It seems like the recently released screenshots of God of War: Chains of Olympus have caused quite a stir on the various bulletin boards. First our banner shots got people wondering if a ‘wide screen’ PSP was in the works, then the highres screenshots got widely dismissed as ‘doctored’.
Look ma! No bullshot!
So, here’s the whole truth and nothing but the truth: NO those shots are not doctored in any way, shape or form. They are rendered on the PSP, using in-game geometry, in-game textures and in-game lighting. They actually all show real game locations that you will be able to play in the full game.
They are indeed rendered at super high resolution thanks to a feature of our engine allowing us to render up to 1080p using PSP hardware, on devkits only obviously. The reason the web site shots are wide is because these were made for our banners on the site. The reason those show practically no aliasing is because they are higher res than the PSP screen….
