PS2 Greatest Hits...Next Batch Thoughts?

First of all, I was really surprised when I saw the four Greatest Hits titles. Twisted Metal Black and Gran Turismon are a steal for 20 bucks. The other two I'm not real fond of, but I'm glad they've dropped prices. So has anyone heard about the next batch or have any ideas on what we might see for their Greatest Hits line?

I believe there are requirements for a greatest hits title. The game must be out for 6 or 8 months (i can't remember exactly) AND it has to sell at least 400,000 units.

Probably not until Tekken 4 comes out in September.

Fanatvision would, but I don't think it broke the 10,000 mark. : )

I'd like to see more third party titles get $20 price tag.

Today's Best Buy ad shows Red Faction as a Greatest Hits title starting this week.

On the back cover of the new PSM, Onimusha is shown as part of the Greatest Hits Line.

A Blockbuster in my town has been trying to sell a "pre-played" copy of Fantavision for $39.99 for a few months now. Wonder why they can't sell it? Hmmm.....

I think the greatest hits concept is great.

Of course the slower selling titles drop their price they just do not call it Greatest Hits. I think the title for those is Bargain Bin

New copies of Red Faction do have the red greatest hits banner but they still ring up as $39.99. Wouldn't at least most of the launch titles be eligible for greatest hits? I mean Tekken Tag, Timesplitters, SSX, Unreal, etc. sold tons as they were the only ones available for weeks.
