    Yes... Sure its "cheaper" in some way but it feels like you only got limited time to Play the games. Knowing it could be delisted and you never were possible to Play some of them would make me feel like i have wasted some of the monthly subscription... Having the game right there next to you gives some kinf of guarantee you can Play it anytime you want...

    I had no reason to get this in the first place, but now if they're gonna be removing games willy-nilly then I'm avoiding this like Yaris

    I have very limited gaming time these days so subscribing to a service that could make games I've started unavailable is beyond useless to me. I still have bean-dived games from a year ago!

    Play D4 before it goes away. Such a fantastic game and easy completion. Hopefully one day a sequel will be made to it.

    I have a question... I dont want to start a "war" now... Just thinking about a Situation...

    BUT... Just imagine...

    In one year or two... Microsoft decide to shut down this gamepass Programm.
    They earn enough Money by all subscribers that pay monthly.

    Everything is gone. All youve pay for is "gone" because you cant download it anymore.

    Would that not made you angry!? I mean you are spending a lot Money during this time just to sit there with nothing in your Hands... On the other Hand you could have buy the games you want to Play for the Money thats gone to the monthly subscription.

    This is what makes me to not want to subscribe...

    Thanks for any answer and i am really interested in what others are thinking about this toast
    (yes i know my english is horribly, sorry for that)
    As a rental service you’re purposely paying less money to get the full experience without actually owning the game. This appeals to me as once I’m done with a game I rarely want to play it again. I don’t want 100’s of physical games. I think it would be cool to have a couple 100 games that I can touch and stack up but realistically to me that’s just taking up space.

    The value of gamepass is worth it to me. It’s cheaper paying $10 a month than buying all the games I’ll play that the service currently offers. I will say this isn’t a service I will be paying for every month. I currently only have a couple more games I want to play and then I’ll be done for while until they add some more. Or if I want to play Crackdown 3 day 1 I can finish it in month or two and only pay $10-$20 rather than $60.

    Ah shit. Of the games on this list, I want to complete D4, Streets of Rage and Virtua Fighter but with my overloaded schedule, I don't think I'll complete them all in time.
    then complete them it would literally take a few hours

    It’s no so much that people don’t understand how subscription services work, but that they can’t comprehend how anyone would not have the same view of something as their own. Where one person sees value for money, another person does not.

    I love banana milkshakes, but I know people who hate them. Should I make it my life’s work to convince them banana milkshakes are the best, or just accept we all have different tastes and be thankful there are many milkshake flavours to choose between.

    Dude...i find this whole argument offensive against people with lactose intolerance, and vegans...
    Also...dont write "people." Thats offensive too...who are you to assume that i see myself as a person (obviously this post is pointed at ME, and ME only) maybe i see myself as a horse, or a radish...please have that in mind next time you write on the internet.

    Saying the word salty doesn't make you King Of The Hill. This is an awful idea, an awful premise and exactly what I'd expect from Microsoft. Salt yourself.

    It's pretty simple tbh, if you don't like renting don't buy the game pass. They made it pretty clear but I guess people can't even read anymore.

    another reason to stay away from digital. they shoot themselves in the foot with these delistings. both from the store and gamepass. gamepass is only about 6 month old and they're allready delisting... someone at m$ must really love the DEL button on his/her keyboard...
    They said from the very beginning that they were going to remove games and put in new ones. If this is news to you, then you're not paying attention.

    This is one of the reasons I will never subscribe to Game Pass. That and the fact that it is too much like Netflix - a couple of gems to choose from but mostly old dross that I wouldn't touch with a shitty stick.
    because it rotates titles to keep itself fresh and constantly introduce new while removing old? derp.
    Yes, it seems people like you do not understand. Some of us just prefer to actually own something, rather than owning temporary access to something. What is so difficult to understand?
    What's difficult to understand is why people keep bitching about a rental service not acting like a retail store.

    Want to buy instead of rent? Cool, do that. This service isn't aimed at you in any way. Those people who would rather have access to a large game collection for way less than they could get it by buying games will use it.

    You're not affected in any way whatsoever by this service operating as it has been stated it will from day one. Why you guys are complaining about it is beyond me.
    Did you read the bit where I didn't complain? That was my first post, and I was just giving my point of view, which I'm sure is shared by many other people who prefer buying things.
    This entire comment thread is basically "If you don't like Game Pass for any reason at all, you are therefore complaining and therefore stupid and should shut up because people should all have the same opinion"
    What a joke of a comment thread this has been! laugh

    Simple. All you do is RENT the games. if you don't like it (and I don't) then don't buy into it. Simple.

    Not sure what this is about but you've perhaps overlooked that they launched Game Pass a while ago. When they did so they said right up front that games would be removed. If this is news... it shouldn't be.
