So, Sony has completed negated any possibility of PS2 backwards compatibility in future versions of the PlayStation 3. This would cut off gamers from experiencing two of the greatest games released in the last generation – God Of War and God of War II right? This isn’t the case anymore. Sure, you could go buy a PS2 and the games, but thanks to a survey conducted earlier this year, you could just wait for the God Of War Collection, coming this Holiday season to your PlayStation 3.
This is not just a repackaged Blu-ray bundle of the PS2 games. Both games have been remastered to display in 720p resolution with anti-aliasing graphics and be locked at 60 frames per second. Sony has also confirmed trophy support for both games.
The best part of this collection? Rather than charge consumers the full $59.99, Sony has elected to have a MSRP of $39.99, sure to be appreciated when the Holiday game blitz is in full effect.
While a God Of War III demo would have made this an instant pick-up for anyone with a PS3, one can’t help but shake the feeling Sony is testing a PS2 re-release market. The God of War games are surely worth the price, but when you start out with the best, you have nowhere else to go but down.
