I like the greatest hits system, but wow… these are quite possibly the ugliest most uselessly cluttered covers I’ve ever seen. I think Sony went in the right direction with the new PS3 logo, but all the extra tags, logos, and text all over the new covers is just really really unappealing. These greatest hits covers just make it even worse.

Why should one believe anything Sony says…

Well, that is an easy question to respond. Because ‘Sony Makes.Believe’, We believe that anything Sony says, they make ir real. ;-)

Greatest Hits… Is that 20 or 30 clams?

Also, what ever happened to the PSP Greatest Hits? We know that the Go is trying to be pushed, but where are the reissuing of classics for that system? Heck, Dissidia should have been a major contender there, along with Hot Shots PSP 2 and (can’t belive I’m saying this) Secret Agent Clank.

C’mon Sony. The PS3 is picking up, but why abandon your portable? Is it that hard to TRY?

God of War Collection was already lowered to $29.99. Why did you even bother to reprint it with that Greatest hits box?

Every single one of them is worth the 30 bucks. But i wouldnt i pay for the UFC game. Im going to pick up Infamous when i get some extra money. I platinumed it and still want to play it.

I have all but Fight Night and UFC. Not my kinda games, so nothing good here for me, but TONS of good stuff here for others who may not have picked these up yet. I’ve been trying to get my brother to buy Resistance 2 for a while now so we can play the co-op together. Maybe he’ll get it now.

Your Desired Resolution:
Continued support of all previously advertised features in future Firmware so that a customer’s product does not lose functionality due to the whims of the company.

If continued support is not possible, a refund should be in order since the customer was led to make a purchase based on advertised features and later had said features switched in an unforseeable manner.

This is the #1 reason I love Playstation 3. When was the last time you saw a players choice nintendo game? If i were to go to the store right now and buy a good nintendo game,(A.K.A. a game worth playing) a game that is three years old, is still on sale for $50. On top of that there are thousands of wii games out there and only a handfull are worth playing. Lol I own all 8.

lostinplainsight said:

April 1st, 10:20 am

wow you can get most of those games less then 30 bucks already way to stay ahead of the curve.

“God of War Collection was already lowered to $29.99. Why did you even bother to reprint it with that Greatest hits box?”

I work in retail, and if you put a “sale” sign on an item, even if it’s not on sale, you’ll sell more. Same philosophy here. Even if the price isn’t changing, making people think they’re getting a deep discount (and face it, it IS lower than the price of 2 greatest hits PS2 games), will convince more people.

Cool finally my waiting had paid off. Totally picking up kill zone 2. Now where can i buy this from?

adventfire said:

April 1st, 10:28 am

I don’t think this is an April fools joke seeing that a lot of these have been “only” $29.99 at gamestop for awhile now and even cheaper if you buy them used. A Sony April fools joke would be “We’ve finally decided to give 100% support for our over priced joke of a handheld system the PSP Go!”

I have to bring this up, because I just bought a Greatest Hits title for the first time the other day.

Sony, can you PLEASE change the packaging for Greatest Hits titles? I’m referring to the box itself, that disgustingly red plastic nightmare. Every time I open the case, I feel like I want to just throw the thing away, it’s that horrible. I understand wanting to attract attention to the product on the self, but is it not possible to just have the top bar of the case in red, along with the top of the insert? Leaving the rest of the case clear?

I’m looking at it right now, and it’s just awful. I know this is just my opinion, but if they are going to be like this permanently, I’m going to either look for original copies, or just not buy the games. It’s really that big of a turn-off for me.

can someone at sony tell me about heavenly sword?
will that game ever get a price drop in price or what.

krae_man said:

I just think greatest hits boxart is terrible.

tj5678 said:

April 1st, 10:32 am

Any psp greatest hits as well?

GooieGreen said:

April 1st, 10:37 am

$19.99 is the current selling price of Dead Space at Best Buy. 29.99 is also the price of some of these games, if not lower, already.

I’m surprised at you, Kaze, you fell for this joke.

NarcMonkey said:

April 1st, 10:43 am

Or you could get them used on Amazon for less… XD

lostinplainsight said:

April 1st, 10:44 am

joker5888 said:

April 1st, 10:45 am

zMd113 said:

Mcmax3000 said:

April 1st, 10:52 am

Awwwwwww… I JUST bought LBP GOTY with my PS3 for full price…

If it wasn’t so awesome I’d be sad right now.

morrislevy said:

April 1st, 10:55 am

I will be so angry with you, PlayStation, if this is an April Fools Joke. P.S. God of War Collection was and now still is $30, with the “Greatest Hits” title. Therefore, no change, and I’m not impressed. Also, what happened to the “Greatest Hits” being $20? I like that much more.

robertmc8 said:

April 1st, 10:56 am

It be awesome if those hits be on ps3 store :)

ConvergeJack said:

April 1st, 10:59 am

I will definitely pick up inFAMOUS and the GoW Collection (along with GoW3) ASAP when I get a new TV, which will be in a week or two. :D

Onarum said:

April 1st, 11:17 am

oh wow, a bunch of games I paid 60 bucks for now very much cheaper… yeah that’s great…

what am I supposed to be happy about this?

sharpshoot said:

April 1st, 11:22 am

That’s a april fools joke just like the firmware update one lol

plaztiksyke said:

April 1st, 11:28 am

Let me get this straight — Soul Calibur IV is being re-released in the year 2010 and *still* doesn’t have trophies?

Also, why has Ghostbusters not been released as a Greatest Hit? It sold over a million units according to Atari!

Hopefully Mirror’s Edge gets the attention it deserves at some point, as well.

angelspawn77 said:

April 1st, 11:35 am

awesome! i wasnt planning on getting killzone since my friend let me borrow it back near the release, but for 30$ ill definitely be picking it up sooner or later, ive been planning for awhile to pick up inFamous since it was dropped to 40, but now that its 30 im definitely getting it soon. I already have most of the others and I dont want soul calibur. I got deadspace for 20 last year, great game.
Also to the people complaining about GOW collection, come on its 30 for 2 great games, thats a great deal.

Zarxce said:

April 1st, 11:37 am

What’s cheaper? Resident Evil 5 Gold edition, or RE5 + buying all the DLC seperately? I’m going to have to work that out sometime…

I already got Dead Space for 19.99 brand new like…mid last year. Does this mean the price went UP?

I’ll probably pick up Killzone 2, InFamous, Resistance 1 and 2 and possibly Soul Caliber IV though. Mmm…cheap gaming.

JSC31994 said:

April 1st, 11:40 am

Finally i can pick up Killzone!!!

Gunwing said:

April 1st, 11:45 am

Well I have the games from that list I want, and while I would like to pick up dead Space. (PS3 version has enhanced textures, performance, and AA over the box version)

Sadly I’m working on buying a new 32inch HDTV for my bedroom. My current 26inch is too small for my view distance. (20 feet away it looks super small)

ANybody have sugestions on an HDTV? My budget max is 500 bucks…….

Could I get one of these in exchange for my removed OtherOS functionality I paid for?

Donjaylpz said:

April 1st, 11:45 am

me los voy a comprar todos

onslaughtree said:

April 1st, 11:49 am

at $30 I will pick up RE5. I always wanted the game , but the controls turned me off, but $30 is a good price point….kudos

Demonhunter84 said:

April 1st, 11:59 am


Dead Space doesn’t come with any of the DLC same with Soul Calibur 4 you’ll have to buy those from PSN.

LivingMetal said:

April 1st, 12:00 pm

Dead Space and resistance for me off the bat. I’ll buy Killzone 2 later down the line.

Demonhunter84 said:

April 1st, 12:01 pm


Gold Edition includes all of the DLC on the disc while RE5(regular edition) you’ll have to fork over the money for the DLC on PSN. I would go with Gold Edition for that extra $20 instead.

Demonhunter84 said:

April 1st, 12:03 pm

So when exactly can we expect these titles to be priced at $29.99? I was at Target today and saw Little Big Planet GOTY edition but it was priced at $59.99. I heard that tomorrow we can pick these titles up for $29.99.

Solid-Snake-Eyes said:

April 1st, 12:18 pm

Did God of War Collection really sell that well or was it just $30 already so might as well throw it in? If it sold well then how about making some more remastered PS2 games? One that I’d like to see is Jak 2.

Francision69 said:

April 1st, 12:25 pm

I’m liking the games but why does the box have to look so ugly?

Marlon1217 said:

April 1st, 12:26 pm

My brother just bought LittleBigPlanet: game of the year edition for 60 dollars….

TwinDad said:

April 1st, 12:42 pm

We’ll be rolling out ten, yes TEN, new PS3 “Greatest Hits” titles at retailers in U.S. and Canada over the course of the next few weeks.

Might take a few weeks for retailers to reflect new pricing.


April 1st, 12:49 pm

Hey I might have bought LBP but this new one might not work since I refuse to update to the 3.21 downgrade.

Thanks Sony!

Zezzler said:

April 1st, 12:56 pm

thats awesome… i only have one complaint. the awards plastered all over the box art… we already know that Killzone and inFAMOUS are Friggin Win games. i don’t want it ruining my lovely box art. they could at least put it on the back. but i REALLY like the new PS3 logos for the games, it will match with my others :D

LILBUDDY2000 said:

April 1st, 12:56 pm

Holy Smokes! I can’t believe you dropped lbp to 29.99, that’s a great deal for this gens best game.

SNAKE-EYES73 said:

April 1st, 1:18 pm

Cool now I can buy INFAMOUS for less.I hope they add more in the future..
