We're now at a point where packaged sales in the UK for Microsoft titles are a tiny amount and no longer important. In its first week, Gears of War 3 sold 20x more packaged units than Gears 5 and Gears of War 4 sold 4.5x. Digital Download and Game Pass are the majority by far.

I honestly think even Microsoft might be a bit shocked by how low packaged software is for Gears 5. Whilst UK packaged software + full game downloads of Gears 5 are much lower than prior entries in the series, the addition of a Game Pass version has been a real game changer.

Yeah I don't understand why you would pay £10-15 more for digital

Not only spencer said that, sales insiders and other devs also. And that was also the case. But Gears 5 marketing was all based on gamepass with deals and trailers, billboards. You could even play 4 days early with gamepass ultimate.

So their original vision for the online Xbox one was basically a whole generation off?

Online only is still a awful system idea, digital only is however the future for Xbox for sure

Well for those in the know Game Pass was advertised for what, a couple bucks as a trial? The gen has been quite pitiful for Microsoft but that's a deal hard to pass, so credit where credit is due. And of course digital in general. No pants required!

when you can play a game for 1€ is stupid to spend 70-90€ in the same game 🤷‍♂️ I'm not surprised at all that is ruining Xbox Games sales, it's unteanable that investment in games when you're giving them literally for a tip.

4.5x less tha Gears 4? Gameindustry says "In second spot is Microsoft's Gears 5. The game also sold less than its predecessor -- about 25% of what Gears 4 managed at launch" It´s because Gears 5 sold more Ultimate units?
