There are two things that really bug me about the Gamepass discussion.Don't forget it's mostly just fanboys ruining the discussion at large. Like how a few years ago it was a big thing to call Sony anticonsumer because first party exclusives are anticonsumer. It was just a transparent defense of Xbox having no games at the time. Gamepass stuff today is the same thing and the "internet consensus" will change rapidly as companies change their pr.
- For some reason, it is taken as granted that Gamepass is sustainable. For some reason, it is not up to MS to prove that the Gamepass model works, it is up to everyone else to prove that it doesn't. We see this in people saying Sony absolutely needs to follow suit. We see this with people quoting Phil Spencer, when without providing any context to what sustainable means, he says Gamepass is sustainable, that must mean Gamepass is profitable and it's good for everyone. We see this when it's suggested that Halo Infinite cost half a billion dollars, that therefore Gamepass can afford a half a billion dollar game.
- Selfishness. People saying it's great if MS buys up the entire industry, because then everything will be on Gamepass and that's good for me because I can afford Gamepass.
