    Xbox One: Thread 06

    https://www.dailystar.co.uk/tech/gam...es-for-console

    MS's head of Xbox marketing has said that the company will have a large presence at E3 this year in something of an effort to dispel chatter that came up after E3 floorplans for this years show suggested the company was going to have little floor space this time out.

    I read a site recently about Game Pass and how they claimed it could kill off the Xbox business arm of the company. It seems hyperbolic, though it does make you think about how Game Pass is MS's next big test of how much gamers love physically owning their games. In principle, it wouldn't be hard to see how it could certainly negatively impact MS. As a lone user I've little use for Xbox when it comes to multi-format games and most are probably in a similar boat given how the platform is lagging behind its rival. Game Pass compounds this by being a great service but one where companies other than MS aren't willing to put brand new releases on it. The biggest selling point, unless you want convenient easy access to a backlog on the cheap, is MS exclusives. Now, this is the area they struggle in so at best (currently) you're looking at potentially Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3 and Forza Horizon 4.

    MS is suddenly faced with a host of gamers paying 7.99 for a months subscription to complete the games totalling 23.87 rather than the 120-150 the games typically cost. That seems a stretch, not every Xbox gamer is going to take this approach but in theory if a reasonable chunk did it could harm Xbox profits. MS has two paths then, increase the number of exclusives to boost consistency in subs (a solution that's untenable given the costs of making games) or GAAS (that brings with it it's own myriad of issues).

    Either way, it seems Game Pass has been relatively low key for something that could fundamentally change Xbox's future as a whole

    I haven't bothered with game pass or either care about it. Give me real physical media anyday.

    Jet Set Radio Future and Panzer Dragoon Orta backwards compatibility please Mr Microsoft.

    Also, please use your huge mountains of cash to sort out the sodding Ferrari licence and bring us more Outrun.

    A few more games have been added to Xbox Backwards Compatibility and these ones have also been updated for Xbox One X, offering big resolution increases.

    Forza Horizon
    The Witcher 2
    Crackdown
    Fable Anniversary

    They've also added a performance/graphics mode incase you want to dial back the resolution to 360 era and see the sub 720p Halo 3 in action.

    Cool! I love the extra graphical boost the games get. Now if only they'd add Panzer Dragoon Orta and EDF 4.
