The gameplay looks typically God of War, in all its bloody glory, with the signature kills that the series is known for. The multiplayer mode shown features the players battling for control of points on a map while a massive cyclops is chained in the background, once one team has control they can go in and get a nice gory kill on the cyclops, it looks very cool.

Well the long rumored answer to Super Smash Bros has finally been confirmed. Sony has released the first trailer and details for PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale.

The game looks to be very similar to Super Smash Bros, with famous icons from the Playstation brand like Kratos appearing in the roster of fighters. The game is a 2D fighter, thought it appears the environments will have an amount of destructibility to them, as well as the background itself coming into play, as you can see in the trailer with Hades from God of War attacking the fighters as they duke it out.

‘God of War IV’ Revealed as ‘God of War: Ascension’

After Sony teased us last week with a picture that was widely speculated to be related to a new God of War game, the reveal has finally come and yes it is a new God of War.

Titled God of War Ascension, not God of War IV as previously speculated, the game appears as though it will be a prequel, from the trailer it seems as though it will tell the story of Kratos from before he was the Ghost of Sparta, tearing a bloody path through ancient Greece.

The game will be released on the Playstation 3. Welcome back Kratos!

Rumor: God Of War 4 Coming?

Oh I really hope this is for God of War 4!

Posted on the Playstation facebook page, the image above teases a reveal on April 19, by the looks of the image and the popular consensus about the image is it could be a reveal for a new God of War.

The colours of the picture do strike a resemblance to those used for previous God of War ad campaigns and vengeance is Kratos’ thing, so it seems like a pretty safe bet right? I hope so.

Rumor: Playstation 4 Details Emerge?

PS4?

According to a post on Kotaku, an inside source claims to have information on the next Playstation, apparently codenamed Orbis, the next-gen console is said to be releasing in 2013. According to the source the console will run on an AMD x64 CPU and an AMD Southern Islands GPU.

Another big feature rumored is that the console will not be backwards compatible with the Playstation 3, nor will it support used games, having games registered to a PSN account and therefore not being able to trade in or sell at a later date as they no longer work on someone elses console.

Interesting rumors I must say, though I’m not sure about the used games thing, doesn’t seem like something that would go down to well with retail games companies.
