    Oh good, another reason not to buy it. Online Pass on it's way as well I bet. As much as I hate GOW, Multiplayer has no place in the series.

    My thoughts exactly!! Why put multiplayer in it? The ENTIRE God of War series was built for SP!! Adding MP would totally contradict everything they did in the series.

    its nice that theyre trying to change things up since this is entry number six in the franchise but i was thinking more of a new protagonist and a new era instead of tacking on a multiplayer option with another prequel

    Kratos in another fighting game = cool.

    Nameless fighters in a competitive MP offering as part of the God of War franchise = decidedly not cool.

    "We wouldn’t do multiplayer in God of War unless we knew we could do it right." Translation: "We wouldn't do multiplayer in God of War at all, except that we're losing a ton of money in the used market and we needed a way to keep people from trading in the game and buying it used."

    No, no, no, no, no this can't be happening. Competitive MP has no place in GoW. This is stupid to jump on the bandwagon to have MP in a game like this. Time to play the waiting game to see how this is going to come together. Who knows, it could be awesome, but then again, MP in a GoW game?

    It's so you don't trade it in as soon as you complete it, plus it'll probably have an online pass

    Right because they need extra cash on top of the mountain they already make. That's why they want the money from used games, even though they already got it, when it was purchased new. Because it can't have been used without being purchased. So basically they are just being greedy.

    In any case, if it makes the GOW fans feel better, you don't have to play the MP (unless there are MP trophies). That's what most of did with Dead Space 2, it was pointless and stupid, so we just ignored it.

    , God of War with multiplayer...sorry, can't see it. I know people kind of thought the same thing about multiplayer in Mass Effect 3, myself included, when it was first announced but with Mass Effect it at least makes some sense. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Say what!? That's a new one. I don't agree with that decision one bit. If anything, hopefully it will be like Dead Space 2's MP and won't have trophies and is more of a "if you want to" kind of thing. Regardless, they shouldn't add MP to GoW at all.

    It looks good, don't get me wrong, but MP still doesn't have a place in a God of War game. Just saying..........

    Pretty much. It may turn out to be fun but multiplayer isn't something God of War needs, at all.

    The way he explains it - it might actually work.

    I couldn't care less if they slapped it on there, cause I will be buying the game for single player experience anyway. I would only see the downside of MP if they would pull out resources of SP in order to make it good (shortening singleplayer in favor of multiplayer).
