I feel like these drive by, anti Playstation posts are just a tad too much.

You mean these " totally not made up stories " to make a brand look amazing and another make bad threads?

Everytime time i see "because a friend of mine ... etc etc ... look how amazing this brand is ... " , i call BS, sorry OP. i dont believe anything you said.

You wanted to make a thread about how great is game pass, fine, do it , you dont need to make up stuff IMO you made this all up , to " sell " your brand of choise.

Bingo!  Give this man a prize.  The OP can ask the same questions without some comparison story to make one brand better than the other, especially with their posting history. He/his friend look silly,  He could have gotten gamepass for PC, bypassing the Xbox one purchase, he could have compared PSNow with Gamepass see they offer a great deal of the same games outside exclusives.. he then goes to mention two PS but opts for gamepass instead, it all seems fishy.

For me, the answer is no. But the longer answer is, it could be. For me without a doubt the most important selling point of a console is exclusives. Regardless what MS does with the Xbox Brand, until they can at least compete with Sony/Nintendo with exclusive content, I am not buying in.

The second reason I say no, is because I rarely buy games day 1. Fact is games drop in price very quickly, which makes gaming cheap. I got Dragon Quest XI, God of War and Monster Hunter World for something like $80.

Interesting take. When someone says that they are a Nintendo fan and smears Nintendo (be it users on this site or Colin Moriarty), you don't doubt their claims. But when there's a story about a huge Nintendo fan who buys an Xbox instead of a PlayStation, it has to be fake.

Snoopy supports Team America, so it's not hard to imagine that he really has a friend like that. After all, people tend to choose likeminded people as their friends.

On topic: No. Game Pass isn't even exclusive to Xbox, so rather than a system seller it's a way to get people to invest money in games that can be played on an Xbox without necessary having to buy an Xbox. As a result, there won't be a significant positive impact on Xbox sales regardless of SKU and price.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

For me it isn't, but I can see it being very interesting for a lot of people.

I have no interest in Game Pass, or any service like it. My game collection is superior to it. Larger. Higher quality. And I own my stuff. No need to concern myself with wrapping up a game like MGS V under time constraints because it may be pulled from the service next month. And that's just the games I own. I have another 350-ish in my PS+ library.

Who knows though. Maybe some time down the line, a service like this will be more appealing. Doesn't fit my needs at all currently.

Didn't vote in the poll. Game Pass sure doesn't look like a system seller right now. I think it's fair to say it's had no impact on system sales thus far.

Why do you make a sarcastic conclusion when you provide evidence for his false claims of fandom? The thing that has been criticized about Moriarty is that he claims to still be a Nintendo fan, not that he wasn't a Nintendo fan at any point of his life. His top 25 has 0 games on Nintendo consoles after the SNES era, so it's obvious that is not a Nintendo fan anymore and hasn't been in a very long time. That's why people don't buy it when he claims that he is a Nintendo fan.

My friend just wants to play multiplatform games that can't be played on the switch and to save money. He isn't interested in any Xbox exclusive outside of Gears of war and as you can tell from my original post he prefers ps4 exclusives. Thus the reason why I ask if xbox game pass a system seller. However, keep getting defensive about it.

My friend actually doesn't care too much about Xbox exclusives outside of Gears of war. He thinks Xbox exclusive is just okay, but nothing great for the most part. He is a big Nintendo Nut and you would probably be more like-minded in regards to video games.



I recently got an Xbox 1 from a friend. He talked me into game pass. I was super iffy on the idea BECAUSE IT MEANS I OWN NONE OF THE GAMES! If I ever stop paying bam no games. That being said it's hard not to use it now I have it. If there is ever a giant EMP our culture will be erased.
