God of War Collection strikes PS3 Nov. 17

High-def one-two punch of PS2 blockbusters arrives in stores next month; each game to have its own slate of trophies.


While game publishers frequently use the holiday release window for their biggest titles of the year, next month Sony will focus on its biggest games of previous years. The company today announced that God of War Collection, a high-def compilation of the first two God of War games, will debut on the PlayStation 3 November 17.

The games' 720p visual overhaul won't be the only new feature enticing gamers to trek through Kratos' first two adventures again. Sony is also including a full slate of trophies for each game. Each copy of the game will also include a code to download a demo of God of War III from the PlayStation Network months before the full game's March release.

When it launched on the PlayStation 2 in 2005, the first God of War drew critical accolades and commercial success, selling more than 2.4 million units in the US alone. In 2007, God of War II drew similar high praise from reviewers and sold nearly 2 million units domestically despite being on a legacy platform. A PSP prequel, God of War: Chains of Olympus, has sold more than 800,000 units domestically since its 2008 debut.

A full list of the trophies for God of War Collection is available on Sony's official PlayStation blog.
