Fit for a mortal
It’s perhaps indicative of Sony’s current interest in the PlayStation Vita that its first God of War should be a port of a port. While the PlayStation Portable dined on two exceptional original adventures – both prepared by The Order: 1886 developer Ready at Dawn – the platform holder’s latest handheld is being forced to...
As of today you'll be able to purchase digital download versions of first-party PlayStation content from British stores GAME and GameStation
The brick-and-mortar video games retail institution recently started selling digital PC content in store, and will now stock downloadable versions of PlayStation content such as the God Of War Collection and...
Never played God Of War ever before? Sony's got the perfect solution for you
Popping up on Amazon Germany is a retail listing for the "God Of War Master Collection", a gigantic PS3 collection that includes every God Of War game ever made — aside from that shoddy mobile phone title. If you're having trouble keeping up, that's: God Of War, God Of War II, God Of War III, God Of War: Chai

Sony's announced on the PlayStation Blog this afternoon that the God Of War Collection is set to be released on the PlayStation Store this coming November 3rd (2nd in the US)
The collection, which includes remastered versions of God Of War and God Of War II, will be available for £23.99; while both games will be available individually for £13.99. There's no US pricing information available yet..
Playstation users have been sent a survey asking which titles they'd like to see "in a future collection"; a la God Of War Collection
The survey notes: "What titles would you like to see in a future collection (2 or more PS2 titles upgraded with similar features to God of War Collection)?" Our response - Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus. Beyond that? Tombi. Remember Tombi? (Also: Final..
EA's excellent World Cup soccer-sim, 2010 Fifa World Cup, has topped the British sales charts this week, a position it's unlikely to stray far from as the worlds biggest sporting event nears
It beat out the other big release of last week - Super Steet Fighter IV - which managed to debut in second-position. It's pretty much as you were elsewhere on...
If you're worrying about your order for the God Of War Trilogy being cancelled, then you can stop now
There's no real need to worry, but there is the need to be annoyed. Apparently, Sony's yet to work out the retail partners that will be distributing the God Of War Trilogy special edition. I.e. not all shops will be stocking the product, hence your cancelled order. Still, Sony say the pack will..
SEGA's Yakuza 4 has topped the Japanese software charts for this week, shifting a hearty 384,000 copies
The numbers are a little lower than those of Yakuza 3, but still extremely respectable. Elsewhere, the God Of War Collection managed to place 13th in the Japanese software charts this week, with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 not far behind it in 15th.
SCEE announced earlier that they will release a God Of War Trilogy boxset in European regions that's set to include both God Of War III and the remastered God Of War Collection
The pack's due to release at the end of April and will be package up in this pretty little boxset. Neat, huh?
Sony's just announced that the God Of War Collection - a single PS3 blu-ray containing remastered versions of God Of War I & II - will launch in the UK on April 30th (28th for mainland Europe)
Very strange for SCEE to release the game so late after God Of War III but, better late than never, right? Sony also confirmed that a "trilogy boxset" will launch in the same window, containing..
Imagine the scene: you're climbing up Mount Olympus on the back of Gaia
You're in pursuit of Zeus and the Gods of Olympus. Gonna rip their heads off and stuff. Ahead of you, a legion of skeletal enemies approach you. You dip into the sack resting uneasily on your shoulder and... Lob pixie dust at them. Well it could have happened, as the iconic design for Kratos nearly wasn't so... iconic. One of..
VG247 are reporting this morning that SCEE intend to release the God Of War Collection separately in the UK, outside of the God Of War III Ultimate Collection
They were coy on dates however. It really feels like SCEE have dropped the ball with the God Of War Collection. Not only is it effectively a means of printing money from a game already released, but it serves as an excellent promotional tool..
£110 sounds expensive but, let's take a breather and remember what you're getting in the God Of War III Ultimate Trilogy Edition: three games (God Of War III, plus God Of War I & II remastered), a ton of extra PSN content (skins, characters, challenge modes), a full length documentary, two audio CDs, exclusive artwork, and a replica of Pandora's Box
Phew. So, SCEE has confirmed that the full..
SCEE has announced a lovely little God Of War III collector's edition heading to Europe this March
The pack includes, obviously, God Of War III and the recently US-only God Of War Collection among a host of other lucious goodies. The pack includes (deep breath): God of War III God of War Collection Extra PSN game content (God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven..
So, you're all excited, you've bought Sony's God Of War Collection and it's really fun but - oh, it's frozen
That's the problem some people appear to be having on the Playstation Forums. While the issue doesn't appear to be widespread (and is mainly only affecting original launch 60GB consoles), it's probably something Sony will want to address as soon as possible. We're waiting on official word..
Word up to one and all, we'll be taking a trip back in time to the Renaissance this week
Will you? PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Assassin's Creed II (EU/USA) Ubisoft's biggest new IP of the generation returns for a second dose in the renaissance period this week across Europe and the US. Looks like Ubisoft have really stepped up the...
Stephen Peterson knows his God Of War, and thus he'd like to give you some advice on how to get the "15 Minute Fight Scene" trophy in the upcoming God Of War Collection
The game launches next week and if you've had a little break from God Of War for a while, Stephen's advice might be paramount in helping you get those two platinums.
Sony Santa Monica have confirmed that they read a lot of "blog posts" before deciding to port God Of War I & II to Playstation 3
Dare we say, our own piece may have been what sparked Santa Monica into building the God Of War Collection, with more than a 150 comments [we've cleaned up the backend since - Ed] calling for a God Of War re-release on Playstation 3. According to GameHunters, it took..
Sony have finally revealed the hotly anticipated trophy line-up for God Of War Collection, and as expected the game includes two unique platinum trophies
As far as we're aware, it'll be the first Playstation game to ship with two unique platinums on the disc, something that will have trophy fans very excited. Interestingly, the trophies look rather creative. We were expecting the basic "Defeat..
That's totally not a screenshot from God Of War III in case you were wondering, nope, that's a screenshot from the God Of War Collection - Sony's new awesome blu-ray that includes copies of God Of War I & II
Epic. The game's not coming to Europe before Christmas, so you'll have to get your preorder on if you want it. Naturally, we ordered our copy a while back. Eurogamer have more screens.
It's been very quiet on the God Of War front since E3
In fact, dare we say Sony's lead character - Kratos - had slipped to the background behind Nathan Drake and Ratchet. Alas, releasing the God Of War Collection in the US is probably the best piece of marketing Sony have ever done. Not only do they please their fans and bring newcomers into the series — they also get a God Of War game on the..
And by "you guys" we actually mean "us" because, awww, we're European baby
Still, there's always the lovely art of import meaning, if you import the God Of War Collection from the US, chances are you'll have access to that lovely God Of War III demo. If you're Japanese you'll need to pick up inFamous to get access to the demo. Still bemusing to see...
There are few franchises we'd post such dodgy, shaky cam footage for
We're not going to lie. This footage is terrible. But it's God Of War — so it instantly becomes kinda awesome. This God Of War Collection footage shows off the game in a running state on a PS3. We can't really comment on any improvements - it looks gorgeous, but then so did the PS2 version. Fact is, it's working. And we can't..
Ever since the God Of War Collection was announced, many Playstation fans have been very vocal about a second "Playstation 2" compilation - providing Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus on a single blu-ray disc
And 1Up seem to have some dirt to suggest that the project could possibly go ahead. Team Ico's Fumito Ueda said when prompted on the subject:"Initially, I didn't want to consider that,"..
We're already totally stoked about the God Of War Collection - a blu-ray compilation of the original two God Of War games - but now the icing has just truly been spread; as the disc will include the infamous 20-minute God Of War III E3 demo aswell
Dude. It's not a preorder bonus, it's not a store exclusive; the demo will be in every copy of the God Of War Collection. Hell yeah!
Well excuse us while we vent our anger
ARGH. A short interview over at VG247 has confirmed that God Of War Collection will "not be possible" to release in European regions this year. What the hell?! A port of two God Of War games that have already been translated and released in Europe cannot be released in Europe until 2010, even though the American version will be out this year..
Blimey, here's a big story for all you raging trophies addicts: God Of War Collection might feature two platinums
In an interview with IGN, Sony Santa Monica's John Hight has claimed the game may end up with two platinum trophies. Hight claimed that each game will have their own unique sets of trophies. Certainly lots of fun for completionists. Other noteworthy points from the interview were Hights..
We'd like to take some credit for this news
Way back in March we broke the news that Sony were planning to bundle copies of God Of War I and II as a preorder bonus for God Of War III. Given the overwhelming response for that particular bonus on our website, there's no doubt Sony were aware there was a massive demand for a re-release of two of Sony's best games. Hence why they've just announced God..
