GOTY now a Platinum Hits? Pics inside.

I had a $25 Target Gift Card left over from Christmas and I went online at Target.com to see what they had...to my luck, Fallout 3: Game of the Year edition for just 20 bucks! It had one of those "slashed prices" from "$59.99" to "$19.99"...so I was like "Hell yeah I'm picking this up"...and it arrived today.

I didn't expect to see this however...when I first saw the dark grey casing I was like "Oh no...they sent me the wrong version...", I pulled it out anyways...and I had a "?" pop over my head. Sure enough it was "Fallout 3: Game of the Year"...but it was a Platinum Hits? To my knowledge whenever something hits "Platinum Hits", "Greatest Hits", "Nintendo Selects" (or whatever it's called)...the price is always $19.99 no matter what store it's at. Hell the regular Fallout 3 is Platinum Hits and currently sits at $19.99.

Little over a month ago I saw it at Walmart, GOTY...still over $30. But now I'm looking at this...does this mean everyone can pick up GOTY for just $19.99? Well, here's the pics of this thing:



As you can see at the top it has the Platinum Hits thing on the corner and has the official Platinum Hits seal next to the guy's helmet.



The binding is a hideous white label...something I'd expect to see on a Display Case at Gamestop or Blockbuster. The back however is definitely the same as the regular GOTY with the cardboard cover.



Both discs are definitely included, I'm installing the DLC one now to my old Xbox and I'll copy the DLC onto a flashdrive so I can bring it over to my 4GB slim. The instruction booklet isn't even that...it's as if you have two covers and that's it. I'm not sure if the regular GOTY is like this as well.

Anyways...this is good news, I think! This might mean with the soon to be released Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition that GOTY Fallout 3 will be dropping to $19.99 for everyone!
