Soon Sea of Thieves will be releasing, and if you have Xbox Gamepass you will have options on how you play it. You can either buy it the traditional way or if you pay $10 a month you can play it with the many other games. But, is this a dangerous way to do things? See year after year DVD/Blu ray sales drop little by little as Netflix and Hulu get bigger and bigger. We are at the point some movies never even come out on DVD, they simply go to a streaming service and that is it. Can this happen to gaming? A few years ago all games came out on disk and digital. A few years before that All games came out on disk and a couple on digital. Now days some actually only come out on digital, its simply cheaper.
However, in the future will it be more cost efficient for companies to simply charge money every month to let you play the games they choose for as long as they choose? When you don’t own a game you have no rights to it and they have no responsibilities to you. They don’t have to worry about you pre-ordering games or you getting upset and boycotting over pay to win practices. you will pay your money either way every month as Sony or Microsoft pays them every month to let them have their game. While now it seems cool to play a new game this way, is it possible this is how gaming in the future will be done and the days of buying games are slowly going to die? Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
