What’s the benefit for them if customers decided to play this game on game pass at cheap price?
If i get the game pass does that mean it runs from their launcher or does it use Steam?
Same as streaming services. Microsoft pays publishers for their games for a set amount of time. Games with more downloads may get a bigger percentage. The more popular your game you can money you can negotiate for when its time to renew the license.
This probably explains why Microsoft is going so ham on Epic right now.
Exclusives hurt shit like streaming services more then anything. Steam is a natural competitor, but wouldn’t stop them from also having those games up on Gamepass.
But every exclusive Epic buys is another game that won’t show up on Gamepass, and they need those launch titles to really make this deal worthwhile.
Game Pass is the perfect place for AA games and titles from smaller studios. It makes so much more sense to have them be part of some Netflix-esque sub.
