Move Over Game Pass: Utomik Netflix-Like Gaming Service Is Coming With 700 Games

Microsoft isn’t the only company seeking to make a big play in the subscription service market where video games are concerned. Most folks today might not have heard of subscription service known as Utomik for the PC, a platform that is more compelling than Microsoft’s Game Pass.

The story is too old to be commented.

They can't scale and won't last. Besides 5 games a week to keep the library fresh is an excuse. lol!

TFJWM1082d ago

I agree they can't scale but if they are offering new experiences over game pass I think it more worthwhile...

Where are the 700+ games?

Edit:
Ohh I see, its padded with dress me up games. Most of the actual games are also on Game Pass.

Jon_Targaryen1081d ago

Typed Bioshock, nothing, typed Resident Evil, nothing... Most of the common games I know of arent on their list... then I went like... There it is.... Always a catch...

Probably a lot of casual mobile games. Muper Sario Sisters...

BlackRaven85_11082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

They've been trying since 2015. The Utomik service isn't new.

Great thumbnail in the article. Looks like great people

Nintentional1081d ago

The one on the far right looks great 😏

yeahokwhatever1081d ago

..if by "great" you mean 12...

AmstradAmiga1082d ago

This sounds great. Wonder if MS will up their Game Pass to be more competitive. Love the family plan aspect of it.

KillBill1082d ago

@AmstradAmiga - So, it shows that they have little influence in the market and are not doing enough to draw a player base.

“So, it shows that they have little influence in the market and are not doing enough to draw a player base.“
Which company are you talking about?

KillBill1081d ago

@Rude-ro - I was replying in respect to Utomik as it has been around awhile with little to no support. While Gamepass is relatively new and obviously getting a lot of attention with latest focus for it.

Ill subscribe for about tree fifty a month. Other than that ill stick with PC and playstation

bolimekurac1081d ago

yea same here ill stick with xbox and pc

subtenko1080d ago

@bolimekurac

Why would you get an xbox if gamepass was 3.50? That would mean you get all those games (supposidly) for less than $400 in a 9 year cycle (typically microsoft wants to push out stuff faster than sony too) I would rather get gamepass instead of buying a $400 xbox and all those $60 games, where is the logic?

Also why would you even get an Xbox and PC? Thats paying for stuff twice on the same system and also paying for xbox live....

(This is assuming gamepass can be used on PC for any ACTUAL xbox exclusives) so yea gamepass would be a good deal for the few games I cant get on PC, then I just unsubscribe after playing the game.

kevnb1082d ago

This is just a steaming service, yawn.

bluefox7551082d ago

It's not a streaming service though. It downloads the game in chunks, and runs them directly from your computer hardware. You don't need a strong internet connection, because it doesn't actually stream.

bluefox7551081d ago

Not sure why I got so many downvotes. It's not hard to look it up on their website.

darx1082d ago

You should have their FAQ

IamTylerDurden11082d ago

Or u could take an hour to download every game. Have fun.

darx1081d ago

Just like downloading that you already do on the consoles.

StormSnooper1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

Ummm sooo this is interesting... if true, Sony and MS would be wise to stick together on this issue otherwise a service like this could take their cake. Look at all the companies the article claims are supporting this service. Essentially they are trying to take the console maker’s cash cow and sharing it among themselves.

DJStotty1081d ago

How are Utomik going to get Microsoft/Sony exclusives on their service?
