Sony’s Platinum product manager, Phil Lynch, has said that the firm is delighted with the consumer response to the PlayStation 3 Platinum range, saying the company is “delighted.”
“We are delighted with the response to the Platinum campaign from consumers and retail partners alike,” he said.
“With Platinum ranges already established on PS2 and PSP, the addition of a PS3 range has been very well supported at bricks and mortar retail with dedicated Platinum bays in-store.
“A game becomes Platinum whenever it sells more than 400,000 units in the PAL territories,” he continued.
“For consumers, it’s a great reference and a good seal of approval. This is especially useful for the gifting market, as there is so much choice these days within the range. The iconic yellow stands out and the buyer knows that the game has already been enjoyed by several hundred thousands of other gamers.”

Update: More have been added now. There are packs for Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank and Resistance there as well.
Another day, another leak. Here’s some box-art for the European Platinum range for PS3, showing Heavenly Sword and Motorstorm cases. They’re unconfirmed, obviously, so we’ll check this morning. We knew the cut-price range was coming, but we’re still in the dark as to when. We’ll drop Sony a line this morning.

SCEE has given a clear indication that a budget range will be released in Europe for PS3. The company fell short of confirming any solid details but used the consistently used “Platinum” title when describing the range.
“We have introduced a Platinum range of best selling titles for all of our platforms to date, and it is likely that we will do so in the future for PS3,” a spokesperson told VG247. “However, no decisions have yet been made on timing or line-up.”
The comment came after it emerged over night that Sony Japan is to release a budget brand for PS3, to launch in March 19 with Resistance, FolksSoul, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Gundam: Target in Sight, and Ridge Racer 7.
Sounds encouraging. Hopefully we won’t have too long to wait.
