        That didn't stop Lies of P.

        Lies of P was on more than just Gamepass at launch though. It was on both xbox's, both Playstations, PC on multiple store fronts. Also Gamepass dropped it's $1 deal ages before Lies of P released. Everyone had the option to buy it. Hi-Fi was on only gamepass and steam for a whole year and was the entire reason they abolished the $1 gamepass deal because it didn't sale.

      They didn't need to buy it. and that's the problem. It was effectively free to play. Which was entirely Microsofts decision.
      Redfall failed because Microsoft forced Arkane austin to continue making it when they exclaimed to microsoft that it's a broken mess and can't and won't end well. While Hi-fi failed because it got zero budget. Zero marketing. Dropped on their games service that was effectively free. Because Microsoft thought it wouldn't make them a dime if they didn't. Then it bit them in the ass.
      These studio's folded because Microsoft themselves fricked themselves over and blames them for it.

          The thing to keep in mind is that when a company puts their game on gamepass, Microsoft compensates for it with a lump sum. The amount they pay out varies by game, but it can be decently generous sum, particularly for any indie developer that manages to snag a Gamepass deal. I'd imagine Lies of P got a pretty decent check out of it. HiFi Rush however was effectively done out of Microsoft's pocket, meaning that they were just giving it out, and thus didn't get many returns.

      I imagine everybody at Tango is just going to jump to Mikami's new studio or Ikumi's new studio. Happy that Mikami is focusing his new studio on what he actually wants to make instead of being forced to redo RE4 yet again.

      I had GamePass for it but before I finished it I bought my friend a Steam copy.

        their plan was to spend billions of dollars putting games on gamepass to attract large numbers of players to their userbase, and use those numbers to convince shareholders to spend money on them because they're growing
        but it failed so they just spent billions for nothing, not many people moved to xbox and most who did were third worlders abusing the $1 per month subscriptions making a different account each month

    The people who cheered for Microsoft acquisitions are fricking moronic Black person homosexuals and should kill themselves immediately.
    There is NO scenario where corporate acquisitions are a positive. There's a reason that whenever a studio gets acquired the talent either flees immediately or not long after - it's a death sentence. It's awful for developers. It's awful for consumers because there's less competition, leading to more anti-consumer practices and less variety. Basically if you ever cheer for acquisitions/mergers because you love the "brand" you are fricking stupid. Do not reproduce, do not drive, do not operate heavy machinery, do not vote. Commit suicide ASAP.
