Good things come to those who wait. Today, THQ announced that one of its top-selling hits from last year, Pandemic's Destroy All Humans!, has reached Platinum Hits and Greatest Hits status on the Xbox and PlayStation 2, respectively. With the distinction comes new packaging and a new price tag of $19.99. In the game, which was released in June 2005, players assume the role of an alien trying to save its species from extinction...by extracting the brain stems of humans during the 1950s. Destroy All Humans! is rated T for Teen.
Been there, bought that. Good game but the 50s kinda make the game a little depressing. I don't know why but the 2nd game makes it more up.
One person types "Who cares?" while another rants on a slow news day, the internet is filled with facinating idiots. It's a fun game, especially when you get to pick up chickens and throw them at farmers.
The gameplay was good but not spectacular. However, I thought the theme and style of the entire game was awesome. It really puts you right into the 1950's alien scare. When we look back on that era today, it just looks plain comical. And it has some hillarious unlockable old 50's alien movies. One of them is about an hour long!
bored88, Games are become Greatest Hits (PS2) & Platinum Hits (XBOX) after they sell a high amount of copies. This is great, I haven't purchased this game but since it is cheap now, I will purchase the game in the future.
halo 2 has *reached* platinum status.. 6 million copies worldwide will do that. the reason it hasnt gone *platinum* is because platinum just means that the game was a really big seller but nobody is buying it anymore so they lowered the price 40 or 30 bucks so the ppl who dont own can buy it. ppl are still buying halo 2 and halo 2 merchandise and stuff so bungie and microsoft would be losing money by lowering prices on halo 2.
What do you mean somebody bought that game? Platinum status means MILLION copies. So, yes, a million people bought it.
wasn't a bad game. ANd also every game in the market is going to start cutting down prices eventually so current gen games don't get boring and everyone goes to next-gen.
Is it merely a price drop for product that doesn't sell, or have people really purchased thousands of copies?
