Game Pass will not mean the end of game sales, guarantees Microsoft

According to Phil Spencer, Microsoft wants to continue giving consumers multiple options

While the Game Pass subscription system is increasingly important to Microsoft’s future, it should not keep system-exclusive games in the future🇧🇷 According to Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox division, the company will continue to sell its games on the Xbox Store (and places like Steam) and will not force anyone to subscribe to the service🇧🇷

In an interview with The Verge, Spencer stated that the company wants to continue giving players as many options as possible🇧🇷 According to him, while for some people the subscription model may be more interesting, it is necessary to respect those who prefer to invest in games independently.

We don’t have this view of everyone paying us $15 a month

🇧🇷We don’t have this view of everyone paying us $15 a month”, explained the executive. 🇧🇷We think subscription is an interesting business model for certain types of games and for certain consumers.“, continued. According to him, options like Game Pass help people discover new titles and broaden their tastes🇧🇷

Game Pass benefits developers

Spencer also claims that subscription services are good for developers, making it easier for them to reach consumers. 🇧🇷That’s always going to be a part of the business, in my view. I think people buying and owning their games is going to be an important part of the business for many, many years to come.🇧🇷

For the executive who runs the Xbox division, the most important thing is that people have access to the games produced by it, regardless of how this is done. 🇧🇷We love it when people buy your games. It’s fantastic. We also like it when they do a subscription. The thing we’re really trying to figure out is can we get more people to play games and make it easier for everyone.🇧🇷

Curiously, Sony was responsible for stating that Game Pass currently has a base of approximately 30 million subscribers🇧🇷 According to the owner of the PlayStation, the system has everything to become the dominant option in the market, especially if the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft is approved
