Tip of the Week: Share a Zune Pass
Two people, one account. Good for PCs, devices, and phones. Makes the most sense for couples.

Tip of the Week #2: Learn to play real instruments with Rock Band 3
Rock Band 3 for the Xbox 360 and PS3 can work with real guitars and keyboards, and the game includes game play modes that actually help you learn to play the instruments.

Software Pick of the Week: Saboteur (game, US only)
"The Saboteur is a brand-new take on familiar World War II gaming. The first open-world, action game set in Nazi-occupied Europe, it contains a mix of single player stealth, third-person shooter and racing gameplay in which the player assumes the role of a hero obsessed with a personal vendetta against the Nazi regime. Utilizing a wealth of items, abilities, weapons and vehicles the player turns his private, stealth war into something much broader with the game's "Will to Fight" system which graphically reflects the will of the occupied peoples in the game, which can proves the deciding factor for all.Thanks to Corey Stamm
