Just more reason to own compilations of some of the best franchises out there.

You may know that the Ratchet & Clank Collection launches on August 28. But what you probably didn't know is that two more totally excellent Collections are going to hit store shelves that very same day…

As revealed at the PlayStation Blog , Sony will release a new series called the PlayStation Collections, which begins with the aforementioned Ratchet & Clank , God of War and inFamous . Here's the R&C confirmation , and here's what will be included in the other two Collections:

God of War Saga

inFAMOUS Collection

Remember, the inFamous games don't require a high-def upgrade; they already were in HD when they originally released (both games were for the PS3). On the other hand, the first two GoW titles are older; they hit on the PS2 during the pre-HD days. Anyway, for only $29.99, these are fantastic collections. Also, they say "select titles from the Collections" will be available individually (without the extras) on the PlayStation Store.
