Awesome. I so nearly bought 3 in the EPic sale.
Glad i didn't....
Not sure I will risk buying any games now to be honest! I'll just play whatever is on gamepass
I feel the same. OK I did play hitman 3 a year ago, it I'd have happily waited.
Same for subnautica below zero, breath edge, vermin tide 2 (though this comes and goes) shadow of war, two point hospital, and the rest I forget.
The best games for me on the game pass, I already own, making me waste money buying them, and then not get as good an experience from the game pass.
I'd be interest to know what game developers think of it. Do they enjoy getting an extra boost of players when it gets added to game pass, or do they worry about the loss from the buyers now just waiting for game pass release.
i would hope they aren't that short sighted and see an issue down the road should everyone go this way and stop buying games, as all that will happen is games will natrually end up on game pass even sooner after release as the initial sales just aren't there any more, but then eventually ms will have developers wanting games on game pass, rather than the current other way around, and then at that point, ms will be in the position of strength and be paying less.i do wonder if game sales have plummeted as a result. I guess developers don't care if MS are paying them enough.
Out of the last 10 games I've bought for pc/xbox. 8 are on game pass now.
Starting to wonder if it's ever worth buying any more.
