Sony Announces New PlayStation Collections for PS3

Bumper bundles

With the PlayStation 3 set to enjoy its most mainstream year yet, Sony’s dreamt up a cost effective way for newcomers to catch up with all of the content they’ve missed. The platform holder’s newly announced "Collections" line is designed to bundle together multiple classics into various affordable packages.

Starting 28th August in North America, you’ll be able to snap up the Ratchet & Clank Collection, God of War Saga and inFamous Collection. We already know about Ratchet's re-mastered compilation, so let’s take a closer look at the other announcements.

The God of War Saga is perhaps the most impressive of the bunch, bundling – wait for it – the God of War Collection, the God of War Origins Collection, God of War III, a handful of exclusive extras and a one month subscription to PlayStation Plus. That’s a lot of content.

The inFamous Collection is similarly stacked, with inFamous, inFamous 2 and inFamous: Festival of Blood all up for grabs. You’ll also net additional missions, character costumes, power ups and weapon styles.

The compilations will hit North American store shelves on 28th August from $29.99. We’re going to assume that the enormous God of War Saga will cost a shade more, but it’s still likely to be under $59.99. More bundles are set to be revealed in the coming weeks. Are you tempted by any of the new announcements?

Tough choice ahead for me. I still haven't bought God of War Collection I and II, but already have GoW III. Moneywise, it would be cheaper to buy this Saga collection, but I don't like the idea of buying III again. Decisions, decisons...

GoW is very, very tempting!

Only played the first two briefly and the demo for 3, feel the UK price would probably be £60 though, could be cheaper to pick up the separates though.

@fchinaski You could perhaps sell your copy of God of War III and put it towards the price of the collection. Might be the cheapest option.

I'm not that interested in Ratchet & Clank and I all ready have Infamous 1 and 2, but the GOW one will be mine.

Considered getting the GOW Origins Collection with a free DualShock Controller from Target.com for $60. But this collection makes me very intrigued...

@UNC5052 The God of War one is an absolute bargain, though. If you've never played them before, make sure you pick that up. That's insane.

@irken004
Killzone isn't really worth playing again, 2 & 3 are great though- and a PS3 compatible killxone: Liberation could be great fun!
