Midlife Gamer Prediction League – December 2014

December 16th, 2014 by

Prediction League 200-200That’s it. The end of an era; ok maybe it’s not as quite as dramatic as that but it is December and that means its the very last edition of the Prediction League. A winner has been crowned in the Prediction League and even though he stopped actually guessing for a few months to give people a chance to catch up Si has come out on top with CraigieH in second whilst Adamski and Digital Pariah come in joint third. More importantly than who comes out on top in the Prediction league though is, and a question we will answer shortly, how much money would you have saved subscribing to the three services in 2014? First though let’s take a look at the December titles.

Microsoft supply us with Volgaar the Viking for the second month in a row but add a big hitter in Team 17′s Worms Battleground for the Xbox One whilst the 360 gets The Raven and SSX. The 360 offerings are good titles and I remember the community really jumping on SSX when it was originally released. The Games with Gold for the Xbox One really doesn’t seem to follow any strict pattern with some months subscribers getting one new game, other months two new games and the occasional months getting one new game as well as extra time to download one of the previous months titles. Hopefully in 2015 we will see a pattern form.

Xbox One – Worms Battleground

Xbox 360 – The Raven & SSX

As we all know Sony announced the next two months of Plus titles for the PlayStation 4 but the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita titles were kept firmly under wraps until the beginning of the month. To go along with the announced Injustice and Secret Ponchos we are also receiving Deadly Premonition and the Hitman HD Trilogy for the PlayStation 3 as well as Final Horizon for the Vita alongside the crossbuy for all formats title Titan Attacks.

PlayStation 4 – Injustice: Gods Among Us, Secret Ponchos & Titan Attacks
PlayStation 3 -  Deadly Premonition: Directors Cut, Hitman HD Trilogy & Titan Attacks
PlayStation Vita – Final Horizon & Titan Attacks

Once again included this month (but not part of the scoring for the prediction league) is the value you gain through subscribing to EA Access, the Xbox One exclusive subscription based service from EA. EA have announced that the one of the most realistic fighting games of the new generation UFC is coming to The Vault on December 18th.

So what savings would you have made in 2014. Regardless of the whole “it’s gone when you cancel” argument, in monetary terms PlayStation Plus gives you the most bang for your buck offering a whopping total of £1081.23 worth of games over the last twelve months. Coming in second is Microsofts Games with Gold giving you £492.17 worth of titles across their two systems. However both will need to keep an eye on the newcomer to the market EA Access which, although it has only been available since August (two thirds less time than its competitors), it has given away an amazing £289.93 worth of games.

If you take into consideration the average subscription costs for the services:

PlayStation Plus – £39.99 for 12 months

Games with Gold – £34.99 for 12 months

EA Access – £19.99 for 12 months

This means that overall we saved £1768.36 over the last 12 months which is good news whichever way you look at it
