I haven't compared Game Pass' time-to-profitability to Netflix and Spotify because it isn't possible to do so since we don't even know if Game Pass is profitable. Since we don't have actual data the only thing we can do is look at other companies who have gone through similar subscription models. I never said it was a 1:1 comparison. It's just the closest we've got. My response for this wasn't even to you. It was towards another user asking why I personally didn't think they were profitable yet. Your opening response of "Christ" tells me that you're getting bent out of shape, and there is no reason for that.
You cited other subscription services like Netflix and Spotify, mentioned that their time to profitability was a long time and stated that that’s what you expect to see for all subscription services, including Gamepass.
If that’s not a comparison, I don’t know what is.
It's not a piece of information from which we can deduct success or failure. It's simply the product of number of subscribers (which we already knew) times the average cost of the service (which we also knew).
The only thing you can take from this thread is that some GAF users seemingly get very emotional with this subject and tend to jump to conclusions on both sides (which we already knew).
You knew the average cost of the service?
