While North American PS3 gamers can look forward to a holiday 2009 release for The God of War Collection - the first two games released in 720p on a Blu-ray disc - European PlayStation fans will have to wait until next 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," explained a statement from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. "We will provide further information in due course."

Hopefully we'll see the game early in 2010.
