Could Microsoft be any more of a joke right now?

If i said "Im going to give away a free game every month such as halo 3 and battlefield 3" most people would assume that they would be in the first or second month, not to mention how inferior the titles are when compared to PS+ in both the game itself and the real world value.

Once again MS fails to get its message across and they should really be up for nomination at this years comedy awards.

If it's anything like it has been so far, don't bother.

MS, you have timed exclusivity on Skyrim (although nothing else's being made for that) and CoD so why don't you give away some exclusive Xbox-only content such as 50% off the upcoming CoD DLC, or some free Halo 4 DLC or hell, Halo 4.

Also, in your sale you're giving away BL2 for cheap, if you gave that away then I'm sure there would be much interest.

MS didn't have timed exclusivity on Skyrim. All the DLC came out on the PC at the same time as Xbox 360.

It was technical problems with the way Skyrim was programmed in relation to the PS3 architecture that caused the huge delays for the Sony console to get the DLC.
I believe it stemmed from the different ways the two consoles managed RAM.

The free games are pretty meh. The might save me £3-6 if they are even worth downloading.

Having recently acquired both a PSV and PS+, I have not needed to buy a retail game for a month or so. I've had access to 10 games I have never played, all of them a great bargain to behold for £40.

Having access to Fable 3 and Defense Grid is paltry compared. MS needs to catch up.

Why did we assume that Assassins Creed II and Halo 3 would be the first give-aways? Gee I Don't know Larry Hyrb maybe because they were announced as the first give-aways and then you give us Defense Grid. You need to head over to Zynga with Mattrick there buddy.
