I'm still not a believer in Gamepass. I have a massive backlog, I buy games and trade them in etc. Gamepass isn't like Spotify for me where I can consume and try a ton of music. Where as with games you have games that are like 30 hours long, you can be playing a multiplayer games for 100 hours etc. I just don't see how a person who has other hobbies, a family etc has time to play more than a handful of games a year. Music, TV and Movies are quicker to consume in comparison to games.
This is the sneaky part of our discussion that most people don't want to have here. The idea that comparing GamePass to Netflix as a 1-to-1 is flawed for the reasons K KAL2006 stated. It's just different and that's okay. But this reason (amongst others) are way GamePass can't out grow the console. Unless they are looking to completely change their business model.
And if they are willing to do that, I can't consider that "outgrowing" consoles. It's just changing away from the console business.
