But Just Once In A While, And Only If Game Pass Joins In
There’s been a lot of talk about Xbox Game Pass coming to other systems. Maybe we see this badass subscription service on the Nintendo Switch? Well, a new poll reveals that some Xbox gamers would be into that. Get a Switch for that portable Xbox feeling on Friday nights, maybe.
Okay, so only 25% of the people polled were willing to entertain this idea. But even so! If one in four Xbox owners bought a Nintendo Switch, that would be an enormous bump to Nintendo’s install base. Plus, think of how many current Switch owners could be enticed into buying Game Pass?
God, even the thought of this must have both companies utterly salivating. The only hitch in this plan is like, the obvious technical hurdles. I hate to be that guy, but there’s a lot of Game Pass titles that probably wouldn’t run so hot on Nintendo’s portable handheld. The Switch is no slouch, but we’re talking about brand new Xbox One games, here. You could make Crackdown 3 work on a Qualcomm Etch-a-Sketch, but State of Decay 2? Forget about it. Don’t let that stop you though, Microsoft. Reach for the stars!
