Listen, we all love Xbox Game Pass and the bi-monthly announcements we get from Microsoft about new games joining the service, but there’s one potential downside to everything, and it’s the fact that buying an Xbox game nowadays comes with the risk that it could be added to Game Pass in a few days, weeks or months.
Sometimes you just don’t know when to anticipate some of these additions. We know Legendary Mass Effect Edition was eventually going to come to Game Pass Ultimate through EA Play, but we didn’t realize it was coming in January. There was no clear indication that Marvel‘s Guardians of the Galaxy was supposed to arrive on Game Pass last month, but that’s exactly what happened on March 10.
It’s a risk you have to take these days, and of course buying a copy guarantees that you can at least keep the game longer than the Game Pass lifespan. But today we’re interested in those moments when you were “burnt” by Game Pass announcing something you didn’t expect, especially when you’d rather have waited.
Has it ever happened to you? What game was it? Let us know in the comments below.
