A peculiar bundle of Beyond Good & Evil HD, Outland, and From Dust is going to be offered on XBLA soon by Ubisoft.
Called the Xbox LIVE Hits Collection, the anthology was listed recently by Amazon UK with a release date of September 22nd. As of now, we have no confirmation on whether or not this bundle will be coming to North America. We also have no idea whether or not it will be coming to the PS3. The bundle was marked with a £17.99 price tag, which roughly corresponds to a US price of approximately 23 dollars which is well under the price of purchasing each game separately, though not particularly worth it if you have already purchased one or two of these titles.
All of these games were massive downloadable hits for Ubisoft. Beyond Good & Evil was one of the best games of last generation and was similarly well received in this generation. Outland takes Ikaruga’s interesting two-color shield mechanic and applies it to platforming. Finally, From Dust is an interesting god box game that puts the power of the elements at your control.
If you haven’t played any of these games, then you should seriously look into getting the bundle, when and if it comes out on your console in your territory.
