God of War to go beyond a trilogy?

Holy crap. Having just finished reading this interview (it's about noon, not that it matters), I've got to keep myself from laughing out loud (LOLing, if we may) because I'm in a study... area. Anyway, David Jaffe was interviewed way back during GDC about a number of things, but we're going to concentrate on his talk about God of War and where that franchise will go. But we're also going to make a quick list of our favorite quotes from the interview. Because it's hilarious.

  • Jaffe on Nintendo and the Wii: "I love Nintendo. I can't get my hands on a f***ing Wii."
  • Jaffe on asking Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime for a Wii: "I don't know, it's not like he's carrying them around like Santa Claus..."
  • Jaffe on Microsoft responding to HOME: "I think it's a good attempt at spin. Good for them for trying to spin their way out of a pretty bad situation."
  • Jaffe about missing the rumble feature: "No one would say, "Yeah rumble sucks, nobody cares about it." It's a nice feature... but let's put it this way: when I heard we weren't going to have rumble I wasn't like, "Oh my god we're f***ed."

All right, whatever. The meat of the God of War stuff is on the third page of the interview. To summarize, Jaffe explains that he knows exactly where the story of Kratos is going and where it will end, but he thinks it may take two or three more games to tell the tale completely (sales dependent, sure). Also, Sony will probably release some mini-stories to tie up other loose ends. The third title is rumored to be coming to the PS3 (duh), will support 1080p and some nifty SIXAXIS ideas. Good stuff, funny guy. Curses like a sailor. We at PS3Fanboy always respect men of the sea, because they're like pirates and pirates are pleasant and cordial.

1. Jaffe about missing the rumble feature: "No one would say, "Yeah rumble sucks, nobody cares about it." It's a nice feature... but let's put it this way: when I heard we weren't going to have rumble I wasn't like, "Oh my god we're f***ed."

I hope that teaches you not to throw the word confirmed around so lightly.

3. Jaffe is f***ing cool... We should have more people like him in the industry.

I remember the time they interviewed him while he was drunk... f***ing hilarious.

4. Twisted Metal 2 was my favorite Jaffe game back in the day. Me and my friends spent hour playing it, shooting down the eifel tower in Paris level.

God of War 1 & 2 are both great games that tell an excellent story.
I cant wait for the psp game (Cory insists its not a port) and the inevitable follow up on PS3.

We may not get DMC4 exclusively (congrats 360 owners enjoy the series as much as i have) we still have God Of War.

7. Makes sense to have more than a 3rd game. They have to build a game engine for GoW3. As long as they have that engine, might as well make 2 or 3 games with it.

8. GoW3 will be in 1080p? That would be awesome, but I'll believe it when I see it.

9. "when I heard we weren't going to have rumble I wasn't like, "Oh my god we're f***ed. It wasn't until after the PS3 price announcement that I reacted that way."
