Bros and eh.. Foes: God of War Trophy to be renamed


Sony Santa Monica has confirmed it will amend the title of God of War: Ascension's trophies following criticism.

The "Bros before Hos", trophy was criticised for popping up after Kratos smashed the face of one of him female enemies, although the trophy was not actually related to this action, but rather the action of their brother.

"We have created and will soon push out a patch for God of War: Ascension that alters the title of one of the game Trophies. The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game," the statement read.

Apparently the offending trophy, which was named by one of the studios female producers, will now be renamed "Bros before Foes".

Those Hos do have a large community presence, we should get them to request a final fantasy 7 remake! or a patch for tomb raiders achievements so i don't have to grind for 60 hours (#1 12/03/13)

I think you are joking, but tone is so hard to convey on the internet.

What would be good now is if they replaced Kratos with an interesting character..... the game would almost become playable....

What an absolute load of rubbish! OK, before I carry on, I personally don't have a dog in the fight either way. I couldn't care less, it's just a trophy. BUT, this is just another instance of a dev and a publisher cowering to a vocal minority. it's the same as the Taliban being changed to OpFor in Medal of Honor. It's a stupid reason to patch a game. Considering this is a series of games that demonstrate a staggering amount of violence towards men, women, animals, whatever, surely a stupidly named trophy is very low on the list of things to whinge about in this game. I mean come on. You can't cry about something like this after in previous GOW games you "saved" a woman (a god if I remember right) simply to throw her into a gear mechanism to open a door!

Thing is, Dante's Inferno had a 'bad nanny' trophy given to it for killing a infant in the game. It didn't pander to the minority arguments.

It caused a big stir though. The problem there was, Dante's inferno had already caused so much hell (no pun intended) for EA, after the Sin to Win comp, and the Fake protests, that the Bad Nanny trophy was easily forgotten.

It caused a big stir, because news outlets picked it up and ran with the bad EA campaign that had been pushed out for Dante's Inferno, which had even made it into the Superbowl commercials. It keeps the game in peoples minds as they didn't buckle to pressure.

Lol. I had to comment here. Speaking of changing achievements. Just had a trophy pop in Tomb Raider, crashed the PS3 and now I got a corrupt game save. Lovely. Guess I'll get more playtime out of it.

People have just got too sensitive, everybody says bros before hoes, and the game is an 18 rated game right?

This has been a truly embarassing spectacle to behold from beginning to disappointing end. That reactionary internet white knights backed up by people pushing an agenda against this game can garner so much attention over something so trivial is just horse shit. Really disappointed in Sony Santa Monica for caving in over this... but on the other hand, if this is the best complaint people are able to come up with to run the game down, then it's heartening to take away that they must have nailed the rest of it nicely. Looking forward to getting it on friday... even if one of the trophies I earn in it is going to have the unmistakeable taste of cowardice about it :(

If it's being patched out, I wonder if I don't allow the patch if I get to keep the original trophy? Hmmmm.

"Apparently the offending trophy, which was named by one of the studios female producers, will now be renamed "Bros before Foes". I love how they mentioned this brilliant. also these people have clearly not played the game if they're offended by "Bro's before Hoes"

Love how this is the offending thing is in a series that has a sex mini game in each installment and 3 had a part where you threw someone (a girl? Memory is foggy) into a cog and won a trophy titled 'I didn't do it. But I wish I did.' It's kinda hilarious.
