Xbox Game Pass lets players play a huge library of games for a small monthly fee and it is great value for money. Some major releases also come to Xbox Game Pass at launch and it is one of the reasons why it has become so popular amongst Xbox players. The Xbox Game Pass could be coming to other devices as well.
Phil Spencer talked about this and mentioned how it will not only help the company but the industry as a whole which includes gamers and the competition as well. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
We want to bring Game Pass to any device that somebody wants to play on. Not just because it’s our business, but really because the business model allows for people to consume and find games that they wouldn’t have played in any other space.
This vision will be turned into a reality by using both Xbox Game Pass and project Xcloud. It will be interesting to see what Microsoft has planned. People have been asking for the Game Pass on PC and this could be one of the platforms for which Game Pass will be announced. This might hurt the sales of the Xbox One but Spencer claims that the company is not concerned about that. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
[Hardware] is not where you make money, he says. The business inside of games is really selling games, and selling access to games and content in means like that is the fundamental business. So if you open it up, the more often people can play, the more they’re enjoying the art form. It increases the size of the business.
Microsoft is going to release a new software development kit at GDC 2019.
