New Greatest Hits Additions Include Killzone 2, Resistance 2

The Greatest Hits lineup is very attractive to consumers, especially those who couldn't snag every last fantastic title the instant they hit store shelves.

There are already plenty of available games in the PlayStation 3 Greatest Hits library and now, thanks to a new Wal-Mart flyer, we know about a half-dozen more that you'll soon be able to purchase for the agreeable price of $29.99. As of this Friday, the following titles will drop to that price so if you've been planning to grab any of them, just wait one more day:

  • Killzone 2
  • Resistance 2
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet GOTY Edition
  • UFC Undisputed

We've raved about Killzone 2 in the past and many PS3 owners have already sampled its greatness but if you missed out, now's the time. There's also Resistance 2, which is vastly under-appreciated by many (or so it seems), and one of our personal favorites of 2009, inFamous. Sucker Punch's awesome and surprisingly addictive action title is a steal at only $30 so take advantage of the deal!  As for the LBP GotY edition, if you haven't sampled Sackboy and his antics just yet, well...we kinda feel sorry for you. UFC Undisputed is great but you have to be an ultimate fighting fan to appreciate it, right?

these are all great games.
I'd recommend LBP before any of the rest because its so easy to get hooked no matter what age you are and more content is added daily!! :)

These titles are a most buy for those who missed out, and thought they were too much at the time of release.

Cool!!!
Do any of these G.H. games have some extra content, or they're exactly same as when they 1st came out new???

I'm looking to pick up all of them if so.

But if not, then I just need LBP since I've already got all of them except for UFC(which I'll never play, so I'll wind up bargain binning for it much later on).

If I had to choose one game from that list, I'll pick inFamous.
LBP has almost unlimited replay value though.

@Lightshow,
Thanks on the "get back", that's pretty much what I figured. So it's mainly just GOTY's, LTD's & Collector's, etc, games that include most of the extras in it.
Cool then, this should save me a lot of money not having to re-purchase any of them all over again.

@LV,
LOL, Not really, all I still need now is LBP's GOTY edition, already got all the rest 'cept for UFC.
BTW, what I'm liking most from this new pricing, is that there should certainly a huge drop in the USED prices now too.
"Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy"

And like I said before UFC' will still remain as an under $10 bargain bin purchase only.
BTW, I've been buying up all the older PS3, 360, sports titles for $2 to $4, plus from .99 cents to $2 for the older PS2, Xbox, & Gamecube sports games I still need for my collection purposes.

@cLoudou,
AS you come into Bikertown, stop at the first intersection & then throw a few $20's at the guy with sunglasses that's on your left, who's shaking a cup of pencils at you.
That will be me, as I'm just trying to get more funds to complete my collections.

BTW, I used to have a nice organ-grinder's box with a cute lil monkey named Mr.Bojangles, but the repo guys came took away my chime maker and every since then, it's been all "bye, bye American pie, that's the day the music died".
And then I got so damned tired of the monkey always throwing feces at all of my potential donator's.
But I did wind up getting a pretty penny for him, from some dude named Michel Jackson.

How does that $30 voucher work for LBP? is it $30 of what ever you want or is it predetermined?

I might buy it again just to get more content.

Looks like I'm a step closer to getting LBP. The rest I have, with the exception of UFC which I'm not interested in at that price.

I didn't pay more than $30 for the others either. Got them all during last year's Black Friday riots.

Definitely not a FPS fan, but I guess it's time to give Killzone 2 a try. Do you guys recommend KZ2 just for the single player experience?

i wouldnt be buying either infamous or LBP just yet because both are suppose to be getting move functionality so you might as well wait for that and see if the price moves.
same as heavy rain, i cant wait to see that using move.
i wish they would do this to some of their PSP games though, i really wanted to pick up LBP PSP but its still 60 bucks!
how can a game hold its launch price for 6+ freaking months?

i remember reading a article this week cant remember where though saying that its confirmed LBP and heavy rain will receive move support via a patch.
hope its true, ive been dying to give LBP another play and heavy rain would be sweet with motion support.

@______________,

IMO, the time to buy them is right now, & not later after the "Move" comes out.


As a collector, I'm always watching for stuff that causes crazy price fluctuations.
And I think this is one of those times that once adding Move support(as in DL firmware/patches) would only up their value immensely, therefore also keeping prices for them high, and not lower them at all(and this goes especially for the "used" market even more so).

So I think you should start lassoing any of those games while the branding iron is still hot.

very good, here in Brazil I pay roughly $ 120 a game at launch, that due to taxes and profits of the sellers, I got a ps3 recently and I'll buy games from 2008 or so, these older games are around of $ 60,is difficult to be a ps3 owner here, more I am a fan of the playstation brand, and I can not stay out, only now I'll start playing metal gear solid 4, a game for you is about 3 years ago .
