My only concern would be if this is a move to begin to go fully to a service model and ditch hardware. I know they already were looking at mobile streaming but on a competing console?

I don’t mind it coming to Switch. Just not sure what it says about the future of Xbox as a console.

All the rumors do say that there are going to be two versions of the Xbox Two. One traditional console with much like the current systems, and one that streams games through the server stuff the video is talking about. I don't neccesarily think it reflects poorly on the future of Xbox using traditiaonlly owned and installed games for a while at least. It's more like they're broadening their scope and offereing more options. For it to really shift how the format works I think the majority of the industry would have to find success with streaming. Many of the big companies like EA and Ubisoft are working on something to this effect, but we don't know if it will do well or not yet.

 

Personally I don't care about the streaming stuff unless it blows all the current competition out of the water. No matter what I don't want to play games with delayed input due to the streaming nature of it. I feel like it'd be unplayable on most WI-FI which would be counter intuitive with the portable-ness of the switch.

 

As for a more traditional look at GamePass, it could have legs if it continues to work the same basic way on Xbox, but more as a fringe benefit for Xbox players that own a Switch than Switch-only players. Even if Microsoft were to publish the occasional game on Switch like the rumor says, there are only a so many that would really be possible from a technical perspective. Right now it's just Minecraft and sort of Hellblade. If they can keep getting third parties on board it would make more sense, but without stuff like Gears and Halo they'd need to branch out even more than what we've got.

 

Looking at the current list of GamePass stuff, this is what is on or coming to Switch, off the top of my head. It actually better than I thought. Though they'd surely have to renegotiate for anything to be on an additional platform:

 

Abzu

ARK: Survival Evolved (lol)

Dandara
Darksiders Warmastered
Doom
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
Guacamelee!
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
Hello Neighbor

Human Fall Flat

Life is Strange

Manual Samuel

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2

Metal Slug 3

Ms. Splosion Man

OlliOlli 1 and 2

Outlast

Resident Evil Revelations 2

Rime

Rocket league

Saints Row The Third

Shantae and the Pirates Curse

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Sky Force Reloaded

Snake Pass

Terraria

The Walking Dad

3 days left on a lot of those. Is there a special sale starting that is hitting Sunday night or something?

That's Monday night.  The times are pulled directly from the marketplace pages and day counters don't include hours / minutes.  So while there may be some exceptions, they're mostly 3 days, 23 hours and 20-some minutes.

You'd probably be lucky for $30 on Nier. They have the Game of the Yorha version coming out on PS4 this week retailing at $40.

 

Edit: Yeah, counting down 3 days it's probably a permanent price drop to $40.

Predicting games leaving Game Pass next month are at 36 or 38 days left countdowns. Worth taking note of.
7 days are the current games leaving Game Pass which is weird because it includes Rise of Tomb Raider.
Could be an upcoming free weekend?

PC Gamer gave Anthem a 55.

 

Anthem, Fallout 76, and Battlefield V - Microsoft marketing deals for these games don't seem to be paying off.

 

I am enjoying BF5 though (got the digital deluxe for $22).

Phil keeps saying it they don't care where you play they just want you in the Xbox ecosystem and as far as dedicated hardware the words exactly out of Phil's mouth at E3 were they are working on "multiple" consoles. They still have a market share of dedicated hardware that they aren't abandoning anytime soon, they seemed pretty happy with the sales of the X and that is something that shouldn't of succeeded even a few years ago.

It's a likely an unexpected consequence of the exclusive drought. Counting on developers that would have been safe bets in the past bit them in the ass, not to mention PS4 generally locking down the biggest games for bundles now.

 

In that new ExpertZone group on Facebook they were promoting Fallout 76 and got some pretty negative comments. Like a week later there was an official "promotion" dropping the Fallout Xbox One X bundle by $100 which is still on going, and they had some passive aggressive comment about worrying the discount more than the bundled game.

I'm only going to buy the One Piece: Burning Blood Gold Pack because I have the disc version of the game.  It adds four new characters and a bunch of extra costumes.  If anyone is on the fence about One Piece: Burning Blood, it's a fighting game with a very weird first-person/third-person perspective.  If you're a fan of the One Piece franchise, you'll probably like it.  I found it very unwieldy to play when I first started.  Now, it's just OK.  Soulcalibur it is definitely not.

Just a quick FYI to everyone: Even though FandangoNOW promo codes usually (maybe always?) say they're just for rentals, I've always been able to use those codes for full purchases.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but it isn't giving me the option to use it toward the $5 movies. Maybe because I applied the code to my account first instead using the promo code option during checkout.

 

The Oreo email says the Game Pass codes are trials that can be stacked for 30 total days. I'll probably just hang onto whatever I can get for now.

Right now, Kroger Stores are offering a digital coupon to customers with a Kroger savings card where you can save $10 on a 3 month Xbox Live card that is regularly $24.99.  You have to add it to your digital coupons on the website.  Once added, the offer is good through 3/2/19.  This offer is probably also available for Ralph's customers and customers for the other affiliated grocery stores.  

 

https://www.kroger.com/

 

Yes, there are cheaper ways to get Live.  Blah, blah, blah.  And, yes, you're a hater.  Just passing along the information.
