That is great news, makes up for the lack of gow3 news for the last couple of months.

Stig A said that he wasnt aware of the gow collection on bluray...i guess he lied. oh well

Brilliant. I'll certainly be getting this. I just hope the European version won't have the guy in the fucking cage censored out again.

Wow the funny thing is just the other day I hooked up my ps2 to my HDTV to play GoW 1 and 2 since I have yet to beat them and just couldn't do it because of how bad they looked on my tv. Guess I can just pick up the Blu-Ray versions now! SWWWWEEEEEETTTTTTTT!!

(Gow1 and 2 diretor cut).

EDK1010 said...

wow... im replaying gow 1 right now... well im still gonna buy this. the fact that it is in HD now with some-what updated graphics, 60 fps, and trophies... means 1st day buy 4 me.

Now the image will take up the entire screen! Yay!

Oh and Bruno, how's the game coming? Make any new things?

A few questions:

Should the new versions eliminate the tearing that was in the originals?

Is this an emulation or a port?

What are the details of the AA that is being applied?

Are there going to be any other changes(i.e. cutscene models being used in gameplay, reworked textures, new scenarios, etc.)?

Thank you and I hope all is going well with 3!

Hey Bruno..

Will the collection feature a demo of God of War III?
Why is both games (GOW, GOW2) on one disc insted of two? I have to admit I would prefer two discs insted of one..

Dennis said...

This is fantastic news (my PS2 died a month back ^_^)Will these come bundled with GOW3 collector's edition?

Anonymous said...

would we get any extended fights?
more enemies on screen?

Hey everyone, I'm glad to hear that you guys are happy the upcoming GOW Collection. This will be a Blue Ray disk for PS3 with both GOW and GOW2 at 720p resolution and Thropy support. Some of our designers have come up with some really challenging thropies to acquire. I have seen both games running and I have to say that they are very smooth and the graphics hold up quite well even for Ps2 games. GOW2 looks even better than the secret HD mode that was in the orirginal disk. Screen tearing like before is gone and the framerate was silky smooth with no sings of slowdown.

We are still working hard on part 3as well and I hope I can share with you something new in the upcomming months. Everything that we set out to do has made it in the game so far and I can't wait to hear your feedback.

Thanks for the responses.

is the release date: 11/10/09?

Bruno Velazquez said...

Hey guys, here ae some answers:

No European release info yet as far as I know.

Besides the new Thropies, the games will be the same as the original releases.

I agree with you guys on the purple color of Hades Blades. Nothing is final until the game ships and you gys are playing it at home.

Keep the feedback comming!!

I own the original games, but I'll probably get this anyway. It'll give me a good reason to replay the games (probably for the 10th time).

Just one question - are the beautiful CGI cinematics going to be 1080p/720p? I've also read at IGN that all of the extra content from the original discs will be included, will they be HD as well?

Thanks!

awesome characters bruno. any other secrets? I feel kinda bad that all the surprises are being spoiled so soon

Jack said...

Nice find EDK1010. But I don't feel too bad because it seems like the new characters that are revealed in this link aren't that major. Real suprises that I hope they don't spoil too much of would be weapons, magic, unexpected boss fights, unexpected levels, etc. Also, if any characters from the other games that are supposed to be dead (Ares, Athena, etc.) make a return, I really hope they don't spoil those kind of major suprises that have a lot to do with the story.

Rock on Santa Monica!

MARCH 2010!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!

"I agree with you guys on the purple color of Hades Blades. Nothing is final until the game ships and you gys are playing it at home."

The purple isn't too bad if its done right. The background of gow3forums.com looks pretty sick with it. I think the purple will grow on me if its anything like that.

Jack said...

About the purple blades,

I will say that in the screenshots they do look a little off; the color seems to clash with Hades orange-glowing face.

However, this is just a screenshot. In motion and in relation to the environment it could all make perfect sense and fit very well. Either way, I'm sure you guys will figure it out and the final product will be sublime.

P.S. While we are on the subject of color schemes, I thought I should praise the darker direction in tone you guys are taking. Love it. Love the use of more black and dark, blood-red! (I noticed how enemies disappear into black mist after they have been defeated in the demo - very cool. I hope you keep that in the final game.)

P.P.S. - While we're on the subject of the demo, I thought I'd also say that some of the camera work is highly inventive (zoom back into a room for some reason, why am I here?, what's that?, some kind of snake?, oh snap! it's a chimera, then zoom back in! Good stuff!) I also like how Kratos looks heavier, meaning less like a plastic toy and more like flesh in blood. Awesome improvement!

Rock on Santa Monica!
