The takeover of ZeniMax Media by Microsoft, including Bethesda and many prominent titles such as Fallout, DOOM, Dishonored and Wolfenstein, announced on Monday, has shaken the gaming world. One of the many comments I have read about it was "now it's getting tight for Sony". This is nonsense in many ways. I don't expect the balance of power in the pure console business to shift significantly, at least in the medium term. I also don't think Microsoft will just pull the titles they now own from the Playstation because that would be a very stupid decision.

Microsoft and Sony part ways

Microsoft and Sony have been competitors in the console business so far. Sony is the undisputed top dog with the Playstation, Microsoft is the eternal challenger with the Xbox. I had to smile hard when I read various comments in the last week, which already declare the Playstation 5 the winner of the next generation of consoles. On the one hand, because these comments appear before the consoles are on the market and no objective comparisons are possible, but on the other hand, because these comments tell us what we already knew. The forecast that the PS5 will sell better than the new Xbox could have been made two years ago without too much expertise, because the balance of power is clearly regulated. Nobody changes platforms because the competition has bigger numbers on the data sheet.

The Bethesda takeover has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the console sale. It's about Xbox Game Pass, and it's all about. More on that in a moment. With this acquisition, Microsoft is not sending a declaration of war to Sony, rather they wave to them in a friendly manner and say: “We'll be gone then. Sell ​​as many Playstations as you can and want. We're a few steps further. ”

The race for the console market is over, Microsoft doesn't care how many Xbox Series S or X they sell compared to the PS5. Of course they want to sell as many consoles as possible, and should the utopian case arise that the Playstation is overtaken somewhere, then you will be pleased to note. But that's no longer really important.

The Game Pass becomes a critical success factor. Today for Microsoft, tomorrow maybe for others

As part of the announcement of the Bethesda deal, Microsoft dropped some interesting information. The Xbox Game Pass currently has 15 million subscribers, and five million new subscribers have been gained in around six months. The Game Pass is definitely a model for success. With the titles from the Bethesda deal, the integration of EA Play and the freshly started cloud streaming, all signs point to growth.

MVP colleague Michael Gillett made an interesting calculation yesterday via Twitter: With 41 million Game Pass subscribers, Microsoft would have the costs for the Bethesda takeover back in one year.

Game Pass = $ 14.99 / month

Game Pass = $ 179.88 / year

$ 7.4 billion / $ 179.88 = 41 million Game Pass Subscribers

Microsoft is at 15 million, they only need 26 million more subscribers to be able to buy another Bethesda next year

The Game Pass is already washing more than two billion dollars a year into Microsoft's coffers, and the trend is growing rapidly. At the moment, games can only be streamed on Android, the PC and possibly Smart TVs will follow suit, maybe it will also work out with Apple at some point. It becomes obvious that the Xbox is “still there” in this scenario, but no longer plays a decisive role. Redmond knows exactly that Microsoft must not neglect them, the new generation is proof enough of that.

Xbox Game Pass is becoming "Netflix for Games," and it's moving towards what I call critical mass. The offer is already so large that it is impossible to take full advantage of it, and it is continually getting "worse". At some point the first players will start thinking about why they should buy games at all if they cannot even exhaust the offer that they are already paying for. Of course, blockbusters like the annual Fifa infusion will always find buyers, but smaller and less popular titles will soon begin to suffer.

When this point is reached, the Game Pass will not only become a critical success factor for Microsoft, but also for game developers. Perhaps the day will come when you just have to be there at the Game Pass so as not to run the risk of being overlooked. This development is undoubtedly also dangerous, it could put Microsoft in a position of power that harms the industry as a whole. No matter how much Phil Spencer can be the nicest guy in this tough industry. Whoever has power exercises it.

Keyword power: Tellingly meaningless, Microsoft has announced that in the future it will decide on a case-by-case basis which (Bethesda) titles to bring to which console. I repeat again that I would consider it extremely stupid to bring a title exclusively to the Xbox and withhold it from the Playstation. Instead, you should try to make the Game Pass appealing to Playstation players. Imagine a future Playstation game comes with a voucher for three months of Game Pass Ultimate.

Or how about Microsoft releases a Game Pass app for the Playstation? Whether Sony would approve this is in the stars, they would probably not do it voluntarily. If the benefit for the players is great enough, Sony would probably have no choice.

That is already too small, because as already mentioned above: The competition between Microsoft and Sony is basically over, the business models have become completely different. Microsoft is expanding into a giant in the gaming industry, and the Xbox is basically just a small part of it.
