Microsoft Announces 'Best Of' Platinum Hits Games

Looking for Platinum Hits versions of Platinum Hits games with a whole new title added to the already crazy-cool name of Platinum Hits but still as much game for $10 less (say that four times fast)?

Well, I’ll now explain it in a comprehendible way. Microsoft is releasing new ‘Best Of’ versions of the already best-selling Platinum Hits Xbox games for $10 less than their already reduced rates of $20. The best-selling Platinum Hits and the ones getting the reduced-price treatment are as follows:

  • Counter-Strike
    Project Gotham Racing 2
    Soulcalibur II
    Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon
    Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Island Thunder
    Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3
    Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell
    Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
    Fuzion Frenzy
    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
No extra content has been added to any of these re-releases, but for a mere $10, if you have been eyeing these titles for awhile but haven’t picked them up yet, then there hasn’t been a better time than now.
  • I’ll probably pick up a copy of Fuzion Frenzy, the underrated Xbox-launch party game that everyone knows by the demo that was included in Halo. Hey, Fuzion Frenzy was more fun that Nintendo’s mediocre Mario Party 5 (which was a case of the same ol’, same ol’ for the aging series), and it’s now a hell of a lot cheaper, too ($10 vs. $40, respectively).

This is a cool idea. It'd be great if Sony could follow suit with some of their GH titles. Actually, it'd be great if Nintendo did this too, but I don't see it happening there.

Any of the Ubisoft titles are well worth it if you have XBL, especially Ghost Recon Island Thunder. Ubi tends to provide a lot of downloadable content via XBL. I think Island Thunder has over a dozen downloads, including maps, weapons and game types.

But I'm also with you on Fuzion Frenzy.

Morrowind for 10$??? This means less than 0.00002$ per gaming hour. Quite a bargain!

Wasnt too keen on Morrowind myself. Prefered Deus Ex Invisible War. Is that a fair comparison?

Well... The first Deus Ex was more RPGish, thus more comparable to Morrowind, but Deus Ex 2 will do just fine :)

According to Gamespot, a few more titles have been added:

Enter The Matrix
Shrek 2
Tony Hawk's Underground
True Crime: Streets Of LA

Also, this is the "first wave" so more will be on the way.

What did you guys think of Enter the Matrix? I know it was buggy as hell, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. I just had so much fun kicking the crap out of all those guys Matrix-style....

It was a decent rental for me back in 2003, but I'd rather play Max Payne anyday.

At least on the PC, each and every Matrix game was an insult to humanity...

I heard in the Matrix online it was very difficult to cancel your membership... Sega, you sneaky bastards...

I haven't played Enter The Matrix myself, but one of my friends enjoyed the PS2 version. He's a big Matrix fan though, so if you're not, your mileage may vary.
