When David Jaffe weighed in on the God of War III footage he saw, we desperately wanted to get a peek. Apparently, the trailer they previewed at the SpikeTV Video Game Awards wasn't shown in its entirety, so ever since, we've been wondering exactly what it was he saw.

Well, we're not sure if this is all of it, but the new Epic Scale Trailer is downright amazing. And believe it or not, Jaffe is actually nervous that everyone might not be as impressed as he was; here's what he wrote over at NeoGAF:

"I tell you what, I'm not even WORKING on this latest GOD OF WAR game and I feel more nervous about the press and net responses to THIS game than EVER before ūüôā Sh**…what if – TO YOU- it DOESN'T really look like a painting come to life!?!? Ah well, I stand behind what I said. Eager to see if you guys/gals (as well as the press) felt/feel the same way."

Well, color us amazed, even if this trailer isn't exactly what Jaffe saw. And the best part? An SCEA representative confirmed to the MTV gaming blog that the entire trailer is indeed in real-time , and another Sony rep confirmed with Gamezine.uk that there "was no post-work done on the trailer." Okay, so who isn't drooling right now? Who hasn't soaked their keyboard with saliva? …okay, that's gross, but you know what I mean. Oh please let this game come out ASAP!

Oh yeah, and if you want to check out the freshly launched God of War III website , feel free.

Well that beginning when the crow was pirched on the rocks. The grass looked so real, i thought it was a real scene captured in the video until i see Kratos trample over it.

There are some new screens that do look like a painting . They are not from the trailer and show Kratos fighting a centaur while a red titan looks on from the background .

I'm so excited for this game. The trailer was amazing. That little 3 minute long trailer is better than most full games. This game is turning out to be everything I hoped it would be.

Its looks very nice, If you open GameTrailers in two windows and compare the VGA and EPIC trailers you will see the mass amount of improvements Jaffe was talking about!!

Well, after seeing that, if it is "real-time" generated as claimed… it is goodbye to the competition… This was the tipping point I was waiting for… better than Killzone 2, yes?

Very impressive, if it is real time then GOW3 is the best looking console game by far. On a side note am I the only one who felt bad for that bird creature when Kratos ripped it in half?

I say don't get the first to yet. Wait about a month until GoW3 releases, then buy it. If you play it any earlier, you will become hopelessly addicted to the series, which will make waiting for the latest installment almost impossible.

Right now, you have it easy because you don't really know what to expect. Playing the awesomeness that is God of War is like playing a game created by the [Gods].

Tipping point! 3-4 years into the consoles life and we begin to get a sense of what Sony has been saying all along… what will be interesting is the review from Edge… I think if they don't give GoW III a 9 or above it will really expose them for who they really are…

So you've played the current build of the game, Qubex? You know how the game plays? I'm not saying GOWIII will be terrible, but you haven't played it yet, so how can you get, eh, pre-angry at Edge? It could very well be that the game deserves a low score upon release. Hopefully that won't be the case, but you never know. . . .

Wise words LividFiction… but from their track record it does show bias toward the 360. Also, with some intelligence, noting how well the first GoW games did, and having played the second one, and also knowing the developer is one of the best out there… one can make an educated "guess" and/or "conclusion" that the third installment should be stunning, unless something has gone terribly wrong… the chance is there that it could go bad… but I highly highly doubt it… and I am sure most of the readers here will agree with me on that!

Therefore, if Edge gives it below a 9 I feel they are then truly exposed!

I need to play GOW, GOW2, and GOW CoO before this comes out. First KZ2 shows what the PS3 is capable of, next Uncharted 2 will show us a true action movie in game form, then GOW III will rewrite what it means to be EPIC, and then GT5 will have people thinking they can drive their in game Ferrari to pick up groceries! What's next? SOCOM becomes a true Navy Seal sim, M.A.G. becomes a new way to plan out or fight wars, HEAVY RAIN looks so good that a movie adaption is made using real gameplay!!

Footage looks better than DMC4 and NG2. I'm actually kinda psyched.

it looks like the titans are climbing mount olympus…

which means that Kratos is probably part of a large-scale effort to fight them off, which in turn means that it is within the realm of possibility that you could be fighting alongside other gods…

if you remember the end of gow2, kratos is climbing mount olympus with the titans to take down zeus and the gods.

well to LightShow and everyone reading this, this God of War will be the last…the final chapter in the epic Playstation classic. His reference "EVERYONE MUST DIE!" should point out that Kratos is out to kill all of the Gods.

Well, thats what I THINK is going to happen. Not to mention in the trailer on the playstation network are the minions of Zeus, which is for whatever reason, trying to kill Kratos.

It is going to be game of the year. Killzone 2 looks amazing but god of war three is going to be the mark for all future action games. Too bad the series is coming to an end. The should release the first 2 on psn

@cheng – A new diaper?… So umm you wear them all the time? Hehe

That is one detailed crow, the stills look great, but the trailer still kinda looks weird to me.

It looks awesome, but it doesn't look hi-res. The screens look way different though, I guess it's the video.
