130w ago - Today Marc Turndorf of Ready At Dawn Studios has shared a video spotlighting the God of War: Origins Collection PS3 3D Trailer.
To quote: We are extremely pleased to bring our two God of War titles - God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta - to PS3 with the God of War: Origins Collection!
The move to HD has allowed us to show off the visual fidelity that these games offer in a whole new way. Both titles went through an in-depth re-mastering process to make them shine like never before. One of the features we're truly excited about is the addition of stereoscopic 3D.
Both games look truly awesome with this functionality and the amount of depth in the scenes, the layering and parallax of the backdrops, and the dynamic camera motion throughout really pays off when experienced in all of its 3D splendor. To give you a taste of what this compilation is offering, here's a look at our first trailer...
This collection will also support DualShock controllers so every impact and every bone-crushing moment can now be felt in your hands. This is a huge deal to me personally because a God of War game contains so much over-the-top, heavy hitting action...
161w ago - Today Production Coordinator William Weissbaum has revealed alongside a video the God of War Collection: Lost Atlantis level for PS3, as follows:
With the recent release of God of War: Ghost of Sparta, players now have the opportunity to explore Atlantis on the PSP.
But this isn't the first time Atlantis was going to be featured in a God of War game. Back in 2005, Senior Level Designer Jonathan Hawkins was given his first assignment on God of War II - create an epic experience set in the fabled lost city of Atlantis.
Unfortunately, after months of work, Jonathan's designs had to be cut from the game due to some high-level changes. Afterwards, he went on to create some of the more memorable moments and puzzles in God of War II, such as the heart pounding Grapple Bridge sequence.
In honor of God of War Collection being release in HD on the PSN, we have delved into the Santa Monica Studio archives and found the never-before-seen layouts and sketches of this lost level.
In the video above, Jonathan walks us through his designs and the heartbreak...
163w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo has announced today that God of War: Collection will be hitting PS3 via PlayStation Store on November 2, 2010.
To quote: In 2009, our Spartan Army asked for the God of War and God of War II experience to be brought forth on a single Blu-ray disc for the PlayStation 3.
Almost two years later, we are bringing the same great Epic Adventures of Conquest, Destiny and Revenge directly to you through the PlayStation Store.
For those that need a refresher, God of War: Collection was the first to introduce the God of War and God of War II experience in true 720p HD form.
Both titles were remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PlayStation 3 system. Additionally, it also introduced PSN Trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.
Be sure to keep your eyes glued to the PlayStation Store update on 11/2 as both the God of War: Collection and God of War: Ghost of Sparta experience will be available through the PlayStation Store for the first very time.
*God of War: Collection, God of War HD and God of War II HD PSN versions will not contain bonus material and extras from the Blu-ray....
193w ago - With the new Spartans Stand Tall site showing a storm brewing and God of War - Fate of the Titan unlockable video on the GOW Collection PS3 disc, speculation has begun on what the next title in the series will be.
Sony Santa Monica has stated that while God of War III is the last in the current story arc, it will not be the last game in the series... hinting that the next game will feature a new hero.
What many might not know is that featured on the God of War Collection PS3 disc is a "Fate of the Titan" video that can be unlocked after beating the game on Spartan Mode.
For those who don't mind spoilers, to quote: The video shows present day footage as the narrator (Gai) explains that "All myths need not be from ancient times" as a band of explorers are shown finding and opening Pandora's Temple.
The video ends with Gai saying, "Soon as with all great myths, a new hero will emerge."
It is worth noting that the video says Chronos the Titan lives another thousand years after the first God of War, but Chronos is actually killed in God of War III by Kratos.
Additionally, the skull of Chronos has a hole in it, in the exact same location that Kratos stabs and kills Chronos with the Blade of...
