You’ve probably heard rumors about Xbox Game Pass coming to Nintendo Switch. I gotta say Microsoft does not fuck around, they are planning to bring Xbox Game Pass to every device possible – including PC, Android devices and PS4 as well.
In a new interview with Geekwire, Phil Spencer (the head of Xbox) talked about the company’s big plans for the Xbox Game Pass.
“We want to bring Game Pass to any device that somebody wants to play on. Not just because it’s our business, but really because the business model allows for people to consume and find games that they wouldn’t have played in any other space.”
Recent leaks from the brand new Windows 10 insider release show that Microsoft is probably going to allow us PC gamers to play not only Xbox Game Pass games but Xbox exclusive ones as well. More info here.
Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC? Yes please! Although I’m on my second playthrough now :D
This poll shows that pproximately 25% of gamers would be willing to buy Nintendo Switch just to play games via the Game Pass.
Will this have a negative impact on the Xbox hardware sales? Probably but according to Spencer “That is not where you make money. The business inside of games is really selling games, and selling access to games and content in means like that is the fundamental business. So if you open it up, the more often people can play, the more they’re enjoying the art form. It increases the size of the business.”
Netflix for gaming is finally here and I’ve been using it for a while now, if they are going to expand to PC and other devices soon… Steam is going to have a hell of a competitor. Good.
