    Does anybody know if Microsoft plans to release a line of Greatest Hits/Games for a low price such as the PS2 does?
    I've heard rummors of Microsoft coming out soon with a "Platinum Series" line up of games for 19.99, anyboby know if this is true?

    I saw a link either here or on another forum. I think the first 3 are Max Payne, Munch's Odyssey, and PGR. The MSRP is 19.99 for some and 29.99 for others IIRC.

    I think the titles so far announced are:

    Project Gotham Racing
    Amped
    Spider-Man
    Max Payne
    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
    SpyHunter
    Oddworld Munch's Odyssey

    Between $19.99 & $29.99 - no official criteria for choosing titles - DVD cases are actually platinum colored according to some...Best Buy has some of them on their website already.

    don't worry about it Brian, I did try to do the "search" function first but I got a message saying it wasn't funtioning due to a server "overload" or something like that...........

    No HALO?

    Sounds odd.. but i guess it is a system seller, they'll keep the price where it is...

    Maybe, but we had it with Halo too. GAT3 will be Greatest hits before Halo is.

    I saw some of these platinum hits games when I was out today. The cases look REALLY cool, much better than the originals. I saw Amped, PGR, and Max Payne. The cover art tends to have more white than the old games, and the cases are a silvery gray. PGR didn't look as good as the other two, but Max Payne had about the slickest packaging I've ever seen for a game. It's nice to see someone finally get it right when it comes to budget games instead of adding ugly green and red stripes.

    So, which of these budget titles would you recommend? I already picked up Munch for $15 used from EB. Max Payne I would definitely be interested in except I already beat it on the PC. PGR ... maybe, except I don't dig the whole "kudos" thing. I just want to WIN the race, I don't care about "style"...
    That leaves Amped and Tony Hawk, I guess. I wish they'd put Rally Sport Challenge on this list. That's a racing game I can really get into.

    I don't think that PGR will always be $15, I think it's just for this week at CC.
