If you own an Xbox 360, then Capcom has a special treat in store for you. That is, provided you haven't been buying some of their more popular titles.
The company has announced that on September 8th, 2009, they will be releasing the Platinum Hits Triple Pack for $39.99. The PHTP contains Capcom hits Dead Rising, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition, and Devil May Cry 4. At what amounts to $13.33 a pop, that isn't bad at all-- especially if you haven't already purchased any of these three hits.
"Each of these games has been awarded Platinum Hits "Best Seller" status and together have sold over 3 million units in North America alone," Capcom said in a press release. "Any gamer who had the bad luck of missing these legendary titles, will now have a chance to redeem themselves for a great low price."
In case it interests you, we've presented the full press release after the cut. Read More

Since this console generation began, there's been one key difference between the online play for Microsoft and its rivals: The other guys let you play for free. Though Xbox Live is usually considered the best of the bunch (barring a bunch of squeaky-voiced teens who think racism is cool, for whatever reason), it has widely been considered an inevitability that Microsoft-- particularly if they want to woo that "casual" crowd-- will need to either drop the charges for online play, or face the consequences.
Well, it looks like they might be doing the former. Though this past weekend was a "Live Weekend" where Silver users could play online for free, at least one person has cited having been able to play since Wednesday night, two nights before the promotion began. Microsoft has already ended the distinction on PC, could the 360 be following?
Others on Microsoft's forums have cited several games working online for free, including Shadowrun, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition and Universe at War: Earth Assault. Hopefully this will bode well for the near future; things are not yet concrete, again owing to the free weekend, but we'll let you know once there's any sort of clue as to a concrete answer.
