Three excellent games at a cheap price that are much better than anything the Crapstation 3 has.

They're all great games, about time Halo 3 went to half-price.

However Mass Effect and PGR4 can already be found for even less if you shop around.

Got Mass Effect for £7 secondhand.

I'm tired of seeing Nazistop ripping people off selling Halo3 for $35 used.

What's the deal with the classics collection? How is it decided whether a game will be added? I thought it was simply based on "copies sold" but if that's true why isn't Call of Duty 4 "classic" yet? Has Activision simply refused to agree to a classic release because it's still selling so well?

There is no "rule" that triggers a game going into classic versioning. It's purely a business decision. Imagine someone who is on the fence about buying a system. They can now get some of the better games on the system without the increased sticker shock at the checkout counter. Imagine saving up X hundred and having the register ask you for X+1 hundred dollars because you wanted a game. Most people could see that coming, but it hurts no less in this platform-mediated market world we live in.
