God of War Collection rages on PSN

Compilation of Kratos' first two outings goes downloadable for PS3 alongside November 2 launch of Ghost of Sparta.

On November 2, Sony will release God of War: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP, a new saga in the series set between the events of the first two God of War titles. Gamers interested in refreshing their memories on those two titles will soon have a new way to do that on November 2, as Sony today announced that will also mark the downloadable debut of the God of War Collection for the PlayStation 3.

Released in stores last November, God of War Collection compiles the original PlayStation 2 hits God of War and God of War II, porting them to the PS3 and giving both a 720p HD makeover in the process. The package also added PS3 trophies to the game and included some bonus content videos. While the downloadable version of the God of War Collection will still support trophies, the bonus content and extras from the Blu-ray release of the game will be absent.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Kratos is determined to get at that sucker one way or another.

Launched at retail for $40, the God of War Collection has since seen its price cut to $30. Sony did not specify how much the game would sell for when it arrives on the PlayStation Network storefront.

Ghost of Sparta still amazes me that it has graphics on level or even better than atleast 75% of ps2 games.

Do not have to download it already have the disk. It isn't the easiest game but its worth it if you do not already own it.

@Sirbobislost Was it due to playing it so much? Or was it the unbelievable frustration it can cause when played on the higher difficulty settings? Because the amount of times it caused me to want to fling my PSP out of the window was just unreal! lol. Still loved it tho. Can't wait for Dissidia 2!!!

I never owned the first 2 but my bro got me the collection last week. Quite good games. I admire the level of effort that went into their development.

Still have my PS2 versions and I really do not see the reason to buy again just to have it in HD. If you do not have the games or are new to the series go get the disk, it is 25 bucks at any store. Use your hard drive space on games you can get only online.

For collection purposes, I'd rather buy the disc... which I already did before God Of War 3 came out. Yey!

They should make a package so we can get the collection plus Ghost of Sparta. Just an idea.

HD makeovers are all well and good, seriously couldnt wait to see Prince of Pershia trilogy to hit PSN, but now after playing MoH frontline which came free with the new MoH last week, there is no way i'll be ever spending money on any of it. CLASSIC GAMES OF OLD SHOULD ALL COME FREE WITH NEW RELEASES....STANDARD!!!!!

OK $30 for BOTH GAMES! This is such a good price.... if you haven't played this buy it. If you have (like me) then buy it again in 720p. Then play some more God of War III after you've refreshed your memory and get ready for God of War: Ghost of Sparta.

This is good for those who didn't buy the collection.
