Xbox Platinum Hits Lineup Revealed

Console budget libraries are mysterious things—some companies trumpet their existences at every opportunity, while other treat them as some kind of dirty little secret to sweep under the rug. Microsoft, fortunately, is proud of their budget heritage: the Xbox $19.99 Platinum Hits library is hitting stores across the nation today, and MS was nice enough to send us a list of all 16 games in the initial lineup.

The criteria for Platinum Hit status are a little bit more lenient than those for the PlayStation 2's Greatest Hits library. All you have to do is be on the shelf for nine months and "be a top seller and have positive consumer and editorial feedback," according to Microsoft's release. In other words, there's no announced minimum sales target games have to reach before they qualify. Nice of 'em.
