God of War Collection Launches Today for PS3!

John Hight's Avatar Posted by John Hight on Nov 17, 2009 // Director of Product Development, Santa Monica Studio

God of War fans,

Kratos has finally come to the PS3! Just in time for the holidays, fans can now enjoy the award-winning God of War and God of War II in stunning HD. To give you a refresher on specifics, God of War Collection includes both critically acclaimed games remastered in full HD resolution complete with 2X anti-aliased graphics running at 60 frames per second — all on a single Blu-ray disc. And if this ultra smooth gameplay wasn’t enough, we’ve also added PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the first time (included for both games).

Our team did an exceptional job supporting the release of God of War Collection while at the same time tending their work on God of War III. It’s inspirational for us to see the critical acclaim and the overall positive reception we’re receiving for this package. We take pride in everything we do and it’s cool to see that our fans appreciate the effort. An Olympic-sized thank you goes out to the entire Santa Monica Studio, as well as Bluepoint Games, for this momentous accomplishment. With the God of War III launch getting closer everyday, we’re hoping the God of War Collection will get you fired up to reconnect with Kratos!

Here’s another look at our trailer, as well as some of the reviews that have hit so far. In the end there will be only chaos!

Inexcusable that this wasn’t in retailer hands today. What was the use of completing the game two weeks ahead of schedule if you guys weren’t going to have it on shelves in time. I’m sure you guys could come up with some bologna “there’s more to it” excuse, but we all know what happened here. Half assed is half assed, no matter how you spin it. Please make steps to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future.

Yeah it sucks that Gamestop won’t have it until tomorrow.

Ship date isn’t the same as release date. You guys should have put “Ships on 11/17/09” instead of “Available” on the adverts. I scoured my entire city and everyone says, “You can get it tomorrow.” If I wanted it tomorrow I wouldn’t be here but because I was expecting it TODAY I want it TODAY! The same thing happened with Dead Space. Took the day off for no reason. Don’t say it will be out when it won’t be. Grrrr.

Sony should take down this blog post and post it up tomorrow as tomorrow is the release date and today is the ship date of GOW Collection.

Went to two local retailers today, one being a Game Crazy, and neither had it in yet. Game Crazy got the guides, but not games. Looks like I’m not alone.

Some original content for the PS3 would be nice – instead of eliminating BC and re-selling us our games.

*Extremely* [DELETED] move on your part Sony.

Iv been looking foward to this for a while now since I never got into the originals 4 sum reason.but it came out on the same day as assassins creed 2. So it’s getting put off till next week but since iv never played a god of war it’s just like 1 big long new game to me now n that’s great

Yeah, because Sony eliminated BC just so they could get us to rebuy God of War in HD at 60fps with trophies. If only we had the option to buy a backwards compatible console rather than be forced to wait and buy a PS3 without it at a cheaper price. Why does Sony constantly screw us over? What’s even worse is that they went and smashed every last PS2 in existence so we don’t even have the option to play PS2 games on a console that was released a decade ago. Curse you Sony and your money-grubbing ways! Curse you all!
