  1. Thats the problem with these games – too expensive (like everything else on FOXTEL) and not good. They dont represent value for money. When I used to work for FOXTEL the gamesworld portal (Arcade and Mindgames) used to form part of the Employee Package and I used to only play the mind trivia (when I’d remember to do it) – and I can tell you the amount of subscribers I spoke to that had the games portal would total about 20 over my year and a half (I saw more subscribed to Adults Only)

  2. I love my FOXTEL with all my heart : )
    But they are flogging a dead horse with this..they have had these free weekends a few times now..in this day and age of X-Box’s, Playstations and all other manner of computer games, who seriously wants to sit around infront of the telly and play this crap..they look like bad 1980s computer games
