"Unless you are buying/bought all the games that came out, I don't see how you can't get much out of the game rentals."
8-9 times out of 10 the rentals will be something that I already have or something I have no interest in at all. Last month Plus finally came to Vita and I had every single on of those titles except for Mutant Blobs.
"Also, when I had a 360, Silver members were always getting crapped on. Also, I just took a shot in the dark with the number of members. I also doubt that Xbox offers as many, and as deep of discounts, as Sony does. Even if they do hit a deep discount, is it even for anything that anyone would want? They sure don't do it as frequently as Sony does (monthly). "
There are sales for non-Gold members pretty regularly. Just in the last two months we had the November sale, Black Friday sale, Cyber Monday sale, an Ubisoft sale, a Rockstar sale and the current two-week holiday sale. I watch sales on both networks very closely and 50-75% off is the norm on both. As to whether or not anyone would want those games, that's subjective. Over the last two months i have picked up Fez, Mark of the Ninja, Dust: An Elysian Tail. Trials Evolution, Rayman Origins, Guradian Heroes, Jet Set Radio and the first two Assassin's Creed games (among many others.) There are also a lot I didn't buy like the CoD Collections, Hell Yeah!, etc.
I do think that both networks have lots of room for improvement though.
