Nowhere MS doesn't have no exclusive so the pass is useless

Servbot412257d ago

There are some early access and alpha games like No Man's Sea and Playerunknown's Poor Performance.

HeisenbergX2257d ago

Let's be honest that's why this game pass thing even exists.

LgbtWarrior2257d ago

Im team PS4 but Ps now sucks because Its streaming. Xbox Pass is download which is awesome And pass includes Xbox, x1 arcade classics, genesis games etc. it’s a legacy service. PS now doesn’t even have PS2 or PS1 games like they said they would eventually have. it’s just PS3 and 4. you can’t beat pass right now. It’s really awesome. No graphical loss, latency or bs associated with streaming. Ps now really need to revamp. Sony needs to invest in backwards compatibility it can be done. And if they choose not to you there’s no excuse not to be able to stream all of Sony’s legacy titles it’s lazy and complete BS.

I'd pass on both.
Why accumulate subscriptions? Also EA? And then what? The companies should focus on improving the one almost compulsory subscription.

_-EDMIX-_2257d ago

I have no clue what Sony is going to do with PlayStation now as it just seems like they're scaling back devices and I'm not sure even they know what they're going to do with the future of it.

I'm not really sure because I don't rent my games so I don't get it to be honest.

- Is Xbox Game Pass a Game Changer?
No.
- Where Does PlayStation Go With PS Now?
Nowhere.

Eidolon2257d ago

They're both not doing much for either of them. I find myself using Game Pass, but not PS Now.

SegaGamer2256d ago

They both have their issues. Xbox game pass is limited to Xbox One and PS Now is too expensive and demands a strong internet connection.

Skankinruby2257d ago

Neither one are revolutionary, offline digital games will be a huge step

Eidolon2257d ago

A lot of games, but streaming sucks for majority of people, or at least those of us who can tell the difference in latency and frame and quality consistency. Honestly, I'd rather pay $5-10(sometimes cheaper or free) per game than subscribe $10 a month so I can own it and play it with 0 network encumberance.

Time for a change. Football games haven't evolved much.

It’s tough when there is no competition

The barber shop and roulette wheel are going to be awesome.

Sorry George Miller, but you’re wrong about the Mad Max game

George Miller expressed dismay toward the 2015 Mad Max game recently, but Avalanche Studios' take on the lore is still so good to this day.

Mad Max is a good game... George Miller should STFU.

-Foxtrot12h ago

I think the funny thing is if Kojima made a Mad Max game it would be so trippy and "out there" I don't think it would feel like Mad Max by the time he's done with it. This is why he's better off with original new IPs.

Kojima seems like a buzz word these film directors use because he's probably the only big name they've heard from the gaming industry.

Wretchedstain7h ago

Article is correct in my opinion, Miller is wrong. That Death Stranding II trailer is bonkers, looking forward to that in itself.

And I agree, unless Mr Kojima wants to change his tune, or laughably, be told what to do, you're right, it wouldn't be Mad Max or close.

porkChop7h ago

Yup, Kojima really doesn't suit Mad Max. Avalanche did a great job though. It looked, felt, and played like what I'd expect from a Mad Max game. I really enjoyed my time with it, and the sand storms were handled incredibly well.

TheGamingHounds6h ago

I never played it but the recent buzz around Mad Max has piqued my interest. Will check it out this year for sure

maelstromb6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

MM is not a perfect game by any means as it was held back by lots of repetitious, standard open-world copy and paste missions, but the devs SO perfectly captured the world, atmosphere, lore and brutality. It also just so happens to boast one of THE best photo modes out there and some of the most impressive explosions I've ever seen in a game to date. The car combat is of course another impressive standout, both vicious and fun. MM is a game which I have revisited multiple times since its release, and now having just seen Furiosa, I can feel it calling me back again.

There's a ton to love there, but I think you'll pickup on the areas where the devs struggled likely due to reigning in the scope, budget and time constraints, leading to an incredibly fun, albeit uneven experience. Though, as mentioned, it's absolutely a game worth experiencing once, and I truly hope you enjoy it. The game really does deserve a sequel.

victorMaje4h ago

Word for word. Exactly this. A lot of fun to be had in there. A true Mad Max game. Sequel can’t come soon enough.

maelstromb6h ago

Honestly, Kojima would do the game justice, but given his studio's current workload, it's a bit far flung. I could much rather see Bend Studios (Days Gone dev) doing a Mad Max follow-up. I'm playing through DG right now for the first time and I see lots of similarities between the games to where imo Bend could develop an impressive MM sequel.
