Another Stealth Drop on Gamepass!

Let´s kill some Zombies!

Instead of helping the developers and publishers recuperate development and marketing costs by buying the games you are interested in so that they can keep creating new games in the future, you place the burden on PS and PC gamers (who actually buy games) to fund the game development.

That is Game Pass in a nutshell.

Ok, so what's Sony doing with their Extra and Premium subscription then?

Lightning772d ago

Valve gave this game away for free last week. You need to go after them?

You realize MS pays the devs to get the game on GP right?

Kornholic1d 22h ago

Sony is offering a service where games that are past their self life can generate more income. That's not Sony's main strategy for games and gamers.

Game Pass is for many developers/publishers the only CHANCE to even make SOME money on Xbox platform. Xbox's main strategy is Game Pass, and Xbox gamers don't buy games the same way PS and PC players do, and that is not sustainable.

Not on PC Game Pass, for some reason?

bunt-custardly2d ago

Yeh, I checked that (sad face). Only option for PC gamers with Ultimate is to cloud stream.

Gamingsince19812d ago

It's on torent sites though so if you want it free like most xbox users just get it there

Asplundh2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Free? Pretty sure I pay a monthly subscription to access the games.

Snookies122d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Nah, I'm good on that man. I used to torrent games when I was younger, not anymore though. Not trying to get my $2000 PC infected with malware. Plus, I've got a decent job so I can afford to buy my games/subscriptions.

InUrFoxHole2d ago

That's crappy. Should be on both

Christopher2d ago

LIcensing to include PC is much more expensive than just console. Especially for a non-GaaS game.

Profchaos2d ago

But they want to grow gamepass on PC so really they should still try and license both it's not uncommon however e.g. red dead redemption 2, GTA v both came to console gamepass and xcloud but not PC.

Christopher1d 2h ago

Both of the games you listed are very heavy on GaaS/seasonal MTX.

30 clicks to see 30 games, with only half a paragraph worth of information for a game judging by the first on the list. No thanks.
