  • News Updating a God of War

    August 17, 2011 by r13


    Sony has posted a short article on the trials of remastering their God of War PSP games into proper HD games.

    It sounds like it was a ton of fun for the lucky developers that got slated with the task:

    We ended up going through every single character in the game and doubling or tripling polygon count by hand, as well as up-rezing and re-painting every texture across both games at 4x resolution on both characters and environments.

    They even have some video plus a few screens for you to ponder at their blog.

      Clever, I wish more people realized the work that goes into HD'ing old games.

      I'm actually looking forward to this release since I don't own a PSP and I've played all GoW's but these two.

      Those PSP games are fantastic, it'll be a treat for those of you who pick them up for PS3

      Now we wait to see if the sales figures justify the man hours spent doing all of that.

      oh god up-rezing, this had to be a nightmare to work on. I get annoyed if I'm asked to do it on just one asset, I couldn't
      imagine a whole game.
