Here is my biggest grip from another gamers point of view. What if Activision won't let BLOPS 2 be BC but put in that Game Pass service? You know the sh*t storm that MS will get for that.

The more I think about it seems pointless. If you have a hardware that can do BC and now all of sudden you have to pay to play those Xbox 360 titles, to me that is not gamers first.
I highly doubt it will ever be the case that backwards compatible titles are tied to this. That seems like a step out of bounds away from all of the good MS has been providing with extra functionality for users; imposing limits or exclusives would be a massive negative.

For them to do that, it'd be apparentthat they are purposely f***ing users over. I don't think that will ever happen.

When Gamestop offers $5 trade in value for games like Uncharted 4, how can you feel sorry for them?
Well MS was gping to help Gamestop on used games with their original policies that MS had in place.

Gamestop pretty much told MS to go f*ch them self.

Wow how things change. Gamestop and go to hell for all i care.

Spencer wants to get some games to launch on the service.

Can only see it being smaller titles at first unless he himself greenlights a big title on it.

Could be anything really. Digital is the future and has been Microsoft's plan from the start. It's all going in the cloud eventually whether we want it to or not.

Noticed it on the dash today.

At the moment it's mostly 360 games with Gears ultimate edition being the most recent One title.

I either own the Xbox One games on that list, or have no desire to play the others.
It is a terrible offering at the moment.

MS haven't even included their own old games, like Ryse, DR3, Forza 5.

They just gave Ryse away on GwG, like a month ago. DR3 is Capcom's, even if they helped fund it.

My main issue with the service is that I feel it would have been better implemented as a higher tier for Xbox Live. Having to do 2 different subscriptions seems pretty redundant, to me. I get the whole EA Access thing, but this is two different Microsoft services. I don't know.

If i didnt own most of them already it would be good value to me. Can't deny the appeal for a new owner though.

it will grow over time, they just need to take the plunge and throw some heavy hitters in there.

I think sea of thieves should launch in game pass. It's a game that could make or break on the number of ppl playing. I'm sure there's lots of micro transactions in game to top the revenue up.

Great for certain people.

I'll pass on this. I barely have enough time to play the games I already own and my backlog is huge. Same reason I don't have EA Access. The games would just sit there.

I'll bet as this service evolves by adding more and more games this will be great for Xbox. I'd love it if Sony followed suit and came out with their own version of this service. I just don't trust streaming for gaming, input lag drives me crazy.

Yeah, they need to roll this into a "Gold +" subscription for $99/yr. You can do monthly at $9.99 or yearly at $99 (throw in Gold for free). This would be killer. Maybe throw in a discount on new digital purchases as well (5-10%).

Also, as others stated, this will grow over time Just like EA Access. At first, the $30/yr wasn't really worth it but now tons of sports games, B/C games all the older BF games and Battlefront are on there.

Agreed.

Out of that list, I'd ballpark at least 30 have already been GwG freebies at some point.

I see the target being a family or gamer that has no interest buying $60 launch games, doesn't care about playing older games, and just wants an assortment of stuff to dabble with without requiring specific games to play. Also, a person/family that is indifferent to paying $60 Gold. Game Pass even works offline (unless you want to play MP). So MS is hoping to get cash flow from gamers who don't intend to buy Gold, but may spend money to mess with a pile of games offline without caring about MP modes.

For any gamers who already do Gold, then getting them to spend more money on Game Pass is bonus.
