I think we'll see more of the third-person shooting and vehicular elements that were teased in the last trailer.

If you played FC 24...you have played FC 25. Expect little to no improvements...especially AI.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat. Hence why I stopped buying sports games NHL 25 would be no different then NHL 24 or NHL 23.

Microsoft broke another promise with its new Xbox Game Pass deal

When asked about Xbox Game Pass in May in an interview with Bloomberg, president Sarah Bond said, “We know our core users love Game Pass. Game Pass is a gaming subscription where you get a whole portfolio of games. But importantly, you get every single one of our games, day one, on Xbox Game Pass.”

Nothing new to those that had common sense about the whole consolidation nonsense some were happy about that we said was going to come back and bite you in the ass. Where games that were coming to the platform anyway, were taken away from other platforms to feed a losing, loss leading platform. Where games are held back by another bad decision which was Xbox series S to push game pass. And while you were gloating about the purchase, employees lost their jobs and a good developer was closed after making a good game. Thank yourselves.

We said prices were going to go up, tiers were going to come. And not only gamers on other platforms getting screwed, but those that were happy about the acquisitions were going to get screwed as you'll have to pay MORE just to get the same thing and pay back the purchase of cod.

And, as we have seen again and again, Microsoft either misled, lied or flip-flopped on what they said faster than a dinner gets cold after cooking it. We said they were a bunch of liars and only are using games for their ultimate goal of services. Not a creative bone in Microsoft's body. They only purchase and screw everyone with their motives.

To all those that still support this shitty company, take a bow for supporting the acquisition. Because you screwed everyone over with most games that were going to come to Xbox anyway. You screwed over PlayStation fans, Nintendo fans, developers, employees and YOURSELVES. You made the industry worse. Just like when you started your bad decision making by paying for online and horse armor micro transactions, supporting RROD shipping boxes and always online because "everyone has internet. Look what you won. Vaseline and higher prices.

No need to be so emotional over an opinion article and something you have no control over. Some people like xbox and what it offers. Microsoft can't stop anyone from playing the games they want to play. That decision is ours. If you don't like what they offer then spend your money elsewhere. No one got screwed over.

"Some people like xbox and what it offers"

I am genuinely curious. What exactly does Xbox offers that rivals Playstation and Nintendo don't? And I mean factually and not subjective things like controller preference. Does it offer significantly better performance on multiplats? More exclusive games? More critically acclaimed games? Wider variety of games? More durable/reliable hardware? Is it more affordable? Any unique features or services not found elsewhere? I honestly want to know what an Xbox fan sees in Xbox that makes them prefer it over rivals.

Hotpot19h ago

These so called Xbox fans are just pre Xbox One era fans desperate in defending the box that defined their childhood/teenage gaming memories. The denial is just so strong because it touched their core experience as a gamer.

If you see objectively how many new fans has XB got since XB1? Almost none, even in N4G the fans practically old devoted folks. Their sales are trending down since X360. It can only cling in matured markets like NA/UK while the beatdown is getting worse in emerging markets like South America, Middle East, South East Asia, etc.

"desperate in defending the box that defined their childhood/teenage gaming memories"

That's so weird because it's kind of true

Most people I know who still game on Xbox but aren't really clued in with the industry news will think we're still in the happy High School days of Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Halo 3, L4D and Gears of War

S2Killinit14h ago

You keep saying that. “Don't get emotional”. I imagine it’s a little hard for xbox players not to get emotional while getting bent over by MS.

Cacabunga3h ago

When they break their promise for the 500 time and fans still wish for things to improve then i say good for those fans they deserve what’s happening to them.

You are absolutely right of course, these guys actually defend getting lied too, they seem to want to be lied to, I guess it's easier than hearing the truth.

@GamerRN

What are you even talking about?

You keep saying this and I saw at least one person literally link you to the Microsoft page.

Game Pass updates announced July 2024

You xbox fans just live outside reality... I guess that is easier than accepting the truth as well.

I think GamerRN is suffering from PTSD. It seems the price hike was such a major trauma to him that he lost his mind. Now he is living in denial and delusion and posting "still a rumor" everywhere. I think he requires our compassion and sympathy to overcome his grief. :P

Blame the greedy devs for selling out to soulless publishers that ultimately sell out to big corporate greed.

All about that $$$ not about the fans or the products.

notatallsurprisinggg20h ago

thats a lot of tears over not getting a couple of games included in a base membership. The entitlement people seem to have is embarrassing.

staticall15h ago

@notatallsurprisinggg
But those «couple of games» were the only reason why Xbox Game Pass was better than the competitors' services, according to every Xbox fan around.

For G-d's sake, even Xbox trailers had «Play day one on Game Pass» plastered at the end, with no asterisks or any other caveats (don't believe me, search for "Indiana Jones and the Great Circle" trailer for instance).

So what gives? Is it ok for them to lie to people? There are no excuses for this BS and you know it.

PhillyDonJawn11h ago

Facts they went up 3 damn dollars and ppl that don't even own the console spazzing out 🤣 hey staticall! Newsflash games are still coming day 1

PhillyDonJawn12h ago(Edited 12h ago)

How are we getting screwed and paying more? I'm finna play 6 highly anticipated games (+more) for like $200.

You guys really don't see the appeal to xbox? Home to 2 of the best shooters of all time, Halo has no equal or better on PS, Gears ain't nothing like it on the market. Did you not see the game show? Fable is back! Nostalgia crowd going crazy! Cod, Doom, perfect dark day one for 20 bucks! These 3 games alone pay for a years worth of gamepass. Then hit fan favorite sleeper hits like State of Decay coming out with a 3rd. Ea Access/play included. College football is back baby!!! And a more preferred controller to top it off. I didn't even mention Indiana and Avowed, etc. Ps5 has nothing interesting on the horizon. Gow was cool, RnC wasn't bad, Spiderman is great and they finally got a solid shooter with helldivers.....nothing else of interest.

The day Halo come to is the day I'd leave xbox alone. But even then it's hard to abandon gamepass the value is insane and considering they have a cheap console it'll be too tempting to not buy it as a secondary console to play gamepass. Coming for someone that play all consoles

AsimLionheart12h ago

It's $240. Not $200. Big difference. You can buy 7 games for $240 and get to keep them if you just wait a few months for a 50% discount. You are not going to play a 100 games in a year. You are overpaying for renting a few games and rest of the games that you won't even play.

PhillyDonJawn11h ago(Edited 11h ago)

Games are $70, 7 games would be $490. By your own logic I just saved $250. I know I don't play 100 games a year that's why I only brought up 6 games and a few honorable mentions. Gamepass saves me hella money. Even at 240 which I said 200 cause I'm likely to unsub for 2-3 months. Perfect Dark, Fable and Sod3 were guaranteed day 1 buys. Sod is now AAA so I'm assuming it'll be a $60 title. That's $60 between the 3. Gamepass has officially paid for itself already. Doom, Gears, Indiana were gonna be 50% off buys that's $30-40 a piece. That's another $100+ saved. College football another $60 buy I now get with access. Then there a few other titles I wouldn't buy but had my interest that I may end up liking. Never played diablo but I'm about too. How much value things like that hold to you? I'm not only playing more games I never would've had. I'm saving money on top of what I wouldve spent

AsimLionheart10h ago(Edited 10h ago)

"Games are $70, 7 games would be $490"

Did you read my comment where I said wait for a few months for a 50% discount? Secondly, If the release dates for the 6 or 7 games you want to play are spread over even just 2 years and you keep subscribed to GPU for 2 years then you will be paying $480 to play those games. You will be paying even more if they are spread over more years. And I can guarantee those games will be spread over multiple years to keep people subbed. In the meantime, they will be paying for the wait just like Xbox gamers have been paying for GPU to wait for all those games to release since the 2020 showcase when those games were revealed. Not to mention you don't even know if they will end up good or another Redfall, Hellblade 2, or Starfield.

However, I do admit that you can save a lot of money if you unsubscribe and subscribe whenever a new game is released. In the end, it is your money, and if you think you are getting good value out of what you are spending then good for you. I don't see the value in keeping subbed to GPU for years upon years waiting for those one or two games I want to play. I can just buy them when they arrive.

PhillyDonJawn5h ago(Edited 5h ago)

@Lionheart. Wait months even year+ till my most wanted games are 50% off? lmao! You fail hard. If that's the case gamepass standard says hello. And hell no, I WANT IT DAY 1 so you making bs narratives up that don't fit me as a gamer. You can wait I'm playing day 1 and saving money DEAL WITH IT. I literally broke it down and you're still in denial. I named multiple games that A. Make gamepass a pay off and B. Fills the next 2 years. So again by your own logic. Gamepass doesn't cost more than buying these games and cheaper. 480 is cheaper than 490 and I get to play other titles like Indiana and Avowed that interested me on a smaller level so again I'm saving HUNDREDS of dollars. BTW cdkeys have deals on gamepass so you can get it for under $200 a year

AsimLionheart3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

" lmao! You fail hard. And hell no, I WANT IT DAY 1! DEAL WITH IT. I'm saving HUNDREDS of dollars!"

Okay, buddy. Okay, I understand. Just relax. Just relax. Calm down. Take a deep breath and have a glass of water. I just thought you were a rational person. Don't mind me. Have fun. I will just exit... stage left.

I understand you want to bend Microsoft and let them do anything to you but nothing escapes criticism and this is reasonable criticism. Why lie and double dip it's they're a corporation and they ain't your friends.
