Xbox Game Pass members! It’s time to wake from hibernation and save the future with two incredible sci-fi shooters making their way to Xbox Game Pass today.
Game Pass is swinging for the fences this month.
You can buy doom for $10 half the time, and rage... I expect more for something with a monthly fee.
You did get more. They started at the start of the month. These are extra titles on top of what usually gets put into GP...
Puts into perspective how great gamepass is. I could spend $10 and get a game like doom which I’ll beat, enjoy and never play through again. OR for that same $10 I can get the exact same experience of beating and enjoying doom. + access to over 100 other games for the month which include other great shooters like halo if shooters are my thing. I know how I’d spend the $10....
Ok, go and buy Doom for $10 and enjoy it, I on the other hand will spend £8 and play: Doom Hitman F1 2015 Human Fall Flat Sea of Thieves State of Decay 2 Dirt 4 Warhammer Vermintide 2 So on and so on etc. See where people who like and subscribe to Games Pass are coming from?
thats $10/month guys, plus you still have to play to pay online. I expect more, this shouldnt offend anyone. I feel like im talking to paid posters, most of the games on game pass have very little value.
@kevnb why are you salty, this doesn't even affect you since you don't own an Xbox
@lxeasy Salty? I'm simply stating facts, the other posts look strangely like AstroTurfing. EAs service is actually much better than this one since it is priced so much lower.
Who the F do you think you are? LOL! This is added value no one can't pass up, even just for a month.
@ULTp0ltergeist really? For $10/month this rental service doesn't provide great value since the selection is honestly mostly pretty crappy and the good games are very cheap. $120/year and only a handful of worthwhile games... EAs service has just as many good games (arguably more) and is $30 a year...
I guess these folks don't like actually owning games.
@bluefox755 its not even just that, compare this to gamefly where you can actually play the games you want for just a little more a month.
People, we should all listen to kevnb. He's trying to make a point. Can't you see we shouldn't spend the money the way we want to but the way he wants us to. Come on, get with it
Sorry for having an opinion denawayne... why are you even here if you can’t handle someone having a different view? It seems the paid posters are back too, you can tell because they all sound like the work for Microsoft pr.
You expect more? Do you mean like 150+games including Halo 5, Gears 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Hitman, Fallout 4, Metal Gear, Rocket League, Elder Scrolls Online, Warhammer Vermintide 2, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves, PES 2018, Sunset Overdrive and The Division? Then you are in luck sir.
You just listed the only games with any worth, most of them quite cheap to just buy. We are talking $5-$10 games mostly, and those are the high lights.
@kevn you do know that multiplayer is optional right? Only game where I can see it being somewhat mandatory is sea of thieves but even then if you chose not to pay to play online you could still sail the open seas by yourself and fight against skeleton bots. It's still just $10 a month if you never pay for xbl. I don't play online on the ps4 because i dont subscribe to PS+ and I can still play all my games just fine (sans multiplayer, but then I dont buy multiplayer only games on ps4). there is value in these extra services but everyone has their own spin on what value means to them.
No I mentioned the big names off the top of my head. There are also games like Oxenfree which was under my radar until I saw it on GP and finished it in one sitting because it was that brilliant. Also ABZU, Darksiders, DmC, Metro Redux, ReCore, RiME, Ryse, Terraria and now DOOM. Then there's Forza Horizon 4 coming in less than 2 months. But I could list all the games in existence and you'd still take an adversarial position against Game Pass simply because it's not on your console of choice. Also you keep saying it's $10 a month neglecting the fact that you can get it cheaper/free online plus you don't have to keep paying for it once you've played all the games that appeal to you. And all the games i mentioned except The Division and ESO can be played offline, no Gold required so I'm not sure why you feel the need to mention multiplayer.
Were you trying to prove a point lol you made yourself look dumb.
Also let's test this mostly $5 - $10 theory of yours. Halo 5 - $19.99 Gears 4 - $39.99 Fallout 4 - 29.99 Hitman - 59.99 DOOM - 14.99 Sea of Thieves - $38.99 These are the Marketplace listed prices. Now I'm sure you can get them cheaper pre-owned but your $5 estimation is grossly inaccurate.
Thats 10$ for 1 game, vs less than 10 for 100 Games a month. Whether or not its each month is moot. Also, Live is 60 bucks for 12 months. You arent paying monthly unless you do 9.99. But unless you only want to buy that 1 10$ game a year. Then i really dont see how its a bad deal.
Rage is there to help promote rage 2
I would expect more as well. But the thing is, MS had already given us alot for Gamepass. And more coming as well such as Forza 4, Halo, Gear, Playground’s RPG... If that is not a great service then I don’t know what is.
Maybe kevnb should play rage to let off some of his rage
Do you ever get tired of complaining all of the time? It seems like it must be exhausting.
Agree, rage is like £2 in a used game shop over here in the UK and about £8 from cex used for doom
Xbox gamepass is simply amazing! Now we got Doom and Rage! I'm not even done with Hitman which we just got! they are spoiling us!
@kevnb I like how you can speak for everyone apparently? If you think the game pass line up is pretty crappy then you probably don't play video games.
Their bethesda partnership is solid and a huge boost to gamepass
Hitman, now this ? nice !
Xbox Gamepass is the best having service on the market right now without a doubt.
I agree althought I am pure PS fan, but I must say and admit, Xbox Game Pass is offering a lot and its the best in the industry yet.
Same big ps fan I own both though I might buy new titles for my Ps I spend heaps of time on older or exclusive games on gamepass
dope. Doom looks and runs awesome on the One X btw. Usually liquid smooth and the sharpest version on console.
I agree and Hitman is also the sharpest version on console.
Hopefully game pass brings Doom's multiplayer back to life because I just picked up the game a few days ago and it's dead.
Did not play either. Will dl both. Gamepass rules.
Game pass is doing really well
It might even put numbers in doom multiplayer
I finally redeemed my one month free game pass code from when I got the One X, but I don’t see Doom on it
It may take some time for it to appear in all regions.
gamepass has already proven to be a big factor in microsoft's games division revenue. that's not even counting the many times they offer it for $1... i tend to get it for $3 regularly through outside sources...for a casual gamer like myself, gamepass is a godsend.
Too many games not enough time
love gamepass. I'm currently playing through kotor again. jumpimg into sod2 and horizon 4 is just around the corner. I hope we get a release date on ashen soon as that's also going to gamepass and looks awesome
