Talking Point: Have You Ever Bought A Game Just Before It Was Announced For Game Pass?

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 all of it, and it's the fact that buying any Xbox game these days 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 knew Mass Effect Legendary Edition would join Game Pass Ultimate via EA Play eventually, but we didn't know it'd drop as soon as this January. There was no clear indication that Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy would arrive on Game Pass last month, but that's exactly what ended up happening on March 10th.

It's a risk you have to take these days, and of course, buying a copy guarantees you'll get to keep the game longer than its Game Pass lifespan in any case. But today, we're interested to know those moments you've been "burned" by Game Pass announcing something you hadn't anticipated, especially when you would have rather waited.

Has it ever happened to you? What game was it? Let us know down in the comments section below.
