God of War III E3 2009 Demo Included in God of War Collection

John Hight's Avatar Posted by 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 the Voucher code for the GOW 3 demo be packaged inside the collectors box? Or will it be handed out seperatly at retail outlets such as gamestop?

$40.00 for a demo. No thanks! I got burned on that crap with GT5 Prologue. I’ll just get it for free.

It’s $40 for two games, you bag of [DELETED].

sweet blackberry honey!!!! Can’t wait. I own GOW but never bought the second.I borrowed a friends copy for a few months and beat his. Trophies alone make this worth it. Just a thought but wouldn’t it be great to re-release old PS3 games the same way with trophies like Heavenly Sword as platinum versions remastered with trophies.

If this demo isn’t also for Qore subscribers too then I see no point in Qore anymore seeing as how you can watch the vids on youtube for free, there is already better themes you can download for free, and you can get into betas through other sites giving out codes faster than you can get them from Qore.

I won’t buy this game at all. I don’t care about a game where all that happened is that it’s put in HD and given trophies. That just seems like a ripoff. Maybe if the game was remade then I would buy it. This is a ripoff.

hife said:

September 23rd, 1:41 pm

I see you’re going to force me to purchase this collection… Well played.


September 23rd, 1:42 pm

Oh yeah now that is some Sony love!!:)

LeoDaLyon said:

September 23rd, 1:45 pm

Please answer me this! Will there be Platinum trophies for GoW and GoW2?

EmpireNO said:

September 23rd, 1:45 pm

Ti_dus, ofcourse, if you live in the USA the PS3 is half the price it’s in Europe, the games are half the price, and many of the awesome games are released in the US months before they are in Europe (a game like Demon’s Souls isn’t even announced for Europe), dlc and trophy patches for some games are made available a lot earlier in the US. The US HOME is way better and the US PlayStation Store is better. The USA’s got a Video Store.

Living in Europe if feel treated like a 3. class citizen.

EmpireNO said:

September 23rd, 1:48 pm

Come to think of it a release date for God of War Collection hasn’t even been announced for Europe.

Protohype said:

September 23rd, 1:49 pm

More good news woohoo. Sweet deal with the early access to the E3 ’09 GOW3 demo along with GOW1 & 2 of course.

Xoonaka said:

September 23rd, 1:50 pm

Thought this was going to be a CE bonus for GoW3…. is that still going to happen? I’d much rather have a single case for all this Greek violence…

nico2409 said:

September 23rd, 1:58 pm

What about Europe? Why can’t we get this CE? European Gamer are 2nd class :/

MadmanEU said:

September 23rd, 2:01 pm

Not that I don’t appreciate extra content, but why a demo that we’ve all seen 10 times over? It will not be exciting in any way, shape or form.

How about vouchers for exclusive DLC, or a different demo, or exclusive trailers for GoW3, or something NEW.

awesome this deal got sweeter

IceColdKilla44 said:

September 23rd, 2:02 pm

Wow, Sony. This is awesome!

I already had this pre ordered but I really can’t wait for this now.

Hopefully I’ll be able to get the Platinum(s?) before God of War 3 comes out.

EA, OR THQ, and even better Activision.
You can also buy epic games

Can,t wait to see it!

cronqvist said:

September 23rd, 2:20 pm

Awesome! Expectations and hype for GoW collection just grew exponentially after the demo was announced. Thank you!

SirTrigalot said:

September 23rd, 2:27 pm

And with this announcement God of War Collection has just been paid for. Can this collection get any better?

** include GOW psp version up converted to HD with trophies ** wink wink

mixedkidbx said:

September 23rd, 2:31 pm

just another reason to pick this up…. although was already gonna get it.

just gotta remember next time im at gamestop to put it on pre order

Demonhunter84 said:

September 23rd, 2:37 pm

Just placed my order on Amazon for $36.99 with free shipping!

Demonhunter84 said:

September 23rd, 2:40 pm


I was thinking Qore members get first debs on the demo but then again I think those who buy God of War collection get access to the demo first(I could be wrong). Maybe someone from Sony should shed light on this question.

MastahKillah82 said:

Great NEWS count me in !

unstablefears said:

September 23rd, 3:03 pm

I never played any of the GoW series…seeing as both of them will be remade for HD and cheaper than a regular PS3 game I just may pick it up. Is the release date different for Canada? I can’t find the game on :(

Towers76 said:

September 23rd, 3:06 pm

As if that collection was enough already you guys are tossing in a demo? Just plain fantastic. Thanks guys!

Pro-Evo said:

September 23rd, 3:07 pm

this is just AWESSSOME

Not only are we getting 720p’ness but trophies and the demo…OMGGGGGGGGG this just shot right up to the top of my most wanted list.

kiddstir said:

September 23rd, 3:11 pm

r u guys gonna add chains of olympis to the collection?!? that would b the only reason i would get it as i have GOW1&2 which work fine in the PS3 but im not a “on the go gamer” so ill never get a PSP ;)

Kirkpad said:

September 23rd, 3:28 pm

This is really cool. Trophy support, upped resolution and now a GoW3 demo. Great way to entice us gamers.

D-Squad3 said:

September 23rd, 3:34 pm

Holy **** more icing on the cake!!!

Pomato-EX said:

September 23rd, 3:42 pm

September 23rd, 3:52 pm

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! U HAVE MADE ANOTHER ONE OF MY DAYS SONY AND SANTA MONICA STUDIOS!!! I AM SO HAPPY, I came on the blog hoping for cool news like uncharted 2, but then i remembered there was some yesterday, so i thought OH, hopefully GoW3 news, AND BEHOLD, GoW3 NEWS!!! which imo is better than uncharted news(no offence naughty dog! still love u guys game and beta). THIS JUST MADE MY DAY!! any official day yet? i cant wait till november!! maybe i can get this as a bday present, this will hold me over till march on GoW things.
plus the comic is coming out next month, and all these great games coming out at the final months of this year, i can wait!! JUST A FEW MORE MONTHS!!!!!

September 23rd, 4:04 pm

Yay…although what is the price…if it is reasonable I will front the cash :)

RenorMirshann said:

September 23rd, 4:07 pm

OK, so it’s decided, I’m importing it… :)

Don’t add this compilation to GoW III CE, SCEE, because I won’t be happy to buy it twice!

tomoe-chuu said:

September 23rd, 4:15 pm
