In his appearance on Major Nelson Radio, Xbox head Phil Spencer said he discussed a little bit more about the recently announced Xbox Game Pass. During the podcast Spencer noted he would love to see first shipped games on the platform and even compared the Xbox Game Pass to Netflix. Stating..
“There is an opportunity here to not just be about games that have already shipped. I would actually like to see this grow into a program where you can see frontline games/ first shipped games come into Xbox Game Pass as a way to get distributed”.
“I think we have seen this in the TV Space with Netflix. At first Netflix was all about movies and TV Shows that I might have missed. Now some of the best TV out there is being made as a Netflix original”.
