To get on the Platinum they need to sell 1 million in the PAL region. So the games did very well to only take 8 onths to get to the Platinum stage. It is no wonder than Uncharted and Ratchet got special editions in PAL regions only if thats the case.

That's not true, I'm afraid.

While technically acheiving "platinum" status means having sold a million, Sony changed the rules in PAL regions quite some time ago. The target is now only 400,000 units, but it must be 400,000 in PAL regions ALONE.

its also a business decision nothing else, another tactic against swarming used sales

silvacrest2652d ago

its hard to buy a used game when you can get a new platinum for a similar price

Cajun Chicken2652d ago

Anyway, aside from that, this is great news for many PS3 users.

Almost makes me feel jealous, but y'know, I did play them that long ago.

jack_burt0n2652d ago

lol no its done as punishment its clever i never buy platinum not even psp stuff :)

Mc Fadge2652d ago

They do it that way to make it look cheap, but they should be trying to make them look awesome instead.

sikbeta2652d ago

Definitely, like the Greatest Hits RED Boxes that look so cheap...

karlowma2652d ago

How does the color make it look cheap? The boxes are EXACTLY the same, save for the color difference. I think it's nice that I can save some bucks and pick up all the great titles from years past.

silvacrest2652d ago

if you really hate the yellow so much just print out the original and put it in the case

BYE2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

The yellow is loosing Sony money, it's their own fault and stupidity. I hope they realize that.

If they were red like Greatest Hits in the US/Canada I'd buy a heck of a lot more.

I paid 40+ for both of them very close to release. ACiT is the funnier game IMO. Yeah UC2 is mindblowing, but ACIT is brilliant, pure fun. Love it.

raWfodog2652d ago

Good news. Now I can pick up ACiT for cheap 'cuz I'm a cheap bastard :)

Love the series. I've played them all, even Quest for Booty.

snakebite362652d ago

ACIT is a really fun game, but I liked the weapons from ToD more.

gamingisnotacrime2652d ago

Are a little unbalanced, it makes it easy to overpower any opponent which can be pretty fun but lacks challenge. ACiT is well balanced and all out mayhem. I just finished it and i loved it. Should have picked this bad boy at launch

snakebite362652d ago

Yeah, I guess TOD weapons are unbalanced, but I just miss the flamethrower :(

nycredude2652d ago

ACIT is a criminally underated and under appreciated game. More people need to go buy this game. Brilliant!
