218w ago - Just before the weekend we caught a glimpse of some EyePet PS3 gameplay video footage.
Sadly, both Gamestop and Amazon have now pushed the launch date of EyePet back.
GamerVision (linked above) has received confirmation from Sony that EyePet will indeed miss the holiday release in North America.
To quote from the official response: "The North American territory has decided to take additional time to focus on the EyePet product and can confirm it will not be available this holiday.
EyePet is an innovative and exciting new IP to the PS3 platform and SCEA marketing will spend additional time to continue educating consumers and retail channels, setting the table for a successful product launch.
We will provide more details on an updated launch timeframe very soon."
223w ago - Update: The official boxart is now added below, and those interested can pre-order God of War: Collection for $39.99 from Amazon.com.
SCEA Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo announced today that the God of War Collection - Blu-ray Disc Compilation will be available this holiday season.
To quote: The fans spoke and we listened. For those that recall the God of War survey conducted earlier this year, an overwhelming amount of the community suggested the PlayStation 2 experiences of Kratos be brought forth to the PlayStation 3.
Thanks to your feedback, we are excited to announce the God of War Collection for this Holiday Season. Now fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic journey of God of War and God of War II in 720p HD form. Both titles have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PS3 system. Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc compilation will bring the PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.
This is your chance to experience God of War is its true form before the chaos of God of War III hits store shelves come March 2010.
