    Why would you get rid of the xbox? It's a fantastic machine. I'm told. ;-)

    PS+ is the best gaming service in the history of gaming services.

    Edit: please keep it mind it only became so a few months ago. It was quite lacklustre before then. From my own experience, after I'd subscribed for 3 months, when the time to renew arrived, I was happy I was buying a whole years' worth of subscription for so little (!!!) money. It's really ridiculously good value right now.

    Had our first little one this year and as much as I do still get a bit of time to indulge in a bit of gaming the idea of playing multiplayer games just doesn't work (and tbh I feel competitive MP has been getting stale ever since interest in Left 4 Dead starting to wane).

    So, having looked at the release schedule for 360 exclusives nothing interests me really. I've missed a lot of ps3 exclusives having not had a ps3 since uncharted 1. Also there is some good looking games coming out soon for the ps3.

    And then paying 60 per year for live and getting bugger all other than the ability to play online, OR ps+ which rewards me with full games each month.

    Time for a change me thinks.

    By all means, go ahead. :-) It's always a refreshing feeling to get a new piece of kit.

    Out of curiosity, will you be getting the slim, or the new-slim? The reactions to the latter have been very negative, but personally, I find it pretty attractive. Not a "premium" item in any way, but it has the "PS2 slim" type of simplicity that appeals to me, for some reason.

    I doubt il plump the extra dough for the new slim. Found a deal for a 160gb new with FIFA 13 for 180.

    Same deal for the new slim is 250.

    Depends how much I get for the Xbox I suppose...I've got to be honest I haven't really read up on the new hardware.

    Question about the cloud saving. Do you have to save locally then upload and download each time you want to play or down you save and load straight from the cloud?

    Tempted for Borderlandsing at friends house.

    @King_Edward I'm fairly sure you have to upload and download each time unfortunately, that's what my mate had to do when I was trying to help him with Deus Ex. It wouldn't be so bad but, as far as i'm aware, there's no way to tell it to upload right now, you have to just wait for it to do it itself.

    I seem to recall you can set the time the ps3 does all it's syncing stuff so couldn't you just set it for now and then it would od it?

    Oh yeah, I guess you could do that but I believe you have to have the console switched off for that and then I think it does it at anytime in that two hour slot, obviously wont always be a problem but might for some, some time. An 'upload now' option in the cloud save folder would be nice if unessential.

    Didn't want to start a new thread, but just wondered if there was any word on what the instant game collection refresh would be for November on PS Plus?

    We got Red Dead Redemption and a few others in October, but haven't heard anything about November yet. Any news?

    Have they clarified whether the PS Vita stuff is going to take away from the PS3 stuff or just add to it?

    I think they said just add to it, although I may have misinterpreted their phrasing of the statement.

    I also agree that Escape Plan seems a very likely PS+ game. As for a full retail Vita game, Unit 13 seems likely since they've already had it on half price sale before.

    No Vita Plus announcements today so it's a PS3 title to start off. Normally the update is within a few days of the update day, which for November is 7th November. I'd expect Vita plus to start off a bit low-key and will probably end up being Little Deviants :p

    Yep - wouldn't be surprised if it's Little Deviants and Escape Plan.

    Not played LD. I wouldn't pay for it, but may spend some time downloading it - anyone here already got it?

    Escape Plan is actually OK - they've heavily patched the controls to make them more responsive and the last patch gave you the option to use the face buttons, instead of just thr touch screen/rear touch pad.

    Some freebie PSP/PSOne games would be great too!

    In a similar position to privatefloyd - baby arrived this year so gaming time is limited & I'm going to let my xbox live lapse.

    Not sure whether to get ps+ or put the money towards a vita. Will the plus membership cover both or has anything been announced yet?

    I've had my 360 for a while, but I'm now getting tempted to get a PS3 as well for my bedroom (360 lives in the main room so usually TV is in use by housemates and I can't play it). PS+ is strongly pushing me towards getting one, I feel like every month that goes by I'm missing out on more stuff!

    I pay 26 for Xbox Live, how are you paying 60?
    And it does have a few perks - if you have friends/family who have Sky who are willing to provide their login details you can get Sky channels for free on your 360 (I get all the Sports and Movie channels and don't pay a penny).

    I saw they have a psn Halloween specials at the moment. I saw dead rising 2: off the record on sale. Is it a stand alone game or do I need dead rising too as well?

    Just went to get some Dead Rising 2: off the record for 5.50 like it was last week but they've put it up to 7.69! What the?
    Was the first price a mistake?

    Not going to bother with it now, it just hit my sweet spot but I guess no monies for them now :(

    Pfft, it's not like I need another 'so-so' game anyway. Probably did me a favour tbh.
