That's an excellent deal! If you haven't bought any of the games, this is a great time to do so!

Cool, but the origins collection is download only, which will probably prevent me from buying this.

But if you have a PSP/Go, it makes it that much more worth it right?

Vita doesn't do the PSOne games yet (or ever), right?

These are the PS3 HD versions of the Origins games. I don't think they work on portables.

EDIT: Also, can anyone tell me if I should play Origins after 1-3, or is it ok to play before since these games take place before 1 if I'm not mistaken. I don't want to ruin anything. I did that for Dead Space. I played Dead Space Extraction before part 1 and I pretty much knew how it was gonna end.

This is the chronological order, and I totally recommend you to follow it:
1.- GoW Chains of Olympus
2.- GoW I
3.- GoW Ghost of Sparta
4.- GoW II
5.- GoW III

The PSP games were on the God of War Origins Collection for PS3, they were upconverted or remastered to play on PS3. I already own God of War 1-3, would really like Origins, but running out of room on my HDD to store games.

The God of War games thankfully take no HDD space at all.

Okay, thanks!

That makes sense... I guess what didn't seem logical for me was making the HD versions of PSP games downloads versus putting them on a disc in the "Saga".

I agree with someone else that commented to play them by release date. But playing through the main saga and then playing the psp versions won't hurt the story at all.

Don't forget about Betrayal for the mobile phone! That goes in between Ghost of Sparta and God of War 2 and was the first mobile game I actually deemed worthy of a purchase.

And if you're a true stickler for chronology, you'd have to wait for Ascension before playing any of these games. ;)

If you haven't played any yet, I don't see why you wouldn't just wait for the next game to get included in the God of War Ultimate Pack

Somehow I think you will end up buying it.
I'm going to preorder now.

Thanks op. Just submitted my trade-in to Amazon for GoW Collection (GoW 1&2) for $13.50 and I have GoW 3 still in shrink wrap that I should be able to return to Walmart for at least $20 store credit (it's currently selling for $30, but I don't know the lowest price they've sold it for in the past). In the end I should get Origins Collection for free ^_^

Still debating because I have 1-3, but I have 1 and 2 for PS2. Is the HD upgrade noticeable? And someone above said Origins wasn't a big download, which is one of the problems I had cuz I'm running out of space. Does anyone know the size? And does newegg charge right away or when it ships? Thanks.

"Starting at $29.99" which is just the Ratchet and Clank Collection; the others are $40.

I would buy this right now but with the other games coming out (Sleeping Dogs, ACIII, Halo 4...), I'm just going to wait until Black Friday and get this on special. Hopefully it is on special and I'll probably have some free time during Jan 2013 to re-play all these games.
