Phil Spencer really bait and switched Xbox fans. Lol

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

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

Einhander19722d ago (Edited 2d 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.

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.

VersusDMC2d 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.

darthv722d ago (Edited 2d 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.

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

I've always thought since a kid when playing mariorpg that a sonic one would be pretty cool as well. Please make this happen.
