Strongly disagree. Day one GP releases are much more important to me than exclusivity. 

They are great in the short term, but you have to think long game. More exclusives = more Xbox hardware sales. More Xbox hardware sales = More Xbox 2nd and 3rd party exclusives, more Japanese ports, less Sony timed hats (as they become more expensive for Sony to hat the less the marketshare ratio favors Playstation).

A handful of key 2nd and 3rd party Xbox exclusives that we have to wait 6 months to play on Gamepass this gen, can have huge benefits for Xbox in the long game, even multiple generations down the line. We have to stop thinking with an instant gratification mindset, and I say this as a Gamer on a very tight budget who loves day one Gamepass games. They are great, but Xbox can't focus only on day one Gamepass. That only day one Gamepass policy hurt them last E3 because it caused very few JP games to be on their showcase, and now it's hurting them with Indiana Jones and presumably other deals they have tried to sign behind closed doors too.

MS can worry about all that stuff and how best to achieve their targets. My only concern is getting more great games, on a consistent basis, hitting GP for me to play. I don't wanna have to wait 3-6 months to play something on GP, just so it can be exclusive and people somewhere else can't play it.
