    This is pretty amazing, XB1 Exclusive titles, available on game pass at launch for $11 a month (AUS). Now all MS need are actual exclusives.

    Wow, that actually is really neat. I'm interested in Sea of Thieves. You going to play with me, hbeb? Also, I am interested in Crackdown. I like this, although I am somewhat concerned as to why Microsoft is doing this. It makes me wonder if they're giving up on the console market. Or maybe I am reading too much into it and it's quite the opposite. Either way, Microsoft needs to stay in the console business. Sony and Nintendo need that competition.

    why is this a Thing?

    Not having to buy a single XB1 exclusive, that is why. Just some info monkey, Game Pass is like Net flixs for games. There are over 100 XB1/360 games on game pass and there are some real gems in there. you pay a monthly/quarterly/yearly sub fee and can play any game of the listed games when you choose to.

    If Sony does not do BC on the next console, and hey there is a team out there asking leaps and bounds with emulation so they can buy them up and make that 3rd party emulator there own.


    any wya If no BC on the next Sony console, well why buy one? You can play nearly all 360 games on the XB1, all XB1 games on all version's f the console and the next XB will carry these features over, so PS may just end up being a platform for exclusives.

    I get what it is, I just don't understand it from a business point of view.
    But it's definately a good thing from a consumers point of view.
    And sure they're probably making good returns on it otherwise such things would not exist.
    I do agree that it's purdy neat, I just wasn't expecting that.

    As for Sony.. I don't see them going back to BC. There's more money to be made selling the same games twice or by having them behind a monthly service

    I see it as good because it is a case of PS Now vs Game Pass

    Now allows you to stream games from a number of devices not limitd to the PS4

    where as game pass lets you download but is restricted to the Xbox one and windows 10 platform.

    so pros and cons to both. the advantage MS has is with the download and the XB exclusives being on game pass.
    sonys Pro is if you have a TV and a PS4 controller you can can play your games with no console.

    It will be interesting to see how these to tackle the issue of lest call them legacy games going forward. MS seems to have a clear advantage.
