-Gears 6, -BG3 on gamepass (reason to why they won’t put a date) -New acquisition -mid Gen refresh console -new controller -GTA 6 will be on gamepass -Elders scroll 6
GTA 6 launching on Gamepass would be cost ineffective for both Xbox and Rockstar. Big Budget third party don’t launch on Gamepass because they can’t be subsidized.
What would the cost of GT6 on gamepass be ? Over a billion would be the starting point is my guess
Microsoft would likely have to pay a lump sum based on projected sales, plus licensing and engagement fees to Rockstar. Additionally, GTA 6 uses a lot of licensed music, and some employees at Rockstar probably get bonuses based on sale figures.
Going by how many people viewed the news about a trailer it would cost even too much for MS. 2-3 million upfront would be my guess. Or they could simply do every person who downloads the GRA6 from GP Ms will pay them for a fully game sold share (usually console makers keep $10, retailer takes $10 and rest goes to publishers who than spreads it accordingly with bonuses and royalties)
Raft Could we please stop with acquisitions. They can barely manage the talent they have. BG3 wouldn’t surprise me if it ends up on GP but it would cost MS a hefty amount
Dont blame him...all these acquisitions and yet theyve got little to nothing to show for it. Xbox gamers are starving for good console exclusives.
Gimme some of that stuff you're taking...
Sure. It’s the $69 billion activision deal.
Lmao gta 6 won't be on gamepass. Elder scrolls 6 is YEARS away. Don't think BG3 will be announced for gamepass, but it wouldn't shock me.
They can't sell the consoles they are already making , a new refresh of console would be silly. Gta6 on gamepass is not gonna happen unless MS buys rockstar, they have said themselves they won't ever be putting new release games on gamepass because it makes no sense to them financially.
Anything can be on GamePass if it’s paid for. But as you mentioned I don’t think Take 2 would be willing to sell Rockstar or the GTA IP. If a gamepass deal occurs, I’d question if 2k would have a physical release on xbox at that point
Nope, Sony will have marketing rights to GTA 6 plus PC will have to wait 12 months before getting to play.
And tomorrow I'm going to win the lottery. Do you really think they'll be bringing out a new console with all the issues they already have with 2 different power consoles? And if BG3 was out day one I'd agree it could be a gamepass coup as that'd make people more inclined to choose Xbox as a console. But it's been out 4 months, most who were hyped for it have already bought it on PC or PS5. And I'd really doubt Rockstar will be doing Xbox favours with regards to GTA considering the majority of their profit is on the PS side and I doubt we'll see any ES6 footage for at least 2 years.
New games that was never announced with gameplay footage n release date?
how about Gears 2&3 Remaster and Fable II Remaster?
Perfect Dark Gameplay Fable Gameplay Gears announcement Hellblade 2 combat gameplay Those are my top on wish to see. Anything from other recently purchased studios wont feel as great knowing MS just took them away from other platforms forever. What I hope not to see is more acqusitions...
I like your predictions.
Would love to see an announcement regarding all gears of war games on Steam
I just want exclusives that will make me say damn I need to buy an Xbox for this.
Not gonna happen as long as they still launch their games day and date with PC
Gears 6 please
GTA6 on GP? 😂 Glad you didn’t say - Tears of the Kingdom: Enhanced Edition on GP as well.
I see several people thinking MS is going to come out and announce Baldur's Gate 3 is now available on Xbox and it's on Gamepass. That would be a pretty baller move that would make up for the delay, especially if it wins GOTY later that night.
Being that Xbox gamers don’t buy many games and Larian has already had several months to cash in their pc and ps5 sales, a gamepass release is not out of the question. Of course this would be Microsoft simply buying their way to success yet again by taking huge loses on GP.
Microsoft buying their way to success? Say it ain't so!
Also good luck to Larian selling their next game at full RRP if they do this.
Might be in the minority, but they really need to do a gears collection that's available on PC. I don't mind 4 & 5, they're good games on their own merit, but that original trilogy is unmatched by very few 3rd person shooters even today. Marcus fenix collection with remastered visuals would be fucking epic. Please Phil 😂
