God Of War Collection Coming To PSN This November

This is for those of us who don't like to outside or have huge hard drives.

Need to rip off a hydra's head but don't want to go outside? Hey, great, because SCE Santa Monica has an offer just for you. Starting this November 2, the God of War Collection will be available for download on PSN, allowing you to grab both God of War and God of War II from the comfort of your darkened lair.

Unfortunately, there is a slight catch: the digital version of the collection won't have any of the "bonus" content that shipped with the disc-based collection. You'll still have to leave said lair if you want all the stuff that shipped with the bundle, in other words.
 
This news comes straight from the official PlayStation blog, which also reminds us that the latest PSP God of War, God of War: Ghost of Sparta, conveniently hits the same day that this collection will be released. 
 


== TEASER ==This is a small note, but the wording in the post seems to suggest that both titles in the collection might also be sold separately. The pricing for either the collection or each game is still up in the air at the moment, as Sony has yet to announce the details.

The God of War Collection was sort of a big deal when it was released in 2009. SCE went back and upgraded the two PS2-era games' visuals to crisp 720p and added trophy support, paving the way for other studios to do the same with their own older titles. As a bonus, we discovered that the brawlers still hold up and continue to be fun to play years and years after release.

I outsided once, and all I was crabs.

Posted by Elazul

I think Brad just accidentally a outside. Possibly even the whole thing.

Posted by Egge

To outside or not to outside, that is the question...

Posted by Kierkegaard

Since this is God of War, I'm just going to assume that outsiding is eviscerating, bringing intestines that were inside outside. Thinking as much makes all these comments better.  
 
Also, if this is, say, 20-30 bucks I will instantly buy it. my 120 gig needs some space filled.

I got disc version months ago. Brilliant brilliant games. Easily some of the most entertaining action games released in the past 5 years though Gow3 was a bit of  a letdown.

Posted by flannelbeard

neat, although i have the disc already and already platinumed both of them.

Posted by blaakmawf

Yes! Bring on the PS2 re-releases on PSN.

Posted by Digi7alS3lf

If they don't sell those as a pack, i'd buy 2

Posted by OllyOxenFree

I outside once.
 
Never again.

Posted by ThePilgrums

Release more PS2 games on PSN, please. I could go for Okami or the Kingdom Hearts games...

Posted by cooljammer00

Kratos is a cool guy.  Eh outsides and doesn't afraid of anything.

Posted by Lingxor

I outsided and then I was a zombie.

Posted by noe

I think I might try to outside today. Maybe, just maybe.

Posted by Belmont_Shadow
@ThePilgrums: 
 
I fucking second this. If you're gonna get rid of an abandon PS2 BC then re-release PS2 games. Even if it's on PSN and even if they are not redone for PS3 like gow or ico collection. Do something because i have a ton of Ps2 games i would love to play again but can't.

Well I'd probably wait at least twenty minutes before using the bathroom after he does, if I were you. Let's just leave it at that.

I, for one, look forward to a digital download-only future.

Posted by InfamousBIG

Good, I don't wanna outside.

Posted by GT-Man

Can't wait to get it even though I beat GOW3 but can't wait for GOW4! :D
Posted by jamaicanidler

Woot I cannot wait to play these again! TROPHIES!!!
