Are we approaching the bottom of the slippery slope we were warned about?

Abash2068d ago

Feels great knowing that I can just fork over $10 when I feel like playing the first party Xbox games on my Xbox One X. I plan to do this the months Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 launch and will do so with every new first party launch.

I should be spending about $60 this year to play and finish all the first party launches of 2018. Great deal!

Wow! I'll be able to enjoy and complete all those Games on my PC (Via play anywhere) for a mere 10$.

I probably won't buy any of their Single player games and just rent it for 10$, complete it so I don't ever have to pay again for said title. 10$ and nothing more to complete a just released title, awesome deal!

I'll keep my purchase for the multiplayer games.

Vasto2068d ago


You got it.

No more $65 for exclusives. Only $9.99 for a whole month!

ZeroX98762068d ago

Too many games I completed and never played them again afterwards. at 10$, I can complete it and stop paying right away, making every singleplayer game I buy 10$ instead of 60$ on play anywhere. that's just awesome!

"Wow! I'll be able to enjoy and complete all those Games on my PC (Via play anywhere) for a mere 10$."

Wonder how you gonna do that, since last time i checked GP is not avaliable on PC. Lmao! XD

TankCrossing2068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

@Obscure_Observer Last time I checked (about 30 seconds ago) it worked. If you subscribe to Game Pass on Xbox you can play the games that support Crossbuy games on PC. It even has a "free with gamepass" label on the Windows store.

I don't think Microsoft have ever confirmed that being the case though, and I wouldn't bank on it staying that way forever. Hopefully Microsoft will be able to extend the service to PC properly in the near future.

mark_parch2068d ago

does anybody know if you can game share game pass.

Razzer2068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

Game Pass works fine on my Windows 10 PC for Play Anywhere games. Currently playing Gears 4 and Recore.

Game changer

solderman2068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

We are but many people can't see 1 meter in front of themselves. It is classic Microsoft when they have nothing to offer just give it away for almost free to undercut and erode everything. I was planning on buying Sea of Thieves but after this announcement I'm not. I'm going Sony and Nintendo full time now.

Razzer2068d ago

Why would this change your mind on buying Sea of Thieves? How is this undercutting or eroding anything? How is this anything but good news?

killswitch802068d ago

Tankcrossing is right.. eventually you will be only be playing games are invited to the club. Quality can also decrease. Exclusives don't have to worry about being good because you are already paying for that membership. Microsoft and other companies if they adopt this can further narrow and dictate what you are able to play.

Obscure_Observer2068d ago


Thanks for the heads up! I didn´t know that you can "share" your Xbox Game Pass with PC.

Prem8tuaProcrastin8a2068d ago

No, but in terms of trolling/reaching for anything anti xbox, your comment definitely is.

IGiveHugs2NakedWomen2068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

Microsoft's all digital, Xbox Live as a service future is right around the corner.

Aenea2068d ago

@abash @Vasto

And now we know why MS doesn't like single player games, you finish those and are done with them, MP games you want to keep playing and thus subbing to Game Pass for...

jon3sy92068d ago

yes you can game share game pass i used the free trial and we played together no problem

Death2068d ago


If you don’t want to play games for $10 a month, you still have the option to buy the games at full price in store or digitally.

DarXyde2068d ago

That's actually great news. Definitely seeing a shift in their model. At this point, I think they want to get their games out there and keep expanding them (so multiplayer games mostly).

If this is the case, they won't need to release many new games. Just keep expanding the ones available. It's a different strategy, for sure. Also means they're not taking huge losses on Game Pass titles. Very interested in seeing how this plays out.

Now, they just need to release the games.

Oh that is Freaking awesome! Glad I have I have Xbox Game Pass!

WilliamSheridan2068d ago

This might make me pull the trigger...

lxeasy2068d ago

@williamsheridan do it!

GottaBjimmyb2068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

Yea, this is a win no matter how you look at it.

1. You get EVERY new MS published releases for $9.99/month along with 90-100 other major titles.
2. This will subsidize cost for lower earning titles and allow MS to publish a more diverse catalog without hurting bottom line.
3. The more people that subscribe the bigger the budget for game production is

One negative is, this means they are putting the onus for game funding on their consumer base by tying game funding to this service, however, I think the plus sides outweighs down greatly.

That said, if Sony or Nintendo released this same product for $9.99 (or even $15.00 as frankly their first party titles are much more diverse and more titles) I would also be on that day 1, even without the additional 90-100 tit0es game pass offers.

That all aside, I imagine most people will still just buy the game normally for the near future anyway.

Zeref2068d ago

This is huge news.

Halo 6, Crackdown 3, Forza Horizon 4, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves! + every other exclusive For only $10 a month? This is just insane.

Jinger2068d ago

Also includes a ton of BC titles and such that maybe you never got to play. Game Pass is going to blow up!

NoPeace_Walker2068d ago (Edited 2068d ago )

HUGE Megaton news..indeed!👍🏼 ;

I've been a Gamepass subscriber since day one and the ability to download the games locally on my HDD and don't have to worry about network outages and streaming quality is a major Plus. Now, day one XB1 console exclusives releases all for $9.99 a month!!, this is really For The Players 👍🏼

Kribwalker2068d ago

it’s an amazing deal. MS definitely are bringing some serious value here #4theplayers
