Trophy Whores 366 – Rockstar’s Money Magnets

Red Dead Redemption.  Grand Theft Auto.  Whether we’re talking RDR 2 or GTA 6, Rockstar Games, and parent company Take Two Interactive, stand to make a lot of money off of its workhorse series.  During its first week of sales, Red Dead Redemption 2 went Tyrannosaurus Rex on entertainment sales records and forcibly dislodged the crown of King of Video Games.  In the first week of sales.  We’ll have to see if Red Dead 2 can keep the momentum going — or if it taps out after the second plate at a Chinese buffet.

Playstation Classic Full Lineup Announced – Coming December 3rd

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88ACUOvfDEw

Sony has finally unveiled the list of 20 games included on the Playstation Classic on the Playstation Blog. While we knew that Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII and Jumping Flash were coming, the remaining 17 games were kept behind closed doors for quite a while, creating speculation throughout the community. Well now we know the Playstation Classic is coming on December 3rd for $99.99 and appears to leave something to be desired.

See the full list below

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

20 games is not enough games for any classic system, but this list is leaving out many classics that people were hoping would be included. Two major mascots of the original Playstation, Crash Bandicoot & Lara Croft are oddly missing (although those remasters are out there now & Lara has moved on in a grand way). What do you think of the list? Is this a collection worth $100?
