While admittedly unlikely, depending on how MS pays devs, I could completely see MK11 coming to GamePass at launch. You have to consider...

* That is guaranteed money. Either they get some kind of flat fee or, similar to Kindle Unlimited, an amount for each hour played. And if it is available on GamePass, you can imagine that is a lot of people that will put in a lot of hours.

* It puts the game in the hands of a lot of players at launch, many of which you probably figure wouldn't have bought it yet. This is an excellent way to spread word of mouth and promote the game outside of usual avenues.

* Likely, several of those playing the game on GamePass will pay for DLC. They will have the mindset that "Hey, I didn't have to pay extra for the game anyway..." DLC is basically pure profit margin for devs from what I read.

* I saw a story somewhere that people that play a game on GamePass are actually more likely to buy a game if they like it. They may bank on GamePass members buying the game to permanently add it to their collection.

 

Still, it is very unlikely, but I could see why they would do it.

I just don't buy it. Mortal Kombat does not need any help getting more casual players on board. I would expect in this specific case that MK would lose sales to GamePass, as I'm fairly certain a lot of buyers only play the game for a week or so to see the fatalities, then stop playing when they go online and get absolutely destroyed.

On Bloomy's last scan Just Cause 4 didn't seem to line up with any sale dates.

Based on the timing, I smell a free play weekend incoming, with the usual accompanying discount.

Can't say I was a fan of any show he was involved in but he seemed like a good dude.    :(

Anyone else not having achievements pop during game? They still show up as completed, but they don't show up during gameplay.

Are you part of the Xbox Insider program? I'm in the Alpha Ring and was experiencing the same problem.  In fact I wasn't getting any notifications, no cheevos, online, messages, etc. An update last week fixed the issue for me.

Nope, but I did a hard reset and they started popping like normal.

I agree that losing an hour of sleep sucks and DST is antiquated and needs to be done away with for good.

Biggquis is the winner of the PUBG digital game code!!! I'll send you a PM when I get home within a few hours.

My bet is MK9 hitting game pass. That would be excellent if MK11 comes day one, but it seems highly unlikely as its not a MS 1st party title. Prove me wrong MS and WB. Make it come to GP

MK11 launch on game pass would be amazing, but seems really unlikely.  MKX sold 5 million copies in its first few months.  Warner Bros doesn't need the game pass money.

 

MK9 would still be cool.  9 has a great roster, and the gameplay in MK11 looks to be Injustice slow.

Kinda bummed my fiancé already got one of the Ark expansions - she plays it a TON with friends and the season pass bundle is a good deal. That said, she can deal with Scorched Earth for $8 for now.

Strikethrough not working. Oh well. On a semi-mobile version of the site I think.

Edit: Aaaaand gone. I’ll try to be more creative next time. Also, how does one do strikethrough text?

Was hoping for a big discount on Shogun Tactics, that's one of those PSN sale regulars in the sub $10 category so hard to pull the trigger at $30.

That game will be on sale often. Just be patient and you’ll get it for $20 or less.


True. I did get a copy from GameStop but I’ve been playing Paladins and it’s fun too. I’m not sure which to go with.

Not that I was actually considering at $30, but Battlefield V only has 6 story-based achievements out of 21. Granted, you can get in one go and end at 355/1000.

For comparison, Battlefied 1 campaign achievements totalled 570/1000.

I doubt this could happen, but Microsoft gamepass needs more exposure and I think MK11 could be the perfect game to launch on Xbox gamepass. WB will still get millions of copies sold on ps4, switch and pc. Also the game would most likely be on gamepass for 3 months max, at that point most who enjoy can buy it at a sale price.

I've got the disc version still factory sealed that I bought at Target on clearance for $5.98 back in January.  Obviously, I haven't tried it yet, but Rivals is a pretty fun game (I own it on PS3 and PS4 already).  The game that's just called Need for Speed apparently requires the user to be online to enjoy it which is stupid. 

 

But what kills me with EA is that they refuse to discount the DLC on games like Mass Effect: Andromeda and Need for Speed: Payback in a logical fashion.  It's less for me to rebuy both games that I already own with the DLC than it is for me to just buy the DLC separately.  Insane!
