Good read, nice job. In your other article you mentioned why you think Xbox Live Gold will remove the paywall. I think it's a good idea but I have trouble grasping how they would do that in practice. How would you see that going down?I'm not gonna copy and paste this thing that i wrote but here's my last big prediction for next gen (though it is stuff that I've been saying here...lol):
The simplest thing would be to just get rid of Xbox Live Gold entirely and convert existing subscriptions over into GamePass subscriptions? Or maybe convert them into credit? This is tricky as they are sold at retailers and often go on sale.
Would Xbox Live Gold still be a thing without the multiplayer component?
Would they just merge the subscriptions into a single GamePass subscription?
Would they stop giving free games per month?
