Game Pass can’t stay this good forever

When Microsoft announced Game Pass in June 2017, another monthly subscription service was headed for dramatic extinction. It was MoviePass, which reduced its subscription price from $50 to $9.95 per month. Suddenly, subscribers could see a movie every day of the month for less than the cost of a single ticket in most cities. It was obviously too good to be true, and millions of people happily enjoyed it while MoviePass hemorrhaged money and tried to heavily weaponize the movie industry in a deal that would save it from it- same.

It was great while it lasted.
