Yeah, yeah, Halo Reach is out (my review goes up this weekend), but in slightly cooler news, Atlus has announced that Demon's Souls is the latest member of Sony's PlayStation 3 Greatest Hits lineup. From Software's challenging dark fantasy RPG (and winner of numerous accolades) is headed to retail in a new packaging, which means first and second run copies will disappear from some retailers that make room for new stock. As a longtime Atlus supporter since 1992, yup, they're getting even more of my money...
Oh... It's a crazy myth, by the way that GH re-releases are "inferior" in any way (some actually pack more content onto the game disc than the original release). In other words, don't go nuts and over-pay for that original edition once you start seeing the GH game at retail. Atlus doesn't make a holy dime off overpriced auction site or "collector's" priced editions, folks. Anyway, from the press release:
"Very few games reach the esteemed PlayStation 3 system Greatest Hits status," commented Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus. "Those that do are among the very finest the platform has to offer, combining critical success, tremendous popularity, and exceptional quality. Demon's Souls represents some of the biggest risks, loftiest goals, and most daring innovations ever embarked upon by a developer. Its arrival into the exclusive ranks of PlayStation 3 Greatest Hits validates its designers' achievements and helps bring their unique vision to a larger audience. Priced to own at only $29.99, there has never been a better time to find out what everyone's been talking about."
Yeah, what he said - go get the game if you haven't already!
