Was just about to post this, Great little Bonus!

I thought they'd do this just before the release of the new God of War game. Seeing this post has made my day, heat added

WOW! 'GOW' download this now!

Seems like Sony and Xbox are waging a war on downloadable games at the minute! All the better for us.

Nice

anyone know if it has separate trophies to the Japanese one? cant hurt to download and find out though i guess

Always loved the look of it, but never really liked these style of games. Need to try to get into it. Noes my chance :-)

Sony also offer sale items as well which are yours to keep, MS don't offer a £40 (£30 if you get the deals) a year rental system giving you access to lots of top games and some only months after release though.

Fair enough Mr Factually Correct. Just saying that it's a crazy time in the downloadable games market. Wonder whether Nintendo will join the act?

My PS3 was gathering dust for quite some time but since I subscribed to Playstation Plus in May of last year its been awesome. Playstation Plus hands down is the BEST console subscription service anywhere.

I have an Xbox too which I do alot of my gaming on. Xbox live in terms of customer rewards has been obliterated by Plasystation Plus. Simply fantatstic

This. I wish I felt like I was actually getting something for my Xbox Live sub. I always um and ah about whether to continue it (before always renewing, grudgingly), but PS+ was a no brainer as soon as I got a Vita. It's made me want to track down a PS3!

Can't really compare £30 or £40 a year for Live and £30 or £40 a year for PS+ can you.
Do love Xbox fanboys trying to justifty their outlay.

I don't even know why I wade into these pointless discussions, but seeing as I always have done (right back to the SNES/MegaDrive debate) I might as well add my ten pence.

I am currently a much bigger fan of the xbox in general, than I am of the PS3. My PS3 is a glorified bluray player 95% of the time and I onyl use it for exclusives, if even that, because I have relatively limited time. What clinched my loyalty to the xbox was through the achievements system, which (because of the community of other players I am in) feels more important, more relevant and more rewarding than the PS trophy system.

All of that said and despite the fact that I spend almost all of my gaming time using Microsoft's system, there is NO SHADOW OF A DOUBT that Sony's PS and PS+ offering is far better value than the Microsoft equivalent. Some things are not a matter of opinion, they are just fact.... Getting something for nothing (PSN used to be nothing for nothing so XBB Gold made sense) is always better than getting less for similar money - which is what Gold is now compared to PS+

The two free services again don't compare. With PSN you can play your games. With XBL Silver you can't play online.

I absolutely assure you all that if Microsoft don't correct this inbalance in the next gen (and in particular if they come to market after PS4) then Sony will win the next round as comprehensively (if not more so) than Microsoft won this one (if we all pretend that the Wii didn't exist that is.)

There probably will be in time - probably getting developed as we speak but not been announced yet. Cannot wait because PSP games were brilliant. At a push, Ghost of Sparta is my favourite GOW.

I know what you mean. Mine is due for renewal end of march and I'm also uming and erring. Really tempted to buy a Vita now too and before PS plus this was nowhere near my radar.

It is likely that for the next generation, Sony will move to the same system Microsoft employ today; online play will be subscription-based. They won't make the same mistake again. For every person that says they went with Playstation because online gaming was free, there are five people who say they are happy to pay for XBL because it offers a much better experience. I am one of the people who chose Playstation, primarily because I believe if I pay for my console, my game and my ISP then I don't think I should be paying out again to play that game online. Years of PC gaming will do that to you. Unfortunately, XBL has been a huge hit and for some reason, people can't see they're being fleeced. Fully expect Sony to capitalise on this as Microsoft have done, it's bad business not to.

Is this just the first? I bought GOW1/2 HD a while back. Great to see Sony doing stuff like this.

Hot!!!

It is the first God of War only, yes.

They also hinted that other GOW HD games will be discounted next week.

Sweet. Will purchase online and play when I get a PS3 X)

Hoping for £99.99 price drop hah

Awesome! I've been wanting to play the HD version of this and have recently subscribed to PlayStation Plus.

I would triple check the terms and conditions of sale of DRM content from Microsoft agreement to be absolutely sure they are not.

give a pointer from my own deal to this one .. worthy of having some heat

Are you not "renting" the online aspect of every one of your Xbox 360 games with a Gold membership...

Nice one thanks.

Xbox users aren't being fleeced in my mind. I have both PS3 and Xbox 360. My PS3 gets less gaming attention than my xbox and this is purely down to the online. My PS3 is for BluRay films and exclusives. A 12 month XBLive sub costs on average £30 if you shop around, and for this I'm getting a much better online experience, dedicated servers, the party chat function is simple but genius and I feel more secure buying stuff through XBL. So for an average 57p a week I'm getting a more enjoyable experience that I have confidence in (remember Sony closing PSN off due to maintenance on MW3 launch day??? For 3 days???? Oh dear). BUT I also agree that Sony looked to have stepped their online service up with regard to the PS4 so Microsoft really need to deliver on their announcement of next gen, but I have no doubt they will. Sony will charge for their online service on PS4 as what they're offering would cost A LOT of money to run and maintain. Sony have always been well behind the times in the Online service factor but maybe they will learn from their mistakes (like adding a party chat feature!!!)

I personally think they will do a three tiered system based on rumours.
Online and chat free
PS+ £40 free games etc
PS+ Extra £60 Free games + gakai

I've got my button bashing fingers ready!

Sony have said they are looking into "tiered subscriptions", but I remain confident that core online play will remain free for everyone and it'll mainly be the Gaikai and social stuff that'll require subscriptions to use.

I would be disappointed if Gakai is not free in some capacity though, i.e. if you have to pay to stream digital games you owned on PS3 (assuming this feature becomes available on PS4) that would be ridiculous frankly.

Because the resale value of GoD makes up for them being 5 times more expensive?

why no GOW for Vita?



This comes with a remote play patch so at least you can do that with it

Is this only playable via PS3 or can I download to Vita too

I am going to a GOW lock in tomorrow night at Game... GOW, free pizza and wall to wall nerds... bliss!
