Nintendo called the DS their third pillar, not to replace the GameBoy line, too . Anyway a nothing burger, but that is what we get with new threads on anything these people say no-matter what they say .
The fact that they have to come out and say this pretty much tells you that this is not the case. Personally my Series X is for gamepass only (and my 360 physical games); I don't plan to ever buy a new physical game on XBOX ever again. I also might not maintain my gamepass sub year round.
people discussing the viability of Game Pass (numbers here numbers there) when in actuality the big issue is going to be how Game pass (and services like that) are going to affect Game Desing or even 'Game Business model' itself.
