I hope either Nintendo ports this emulator to the Switch or someone else can homebrew it because the Wii has some fantastic games that would be great on the go (DKC Returns, Galaxy 1 and 2, Brawl, LoZ TP and SS, NSMBWii, etc.)

FTC Calls Xbox Game Pass Price Hike 'Exactly The Sort Of Consumer Harm' It Tried To Stop

Despite losing its lawsuit seeking an injunction to freeze Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard in July 2023, the FTC appealed the decision with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. While it awaits a final decision from those justices, the FTC’s been filing additional evidence to support its claims that the merger would hurt competition in gaming and hurt customers, including a letter from earlier this year after Microsoft laid off nearly 2,000 employees across the newly acquired teams.

FTC never heard of inflation. Did they expect Gampass to remain the same price forever?
Would be funny if Gampass remained at 10€ fifty years from now...

"Microsoft insists Game Pass prices ‘will not increase as a result of Activision merger"

"It says a price rise “would be counter-productive as it would increase subscriber churn rates”

"Game Pass prices will not increase as a result of the Merger"

Gamepass wouldn't increase in result of the merger... but it doesn't mean it wouldn't increase due to other reasons, like inflation, extra expenses, etc. Do you expect Gamepass to remain the same price forever?

All other online services have been increasing prices.

boing12d ago

I cancelled my Ultimate sub after the announcement, so they were right. And yet, they still did it. That is so MS.

Einhander19722d ago

Inflation is down since they made that statement.

They also call into question the 2000+ people Microsoft has fired from the developers they bought.

And again, this is contradictory to what Microsoft said they would do.

They lied in court.

Reaper22_2d ago

Lol...they never said gamepass wouldn't increase and they never said it would because of the merger. And even they did it's their right to do so. So what's your point?

So we blaming this on inflation now? Lol ok

lelo2play2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Sony and other streaming services (Netflix, HBO, ...) have been increasing prices and altering their services. Do you expect Gamepass to remain the same price forever?
Others can increase prices and alter their services, but Microsoft can't?

Hypocrite much!

DarXyde2d ago

Absolutely.

Ego inflation.

IRetrouk2d ago

Lelo, they upped the price last year, along with their xboxs......

waderae2d ago

I believe they call it mental gymnastics.

Profchaos2d ago

Exactly let's not forget this deal was done under the same economic climate this was predictable yet they maintained they would not be increasing prices yet now the merger is done they increased prices and split tiers to avoid further scrutiny.

This is and always has been how Microsoft do business deflect blame and increase profits

Inflation doesn't double something in a few months.

anast3d ago

You are correct. It's actually lower. It was around 7% in 2021 and now it's around 3%, which is ideal.

REDDURT3d ago

Dude they are lying. That inflation low keeps getting silly and silly.

gold_drake2d ago

inflation aint the same thing as to lock stuff behind a paywall that was previously not. lol

*activate clown vision*
*everything looks exactly the same*

KwietStorm_BLM2d ago

Yeah you're right. It's just a coincidence that this happened after spending billions of dollars buying up the industry. And closing studios. And firing thousands of people. All while barely being able to give away Xboxes. It's all because of inflation. LOL

XiNatsuDragnel2d ago

Fanboyism bro this is pure fanboyism, it's bs we all know it so stop defending Microsoft.

thorstein2d ago

You said it all, my friend, you said it all.

jznrpg2d ago

But inflation has gone down in the U.S.

ChasterMies2d ago

Except $/mb of broadband, $/mb of storage, and $/compute power only gets cheaper over time. As Microsoft’s overhead has gone down, it’s prices have gone up.
