Xbox Boss: We Need To Create A Netflix Of Video Games

I think Spencer is on to something here. A subscription model for episodic content for certain games would be a great idea, but only if there were enough games to be worth it.

“I’ve looked at things like Netflix and HBO, where great content has been created because there’s this subscription model. Shannon Loftis and I are thinking a lot about, well, could we put story-based games into the Xbox Game Pass business model because you have a subscription going? It would mean you wouldn’t have to deliver the whole game in one month; you could develop and deliver the game as it goes.”
