11 million ain't that much.

Yeah it looks like a very good deal. Factoring in the good pr it's definitely sustainable.

Also makes me wonder what PS+/Gamepass have paid in total. When they're releasing old games it might be a lot cheaper than I realized.

Its so much cheaper than I would have expected, by like a factor of 10.  Some of these devs are getting pennies per player.  

The average free game cost 11 cents.

exactly why gamepass is not sustainable for game development if players change their habits and stop buying games which every indication is they are already doing.   the games and the entire industry will be a lot smaller and a lot shittier if gamepass is the primary generator of revenue.   ALL games will need to start incorporating mtx to recoup costs.
