Major Nelson: At Inside Xbox live from gamescom 2019, we detailed new titles joining Xbox Game Pass this month and updates to the new Xbox (Beta) app for PC
WOW DMC V is on Xbox GamePass!! There's no denying how amazing Xbox GamePass is. They consistently add amazing games!
Yep great upcoming lineup! Then you also have The Outer Worlds and Gears 5 as well.
I forgot The Outer Worlds and Gears 5 were also launching on Xbox GamePass! So many Games to play!!!!
Then in 2020 you have Wasteland 3, Ori 2, Battletoads, Halo Infinite, Forza 8, Pyschonauts 2, Microsoft Flight Simulator all launching on GamePass as well.
Game Pass is a hit! Studio acquisition behind a wall is a miss. Another reason not to go Sony.
PS NOW needs to step up their game ASAP! With Gamepass, Xbox doesn´t even need XCloud to destroy Stadia! Great job Xbox Team!
GamePass is nothing like Stadia so I'm not sure what the comparison was supposed to be?
Sure Sony is worried that they are selling more hardware and software on daily, weekly, monthly and yearly bases than ms/Xbox Sony will never put their exclusives on gamepass or psn now day one because their exclusives are great but in case of ms they make mostly AA games so why not That comment is just for you On topic This is great for those who like digital media. I know I am in the minority)(40-45%) but I like to own my games You can't deny the fact ms have made great strides with gamepass buy sooner or later they can't give this away for $1 when they have to pay all the 3rd parties. Right now it's a great deal but moving forward either they will have to eat the cost and take a loss in hopes of bigger returns in future or raise the cost next Gen
Ps now does not need to do anything because its not sonys main lifeline like GamePass is for xbox one. We get a constant flow of exclusives that you cant play on pc or any console, its the reason sony 60 million console sold lead on xbox. Ps now like 3rd parties is filler for us playstation owners. I cant wait for death stranding, ff7 remake, concrete genie, MLB 20The show, last of us 2, ghost of tsushima and so on. SO enjoy your pity 3rd party filler games and and single A indie games. There's still nothing worth getting an xboxone.
@TheHateTheyGive I too will enjoy Death Stranding and FF7 remake.........but on PC. You think those two games are staying Sony exclusives?
Of course you use this as an opportunity to knock PlayStation.... Will you ever grow up do you think?
Sorry to hijack @TheHateTheyGive "We get a constant flow of exclusives that you cant play on pc or any console," As far as I can tell the only PS4 exclusive that came out in the since Spiderman, was Days Gone.
Disappointed that DMC V is only going to Xbox GamePass and not PC. Bummer. The other offerings aren't bad though, can't wait to play them!
True. Getting DMC5 is insane. This announcement reminded me that they really need to put Ape Out on XB1 and PS4 though. :(
I just recently upgraded my Game Pass to Ultimate all the way to March 2022. DMC5 is just one of the reasons why Game Pass is so worth it. I must say, this will force me to get a Scarlett at launch.
Just curious how did you upgrade your Game Pass to Ultimate all the way until March 2022? I'd like to do the same.
Basically if you have X months of GamePass Y months of LiveGold Then you buy this $1 Ultimate Gamepass deal and it will add up X + Y and convert those to Ultimate Gamepass. So you could buy 3 years of Gold. Then buy this $1 deal and you will now have 37 months Ultimate. https://slickdeals.net/shar...
Mine is until 2021 August, lots of good times ahead of us !
Huh looks like everyone down voting those people saying the capcom payment was for DMC 5 on gamepass were wrong.
GamePass is awesome, I don't care how Xbox continues to get these AAA games, as long as they keep getting them. I'm a happy customer.
That'll be the 19m dollars Capcom received for 'Digital services' - quite a lot for allowing DMC V on gamepass, especially as the game's sales will have started to go down.
There's a lot of Capcom games that go to gamepass. That payment probably also included stuff like Dead Rising 4 too.
It's still recent and these 3rd party publishers will want ms and Sony to take care of them if they want their games early on their services
I highly doubt MS paid 19million just to have DMCV on GamePass...
You have to remember who you're talking about. This isn't Sony or Nintendo. Microsoft has some MAJOR DEEP POCKETS
lol you guys have no sense of financials. There's no way they paid 19million for this. Are you one of those people that said Ninja got almost 1 billion from Microsoft to join Mixer? 😂 This game is way past it's stride in sales. Most people who were gonna buy it already bought it. I'm guessing they got at most 5 million for this. There is no way they could have made that much at this point without Game Pass.
No, I imagine the streamer got about 100m if Mixer were going to base it on what they 'predict' he would have made on Twitch based on his last year's earnings (before he lost a tonne of paying subs) Regarding my comment about the 19m being used on this, I meant the games this quarter as people were saying MS had paid for an exclusive or the marketing rights to a game only coming to Xbox and Pc - but it clearly wasn't. It was the down payment so games like this and DR4 could hit GamesPass. It's why games are only on the service for X amount of months, they are pre-paid for a set period as the publisher/dev would get almost nothing in terms of the revenue share of one dollar subscriptions. Also, your last statement - are you saying there's no way the game could make 5m at this point? if so, I agree, the game has been out a while now. However, considering it sold over 2m copies in its first two weeks, it was a sucessful game in the series so could easily push a high price for inclusion on the service.
Fair enough, If they did pay 19m it probably includes this, DR4, Monster Hunter(to keep it) and Resident Evil 2 remake(which i'm fully expecting now)
Best service in gaming history
I agreed. There is nothing remotely close to it on the gaming market as the value, variety and quality are serious AAA stuff. I seriously hope Sony and Nintendo will do their own versions of Game Pass by next gen. As of right now, Xbox Game Pass is making me looking at Scarlett as my first next gen console to purchase since my GP Ultimate runs till March 2022.
True can't deny the value
Agreed, def the best service in gaming history.
Damn, that is QUITE an addition. A lot of those games I've had my eye on. Gamepass is godly.
DMC V, I already have. Kingdom Come however, makes it totally worth it for me this time around
Is that image half way down the article the new xbox dashboard? If so, it looks gorgeous. Hopefully the update improves how damn slow all the menus are currently.
That's the new Xbox App for PC. Its currently in beta at the moment.
This is an insane deal and it is exactly why I think there is no way they will maintain Gamepass for such a low price. It can't be profitable.
They can't and they won't The cost of development is going up and up so it will cots millions to both Sony and ms of they want 3rd party games on their services soon after launch Right now ms trying to establish and get subscribers but you can't deny the value right now
Millions of people are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass
Doesn't mean it is profitable.
It's not profitable right now but you gotta invest to get people to subscribe to your service. They are looking at the long run. And the long run is looking pretty good for them right now. Game Pass is literally the shining beacon of Xbox right now and a lot of people are taking notice. I remember people made fun of it, when it first launched and constantly had to be defended. But with additions like this, you got to be an idiot to still think it's not a great deal.
I understand and agree, but that goes with my argument that the price will increase. They're taking a loss right now to build it up. Eventually they will raise the price. They simply can't give away every first party game they develop for free and also many other titles from third party. The price will go up.
They don't need to raise the price if they got enough subscribers. If they got a million subscribers paying 120 dollars every year thats 120 million each year. That's More than enough to cover costs of licensing in the long run. Last year November ,phil announced that there were "millions" of subscribers of gamepass and that was before the $1 Ultimate deal. Millions is plural so it had to be at the very least at 2 million subscribers. I assume it's way past 3 million by now. Gamepass got a lot of good press this year. Much more than the previous year. https://www.windowscentral....
The more subscribers they have the bigger the licensing fees they will have to pay. For example they just paid Capcom $19 million when they have a few million subscribers. Let's say they get to 10 or 15 million. Capcom would want more than $19 million. You only need to look at every other streaming service... Netflix/Hulu/Amazon for proof. More content = raise prices.
That's not how it works lol
Can you imagine next gen when all our Xbox Game studios will be dropping their games day 1 into Game Pass and also the 3rd party titles? All we have to do is go by a Xbox Scarlett and come home to nearly 1000 games ready to be played. Game Pass has gotten so good we are now getting new games weekly and the quality just keeps getting better. Xbox4Life
Wow, Kribwalker was right... https://n4g.com/news/228567... This is good news because I rented DMC 5 from Gamefly but returned it and never finished it. But now I can come back to it and finish the game. Viva la Game Pass!
Ooh. Stelaris I've been meaning to check out. Glad I can now.
Excellent. Was holding on for DMC5 to go on sale. Didn't think it would get to game pass anytime soon. I see it is on today! I know what I am doing the rest of this month!
It was on sale a month or 2 ago, I got it for £22.49 in June. But I only started playing about a week ago, should have waited.
Yup, I saw it, and saw the orbs add-on sales recently. was looking for greater then 50% off though. I am in Canada and the best i have seen is 20% off.
Wow I was gonna play Fallout 3 remastered tonight but looks like I might dive in the best console version of Devil May Cry 5!!!
Check out my disagrees 😂 dont get mad go stream Playstation Now in sub 720p lag fest mode.You might see dmc 1 ps2 version for nostalgia heck stream a Psone game because we all know that Ps4 is the first Playstation in the history of Playstation to not be able to run original Playstation disc 😝
Oh my. Kingdom come! Dmc 5, too? This is getting nice!
