This week Microsoft announced that from now on the exclusive games of Xbox One will arrive at Xbox Game Pass on its release date, starting with titles like Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3 in addition to the future Halo, Forza, and Gears of War titles.
The news has been well received by the users of the console and subscribers of the service, and Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has also spoken out about this movement but has already found his first opposition. According to reports by GamesMarket, Gameware KG has reacted to the news by eliminating the Xbox One consoles from its sale list.
According to this media, Gameware does not understand the need to sell these consoles “that give zero benefits and only spend if Microsoft is the only one that will benefit from the sales of games.” The company, which has been in business since 1989 and has somewhere around 375,000 consumers, explains that “if you want to do business alone, they should do business on their own.”
Xbox Game Pass, which is not linked to Xbox Live Gold, will allow us to enjoy games like Halo 5: Guardians, Banjo-Kazooie, Gears of War: Judgment, Sunset Overdrive, Dark Void, WWE 2K16 or Borderlands- among others -, which will be downloaded to our hard drive. The payment of this monthly subscription will offer access to the catalog of more than a hundred games, among which from now, we will find premieres and exclusive releases on Xbox One.
Unlike EA Access – also available exclusively on Xbox One -, which only allows you to play EA titles, Xbox Game Pass will present video games from the most varied publishers and developers such as 2K, 505 Games, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Capcom, Codemasters, Depp Silver, Focus Home Interactive, Sega, SNK, THQ Nordic and Warner Bros.
