Just announced today at e3 these four games will be available on the game pass starting today
This is like announcing the new movies on Netflix as a bargain.
Although it’s interesting info I do tend agree with you. We don’t see any posts of games added to origin access? I think ozbargain just loves Xbox game pass
Yes, we just love Game Pass.
I can’t tell if that’s a joke or not 😂 but it really does. lol
Can you go to the store and buy Netflix movies separately for a higher price?
Of course you can, that's how people generally buy movies.
Yup. And you pay a higher price for it. That’s why I upvoted. It’s providing the games at a cheaper price. In my opinion it’s a deal.
@funkay: It's only comparable to getting games cheaper if you actually keep them. You can't play films/tv shows if you don't pay for Netflix, therefore its not a deal to just use their service as intended.
@FlipCrank: Nah. What he’s probably talking about is all games on game pass have a 20% off discount to purchase
@FlipCrank: We have posts about games with gold and psn, games you only get for free if you pay first. Games you only get to keep if you pay later.
@funkay: You are renting the games and whether it's a cheaper price entirely depends on which games you play, how many you play and how long your subscription is active for. This is exactly the same as Netflix, which was the original point, we don't see deals for new films being added to Netflix so why should additions to Gamepass be any different.
@mr_me450: You’re assuming everyone already has a Netflix or a game pass subscription. Between paying a cheaper price for game pass to rent and play the game (or watch the movie) and paying RRP for a game (or movie) I’m only going to play once, I’d pick this because it’s cheaper. And this is still after completely disregarding all the other games and movies I’d get as part of those subscriptions as well.
@funkay: The original post is not about buying Gamepass, is about new games being added to Gamepass. So by supporting this as a deal it is in fact you that is assuming everyone already has access to a Gamepass subscription in order for the deal to be valid. If you want to see a valuable post that actually offers a good deal on a Gamepass subscription then you’d need to look a few deals back before this one was posted. This is just an announcement about new games being added to a subscription service, which is exactly what subscription services do all the time. No deal to be found here.
@mr_me450: If I didn't have game pass and I wanted to play the game cheaper than RRP I'd use this deal. It's not really that complicated.
Cinema, disc media, online digital stores, other streaming services.
What about buying Netflix original context? Same as Xbox exclusive games.
Having exclusive games
Ahahaha good one
Having exclusive games
Ahahaha good one
Gears of war
@funkay: No XBox exclusives on this 'deal', and how many XBox exclusives cannot be had on the PC?
@FabMan: Still cheaper than retail.
@funkay: Debatable since I can keep retail games, resell them, and Game Pass loses games over time too. Pay for one month, I get access to lots of games, don't pay a month and I don't have them anymore.
This wasn't the point though was it?
Do we need posts for every Netflix, Amazon Prime, Stan, Foxtel, Spotifly, Google Music, Audible, ComiXology, and all the other subscription services updates? I reckon no, a forum dedicated too that is more appropriate.
@FabMan: I reckon yes. Not everyone goes through the same rigmarole of game ownership as you do.
@funkay: Well this whole retail business is new, so its understandable simple minds find purchasing from a shop complicated.
@FabMan: This is why people are so afraid of posting deals on this website starting off their posts with "be kind, it's my first time" etc. It's toxic - There doesn't have to be comments left that are hostile simply because people have a difference of opinion. Disappointing.
@funkay: Don't be silly and so dramatic, have you never disagreed with someone before? We disagreed on a point of view and you ridiculously described retail purchases as a rigmarole, so I mocked you for it.
I still don't believe it should be a post and should be in the forums, however nice this information is. I might as well post new constructions in every area in the country in case someone wants to move into a new area.
@FabMan: I posted my comments in support of this post as they suit me. They don't suit you, I get it. You don't have to infer I'm small minded because you don't agree with me.
If you want to buy and sell every game you've played, then good for you. Just don't attack me because I don't do the same thing.
@funkay: Okay. Do you really think purchasing something at a shop is actually a rigmarole?
How is this a deal? Should probably exist on the forums
Because for $1 you can play these games through to completion. Plenty of posts like this in the past.
Mods can move this to the forums if they don't think it belongs here
I signed up after the conference, getting constant errors trying to download things like Metro (other indie games work)
"Administrator Approval required for installation" and error 0x80070005
Anyone got any ideas? =( =(
It'll be like this for all of today, just imagine how many people are signing up for this. Its enough to slow one of the largest tech companies in the world's servers. My windows update is taking forever so I can actually download gamepass.
I'm really hoping that is just the case and not some weird regional/account problem.
Like I said I was able to download other things like Wargroove fine, which had me concerned.
For whatever reason, Metro Exodus Windows Edition requires the new Xbox app to work, which in turn requires Windows 10 1903 update to be installed (build 18362.0, check the system reqs for Metro). Once I opted in to get 1903 early, I was able to grab the new Xbox app and install Metro.
That said, I still can't PLAY Metro, keeps saying it can't sign into to my Xbox account, but Guacamelee 2 and other indies are fine.
I was forced to update Windows before I was able to download that Xbox app, so I assume I am on the latest version.
I will have another look tonight I guess.
Oh they added Shenmue I & II and Thimbleweed Park as well neat
Yeah. Just saw thimbleweed. I wanna get home now so I can just queue everything up to download
Can't you on the app?
My home console is set to a different Xbox so it always pushes installs to the wrong console (I’m too lazy to figure out how to change this).
I can manually choose which device to install on through the web browser but it’s poorly optimised for phones and i can’t press the install button. So close yet so far! 😂
I almost BB bought this game!
Just bought Borderlands THC. It's only $14 but I might try my luck with a refund.
But do I also need to be a gold member in addition to game pass?
If you wish to play online, you will need to be an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. Otherwise, Game Pass is enough to play the game(s).
Not with Xbox game pass ultimate.
staDIA IS COMING!!!!
I have this so great news, but I think the real star of the show is the fact that we can still buy cheap game pass/live and load up our accounts before converting it over to ultimate.
considering i just spend $60- on metro this is a bargain
Will I be able to play Borderlands with my Steam friends if I get Xbox Game Pass? The Handsome Collection is $9 on Steam so I was considering buying that.
Borderlands has no cross-platform play
Whoops, my bad! I didn't realise The Handsome Collection was only on the Xbox One Game Pass not for the PC.
