I know it sucks for EU customers, but why not just import it, the PS3 is region free, I did that for a few JPN games and MK vs DC, b/c of the uncensored Joker Fatality. Worked fine.
Already done for me, It's been a while I don't trust SCEE anymore. Knowing them, I predict they will release GoW Collection at the same time as GoW 3, just like they done with Street Fighter, releasing Street Fighter II HD Remix at the release date of Street Fighter IV.
Any suggestions from what site? And please not ebay.
In my case just because I don't know if it has spanish language available. Could someone throw some light on this?
@dorron: I'll receive my copy in the next few days, so I'll tell you if you want to know. But apparently it's only in English (well, it's not like if God of War had much text...).
http://www.videogamesplus.c... they shipped mine on the 16th and it arrived in the UK on the 24th.
VD im on it
screw up again. There is no reason whatsoever this this collection to not come out the same day as in NA. There is no reason why Eurpoeans should not just walk into a store and get this game the same day those in NA.
All well and good till UPS manage to fu*k up the delivery 3 TIMES!!! Poor - Apparently it's coming to my place of work tomorrow. Hmmmmmm.... We'll see.
@Shane Kim Axelmusic.com, pretty fast and good prices.
The EU is very protectionist; So they put up a million trade barriers and tariffs. This is the reason why things take so long to release and cost so much. Canada has a fair amount of regulation, but NAFTA(and fear of US invasion) prevents a lot of protectionism in Canada! NAFTA doesn't stop US from anything; They basically ignore it knowing we can't do $hit and suck up our oil like a sponge!
Guys Unfortunately there are no subtitles in GOW 1 and 2 FYI.
is there any difference at all between games from other regions? I have MGS4 from China... was just wondering. It's region 3.
It depends of the game and the region, but the most times, the difference is in the languages available in the game. Some japanese games may have only japanese language, voice and subtitles, some other games may have japanese and english language, other games may be international versions, with japanese, english, spanish, french, deutsch, italian languages. In rare cases, games are censored in a region and not in another. For example Left 4 Dead 2 in Australia is censored while in the rest of the world it's not. On PS3, rumors slated that Heavy Rain would be censored in USA due to nudity (we all know that despite being the first consumer of porn movies, americans don't like boobs). Like I said, it depends of the game and the region. Sometimes you wont see a difference, sometimes the languages available change, sometimes it's more than that.
If it doesn't come before God of War III, it's kind of pointless, really.
I agree it is important to release before GOW 3 but those two games remastered are great games in their own rights and STILL better than most games out now these days! Alot of people haven't played them yet so whenever they release I am sure gamers will be glad. $40 for two of the best action games EVER and they freaking look great in HD!
God of War Collection will be released probably at the same month as GoWIII but in the beginning of March insted of the end, which is the release date for GoWIII, but nothing is yet decided. The only sure thing is that the EU version of the Ultimate Edition of GoWIII WILL include the GoW Collection along with everything else announced for the USA version and will retail for 130+ Euros. For those who don't believe me you can boomark this comment for future reference...
the fact that its coming next year is bad enough but its not even coming at the begining of the year? i dont fancy importing so epic fail SCEE, just another blunder to add to the list
If anyone wants to know a good importer in uk let me know i wont just post it up cus it looks like advertising..but this place does next day delivery and just got my copy of GoW collection..... and i got demon souls from them a while back... I missed out when Gow was released first time so looking forward to getting involved... On my playlist : MW2, AC2, GoW collectors, Demon souls (damn it feel good to be a gamer....) :)
MW2=finish first cause is less than half of each GOW game in that collection AC2=hold off for now cause it is decently long Demon SOuls=play during the holiday lull in Dec (Way too long to pick up) Play GOW 1 and 2 first as those games will seriously rock your socks off! I am playing GOW 2 now and I swear it is better looking than alot of games this gen. Incredible games!
pm us your importer please.
So NYC, the GOW games are about 8 hours each?
I finished the first one in just over 10 hours and I am about 8.5 hours into the second and I think there is at least another 1-2 hours left. Really, really great games and at this price it is a steal!
If you in uk use www.gamesbasement.co.uk ... they have GoW collectors in stock I ordered mine monday and got it tuesday :) And yeah the GoW looks amazing on Ps3 .. the animations and framerate is spot on.. unlike a certain game that is highly enjoyable but has a hell of a lot of screen tearing *no names mentioned*
Does it release before GOW3 in EU? If not then it is kinda stupid on Sony's part imho. I picked it up and will play it to refresh myself before the GOW3 release in March in the states. Does GOW3 launch in March in EU as well? Hope you guys get it before GOW3.
I was hoping for a Janurary release but I have so many games to play I can wait. They might have an a special edition of GOW3 like the US one but with the first two games as well in a "God edition."
Too late, I already have the US version. And yes, I used Ebay, but chose a seller based in my own country.
I'm just glad my UK buddies can get this game one way or another.
over God of War HD. Give Europe Demon's Souls. Nonetheless this is good news for those poor Europeans who seem to get the bad end of the stick... that is if they even get a stick to begin with.
Yeah! I would gladly buy Demon's Souls EUR version...if not, I will import it later. Still, I want GOW HD :-p
Europe is smart! ;) You can pick up PS2 versions of GOW's. Demon's Souls is a more necessary purchase. Lost 780,000 souls yesterday, as unbelievable as that may sound. My own stupid fault and caused me to finally eject the game and pop in Uncharted 2!
I totally agree with you we want Demon's Souls before GOW:Collection. Don't get me wrong i want God of War too, but it's at second place with 99.99% which is just behind the 100% of Demon's Souls.
I am sorry to hear that Europe is not getting the game on time you guys are lucky Knowing when it may arrive I did not even know it was out till I asked EBgames what the new releases were. I wish Sony would've advertised it on tv telling peole it was out. I guess importing is the way to go to get it or dust off the PS2. Speaking of importing if someone imports a game from Japan can the PS3 tranlate the Japanese text or do some of the games come with english text added. I am just wondering cause i want to try and import Tales of Veaspria, Altier Rorona, and Ar Tonelico 3. And I am not sure if they have the english loaded one them or if the PS3 can translate does anbody know?
I pre-ordered and imported this on MovieTyme and received it the Saturday after it released in the US so it was quite quick to arrive to me in the UK. For any UK readers that want it here is the link - http://www.movietyme.com/ca... Not sure if you can use MovieTyme for other parts of Europe but they were quite fast in getting my copy to the UK. If there is no awesome GOW3 collecters edition here to match the one being released in the US then I might import that too.
Ive seen the God of War Collection in my local Gamestop (american Version) and I live in Germany. I want Demon Souls, but I dont want to import it from the net. I love such fantasy oriented RPGs, so its a hard punch in the face for me ... :(
good news but it really is no bother importing it and getting the game months before EU release
My imported copy arrived today. I can't play it for a few more hours but damn is it nice to have it.
Yay! Look's like I don't have to import after all!
But I'm happy that it's coming to EU :) I'm getting this one...
Imported through Movetyme for £27. Well worth it, it looks and plays fantastic.
