Microsoft launches ‘Platinum Hits’ range


Microsoft is cutting the price of some of the best-selling games for the Xbox, joining Sony and Nintendo in offering a range of discounted titles.

More than a dozen games are going to be offered for around $19.99 as part of Microsoft’s new Platinum Hits range, including Amped and Project Gotham Racing. A notable absence is the Xbox’s biggest title to date, the first person shooter Halo, will not be included and continue to sell for $49.

Sony launched a discounted game range for its PlayStation 2 console last year, with Nintendo announcing one for its GameCube last week.
