    Can whoever has contact with Marco Cocomello please make him read the comments in this thread:
    http://mygaming.co.za/forum/showthre...lue-comparison

    I will explain it in layman's terms:
    1. I pay R50 for something to the value of R746.00. Metacritic: 75.75%
    2. I pay R149.00 for something to the value of R1668.00. Metacritic: 75.33%
    3. I pay R190.00 for something to the value of R1354.00. Metacritic: 78.50%
    4. I pay R5000.00 for something to the value of R5500.00. Metacritic: 88.00%

    According to the articles the last option would be the best option because you get the largest value in return. But that's silly. It's illogical. And I please need someone to explain this to the writer because people are reading this here at MyGaming.

    Value per rand calculation:
    Value/Cost = Value per rand.

    So
    1. R14.92
    2. R11.19
    3. R7.12
    4. R1.10

    So in actual fact the best value this month again is the XBox Live Gold free games.

    Here is a summary of all three offerings this month and how they compare. It seems that Xbox Live Gold members are getting the short end of the stick this month as the line-up, when looking at it from a value point of view, is lacking real value for money.
    No please, that's not how it works. Please.

    Surely that R5000 should be R500

    Also, good summary. I haven't really thought about it until now.

    For the sake of the argument it must be R5000 to show that 4 doesn't win even though you get a bigger monetary value at the end, it doesn't mean that it's the best value for money.

    Hehe no worries. At least you read it. The writer of the article doesn't bother to read the comments on his articles.

    The forum? Peh, ain't nobody got time for that.

    Post it in the Disqus comments section on the article page... It's a lot more public, but could damage the reputation of MyG somewhat if the general public also see the flaw in the writer's logic.

    But I agree 100% with you that XBOX is by far the better value.

    I must really change my Disqus picture. It somehow got hold of a photo when I linked an account to it and now I rarely post with it since it's got this ugly face linked to it.
