God of War: Ascension has gotten some negative pre-launch buzz due to a Trophy called "Bros before Hoes." The negative publicity has caused Sony Santa Monica to create a patch that will change the Trophy's name.
The Trophy is awarded after the scene depicted below. Kratos gives a female villain a thrashing before her pals show up. A male character then shows up to lend his support. Cue the Trophy.
"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," said Sony's statement (via Joystiq. "We are endlessly committed to ensuring that our community can fully enjoy the experiences the team has created. As such, we've addressed the feedback and amended the Trophy in question."
The patch to change the Trophy name will arrive tomorrow. It'll change the name to "Bros Before Foes." I was hoping for "Bros Before Internet Rage-Os" but their pick works too.
Ascension will launch exclusively on the PS3 tomorrow.
