Our Take
PlayStation Plus continues to be a fantastic value, and this month's Instant Collection offerings are fantastic. The Rayman discounts are equally impressive (though it's odd that the Vita version of Origins is still more expensive than the PS3 edition). All of that is to say that you should play Rayman Origins however you can manage it. It's that good.
