I bought both Like A Dragon: Ishin and Dead Space remake on Xbox in the last few months, and haven't booted either of them up yet, lol.

You never know with these services. The only thing that can be suggested is that if you are not 100% sure you are going to play the game on purchase, wait. I have been guilty of the same practice.πŸ˜‚

Funny, Sony added Callisto Protocol to their service this month too. Console rivals pitting off gaming rivals on the same month on their rival subscription services.

Dead Space seems added to Game Pass via EA Play, so, possibly limited to those with Game Pass Ultimate via the EA Play catalog addition. If it's available to all Game Pass then MS probably paid a little extra to make it happen.

On Sony's end, I suspect their marketing deal for Callisto Protocol came with their boilerplate 1 year prohibition against being added to subscription service, plus the 120 day priority negotiation window to match rival offers to get it on their service instead. Of course, they'd have the leverage to renegotiate it, which I suspect they did. And perhaps Glen Schofield leaving Striking Distance after the game's lackluster sales and then this deal happening indicates that such a deal would have been cheap, and an easy deal to muscle as there were no other options for the publisher when they locked themselves in that original deal.

Goes without saying, Dead Space superior title between the two, Glen Schofield helped create both. Funny enough, if you watch old Dead Space developer diaries, what became of Callisto Protocol was actually Glen Schofield's original plans for Dead Space since the beginning, which he originally called "Rancid Moon". Probably indicates Dead Space became what it became due to creative pushback. So when he finally got to make the game he wanted, it was a major dud. Despite being rough at launch, many remarked the game just ended prematurely. Though I've been told the DLC really ties up the story where the base game just cut off. I'm going to guess he was in a rush to release this ahead of Dead Space remakes release, perhaps out of spite. And, well, that was the wrong move in hindsight.

Gamepass is such a great deal. I may need to resubscribe soon. My PS+ just ended and I am not signing back up for that due to their insane and unjustified price increase. Maybe I will look through the catalogue tonight and look at what else has been released since I left the service earlier this year.

Other than Deadspace and Cities Skylines that's a pretty weak lineup in my personal opinion, although I might as well try them out.

Damn it I just bought Dead Space remake on Steam a couple months ago. Oh well.

I wish Alan Wake 2 was Day 1 GP. Really looking forward to it graphically with all the path tracing and stuff. Other than that it looks like a boring movie game with no gameplay.

The ps5 isn’t as starved for games like you haters love to make it out as.

In the end the ps5 still have the better library.

For you maybe. But going by scores, Xbox is ahead. And IMO, Xbox has a better library, by a landslide victory.

Don't be annoyed with the narrative your folks have pioneered. Remember Sony fannies have pushed that the only games that matter are first-party games. It just so happens, there has been a lack of on PS5.πŸ™ƒ

People acting like absent day one releases?

Just off top of my head but last few weeks we got Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Starfield, Cacoon, Payday 3, Lies of P, Forza Motorsport, Warhammer 40K Darktide (for Xbox).

That's great value just right there.

@Pedro: "Jusant this month."

Goddamnit, we're drowning in value here, I'm going to be lucky if I get through half of what I just mentioned before Persona 3 Reload hits Game Pass early next year. And I also just downloaded Like A Dragon: Ishin the other night too. I don't even know when I'm going to find time to buy and play Blasphemous 2 or Robocop between now and then.

I almost envy cows right now, they got it simple, just simplify the road ahead with paying $70 for Spider-Man 2, followed by an unspecified time when Sony shadow drops a State of Play to get people psyched for **drum-roll** a re-release of an old twice re-release PS exclusive going to PC, and they can resume knocking out their blacklist. I need time to knock out my backlist, I'm super jelly.

I'm also looking forward to Jusant, eventhough its gameplay could go either way at this moment:

could be really good, could be really boring. We'll see, I'll try it out for sure though.

I've never seen Jusant before, looks pretty cool. I'd definitely try it out and the Dead Space remake if I had a sub.
