Herculean Task: Remastering God of War: Origins Collection for PS3

PS Blog writes:

"Re-mastering both of the God of War PSP games in full HD for the PS3 God of War: Origins Collection definitely had its share of challenges for us. The first goal we had was simply the daunting task of up-rezing the engine and content authored on a PSP running at 480 x 272 resolution and 30 frames per second to 1920 x 1080p at a steady 60 fps on the PS3. This required a custom PS3 version of our engine, coded in-house exclusively for the Origins Collection, as well as a painstaking process by art team. We ended up going through every single character in the game and doubling or tripling polygon count by hand, as well as up-rezing and re-painting every texture across both games at 4x resolution on both characters and environments."

I think it looks good, But I can only personally see higher FPS and more AA. Are there any other differences? Increased texture rez etc

They did a pretty good job on this port. It's not God of War 3 graphics, but it's really good looking.

apparently PSP remasters are juiced up more than I expected, at least this game.

I looked at the 2nd port and I was like, "oh my god!".

I like when developers involve themselves so hard, even though they could just upscale it. Great job!
Im gonna treat myself with a GOW marathon with all 5 chapters chronologically.
Come to think of it, a proper dual layered blu-ray of God of War pentalogy would be appropriate.
