Phil Spencer tweets: "I'm glad you like it. Just the start but the early signups and feedback have been really strong, thanks for that.”
Okay cool stuff now can you determine how strong which is vague, and have infinite implications.
Probably the same implications as when sony said the ps4 pro and psvr sales was strong
Pretty much 😑
So, in other words, vague and inconclusive? I assume you meant to take a shot at Sony, but I'm not sure you meant that shot to double for Microsoft.
How is strong vague? It's not weak or mediocre.
I'm saying it's vague, because it doesn't accurately represent. It's a placeholder for example a more accurate statement would be " Xbox game pass has great impression, with strong early sign up and there is # amount of ppl on the service." That's why I'm saying. Every companies does this type of language to build excitement, and present a reason to join. So don't you worry I'm not targeting MS here. I said this to explain why I said this.
Implication are Strongly mediocre, strongly weak, strong impact etc...
"So don't you worry I'm not targeting MS here" Yes you are
In the marketing world "strong" is way below amazing, incredible, overwhelming, etc.
Jason Apparently you're quite uninformed about something me targeting MS? Lol Do I need reexplain myself again.... Strong is a vague term, that's used in every company to gather hype. Sigh stupidity.
@ Xi Strongly mediocre? Lol! That may be a first
Jmetal It's a word
@XiNatsu doesnt matter what the concrete number is on signups what matters is microsoft/xbox gets to call all those devs/publishers who have a game on the service and say, we got some $$$ to send out to you...
Sigh it's a buzzword
Personally I'd rather just buy the physical copy of the game(s) at least i know when i don't have money i can still play the games that i own.
Devs/Pubs dont get to see any revenue in used games. Game Pass allows 3rd party developers to make money from the rental service and if they elect to buy the game digitally devs also get a cut of that as well
@big I always buy my games new because i like having a collection of games. So they get a cut of my purchase. Not big on rental services for my games.
Well, you don't buy all the games in Xbox Game Pass, do you? It is a way for you to try out lots of games, if you like it enough, you can keep playing. If you want to ensure you can access it when you are poor, then you can buy the game at a discount. in reality though, if you buy 2 new game releases a year, it's already the price of Xbox Game Pass, so it is a very low cost way of getting access to lots of games given that you don't want the latest and greatest. At least this type of service is an option (unlike on Playstation where they don't think EA Access is good value), and if you don't like it you can choose to ignore it and do it the way you always done.
@dont I understand what your saying, but im not big on digital (as i only have destiny and mafia 3) on my ps4 the rest of my games are physical. I will always choose that over digital, also i already know the games i will buy when they're released. So if MS E3 can convince me to repurchase the console (slim) i highly doubt i would sign up for this service because i love collecting physical copies of games.
So basically, it under performed. Who comes out with such vague wording to praise performance of something they just released?
So basically, your just talking out of your A.
Xbox and especially nintendo love using vague wordings when it comes to games and sales.
If the very fact that his statement on a new service or product having strong early numbers is vague and unheard of to you, I think you haven't read any pr statements from any company on the planet over the last decade.
Well, Microsoft does, for one. And so does Sony: "The sales of Pro are stronger than that of Slim, as we see it" Vague wording doesn't mean anything, put your agenda away Source: https://www.google.com.au/a...
Perhaps we can get a yearly plan price like EA Access. I'd keep it then.
[email protected] here. Strong = vague apparently. I'm glad people are liking it, I will definitely give the free trial a go.
That's a vaguely strong opinion you just stated there buddy... I got the free trial and gotta say, I'm playing a lot of Mad Max right now and pleasantly surprised at how much I like it. It will only improve over time.
I've been enjoying my 14 day free pass and having a great time playing some of the games I passed on . The service is a keeper , look forward to trying to play all the games
I'm not surprised they are getting so many people signing up for it. I'm sure that will increase when the Scorpio launches. For anyone who doesn't own an XB1 and they pick up a Scorpio at launch, the XGP will be a must have companion service right away. This is great news.
What a better time to enjoy this since there are virtually no new games being released!
Why are there so many 'inappropriate' tags for pro xbox comments on this post?
Early signups... as in 14day free trial? Maybe if they didn't force players to enter a credit card payment system for the service they would get a better response? They have pre-purchase card options for XBL Gold and MS points... they need to do the same with this. I for one will not attach my credit card to any game service.
