GTA IV, Left 4 Dead, Street Fighter IV Become 'Platinum Hits'

Microsoft has decided that a fresh batch of Xbox 360 titles have earned the necessary amount of greatness to become "Platinum Hits," garnering them a cheaper asking price and not so horrible, slightly modified box art.

The new Xbox 360 Platinum Hits inductees are Grand Theft Auto IV, Street Fighter IV, Left 4 Dead, Saints Row 2 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Two of those titles have sequels due out rather soon, so best to get them before they become antiquated by Left 4 Dead 2 and Super Street Fighter IV.

Price in U.S. dollars starts "as low as $19.99," price points that some of these titles have been flirting with for some time now. But according to the official release, some retailers are offering a buy two, get one free deal on the Xbox 360 budget line of games, passing the savings on to you!
