Combining both God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta is the God of War Origins Collection, an improved HD-enhanced version of the PSP titles for the PS3. Revealed during Sony's E3 2011 keynote, this two-for-one is coming this year and boasts full 3D support.
The God of War franchise has set the bar for the action-adventure genre, selling over 11 million units worldwide and receiving various awards, while enjoying critical acclaim from the videogame industry’s top media. This began in 2005 when Sony Computer Entertainment America’s (SCEA) Santa Monica Studio introduced God of War, a game that won over a dozen ‘Game of the Year Awards.’ Then in 2007, the award-winning development team introduced God of War II, the second chapter of this sprawling odyssey, followed by God of War III in 2010, the franchise’s first title designed for the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) system and one that sold over 1 million copies in its first week of release last March.
In 2008, the adventure moved to the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system with God of War®: Chains of Olympus, a game that is currently the highest rated PSP title of all-time on MetaCritic.com with a score of 91. Developed by Ready At Dawn Studios, in collaboration with SCEA’s Santa Monica team, Chains of Olympus has been praised by fans and critics alike as one of the best portable gaming experiences to date. The same creative team then continued that excellence with God of War®: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP and PSPgo systems, detailing a journey that takes place after the conclusion of God of War, telling the story of Spartan warrior Kratos’ ascension to power as the new God of War. Combining intense action, a fresh storyline, stunning graphics, and depths of scale never-before-seen on the portable platform, Ghost of Sparta was also critically acclaimed, boasting a current MetaCritic.com score of 86.
Now, discover the origins of Kratos with the definitive compilation of God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta on a single Blu-ray disc for the first time! Fully remastered in 1080p and stereoscopic 3-D, players will discover the dark past that continues to haunt the Spartan Warrior, and why he is forced to choose between his own personal redemption and saving the ancient world from destruction.
