God of War Collection Coming to Blu-ray This Holiday

Remember that survey back in April in which Sony asked fans to rate possible bonus items for a God of War III Collector’s Edition? If you participated, rest assured, your voice was heard!

When the survey hit, many fans screamed at the top of their lungs from high atop Mount Olympus begging for a Blu-ray compilation of the first two God of War games from the PS2. Sony has listened, today announcing the God of War Collection.

With the God of War Collection — now a standalone compilation rather than a Collector’s Edition bonus — Sony is doing much more than just dumping the original PS2 versions onto a Blu-ray and calling it a day. Both games have been remastered in 720p HD 1280 x 720 resolution with anti-aliased graphics running at a constant 60 frames per second. Better still, PSN trophies will be supported as well, making the compilation even more attractive to returning fans of the originals.

“We are excited today to announce God of War Collection,” said Scott Rohde, vice president, Worldwide Studios America. “Our fans spoke and we listened; thanks to our partnership with Bluepoint Games, fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic God of War and God of War II saga in stunning 720p on PS3. This Blu-ray Disc compilation brings Kratos to PS3 even earlier than expected.”

God of War Collection will be released this holiday season for $39.99.
