Other months it has made the NPD "Top 20" were January 2010, February 2010, March 2010; with December 2009 and April 2010 being the only two months it has not been listed in the NPD's "Top 20" software sales.

As I stated in my "God of War III's May Sales Ranks" post, back on June 9, I have never played a God of War game from beginning to end.
I know this was Sony's first "remastered" game from the PS2 to port to the PS3, but with the sales God of War: Collection has seen I wouldn't doubt if Sony is porting more PS2 games to the PS3, with "remastered" graphics, and now perhaps even new game-play controls with the new Sony Move controller.
As for the sales ranks, I think it will be interesting to see if God of War: Collection makes the NPD's "Top 20" in software sales for May, when the numbers are released in July; compared to how it was ranking on Amazon.com throughout May.
Have you played both the PS2 and PS3 versions of God of War and God of War II?
If so, do you prefer one version more than the other?
Also, if Sony is porting anymore PS2 games to the PS3, what games would you like to see "remastered" and brought to the PS3 like God of War: Collection?
