Sell it?

Set up in bedroom?

I have room to set-up the old PS4 but I tend to only have consoles I'm using (Pro and One X at the moment) set-up.
I also never sell my consoles but that's mainly due to me being lazy.

Middling reviews. I think I'll skip this one.


I jest. I love old Kratos and the Greek setting and actually think God of War 1 & 2 are masterpieces. I know it was difficult for some people to warm to Kratos because you knew that whomever he'd meet he'd probably end up stabbing them or twisting their head off - but I always thought that was part of his charm! So it's really great that the reviewers have responded to the new direction as you don't know if they might dismiss it for being too different. This is what any console owner wants - a great game that they can sink their teeth into.

£40.99 on Smyths. Mighty tempted after reading those reviews.

Great news, I held off buying Far Cry 5 to see if this would be any good. Sony's output this generation has been unbelievably good.

Bloody hell this has reviewed incredibly well across the board :shock:

This sounds brilliant. I can't remember the last game I've bought at full price so this is going to be difficult to resist as I love Kratos.

Yes?

Btw, thanks Nickolarse for the links, gave me plenty to read on the bus to work this morning. Not that there was ever a doubt I'd miss out on a bit of Kratos and it's already bought digitally.

Oh wow. I sort of assumed this was going to be another middling revamp concentrating on spectacle and little else. Might have to pick this up now...

Sony are a bit annoying with their exclusives as just when I think maybe next gen can be PC only, they remind me why that can't be the case.

It's staggering when you think there is almost no competition as Nintendo have gone off on there own tangent and Microsoft have easily the worst first party line up in modern console history. Nice that they're not phoning it in.
