As a recently converted PS3 owner, I am not regretting my decision to move away from Xbox one bit...just had to buy a 500gb HDD as I had already filled up my 80gb one with PSPlus goodness!

Unfortunately I have all of those!!! :(

Although, I only have the PS3 version of Lego LOTR. Is this Vita version significantly different or is it a straight port?

Playstation Plus really is fantastic value for money. It presents such a good turn around on Sony's part - they really are looking after the fans now in the last days of the PS3, especially compared to how they screwed them over when the PS3 was first launched!

The Vita version is the same as the 3DS game. It's not open world as such, but its one of the better handheld Lego games and far superior to Lego Batman 2.

I thought the vita version was terrible, the audio is heavily compressed and sounds like its coming down a dodgy phone line. Also the controls are very sloppy and falling off ledges and fumbling with interactive objects is the norm. I had to go read the reviews for confirmation I wasn't going insane.

Tell me about it!

I was going to get COD: MW3 a couple of years ago, but didn't ever get chance because of PS+. Then I was going to get XCOM, but before I got round to it, I'd been given it. I was going to buy Bioshock: Infinite this morning, but after seeing the list I didn't think I'd get time to finish it before all those others arrive in 6 days time. I've spent most of my holidays finishing off PS+ games! I've just caught up, as I'm not liking NFS: Most Wanted very much. I may just play that a bit until those new ones turn up.

I have the big hitters for next month, but I will still renew once my free trial runs out. At £12 for 3 months I am already up on the deal for this quarter by getting NFS Most Wanted this month. I could also trade on the 5 or 6 games I have on disc that were PS+ and get most of this years subscription back!
