Xbox Game Pass Failed Venture

>https://www.pcgamer.com/games/roguelike/the-gold-rush-is-over-slay-the-spire-and-darkest-dungeon-devs-say-that-big-game-pass-and-epic-exclusive-deals-have-dried-up-for-indie-devs/
>"I talked to at least five small teams, like 35 [members] and under, during GDC, and they're like: Cuts, cuts, cuts, funding canceled, talks that were going on for a year, canceled," said Casey Yano, the co-founder of Slay the Spire studio Mega Crit
>"The Gold Rush is over. I come from the Northwest Territories. The town I'm from was built on gold, and then they found diamonds further north. Maybe another paradigm shift is waiting for us, but I definitely think the scale of the deals I'm hearing about is significantly diminished”

holy shit, Series X/Sisters and fellow PC Gamepass Sissys…this does NOT sound good, what about my free fricking games?

      lel I love the armchair business morons on this board who think they understand anything.

      Firstly, most people don't use their subscriptions fully. People have lives, so distributing that money per playtime isn't hard. Secondly, every game has a different deal with Microsoft, it's not equal playtime for equal money.
      Thirdly, people have been saying gamepass is "dead" for 6 years now. Nothing but cope from console warring morons.

            It's on both PC and mobile, the largest platforms. I think it's a misread of the market, especially as games get longer and longer. Casuals would rather pay $70 for some 100 hour game they'll play over 2 or 3 months than pay monthly to play random games. It's weird because casuals only play a few games a year now other than their default live service or mobile game of choice.

        goy pass isn't as popular as you think

        He never said that. For GamePass to sustain itself they need enough people to offset the millions that Microsoft spends on getting games on there. Thanks to the FTC v Microsoft Acquisition Trial of Blizzard we have an idea of how much they spend. Xbox has only sold 22 million consoles and not all of them are RentShitPass addicts and this renting deal has been out for years.

        We can deduce that GameShitPass isn't a feature that makes Xbox consoles desirable. I mean, PC users can get it too. But as we've seen they're at stage 3 of coping, they heavily advertisined PC ShitPassRent and it didn't move the needle on subs. So the final stage is peddling it to Sony and Nintendo. For the price of personally porting and delivering Xbox exclusives like HiFiRush to PS5 and Switch 1/2, Microsoft isn't given anything back from Sony or Nintendo. And those guys aren't putting ShitPassRent on Playstation or Nintendo consoles. Even if I wanted to use their shitty service, I don't like someone curating what I play and putting a gun to my head with a time limit to finish before the rent disappears.

      People fundamentally interact with movies/tv differently. A lot of people use streaming apps to put something on in the background and only occasionally sit and fully watch something. That doesn't really work with vidya and it's why so many people watch youtube and twitch. You have to engage with a game to play it and it takes much more effort to play through a game than watch a show on Netflix. Most people don't play more than 5 games in a year, usually less.

    How odd, I wonder why she would do that as a person responsible for the global branding of Xbox.

    The future is free with microtransactions. On a similar note, the future of streaming apps is free with ads. We are literally back to the birth of television.
