Microsoft has revealed the games that will be available on Xbox Game Pass subscription service and it include some nice surprises.
Lol @ your disagrees It's a good list, and it's only $10 a month, I think that's pretty good value. They could have started off slow and only included a bunch of lesser known games, but there's quite a few AAA on there
Meh, the disagrees are from people that think streaming games to play is the best service.
Damm, that's a helluva list, plus it's also month to month so you could quit anytime, start up anytime. Price of 1 new game would get you 6 months to play all these. If I didn't already own so many games I'd give it a go.
The price point is superb, I wouldn't mind if they let you even stream them, but I would like other devices other than the Xbox One, specifically a Mac or PC. Also I'm sure microsofts online structure/servers wouldn't nearly give too many issues. I wish Sony would've came down in price, and not made my pstv worthless.
I wonder what the cost for a sub is?
9.99 per month.
Thanks , that's affordable considering the amount of games.
Great question. Too bad they didn't mention the subscription price before the second paragraph in the post. Otherwise, i may have had to read 5 entire sentences.
Yeah ,my bad. I only read the game list oops.
UK £7.99 a month. A lotess than I expected. I just wish I wasn't an adult with little time to play
Did Mad Max receive a patch or is it still buggy?
If Avalanche did it, then it's probably still buggy.
i ran into no bugs
Come E3 please!!
The only game I'm surprised they put up here was Halo 5. Though, it makes sense to have a big title of the current gen to spur interest.
Yeah, to make it look more impressive, but really, how many x1 users that wanted to play halo 5 haven't done it already? The service is nice, the price is good, the list is not that great yet, but there's potential there!
Good amount of those were free already.
Awesome. Now if you can time warp this thing back to 2010 when most of these these things were in their prime, I'm sure people would be doing back flips to play these things.
You mean to say that people aren't interested in playing old games?? Then I guess the mini nes sold out everywhere just because it was small. Games don't get old, the people do. Personally, I think older games have a lot more replay value and fun factor than most games that came out in the last 3 yrs.
Because games that came out on the previous generation are comparable to classics that came out on a console released over 30 years ago, right?
A sizable chunk of these games were free with Gold. In my opinion, not worth it now, but maybe it will be in the future. Hulu sucked when it first came out as well.
First: Hulu still sucks Second: Sure if you have been a Gold member for 3 1/2 years of the Xbox Ones existence and maybe several years prior to that as part Xbox 360 you may accumulated many items in the catalog. I have been around for those 6+ years of Gold free games. So, I know what you mean. But, there is also quite a lot (if you haven't bought many of the AAA games in the pack so far). But, many people don't subscribe to Gold and Gold is not a prerequisite for this membership system. During the Alpha I was excited to see Bioshock. I never played it for some reason and missed it when it was G4G a while back. So I might just get it a month or two and binge play the whole series. Third: As you noticed this catalog is designed not for the gamers that buy/ a lot games (most users actual only buy a few games a year- but, it is for the majority of gamers that are either new or have not had Gold or the most common who don't buy a lot of games in the first place. An instant growing catalog. So, knowing that it is a bargain for those people. I have a lot friends who this membership makes perfect sense. Fourth: Unless there is unique content coming (Phil would like to do that). People like me, and I suppose you (except for an occasional game gem) will rarely see value because i tend to buy AAA with regularly when the first come out, pay for Gold games, and always pick the lots of little games when on sale. It just isn't a service for people like me to use with regularity. Not everything is designed for everybody. But, it definitely is a great deal for a majority of Xbox gamers who don't already have their own personal catalog approaching 400 games. $10 and get 100 games and growing catalog without having to spend the thousands I have spent.
Nice idea! The list, isn't that impressive right now, less than 40 %are x1 games and only two aaa exclusives. But I like the concept.
Wow, so many games I never got a chance to play first time round. This is a really impressive list of games to start with. I cant believe how much the Xbox proposition has changed since that fateful may 2013 reveal.
For $10 a month, it's worth picking up a cheap xbone to play some exclusives and other stuff that i don't have to buy. to me, playstation now was worth it on a ps3 due to its library and not having to actually buy games.
Sucks that I already own most of them, could've saved some money granted alot of them are still in my backlog...the life of a hoarder lol...
