Platinum Hits Trio Features Three Of The PS3's Best
We all know about the many, many great games on tap for the fourth quarter this year, and most of us simply don't have the time or money to play 'em all. And if money is your primary obstacle and you've missed out in the past, maybe now's the time to turn your attention to those attractively priced Platinum Hits.
There are already several great titles in the lineup and for only half the original price, they're always great deals. And now, according to European site PSFocus, three of the PlayStation 3's best titles to date will be inducted into the illustrious Platinum ranks early next month: Killzone 2, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, and Resistance 2. Now, it's only a Euro site and we don't have any official announcement from either SCEA or SCEE, but the only question we have concerns the date, which is September 2. On that day, you should be able to buy these three games for only $30 each. However, while we're absolutely certain all three have sold enough copies to qualify for the Platinum label, we can't say the second of September is 100% accurate without a press release. If it is accurate, that's great, because it means these three insta-classics will be available as Platinum Hits at the exact same time the PS3 Slim hits store shelves. Think about it: buy the new, cheaper PS3 for $299 and maybe two of those three titles for the price of one new game.
Yep, sounds like a great deal to us. We imagine other titles might soon be added to the Platinum lineup in the near future, too, so if you still need to play some catch-up, pay close attention...
