God of War: Origins Collection Demo on PSN This Week

Eric Levine's Avatar + Posted by Eric Levine on Aug 29, 2011 // SCEA PR Manager

Fellow Spartans! We are now just over two weeks away from the September 13th launch of God of War: Origins Collection—an epic compilation of two of the most critically acclaimed PSP titles of all time, God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta. Since I know many of you can’t wait to get your hands on this package, we’re going to sweeten the deal a bit and let you play God of War: Ghost of Sparta early. PlayStation Plus members will have access to the our demo starting tomorrow, August 30th, allowing you to play Ghost of Sparta on PlayStation 3 in HD and stereoscopic 3D for the very first time. This demo will then be available to the general public next week on September 6th. It’s a treat playing both games with the DualShock controller, and they look and feel like they were always intended for the big screen. If you missed our PSP vs PS3 comparison video, watch it now for a deeper look at how we’ve enhance the visuals.

God of War: Origins Collection for PS3

I’d also like to take a moment to thank all of our friends in the media for their flattering impression thus far. If you pick up the September issue of Game Informer, there’s a great preview calling God of War: Origins Collection “a visual treat.” Here are links to a few other recent write ups and mentions about the collection: Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! News, Playboy.com, USA Today, CNET, IGN, Joystiq, Kotaku, Games Radar, and Game Informer.

Thanks, as always, for everyone’s support. Don’t forget: the war begins on September 13th!

I already played both of these on the PSP, but I am looking forward to buying them again on PS3. :D

I can’t help but notice that everytime I see videos of these two games, it’s in a side-by-side comparison with the PSP. Am I wrong to think that this is some sort of ploy to soften our expectations? Make sure we remember that it was originally on a weaker system and a smaller screen? I guess we’ll see tomorrow.

Awesomeness, love PSN releases. Having slapped a 750GB drive in my PS3, it’s awfully handy having all those games available right there, no need to get off my fat butt to play any of the Assassin’s Creed games, original GoW games, Mass Effect 2, etc While I’ve already gotten all the unlockables on the PSP versions of these games, happy to play them all again :)

I’m a PS+ subscriber since day 1, but I must say it’s kinda stupid to give us access to the GoW Origins Collection demo a week earlier than non subscribers and act like it’s something special.

+ jazzyrider on August 29th, 2011 at 9:53 am said:

Wow, can’t wait! So exciting…probably need to play GoW series again on the PS3 and PSPGo.

I really wish they did 3D for the first God of War Collection.
Oh well, really excited for this!

Cheers.

+ Airwalkinman17 on August 29th, 2011 at 10:26 am said:

Both of those games are SO awesome. Ghost of Sparta especially. The cover art looks really nice and all the extra enhancements made for the transition to PS3 make this an instant purchase for any action/adventure fans. September is going to rock!

Any chance you guys plan on releasing this via PSN like the other collections. I’m hoping on a Plus discount :D

+ guitarded77 on August 29th, 2011 at 10:48 am said:

@11 Early access to a MP beta is different than one week early access to a SP demo. Plus I was in the R3 beta before + got in, so it didn’t really matter to me especially since the beta was broken for 2+ weeks. All I’m saying is why not release the demo GoW demo to everyone at once and stop acting like it’s some special treat for + subscribers.

@ Mr. Levine

when do we get the DBZ: Ultimate Tenkaichi demo?

WTF!! Sony, You can remaster GOW for PS3 and 3D but u can’t remaster and port Shadow of colossus to the PSP or PSVita.


23

+ lisatsunami on August 29th, 2011 at 11:06 am said:

Ok, I’ll try the demo. Tried the GOW 3 demo, & found these button mashing games give me a sore finger so I may never be able to get into this series, sadly.

I was planning on buying God of War: Ghost of Sparta on the PSP but thankfully you remastered with HD graphics for the PS3! September will be a busy month for me for gaming with titles like: Resistance 3, Dead Island and now God of War: Origins collection!

+ jgrizzle358 on August 29th, 2011 at 11:56 am said:

I preordered this :)

+ plaztiksyke on August 29th, 2011 at 12:04 pm said:

Does the bluray version has 24-bit/lossless audio assets? Graphics and cutscenes definitely look better that the GoW Collection’s ugly crop/zoom business, but I’m concerned it will sound flat/tinny likw GoW and Prince of Persia Collections did.

+ sciteach on August 29th, 2011 at 12:05 pm said:

reading about how much work they did on this is pretty impressive. i never played these, so i can snag them for sure asap


31

+ GeneralChaz9 on August 29th, 2011 at 12:12 pm said:

Ghost of Sparta on PSP is amazing! But, I am ashamed to say this. I still need to play the GoW PS2 collection, GoW 3, and then I’ll pick this up! I have them in my back catalog…


32

+ Dcrazy204 on August 29th, 2011 at 12:20 pm said:

im geting this when is be for $30 or less.The reason is because i already play and beat both of them on psp.But is would hot to play it on ps3?

Will this collection be released on PSN as well or it`s only on Disc for now? Please release on PSN… you did with infamous 2.

Cool, cant wait to play

+ selfescape on August 29th, 2011 at 12:51 pm said:

I’m kind of shocked so many people think Ghost Of Sparta is better than Chains Of Olympus. Other than better graphics, Chains is a much better game and has a far better story and more satisfying combat. Ghost Of Sparta has a ridiculous storyline and the ending is just poor making the whole game pointless in the grand scheme of things. Not trying to spoil anything for people who haven’t played it but Chains is just better.

1 > 2 > 3 > Chains > Ghost

are the demos going to contain the same levels as the ones from the psp?


37

+ MRGamer01 on August 29th, 2011 at 2:08 pm said:

I’d buy it but as long as my PSP works I’ll stick to that :3. Otherwise I’d love to buy a disc with both PSP games on it!

+ spideyal on August 29th, 2011 at 3:23 pm said:

The only reason I won’t be playing the demo is because I already have it pre-ordered. I want to experience it full in one go. Now if it was a Game Trial, I would have played it since I could just buy it to continue playing it.
