Double Bing points on PC searches.

Nice. 520 pts per day. 56 days to 1 year of xbox live gold. 309 days for game pass.

I know it's off topic, but I also trust my homies on this thread's opinions.....Is there a good place for deals on Switch digital downloads? A place like this with an active community of contributors?

Also has me thinking: yes it’d be nice to get other publishers on board, but since EA alreacy has Access, imagine if they played with their model a bit. Instead of $25-30 for the year, they make it $60 (or more, knowing EA), and you get launch day access to all their sports titles every year. That would disrupt a whole lot of used game trade-in promos and such, and would give their subscriptions a hell of a boost.


That’s actually a pretty good idea. I’d wager EA will be taking a close look at how MS handles this.

As for disrupting trade in specials, I bet the retailers would be glad to be rid of all that unsellable inventory of Sports Game X-minus-1. I remember my days of retail and seeing the stack of 50 copies of Madden 2001 that only grew after November.

anybody else not able to get to the Bing Rewards dashboard?

 

I can use Bing to search but I can't get to the dashboard

Try going to xbox.com and logout.  Had trouble getting to the Bing dashboard earlier, but it loaded after I logged out from elsewhere in the MS web ecosystem and logged back in.

If ever there was a genre for a subscription model, it's sports titles, given how quickly they're discarded.

Other than the POS GameStop thread, I would have to bet this is the most active on this site. Might be the third of the big three in console sales but Xbox kicks ass here!

I’m sure EA could make the financials work for that. However, i imagine the biggest stumbling block would be the leagues themselves. Let’s not forget what happened when NFL 2K5 dented Madden’s sales at $20 launch. EA didn’t want its sales to tank, but the nfl didn’t like the idea of their trademarks being sold at a lower price.

Isn't that EA Access? It's way cheaper than Game Pass and you get all of their sports games to play in full after the season ends along with all of their non-sports games.

It is, but the reason for that discussion was specifically regarding day one access and whether EA would ever offer something with that. Lord knows if they did I couldn't sign up quick enough.

It would be nice, but they'd probably increase the price when that happens. They seem to be happy with giving you a demo of each game for $30 per year and full access to it after it's relevancy ends.

I would totally pay $99 a year for an "EA Sports" subscription that had day one access to the big four. I could see just enough people being willing to pay that to make it worth offering while it still would be too much for the masses which would guarantee they would still sell a ton the way they currently do. Win-win.

Get some EA Big titles on BC and I'd be down.

In other news, I think I have hit my peak of laziness after "playing" Clicker Heroes for 5 hours today after work.

I think it just means games they're publishing for the temporary exclusivity (PUBG, Dead Rising 3/4, Rise of the Tomb Raider) won't be included.

I can't get into the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta.

 

I am a ps4 player for all my fighters but wanted to play a little more before release. Was super stoked xbox would be getting an extension and hopped on tonight. I went to boot it up but all I had on the Xbox was the old Closed Beta client from over 6 month ago. That one isn't working an then when I go to DL the Open Beta client it says that it is unavailable....

 

Any idea what is up?

Interesting question because then Forza would be included. I can't really imagine them giving that or Halo or Gears away for free right away.

Quote from the Xbox news page (bold is mine):

"This plan to bring new games timed with their global release into Xbox Game Pass not only includes announced titles like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3 but future unannounced games from Microsoft Studios including new iterations of our biggest Xbox One exclusive franchises such as Halo, Forza and Gears of War, on the same day they launch."

Where were you guys getting a year of game pass so cheap? Damn I wish I had a time travel machine.

 

I also completely forgot when I bought my X it came with a month pass. So can do the 14 trial then the month right when Sea of Thieves launches.


... go to sleep.
