Should anyone from Sony Santa Monica get smited during the developer's celebratory God of War livestream, it'll probably have something to do with the price of God of War III Remastered, which was announced earlier today. Due out in July on the PlayStation 4, the refresh seemed like it might be a budget release – but the platform holder's charging $39.99 for it in the United States.
This is in line with other remasters, of course, but it doesn't seem like the manufacturer's put quite as much effort into this one. For starters, you'll only get the one game – albeit it in 1080p resolution – and additional changes appear few and far between. It's thrown in a Photo Mode, but don't expect any DmC: Definitive Edition-style Turbo toggles.
Yes, you'll get all of the original DLC content and costumes, but we can't help but feel that this should either come with God of War: Ascension – or be priced a lot lower. Sure, we accept that The Last of Us Remastered didn't come with a whole lot extra either, but you couldn't buy the PlayStation 3 version of that game for $2.99 when it came out. God of War III, you can.
