Community Random Encounter: God of War Collection


This is quite a few days old, but The Gamesmen have harped on Sony for axing Backward Compatibility out of the PlayStation 3 for quite sometime now so it is indeed relevant. Only now do we realize why John Koller could have been so confident in stating that BC would NEVER return to the PS3, although this independent journalist does not believe the statement completely. Here are some snippets from the US PlayStation Blog post:

“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. God of War Collection offers substantial value to PS3 consumers, the compilation of both best-selling games costing just $39.99 MSRP.

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.”

Sounds enticing, doesn’t it? So, here we go. You are Sony Computer Entertainment. What other collections could we see? An Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collection is really all but confirmed at this point, but what else? Plus, could Sony partner with third-parties and carry this trend to their franchises as well?

  1. Pretty neato deal all things considered though. The first two games brought up to current standard for GoW3 WITH trophies! Thinkin’ this is on Lifelike’s buy list now. (Whether he admits it or not) 😉 Personally, while I liked the story in GoW2, I hated the difficulty ratings.
    I don’t want to play a game that I do more screaming at than having fun. Challenges are good and all, but damn. Hardest difficulty on GoW2 was just insane. Practically everything 1-shotted you. 😦

  2. Oh yeah, and my vote goes towards a “Devil May Cry” collection. Or at least that would be the smart thing to do. Even though sometimes those games are hair-pulling-ly frustrating as well. (lol) 🙂

  3. Honestly, this game is the ONLY reason I wanted a PS3 over the other systems, but defaulted to the 360 because I could share/steal/play games with tha cousins. I would definitely be on top of this collection and quite excited for the 3rd game if I had the chance…but with the “slim” comin’ around sooner than later, maybe there’s still hope?

    That aside, Scotsman…I do agree with you about II, though I’m sad to admit. I never beat it on Titan mode, though I got about half way through it. I utterly raped all difficulties AND challenges in the first one, but lost patience and/or motivation to do the same with the second. Someday though, I think I will give it another shot…though I can’t promise any decent results as I probably won’t be sober when I go for it ;;)

  4. I hear ya’ I owned GoW1 too, but 2 I just couldn’t stand to play through on Titan mode. 😦
    Thanks for the reply! 🙂

  5. You’re damned right this is on my list! I never really played 2 that much, so I need story! Anyway, my vote for the remake treatment is Sly Cooper 1,2, & 3 on BD as a collection with 720p visuals and trophies. What better way to promote the inevitable Sly 4? Or did we already play that as inFAMOUS?
