    How does Quantum Conundrum stack up against Portal from the Orange Box, difficulty wise?
    Specifically the complete under X time and use only X amount of shifts.

    I know there are videos but that guy looks really good at the game.

    As usual, a whole heap of moaning...

    These are ALL good-or-great games, at significant discounts... I have all but 'From Dust', 'Catan, and 'Quantum Conundrum' already; and have had to delete yet more from my hard drive to make room :/

    So many games, so little time...

    Still have to pay for petrol and road tax for said car in order to get to work for FREE.

    Xbox GOLD still gets paid just like PS+ gets paid, yet one gives you these games for free while the other gives you a discount.

    Anyway Mass Effect 3 DLC please :)

    Looks like MS doing as much as it can to get people to fill out their punch cards this month. TONS of discounts on popular titles that I could see many having been on the fence about.

    One also let's you keep your games even after it expires, while the other doesn't.

    One also lets you play games online while the other one lets you do that for free (without the subscription). All those free games you get on PS+ expire when you don't resubscribe too, so if say you were interested in signing up to that service for those games, you'll only get a month to keep them if you don't opt to get the 12 month service.

    It is a good service, but you just have to keep resubscribing in order to keep the stuff you get free. And I think you can only have something like up to 14 free games at a time on your console?

    Also, getting to work FREE--with purchase of a car.. doesn't make sense, you still have to pay for fuel and insurance when you have a car, so you aren't technically getting there for free.

    I'm glad someone pointed out that PS+ titles are not exactly free. If you don't resubscribe to a service that basically sells itself on the promise of free games, you lose said free games. PS+ is NOT the fantastic, amazing, Xbox LIVE beater that everybody assumes it is.

    Catan is a dope board game. It just presents so many wonderful ways to be an asshole to the other players.

    The XBLA game? Ehhhhhh....

    From Dust is a wonderful game, and a steal for 480 points. And if everybody gets it, we can go and make this forum insane...

    Been contemplating From Dust ever since it was first released and this sale just sealed the deal. Quantum Conundrum, too.

    Yeah but if you were getting a constant stream of free games every month why on earth would you stop paying the subs?? On top of that once I've played a game I get shut of it .... no point virtually hoarding something that I'll never play again, physical copy or not

    You can call it a rental service if you like but considering loads of Xbox gamers rent a lot of what they play anyway then what's the difference? Do you get that emotional about not being able to play a game any more once you've returned the game back to Blockbusters / Gamefly / Lovefilm / wherever?

    I don't own a PS3 but even I can see that it's FAR better value for money than XBL

    The regular game is not hard. The Challenges are pretty tough. There's way more mechanics than just shooting blue and orange portals.

    I might bite at Catan.. I would go for Kinect Party, but that 6 player achievement sounds annoying.
