In the framework of the GameLab, the creative Dino Patti and the executive Fredrik Wester, starred in an interesting talk about the services of subscription games, but also played on the movies and music, and sang the praises of Xbox Game Pass.
” With subscription services there are two perspectives, that of the consumer and that of the developer, “Patti told British portal GamesIndustry. & Quot; Consumers want as many games as possible, and as cheap as possible, but a developer has to also look at the business he can do with all of it. “
Until now this type of models had not” I think Xbox Game Pass is the first subscription service that does the right thing for developers. The other models of this type that have been suggested have never worked because they were not aware of what the studies really needed, “continued the former Playdead member, parents of such fantastic titles as Limbo or Inside. & Quot; With Game Pass, Microsoft is doing the right thing for developers “.
Fredrik Wester, from Paradox Interactive, for its part, establishes the comparison with other services: “Spotify, for example, pays the author depending on the number of times your songs are heard. Netflix, meanwhile, pays an amount based on what you think your product is worth. They are different things, and this last is what you see in Game Pass. It is an interesting model, although we believe that we are not paid enough because there are people who play our titles 3,000 or 4,000 hours, much more than individual video games. “
What is clear is that the platform Microsoft’s streaming game has been very active in recent times, and recently, Xbox Game Pass has added a handful of new video games.
