By Zeus' Beard! God of War Collection Goes Cross-Buy on Vita

Posted by Sammy Barker

Fit for a God

You’ll be able to put your PlayStation Vita’s face buttons through their paces this week, as the God of War Collection is set to storm Olympus later today in North America and tomorrow in Europe. Boasting both the first and second games in Sony Santa Monica’s iconic Greek God slaying series, the title will also be fully cross-buy compatible, meaning that if you purchase the digital version, you’ll unlock the PlayStation 3 release and vice versa. In other words, you may already own this.

Much like the Sly Cooper Trilogy, this is a direct conversion of Bluepoint Games’ excellent high-definition upgrade, although it does feature a few new touch inputs. “The God of War Collection for Vita brings the same level of full control to [the portable],” community manager Aaron Kaufman explained on the PlayStation Blog. “We’ve also added touch control enhancements to environmental weapon interactions like catapults and opening doors, which happens to work great for opening chests as well. “

@get2sammyb I am not sure if I would buy GOW on Vita full price but I would definitely get it.

This is a little bit off topic but I really like this Cross-Buy thing (even if it is DLC only in some games) and it is good that we also have PS4-Vita Cross-Buy titles. I also like that PS1 Classics are playable in PS3,PSP and Vita. I wish Nintendo used it sometime but it seems impossible. I have tons of games in Virtual Console and I have to pay a small fee to get the Wii U versions and full price to get the 3DS versions.

@danny2kd Vita upscales the PSP games perfectly in my opinion. Ghost of Sparta is one of my favorites of the series.

Neat. I got the first GOW as a PS Plus freebie, so I wonder if that will count?

My copy arrived today. We'll see how good it is...

EDIT: It's good. Frustrating at the beginning (couldn't figure out how to beat triple Serpent monster), but once you get in the swing of things and the type of thinking needed to figure things out, it all comes together nicely. My first GoW trophy was titled "Im Getting My A** Kicked". Which unfortunately kind of set the tone for my next hour or so of gameplay.
