Halo 3, Mass Effect & PGR4 Join Xbox 360 Classics Range

It's hard to see any bad in Microsoft's announcement that PGR4, Mass Effect and Halo 3 will be joining the Xbox 360 Classics range. Admittedly anyone owning an Xbox 360 should already have those games, or at least played them, but for new buyers and the reluctant few refusing to splash out full price for games, the new £19.99 Estimated Retail Price will be more than welcome.

It's a well - and no doubt carefully - chosen selection. Each title is a fantastic representation of its genre on the Xbox 360 - not to mention all three are highly recognisable titles, too.

Part of the intention behind adding Mass Effect, Halo 3 and PGR 4 to the Classics collection is to cement the idea that the Xbox 360 is not an expensive option. Not only does it have a lower entry price than Nintendo's Wii - a potential UK price hike notwithstanding - but it also, offers some of its premiere titles at notably low prices, thanks to the Classics range.

This is good news to all 360 owners and very nice of microsoft. This might help to boost more sale for these games plus might try to stop out more pirate downloading of games too.

I would see it as a price increase myself, if you consider these 3 titles in particular have been selling for between 7 - 15 pounds new consistently (and seemingly everywhere)for a good 5 months or so. It surely is the reason they have chosen them. I'm not against them being in the range of classics though, they certainly are high quality games, its just that it seems like for these 3 games, the idea is to push the price up rather than down for consumers.

@CDouglas, very good point. Completely agree. I think these games retail for roughly around &#16314.99 anyway. The uninformed shoppers might think they have found a bargain- but a few of us know better :D

A cheaper MSRP should mean cheaper prices at retail, though.
