Thanks for injecting some common sense into this site.

As much as I like Gamepass the model just doesn’t make sense unless they stop putting as much money into video games. None of these ducks are able to refute that either, so they’ll just post irrelevant a*s sh*t in this thread

Microsoft will eventually raise the price to like 20 bucks a month, still gonna be worth it.

If they can get it to 50 million users at 20 bucks a month, it'll easily be sustainable, there's no way a billion a month coming in won't be enough to sustain GP.

The key to MS's strategy is MS isn't trying to force people into a console either...Sony is looking at it as a userbase of only console owners

Sony doesn't have the technological infrastructure that Microsoft has neither...They'd have to outsource a lot of sh*t to get a gamepass equivalent off the ground

MS just took their Azure sh*t and repurposed it basically

Me personally I’m over the hyper-realism graphics of games and that contributes so much to development costs since it takes longer to render design etc I’m glad we’ve reached that point but every game doesn’t need to look like real life and I think it would help studios a lot if they backed away from that a little bit and decrease the size as well and focus on a better game over a bigger game

Understand distribution fam.

This is a land grab and Microsoft has the resources to subsidize this sh*t. Big bank take little bank.

Do y’all notice how Lyft & Uber rides now costs double what they did a few years ago?

These companies offer services at prices so low that you lock in and get used to it. Once they know you NEED their sh*t like you need ur blunt after work, they run the prices up and ain’t sh*t you can do about it because it’s a part of your life now. Game. Set. Match.

truth is, there is only a finite amount of game diversity before you realize you've played the same game 6 times already.

rpg: same quests, different coat of paint
shooter: literally the same game, different coat of pixels
f*ghters: you can see where im going with this

so companies try to use realism as a different coat of paint to preserve interest in games( hence why retro games are always brought up as pinnacle of gaming, since most ideas were 2-3 iterations in)

Well when you're just limited to consoles then yes this statement is true. But when you can reach billions more across iOS and Android then this statement doesn't hold weight.

I have Ultimate so I have it for my Series X, PC, and phone. I'm just speak8ng in terms of the average consumer that looks for value and convenience more than anything.

Paying 9.99 to stream games from my PC or console to my phone via Xcloud game streaming. Free games at that, if I choose to. Pls tell me how this is a bad thing

Save the 50mil you paid to make each blade of grass move independently. Why should I care they cant make money putting out the same game with fresh graphics and your sh*ts buggy as fu*k on release? Man fu*k them.

Like do we need new game engines or what? Or folks just cant think outside of the box?

All I want is a goat level boxing or mma game and a battle royale game that gives Warzone a run for the money.
