I love Gears 5 a lot, as well as Game Pass, so I find this great news. Good on Microsoft and The Coalition, and here's hoping they can properly capitalize on this momentum.
I think it will be far lower in terms of lifetime sales than the older ones, but also that that is a metric Microsoft is no longer going to lose any sleep over.
This is the Netflix syndrome. Stranger Things or Orange is the New Black makes people sign up; a lot of people cancel once they are done with that, but many stick around because of the surrounding library.
Peeps gotta always go for the negative.
Yeah, the thing that makes me curious is that the same argument was used for SOD2, Sea of Thieves and FH4, and yet, all of those sold really well. That's why i'm curious.
I'm aware of that. I'm just curious.
I don't pretend to judge anything. The game's already a success. I'm just curious.
They sold well in launch month, but I daresay their lifetime sales are depressed relative to their immediate predecessors/what they would have been had there been no Game Pass.
FH4 has been consistently on a lot of charts, especially in UK, since it's release. I don't think that game suffered.
This is the case for me. I paid for 24 months of Gold for €85 and 2 months of Ultimate for €2, making it around €3.30 a month. I'm PC only and the full price of the service would be €10 per month.A lot of people are signing up because of the $1-$2 1 month deals for ultimate not to mention that you can use those deals to one-time upgrade your entire Gold Membership to Ultimate. Many people are buying 3 years of Gold and converting it to Ultimate.
Praise for getting people to do it but it's far too early to commend it for competitive pricing, at least when you're just looking at sticker price. I doubt as many people would be buying if they had to pay full Ultimate monthly pricing.
