'God of War: Ascension' trailer talks multiplayer tech

Adding online multiplayer meant grappling with challenges concerning online lag -- the millisecond delays incurred as data is sent between players -- and dealing with matchmaking issues to ensure that participants were of similar skill levels.

Due on PlayStation 3 in March, "God of War: Ascension" will be Sony Santa Monica's fourth acquaintance with online multiplayer in the past year, having collaborated on "PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale," "Starhawk," and "Journey".

Xbox 360 action fans can look forward to the alien-bashing "Gears of War: Judgement" a week later while "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3" sees the return of a seasoned online battler a week prior on both console platforms.
