Microsoft to start $10 hits program

Popular Xbox titles to sell for $9.99; Microsoft confirms 16 participating games in program's "first wave."


Greatest Hits, Player's Choice, Platinum Hits… Whatever the program is called, each current-generation system has a discount program where older, popular games see their shelf lives extended, usually with the help of $20 price tags. While the discounting usually stops there, Microsoft today announced a new Best of Platinum Hits program that will push the price of admission for 16 of its 100-plus Platinum Hits titles down to $9.99. The new prices are set to take effect this month.
