You can get a full year of Xbox live for less than this...and then for $1 turn it into Ultimate which includes gamespass, which in turn includes this game.

Never Pre-Order. It's never worth it.

Just a heads up, if you have Xbox Gamepass already, this game is included with it on release day.

I think I'll just wait and sign up for the $1 Game Pass Ultimate before launch day. Then play it for a month and cancel before renewal. Big Grin

Hope it runs better on PC than GoW 4 did/does.

Not to sound like a broken record in this post, but I know some people like to "own games", but do we really even own digital? $9.99 and you can play this game for a month, and a ton of others. It's a little silly to buy MS first party games anymore, when gamepass is such an amazing deal.

It blows my mind how many games they keep adding.

Better play it on gamepass. Pre-order not worth it nowadays. Don't even know if Gears 5 is good or bad.

I played GoW4 on PC and didn't have any problems whatsoever...

Game is probably going to bomb since most people will play it on gamepass and get tired of it and never end up owning it. I'll probably just stream it too.

I mean, you're saying it performed poorly. I don't think that's the case. It's fine. You're basically warning people that Gears 4 was bad, somehow, but it wasn't.

At the end of the day, it's just you saying what you're saying and me disagreeing. The only real difference is that you're going this weird, sarcastic, dick-ish route for whatever reason.

Nice try. Your anecdotal evidence aside, a simple Google of "GoW 4 Windows 10 Crash" (or something similar) and reading a bit might have given you some kind of clue as to what I was talking about. There are even SD threads which discussed this topic. So, my statement was based not only on my own observations, but extensive research on the topic and therefore being aware of the magnitude of issues that have yet to be fixed with the GoW 4 title on PC.

You're lucky if you had no problems with GoW 4, I love the game and wish that my experience was issue-free like yours, but at the end of the day you decided to troll me when I made the well-founded statement that I hoped it ran better than the last one did. I say "troll" because you didn't even bother to determine if there was any validity to what I was saying, and assumed that it was an opinion based on your own personal experience.

So, as far as my response being "weird, sarcastic and dick-esh", you might want to take another look at the dismissive attitude of your first response and re-evaluate your own actions before characterizing my statements.
