Thursday Chat: June 5


Now that Xbox LIVE Gold has taken the PlayStation Plus route, users can now get two titles a month, meaning that if you have a Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita and PS4 you could potentially get over 10 free games a month all in.


So what do you think of this system? Have you signed up to Xbox LIVE Gold, PlayStation Plus or both? What systems do you own? Obviously the more you own, the more you'll benefit. Also, are you happy with the quality of games on offer?

Let's Chat!

I think the games on offer are fairly decent, could have been better with games like need for speed or ryse, but could have been worse with the fighter within :p can never complain about free games

I'm PS+ and I'm toying with Xbox Gold as I've just picked up PVZ for the 360. However, I think I'll wait until I run out of scratchable free Gold membership cards before I take the plunge because at the moment, I'm only Gold when I want to be. In other news, the Wii U just turned up and shall be booted up tonight for a localised Mario Kart Party!

Free is always good, not sure it's enough of an incentive to make me pay to play online though, the games on 360 weren't enough that's for sure. I'll have to see how both services shape up on current gen consoles, neither are particularly enticing so far, like the consoles themselves, it may be a contributory factor in which console I go for.

Free games is a nice incentive for having to pay to play online there arent many games I play online so the £40 is a bit expensive but free games does sweeten the deal now.

PS Plus can be hit and miss. Sometimes you get good games, other times you get complete trash. Apart from Resogun I haven't downloaded any games through PS Plus for PS4. Should get better games for PS4 through Plus once the games library gets bigger. I've had most of my PS Vita games through Plus though. So it's definitely been worth it for that.

Outlast is Trash? Mercenary Kings is Trash? That is ...... I'm speechless. Anyhoo you owe it to yourself to give Trine 2 a download

I'm not saying those games are trash. I should have been more clear, the games so far for PS4 haven't been great games or games I've been interested in. But I can remember before PS4 came along when you'd get PS3 games that were trash.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
Calling them Trash is a bit harsh don't you think? You are getting the game for free so even if it is out of your comfort zone give it a download and you might be surprised
Spear 25's avatar

Perhaps it was a bit harsh. I can't remember the exact games every month, but each time they announce the games for PS4 through Plus I'm just a bit disappointed. I understand I'm expecting too much, but in a years time hopefully we might start seeing great games on Plus. By then the PS4 games library should be quite extensive.

You already do have great games on PS+. You mean AAA games

Shopto do seem to sell some random things every now and then reckon they must buy stock clearance stuff from bust businesses every now and then.

Like others have said, free is always good, even if you try the games and don't like them, all you've lost is the time it took to download them. My personal 2 favourite PS+ titles are Resogun and Warframe, I've spent more time on these 2 games than any other PS4 title I've paid for so more than happy. From what I've played so far of Halo and Max I think Microsoft are off to a decent start so it will be interesting to see what they offer in future. To be honest though, even without the free games I'm still more than happy to pay for my yearly sub just to be able to party up with friends and family, MP/co-op and if you shop about there's some great deals, the 2 years I have stacked up on Xbox cost me just under £55, more than happy and I got a 1 year PS+ free with my PS4 :)

That's cheating! You can't say you will be buying something for Shopto if you win! Your name isn't Tony (J/K)

Mario Kart is brilliant. A tad annoyed at using the big touch screen pad to play but no doubt there will be a way to change that that I've not found yet. My friends are currently having fun creating the S/O in the Mii Universe

Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
What do you mean using the Gamepad to play exactly? I don't see how it is annoying in the slightest
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 2 years ago
It's just a tad too large for my hands and my thumb begins to ache after a few races
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 2 years ago
That is just normal with the Gamepad until you get used to it. Put me off playing the Wii U for the longest time

I don't really look at the map. Only times I do are when I go offroad or when I finish so I can see how far ahead I am of everyone

Don't know why the gamepad gets so much hate, saw some stupid woman on this crappy show playing Mario Kart on it the other day and was complaining about it, plus she was claiming to be a Mario kart expert, but was all over the place and called the green shells bullets. Gaming TV is so shit.

The Gamepad is a bit ... weird to use for your first time but it doesn't take that long to get use to it
Kaysar's avatar

Mayhaps I just need to get used to it, but it is the largest controller I've ever used and my dainty little hand has suffered a bit tonight. Still, booted up the gamecube for some classic Mario Party. The computer is trounching us

I have been going through the characters to unlock the stamps for each character. I normally end up going Luigi anyway but that probably because I was always player 2 in the normal Mario games.

Wonderful 101, best version of Rayman Legends, arguable the best version of Human Revolution, best version of Blacklist (Imo), Wind Waker, ZombiU, Monster HunterU, Wii Games & the Virtual Console

You also have lego city. I saw that earlier Nox wonder if its cap com that have decided that or if it was Phil Spencer as he has said he is planning on supporting the PC side of things. Either way more people get to play it which is good.
