God of War: Ascension PS3 bundle includes all six games

New $350 500GB garnet red system to launch in March featuring 30-day PS Plus membership and all God of War games to date.

Sony is marking the return of Kratos with an all-new, game-stuffed system bundle. The company today announced the $350 God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle, which features a 500GB garnet red system (with matching controller), a copy of God of War: Ascension, and the God of War Saga.

This includes God of War, God of War II, God of War III, and the God of War: Origins Collection (which includes PSP games God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta).

In addition, the God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle includes a 30-day trial membership to PlayStation Plus.

The bundle will be available day-and-date with God of War: Ascension on March 12.

Sony just last weekend launched a 500GB white PS3 model, marking the first time Sony had ever released a PS3 in any color other than black in the United States or Canada.

The God of War series has sold over 21 million units worldwide since it launched in March 2005. God of War: Ascension is a prequel to the original, and is the first entry in the franchise to feature a multiplayer component. A trailer for the game will play during the online Super Bowl XLVII stream this weekend.

How do you get god of war chains of Olympus and ghost of Sparta? My brother and I cant seem to figure out how to get it. Cause it only came with 3 discs.

New inferior model and color are the signs that PS4 is on its way.

By looking at the past, I predict the future.

I prefer PS3 white but i guess red fits the theme

It looks really ugly, i don't really like that color.  A darker red or blue, would have been a better choice of color.

PS+ is great, reminds me of magazines and demos in the 90's except its full games

I've had the original 80GB model for a while...I don't like having so low memory. I finally have a good reason to get a newer one. This will be mine. Even though I'm getting Ascension CE and I have Saga it doesn't matter, I can easily sell both of those together for at least $80 which puts this system at 270...perfectly fine for me.

Wow, that system looks like a big slab of plastic. Why don't you use PS3 slim instead of this cheap looking thing Sony?

Great deal!  That's a lot of great games.

This is not a deal at all. There is no reason why this should be $350. It should be $300 at most. The saga collection is not worth the extra $50. It only costs $40 by itself.

My ps3 died awhile back, this is the perfect bundle to get me to buy another.

For anyone coming late to the PS3, this is a good deal.

I bought my PS3 for God of War 3 (other games too!) and this looks like an awesome deal for anyone who doesnt own a PS3 or played any of the GoW games.

Does this system use less power  than the old fat ones? If yes, I'm tempted to sell my fat one on ebay and pick this one up.

lol $350 ? isnt a wiiu 350 ,,  and  people think next gen consoles outside wiiu is going to be cheap? lol

Don't suppose there's any chance of them selling just the GoW bundle without a PC3 attached?

@pound-u It comes with Ascension. $300 for PS3, Ascension at a $10 discount, and Saga free.

@Biggs613 in the same boat there. I love god of war and since my psp copy of the games is gone. I have a good reason to get this

@Tabain i am fairly positive that they dont have the "PC3" attached actually not an "PC" attached

@Meta-Gnostic @pound-u That's not a good way of looking at it. Other bundles include the game for free, then they are telling us that Saga collection is worth the extra $50? It's a poor deal, plain and simple.

@luqmanr @jayjay444 Because it probably won't be BC and he wants to play the great PS3 games still coming out like GoW, Last of Us, and Beyond.

@DarkNeoBahamut @mariokart64fan 

Yeah, and? The god of war saga collection is a bunch of old games, and it only costs $40. The Assassin's Creed 3 bundle was only $300. The saga collection should be a throw in.

pound-u

@Meta-Gnostic @pound-u LOL, you don't know anything. Why didn't the Assassin's Creed III bundle include the cost of AC III? The Uncharted 3 bundle? The Infamous 2 bundle? The NHL 13 bundle? ANY Sony bundle before this one? Microsoft is a crap example because they love price-gauging. Sony has always included the game in free, genius. Nice try.

@faceless-mask Umm, no. You are just making excuses for this bad deal. Sony already set the precedent with previous bundles. ACIII bundle as a recent example. The only thing that's extra in this is The Saga Collection and that's supposed to make up that extra $50, when by itself it's $40, or even less when on sale? Sorry, but this isn't a good deal, and you are just making excuses for Sony's horrible marketing.

faceless-mask

@pound-u @DarkNeoBahamut @mariokart64fan I mean, if you buy each component individually, the total cost can range from 400-500 dollars. 300 for the PS3, 60 for Ascension, 40 for the Saga Collection, or if you want, then a total of 80-100 dollars for all of the games. Not the saga collection. So, why should they throw in the saga collection for free? 

faceless-mask
faceless-mask

@pound-u @DarkNeoBahamut @mariokart64fan The AC3 bundle gave you exactly 1 game, that being AC3, and the 30 day membership. This bundle offers GoW Ascension, the 30 day membership, and every single other GoW game till date, 2 of which were released 2 years ago (3 if you want, since it's 2013). They've basically thrown in GoW, GoW2 and GoW Chains of Olympus in for free.
