Double The Destruction – God Of War Collection Volume II

ENG_3PA

Just a reminder that God of War Collection Volume II will be available this week from Wednesday 14th September onwards! (Retail and PSN)

For those that missed the previous posts, you get to experience two legendary PSP titles; Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta totally revamped for the PS3.

I hope you will agree the guys at Ready At Dawn have done an amazing job revamping these titles and the following clip really does show the effort and time in making sure the PS3 version benefits from 1080p visuals running at a rock solid 60fps.

In addition to trophy support the game is also playable in full 3D which really does look great if you are lucky enough to own a 3D TV. If you haven’t yet experienced the chaos of Kratos make sure you download the demo from PSN store.

That’s all from me and hope you enjoy playing the game!

Day one!

Ive played both on my PSP and there both incredible!

Trophies added just makes these a MUST BUY…. again?!

lol

1.1

Totally agree KAP :)

2

Was just messaging KAP about this too :p

Just waiting for GAME to get their act together and send it out already, the wait is killing me!

Day 1 purchase for me :)

Loving the HD collections at the moment & this one is great, as I haven’t had the chance to play these great titles!

Come on SONY & speak with other developers & release Jak & Daxter collection (Although it was confirmed this won’t happen :()
, Ratchet, Burnout to name a few!

3.1

The effort gone into this HD collection is great, hope you enjoy the titles!

So wait this is out in the UK tommorow???? =D

4.1

Friday 16th for the UK.

It will? EB had this down as the 15th but today moved it back to the 29th what happened? Hope it was a mistake I really wanted to get this, and I’m now done with R3 so I’m waiting for something new to play. EB got it listed as the 29th now same day as ICO and SOC. Hope that’s not right otherwise I’m going to have to give it a miss, no way I can finish ICO, SOC, and both GOW games within 7 days because I need to be done once RAGE hits on the 6th. Disappointed, i was really looking forward to playing it!

Do we have a price on the digital copies, and will they be sold separately?

What is the digital pricing for these and will they be sold separately?

7.1

Please see Q&A to 20.

will there be a discount for plus subscribers?

8.1

Nothing planned I’m afraid.

had my doubts about the PSP-to-PS3 conversion-o-rama, but after trying the demo from the Store last week, it really got my interested. they look very fine and dandy and great fun aswell, so will hopefully be giving them a try.

i never played them on PSP either, so thats a bonus too, theyre like all new GoW games to some of us :D

9.1

Good to hear that you enjoyed the demo and agree that those that haven’t played the PSP versions – a great way to experience these classic titles :)

PSN..
So i’ll be able to dl these yeah?
With the 3D support?

I’m in.

10.1

Yep will be available on PSN store with 3D support (if you have a 3D TV)

11

Will the EU release also contain this:

“The God of War – Game Directors Live documentary, Kratos Legionnaire bonus skin, and Forest of the Forgotten combat arena (previously included with the Ghost of Sparta preorder package) will also be included with the God of War: Origins Collection.” – SCEA

if yes, awesome! If not, why?!

hi any more ps2 re-remastered stuff. No backward compatibility was a bit of a kick in the face … :(

I wish someone would do a ‘TimeSplitters HD’ collection :P

Or SONY would bring back PS2 playback to the PS3 :-(

Anyway i will get this;)

what about the price?

Any god of war avatars to come out with this make it happen!what aout price think psn users should get a exclusive early access to games.not having to wait for retail

US price is $39.99 so I’m expecting this to be around £40 seeing as Digital downloads and European price are always higher.

Played these on PSP, but I’ll be picking this up on Friday as well now that I’m slowly getting rid of all my PSP stuff in anticipation of Vita. Really great games though, and it’s a shame that so many GOW fans won’t have played them if they didn’t have access to a PSP. At least they won’t have an excuse now! ;)

I don’t have enough money….but the 3D was really impressive. Any plus type discounts?

Looking great.

Let’s get a Jak, Ratchet and Timesplitters Collection now.

Btw, the PSN version better be cheaper than retail or I’ll go into an all caps RAGE. ;) Great game, btw << xD

20

To be honest, I played COO on the PSP but never got round to GOS. I played the demo last week and thought it was really good. If they gave it a decent digital price and released the game separately i am in. Will this be released separately?

20.1

Glad you enjoyed the demo, the games will be available as a bundle on PSN (RRP €29.99) or individually (RRP €17.99)

Hey Rich can you confirm if we (UK) will also get the directors table interview that the US are getting with this too….

Or will we be getting nadda as usual?

22

FINALLY A PS3 PORT!!! *DROOLING*

MORE GODS to KILL!!! lol

can’t wait to buy it.

:)

23

Wow thats a much better cover than the US version. Please remaster Jak & Daxter and Ratchet and Clank now

23.1

:)

I argee with comment 13 we need timesplitters remake best shooters on the ps2 scee there any news about them getting remade b4 the 4th one gets released

so amped for this release, i love the gow series and since i dont have a psp these are the only ones that i havent played

26

Great that non-PSP PS3 owners will get to experience these games. They were a couple of the highlights of the handheld.

Personally, I’m not going to be picking these up again though.

27

1080p, r u sure? of so that sounds awesome

27.1

Yes game supports 1080p

What will be the default retail price of the Collection? I see the PSN version is priced at €29,99. Does the same apply for the physical version? Or does that go for €39,99?

29

What about a bundle of all 4 remastered and GOW3 digital downloads

i have to admit the storyline looks amazing 10/10

31

@28
Ya the Disc version will be €39,99 or at least that’s the price I saw on some stores today…

I’m getting the digital version, just need to know the price of M&M DLC to setup my PSN purchase schedule… Fallout NV DLC, M&M DLC, Magic DLC and now GoW… will be an expensive month…

31.1

Sounds like a fun month playing all those games though.

ive platinumed god of war 2 n won the collection in the weekend debate but cuz i was only debating for fun/already owned the collection i gave em to 1 of my friends

the platinum was easy i hope the trophies are harder on the second collection

34

What is the price for the bundle version for £?

@ Carl-G

I agree, please release a TimeSplitters HD Collection.

CRYTEK, if you want to make some money, make it happen!

About £26.99

So to celebrate this release a discount for the first God of War Collection? :D

44.1

Nice, nothing better than completing a franchise collection.

45

Ratchet & Jak next, yes? ;)

why is it listed as the 29th for NZ release? Your enigmatic see Q & A to 20, whatever does that mean, if you are replying to muzzah’s comment no.5. What Q&A? I cant see any Q & A in this blog post,and comment no 20 doesn’t say anything about the huge two week gap between UK and Occidental release dates.
Frankly it would have been perfect to get the game tomorrow as ico will be out the same week for us now(*sniff*no deluxe collectors 2 disc pack like jp have for Ico/Shadow releases).
Btw my 19″ high hand painted polystone sideshow collectables maquette is glowering from the dresser top across the roomas i write this. eat your hearts out Kratos fans(i have a NECA fig. of Kratey and series one of the DC Unlimited GoW figs as well(Zeus, Herakles, Kratos & Hades. Hmmm I wonder what the Jesus nemesis figurine will look like for the GoW4 action fig. line(I’m kidding))). If you dont have glossy coffee table book The Art of God Of War 3 Daniel Wade, then order it from thebookdepository.com. ...
