With the emergence of on-demand gaming services, and soon with streaming platforms, it is common to find in the comments of the news users suspicious of having to pay monthly subscription to enjoy some of their launches. It will not be like that. At least on Xbox Game Pass where Phil Spencer has been reluctant to bet on this model.
” There has been someone who has come and put this idea on the table ” said the boss in a talk with the North American magazine Polygon. ” It’s true, studies arrive that tell us ‘hey, do not you want to put something exclusive in Xbox Game Pass?’, And I’m a little reluctant in this because I think the user wants to be able to choose ” I have added ” In the history of the game, people have bought their games and wanted to have a device where they can play them without being connected or subscribed ”
That does not mean that services like this are not changing the way of players’, for example, as Phil Spencer later stated in the interview, favoring the launching of episode adventures, and not just games as a service, where can you allow those responsible to build a better arc while having a large audience that is going to be attentive to the launch of each chapter.
What is certain is that this platform is a current pillar for Microsoft, which recently confirmed Xbox Game Pass for PC with more than 100 games. In addition, and in this line, Ubisoft presented its UPlay + with dozens of launches of the company.
