So let's compare a made up AAA game.
Game pass has 10 Million users. Source: https://www.theverge.com/2020/4/29/21242004/xbox-game-pass-10-million-subscribers-microsoft-q3-2020-earnings
Let's say 70% is paying full price of $10 a month. Many users are using the service through $1 deals, etc. This is $70,000,000 per month. so $840,000,000 in a year.
Let's say this Sony sells 10 million copies in a year at $60 a copy. That's $600,000,000.
So it looks like Microsoft make more money right? Wrong.
Sony make another AAA game in the same year and that's ANOTHER $600,000,000. So now we have $1,200,000,000. Microsoft however are still going to earn $840,000,000 in the year as both their AAA games are included in one price.
Ohhhh, so publishers get 100% of the money on every purchase now do they. Damn, why I didn't I think of that. And of course all those game sales occur at full price as well...nobody buys those on sale ever. Checks out.
