The UK-Exclusive 'Only On Playstation' Range Is Classy AF

Eversince the original Playstation, there's come a point in each console's lifecycle where Sony re-releases a bunch of great games as what was originally called the Playstation Platinum range: basically the big-hitters of the last few years, delivered at a budget price.

It's always been a great idea and is how I discovered plenty of great titles I'd have otherwise missed. The boxes though... yeah, the boxes always looked worse than the original releases, to me at least, and it also seemed they got worse over the generations. Let's follow some Tekken installments from PS1 to PS3 in the Platinum range...

Eesh! The price might have been right, but the design... I'd buy these things but kind of semi-resent those covers.

Well, those days are gone. The 'Only On Playstation' range has launched in the UK today and just look at these things: gorgeous would be an understatement.

Editor's Note: These cases appear to be UK-exclusives, so we can only drool over them for now. They're real pretty, though!

Have a look at some of the designs, and you can see the whole range here.

The most beautiful of all is Bloodborne, though I would say that. I've already got two copies of the game (don't ask) and now it looks like I'm going to hand over $30 for essentially a pretty sleeve. Oh well, no-one ever said this hobby was cheap.

The full line-up of games follows.

Spider-Man

The Last of Us Remastered

Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition

Shadow of the Colossus

    While the art is good. They are just essentially cardboard covers for the original game cases.

    I'd much rather they re-do the cover inserts. Because cardboard covers like this tend to deteriorate quickly unless removed from the case.

    At least the PS2 covers were a classy silver, and not the garish yellow of Japan's equivalent Playstation The Best range.

    Reminds me of the reversible covers Sony did for some PS3 games back in the day. Standard box art on the outside, but pull out the insert and turn it around and there was some really nice alternate artwork on the other side. There should be more of this.

      I love reversible covers and am overjoyed to find them in unexpected games (ala Fallout 76).

      I also do like how you can print out original are that in most cases far eclipses the chosen marketing covers.

        At the very least I wish all games had reversible covers with the same art on the other side, minus the giant age rating label.

          Throwing on top of that buying pre-owned games is a nightmare of carefully controlled peeling movements

    Preeeeetteeeey.

    I want posters of all these. Well. Almost all. I DGAF about Ratchet & Clank.

    Sony sure knows its audiences.

    If you look on social media there a plenty of Playstation collectors out there buying up all the consoles, controllers and every version of every game.

    I love my playstation consoles but its getting ridiculous now
