How to get God of War Collection for FREE
Head to the storefront. Get the free full game trials (PS+ required) for God of War HD and God of War II HD on the PS3. Finally head to the God of War Collection page, and select the PS Vita version. It should be free and upon purchasing it, you'll get that and the PS3 version of God of War Collection for free.
The above method is apparently dead, but a number of people have confirmed it still works if you got the PS3 trials and buy it via the PS Vita Store.
Check your Vitas PS Store if you got in on the PS3 trials. It just poped up free for me!!!!
What if I already own God of War I/II digitally?
If you already own both games, then you can simply purchase the Vita version. Sony confirmed a while back that the title supported Cross-Buy, so you can do this regardless of the glitch. This also applies to people who scored I/II from the other glitch, so those people got really lucky.
About the file size
In this and the other topic, a few people have wondered about the games 15.5 GB file size. This total comes from the combined total of both the PS3 version and PS Vita version of God of War. For those wondering about the actual file sizes, you can find them below.
It's just the combined total of the PS3 and Vita version.
- God of War Collection Vita - 3.1 GB
- God of War I PS3 - 5.9 GB
- God of War II PS3 - 6.5 GB
- Total Size = 15.5 GB
Will this work on other games?
No. This glitch only worked because of God of War being a Cross-Buy title and how the PSN handles full game trials. Simply put, buying the full game trial results in the PSN thinking you purchased the game, which for one reason or another, was enough to trick the PSN into thinking you owned the game and were entitled to the free Vita version.
