    Bruh, most of those games in the pass are from GwG. I'll pass on the pass.

    I expect games with gold to disappear when this launches......
    Microsoft confirmed that won't be happening.

    I hope they dont shaft the non-American market again by not correctly pricing this like they do with every single game on the Store e.g. $20=£20=€20. #Microsoftcantdomaths
    One does not simply stop playing xbox

    most of them were already on GwG in the past so no real reason to grab it right now, perhaps in a while... who knows

    I just don't understand why they would cancel Scalebound. Like that game looked like it would have been really good.
    Then they give us State of Decay 2... Really? Crackdown 3? Alright (shrug).
    Did anyone actually want Halo Wars 2? (obviously enough to warrant a sequel, albeit many years down the road)
    They had a new IP, developed it somewhat, only to scrap it and give us sequels to games that could have just as easily been stand alones (State of Decay, Halo Wars) or another chapter in a game that might have already run its course (Crackdown, Dead Rising). I know, these games could turn out to be substantial hits, but they could also be horrendous duds. idk. When the dust settles later this year we'll see where these games stand

    Remember, this alpha game pass is FREE to those of us with access to it. Of course they're going to have these types of games in it roll

    Too expensive to validate its worth. So I can play it if the game is rotated in, but if it's leaving I have to pay again for the download to my library? Pass, I'm much too selective in games and don't like being taken advantage of to enter into this.
    My thoughts too. Not worth it if the game gets removed before I finish it

    "the more rigorous ID@Xbox program"

    Don't make me laugh. Although there are some great games that have been released through this platform there are others that are beyond a joke in terms of how poor they are. It makes you wonder how some of them make it through the program.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!
