[UPDATE 2/13/07: IGN has since updated their original review, now stating that SCEA has confirmed that the title will only run in 480p. Bummer.]
I was already psyched for the impending release of God of War II for the Sony PlayStation 2, but now there’s even more reason to rejoice. According to IGN’s review of the upcoming game (9.7 out of 10), not only does the game kick some serious butt, it will play at full 720p resolution when running on a PlayStation 3.
It’s too soon to know if the 720p mode will improve texture quality or just polygon resolution. If executed properly, this little upgrade could be a significant bonus for those of use who’ve picked up a PS3. Since IGN was reviewing a pre-release build, they didn’t get a chance to actually play it in high definition, so we’ll have to wait a few weeks to know for sure. God of War II is expected to hit shelves on March 13, 2007.
