Like big over-the-top action? Hate big over-the-top prices?
Then you’re in luck. Far Cry 2, Saints Row 2 and WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009 are all going Platinum (Greatest Hits) and will be available for Â£25 ($30) each. Saints Row 2 was overshadowed by Grand Theft Auto IV when released but many people felt it offered the light hearted mayhem alternative to Rockstar’s title. Far Cry 2 was also criminally overlooked and offers hours of gameply before you even dive into the multiplayer community which is still going strong. Whilst WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009 is pretty much the best wrestling game out on the console.
Worringly i’m seeing a rise in Platinum game prices. I remember them always being Â£20 in the UK and now Amazon.co.uk lists them as RRP Â£24.99. I hope that this along with the Modern Warfare 2 Price increase is not a new market direction.
