We’ve certainly heard a lot about Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus in the past few months. While PlayStation is in the process of updating its service (which we spoke about at length about on the Bitcast today), Xbox Game Pass has become a staple for many in the past couple of years. While we are generally very positive on the service, and have spoken about that extensively, there are some who still have their reservations.
Speaking with our own Luke Lohr, former Xbox Vice President of Game Publishing, Ed Fries, shared his thoughts on his time with Microsoft and Xbox, the current state of the Xbox brand and leadership, Game Pass, and more. Of particular note, Fries says that Game Pass “makes him nervous” and “scares him.”
It’s an insightful interview and we highly recommend giving it a watch or listen via the links below to gain full context of his thoughts!
