PlayStation 3 to see a Greatest Hits line for software

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 04 Feb 2008 16:52 User comments (51)

PlayStation 3 to see a Greatest Hits line for software Following Sony's recent decsion to create a line of Greatest Hits titles for the PlayStation 3 in Japan, the electronics giant has been quoted as saying that will most "likely" do the same for the European market.
In the past, Sony has re-released hit tiles under its Platinum or Greatest Hits line which gives the games a new lease on life at a very discounted price.

"We have introduced a Platinum range of best-selling titles for all of our platforms to date, and it is likely that we will do so in the future for PS3,"
said a spokesperson for the company.

"However, no decisions have yet been made on timing or line-up."


The first Platinum title that Japan will see is the blockbuster game "Resistance: Fall of Man".

So far, a Sony America spokesperson has said they had not come to decision on when the Greatest Hits line would hit North America.

how they can even release a "greatest hits" line when there have only been a few games for the machine completely bewilders me but if it is a platinum line max charge should be $20.

in order to have a greatest hits line you must first have a line to pull from?

44.2.2008 18:45

Did any of you actually bother to read the article ?

- " it is likely we will do so in the future for PS3 "
- " no decision has been made yet on timing or line up "

Why this should "bewilder" anyone is beyond me - seems very clear they are talking about an unspecified future date.

It's completely illogical to criticise them on the strength of current games availability for the PS3 - wait until they announce the actual date and line up before you start criticising them. It could be 12 or 24 months down the line - who knows ?

cheaper games! this is good news!

64.2.2008 21:08

greatest hits is a good thing. maybe they'll have them out by the time i can afford a ps3.

of course, i'll probably buy one right before they finally have an actual price drop on the consoles.

greatest hits line knocks 15-20$ off the launch price, it really should be 19-29, cheap games sell consoles.

its funny how you say they have no line up when xbox and ps3 have the same titles with a few exclusives yet ps3 isnt profitting off it do to lack of consoles sold meaning less people buying games...i think the ps3 has potential but needs a better online setup and a controller with a rumble pack here in the states they havent hit yet...but i'm sure ps3 will see some titles this year...if not wasted potential......

Now that they have dealt with the price (at the cost of BWC) even without BWC the PS3 can only go uphill from here, the 360 is close to falling off hill...

The WII will maintain.

cheap games are always welcomed and great news but calling it a "greatest hits" is laughable at the moment and the foreseeable future, but this just seems like complete rhetoric from sony to me, because of the latest official news that sony have hiked up the cost of ps3 games to recoup costs from the over priced console!

In case you couldn't previously put two and two together, one is the result of the other. SCE Australia (a subsidiary of SCEE, so it stands to reason the decision came from Europe) boss Michael Ephraim:

About six months into the year we realised we needed to increase our revenue on software to be honest. We're still in line with third parties, and it was just a business decision regarding profitability.
then you have 3rd party game prices being inflated by retailers but i suppose if its aright for sony to raise prices so will the retailers but when its in direct competition with the 360 imho, not a good move!

nero-devil-may-cry-4.jpg So some UK retailers are charging as much as ten extra quid for the PS3 version of Devil May Cry 4. Why's it more expensive than the Xbox 360 version? Both versions look pretty much the same. What gives?! Says a Capcom spokesperson:


We don't set the prices of our games, that's at the discretion of the retailer. In this specific instance, the process has resulted in a price difference, but the process itself is not something we completely control.


That sucks, but there it is.

btw ZippyDSM you do know that Backwards compatibility is just a software trick don't you, it bares little on the cost of the PS3 just as the different hard drives, have very little difference in price to purchase, and is just a tool used by sony to dupe the customer into believing that a price hike or sku variants are justified @ $100+ more!

Maybe they aren't. Maybe they're planning to introduce a $300 model and add PS2 compatibility to the $400 model. Maybe they're in fact planning to discontinue a really dumb idea (making PS2 compatibility a buy-time decision) and add software compatibility to the $400 model. Maybe they'll even offer a system update to buyers of the existing 40GB model that up-flashes their systems.

You know PS2 compatibility is just a software trick in the 80GB model, right?

BWC in the 60GB unit is not a software trick,but it was aided by it because they skimmed on it to start with.

Still better than the 360s attempt at it even the raped 40/80GB PS3 units....

nobrainer, the "greatest hits" line up is designed to extend the shelf life of a game. After it has sold a specific number of copies (600,000 in 1 year for the PS2) then it will qualify for this, creating more sales so therefore generating more profit from each title. This news is based on forward thinking. Any successful business must have a strategy for the future. The only negative thing I could say is that the article is stating the obvious. Of course we will see a "greatest hits" or "platinum" (as it's known in the PAL regions) line up but who knows when?

the european 60gig PS3 had software emulation from the outset, the same as current USA 80gig, unlike the the USA/Japan 60gig versions that had the PS2 chip and full 100% backwards compatibility!

Like I said the US60GB unit,sorry the euro 60GB unit was dropped so fast I dun remember it, or I should say proper BWC was dropped so fast, Sony did screw a lot of people out of hardware and money by screwing us out of proper BWC to save them a few bucks on each console made as well as inflate the global regional price in a money scheme to double profit of it.

But the global regional price scheme is merely business raping the consumer sony is not alone in this, the BWC is no worse than the 360s and the 360s hardware failures are almost worse, pick your demon and worship him well he will devour you the same never the less.

How these turn into Sony sucks threads so quickly I have no idea, but there are games for the PS3 that have sold enough copies to justify a greatest hit tag.
Assassin's Creed
Guitar Hero 3
Call of Duty 4
Uncharted
Motorstorm
Resistance
I know this is a very anti-sony, pro-microsoft website, but greatest hits are based on sales and all those sold over a million copies.

It may seem that way but it's not. It's only a few individuals that look for every opportunity to trash Sony. Everyone has a right to an opinion. Some share them more frequently than welcomed. Some people in life see the positive in a situation while others do not.

See my post earlier in this thread. :-)

The loading issue has more interesting look at DMC4 and how they handled it, still one dev trying something different is not enough to bash on it the PS3 is evolving well but slowly in software, I really wish they would go ahead and move up to the 4X BR I would like to see better BWC but they can;t even make games I am willign to spend 60$ on so I must suck :P

but still ail better hardware would quicken PS3 sales IMO.


as for MS...good god what a mess....... its a fair system but unlike the 360 its not gaining value as it ages.....

and the WII is a gimmick......freaking mainstreamized industry is pooing out sub par mainstreamized games....

save you money, use that or something else to rent video games and save your money. personally, I rent games I'm not sure on and buy games that I find I like or I know I will like. A faster drive for the ps3 would help and better foresight by microsoft and a real system by ninetendo (if i want a work out, I will go to a gym. but if I get a wii I want to play games, devs need to understand that).

Sorry I wont waste a penny on a crappy game its the only way I can effect any change in the system as manute as it may be.

As for the WII I have nothing against the WII mote,when properly dev'd for its a great controller so its not the problem its the games or lack there of, then again looking at the industry as it is......

219.2.2008 0:55

if it is a crappy game, then by all means don't rent it. that isn't what I was suggesting. then again I had forgotten that you, Zippy, think all games suck and everything should go back to the 2d top down days of nostalgia.

More like more focus on gameplay and level design than art direction and shallow physics, and how dose one know its a crappy game until one plays it reviews are worthless now adays.

239.2.2008 1:16

You don't listen to one review, you look at multiple reviews to piece together the truth, you look at reviews from people who bought the game and piece together the truth from that as the only people that will review it will either love it or hate it. If it looks promising, rent it, if it looks to be great, buy it, if it looks to be crap, ignore it.

Not when 90% of reviewers drool over a game like Bioshock and Halo 3 and it winds up as another mediocre game after you play it....

259.2.2008 2:14

You are being intentionally difficult Zippy. If you don't like a game, fine, you are entitled to your opinion. I don't care for fps' myself and never got into the whole Halo craze and Bioshock didn't seem interesting to me. But to say they aren't good games when so many say otherwise, tells me that you either have bad taste (definitely a possibility since you hate most new games) or you don't like fps games and you are just complaining to complain.

I am a old FPS fan, I dislike short shigted gun and gun FPSs(D3 and Q4 the worst yet of the AAA tittles,Jericho the worst yet....ever .....even daikatana was more fun) bioshock while not a complete waste was minimized due to mainstreamizsation and being rushed, Halo 3 has the shortest SP side of the lot and gameplay thats only alil more polished than H2 making it a 60$ MP game.

Perhaps you don't care they are getting lazy on gameplay and amount of content some people do and are not amused when graphics eat away at a game.

this would go without saying its the norm to get the game cheaper and it would be like $50

borhan9, I don't mean to be rude in any way but can you please stop digging up all these old threads? This is about the 8th one in a week that I have seen you post on that has been more than a few weeks old! Isn't current news appealing to you? :-P

News means new with an s on the end making it plural... If old is better than new then why don't people make something called "Olds"? I can't imagine someone going to the news stand and buying an Oldspaper... ;-)

Better than the disc eating easy break oven with half baked games stolen from PC development for quick cash. *rolls eyes*

If the PS3 didn't outsell the the 360 in europe by now I would still be writing it off but hell in 2 years it will crush the 360 as the main console devs look to to push software on, this is mainly due tot he 360s antquited design.

Also the PS3 is finally getting a huge BWC update all 40GB units up to 90%+ backwards compabile still a "rumor" but so was half of the 360s console "updates".

The PS3 is shaping up and the 360 can not keep up, altho I'll say this if MS puts in a BR drive(withthe intent to let devs make BR games in time) and unlocks the HDD on th 360 I'll be happy to plug 500$ into a new console, already wasted 250$ on a 360 and all it did was break down between shipping cost (would not pay for shipping twice) and lost money on resale, nothing but a waste of money,all the good games are multi console or on the PC and no halo ep 3 is not a good game.
there is only 1 game that makes me want a 360 and thats lost oddessy and even still its not wroth putting up with the craptacauler line up of uderdeved "pretty" games and bad hardware.

Frankly the PS3 currently is not much better bad coding costly games that are barely worth half retail price, hell even the WII is over priced and in a rut of party games.

Uhg the 7th generation news and brand movements are more interesting than the products being sold... mass market gameing blows.

Seems this thread is turning into nothing but fanboy style posts (directed towards gmontalc). Keep it up you will have a couple days off if you cannot hold a basic proper conversation. As far as which titles will be getting the Greatest Hits (US) or Platinum Hits (EU) treatment are these


MotorStorm
Resistance: Fall of Man
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
Heavenly Sword


There are quite a few others can make it in as their sales performance are perfectly in line with the requirements needed to be labeled GH/PH. People can sit here and say PS3 titles don't sell, but the truth is quite contrary to what some speculate/believe. The first 4 out of the 5 I own/have played and are VERY well deserved of being in that category, though I personally don't like Heavenly Sword style gameplay it is a great title for those who like the genre (God Of War, DMC etc).


If this thread degenerates any further it will be closed for said reasons given earlier and because it is outdated news though there has been new correspondence to the topic...

My apologies if I was instigating anything,merely making the point there are gaping holes in all the consoles despite them all doing quite well.

Sorry buddy to dissapoint you, I am NOT a fan-boy of any console and very least of the Xbox 360, so don't compare because I do not have any intention to purchase one, but yet I do own two(2) PlayStation 3, One(1) PSP, Sony Ericsson's Multimedia Cell Phone, Sony "60 HDTV, Sony Entertainment Home Theater, Sony LocationFree... well I want the best, I think I bought the best and I have the right to demand the best.

And, for the titles mention above the only one worth to purchase is "Resistance: Fall of Man", yet it did not reach to be a "hit", much better game is "Call Of Duty 4", and also did not reach the market value to level or surpass "Halo" series.

touchae

but there again you are picking on a naming shceme to designate discounted new titles, it dose not have to be a hit to have a GH label..

I still can't see why Halo 3 sold so well tis the worst of the lot and at 60$ for Halo ep 3 it just shows how well mass marketing and name branding works, Bioshock is another highly over rated title, sadly MP3 on the WII is not much better, I hate it whe they water down and "redirect" qauilty for the masses....

Zippy you are fine, having a discussion with a clear and obvious point is one thing but to just say "And still... SONY Entertainment, SUCKS!" is absolutely without a doubt fodder and blatantly "fanboy" in nature...even if he states he owns the system.

Firstly, watch who you are speaking to in that manner. You have already been warned for your inappropriate comments that clearly violate forum rules by their nature. But back on topic, just because you think certain titles weren't hits does not make it so*. This is not a comparative sales "race" of games over multiple consoles, Sony has a guideline for what becomes a GH/PH and those titles have met that requirement* (as quite a few other have too & hopefully more will be available)....why do I always have to repeat myself? I guess society's reading comprehension has dropped dramatically over the years.

If you feel personally offended, just because the way I think about Sony Computer Entertainment... That's too bad!, fortuneatly I can expressed mine opinions.

I do not care if you own the entire AfterDawn.com, my opinions are solely mine, if you don't agree with, then discuss with me about it, instead of assuming to an intimidation.

Reading comprehension works wonders....I will make it perfectly clear for you to understand seeing you like to put words into peoples mouths and make assumptions - keep up with the bad attitude and inappropriate posts of which BOTH violate forum rules if you want (this is about YOU following aD's rules and not about Sony). But understand that since warnings (this is the 3rd) don't seem to do you any good, I wonder if a couple days off would?
