Shadow of the Colossus, SOCOM 3, Jak X: Combat Racing among PlayStation 2 games with new $20 price tag.
Sony today announced that five more PlayStation 2 games have qualified for Greatest Hits status and will be repackaged and repriced beginning August 6.
The five new titles are Shadow of the Colossus, the adventure game from the developers of Ico; Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, the latest in the franchise about the raccoon burglar; SOCOM 3: US Navy SEALs, a third-person online shooter; Jak X: Combat Racing, a car combat game featuring Jak and Daxter; and Ratchet: Deadlocked, Insomniac Games' platformer.
The additions bring the total tally of PS2 Greatest Hits games to 169, which Sony boasts is more than any other system. In addition to getting their Greatest Hits club card, the games will be repackaged with new box art and sold for $19.99.
JAK AND DAXTER RULES! I hope a new game is made before they stop making games for PS2. I might not be getting PS3
Games become greatest hits after selling over 400,000 copies in the north american region. not sure about other regions though.
Shadow DEFINITELY deserves to be a greatest hit, SOCOM too, but I'm not to sure about the other 3...
Final Fantasy XII hasn't even come to america and is already greatest hits!!! FF XII has sold 3 million copies in Japan only!!! I can't wait to play it
Why do people pay $20 bucks for greatest hits games they can get used for usually half that price???
SoC is prolly the best game I have ever played on a console. And it moving down to GH is great for those players who didnt have the courage to pick it up at 40bucks. PS...God of War is GH, PSdual_wielder
Very good. 20$ just for five games although it's nothing very special but still it's cheap. Good move.
I think they have to sell a specific amount of units. The talked about it somewhere on the site, but i forget.
Good, I can finaly play Shadow.. It one of the games I have been meaning to get but never got around to it.
Shadow of the Colossus, the adventure game from the developers of Ico - Yeah I know the game!!!!!!! And HOORAY for the repricing
Shadow of the Colossus turned out much better than ICO. I could not stand playing as that whiny little kid with the stick. and this sim coming from sombody WHO loves the strange, but I hated that kid. I hate most kids I don't like kids. I had to stop half way though it.
lol going to go get Shadow Of The Colossus, also isnt Starwars Battlefront 2 gone Greatest Hits also?
wow, i got Shadow for $40, thinking it would never be a greatest hits. this is a good day for mankind!
Ahh, it always pays to wait. Sometimes you can't though. And when I say you, I actually mean myself lol.
At least 3 out of the 5 that I know have been greatest hits in Australia for 3 monthes already.(Jak X,Ratchet: Deadlocked and Socom 3)
omg... shadow and ratchet deadlocked.... mmm, im going to buy the 2nd one... cus i already have shadow :D
