Good for them but I ain’t gonna lie once that $2 a month for two months is up imma head out.
Well we still don't know the retail numbers of Gears 5. And the player retention is still a huge task. MS made people subscribe for a 2$ deal but we don't know shit about the actual profits. But I guess they are playing the long game right now
Surely that's because it's literally the only game on the service, and not that players might find themselves enjoying the other games it includes and stick with it. Not like that literally is what happened with me with GamePass on an earlier sale or anything.
My point is that it's pretty clear that there is more immediate interest and positive player and critical reception for Gears 5 compared to how Gears 4 was received.
Can agree on that. Started playing yesterday and it's already better than 4 in every way
didnt that promo expired like two months ago?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.
Didnt know that Game Pass only has Xbox games available. I better delete DMC5, Blair Witch etc before the MS ninjas delete my account!
Aye, TOW launching on GP is a huge boon for the service and helps to keep it in the spotlight after G5. They should be advertising TOW as coming soon to GP on the dashboard.
No, even today you can still do it.
Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your remaining Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass for Console or Xbox Game Pass for PC time into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for the same amount of time, up to 36 months. All conversions are final. See xbox.com/gamepass for details.
Game Pass alone already has provided several GOTY-caliber games this year (Outer Wilds, Void Basterds, Creature In The Well, DmC V) and it isn't even fall yet.
Variety in the catalogue is quite important for people to remain signed to these services. Not every game will be huge AAA releases but they are essential nonetheless. My GOTY contender is Outer Wilds and that launched on Game Pass, even though it was a smaller game.Aye, TOW launching on GP is a huge boon for the service and helps to keep it in the spotlight after G5.

This also raises the question of how much Blair Witch cost and if it was worth it? barely seemed to make a dent in terms of attracting folks to GP, feels more like one of those mediocre releases has every so often. It's just there.
This.Sometimes i get the impression, that half of this board thinks, that GP library only includes MS 1st party games.
Alien, Ashen, Batman series, Borderlands 1-2, DMC V, Doom, Hellblade, Hollow Knight, Kingdom Come, Life is Strange, MGS 2,3,5, Metro 2033+LL+Exodus, Shadow of mordor/war, MH World, Ninja Gaiden black, Prey, Tomb Rider series, Shenmue collection, Vampyr, Wolfenstein 1-2 + huge catalog of indie game + all 1st party titles.
It's way to early to say if it is anything close to success. If those people who get it for $3 and then unsub that sounds terrible. We still haven't got any solid subscriber numbers and how many people are actually staying at full price. It's good value but i really doubt MS want to be subsidising gaming in the long term.
LOL I knew someone was going to come in with the subscription service concern trolling. We just need someone else to say "BUT DO THOSE PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY DON'T OWN THE GAME???"
Excuse me for daring to think that a lot of people will sign up for $2 to play Gears and then unsub.
