While most potential PS3 buyers were thrilled when Sony announced a price cut on the console last month, not all of them were sold on the PS3 just yet, because despite the value-for-money pricing of the console, most PS3 games were still priced at Rs 2,500 onwards. That has changed now. Milestone’s catalogue for September shows how Sony is aggressively re-pricing slightly older titles, with games now available at Rs 999, Rs 1,299, Rs, 1,499, Rs 1,599, and so on. Over 25 titles from Milestone’s catalogue are now priced at under Rs 1,500.

And they aren’t bad games either. Games like Folklore, F1 Championship Edition, Everybody’s Golf and others have been available at Rs 999 for a while now. Now at the Rs 1,299 price point, you have EA titles such as Mirror’s Edge, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, The Orange Box, and The Simpsons Game.
Other titles like Dead Space, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, Battlefield: Bad Company, LittleBigPlanet, Need for Speed Undercover, and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune are now available for between Rs 1,499 and Rs 1,599. It’s always been believed that most PS3 games cost Rs 2,500 onwards, but looking at the Milestone catalogue, only 22 out of the 70-plus PS3 titles are priced at Rs 2,499 and above. And judging by recent trends, prices on those should be coming down too.
Elsewhere on the September catalogue, Capcom PC titles finally make an appearance, but looking at the prices (Resident Evil 5 at Rs 1,999 and Street Fighter IV at Rs 1,799) it makes us wonder why they even bothered. There are also now three PS2 bundles (unfortunately, each includes Hanuman: Boy Warrior) and a new Pursuit Force PSP bundle on offer. A few PS2 re-releases are thrown in as well, this time from the Codemasters stable, each at Rs 499.
There’s lots more that we may have missed out, so check out the entire list here.
All the games in the Milestone catalogue are now available at their new prices at Game4U. They also offer cash on delivery and free shipping.
