Jason Clement posted a article in MicrosoftThe Xbox Game Pass got a major boost today as it was announced that Xbox One exclusives will now come to the service day and date with their release. The first three games to get this treatment will be Sea of Thieves (coming March 20), State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3. Xbox's Phil Spencer also clarified that this applies to every future Xbox One exclusive, making this a pretty big coup for Xbox and Microsoft in general, given that PlayStation and Nintendo don't have any equivalents to this yet. As a reminder, Xbox Game Pass gives players access to 100 games for $9.99 a month as long as you're subscribed. The list of games is rotated regularly as well, making way for new and different games. Given that Xbox's biggest exclusives generally cost $59.99 at release, this could be a game changer for monetizing the way people pay for games if you can access them for only $9.99 a month now. It could also hint at Xbox's strategy for their next generation console as well. Source: Major Nelson What are your thoughts on Xbox Game Pass including future Xbox One exclusives?
