Disney Plus is still $7.99 for me.

My Netflix is $18 a month, and is set to raise to $20. And I never see anyone complain about their prices. Not sure why people complain about the Game Pass price.

Game Pass is a solid deal though. At $14.99 it gives you a "Netflix" like subscription service to games basically for like $5, cause Xbox Live Gold is $9.99 if you just use that, and Game Pass includes Live Gold on top of that.

I don't even care who outsells what, but The Xbox series X, and PS5 sell out instantly, every time so this isn't a matter of one doing better than the other this is a matter of who can make more systems fast enough to fill the demand.

The company that makes the most systems wins. When the dust clears (maybe next year?) , is when it starts to matter.

In the US yeah.

Once all ďexisting agreementsĒ are done with PlayStation, MS will cut ties to Sony. Also since this is a long-term deal, I have little doubt MS will raise the price of Gamepass. Not a crazy amount more. A few bucks.

And I think that's merely the conversation around console wars. If we zoom out another notch to "Microsoft gaming" vs "Sony gaming", Microsoft long ago began thinking much bigger. Given their role in PC, cloud gaming, etc, not to mention their financial resources, they're positioned quite well.

Sony may need to think about gaming more like Nintendo, with an emphasis on franchises they own. Nintendo has shown that can be a successful plan too. Farther ahead when streaming games becomes more common, both will need post-console plans (for which I am sure they've discussed internally).

Gamepass is just a bonus to me. I still buy games I like be it the disc or digital copy. Ideally I buy the ones I really like on disc that way if my internet goes down I can still play.

It works. Iíve played my Series X a few times with my Internet down. I could only play games I had the disc for, though. Would not let me play digital games, at all.

Are those digital games titles that would necessarily need the internet connection to function (ie. MMOs), or no?

Iím not happy about MS buying Activision, and I really think consolidation is bad for the gaming industry. However, if it finally gets rid of Bobby Kotick than good. Heís been treating the workers and the IPs of Activision like pure garbage. Hopefully it leads to positive change within the work culture of Activision/Blizzard.

No. itís because digital titles are attached to your Microsoft account. So, if your account is not logged in, the software canít verify that you own the proper license to play it and therefore will not start.

Oh man I had no idea. Well, since discs work it's not as bad as the whole 2013 DRM plans that were called off, but yea that seems like a lighter version of it.

I remember having the disc of Forza 5 in my Xbox One when my internet decided to go down. Was greeted with an error. Then was greeted with you canít play this offline, please sign in!

That was 2013.

Today, Iíve seen people try & fail to get some disc based Xbox SX games to work without any internet. Donít think people complain or care about it as much as 2013.

Reading an article over at Ars about the "metaverse" and MS's acquisition of Activision. Is metaverse just a new name for games as a service? I honestly can't keep up with this shit.

Itís an extension of the internet that is being sold to people with no real $ value attached. In other words, people are dumb.

It's a focus on NFT BS, at least so far.

Microsoft now says that it has "committed to Sony" that "Call of Duty and other popular Activision titles" will be "available on PlayStation beyond the existing agreement and into the future so that Sony fans can continue to enjoy the games they love." The Xbox maker also says it is "interested in taking similar steps to support Nintendoís successful platform" following its planned $68.7 billion purchase of the megapublisher.
Quote:
It's also important to remember that Microsoft is making these statements as regulators around the world examine the antitrust implications of Microsoft's massive purchase, which won't be finalized for months. Previously, Microsoft and Bethesda hinted at nonexclusive Bethesda titles before that purchase was finalized last March, only to confirm Xbox console exclusivity for the studio's major games shortly afterward.
