Rumor: Amazon France Reveals “Essential Collection” Status For Select PS3 Titles

July 3, 2012 Written by Nick Michetti

Amazon France may have revealed a new branding status for PS3 software, the “Essential Collection.”

Examiner.com reports that, according to Amazon France listings, a number of existing PS3 titles will be re-released under the branding of “Essential Collection.” Quite a few high profile games have qualified for the branding, including the likes of inFAMOUS, Heavy Rain, and more. No prices are available for any of the games, but the report does note that Sony recently dropped the price of “PSP Essentials” titles to £9.99, so this may or may not be a discounted line of games similar to “Greatest Hits” status.

Check out the full list below:

  • DanceStar Party
  • EyePet & Friends
  • God of War III
  • Heavenly Sword
  • Heavy Rain
  • inFAMOUS
  • MAG
  • Medieval Moves
  • MotorStorm
  • Move Fitness
  • Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
  • Resistance: Fall of Man
  • Resistance 2
  • Start the Party!
  • The Fight: Lights Out

Readers should note that if this “Essential Collection” branding exists, it might only be for French or European regions or may even be a special promotion for those regions.
