Finally some decent classic box art

It doesn’t matter what you call them, platinum titles, budget titles, classic titles… either way they have always looked absolutely awful with the current PS3 versions being beaten to death with the ugly stick.

However it looks like the graphic designers have finally realised that people don’t want to buy ugly boxes really and maybe if you make the box look good more people will buy it.

Isn’t that the entire principal of box art in the first place?

The above box art was seen in a Target store in Upstate New York and as of the time of writing Microsoft hasn’t officially announced anything about this new box art yet.

I personally hope it’s not a one off and I absolutely love their tag line “Greatness Is Earned”

  • That is rather nice.

    I have no idea why the platinum/greatest hits range has always had to look so God awful.

  • easy

    sheesh, people can moan about almost anything!
    its box art for crying out loud, the game itself works exactly the same as the one in the original box art.

    my mates don’t come around and say ‘i’m not playing that game ’cause the box art is soooo damn ugly’

    grrr friday rant

    I’m a designer and I can tell you that 99.999% of the time, fugly artwork is a result of ridiculous requests from the clients that sign it off :sad:. I’ll bet some corporate from SONY decided it was a great idea to use yellow :sick:

    That being said – great job on the X360 ‘platinum’
