Very cool for gold members...
With PS Plus I have about 15 full games I have downloaded but have not played yet...

Just not enough hours in the day :)

Why do you feel the need to compare?

The article is about Xbox Live. Playstation isn't mentioned anywhere in it.

Because its not the same on + the games are loaned on Live there yours, its a fundamental difference. I talk by experience I know what I say once your + membership is up you loose the privilege to play the games. So no you can't compare the services.

Same here. I prefer "in-depth" game play with 3-4 games (on either console) and can barely keep up (currently playing The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite DLC, Battleground 3 multiplayer (all maps) and Halo 4 multiplayer).

Quality, not quantity, is what matters to me.

Once a game has been exhausted, (and all Trophies or Achievements have been won) i add another game of similar potential -- GTAV is my next candidate.

I dont think I have crackdown anymore (I like many bought the game just for the Halo 3 Beta). But it was surprisingly fun and enjoyable in co-op. So Im going to add it to my download history if i ever want to play it again. I haven't played Dead Rising 2 so this will be fun. Especially with the added dlc for free :)

I might as well enjoy my last few month of xbl until I switch to the ps4.

i already have crackdown and never played dead rising of any kind so this will be a good deal for me.

Excellent games. Played Crackdown was one of my favorite games and Deadrising 2 never played it. Love to jump on Crack down again and have fun with it. Deadrising can be a great way to reintroduce me to the franchise in anticipation for Deadrising 3 on Xbox One.

i never played dead rising 2 so will play co op to prepare for dead rising 3. old games though, crackdown was a blast, makes me think crackdown 3 is around the corner!

Crackdown 1?!

Crackdown was fun for a while, but I got tired of it pretty fast. I'll take it again for free because the kids liked it. Looking forward to giving DR2 a shot since I loved the first one.

Man, I use to LOVE Crackdown. GREAT GAME! I drove the wife nuts looking for orbs; I never did find the last 3. If you've only ever played Crackdown 2, don't let that turn you off, because CD2 sucked, but this one - the original, was freaking GREAT!

Crackdown 1 is a fun game! I'll go run some co-op when I download it again.

My gold ran out two days after AC2 was available. My plan is if they offer a game that is worth it I might re-up for a month. I finished both crackdown & dead rising 2 already so ill be holding off this month.
