PlayStation Hits Collection – Ultimate Guide To How It Works

You may have already heard of the PlayStation Hits Collection but aren’t too sure what it is. I’ve been fortunate enough to play a lot of the games in this collection so I’ll be able to share with you what I know on this subject.

PlayStation Hits games are a selection of PlayStation 4 titles that are considered the best games on PS4 as decided by PlayStation. These games are available to buy at a reduced price. They also feature a red banner across the top of the box art to denote they are PlayStation Hits titles.

Now that we know what PlayStation Hits games are, let’s look at where this idea came from, how much these games cost, and what games are included in this collection.

What Is The PlayStation Hits Collection?

Let’s now take a closer look at PlayStation Hits to understand when it first started and how it has evolved over time.

PlayStation Hits is the current iteration of the Greatest Hits series of games.

Greatest Hits was first introduced in 1997 for PlayStation 1 games. Back then, games could become Greatest Hits games if they were released for at least 1 year and sold 150,000 copies.

These games were reprinted with altered packaging and sold at a reduced price.

This program was later introduced for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 3 generations.

As this idea progressed, the criteria for meeting Greatest Hits status changed.

For example, for PlayStation 3 games, the game must have sold 500,000 copies and be released for 10 months to meet Greatest Hits status.

In 2018, the PlayStation 4 iteration of Greatest Hits was announced as we know it today.

It was rebranded as PlayStation Hits and featured a red-colored banner across the top of the box art.

As expected, the games in this collection were available to buy at a reduced price. This was also reflected in the PlayStation store.

The initial set of PS4 PlayStation Hits games in the US comprised of 15 games.

Over time, more games have been added to increase the number of titles in the collection.


How Much Do PlayStation Hits Games Cost?
