That's a HUGE win for Microsoft and will probably work out better for them than when they bought RARE.

I assume that might be accurate but on PS5 it will be 70 and on series s and x it will be on gamepass day 1

Some of the bigger IP's, possibly, but I wouldn't think that is in their plans.

They need must have, AAA titles & now they have a studios worth.

Not only this, but I wouldn't be surprised to see live services like Fallout 1st and Elder Scrolls Online's subscriptions rolled into Game Pass, requiring it across platforms. Makes the entire thing even more of a vehicle to drive Game Pass subscriptions.

Just a great move by MS

Announcing this the day before pre orders go up

Have to wonder now how big of a seller the S model will be to those Sony fans who were not going to buy the X but at 300 dollars to get that stable of gamepass games along with their ps5 must be real tempting
