Bethesda Game Studios' Todd Howard confirms both Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 will launch day one on Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass.
2021 onwards is going to be big for all gamers.
Good gravy Xbox... That's gonna get a lot of people using gamepass.
Oh for sure. Most will Sub in for the first time. Play and finish the game, and then sub straight out. It will make you feel like a thief lol. Millions and millions of people will do just that.
And you get people talking about subscribing for 2 months and cancelling. Psst. People played Skyrim for hundreds of hours and still play. They'll subscribe and 8 months later will still be there.
" People played Skyrim for hundreds of hours and still play. They'll subscribe and 8 months later will still be there." Nope. Subscribe for a month. If it looks like it is a game for keeping for the long term then buy it outright. But most games are not going to have the content of ES. Look at The Outer Worlds. Paid $5 and completed that entire game in less than a month. If some want to stay continually subscribed to a service that they only use part of the time then they are free to waste their money. Now if MS offers enough content to warrant that subscription then great but let's not pretend we get an Elder Scrolls game every year.
2022 seems more likely.
Thats great news. Gamepass is the gift that keeps on giving. Best ever situation for my gaming needs.
It is funny on the disagrees. You are stating your opinion for your personal situation yet no one knows your personal situation and disagrees. LOL.
Its because those that disagree hate that they don't have an option even near as good.
That's how the fanboys roll.
Its because if you say anything good about Microsoft around here you get the downvotes. For whatever reason Sony can do no wrong and Microsoft does no right on this site.
You know this site is cancerous when a comment like this gets voted down. People really just want to see Xbox fail. Kinda pathetic
id love for Xbox to thrive, but I dont want Gamepass to get big. It devalues games and its a race to the bottom.
That's the truth, it can be a site with real crappy people at times disliking and pulling things down because they dont support it, dont agree with it or the best one just dont own it. I mean you can own one thing and still agree on what you dont own, articles, comments and so on you wont be seen as weak you know.
@Chriswheeler22 Please sight facts on how GamePass has "Devalued games" and created a race to the bottom. If you compare Gamepass games at the start with now, the quality of games available has continually improved. Also, Developers have continually praised what GamePass has meant to them financially. There is not a single news article or fact to back up this claim.
Why dont gamers actually buy and support games? Simce when were gamers cheap skates
Just because we can use gamepass doesn’t mean we don’t buy games too. In fact, Microsoft has said that gamepass members buy more games than people who don’t have it
Even as a gamepass subscriber, you are still supporting games, more than a "one-off" purchase from the pre-owned section.
I'm a Sony fan and I agree. It's great for me too because I have a gaming PC. I can play any of their massive AAA games for the cost of a 1 month sub. Unsub straight after I finish the game. Gamepass is great.
Or use the rewards program and just keep getting game pass for free
I know right, this make my choice of never buy an Xbox much more easy. Just PS, PC and Nintendo is all my games needs is completed.
Sweet cant wait for both games to arrive good times my friends
Quality games should be bought and not rented. For those type of games in my opinion it doesnt make any sense. Lets see how much time Microsoft can put games that cost hundreds of millions to make from 22 studios on gamepass day one. I think it would much smarter from Microsoft to put them only after 6 months+.
Sure it might change in the future. As it is now through the value proposition of GP is very good.
You're highly inflating the typical development budget. "Hundreds of millions" Perhaps a Bethesda/Rockstar release, but few other than that even cross the 100 million mark. Gamepass, as is, is a multi-billion dollar service, and is only going to grow with this generation. Trust me, Microsoft will be fine.
Dude any Triple AAA game cost hundreds of millions plus marketing. smaller games dont. How much do you think halo will cost? Because the 500 million mark already went by.... Of course a state of decay double aa doesnt. Sea of thieves hundreds of millions. Right now gamepass isnt multi billion service it doenst have enough subscribers. Maybe in the future. Microsoft is going all in with that. Lets wait and see. I believe they will increase the price and end all the free 1 buck or 5 bucks subscriptions.
@waverider Duuuude You're wrong lol. Literally on everything.
General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg candidly admitted that in the short term Xbox Game Pass is indeed not that profitable for Microsoft.
@ozzy When you look at the amount of people, even now, sunscribed, that's on obvious lie.
