If it drives up the adoption rate it may mean a lot of assured revenue, they will probably make it 12month sub only to avoid the cheapskates.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

That would fix the problem I see.  As of now why would anyone NOT just pop in for a month play a game, then drop out.

Even $20 for two months is still a third of the games cost.

Seems like a desperate move by MS.

MS done realized that lineup wasn't going to sell well

OT: interesting to see how this will impact sales, mainly Halo.



Not sure how it will work out business wise, but from a consumer perspective that's a great deal!

I'd assume that's part of the reason for the online multiplayer focus of MS' 1st party. People are more likely to stick around beyond that month if they can't "finish" a game but instead can just keep playing it online.



Welp...gotta sign up again. LOL...and I just cancelled a few days ago.

Sure, but it will help if they better separate their games. If we take 2017 for example.

It was Halo wars 2 in Feb. Nothing for 7 months(cuphead).   Nothing for 2 months(Forza) and then PUBG in December.

If they can do something like Sea of thieves -> Crackdown 3 -> Forza. Each a couple months apart. They could string a game pass subscription an entire year.

So if they are careful when they release multiplayer games they could keep people "playing online" the entire year. Which combined with XBL would be a good amount of money.

How many upcoming games are from Microsoft Studios?
Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, Ori 2, State of Decay 2. Anything else?

Even if it's only that, that's a pretty good deal though.

This is a megaton by Microsoft.... this will lock Xbox one gamers on both Xbox live and Gamepass.

Sea of thieves was going to be a hard sell at $60 but now every one get to play the game at starting cost of only $9.99 a month. The # of users online is going to massive compare to what it would of been if it was a normal release.
