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.
