Title: Xbox Game Pass
Post by: GamerMan316 on March 01, 2017, 03:26:37 AM
Microsoft Announces Xbox Game Pass - £7.99/$9.99 a Month For 100+ Games

(http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/news/Xbox-Game-Pass_Hero-hero.jpg)

Phil Spencer and Microsoft have announced the Xbox Game Pass - a service that will allow you to play over 100 Xbox One games whenever you like for the meager sum of £7.99/$9.99 a month. Spencer announced the service will 'launch to the wider Xbox community later this Spring'.

In a post on Xbox Wire, Spencer explains that Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games for £7.99/$9.99 per month - think of it like Netflix for gaming, in a way.

The pass will feature content from publishers such as 2K, 505 Games, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, SEGA, SNK Corporation, THQ Nordic, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft Studios.

Spencer also announced that some fan-favorite titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass when it launches include Halo 5: Guardians (!), Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II.

The post also mentions that all Xbox One games in the catalog – and related add-ons – will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount for Xbox Game Pass members. Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, resulting in a constantly-updating library of games (again, similarly to Netflix).

Before the service rolls out to everyone, selected members of the Xbox Insider Program (in the Alpha Preview ring) will be able to test the service. Xbox Live Gold members will also be receiving exclusive access to Xbox Game Pass prior to the program launching to the broader community.

Spencer promises more information in the coming weeks.

I'm guessing interest in this will really depend on someone's gaming habits. Personally, I've got too much in the un-played library to jump into this right off the bat. It's nice for it to have so many publishers on board though. On the flip side- not so sure how the "cycling-in and out" will work though, if it's the games on sale that cycle, that's one thing, if it's the overall available games cycling, it's got the potential to be a pain. Not too keen on how Netflix pulls stuff off its library with little warning at times.

Yeah, not sure about them cycling things in and out.  What if I download something that takes a lot of time and the pull it while I'm still playing.  That would annoy me.  I'll wait and see what games the offer the first month to decide if it is worth it.

Be ok if they did a free months trial so you can check it out. Could be good value if it includes new releases?

The people with early access have a month's trial so hopefully they give everyone the same.

Microsoft has officially announced that all future Microsoft Studios Xbox One exclusive releases will launch as a part of
Xbox Games Pass on release day. There’s no catch. You can play Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2 the
day they release if you subscribe to Xbox Games Pass. Microsoft has confirmed that future games from major franchises
like Halo, Gears of War and Forza will also included.

I redeemed my one month game pass code last night for Sea of Thieves and got an extra month for leaving auto-renew on, nice little bonus. State of Decay 2 is out around the time the two months runs out and i'll have enough Microsoft Rewards points then to get another couple of months so can play all these games without ever paying.   :)

Good work on that! I'm still on the fence about this, especially 'cause I'm still working through the backlog sitting on my shelf and in the external storage. Probably won't help that a few of the games that fit that category are in the 80-100 hour completion time range.

The majority of Xbox One games on the pass I either already own or I've already played so my backlog hasn't grown too much, i'll just play a few of the indie games (like Hue) and then play the big Microsoft releases while i've got the free months, probably just cancel it when I'm done with them then buy a code when Crackdown 3 and Forza Horizon 4 are added.

Been revisiting Mad Max recently. Despite being a bit sparse with some of that open wasteland, it's a damn good game with really satisfying combat.

In June 2017, we launched Xbox Game Pass – with the goal of empowering gamers all over the world to discover their next favorite game. We also wanted to use Xbox Game Pass as a platform for developers to introduce their amazing games to millions of new people. From the beginning, the service was built based on input from gamers and we’re always listening to fan feedback.  Xbox Game Pass offers a curated library of over 100 great games, available to download and play at full fidelity, for one low–monthly price. Since launch, we’ve continued to add more diverse titles to the library, including new games from Xbox Game Studios and ID@Xbox partners the same day they release. 

Your feedback directly contributes to the evolution of Xbox Game Pass – thank you for taking the time to help us continually improve the service. A top request you have shared from day one is to provide an option to get Xbox Game Pass and the most advanced multiplayer network, Xbox Live Gold, in a single membership.

We heard you. Today, we’re excited to announce Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will include all of the benefits of Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass. That means the full Xbox Game Pass library of over 100 high quality games, and Xbox Live Gold online multiplayer, in one convenient membership for $14.99 a month. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, gamers will be able to play together on the most-advanced multiplayer network and discover their next favorite game.

Starting today, we’re inviting a limited number of our Xbox Insider community members to join and test Xbox Game Pass Ultimate before it launches later this year in current Xbox Game Pass markets. 

We look forward to your feedback and to bringing our members even more choice with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate this year and beyond.

£132 a year for this, £146 if you buy Live and Game Pass separately at full price which nobody does anymore, I'll stick with the plethora of Gold deals throughout the year and MS rewards for Game Pass.

Still, the biggest drawbacks of this system are two...IMO.

One - (this one's personal, so may not apply across the board) too many games in the backlog that I can't see burning through to even look at what's in their Game Pass library...

Two - the way things get pulled and pushed off the Game Pass library (while I get that it's a model that Netflix has used) doesn't make it as reliable as it should be. I imagine putting hours upon hours into Fallout 4, only to have it dropped while in the middle of questing through the world. With Netflix it sucks, but it's more manageable, they give you a bit of a warning (if you look for it) and the investment, unless it's a series, is usually a few hours for a movie getting dumped. With gaming it feels a lot less worthwhile. Why play anything that requires any degree of time investment when you've got the fear of having it pulled away right from under you..? If it turns out the answer is just to play shorter games, good luck finding those gems.

If they can sort that second issue...maybe the move to digital only would seem to make more sense. At this point Game Pass seems to be the gateway drug to getting people to stop looking for physical copies of games. Anyway, just IMO currently.   ;)
