I only like Tesco cake. Sainsbury's cake is rubbish.


Urgh. I only eat cake from indie bakeries.

I hope it's sustainable vegan cake.


Nope, it's got all the meats in it.

Such a philistine. It’s not about how much you eat. It’s about how much you enjoy it.

Are you insinuating I'm a PS fan boy? :lol:

Superb :lol:

I know brand allegiances will always be a thing, but I never thought I'd see the day where a fan of one gaming company goes into a thread for another gaming company and argues about - of all things - financial forecasts and sustainability. If you like Brand X then stick to Brand X things, don't get worked up about someone else liking and supporting Brand Y.

If you think I have an allegiance to any company you are mistaken. I thought the sustainability of subscription models in videogames was worthy of discussed, clearly I was mistaken.

I'm pretty sure Moggy has just made that up but I've seen him pull some magic with the forum search engine so it's probably strawberry floating real.

I've tried indie bakeries. Although a small section of their stuff is good, I don't like their other stuff. Plus their chocolate chips are weird shapes, and their design is borrowed from another company's chocolate chips.

Subscription models are only as sustainable as long as there's interest. To keep that interest, there has to be new things added to it. For something as long-term as Game Pass (which is going to be forever considering Microsoft seem to be basing their entire ecosystem around it), they need new stuff at all times, which they are achieving so far. Buying new studios ensure they have plenty more games to go onto their own service, which is what they need to make it a more attractive proposition. With xCloud being folded into Game Pass from September, you don't even need an Xbox console to play (though that opens a whole different discussion about personal experiences with latency and such). Once xCloud hits PCs, that reach will onlygrow further, as even those who don't own a gaming PC can jump in on what's being offered. I feel Microsoft have been building up brand recognition on the Switch purely for this reason.

As for the numbers - we will never know. All we can do is trust what those in the business tell us. And if a publisher of indie games is saying that Game Pass improved their brand recognition and sales, I'd trust in them to know their own numbers.

I almost didn't click through because of how he numbered that first tweet (and every subsequent tweet (until the 23rd)).

Yes! Finally some sucker took the bait. Microsoft are going to fail and should stick to selling Windows and you you're going to fail too because Sony rule and will soon buy Nintendo and take over gaming.

I understand almost none of that but it makes me excited for next gen, feels like a much bigger technological leap than we got last time.

Microsoft are pulling out of the console business.

With Sony rumoured to have their next event on 6th August and prices/release date presumably announced I wonder how long MS will wait for their August Hardware/Services event. Rumours are late August.

Some possibilities for the event -

Lockhart announcement
Release dates
Prices
Xbox Live Gold status - Free?
Xcloud - name change? More countries? Pricing other than GPU? XB1 insider testing? iPhone?
Halo MP - F2P?
The Initiatives game announced - Perfect Dark?
Battletoads
Wasteland 3 Launch trailer
Sea of Thieves update
3rd parties
Game Pass
