    It is simple business. The game pass has a budget of game it has available. If we want new games, the older games have to go. if you cannot finish RE6 in one year, it is no one elses fault.

    I imagine that soon RE4 and later, RE7 will join the program. so they need to get rid of RE6.

    the issue they have created for themselves by adding MS new releases, is that those take a higher % of the budget, meaning less older games

    If anyone wants to do some RE6 MP let me know. I have a hard copy but for those of you about to lose it feel free to hit me up.

    I highly recommend Bard's Gold, it's a quick and easy completion and I thought it was a lot of fun.

    I downloaded Mad Max before it came off and I still have access to it, I think as long as your membership is active and you keep the game installed it's still playable.
    I had nba2k16 access for a while, but it eventually fell off. It seems to vary, but you will indeed lose access to it, unless you own it in some other way.
    Yes, I know I am.

    if you get game pass instead of always buying new games it is totally worth it. but we always have to buy new games, so we never get around to game pass games

    Add 16 games. Remove 32. Give 8 days notice. Can't believe people fell for this.

    What's disturbing is there's NO discount when I goto buy it digitally.

    When they removed that big batch of games, it was all games that were part of the initial lineup. All this means is that at least some games seem to have 1 year deals to be in the pass, which isn't entirely crazy.

    The 3 games being removed at the end of the month were all games added the month after game pass started. So, again, it's several games than seem to have a 1-year 'contract'.

    Yeah, I finally decided to try out Game Pass thanks to the discount on the 6 month membership. I’ve noticed several games that have news stories of being removed, aren’t on the list on this site, but are available on Game Pass.

    Roundabout is another one that seems to have been sneaked back on.

    It’s a ploy to get you to love them enough to buy them, I bought Dirt Rally when it went down to $12 and I thought it would leave gamepass.

    I just started 98% of games I hadn't started yet, including the ones I was interested in that were available via Game Pass. Glad to see none of those are on the list. Already owned RE6.

    What do u think about the game pass ?
    I think the nice thing about it is that it's easy to jump in for a month when you want to play something, and then let the subscription run out when you're busy with other stuff.

    Yeah, it's a bit rough if a game you're playing is announced to be departing with only a week or so left to finish it, and I think it was bad optics to dump a whole 25 games at once at the end of May, but as has been said, that was probably just contracts expiring from the initial group of games, and I doubt there will be that sort of mass exodus in the future. If it holds out that most games will stay on GamePass for at least a year or more, that will allow everyone to anticipate which games should be leaving soon, and should give everyone plenty of time for the games they really are interested in.

    Plus, if you're willing to spend five minutes a day with Bing, you can easily earn enough rewards points in about 2-3 weeks from that to pay for a month of GamePass, so (assuming you already have a gold subscription) you can have access to the whole library without paying for the GamePass at all.

    Somehow this news was already out a couple of weeks ago.
    I saw someone mention it in his activity feed. Exact the same games. It must have been two weeks ago I think.

    I am still undecided about Game Pass. It takes me that long to start or finish any game I buy that I doubt it would be worthwhile for me.
    I feel the same way actually so you're not alone in that regard.
    I PLAY TO HAVE FUN!!!! I do tend to play solo most of the time but always willing to play with others if they have time for that of course. TA ROCKS!!

    Come on, it's $1/month every now and then - they keep offering this on the main page of the Xbox One - and you have access to so many games. I don't understand the constant debate of if it's worth it or not.

    Yup, at first I was kinda angry because it wasn't enough time for me to complete the game, but other games are accessible too. On the other hand I never allowed GP to expire, lets see what happens when I do this month. Got the 6 months on discount but will activate it later as I wont be playing that much.

    All three of those were added on July 1st, 2017. So for some games it seems to be a 1-year stay in Game Pass.

    If you've completed those and want to get a head-start on games that may be leaving at the end of next month I'd recommend getting started on some of Dead Rising 3, DiRT Rally, LIMBO, Pharaonic, So Many Me, Ultratron, and Metal Slug XX.
    Good luck finishing Dirt Rally lol.

    OT: I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall. Last month didn't they announce a small amount of games initially and then they came with another announcement that included like 20 games that were leaving?
