Announced at the Gamestop managers conference. Both games, on a bluray, remastered in 720p at 60fps with added trophies AND it's only $40.

*golf clap* finally they use their damn heads. Get people ready for GoW III next spring.

I've not played a console GoW game, how do they compare to the PSP version? I was all for that but it turns out to be short and repetitive.

Same game, just longer. Things work a better with the second stick too.

Me either, but I know I'll be getting GoW3, so I might as well get these games too! Sweet!

Wished they did the same with ICO, SoTC, Primal and Mark of Kri...I would buy them in a heartbeat. I'll be getting this package as well, its about time someone followed the Nintendo way and bring out the old games with waggle or in this case higher res.

I wish the MGS collection that came out a bit before MGS4 was on blu-ray, instead of just being PS2 games...

GoW3 looks mental. I may even buy a PS3 to play it.

Ok but these are PS2 games. Why are they not going to be running at 1080p. So much for FULL HD Support Sony :rolleyes:



Would buy them, but already have both on PS2 and my PS3 upscales them anyway.... so I wont be.....

Before reading the link, I thought you meant Gears of War.

Then (Still without reading it) I came to the conclusion you meant God of War.
Then I confirmed that :P.

Given the previous system these were on it's not much to expect full HD support.
On a sidenote I'm all for these modern ports. I'd certainly rebuy the best of last gen, updated for modern consoles (Halo 1 in 1080p. F-Zero GX and Windwaker with motion controls. Oh and FFX-XII on PSP please :p).

Looks like I will finally get around to playing these after all. :)

Now, Shadow of the Colossus, PLEASE!!!! :eek:

The title of this thread is VERY accurate... They really seem to be making a lot of NON-BONEHEAD decisions these days. That is a sharp contrast to when the system first came out. Maybe they realize they can no longer be cocky...

So I will definitely be picking this up. I'm quite excited for it.

I would love it if they would release ALL of the MGS games on one Blu-Ray as well. They would definitely fit. I don't even care if you upscale them. Just let me beat them all, since I don't have PS2 compatibility and this is my first Sony console i've owned.

Whats with the pic, you calling me FAT ? ;)

Knock a couple of stone off, I'm PS3 slim man and you know it :p:p:p:p

:D:D




But yeah I am serious, if my PS3 can upscale GOW 1&2 to 1080p, surely what can't the repackaged blu-ray version do the same ? Just doesn't make sense at all.

God of War came first, so it deserves to be called GoW :P. And then there is the fact that I doubt Gears of War would be released on Blu-Ray.

Then HP owns the right to use i before products, and tell all those people calling the iPod touch an "iTouch" that the EPOS software under the same name came first ;).
I guess it just depends on what is more, grah, "popular".

Maybe their putting a little more effort into the "touch up" than it appears and that might be the cause of not scaling it to full 1080p. Either way I'll be getting them because I don't have GoW1/2 for the PS2 anymore and its a steal of a deal.

So, if this GoW Collection does well (and I have a feeling it will), what other "Collections" do you think could follow?

Here's my guesses:

- Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 (wouldn't do anything for me, but there are lots of fans)

- Team Ico Collection (I can dream, right?)

- GTA Collection

- Ratchet & Clank Collection

- Final Fantasy Collection?

- Tony Hawk Collection (Parts 1-3, I would love that!)


Some of these are a bit of a stretch, but I wouldn't say it's impossible...

GoW = God Of War
GeOW = Gears of War

MRU, nice to see you are back to your old self ;)

There already was a GTA collection on the PC (or on Steam at least, I hases it!). I'd definitely go for a Final Fantasy, Tony Hawk and Team Ico collection.

FFI-VI and VII-X on the PSP,
FFXI and XII for the PS3.
Would just make my day.

IF I owed a PS# this would be a must buy as I haven't played through GoWII.

IF Sony makes plans to have more of these (especially a Team ICO one) and I fall into some money, I may have to buy a PS3.

The collection is also includes a demo of GOWIII which just made this package an instant buy for me.
