Yeah but how much is their Windows store sales up? I went from having no access to their games (I don't own nor wish to own an Xbox) to having the PC xbox pass (which I intend on keeping after the promotional period). They are now getting money from me when they weren't before.
Games & services, included that stuff.
Its down 3%? and overall all gameing related was down 10%.
So its down compaired to last year.
plus with how many people upgraded gamepass for 1$ and did the 3year trick.... it ll be awhile before things change I suspect.
basically it looks like haveing people buy games at full price is the most profitable way to go, if you can get them to do so.
