    • Indeed, one side effect or unintended consequence if you like (though perhaps intentional?) of these monthly subscriptions is that the price of what used to be standard, boxed, physical games, do seem to be lowering at a significant rate, so if you've got any old PS4 or Xbox One games (soon to apply to PS5 and Xbox One X games possibly) that you don't play any more, then it might be worth considering selling them, while they are still worth even a few pounds. Of course, if you don't subscribe to these services and still buy physical games, chances are games will be a lot cheaper, and become more affordable at a quicker rate, so if you intend to buy one or two games throughout the year and don't mind waiting, then you probably won't be paying much for them. Though I suppose if you only play one or two games a year, you could sign up for a trial of one of these services, play the games you wanted to check out, and then cancel. Either way, modern physical games are seemingly becoming almost disposable on Xbox and Playstation platforms with the introduction of these services. It's nice to have options, but at the rate things seem to be going, physical games could well be phased out, at least on Xbox and Playstation, with the only way to get them being limited print runs for those that still want them. Personally, I'm not too bothered any more, I've collected games for a while, and I've often advocated for physical games in the past but if you don't form that much of an attachment to modern games, in the same way as a lot of older games, then they might as well just be cheap and accesible. Thousands of digital distractions at your finger tips, all on a pay-monthly service... I can see the appeal, even if it's something I'm unlikely to invest in.
    • Trying to sell Green Hill Zone with candle propoganda is bloody hilarious!
    • Purely anecdotal, but I'm in the last quarter of Final Fantasy 13, and even on GamePass, it still holds no value. Utterly awful game.
    • @Cube Any chance of a review of these candles? https://www.segashop.co.uk/collections/candier-candles  
    • One thing that always bothers me about subscription services is that games lose all value. Not immediately gripped on the game? Oh well, it was "free" so just move on to the many other games you have access to  When you spend £50 upwards on a game (or less if you get it after a few months), you're more likely to give it a chance to get going.  I wonder how many great games have been passed over or received less attention because they didn't immediately present their best content at the beginning of the game. Also, if people aren't paying for a game (apart from the fraction of the subscription price that goes to the developer), game developers will make their money elsewhere. Spoilers: more "pursuasive" microtransactions. I do like gamepass from a consumer point of view, but I do wonder what the future of gaming looks like when/if it becomes the norm.
