Free 14 day Gamepass Trail = Free Sea of Theives.

How many of those 1m users, where playing the game for free on gamepass?

I don't know what to make of this, considering it's on gamepass and on both PC and Xbox.

also Free 14day trail for Gamepass.
Like 90% of that 1m user base, could be people that just signed up to try Gamepass and are playing the game for free.

This thread would be very differnt if it instead stated "100k copies of sea of theives sold"

Gamepass will definitely affect sales of MS published games.... OBVIOUSLY.  It is a very high value and significant service that gamers will use and enjoy.

As predicted gaming is becoming a proper service now.  Good. 

Is it better for the business to say  "I sold 1m units" or "I have 2m monthly paying subscribers who played my game"?   No brainer.

Downplay ahoy!

I'm not really here!
