Five added to PS2 Greatest Hits

Shadow of the Colossus, SOCOM 3, Jak X: Combat Racing among PlayStation 2 games with new $20 price tag.

122 Comments

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.

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.

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.

Good for those games but it doesn't matter since like it makes a difference to the game itself...
