— Playstation Collection Tagline

The natural evolution to the massively successful HD Collection wave kick-started by the release of the God of War Collection, the Playstation Collections branding was created by Sony to push their franchises even harder. Launching near a newly rebranded and less expensive model of Playstation 3, the Playstation Collections highlight the console's strongest franchises by bundling games from the PS3, HD upscaled Playstation 2 and HD Playstation Portable games into one set, allowing for whole franchises to be purchased at significantly lower prices than their original retail or the cost of buying second hand copies of the games.

The initiative launched on August 28th, 2012 and has become the default "HD Collection" template since then.
