Explained as the Netflix of video games, the Xbox Game Pass It enables customers to access a brochure of games of different content for a solitary month-to-month registration rate. The solution was introduced on June 1, 2017, while the Xbox Live Gold clients got concern access on May 24.
I know that many people like to write that we burn money to fall on a golden chest at the end of the way. But no. The Game Pass is very, very viable on time it is. And he continues to grow. Asked by Journalist Stephen Tomato (Axis) to return over the 20th anniversary of the first Xbox, the Boss Phil Spencer obviously bound to twist the neck at a shortcut that often takes place in observers. According to him, despite the profusion of games available on the service and integration of titles FIRST Party from their launch, the calculations would be good.
No new official data other than the figure of the 18 million subscribers communicated last January. No reference to Microsoft s recent financial document, which revealed that the number of subscribers at Xbox Game Pass had not grown as quickly as the group hoped during its last fiscal year — despite growth Estimated 37% over the entire exercise that already looks great. And yet, for the head of the Xbox segment, the Game Pass is very commercially and from a point of view of creativity and commitment. Despite the fixed high-level growth objectives, so it continues to be, always according to Spencer, a real differential for (the) platform and a facilitator for creators like the players.
Asked about the profitability of an ecosystem that directly integrates the biggest exclusives First Party without even cashing, Phil Spencer invites us to make the ca cults: sans know the number of subscribers or how much they pay every month, you can Make decisions that are lucid and calculating what the game Pass can be — and it applies to any business segment. But absolutely, the Game Pass is viable, recognizes Spencer, who insists on perennial From the service, even if it is not Tu only center of interest of the organization.
At the rate of 9.99 per month for the basic offer, and €12.99 for the Ultimate version integrating PC, consoles, Cloud and online game via Xbox Live, the annual subscription covers the cost of two games full price In the year — at least without applying the reductions that are courses for new subscribers. Not to mention the door to micro-transactions and online services it opens, on which the manufacturer necessarily takes a share. A strong and perennial manna that supports the service development strategy, according to Spencer, even though the exclusives would no longer go through a direct purchase.
J Odor see the service grow, because I see what it brings to the diversity of the games to which people play and the projects we can finance to see them succeeded, enthuses the manager of the brand. Which again considers extending the community again beyond the circle of the consoles and the PC. The future, more and more people will join the Xbox community on mobile more than any other device, just in view of the number of smartphones in the world.
