Gaming Fathers Unite!

Xbox.com has a new personality. Brian "Brize" Johnson aka… Gamer Dad!

It seems that Microsoft is taking yet another step to target an audience to subliminally persuade them to buy a 360. Now with that low blow out of the way; I would also like to say that no matter what console these parents end up buying, Gamer Dad over at xbox.com looks very promising and should end up a top recommendation for dads (and moms) subjected to our gaming society.

Brize (Xbox Live Gamertag) will write articals about Playing Together, Family Settings, Game Time, Game School (Consoles 101 for parents-which is a great idea) and maybe even some Game Reviews. The Xbox Staff has wisely chosen a new memeber who is no stranger to writing, as Johnson co-wrote Xbox 360 for Dummies. Instead of telling you what you should do, Brian plans to be objective and enlightning while sharing his experiences in his writings.

-New acquisition
-mid Gen refresh console
-new controller
-GTA 6 will be on gamepass
-Elders scroll 6

GTA 6 launching on Gamepass would be cost ineffective for both Xbox and Rockstar. Big Budget third party don’t launch on Gamepass because they can’t be subsidized.

What would the cost of GT6 on gamepass be ? Over a billion would be the starting point is my guess

Sciurus_vulgaris2d ago

Microsoft would likely have to pay a lump sum based on projected sales, plus licensing and engagement fees to Rockstar. Additionally, GTA 6 uses a lot of licensed music, and some employees at Rockstar probably get bonuses based on sale figures.

Going by how many people viewed the news about a trailer it would cost even too much for MS. 2-3 million upfront would be my guess. Or they could simply do every person who downloads the GRA6 from GP Ms will pay them for a fully game sold share (usually console makers keep $10, retailer takes $10 and rest goes to publishers who than spreads it accordingly with bonuses and royalties)

neutralgamer19922d ago


Could we please stop with acquisitions. They can barely manage the talent they have. BG3 wouldn’t surprise me if it ends up on GP but it would cost MS a hefty amount

Crows901d 23h ago

Dont blame him...all these acquisitions and yet theyve got little to nothing to show for it. Xbox gamers are starving for good console exclusives.

Rutaprkl1d 23h ago

Gimme some of that stuff you're taking...

RAFTECH261d 23h ago

Sure. It’s the $69 billion activision deal.

tay87011d 22h ago

Lmao gta 6 won't be on gamepass. Elder scrolls 6 is YEARS away.

Don't think BG3 will be announced for gamepass, but it wouldn't shock me.

Gamingsince19811d 21h ago

They can't sell the consoles they are already making , a new refresh of console would be silly.

Gta6 on gamepass is not gonna happen unless MS buys rockstar, they have said themselves they won't ever be putting new release games on gamepass because it makes no sense to them financially.

SonyStyled1d 18h ago

Anything can be on GamePass if it’s paid for. But as you mentioned I don’t think Take 2 would be willing to sell Rockstar or the GTA IP. If a gamepass deal occurs, I’d question if 2k would have a physical release on xbox at that point

Nope, Sony will have marketing rights to GTA 6 plus PC will have to wait 12 months before getting to play.

andy851d 13h ago (Edited 1d 13h ago )

And tomorrow I'm going to win the lottery. Do you really think they'll be bringing out a new console with all the issues they already have with 2 different power consoles? And if BG3 was out day one I'd agree it could be a gamepass coup as that'd make people more inclined to choose Xbox as a console. But it's been out 4 months, most who were hyped for it have already bought it on PC or PS5. And I'd really doubt Rockstar will be doing Xbox favours with regards to GTA considering the majority of their profit is on the PS side and I doubt we'll see any ES6 footage for at least 2 years.

New games that was never announced with gameplay footage n release date?

RaidenBlack1d 8h ago

how about Gears 2&3 Remaster and Fable II Remaster?

Crows902d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Perfect Dark Gameplay
Fable Gameplay
Gears announcement
Hellblade 2 combat gameplay

Those are my top on wish to see.
Anything from other recently purchased studios wont feel as great knowing MS just took them away from other platforms forever.

What I hope not to see is more acqusitions...

neutralgamer19922d ago

Would love to see an announcement regarding all gears of war games on Steam

Knightofelemia1d 22h ago

I just want exclusives that will make me say damn I need to buy an Xbox for this.

badz1491d 10h ago

Not gonna happen as long as they still launch their games day and date with PC
