    So you have to hunt animals in this for food and perks like ammo pouches and so on. Small animals are ok but the larger will fight back, so risk/reward for perks and gear over scarce ammo supplies. Not sure it sounds very Resident Evil to me.

    Iíve never seen a more complicated way of announcing a demo, I literally couldnít keep up with it as it was announced.

    Apparently this may be coming to gamepass on day one.

    Cant see that, it would cost MS an outrageous amount of money for that one

    Wouldnt mind being proved wrong though.

    Still a lot cheaper than making games. It seems to be the strategy they're going for so I wouldn't be surprised.

    I hope theyíve not forgotten that it was the back to basics approach that helped 7 be so good after the bloated shite before it

    Yep. This game has some odd frame rate choices.

    Does make it sound like the village area will be embracing open world tropes...

    Sounds great to me. The hunting.

    Bit miffed if this is another Xbox Gamepass exclusive though, while us PC Gamepass subscribers have to pay. In particular since you can't buy the bloody console, anyhow.

    Hmm if on gamepass I'll be conflicted. Play on my 1x for no added cost, or pay full whack for ps5 copy...

    Do you mean that the demo is only on Gamepass?

    Really tricky decision.
    Isn't it just a rumour (gamepass)? I'd be surprised.

    I imagine it will be one game pass at some point, I suppose it depends on how long you want to wait.

    @Armoured_Bear No, I meant that, if the rumours are true, this might be included in the Xbox Gamepass from day 1, like Outriders, but not in the PC version of GP.

    Which I do kind of understand, but I want to be miffed about *something*. :)

    Yeah but I'd be shocked at day one, which is rumoured it seems.

    Aha.
    The answer is upgrade your 1X to a Series X.

    I know MS have many money bags but how do new games that are released on gamepass get the cash that would have been generated by normal £50 purchases?

    Say maybe 1 million normal sales for a game but with game pass, 4 million download it to try it out when they normally wouldn't due to the type of game. Do the publishers just get a rental price of say £10 for each download?

    I do worry that gaming publishers and creators will be getting less and less money a bit like the way music downloads have done for musicians.

    Confused how it all works.

    Hmm, not sure upgrading to a series x is cheaper than the ps5 version...

    Also, I'm not arsing around with stock updates for a series x. That, and I'm saving for a new audio amp, as I'm fed up my convoluted hdmi set up to get hdr at 4k60fps to TV and sound to audio amp with no/minimal delay.

    A new amp with 4k120 hdr pass through is the answer! But that will sett me back about 800 when the new onkyo line up releases in June...

    @Gibroon I would imagine there are some complex contracts involved.

    Capcom would have an idea of sales for xb consoles. Microsoft pay them for that 1 million sales for example. But capcom and Microsoft have other scenarios in the contract I.e. if it isn't popular, Microsoft pay less or vice versa.

    In reality I have no clue, but this would make sense to me.

    Essentially capcom get the money they expect to make and Microsoft pay for a game not needing to pay for development.

    Did some digging and it seems the tumours stem from the xbox gamepass twitter account tweeting the date and time of the re showcase last night then quickly deleting the tweet.

    Given that no announcement was made last night and there continued to be a ps promotion going via demos I think the rumours of a day 1 release are wishful thinking

    It's not but this wouldn't be the only example nor the only benefit.
    Understand on the cash and stock front though.

    Resi needs open world mechanics about as much as it needs competitive multiplayer

    I could see it coming to GP in the future but not day one. They've been pretty heavy on PS5 support. Also I'd probably get it physical on PS5 because I have the others with lenticular sleeves.
