All the Budget Gamers Rejoice!

March 13, 2006

Best of Platinum Hits? What is that? Well, it looks like Microsoft it trying to extend the shelf life of some excellent games even further by doing a “Best of Platinum Hits” where all the selected titles retail at $9.99. While most of these titles can already be found in the bargain bin at this price, that’s still a great deal! Just 2-3 years ago we were paying $50 a piece for these games. Now they’re $10!

People wonder why I’m a budget gamer…
