Lots of old FIFA games leaving just as FIFA 21 arrives. I assume the old ones stay in for ultimate subscribers via EA Play - if anyone cares.

Alan Wake leaving is kinda bizarre - don’t Microsoft own the rights + were the publisher?

thecodingart148d ago

They were the publisher, but lost the rights a few years ago (this is why Control which is multiplat was able to reference it directly)

Orchard148d ago

Interesting. You’d think as the publisher they would be able to keep it in game pass though.

They sold the rights to Remedy awhile back.

Sciurus_vulgaris148d ago

Microsoft never owned the Alan Wake IP, they only had publishing rights. MS sold back the publishing rights of Alan Wake to Remedy.

Magog148d ago

This is why I prefer Playstation Plus. Over 650 games and I never lose access to them.

King_Noctis148d ago

How many of those games are either new games or games that actually worth your time?

Magog148d ago

Playstation Plus has been offering brand new games every month for PS5 since it launched. Lots of other worthwhile games too. Far more than Gamepass.

AmUnRa148d ago

Same problem with XboxGamepass.

jznrpg148d ago

How many GamePass are new or worth playing ?

KingofBandits147d ago

A lot of the games in there are worth peoples time. Game Pass has more games and some that are day 1 releases yes however, the fact that games leave the service should fully point out that all digital games especially these are just extended rentals you don't own.

King_Noctis147d ago

“ How many GamePass are new or worth playing ?”

MLB The Show? Outriders? MS Flight Simulator? Those are day one on Gamepass. If not, then Star Wars Fallen Order? Star Wars Squadron? Forza Horizon 4? Gears 5? Those are just some examples.

Playstation Plus is not the equivalent of gamepass. Do you lose your xbox live free games with gold too?

Jericho1337148d ago

650 games? More like 3-4 games a month.

I’d seriously recommend Alan Wake to anyone who hasn’t played it yet. Still holds up as a great narrative action game.

Magog148d ago

Which has added up over time to 670ish games so far.

Jericho1337148d ago

‘Over time’ so not really the same then is it. I see your point though.

traumadisaster148d ago

If you haven’t played it yet then pc 4k60 would be the best option, that games blacks and shadows on an oled has to be witnessed

Chevalier148d ago

"Over Time"

Doesn't Gamepass grow its library 'Over time?! Last I checked they did.

Jericho1337148d ago

Yes but you’ve got 300 off games available NOW, they’re not drip fed to you.

Both services have their merits though, no doubt about that.

No offense, but a vast majority of those games are complete shovelware. It's like going to a used game store looking to buy Wii games.

Zeref148d ago (Edited 148d ago )

Unless you don't have Playstation Plus anymore...

Are you really arguing that PSPlus is better than Game Pass? 🤣

You Sony fanboys are getting really desperate

DJStotty146d ago

@Magog

Wait, so if i subscribe to PS+ today, i have access to over 650+ games? Wow where do i sign?

Damn.
Going to have to hurry up on FFIX. Started it a while ago, but have been sleeping on it. Still have the original Playstation version, but doesn't look nearly as good.

JustTheFax148d ago

As far as I can tell, as long as it is installed, you can keep playing it even after they pull it from game pass.
