Can't see who this helps Phil !

It helps Phil in a couple months when they raise the price... and if they are going this far to limit damages it's probably going to be a significant increase.

Shareholders and that's about it. Although if those subscribers using the loophole decide they don't want to pay full price then the subscriber count will drop so the victory may be short-lived as this is a very well known and frequently exploited loophole

I would assume price increases in the coming year.

Spunds like a price hike is coming and they doywant anyone getting it for cheaper.

Makes sense many users piled on at the beginning for very cheap. Cannot imagine that selling Games Pass at a loss helps Microsoft to pay for all the development and not to mention the cost of having to earn back the 70 billion it spent. The free rides are probably going to slow down with most likely a price increase coming in the next year or so especially once they merge more of Activision's content into Games Pass.

I certainly did. Under 100 for 3 years was great 😂

Organized by the Krakow Technology Park, the Digital Dragons Conference once again showed that Poland is attracting more and more attention from the world's biggest industry tycoons for a reason." - Digital Dragons.
