John Hight's Avatar + Posted by John Hight on Sep 23, 2009 // Director of Product Development, Santa Monica Studio

You have seen the videos and you have seen the screens, soon you will have the chance to play what the lucky hundreds experienced at E3, Comic-Con and PAX. Coming this fall, we are happy to announce to fans that God of War Collection will include the long-awaited God of War III E3 2009 Demo. Each copy of God of War Collection will include a voucher code that can be redeemed through PlayStation Network on the day of purchase. This is your chance to experience God of War III before it hits store shelves March 2010.

Just recently announced on the blog, God of War Collection features remastered versions of both God of War and God of War II on a single Blu-ray Disc at full 1280 x 720 resolution with 2x anti-aliased graphics. Both critically acclaimed games, which were originally developed for the PS2, are running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience on your PS3. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring PSN trophy support to the franchise for the first time. God of War Collection will be available in November. Keep an eye out for video gameplay soon.

Will each game in the collection have it’s own PLATNIUM trophy to be earned? And this is great news! Day 1 purchase for me. :)

Wow – this is exciting news! Can’t wait to pick this up. I borrowed a friend’s PS2 to play the first 2 series but after the recent announcement on the remakes, I gave it back and will wait for the remastered / updated editions. So can we start pre-ordering this??

+ superstewie on September 23rd, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

@7 u don’t have to buy this! if you already own the ps2 version u probably still have a PS2.
this is just a nicer version, no one is forcing anybody unlike on the xbox360 your free to buy whatever you want.

+ samich2007 on September 23rd, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

Is the Collection edition coming to the EU soon? because we also want to play the 2 games and offcourse the demo!

Thank you so much. I can’t wait for the God of War I and II. I was going to replay them on the PS2 to get ready for GOW III. Now I can replay them with better graphics and trohpies. Now you are adding a demo voucher for GOW III, this just keeps getting better and better. You guys rock and thank you so much for listening and taking notes of our comments and the things we are interested in.

Duh! I never doubted Sony would do this.

The whole reason for the GoW collection is to boost hype for GoW3. Why would the demo not be there?

I knew it would :)

Now it’s official.

Made my pre-order on Amazon the first day it was listed. Smartest marketing idea to hype a new game in a series EVER!! Hope other IPs/devs follow in your footsteps with their PS2 masterpeices and series releases. Well done guys!!!

Dang it I had to already buy the PS2 version of GOW and GOW II this past summer to get caught up.

I wasn’t gonna get the collection, but with revamped graphics AND demo of GOW III.

SONY you have an eye on my wallet don’t you?

PS. I am stuck on the GOW slide floor to firey hell. I can’t get past with out falling in. :(

Come on guys, give me a break! I just marked the GoW collection off holidays games list, and now it’s right back on.

I played this demo back in Toronto a few weeks back, cannot wait to get my hands on it again. I love you for making God of War, and hate you for taking all my money. :P
