In honor of the release of God of War: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP, Sony will be giving PS3 gamers the opportunity to download the first two games in the God of War series on their PS3s. God of War Collection, which has been available as a PS3 Blu-ray Disc game, will be uploaded as a downloadable game to the PlayStation Store next month.
The "collection" only includes two games - God of War and God of War II - but they have been completely touched up to take advantage of the PS3's advanced image rendering and HD output capabilities.
Above: All the gruesomeness of classic God of War, with the high-def technology of today. Win-win!
Unfortunately, behind-the-scenes videos and other bonus content that was included on the disc-based version of God of War Collection won't be available digitally. In fact, Sony will be offering both of the games separately instead of as a single download.
Official details on US availability and pricing of the downloadable GoW games hasn't been announced but should be showing up ahead of the launch of the new PSP title. Sony is also planning some God of War-themed goodies for PlayStation Plus subscribers to coincide with the launch, so stay tuned.
