There are ten more titles getting added to the "Greatest Hits" library for Sony's PS3. According to Sony, a title needs to surpass "an impressive sales threshold" and be generally well received in order to earn this honor. Which games fit the bill? I'm glad you asked!
- God of War: Collection
- Killzone 2
- Resistance 2
- Dead Space
- Fight Night Round 4
- Resident Evil 5
- Soulcalibur IV
- UFC 2009 Undisputed
Instead of being Greatest Hits, you could also call this "some games Chad needs to play since he just got a PS3." I guess Greatest Hits sounds better, though. These should hit retailers in the next few weeks at the $30 price point.
