Platinum!

Roughly one year after the launch of the Xbox 360, Microsoft has announced the creation of a platinum line of videogames that will clock in at a healthy, but certainly reduced, $29.99 pricetag.

The first batch of platinum games includes Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo: Elements of Power, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and Project Gotham Racing 3.

Microsoft plans regular expansions for the platinum lineup, which definitely spells good news for the cheapass game fans among us.
