Game Pass is swinging for the fences this month.

kevnb7d ago

You can buy doom for $10 half the time, and rage... I expect more for something with a monthly fee.

XMarkstheSpot7d ago

You did get more. They started at the start of the month. These are extra titles on top of what usually gets put into GP...

Bronxs157d ago

Puts into perspective how great gamepass is. I could spend $10 and get a game like doom which I’ll beat, enjoy and never play through again. OR for that same $10 I can get the exact same experience of beating and enjoying doom. + access to over 100 other games for the month which include other great shooters like halo if shooters are my thing.

I know how I’d spend the $10....

shaggy23037d ago

Ok, go and buy Doom for $10 and enjoy it, I on the other hand will spend £8 and play:

Doom
Hitman
F1 2015
Human Fall Flat
Sea of Thieves
State of Decay 2
Dirt 4
Warhammer Vermintide 2

So on and so on etc.

See where people who like and subscribe to Games Pass are coming from?

kevnb7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

thats $10/month guys, plus you still have to play to pay online. I expect more, this shouldnt offend anyone. I feel like im talking to paid posters, most of the games on game pass have very little value.

lxeasy7d ago

@kevnb why are you salty, this doesn't even affect you since you don't own an Xbox

kevnb7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

@lxeasy Salty? I'm simply stating facts, the other posts look strangely like AstroTurfing. EAs service is actually much better than this one since it is priced so much lower.

ULTp0ltergeist7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Who the F do you think you are? LOL! This is added value no one can't pass up, even just for a month.

kevnb7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

@ULTp0ltergeist really? For $10/month this rental service doesn't provide great value since the selection is honestly mostly pretty crappy and the good games are very cheap. $120/year and only a handful of worthwhile games... EAs service has just as many good games (arguably more) and is $30 a year...

bluefox7557d ago

I guess these folks don't like actually owning games.

kevnb7d ago

@bluefox755 its not even just that, compare this to gamefly where you can actually play the games you want for just a little more a month.

denawayne7d ago

People, we should all listen to kevnb. He's trying to make a point. Can't you see we shouldn't spend the money the way we want to but the way he wants us to. Come on, get with it

kevnb7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Sorry for having an opinion denawayne... why are you even here if you can’t handle someone having a different view? It seems the paid posters are back too, you can tell because they all sound like the work for Microsoft pr.

Switch4One7d ago

You expect more?
Do you mean like 150+games including Halo 5, Gears 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Hitman, Fallout 4, Metal Gear, Rocket League, Elder Scrolls Online, Warhammer Vermintide 2, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves, PES 2018, Sunset Overdrive and The Division? Then you are in luck sir.

kevnb7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

You just listed the only games with any worth, most of them quite cheap to just buy. We are talking $5-$10 games mostly, and those are the high lights.

darthv727d ago

@kevn you do know that multiplayer is optional right? Only game where I can see it being somewhat mandatory is sea of thieves but even then if you chose not to pay to play online you could still sail the open seas by yourself and fight against skeleton bots.

It's still just $10 a month if you never pay for xbl. I don't play online on the ps4 because i dont subscribe to PS+ and I can still play all my games just fine (sans multiplayer, but then I dont buy multiplayer only games on ps4). there is value in these extra services but everyone has their own spin on what value means to them.

Switch4One7d ago

No I mentioned the big names off the top of my head. There are also games like Oxenfree which was under my radar until I saw it on GP and finished it in one sitting because it was that brilliant.

Also ABZU, Darksiders, DmC, Metro Redux, ReCore, RiME, Ryse, Terraria and now DOOM. Then there's Forza Horizon 4 coming in less than 2 months.

But I could list all the games in existence and you'd still take an adversarial position against Game Pass simply because it's not on your console of choice.

Also you keep saying it's $10 a month neglecting the fact that you can get it cheaper/free online plus you don't have to keep paying for it once you've played all the games that appeal to you.

And all the games i mentioned except The Division and ESO can be played offline, no Gold required so I'm not sure why you feel the need to mention multiplayer.

OneLove7d ago

Were you trying to prove a point lol you made yourself look dumb.

Switch4One7d ago

Also let's test this mostly $5 - $10 theory of yours.
Halo 5 - $19.99
Gears 4 - $39.99
Fallout 4 - 29.99
Hitman - 59.99
DOOM - 14.99
Sea of Thieves - $38.99

These are the Marketplace listed prices. Now I'm sure you can get them cheaper pre-owned but your $5 estimation is grossly inaccurate.

Goldenarmz7d ago

Thats 10$ for 1 game, vs less than 10 for 100 Games a month. Whether or not its each month is moot. Also, Live is 60 bucks for 12 months. You arent paying monthly unless you do 9.99. But unless you only want to buy that 1 10$ game a year. Then i really dont see how its a bad deal.

Profchaos7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Rage is there to help promote rage 2

King_Noctis7d ago

I would expect more as well. But the thing is, MS had already given us alot for Gamepass. And more coming as well such as Forza 4, Halo, Gear, Playground’s RPG...

If that is not a great service then I don’t know what is.

Bronxs157d ago

Maybe kevnb should play rage to let off some of his rage

x_xavier_x7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

Do you ever get tired of complaining all of the time? It seems like it must be exhausting.

sprinterboy6d ago

Agree, rage is like £2 in a used game shop over here in the UK and about £8 from cex used for doom

Xbox gamepass is simply amazing! Now we got Doom and Rage! I'm not even done with Hitman which we just got! they are spoiling us!

stevej3367d ago

@kevnb I like how you can speak for everyone apparently? If you think the game pass line up is pretty crappy then you probably don't play video games.

Profchaos7d ago

Their bethesda partnership is solid and a huge boost to gamepass

Hitman, now this ? nice !

lxeasy7d ago

Xbox Gamepass is the best having service on the market right now without a doubt.

InKnight7s7d ago

I agree althought I am pure PS fan, but I must say and admit, Xbox Game Pass is offering a lot and its the best in the industry yet.

Profchaos7d ago

Same big ps fan I own both though I might buy new titles for my Ps I spend heaps of time on older or exclusive games on gamepass

Kumakai7d ago

dope. Doom looks and runs awesome on the One X btw. Usually liquid smooth and the sharpest version on console.

vikingland17d ago

I agree and Hitman is also the sharpest version on console.

drpepperdude7d ago

Hopefully game pass brings Doom's multiplayer back to life because I just picked up the game a few days ago and it's dead.

BROWN_KNIGHT7d ago

Did not play either. Will dl both. Gamepass rules.
