    Its interesting because MLB typically sells 1-2m copies a year. So we could see a big shift for MLB profits.

    I also wonder if this paves the way for some other sony games to hit game pass. Can you imagine Horizon or Days gone hitting PC game pass ? That would be really interesting !

    I personally don't see this paving the way for Sony 1P titles hitting pc GP at all. Remember that pc GP is part of GPU.
    Sony will happily take steam money, but anything directly related to xbox I think is doubtful.

    I think it will give publishers another vector of data.

    I could see MLB xbox matching or even surpassing ps revenue though, due to GP.
    Due to the fact that it wasn't a double digit seller anyway.
    That alone would be an even crazier outcome.

    I don't think sony will care if they put on 2-3 year old playstation games locked behind PC game pass as long as they don't show up on the xbox itself.

    I've had Eastshade knocking about on my harddrive for a while. Owl artist adventure sounding worth a go. The voice acting is really off-putting. Might be that you encounter a kid voice actor early on. Uninstall!

    Looks like I might have to buy those Disney games if they are only on the Cloud. :/

    EDIT: Already owned Rush. Disneyland Adventure is on sale for $8.

    FYI, check XBDeals.net for history on lowest price before buying.

    Also, oops. Game Pass subscribers are not supposed to buy games. We hate paying for stuff. I better cancel my subscription.

    I think the games are already / still on Game Pass, but what is new is being added to xCloud?

    Yes, the games were already on console, but as they just said Cloud only, I was confused if they were leaving console or just being added to the Cloud. I decided to not bet against it & took advantage of the sale. Kids play it a lot & they got real cranky the last time something they played left the service. I've done that a few times already & expect it to continue.
