God of War III Survey Hints At PS2 Games On Blu-ray

Sony Computer Entertainment America is soliciting PlayStation fan opinion on what would make for the "perfect" God of War III Collector's Edition, including the option to get the PlayStation 2 entries on Blu-ray disc.

Frankly, that's the most interesting aspect of the survey, which asks potential God of War III buyers what they'd drop the extra cash on for the PlayStation 3 exclusive. The options include your standard fare—t-shirts, figurines, "Making Of" documentaries and art books—but it's the possibility of backwards compatibility on the PS3 that's noteworthy.

The survey also makes mention of a "God of War and God of War II cinematic movie compilation," which Sony could fall back on if getting God of War and God of War II to play on the no longer backwards compatible console proves too daunting.

We suppose that if Sony could offer PlayStation 2 software on a game-by-game basis like this, it could be worth their while. Say, if they could then sell last-gen games via the PlayStation Store or even patches that would make disc-based versions playable on the PS3 via software emulation.

We'd advise everyone taking the survey to rank "God of War and God of War II on Blu-ray disc" as "most important," just so we can see where they're going with this.

Here's the full list of CE options for those who weren't surveyed.

  • Full game soundtrack
  • Comic book/Graphic novel
  • Exclusive packaging
  • God of War and God of War II on Blu-ray disc
  • God of War and God of War II cinematic movie compilation
  • Art book
  • T-shirt
  • Collectible items
  • Access to exclusive downloadable content
  • Behind-the-scenes/"Making of" featurettes
  • Developer commentary

Thanks to the horde of PlayStation fans who sent this in! You can stop now!


    I don't want GoW 1 and 2 on BD unless it's got updated graphics and extra features. I've still got the originals and a PS2 and I've got the backwards compatible 60GB PS3 anyway. Although it is a good idea for people that haven't played them before.

    If they do decide to pack in an extra disc with GoW 1 and 2 on it they should also pack in a soundtrack for the whole trilogy, not just for GoW 3. I'm seriously hangin' out for this game though.

    As for downloadable PS2 games. It's only a matter of time. As soon as they stop selling new PS2's they'll start releasing PS2 games on the PSN. Let's face it they already sell full PS3 games on there.

    GREAT idea!!!

    I want GoW1&2 on Blu-ray. I also want a PS3 port of chains of olympus on blu-ray.

    Do it all! I dare ya!

    That's a great idea, I can't believe I didn't think of that. I don't have a PSP and haven't played Chains of Olympus yet so if they did a PS3 port of that as a pack in for the special edition of GoW 3 that would be a must buy for me.

    Oh yeah, Chains of Olympus for those of us who don't have a PSP...still waiting for the PS2 port like Yahtzee told us to :P
