PS3 Platinum Games Launching Friday – Oh No! by Anthony Barlow

The first of the PS3’s ‘platinum’ range is launching in the UK on Friday. The RRP for those games are £19.99 but there are a few places (Play.com) that are selling for less (£14.99). Some of the best games on the PS3 available for a discount price. But, there are two downsides well at least for me there is.

  1. The Boxes – The ‘platinum’ boxes are terrible. They’re all silver, yellow and tacky looking, not good. The ‘greatest hits’ boxes in the US look so much better. They’re just like the originals but have a nice red box.
  2. The drop in price – For me, not good. The price drop means that after Friday (and more than likely before) I won’t get anything for those games when trading them in. Damn!

Anyway it’s cool that Sony are looking after it’s customers.

I’ve got the full list of titles right here (or at least some of ’em):

  • Resistance: Fall Of Man
  • Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
  • Assasins Creed
  • Ratchet & Clank: Tools Of Destruction
  • MotorStorm
  • Heavenly Sword

I’m surprised that not all of the ‘Greatest Hits’ games from the US have made their way to Europe. I at least WarHawk would’ve been in there.

I agree about the boxart. It’s hideous! I went out and bought Ratchet, Resistance and Uncharted before they’re beaten with the ugly stick.

Any word on whether or not the discs themselves will be changed to some generic design?
