Xbox Game Pass is fantastic value for a subscription service, but that doesn't mean you should name your child after it.
During a Gamescom 2021 live stream earlier this week, Xbox games marketing manager, Aaron Greenberg, jokingly advised fans not to call their child "Game Pass".
"I also ask that no one name their baby Game Pass."
This comment was made in response to a story shared by Bethesda's Pete Hines about how a family legally named their child "Dovahkiin" (a mortal man or woman born with the blood and soul of a dragon in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, source: uesp) and were rewarded with free Bethesda games for life.
It was also pointed out how naming a child "Game Pass" is likely not possible in Germany, or a lot of other countries around the world.
Of course, we can't help but wonder now if naming a child "Game Pass" would result in a lifetime Xbox subscription or something similar. Can you get back to us about this, Xbox?
Game Pass might be a joke too far, but hey - there's always Master Chief or Cortana...right?
