Two New Greatest Hits Coming

Yes, for anyone looking at either MAG or Borderlands, you might just want to wait a little longer as both titles are joining the PS3 Greatest Hits library at the low price of $29.99.

Out of the two though the timing on MAG is perfect as the price cut also comes just before the release of the big MAG 2.0 patch. On the other hand the Borderlands release will not include any of the DLC available, so it might be a better idea to wait for the rumored Game of the Year Edition, which will include all of the DLC. Either way it's a good deal for either of these games.

How is MAG that popular? Like everyone I know doesn't like it.

Also why isn't Killzone 2 a Greatest Hit yet lol. Resistance made it so I know its not because of the M rating. Its just odd that the only game Sony has been hyping the hell out of isn't even on the list when a title like Resistance, which got overshadowed by Killzone, makes it.

Killzone 2 is a greatest hit, has been since April, see the PlayStation Blog entry for it. It became a Greatest Hit at the same time as inFamous, LittleBigPlanet and the God of War Collection.

how is MAG a greatest hit?
I'm one of the few people I know who has ever had it, and when I played it, it was so hard to find a match online

im pretty sure it being a sony first party has alot to do with it. Unless it completely bombs and is totally un believable, sony is most likely going to market their games like this no matter what.

Actually it's more because the criteria is not hard to hit to become a Greatest Hit, all a game has to do is be on the market for 10 months and sell at least 500,000 copies. MAG hit that sales figure back in February so the only thing was the 10 month mark, which we are coming up on, hence the release now.

The thing is, how many titles have done that but have yet to see a Greatest Hits release. Its a deal between Sony and the publisher. Thats why third parties are less likely to see it. I mean Ubisoft does a good job of re releasing greatest hits titles, but COD for example? MW and MW2 have yet to see it, granted i dont think its been exactly 10 months just yet for MW2.

I already know MOH will see it since EA and Sony are buddy buddy with that game. Yet I honestly believe being a first party they are given an edge. For example, MAG sells more, Sony gets more money, so they throw it into Greatest Hits the second sales go down or they want to spike interest. Meanwhile third parties would need to negotiate a deal.

I'm surprised that MW and MW2 haven't seen it yet.
I think MAG had a lot of interest before the beta came out because of how new the concept was and people liked it when it first came out because it was different then MW2 but then after a while, you got the same old bull**** that you did in MW2 but even worse because there was more players, plus even more problems.

they're probably trying to increase interest for the patch that will be "fixing" MAG

I guess MW and WaW was added with MAG. However my point stands. MW should of been added last year, WaW got there pretty fast and has been out almost two years. MW2 hasn't seen it and its been 10 months in September (around the same time MAG hit 10).

This is Activision, unlike the other publishers they waited to sell as many copies as possible of the game at full price or slightly reduced prices before making them Greatest Hits, since Modern Warfare did much better in terms of long term sales vs. World at War it's not surprising that both are becoming Greatest Hits just now. Modern Warfare 2 won't be a Greatest Hit for at least another year, if not more.

Thus everyone should buy it used, that way Activision see's no sales and lowers the price.

that's what I've been saying for a while now, we shouldn't give them more money because they're such a stupid company

Yeah but they targeted the right audience, just like Wii. The idiots that will gobble anything up with the name on it. You could throw COD on a used Toilet Paper sheet and people would spend 15 bucks on it.
