So there we have it folks, both the PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold announcements for this upcoming month. Personally, for the first time in many months I’m excited for the PlayStation Plus offerings. Just Cause 3 alone has me excited and makes me feel like I’m getting value from my PlayStation subscription. That said, Xbox’s less stellar lineup has the quantity as all four games I’m considering downloading, especially the Bayonetta and Trials games.

Which lineup do you think is best? Let us know in the comments below.
