God Of War PS4 Gets Congratulations From Fellow Game Studios

Congratulatory tweets abound.


God of War launches today, and fellow developers are lining up to give Sony Santa Monica a pat on the back for the achievement. A series of tweets from studios like Insomniac and Naughty Dog have been offering their congratulations, some with custom artwork or cheeky photos to mark the event.

The revival of the long-dormant franchise has received critical acclaim, including from GameSpot's own God of War review. All of that has made it the highest-scoring PS4 exclusive on our sister site Metacritic. And in a moment of reaching across the console divide, Xbox boss Phil Spencer was among the first to offer his own congratulations last week as reviews first started breaking. In a nice reminder that real humans pour their blood and sweat into these games, game director Cory Barlog recorded an emotional video of himself seeing the review scores for the first time.
