Anything you can do I can do better, except I will veto more first-gen tat than you...

Source - press release

At its second annual retail and publishers conference, Sony Computer Entertainment America has today announced it intention to launch a 'Greatest Hits' series of videogames on PlayStation 2. As the equivalent to Europe's Platinum line, it has similar criteria for qualification: sales must be in excess of 400,000 units and the title must have been on the market for more than nine months. SCEA has announced that initial first party releases will include Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec, Twisted Metal : Black, Dark Cloud and the slightly less-well-known ATV Offroad Fury. Combined sales of these games are said to top 2.8 million. SCEA has not detailed when the Greatest Hits will be allowed to launch, but it shouldn't be long. Speaking in a prepared statement, SCEA senior veepee Andrew House said, "Historically, we have always taken a very consumer-centric approach to the market. We are focused on presenting users with the best entertainment experience at compelling prices, further extending the PlayStation 2 value proposition by consistently passing on savings to the consumer. With such strong software support for PlayStation 2 we now are able to offer must-have games for around $25." Related Feature - PS2 goes Platinum
