This is such great value.
As I said earlier, even if you don't want to buy a game on Windows Store, I reckon we'll see conveniently scheduled discounts on Steam and GOG for games rolling out of Game Pass.The only downside I can think off for GP is that if a game is getting removed while you're midthrough then yeah that sucks, But at least it gives you the option to buy at a discount.
You can change the default save location for Windows Store games. Just go to Settings->System->Storage->Change where new content is saved and set the drive you want "Apps" to save to.One thing I really dislike about Windows Store that they haven't fixed is if your game comes under a certain filesize (I think it's less than 10gb) then it doesn't ask you where you want to install it; it just assumes that location will be the C drive, The thing is, my C Drive is an SSD, which is the last place I want to put a load of small games. They'll load fast enough from my mechanical drive!
Of course you can move them after the fact from the Windows control panel, but they really should ask for the install location for every game.
Makes me be wary of future PC game purchases as they may suddenly be on game pass. Especially the one-and-done SP games. Despite owning Vampyr on Steam, I may just use the game pass version for the Xbox achievements.I'll be trying Abzu, ReCore and The Surge for a start.
The value really is great.
The current chat is shared as a thread but only those participating in the chat will show up in there. I believe it's only accessible for folks with full member status.. but I might be wrong. I'm still a junior and haven't tried, it's just something I remember someone mentioning a while back.Weird place to ask but the Microsoft conference thread is locked for me, but people are still posting. Did I miss a thing?
$4.99/month is the price during the beta, following which it'll switch to full price - no idea how long the 'beta' is though.So, when I look at the purchase page (USA), it says $1 with ($4.99/month) crossed out, implying that's the usual price.
In the conference, they said pc game pass is $10/mo. What is the real price going to be?Discover your next favorite game.

well it's closed right now they're only active during livestreams ... but the Bethesda one starts soon, so be thereAh, my bad. Guess I should have followed up after I read that.
Thanks for the heads up though! I'll definitely try to pop into chat soon!
At least the ones that were already on the Windows Store seem to be UWP still. (Tried Abzu and ReCore).A question if you please: Are the games from the MS pass UWP or win32?
Yeah, the lack of that is one of the many things that are a bit stupid.Windows Pro 1809, no xbox beta app
Games that I've tried (and working). Downloaded through the win store:
Sea of Thieves
Games not working:
Mutant Year Zero (needs 1903)
Imperator Rome (needs 1903)
Metro Exodus (needs 1903)
Shenmu 1+2 (needs 1903)
1906 isn't available for me though. I remember reading that there is a problem with AMD RAID Drivers, so the updated was postponed.
I'm a bit dissapointed because of Mutant Year Zero and Imperator, but I'm not complaining. It was just 1€ after all, but they need to figure this "people are forced to sit on different windows versions" stuff out! Some people being left behind because of not working windows updates is a no go, once this starts costing 10€+.
They also need to implement a "show all my game pass titles" function in win store asap.
