Any strong feelings on whether the PS3 or 360 version of Rayman is better?

Just pick the system with the controller that you prefer.

^Yep. I can't imagine that there would be much difference between the two, graphically speaking. But the game requires some extremely precise control, so I'd base my decision on which system's controller you're better with.

People on CAG are saying only the 360 version has 5.1 for whatever reason.

But yeah, if you are the kinda person that will go for all the challenges and collectables then you need a controller you are most comfortable wih, you'll need that advantage on the harder levels.

Finally caved on this at TRU.com after watching the video of gameplay and I was tired of waiting for Amazon to pricematch the wii version.
Hope this is fun. Sure looks like it. Games like Donkey Kong Country , mario and The Lego games are my favorite types of games so this looks right up my alley.

My Rayman Origins came today in the mail -- as fast as if I'd used Amazon Prime.

I picked up Final Fantasy IV Complete PSP from the same deal also for 9.99, and it's being shipped free. Two week delay, but I'm not in a hurry.

I didn't care for the game initially but it's grown on me pretty substantially, very fun old school platformer. I got it when it hit $19.99 the first time, great purchase.

Great deals this month on Batman ACC, RAGE, Mass Effect 2 and Bulletstorm

Too bad I already own all those games.

How much is it $5 or $10 for the single issue? I know its $15 for a year of it along with the other bonuses.


However, if there is a Batman AC $20 coupon, a $15 coupon for ME 2 and a $10 or $15 for Rage? It should be worth it either way.
