A family member works for M$, was on the hardware logistics side from early XBox 360 era to S/X launch and is now on the hardware logistics side for scaling the cloud compute under Game Pass. I've had nothing but positive feedback for him on my experience.
Clearly they are going all in on Game Pass and I couldn't be happier. The game streaming component is REALLY impressive. As a casual gamer I can pop something on for 30 minutes and go on my way.
My only real frustration is the lack of split screen multiplayer games and the need for some 2nd profile. I just wanna play with my 10 year old and that makes it a bit more challenging than need be.
