God of War & Sly Cooper Collections Coming to PS Vita in May
Cory Barlog, Sony Santa Monica Studios: Wait, what? God of War 1 and 2 are coming to Vita? Are you frakking kidding me? YEAAAAHH!!!
All of the work in my career is an important part of making me who I am but the first two ‘God of War’ games were truly the catalysts for a creative A-Bomb… and no small amount of F-Bomb’s too. ‘God of War’ 1 and 2 changed the course of my career forever and nothing could please me more than to see them getting released on the Vita. We did some amazing work with the controls, seamless integration of an epic story into a load-free experience, and now that can be taken with you ANYWHERE!!
While I did not have a direct involvement in the actual process of bringing the epic-ness to the Vita I still feel an amazing connection to the release of these games, and a huge amount of respect for the wizards who made it possible. I would not be writing this if it weren’t for those two blood-soaked PS2 discs.
If you haven’t played the games, never been a better time to check out portable version of the originals that started it all. How much would you pay for this on-the-go awesomeness? A million dollars, right? I would, but that is only because I truly have no concept of money, that’s why no one lets me handle it. I would own the original boulder prop from ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ right now if they did. It would be great but I would be broke. I am sure you can all handle your own money so grab the sweet Vita double pack when it releases with an MSRP of $29.99 on May 6th.
