We’ve been watching Xbox Game Pass insanely closely since it was first announced. In fact, we called it the best value in gaming last week. However, when Microsoft first announced that Sea of Thieves would be included in Xbox Game Pass, it was hard to predict how this would affect online sales of the game. That title eventually rose to the top slot on the Xbox’s Store’s Paid Games. The same happened for State of Decay 2. These were both new releases, so it wasn’t particularly surprising to see them purchased at a high rate. They were two of the more hyped exclusive titles the Xbox One has had this year.
