Mafia II Platinum Hits Edition Confirmed. Complete With DLC
Written Wednesday, March 30, 2011 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

2K Games has announced that Mafia II Platinum Hits Edition is coming to - or indeed already available for - Xbox 360, bundled with all three DLC chapters, including previously PS3-only add-on The Betrayal of Jimmy, available for the first time on 360.

In addition to The Betrayal of Jimmy, there's the equally action-packed Jimmy's Vendetta and Joe's Adventures add-ons in the bundle, which is a snip at its recommended retail price of $29.99 at selected retailers, where it's now available.

The Mafia II Platinum Hits Edition will include:

  • The full edition of the gripping crime-drama, Mafia II, where Vito and his buddy, Joe, are making a name for themselves on the streets of Empire Bay, working their way up the Mafia family ladder with crimes of larger reward, status and consequence.
  • The Betrayal of Jimmy -  Players take on Empire Bay through an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, a mercenary. Jimmy is the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. The Betrayal of Jimmy features dozens of intense arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay.
  • Jimmy’s Vendetta - Once the mob’s most effective ally, Jimmy is now its greatest enemy. Fueled by rage, Jimmy takes on Italian and Irish mobsters in a slew of unlockable city quests, including assassination and timed vehicle pursuits ending in dramatic shootouts.
  • Joe’s Adventures - Play as Joe Barbaro as he rampages through Empire Bay in the wake of Vito Scaletta’s prison sentence. Joe must uncover the traitor who betrayed Vito while overcoming the challenges of moving up the ranks in the mob.
  • Four Style Packs including Vegas, Renegade, Greaser and War Hero — each with two cars and two suits for in-game use.

Mafia II Platinum Hits Edition will be made available worldwide throughout April.

Wow, that's a crazy good price. Anyone who hasn't already picked up Mafia should get it now cause the regular game is $30 and two of those dlc packs are 800 msp each, plus the Betrayal of Jimmy used to be a PS3 exclusive so you can't even buy that on the marketplace

Does anyone know if the DLC is on the game disc, on a separate disc, or downloadable keys? I'm hoping for on the game disc just because I'm running low on HDD space, but I'm sure I can clean some things out.

Some of this must be on the disc because you can't download "The Betrayal of Jimmy" from marketplace. Would be nice if it all was disc based. I've already completed all cheevos for Mafia 2 (apart from 1000 mile drive in Jimmys Vendetta!! ). Would be great if this gave you a seperate achievement list like Batman GOTY :)

That doesn't necessarily mean the PS3 exclusive DLC is on disc. It might show up on the marketplace in the coming weeks.

Anyway, definitely picking this up now. Retail with all DLC (exclusive, pre-order, etc.) at half the price? Easy sell.

Nice. Maybe when that goes on sale, I'll pick it up. After all, more DLC means more chances to hear Nolan North talk to Nolan North. :p

Anyway yeah, still not dropping $30 on this. The demo was okay but nothing that really grabbed me and made me want to play, and I hear it can get boring at times. But a full game + all DLC bundle at a decent sale price would be awesome, so I'll keep my eye out now.

just wondering IF the Betrayal of Jimmy will have achivements...currently have 1500/1500, if so I'll have to rent this version. I bought the Collector's Edition when t came out, its too bad they just wouldn't release this other piece as DLC to max the game out at 1750.

Is it just me or does anyone else share my disgust for titles in the "platinum hits" casing. It is really ugly and I have never owned a single one on the 360 before, and never will lol.

That's not hitting on the game of course, this deal looks great for people like me that have never played the game before, but, that damn Platinum virus..

@7, I would say that the DLC is probably on download tokens, I've gotten a few games that include DLC and everytime it was download tokens. The article does say it's available in certain stores right now so I would try to see if you can find out what stores it's in and check out the box...but I would say it's probably download tokens

Great deal but the dlc's were trash, I didn't even bother to finish either of them before I traded it in after I held on to the game long enough for them to come out. Really wish they had just made the game open world. That said, I enjoyed the hell out of the main storyline and at this price I would reccomend it to anyone.

The PAL regions will also get a similar edition, only with a slightly different cover on white background. Director's Cut it's called, i think.

To those of you who were wondering, all of the DLC is on a separate disc. So you just install it off of the disc to your hard drive (just like the Fallout 3 and the newer version of the Borderlands GOTY editions). So if you've got a buddy who also wants it, you can technically both chip in $15 for it, and then each just install the content to your 360s. It works for launch copies of the game too, seeing that I just installed the DLC off the disc, and I'm continuing to play with the disc that came in my Collector's Edition (I was about half way through the story at that point and it loaded it up fine without any problems). So it isn't like the Fable 2 Platinum Hits version where your old saves are not compatible.

Hope that helps those of you who had questions about it.

Always felt like an asshole for not picking Mafia 2 up, the original was a seminal experience for me. It's funny when you see the heaps of praise that LA Noire (and don't get me wrong, it deserves most of it) gets for not being a slave to the open world formula, yet Mafia 2 got such a hard time for not being GTA, a game, like LA Noire, it never set out to be.

It's about damn time I played this.

I got a new copy at Gamestop 1 month ago same as "Mellow Tha Pro" and we had to drive 20 miles from where i live to get it. A week ago I saw it at the Target maybe 4 miles from my house :3

I don't have Xbox Live so this is my first time playing with DLC's.

Cant wait till L.A. Noire: Collector's Edition comes out with DLC's on a disc like Mafia II.

The Only thing I was sad about was you don't get the Made Man DLC. :(

Great for the price.

@62 that is one of the many reasons i dont buy from gamestop. a game is not new if it is opened. i dont care what the gamestop employee says. for someone like me who saw this at the store for 20 dollars its kinda...meh cuse i bought the game for thirty and got all the dlc that is included with this edition. the only thing im interested in is the former ps3 exclusive dlc. i wonder if its worth the 20 dollar price just so i can get everything for my game that i should have got when i first bought it. exclusive stuff sucks indeed. i see it doesnt have chievos but its still part of the games story. the case it came in felt heavy like it has more than 1 disc. is the dlc stuff on disc or a code? i would rather just download the jimmys betrayal dlc and play it off my original game disc unless i can get double achievements for the platinum version which i doubt. i do agree with the guy that was saying the platinum hits are ugly. i think the cases and discs are ugly so thats another reason i am hoping jimmys betrayal is on a code.
i hope someone can tell me wether jimmys betrayal is disc or code cuse if its disc i may not bother getting this version unless its really good content. it is actually a very good idea to wait to buy games nowadays because of things like this.

@64 It's two discs, second disc is with all dlc (Jimmmys vendetta, Betrayal of Jimmy, Joe's Adventures and some cars and clothes) but you have to install it to the hdd and play with game disc (disc 1). Don't know if you can install it and play with the original game disc, but why not. The game just checks for downloaded/installed dlc when booting.
