God Of War III 'only possible on PS3'

Sony claims gorgeous-looking title could not have been developed on any other system

Time to feel all warm inside, PS3 owners - Sony has claimed that the super-powerful system is the only console that could handle God Of War III.

The hugely anticipated game, which is due to hit shelves in March, is set to become one of the biggest titles of 2010.

Many tip it as a 'system seller' for Sony - and now the firm has told CVG that the game takes full advantage of PS3 hardware.

UK product manager for GoW III, Claire Backhouse, told CVG today:

"The developers have worked hard to use the power of the PS3 to make GOW3 look amazing and have added features that are only possible with PS3.

"The dynamic lighting solution employed in GOW III is only feasible through the computing power provided by the Cell SPUs.

"For example, using the High Dynamic Range Lighting (HDRL) technology, the camera - when using Krato's sightline - will emulate the human retina, causing players to feel a sharp brightness when Kratos exits a dark area and enters a sunlit area, similar to how the human eye would need to adjust."
