First Look at the God of War Collection Trailer!

You know it’s coming and now you can have a sneak peek at the God of War Collection. Available this November – just in time for the holidays — fans and newcomers to the franchise will be able to experience the epic journey that is God of War and God of War II on the PlayStation 3 for the first time remastered in full HD resolution on a single Blu-ray Disc. Both critically acclaimed games (originally developed for the PS2) will include 2X anti-aliased graphics running at 60 frames per second for an ultra smooth gameplay experience on the PS3. PlayStation Network trophy support will also be included – a first for the series. Take a look…

And don’t forget, the God of War Collection will also include a PSN voucher code for the God of War III E3 2009 Demo. So don’t miss your chance to check out God of War III before it hits store shelves in March 2010.

Only thing missing was a scene that showed you earning a trophy with the trophy notification icon on the screen.

Gosh… suck for being in France as I have to preorder the game from a Canadian website. Hope they make a fast delivery once the game is out.

Cant wait for this :(

Looking at the video I can definitively tell a difference, but it’s not a big one. Personally I didn’t expect much anyway so I’m fairly satisfied and will certainly buy this once it’s out (even though I already own it). From the trailers it seems there’s pretty much no jaggies and the graphics is really clean, which in turn kinda made it a bit cartoony looking imo (that doesn’t bother btw).

In any case I can’t wait to play this game for the third time. Just read the Odyssey book and my appreciation for Greek Mythology dramatically increased. Going through God Of War: Chains of Olympus right now, which still looks freakin amazing. Man I can’t wait to experience me some Greece again, can’t wait to look at the names and go “ohhh I know who this is”.

God of War = Win
God of War 1 & 2 in the same disc= Epic Win!

Please sort out the EU release though, it’s like being at the bottom of the food chain sometimes.

And we usually pay more for the privilege too (NZ).

Hey Ken, could you please clarify something?

Will God of War III Demo (included in collection) be ready to download on same day?

Also, is it going to be the same Demo that will be available for everyone on the store at a later date?

    Hi Trix_Bol, yes the GOW III demo voucher redemption will be available for download the day of GOW Collection release

At #107 It is because it is a PS” game, not a ps3 game. It just got remastred in HD which is awesome, but still its a PS2 game. I never had the chance to play thisa 2 games, but always wanted, so this is a Instantly buy for me :)

    Definitely. We are working on having it up on the PS Store as soon as possible

Miles514 said:

October 16th, 6:55 pm

WOOOHOOO!!! Trophy support!!! That, the framerate, and the god of war 3 demo makes this worth the money!

How about Europe? Are we still getting it in January next year when the US gets it in November? If that’s true then what possible reason can there be?

xeno3d said:

October 16th, 7:23 pm

This looks amazing!!

I never played GOW or GOW II. I never bothered to take a look. The first intro to the series was just recently Chains of Olympus on the PSP and let me tell you, I am hooked. I can’t wait for this!!!

c45j said:

October 16th, 7:33 pm

I am extremely disappointed. Please, please fix the widescreen for the first god of war. looking at the video, it is obvious that

the orginal image has been cropped, meaning we see less than the ps2 version, and thus is not true widescreen.

poweredbyzen said:

October 16th, 7:48 pm

this is going to be awesome! i played god of war and never got to finish! i can finally pick it up again and get some trophies! god of war ii is still shrink wrapped! thanks a heap! :D

c45j said:

October 16th, 7:50 pm

seriously.. either put the game back to its original 4:3 aspect ratio, or do the widescreen correctly.

so awesome, Day 1 purchase! <3

SpyDudeFX said:

October 16th, 8:41 pm

Can you post the trophy list? Surely the list is finalized by now.

Kchow23 said:

October 16th, 9:27 pm

Will the videos from the Devs be included also in the collection? I haven’t watched the ones for GOW II

starBlinky01 said:

I have both for PS2 that I bought for my brother but borrowed them and have been playing them on my PS3. I already beat 1, but cant beat a certain part in 2.. after you jump around some falling pillars with your grapple hook there are some waves of enemies.. that part is too hard for me.. It asks if I want to play on easy.. but Id never ever go to easy!

John, I hope you can do me a huge Favor, a couple weeks back I met at jury duty in LA, a, I believe she said she was assistant producer for GoW3, her name was Jessica Griffith. I’d appreaciate it if you could tell her I said Hi. Btw, thanx for the update on this been waiting for an HD trailer since announcement day….well…maybe before….

Sylin said:

Already got it pre-ordered. Thanks, Sony! I’ve only played CoO on PSP, so this will be a treat for me.

Now, if only we could get Ico and Shadow of the Colossus remastered in HD for PS3, life would be nearly complete!

O wait, this is another exclusive to US thing.
thanks sony for giving me the finger,YET AGAIN!
they want your money, but when it comes to giving you the content there nowhere to be found.

RunnerKyle said:

I’m really looking forward to this! Please put this trailer on the PSN, I really want to see it in full HD!

Platinum_Parker said:

October 17th, 12:28 am

I consider myself a true fan and I’m not going to complain about how I purchased the original games on the PS2 and how this is a waste of time. In my eyes it’s not; it’s the purest form of good fan service! Thank you Sony for listening to your fans!

c45j said:

October 17th, 12:38 am

fix the widescreen.. increase the FOV …

video comparison of remaster and original.

Hi Ken Chan,

Do you know when we will have it in Europe please ? :(

And do you know when we will have some new footage of GoW III.

Thank you.

it’s a good name i saw it on a ps2 and it was the best game i saw

azad512 said:

October 17th, 2:49 am

sorry i meant game

mixedkidbx said:

October 17th, 4:44 am

Already have this on pre order. I played the first one just didnt play the second one. It will be nice to be able to play it, although after i play the first one again. :P

plus trophies…. how could you not want to play the games again.

i think all future games that are HD ports of ps2 games should have trophies. just a suggestion :P

SgtRufus said:

October 17th, 4:59 am


I’m sure there will plenty of people who buy this due to the absolutely useless trophies. Trophies are a great scam that the gaming companies use to sucker people into buying the same game over again. Glad I don’t bother with them.
