Earlier this week Microsoft announced the Xbox Game Pass program. Coming in at $10.95 per month, the service will offer gamers a library of titles to download as they please. Like Netflix, the list of available games will grow and change over time.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen services like this. PlayStation Now is offered by Sony, allowing users to stream PS3 games to their PS4. OnLive was a cloud-based service, which allowed subscribers to stream games in a similar fashion. This week, we ask you:
Do you think we’ll be seeing more Netflix-like solutions for games in the future?
As internet speeds get faster, the idea of downloading an entire game – or streaming one – is less of a concern. If these models prove popular, do you think we'll see consoles transitioning to offer games as services, instead of products? Or do you think one-time purchases will reign supreme?
