PS3 Greatest Hits List Updated With MGS4, Prologue, DMC4, More

Ah yes, the Greatest Hit. The perfect excuse to head down to the store and take advantage of heavily discounted games that are too good to ignore any longer.

Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced that six more PlayStation 3 titles have been added to the "Greatest Hits" library. As of June 16, some of the best games of the new generation will be available for the very agreeable price of $29.99, so at that point, it's time to play catch-up. This is the second set of titles to achieve the lofty Greatest Hit status on the PS3, so there are more than a few bargains for PS3 owners. The six games in question are:

  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
  • Gran Turismo 5: Prologue
  • Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
  • Devil May Cry 4
  • Battlefield: Bad Company
  • Army of Two

Okay, so Prologue actually only drops $10 because the initial price tag sat at $40, but the others will be half the original $60 sticker. From our standpoint, at least four games on that list are absolute must-plays, while one is a solid and entertaining option for all FPS fans (Battlefield) and the other is good fun if you've got a friend to play with (Army of Two). Just think: you can pick up any two of these awesome titles for the price of one normally priced game...and that's nothing to sneeze at, considering the quality here.

I think you should go get it right now. A totally must own title. I have converted a few 360 friends to PS3s with that game alone.

Nice. Kinda wish Hot Shots Golf had made the list too. I'm looking for an excuse to buy a second copy since the one I have is camped out in my son's PS3. I'd rather not line Gamestop's pockets by purchasing a used copy.

HSG didn't sell well enough. Shame.

Also, it's a first-party game and Sony apparently doesn't want to sell any of those.

So why are they still charging $60 for the first Uncharted? If ever there was a game that needed to go on the "Greatest Hits" list...

Yeah I would also add Heavenly Sword. Both amazing games, but getting on in years.

Uncharted still sells to well to justify dropping it's price and including it in the Greatest Hits range. The Greatest Hit's range is not just about recognizing greatest hits, it's also a strategy to increase sales of titles that are no longer selling as well as they once were.

I would never buy uncharted or any of the games on that list for $60 normally, not because they aren't worth it...because they are...but in these times, my wallet can't take a hit like that...now $30 is so much more agreeable...

i wish i bought a greatest hits copy of FFVII. I still have my original release from 1995 that it got from a friend. its beat to hell and freezes when i try to play it on my PS3. With used copies on ebay and amazon going for 50 to 100 bucks, my only hope is they finally release it on the US PSN like they did in Japan. Or a remake would be nice.

Except Army of Two & DMC4 all these games are already certified PLATINUM and being sold at discount rates in the UK, i thought it was already the same in the US...

I'm tempted to pick up DMC4 now that it's seen a price drop but I'm getting my reserved copy of inFamous tomorrow and I got a feeling that's gonna keep me busy for awhile.

MGS4 at $30 is just a steal for anyone who hasn't played it.

...except they'll probably announce a "Substance" version soon.

p.s. Finally, some new Greatest Hits. I've been saying that they're overdue for months. I'll echo earlier comments and say that I can't believe that first-party games like Uncharted and Heavenly Sword aren't on the list.

Does Sony not want my money?

Heavenly Sword is a great game and sadly, Heavenly Sword 2 was cancelled because of poor sales. This was one of my early buys, kinda short but cool gameplay.
