Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, we were the first to break the news that a special Blu-Ray God of War package might be headed to the PlayStation 3 later this year.
Well…it's all true. As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog , SCEA has announced the God of War Collection exclusively for the PS3. Set to release "this holiday season," this awesome pack contains "reworked versions of both God of War and God of War II on a single Blu-Ray disc at full 1280 x 720 resolution." This is a totally bad-ass offer, especially to those who missed out on the unrivaled glory of GoW and GoWII on the PS2; it also makes for a perfect holiday gift to any big fan of the franchise. More from the exciting press release:
"Both critically acclaimed games, which were originally developed for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience on the PS3 system. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring PlayStation®Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the first time (included for both games)."
The price? Only $39.99, which is a full $20 cheaper than the normal new release. Now, the only downside is that we don't see a demo for God of War III , which we thought would be included in this package. But even if it's not there, the first two games in high-def plus Trophy support make it well worth the price, and it'll be yet another significant boost for the PS3 this holiday season. Stay tuned for the finalized release date.
