What Apple Arcade’s requirements to learn from Xbox Game Pass after 2019
Why fantasian got people hyped for Apple Arcade?
Fantasian got people hyped for Apple Arcade like we haven’t seen since it went live in September 2019, which is wild to consider the service has three times its launch catalog of 60 games to over 180 today. If Apple Arcade wants its game service’s user base to grow, it should learn a lesson from one more gaming service that has only grew up in subscriptions and hype: Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass.
How Apple Arcade was pitched?
It’s important to lay out how Apple Arcade was pitched: a service with no micro transactions or ads to interrupt play of a curated selection of games guaranteed to happiness, not offend. Developers got a good bargain, too, with a (still unknown) amount of financial support to make the games they want without necessity to shoehorn in income-generating mechanics.
What Apple Arcade appealed?
There are especially gamers to whom Apple Arcade obviously appealed: comfortable and relaxing mobile game fans, micro transaction-jaded players who just wanted distraction-free experiments, parents who didn’t want to worry about what their kids were playing. But at launch in September 2019, it was unclear how Apple Arcade would appeal to more players – a question to remain today as the service goes full steam ahead silently adding games that, for the most part, aren’t hyped ahead of time.
Apple’s place in the arcade game world,
Probably Apple is fine with to take up little space in the gaming world; Apple Arcade immediately rose in value last September when it was rolled into the Apple One bundle with services like Apple TV Plus, Apple Music, and Apple Fitness Plus. But Fantasian is the discount that proves Apple Arcade could be so much more if it just played ball with the gaming hype cycle like Microsoft does with Xbox Game Pass.

Xbox Game base on of Microsoft-owned titles
While Xbox Game Pass started with a base on Microsoft-owned titles – the Halo, Forza, Gears of War, and Minecraft titles that formed the base on first-party releases on Xbox sympathize with – the service has grown into the biggest value in gaming over the last pair years through its timely additions of wanted titles. And Microsoft has not been bashful about promoting which games are coming to Game Pass. Hyping up these game a month before its release in a way that drew more interest to an anonymous IP.
Regular chat about games Game Pass, and the Xbox blog,
Game Pass, and the Xbox blog, regularly chat which games are coming to the look back, and give enough notice – even for games coming this year that don’t even have a deliver date yet.That’s how we get out that, of the many games announced at the March [email protected] online showcase, around 20 would be are coming to Game Pass, per an official blog post.
What players knew about games?
We knew about the games because they, like Outriders, had followed conventional gaming hype channels – debut trailers, tease gameplay, announce for multiple platforms – and connected with fans who loved their property. That hype only extends when we found out they’d be coming to a service we’re already subscribed to. That’s why, when we saw Apple Arcade start talking openly and early about or Fantasian, we were surprised – Apple doesn’t really do advanced press for games.
