"The team has assured that no way is the single player being dumb down. Single player has always been their “Bread and Butter” and adding multiplayer is something they excited about."

Finally, I never understood those rants on how it would affect the single player mode anyway. Reminds me of the ranting that went on when Uncharted 2 was said to have multiplayer.

MrDead2762d ago (Edited 2762d ago )

The game director did say that Single player "is our bread and butter” in his GamerLiveTV interview.

Who disagrees with a direct quote?...N4G at its best.

Also I have to say the cutting of the Cyclops lip makes me cringe I can only imagin getting a paper cut on your bellend would be more painful and cringe worthy

Machioto2762d ago (Edited 2762d ago )

Thanks for the video, after see all of it I'm intrigue by how the story turns out and the combat seems more brutal than ever,the way that cyclopes flesh wiggle like that was nasty and more than I expected.

Basjohn2761d ago

Every developer says this. No one says "Yes it will be shit, please give us money anyway".

We cannot make ANY judgements from this PR speak, only from the final product and ME3 sure as hell suffered for multiplayer so I'd keep a skeptical look until proven otherwise by results.

Kevin ButIer2761d ago

:( I was expecting to play as Kratos before the Ares deal

GribbleGrunger2762d ago (Edited 2762d ago )

the only worry i had when they announced multiplayer was that singleplayer would suffer as a result, but it seems as if they're main focus is still singleplayer, which makes me a happy bunny.

it seems that Sony are really going for it this year with BIG game announcements such as LBPKarting, Battle Royale and now this... couple this with a price drop and we could see the biggest Christmas sales Sony have had so far with the PS3.

keep the PS4, i'm set for at least another two years with the PS3

Afterlife2762d ago

I'm glad that there's no Co-op in single player, that would dumb it down.

user77927882761d ago

Yeah Co-Op would just be stupid for the SP, so what? 1 person plays as the epic badass Kratos and the other person plays as his crappy robin-esk sidekick?? LOL

user54670072762d ago (Edited 2762d ago )

What people need to realise that it can go either way

Uncharted 2 is a great example of multiplayer in a single player game going right

90% (Cosgroves "Statistics") of the time tacking multiplayer in a game which has always been about the single player fails...we all know that because we've seen it happen before. It dosen't matter who the studio is, their reputation or respect in the industry it CAN go wrong.

God of War isn't any differen't

I'm more p*ssed off that we are losing single player focused games.

Whats next...Elder Scrolls <sigh>

As for the "no way is the single player being dumb down" quote....come on guys, I could tell someone that I have my own private jet.

You just don't know someones telling the truth untill you've seen it with your own eyes. Lets have an open mind about this not just pick a side

VanillaBear2762d ago (Edited 2762d ago )

People can't stay open minded, especialy gamers

They pick whether they like the "idea" of something not if it will actually work. It's the reason why hype plays a big part in a games review scores and even sales.

Look at Elder Scrolls as you've mentioned, gamers like the idea of online being added but don't think about what would actual happen longterm if Bethesda did add the feature.

I think people want the multiplayer to succeed, but because of not keeping an open mind about the feature is that when it comes out they will want it to work so much that if the worst happens and it's terriable then people will not want to admit it.

As you can already see people are already picking sides wether or not this will work, and no matter what you say will change their opinion

SnotyTheRocket2762d ago

And, Uncharted 2 MP was AWESOME

showtimefolks2762d ago

one of my most awaited games of 2013 hopefully they will have a kickass special edition

online should be if nothing else add some replay value

StraightPath2762d ago

good to hear the multiplayer wont effect on the singleplayer experience.

Kratos and his complexion is of interest to me. The idea that we will see a more human, less vengeance fueled psycho, side of Kratos also sounds intriguing.

ThrazN72762d ago

God of war is the most overrated series. This is proof.Kratos is a lousy character who like's to yell and grunt all the time to seem hardcore and edgy for the kids.

despair2762d ago

how about you take down a titan and then you can come back and complain. Oh and saying "this is proof" without actually providing any doesn't make it true.

WillGuitarGuy2762d ago

Don't feed the trolls...they'll only want to troll harder later.

On topic, I can't wait to see more of the single player. I loved both PSP games so this is sure to be one of my most anticipated titles from the GOW series.

Ocean2762d ago (Edited 2762d ago )

@Thraz Good job you dont have to play it then

Bathyj2762d ago

I think youre confused with another "of War" series.

Afterlife2761d ago

That other game has the same characteristics that your speaking of and I don't see you complaining.

-Single player is shorter.
-Focus on a tacked on multiplayer mode.
-Lie about multiplayer not effecting campaign.

DialgaMarine2762d ago

Obvously, you know this as fact because had the chance to play this game in-deph before the rest of us?

Afterlife2761d ago

On the live stream and interviews, he acknowledges everything that your thinking right now. They are aiming to make the single player better than 1-3. I hope so but just wait and see. E3 is a start.

Simon_Brezhnev2761d ago

lol i know your a troll but i guess you 4got Sony uses blu-ray disc.

DeletedAcc2762d ago

That was impressive
Im so hyped and excited ;) cant wait for e3 ( first sp gameplay, i guess )
