LOL. Love it

Kotaku made an article :

https://kotaku.com/xbox-game-pass-subscriber-numbers-2022-xbox-series-x-s-1848963643?utm_campaign=Kotaku&utm_content=1653326355&utm_medium=SocialMarketing&utm_source=twitter

It basically goes like this :

Xbox : subscribe to Gamepass, we are offering day 1 AAA games

GP subscriber : noticed a lack of AAA games day 1

Xbox :what kind of idiot wants day 1 AAA games

Amazing how apologists come out of the woodwork constantly to defend this crap service....

They tout 'day 1 AAA games and 1st party' and yet there are next to none on the service in reality.

It's a con-job. It's for suckers and they keep delaying and not saying when games are due to string these fools along.

This drags the industry down, it makes the customers look dumb, it's thinly veiled DRM and it doesnt allow customers to reward great games and punish bad games individually.

Xbox shills twist and turn....first it's about 1st party and AAA day 1 and now all of a sudden it's about indies and AA.

Corporate lapdogs. Bootlickers.

Yeah, they should have sat this one out. Who the hell pays attention to Kotaku? Now, the Xbox social media account has unintentionally gone at a chunk of its userbase. They‘ve let things get messy on twitter, which is wild because they’ve been doing so well lately. Dozens of Ambassadors kicked from the program for their twitter misbehavior post the Starfield delay, and now they’re being clowned for liking AAA games… This could have all blown over. But Xbox has brought more attention to it and made things worse…

And what’s the message they’re trying to send with this? Give us your $10-$15 a month to play some indies? I thought they were pushing a premium service that’s the best deal in gaming… Is it consumers fault Xbox can’t get AAA games out the door?!?! This is bizarre

I don't give a fuk what their PR people say on Twitter as long as they are providing quality games on the service at a good price. People get too caught up in social media bullshit. I remember when there was no social media and the internet was not common in households. We used to read about games in magazines and there wasn't constant drama. The focus was on the games.

You love to see it. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

The state of Xbox ix so fucking embarrassing. Flushing billions down the toilet and STILL don't have their shit together. Of COURSE people want AAA day ones for the service because that's what you promised them. GP is doomed to collapse like Netflix but with like one-twelfth of the subs 🤣

One need only look at the person's Twitter account to see he's a Sony loving Xbox hating fanboy. Curious if he even really had an Xbox Game Pass subscription to cancel.

Both takes are bad.

Some folks only play AAA games and, there's nothing wrong with that. People were expecting a slew of AAA exclusives from Microsoft and, they've barely delivered in the last 18 months.

At the same time, GamePass has tons of content that's well worth the price if you're willing to explore indies and lesser known games.

This wouldn’t be an issue if Phil and Co. didn’t set such high expectations for the service years ago.

Now their social media account is clowning consumers that have this expectation… In most cases, overhype is the fault of the consumers. Here, the consumers were just following Xboxs lead.

Just checking in on if they ever gave any kind of compensation for those days that their online services were down and people couldn't play games even offline... anyone know?

**** AAA games.

There. I said it. Seriously, what have they done for you lately?

And I'm saying this as someone that enjoys games in general, not as a MS or Xbox or Game Pass fan.

Best thing about Game Pass is the small and independent games, I just wish they'd give the developers a better cut but that's true of all platforms.

PS5 has the 2022 goty called elden ring (a game that's light years ahead of botw btw, but you already knew that). Does the Switch have it? That thing can't even run its menu screen, so forget about it being on the system.🤭

It's ok to be an xbox fan and demand what you were promised. You don't need to shill for these companies. Agreeing with them doesn't do anything. Hold them accountable.

Isn't this the third thread on this subject in the last week or so?

So what is PS5s AAA game this month, and what is their AAA game for June, since AAA games fall out of the sky and all?

GT7 took 9 years to make. :-S

Firstly, MS said their own games would come out day one, be them AAA or not, when they are completed. They never said they were going to be banging them out on a monthly basis and that they'd be all be AAA.

Secondly, that was only one of many features of the service.

Thirdly, how can any of these games be of quality if they're forcing them out to make the cows happy, because they finally got two games (HFW and GT7) after their own drought.

MS released four games at the end of last year (three 9s and a 10). So how often can these games be expected to come out? PSs two games got 8s.

Gamepass still has a shit ton of games between Gamepass, Gold and EA Play, which is the point of it. The service was doing well in late 2020 when no games were ready when the Series consoles came out. So I don't know why all of a sudden the narrative is "it's only about day one AAA games that should be coming out every month".

It's a great service with a fantastic mix of AAA, classics and Indies. Highly recommend it.

The article it self is just tabloid news.

Just renewed mine for another month. Kinda thinking about pausing it though. $15/month isn't cheap for the amount I use it lately. Not really into indies, especially now that I have a PC that can run everything. No regrets with my time on gamepass, but it's getting stale. I had a lot of games to play that I haven't played before on xbox. Horizon 5 was cool for a bit but boring now. Halo is boring. Gears is boring. Crackdown is horrible. MSFS was cool for 5 minutes or so. Might try some zombie games on there next. No hate for gamepass here but I hope some new games come to it soon.

He meant including games like GOTG, which is a big budget AAA title from square.

GOTG came out in 2021. That’s a strange, but convenient example...

Is Elden Ring a AAA game? I'd argue it's graphics engine alone disqualifies it.

I don't really care either way, not trying to start shit; I'm just used to AAA games looking better than that. Having higher production values.

How hard is it to look at the list of games, then look at the price and make a decision based on the value proposition offered?

Shit, I don't know. I just assumed. But they're probably not AAA, you're right.

So what have AAA games done for me lately? Jack diddly-squat is what they've done!

I fully get people who lets say have been subbed for a while, played what they wanted to play and are looking at the next offerings and going well nothing I want to play on this service is coming out for 6 months or so, I'll unsub and then resub on release of the next title I want to play. I think that seems like a perfectly reasonable way of approaching things, gamepass still offers good value but I can absolutely see how someone who has played what they valued on the service might un-sub/down tier until the service is offering them the value they want again.
