago

HOLY COW BALLS AND BRITNEY SPEARS LICKING CHRISTINA AGUILERA!!!

THIS IS F'IN MEGATON.

sonarus4103d ago

WOW...i didn't believe the rumors but this is a dream come true for God of war fans

morganfell4103d ago

Well Sarcasm, you know you comments about this being Megaton are stumping some MS supporters.

They have no idea what this means...

UnwanteDreamz4103d ago

The inclusion of a demo for God of War 3 would almost be too much!

*crosses fingers*

Megaton4103d ago

Oh man, trophy support didn't even cross my mind when I read the rumor about this coming. Gonna pick this up for sure, even though I still own GoW 1 and 2.

morganfell4103d ago

Exactly. That was the other mentioned item so let's make an offering to Athena. Even without it this is just mindblowing news.

Theonik4103d ago

And "The end begins" !!!!

vickers5004103d ago

This is huge f*cking news! It's like a God of War 1 and 2 remake, both happening at the same time! 2 of the best action games of all time, remade in high definition, 60fps, in one package!

*faints*

locos854103d ago

I'm surprised there isn't a single disagree above me yet!

himdeel4103d ago

...YES LAWD!!! Bought DAY 1!!

soljah4103d ago

GOW 3 DEMO ON BLU-RAY ANYONE?

Marceles4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

What a great announcement lol, time to add this to the 2010 PS3 must-have list.

edit: wait...this holiday season!! 2009 list! AGHAHGAHGAHHGAH (explodes)

Nineball21124103d ago

Man, this is bittersweet.

I just bought both of those titles this past spring to play on my PS3 (software emulation)!!

LOL... They were only $20 bucks each, but if I would have known, I would have waited to get this...

The trophies are calling me! :p

Man...

Silellak4103d ago

Awesome! I've only ever played all the way through the PSP version, but watched my roommates play through bits and pieces of GoW1 and 2, so this is perfect for me!

Sarcasm4103d ago

It's crazy. This one really came out of left field.

Sure it was rumored, but wasn't really hot news.

But now that it's reality, it's two more excellent reasons to buy a PS3!

Come onnnnnnn... Two of the greatest PS2 games ever created on one blu-ray disc, upscaled or not but with trophies!?!?!?!

Sony did it. They really did it.

I'm still shocked...

Now, anybody know a release date? Before Christmas?

And to think, GT5 could possibly be coming out this year. Uncharted 2, GoW compilation, Ratchet, GT5. My new Slim is gonna get a major work out.

Sarevok4103d ago

Oh no...this is bad...very bad..I HAVE TO BEAT TITAN MODE AGAIN!?!?!
*crys*

darthv724103d ago

Excellent news. It would be a total killer if chains of olympus was an unlockable bonus.

Trophy support and 720p hd ftw!!!

Hellsvacancy4103d ago

Im gonna get 2 play both of the God Of War games b4 i do the 3rd SWEET NEWS

theEnemy4103d ago

I would have even pay a full $60 for this.

A very nice move in before releasing GoWIII.

cl63AMG4103d ago

I need a new pair of pants...

kalebgray924103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

remastered ftw.... a developer who knows what we want and they delivered then gow3 a few months after

omg please do this for the kingdom hearts series i would cry if it did and pay for it again

Greywulf4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

Your hand... Athena will be pleased ;)

I...errr WE.. NEEEED that demo... be brave..

edit:

lol.. ill compile a list.. >:) (travels to open zone)

morganfell4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

But you don't have to pay $60. It will be a mere $30 mortal dollars and the possiblility of a GoW III demo. I already own both games but I am still getting this.

Ha ha ha, Greywulf. I can think of a great many bodies to toss onto the pyre.

theEnemy4103d ago

lol yeah, but even if they put a price tag of $60 on this, I would still get this.

I have seen GoW 1 and 2 played on a PS3, and it doesn't do justice.

GoW needs an HD treatment. ;D

Kaleki4103d ago

Awesome News! I will be buying this for sure!

morganfell4103d ago

I absolutely agree. One of my PS3s is a 60GB model. The upscaler in there is nice but 720p? Oh yes that will be perfect. I wonder if they will fix exploits like the Titans Fury trick on the ice bridge in GoW II?

Christopher4103d ago

NOW THAT'S F'N FAN SERVICE FOR YOU RIGHT THERE!

jwatt4103d ago

I will be definitely be getting this but if they add the GOW demo it's going to be crazy.

bnaked4103d ago

Hail Sony! Hail the God of War!

JonnyBigBoss4103d ago

I feel like my heart just exploded. I never knew I cared about video games this much. God of War is such a highly acclaimed series and I haven't managed to ever play it (except for GOW3 at E3).

I can't wait to platinum this one.

Lou-Cipher4103d ago

This is the best way to get everyone excited for God of War III.

Day one.

Ri0tSquad4103d ago (Edited 4103d ago )

God Of War I & II in 720p HD, 60FPS, and trophies?

No way

Only $39.99?

I'll buy 10 copies of this game.

RememberThe3574103d ago

That is exactly what I was thinking- all at the same time.

Dutch Boogie4103d ago

*Evil unstoppable laugher*

*sniff sniff* Sony you old dog, you actually did it. This holiday season has officially been won.

callahan094103d ago

I sent SONY the following message in response to this awesome news:

"Thank you, Sony, for listening to us and giving us what we want. You did it before with Firmware 2.40 and in-game XMB, and now you’re doing it again with this.

This is by far the coolest news this year for CURRENT Playstation 3 owners. The Slim and price cut announcements were awesome for people on the fence for buying the machine, but for those of us who’ve had a PS3 for awhile, this is much bigger news!

Now, please listen to me, listen to the fans, we are RIGHT on this matter, and that is: Do a similar collection for Team Ico before The Last Guardian comes out!

ICO and SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS at 720p (though try your hardest to make it 1080p, please!), 60 fps, anti-aliasing, and trophy support. You’re talking serious epic win if you pull that off for us! Not to mention that Ico is very rare, and for 40 bucks, in high-definition, current-gen glory with trophies as an incentive, a ton of people who never got to experience those two gems will get to finally see what all the fuss is about and that’ll only help you to market and increase the awareness of The Last Guardian before it launches.

Please, take this friendly word of advice. Ico. Shadow of the Colossus. PS3 combo pack. Do it!"

SupaPlaya4103d ago

I DEMAND a MGS collection in 720P with trophies.

vhero4103d ago

Most positive thread ever on N4G? Seems this is gonna help a lot shift from PS2 to PS3.

Sigh4103d ago

IM COMING AFTER YOU ZEUS! IN HD OF COURSE!

:D

Great news

rubarb234103d ago

That was funny dude. Bubbles.

Gamer11114103d ago

i knew this was happening like 6 months ago from a sony rep.

MEsoJD4103d ago

and I would easily drop $60 down.

^_^

Sarick4103d ago

I recently posted about dev not doing enough to get the titles back into production. It was in the buying used and Jaffy fighting. What happens LOL suddenly his product is getting announced just like what I was writing about..

My statement was that in some cases the only way to get out of production titles was to buy used. I then pointed out I didn't want digital downloads I wanted tangible on disc.

Really caught me off guard.

Gue14103d ago

But why 720p and not 1080p? WHY>!? ;_;
