I'm actually surprised by this, I feel like it came and went very quickly without too much interest

but good to see!

dumahim660d ago

Well, it was relatively short and no True Vault Hunter mode to replay the campaign. The DLC was horribly short, lame and overpriced, which didn't help.

Sgt_Slaughter660d ago

Probably had a significantly smaller budget, so it was able to smash lower targets while not being immensely popular.

I wonder how Borderlands 3 did overall as well. I've seen that game for under $15 multiple times (and in multiple clearance racks for $5).

franwex661d ago

I too am surprised at how well this sold.

gold_drake661d ago

im surprised, bit damn was it a good game.

A sequel will need a lot of work. They didn't lean nearly enough into the fantasy elements, which left the combat feeling like Borderlands rather than a new franchise. The end game is trash, there's no new game plus, no proper DLC/expansions, etc. The drop rates for loot were god awful.

It had a lot of great ideas but in terms of gameplay it felt way too safe, like Gearbox was too scared to stray too far from Borderlands.

Profchaos661d ago

I legit thought it was intended to be dlc at first for b3 which kind of explains why it didn't

dumahim660d ago

Yeah, fuck those drop rates. Trying to farm for something specific was futile. Especially for the armor. Need to match 2 classes instead of 1, and then there's the whole Ascended, Primordial, etc thing that made it even harder. Add another class into it later lowered the chances even further. They really needed to tailor drops so you had a better chance of getting your own classes drops.

This is why I stopped playing. I'd spend an hour or two every day farming, filling my inventory, loading up loot bunnies with crystals, and consistently get nothing to show for it after a month of trying to get an upgrade for one piece of gear.

Phil Spencer really bait and switched Xbox fans. Lol

Alexious1d 20h ago

I mean, they couldn't possibly add all this stuff and keep the price the same

Tankbusta401d 19h ago

Its the way of all subscription services...the initial offering is an extremely good value because they are after capturing market share.. once any company gets enough people and ingrains their service into their subscribers they always increase prices

Einhander19721d 19h ago (Edited 1d 19h ago )

They could have not bought all these publishers and still got the games.

Then not had to close 4 studios fire 5000 people from their gaming division or had to raise the price because they spent 70 bn for CoD.

How much does the price of game pass need to increase to cover all this development. Is it even possible to get the price high enough to cover the costs before it's unappealing to consumers anymore?

How many more studio closures and price increases need to happen before game pass becomes profitable or even breaks even?

"How many more studio closures and price increases need to happen before game pass becomes profitable or even breaks even?"

Gamepass subscribers aren´t worried about that. That´s a MS concern.

Let them worry about their money. As long as we continue to get our day one games I couldn´t give a damn.

Already paid for my two year Ultimate subscription plan before the new prices, so I´m good. :)

Closing Arkane and Tango affected everyone who enjoyed their games, all the people who have lost their jobs were affected. I don't think many game pass subscribers are happy with how Microsoft handled those concerns.

You're not getting any more day one games from those studios and whatever studios get cut in the next round.

And the reaction shows that most game pass subscribers would disagree with you.

You better hope Microsoft doesn't have any more "changes" planned for the next two years...

Xbox fans knew what they were getting. If you got the $1 uograde price for 3 years or Game Pass Ultimate, you probably got your money’s worth.

darthv722d ago

Im not a fan of price increases... but I dont mind paying more so long as nothing is taken away at the same time. I've had my share of subscriptions where the prices went up but they also removed some features. Those situations are what really grinds my gears.

VersusDMC1d 19h ago

So gamepass console that included day one games at 10$ a month being replaced with Gamepass standard at 15$ a month with included core but no more day ones must really grind your gears.

darthv721d 19h ago (Edited 1d 19h ago )

It probably would... if I wasn't already an Ultimate user. As such Ultimate is still Ultimate. Nothing has been removed, so the couple extra $ don't really bother me.

Hofstaderman1d 19h ago

Bet you by the end of next year its $30. Bookmark this.
