Looks like Phil thinks that Game Pass will have a positive impact on single player games.


Phil Spencer: The number of single-player games being built has gone down as an overall percentage of the games being built. I say that and people throw Sony's first-party at me or something, and they've done a great job building single-player games. It's not really about that. I see all of the games all of the publishers are building. I have - not because I'm smart - I have insight into what's coming and what the publishers are thinking. The thing I saw a couple of years ago was, everybody is kind of chasing this perpetual, how do I keep everybody into all of my franchises all of the time? This is when I said, Game Pass can actually enable great single-player games and stories to be told.

There was a little bit of conflict when I said that. But it was nice to see something like Outer Worlds. Yes, it's from one of our studios, but to boot that game and know that if I want to be done in 20 hours from now I can be. And if I want to play it for longer I can. There are certain games where that's what they should be, and I love that.

I think he has a point as a majority of SP only games I will NOT pay 60 dollars for.

Just saw it on the Xbox Reddit and was going to post. Really enjoyed Quantum Break so this is one I wanted to check out for sure. Even better if it's on Game Pass. Now to find the time to play all the great games on Game Pass... well I've got two five-day vacations around Christmas so you know what I'll be doing.

My friend pedro is a pretty fun game, nearly finished after 4 hours and will have another run using modifiers you collect. The gameplay varies as you progress too. Give it a go! The first half is the best of the game imo.

Also, if anyone finds some unknown gems on GP, please post some impressions here
Creature in the Well for me. It's a top down hack n slash type game, but set in a pinball style world if that makes sense? There aren't any enemies to attack but energy orbs that you can charge up and then hit at bumpers.
