But muh concurrent years subbed count...

Unless that's only really tracked on one's 360 XBL profile, then, yeah. But a seamless option would be nice.

Gears 5 comes out in like a week. Is there like zero hype for this? Or have I just stopped following the sites and channels that care about Xbox stuff so I don't hear about it?

Nintendo Life is promoting Gears 5 for some reason. I expected August/September to have ads for Astral Chain, Daemon X Machina, Link's Awakening, DQXI S, etc. but instead it's been Cyberpunk, Gears 5 and Telling L!es.

Yeah like redd214 says, I doubt Nintendolife decides which ads show (unless it's non-google ads they've organised themselves).

I've seen loads of Xbox youtube ads in the last month and 90% of them have been for Cyberpunk. Don't think I've seen any for Gears. Lol they really want you to remember that Cyberpunk is on Xbox.

I see ads for plenty of games here & elsewhere.... XBox certainly keeps on about Gears 5, anyway

Solid group of games coming soon to game pass

Also Gears 5 seems to be reviewing very well. Though I didn't really enjoy the MP beta I'm liking what I'm reading about the campaign.

Dead Cells eh? I've been keeping an eye on that one.

Gears 5 is at 86 on opencritic.

Nice to see a good Xbox exclusive that isn't a Forza game. I still haven't played Gears 4 though so I'll wait til this one is in the bargain bucket.

@Dezzy it's on game pass, you can get 2 months for 2 bucks, how much more bargain bin can it get lol

I prefer to own physical copies when possible. Especially if it's a big file size. Xbox games tend to drop in price quite a lot anyway so I bet it'll be about half the current price in a years time.

Why especially if it’s a big file size? Physical or digital, the whole game has to install on the HDD anyway. Same with PS4.

Nothing like buying a physical copy of a large game, only to have to install a day one “patch“ that essentially replaces half or more of the game (or better yet, is practically a full reinstall). XB1 game discs are nothing more then physical license keys at this point. They don't really save you any install time.

@Dezzy you have to install the whole game whether physical or digital nowadays so isn't file size kind of irrelevant

Gears 5 ads on Nintendo Life just got one-upped by Sakurai pitching Banjo-Kazooie on XB1 during the Banjo & Kazooie fighter demonstration.

Not if you live in the countryside where the internet speed is often terrible.

The place I'm currently living is fine, but my parent's house is incredibly bad cos they live in the middle of nowhere. If you need a 50GB download to play something, you basically can't play it whilst living there. It would take like over a week to download that.

@Dezzy just preload it lol. All good man hope you enjoy it whenever you get to play it!
