Sorry for the rant, AFter 3 fking weeks of no gaming, finally I can to sit down to play Phyconants on PC, but it wouldn't run.
So I thought maybe game was corrupted, so reinstalled.

Same shiit.
Turned out every game with Administrator permission required for installation game cannot run.
For 2 previous hours, I tried everything, update windows, uninstall reinstall gameservice. Nothing works.

So I decided to cut this POS from my PC. I never had major issues with ALL other gaming services steam, Epic, Blizzard Ubi, EA. But this game pass is so s***. Nevermind some game just broken.

Hope Sony has an upcoming better service than this POS on PC. I will return to just paying for games on steam & epic. At least I know they runs.

Fk Gamepass, waste of my precious time.



Edit: I changed the title after fixing the issue with gamepass that has more to do with my corupeted C drive than gamepass.

Weird, I haven’t had any issues with it on pc, granted I only play sea of thieves or some indie games on it. But I haven’t played in a while, on pc.

It's just weird how Microsoft seems to have so much hassle with PC, I googled and you definitely aren't alone and that's just for psychonauts. What was that other crap they screwed up? The game store or something?

Sorry. I've never had a problem myself.

Never had a problem with Gamepass other than Microsoft's update/patch policy on the platform. It pissed me off that MS had an incomplete version of The Ascent on GP on release day, while the complete and updated version was available on Steam, day one.

I like the gamepass service but as much as I HATE to say it, unless they fix their store and underlying issues with UWP, they are better served running PC gamepass through Steam. It maddning how inept they are with how PC gamepass works. It either works flawlessly or be prepared to troubleshoot for hours.

The only issue I've had with it is with the actual games.

They aren't good.

They do require too many permissions to access stuff, though. My trial will be up at the end of the month, and they've given me no reason to pay them $10-15 for the old stuff that's on there.
