Chart Info:
The chart above shows the sales ranks for God of War: Collection, with data captured between April 25 and May 31.
The lowest sales rank I recorded for God of War: Collection was #88 on May 18, around 11:40PM.
I found it interesting, that May 18 was a Tuesday.
There were five PS3 titles released on May 18, that probably affected its sales rank.  Some of the titles released on May 18 were; Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Red Dead Redemption, and Split Second.
The highest sales rank I recorded for God of War: Collection was #49 on May 2, around 10:35PM; and May 22, around 11:35AM.

Critical Reception & Price Drop:
As I stated in the "Quick Brew Info", God of War: Collection released on November 17, 2009.  It released with a MSRP of $39.99.
God of War: Collection currently has a review score average of 90.79% on, based on 39 reviews.

(Too high?  Too low?  Just right?)

God of War: Collection was ranked 17th overall, in the NPD's sales numbers for November 2009.
It started being reported around January 29, that the MSRP for God of War: Collection was dropped to just $29.99 by multiple retailers.
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.
God of War: Collection is currently ranked #104 and is selling for $29.54 on

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 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?

If you are interested in God of War: Collection for the PS3, you can see new and used prices for it on below:


  1. Well I think it's safe to say that most Playstation players would want Final Fantasy VII remastered and updated for the PS3. They had the tech demo of it when the PS3 first came out and it got a lot of people excited.

    I'd like to see Metal Gear Solid 1 remastered as well. I remember the Game cube did this with MGS1 and called it Twin Snakes. But one could imagine how awesome MGS1 would look on the PS3 with updated graphics and controls.

  2. I owned both God of Wars on the PS2 and bought the collection when it came out and the PS3 remaster is clearly superior. The only gripe I have is the cutscenes are not up to snuff and look like crap comparatively to the gameplay. Since I no longer own a PS2 or BC capable PS3 I am glad for the remakes for the better graphics and trophies. Now I just want them to do more of them in greater numbers, like Jak, Ratchet, Ico, Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy X, X-2, and XII. Those are the ones I'd like to see and since Sly is coming and God of War sold gangbusters, I hope that third parties are looking at these things with a solid interest in doing it, maybe even for PS1 games (how sick would Castlevania SotN be in HD with smoother sprites!?

  3. @Nicodemus at Nite:
    Yea, the FFVII tech demo sure made it seem like it was happening sooner, rather than later.

    I still have not played/completed any of the Metal Gear games...

    @G.A. Nolen:
    Are the cutscenes just like they were from the PS2 version, with no upgrades?

    Also, I would think the Final Fantasy games and others would be up to the Publisher/Developers to just remaster them and re-release them.

    The Wii has had A LOT of games re-released on it.

    Thank you both for the comments and thoughts.
