So reducing PS Now price after so many years and putting "10+ million" selling games on the service, and putting a first party game on Steam, all has nothing to do with Microsoft's strategy. Lmao...sure.

PS Now was quite overpriced in the first place, so dropping it was the logical thing to do. Putting 10M+ selling games on the service after they have sold that much is different from putting games on the service day 1 and hoping for the best lol.

Market leader forced to reduce the price....:lol:

Even in its "deliberately half-assed" state, it is better than the trash it used to be. Thanks to Game Pass for making people realise how great a subscription service can be and what amazing value looks like. There might be hope for PS Now to develop into a half decent service. Eventually :lol:

[h=1]Alan Wake comes to Game Pass for its 10th anniversary[/h]


10 years later, Alan Wake is still giving us the creeps




Remedy Entertainment released its beloved, cult-classic,Alan Wake 10 years ago this Thursday, May 14. To celebrate the anniversary, Alan Wake will come to Xbox Game Pass on both Xbox One and PC on May 21.
Alan Wake is a third-person shooter heavily inspired by the novels of Stephen King and David Lynch’s acclaimed Twin Peaks TV series. It follows Alan Wake, a famous writer, as he visits a rural, Washington town for some alone time with his wife while he works to get past his own writer’s block. Things get strange very quickly, as Alan realizes the sleepy town has an infestation of dark shadows.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, a more action-focused Alan Wake game, came out two years later. Remedy then moved on to Quantum Break and later Control, one of Polygon’s best games of 2019.
While 10 years old, Alan Wake is definitely worth a replay in 2020 — especially if you already have Game Pass. First time subscribers can get Game Pass for a month for $1. After the first month, players can choose between the Xbox-only Game Pass for $9.99, PC-only Game Pass for $4.99 (usually $9.99), or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (both Xbox and PC) for $14.99.

[h=1]No Man’s Sky landing on Xbox Game Pass in June[/h]


More updates coming, too






Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get access to developer Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky when it lands on the service in June. Hello Games programmer Sean Murray made the announcement on the Xbox Wire blog.
No Man’s Sky was originally released on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC in 2016. The game came to Xbox One in 2018. Hello Games has consistently updated the exploration game since its 2016 release date. Because of that, No Man’s Sky has maintained a dedicated community of spacefarers, who do stuff like build tiny homes all over the procedurally-generated world.
The latest update in April — called Exo Mech — added a “fully controllable mechanical walker” to the game.
Today, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play Alan Wake, Cities: Skylines, and Minecraft Dungeons. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which gives players access to both console and PC games in the program, is $14.99 a month — but first-time subscribers can access for a month for $1 to start. The Xbox-only Game Pass is $9.99 a month, while the Xbox Game Pass for PC is available for a limited-time price of $4.99 a month. (It’s usually $9.99.)
Hello Games also said No Man’s Sky will get a Windows 10 PC version, on sale at the Windows PC store. It was previously available for PC on Steam. An exact release date hasn’t been announced.

Damn, son. Unprecedented territory in the console space.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate adding Project xCloud game streaming to subscription




Project xCloud comes to Game Pass Ultimate in September

Microsoft is adding a new perk to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the subscription that bundles Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, starting in September: Project xCloud. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate’s price of $14.99 per month isn’t changing, Microsoft said.

Project xCloud is Microsoft’s cloud-based streaming technology that lets users play Xbox Game Pass titles on phones and tablet devices. Microsoft announced Project xCloud in October 2018, and the service has been in public testing since September 2019 in some countries. Access to Project xCloud is limited to the U.S., Canada, South Korea, the U.K., and “many countries in western Europe,” according to an FAQ on the Xbox website. The streaming service is currently compatible with Android smartphones and tablets; Microsoft launched a limited test version of xCloud on iOS devices in February.

“With cloud gaming in Game Pass Ultimate, you will be able to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on your phone or tablet,” head of Xbox Phil Spencer said in a post on Xbox Wire. “And because Xbox Live connects all across devices, you can play along with the nearly 100 million Xbox Live players around the world. So when Halo Infinite launches, you and your friends can play together and immerse yourselves in the Halo universe as Master Chief—anywhere you go and across devices.”


More information about Project xCloud is available at the official Xbox website.

Phil Harrison once again confirms all Xbox first party games for the next couple of years will be cross-gen.

https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/07/16/players-first-you-are-the-future-of-gaming/


We want every Xbox player to play all the new games from Xbox Game Studios. That’s why Xbox Game Studios titles we release in the next couple of years—like Halo Infinite—will be available and play great on Xbox Series X and Xbox One. We won’t force you to upgrade to Xbox Series X at launch to play Xbox exclusives.

I don't see a problem with this. Save for a couple odd games that studios are forced to make to drive new console sales, next-gen doesn't hit its stride until a couple of years later any way.
