God of War: Collection box art, no PAL release in 2009

God of War: Collection has cover art now, Look at the cover art. Isn't it pretty or something?

North American consumers will have that cover art on their shelves before the year is out, but unfortunately for Europeans, there won't be a PAL release of the game compilation until 2010. According to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, it's just not "possible" to launch a European version of the game this year. 

"We are currently looking into options to bring God of War I and II to SCEE consumers on PS3; however it will not be possible to release the games this calendar year," explains a rep. "We will provide further information in due course."

I wonder when they decided to start making these remakes, if they don't have time to release a port in Europe. This must have been a really, really quick job decided late in the year if this is the case. Still, the PS2 generation was a generation when Europe had it far worse in terms of late releases, so at the very least, this could be considered an authentic last-gen experience for PAL consumers.

That's our Sony, always looking to add that extra resonant touch.
