Xbox 360 Goes Platinum

September 20, 2006

Microsoft announced today that the 360 would be getting a Platinum Hits lineup of it’s own. The first wave of titles to get this designation and price cut are Perfect Dark Zero, Project Gotham Racing 3, Kameo, and Need for Speed Most Wanted. Games marked as Platinum Hits for the 360 will carry a $29.99 price tag.

This is definitely good news for those of you waiting to make the 360 jump at a later date as some of the best titles will be available at a very attractive price point. The second wave of PH titles will arrive in the spring of 2007. Different regions will be getting different PH lineups that are more tailored to the specific tastes of gamers in those regions.
