Sony announced today they will be bringing both God of War & God of War II to the PS3. The compilation, which will be called “God of War Collection”, will bring Kratos to the HD era.
God of War collection will have graphics supporting 720p, smoother animations, and the game will run at a consistent 60fps. The Blu-Ray disc will also have complete trophy support and will retail for $39.99.
“We are excited today to announce God of War Collection,” said Scott Rohde, vice president, Worldwide Studios America. “Our fans spoke and we listened; thanks to our partnership with Bluepoint Games, fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic God of War and God of War II saga in stunning 720p on PS3. This Blu-ray Disc compilation brings Kratos to PS3 even earlier than expected.”
This past spring, Sony was taking surveys as to what kind of special edition bonus should be included with God of War III when it’s released in March 2010. One of the suggestions was to include God of War & God of War II in the box set, making the God of War III special edition the ultimate version. With this latest news, I’m assuming the popularity of that particular suggestion gave Sony the idea to offer both titles as a standalone product.
Either way, I’m sure we’re all going to buy it anyways.
