New Legend
==========

??? meaning some sources, but no proof

**UNCONFIRMED** meaning just that, other than Wikipedia, I found nothing to confirm its existence.

Bold meaning, as always denotes new additions to the list

### MSRP Priced Higher than $19.99

*** meaning, contains new material not in the original game release and as always if I can find out what it is new I'll add it in the parenthesis.

==================================================

Now featuring over 300 games!!!

About 1/8th of the total of what was released in the US. Last update for the year. Maybe ever, who knows.

305 Games Total (approximate total)

Games in Bold Denote New to the list since last update

??? meaning some sources found, but no proof
**UNCONFIRMED** meaning just that, other than Wikipedia, I found nothing to confirm its existence.

NOTE: On the Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance Lim. Promo. Ed. was released only as a preorder bonus for purchasing MK: Armageddon. As such it is available in very limited quantities and comes with a new insert that is not available in the regular GH version of the game as well as a slightly altered cover fact on the DVD with the words "Promotional Copy Not For Resale" this is also printed on the insert as well. Midway did a similar promotion with Shadow Hearts: Covenant by giving Shadow Hearts away for free.

As a side note, i hate the GH concept. There are tons of games that sell well past 400,000 and are over 9 months old, but are still full-price. The GH moniker is just a cover for "games that cost too much to make and whose sales are lagging so we have to recoup our losses somehow". For example, FFX sold well over 400,000 and came out in 2001, but it's STILL $40!!!

Uhh, when you sell 400,000 copies of a game, you really don't have many losses to recoup.

Thats because FFX is still selling well at $40. Why lower it $20 when you're still making money off of it?

The greatest hits is a marketing concept that proved well in the PSone era. The point was that when a title hit a saturation point of the target audience (the people who would pay $40-$50 for the title) as well as a certain number of copies shipped (note not sold, explains why every acclaim title is a GH :roll: ), they would give the publishers a substantial royalty break on the future units shipped, if the title complied with the greatest hits guidlines.

This concept actually shipped many more units and proved to be profitable for both SCEA and the publishers. SCEA was able to get additional royalties on titles that would have most likely been shelved because of market saturation. Publishers were able to sell more units because of favorable royalty rates to sell units at a reduced cost.

Units were sold to those who would never have purchased the title at a cost of $39.99+, but became interested in it at a reduced rate. This also was done to counter the used/pirate markets, by making new, quality, licensed product available for a unheard of rate.

Publishers are not obligated to take part in this program, however they are offered the opportunity to. Games like the Final Fantasies, DDRs, etc, that do meet the guidlines, may opt to stay out of the series because selling at full price, or even a slighter discount may be more profitable to them at the royalty rate that they are presently at.

Any news on Kingdom Hearts? I've seen the art for the new box on amazon and EB but everywhere I've been still has it listed at $50. In addition Best Buy since they have no record of an upcoming price drop (not that I trust that any). Also, any chance Kingdom Hearts is going to premier at the $30 point instead of $20?

Dragonball Z: Budokai is a GH now/soon. On the commercial for the port of the GC version, it also shows the PS2 one in the GH packaging.
