The game is pretty neat..good for him being able to bounce back.

Looks like you are looking to start a players vs sales debate.

Here in the uk starfield is available for £12 in the bargain bins.

This doesn’t happen with Sony or Nintendo ‘s big first party games

Oh wait it isn’t first party, they were always going to have starfield anyway, they just brought the publisher and decided not to release on PlayStation

14 million installs out of how many GamePass subscribers?
Starfield was supposed to be THE game of the generation, and providing it for free to over 25 million users should imo have a higher install base.

I like Starfield, even bought the game, but it's sadly nowhere near a game of the generation, not even one of the best games last year.

Hope it will make the same turn around as Cyberpunk, FFXIV and No Man Sky 👍

The way people keep turning their attention to it says otherwise. People rely too much on statistics. It doesnt matter if people stopped playing it. People stop playing games

Purple101 come on man stop lying I'm here and you are talking about trade in credit.

Trade in credit is still on sale. That means they're not moving copies as fast as they'd hoped to, so they're starting to employ different schemes to move it faster.

Guess the game might be good in 2 years.

May aswell wait for the final completed game then

Terry_B3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

Thats the plan, worked well with Cyberpunk too

Huge numbers. Congratulations to Microsoft and Bethesda.

A $3 trillion company couldn’t do this without your support.

Sony will wish they had reached 14 million players with Concord

badz1496h ago

@BeHunted

why use Concord? is it coming from a huge developer in the ballpark of Bethesda?

here:

https://www.psu.com/news/ma...

Spider-man 2 over 11mil units SOLD and Helldivers 2 over 12mil units SOLD. Bethesda wish they can use the word SOLD with Starfield LOL

MrNinosan5h ago

@BeHunted
Why use Concord as an example, that doesn't come with a Subscription service that is handed out for free when buying a burger?

Use Astros Playroom for a better measurement, 58+ million installs 😘

Reaper22_1h ago

Doesn't matter. It's a good accomplishment. The game is a success.

That's a possible revenue of nearly a £billion if sales were your main target

fr0sty22m ago

but instead, it wasn't, and GP subscriptions haven't risen by $3 billion, in fact, they're stagnant, so they've lost money.

ChasterMies6h ago

These numbers are difficult to parse without context. How do we compare nunbers played on Game Pass with actual sales of games like Skyrim and Cyberpunk 2077? A good start would be achievement data. If we know how many players kept playing past the first few missions, we would have a good idea of how many players considered the game a value addition for Game Pass.

MrNinosan4h ago

Still difficult to calculate.
I mean, every single MS game are supposed to be on GamePass Ultimate.
If you combine all those possible sales and on top of that, remove all costs for third party games on the services.

Would the total revenue/profit be bigger or smaller than the total revenue from GamePass alone?

I'm most certain this is eating profit madly

ChasterMies1h ago

$204/year for Game Pass Ultimate is a lot of potential profit for Microsoft. It’s $2B/year for every 10M subscribers. That pays for a lot of game development. The problem is that Microsoft also has to pay all those 3rd parties for their games. I think the future of Game Pass is fewer 3rd party games.

@ChasterMies

Amazon India: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is about $100 for 24 Months, or $19 for 12 months (2x 6 Months Game Pass Core subscription). VPN does the trick when redeeming on Microsoft's website.
