I just bought Nioh only to discover I already had a sealed copy. Thanks Cheapassgamer for compelling me to buy so many games I have no clue what I already own!

The picture in the OP shows the new European additions. The US is actually getting new 8 Playstation Hits titles:

Thanks.  The story I found mentioned Lego Batman 3, Mad Max and SW Battlefront in past tense.  Just thinking "when did they become hits?"  as I don't remember seeing red cased versions of them.    Also have never see red cased versions of Lego Marvel Super Heroes or Lego Jurassic World out in the wild either.

What is the point of these? All of them have been cheaper at some point, many much cheaper. And they are just standard games? The Bloodborne complete edition was like $12 last fall.

The possibility of these titles being added to next year's Sony PS4 "Days of Play" sale promo is surely worth some excitement, right?

Probably due to the exclusive Predator game the devs are making for PlayStation at the moment.

And there goes any hope I had for the Predator game. Rip.

Rebuying games that you already own in an attempt to save money is the CAG way.

I'm glad to see Mad Max. I love that game.

I've done that too many times to count. I really need to catalogue my games.

Some people really love those God awful red covers...gross.

PS: it's not like those games haven't been sub $19.00 bucks in the past months anyways....and with the better original cover.

Red color cases don't bother me. What does is not matching the blue case or clear case (ps3). Maybe they should just make all red color (original, first print, etc) if they love that much. Then when the Greatest hits come out, it'll all be the same. :roll:

I believe the logic that goes into it is that the "Greatest Hits" title and the color both serve as a badge of honor, and to grab your attention on the shelf. Anyone who cares about the color of the case are a small minority and, if it mattered so much, could have gotten the game at any point before.

Like you said before, there are plenty of first-run copies out there that are still brand new or used copies with the original blue cases.  Why a collector would complain about these games becoming Greatest Hits titles is beyond me, and this is coming from someone who used to be a collector himself.  Anyone who is buying these games at this point are probably patient gamers who just wanted to wait in order to save a bit of money.  That's who these games are aimed at by now.  If others don't want to buy a red case copy of the game, they don't have to do so.

Man I REALLY just want those red cases to swap out a few titles...

 

Kind of getting bored of the blue cases. Spider-Man would look better with a red case!

I like how Best Buy has updated God of War to have the Playstation Hits box art, but left the price at $28.

I love how some adds promote the games with TLOU right on top of the pile despite it coming out free next month for PS+. Bad timing much?

some people don't have PS+

 

I for one may pick up GoW for collection purposes. I had already bought it around $40+ and traded it in for around $30+ after platinuming it back in the day

I’m surprised Skyrim and Witcher 3 haven’t become PS GH yet. Also, not as streamlined as PS4’s greatest hits, but Xbox finally has some of their own floating around now. I just picked up a Bioshock collection greatest hits for Xbox.

Hm, these have all been $20 forever anyway ... exciting news if you like red cases I guess.

There will be larger re-prints of these titles available in the future...allowing for sweet sales discount during the holidays (i.e. Black Friday) or during specialty promo days (i.e. Sony's State of Play or GameStop's Pro-Membership Days).

I wouldn't mind getting GT Sport for $10 or less.

Tell me about it. I bought a copy at $28 yesterday and I'm going to make them give me the reduced price on Friday (it's being held for me until Friday). I always hated the Playstation Hits box. It sticks out from the collection.

that's why i only buy from gs, they dont pull bs like that

 

Many websites and retailers still have the old prices since the start date is officially Oct.4th .  GameStop has experienced numerous errors in their printed ads and website mis-matched images throughout the years, so I would not be too harsh judging their competitors, though.
