True, but unless someone really cares about corporate crap then as a video gamer Xbox Game Pass is hands down the most amazing thing to happen for gamers this generation and going into next generation IMO. Let the trillion dollar company worry about their models and such, but I will be playing Gears 5 and then Outer Worlds on Game Pass next month :)
This was a well deserved launch and a big stage setter for Halo Infinite at Scarlett launch that will just be mind blowing in terms of first week player numbers on both Xbox and PC.Congrats !!
Though comparing player data for games pre-GamePass with them post-Gamepass isnt really fair.
When you change up the metric of success within a generation it makes these comparison a bit useless.....every big game will have a bigger player stats compared to what we had prior GamePass and the games being multiplattform.
It makes things easier for the PR team though :-)
We can at least use Gears 5 as the standard for upcoming big releases and compare the PR speech around other releases - though i doubt MS will make it easy to really compare the numbers of these launches.
Lol. Halo Infinite will easily surpass this and seeing TC already putting out a number of job openings for their next project is definitely a good sign. Keep pumping put those AAA titles. :)
Lol. GP has continued to grow and improve...There is currently nothing that comes close to the quality of Game Pass.
The answer is almost always childish console wars when it comes to exclusives. Sales threads are filled with that type of stuff, and its obvious.
I completely agree - im happy for MS and that they way they adapted to new market realities seems to be working.
Probably even less, people are still using 14-days trials from last year.
They hired Randy to do the magic
"biggest launch" a long time ago meant means people who bough the game, whenever it is to play instantly or to resell 15 years later still sealed in box.
