Sony Computer Entertainment America announced God of War Collection, a PlayStation 3 compilation containing God of War and God of War 2 running at 720p with anti-aliased graphics. Fancy jargon for a crisper and more fluid looking game.
But, God of War Collection is more or less the same two PS2 games with trophies. Bluepoint Games, the studio behind Blast Factor for PlayStation Network, is handling the work.
The God of War Collection announcement also shows that Sony and Bluepoint Games have a system ready to remaster and visually improve PlayStation 2 games. Sony’s God of War series may be an exception since it’s critically acclaimed and a commercial success, but Sony could remaster and re-release other PlayStation 2 and perhaps PSP hits.
Imagine Dark Cloud 2 or Dissidia: Final Fantasy remastered as budget PS3 games. Would you buy them?
