The trailer for God of War Collection show off just what a feat Sony thinks it has pulled in re-mastering the PS2 games for PS3.  Once the introduction is out of the way, the trailer’s complete focus is on in-game visuals.  Sony even demonstrates some prescience in addressing specific areas that were visually impressive in standard definition but might not translate well to HD.  The footage shows plenty of particle effects, fast scrolling environments and the game’s infamously giant bosses to highlight how little they break down in visual fidelity.

If re-mastering all the PS2 classics was as feasible as God of War, and could be as much a feast on the eyes, Sony could ditch its backwards compatibility woes.
