    Fans and newcomers to the series can experience the epic journey of God of War and God of War II in 720p HD form. Both titles have been remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PS3 system. Additionally, the Blu(e) ray Disc compilation will bring the PlayStation Network (PSN) trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.

    Wow, that is awesome.

    Wonder if this will be packaged with GoW3 as a special edition?

    Maybe as a bundle later, but at the moment its stand alone. But, it's still freaking awesome.

    Holy shit, I can't believe it! THIS is exactly the kind of move that special editions need to make.

    Brilliant. They've got my money, guaranteed!

    I just hope they release it in Europe (I know I can still import), but they really should....

    Would be so cool if they did the same for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus before The Last Guardian gets released....

    Wow, I thought this was just some bullshit rumour.

    I never did finish GoW2, I will definitely be getting this to play through both of them in HD and refresh the story in preparation for part 3.

    Very nice move for Sony, this will certainly shift a few copies.

    And Sony thinks people don't want BC on the PS3 anymore but then do this?!

    Bullshit, I own both games already and would love to play through them again upscaled on my PS3. I don't want to have to pay for it.

    Sure it's great if you didn't own the originals but if you do tis a bit shit. Just implement software BC somehow you bastards!

    Your missing the point. Trophies Yo. I own both games, but 60FPS and anti-aliasing, wow...I'd happily buy this again.

    It's really little more than God of War for people without backwards compatible consoles if upscaling is all they're doing, my PS3 already runs the US versions just fine.

    They'll be taking the piss if they charge anymore than budget price for this.

    I can really appreciate that bitterness, if I could get BC on my PS3 I could buy all of these games tomorrow morning for peanuts. :/ It pisses me off to no end. (Well, not really, but it pisses me off a bit though...)

    backslash oh forwardslash for the win!

    I've got GoW1 already on a BC PS3 but would rather have a spruced up uberversion, I find PS2 games look a bit bollocks via the BC anyway.

    Doesn't sound like they're upscaling - I got the impression that these versions will actually render the game at 720p with AA at 60fps. That sounds amazing if true, as these are probably the two best-looking PS2 games and with the resolution increase and additional effects should be quite pleasing to the eye even in 2009.

    "remastered with anti-aliased graphics" sounds like more than just upscaling to me.

    Still, not really worth buying if you've got the PS2 versions and a BC PS3 console.
