Game pass is a fantastic service, giving you a ton of console and PC games for an insanely small amount of money. But no matter how much you love Game Pass, listen to Xbox Director Aaron Greenberg who asks you not to name your next child “Game Pass.” Please.
Gamescom 2021 finished yesterday. During the three-day event, several live broadcasts and videos were shown with developers and publishers talking about the games and upcoming partnerships. You know, video game convention shit.
During one of these flows, Bethesda’s Pete Hines and Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg Discussed Some Past Stories, including one that Hines shared about a woman who gave birth during Skyrim reveal at Quakecon 2011. She stayed to watch the full reveal and then left to have her baby. One of the people who interviewed Hines joked that the couple might have named their child Dovahkiin after the main character of Skyrim. That didn’t happen, but Hines pointed out that someone had done just that and Bethesda gave them free Bethesda games for life.
When is (at 8:45 p.m.) Xbox’s Greenberg responded with a call to anyone watching who might expect it soon.
“I also ask that no one name their baby Game Pass,” Greenberg said.
Everyone laughed and moved on to a story on Greenberg officiating a Weaponry of war wedding. (Video game conventions and their live streams are weird this year.) But now I have to imagine that at least one person is like, “Oh … is that working?” Could i get Xbox Game Pass free, for the rest of my life, if I name my child Game Pass ..? ”
Based on Greenberg’s answer here, I don’t think it would work. However, if it worked, I guess it would only work for the very first person to try it. So here is your challenge. But is the Free Lifetime Game Pass really worth your child to experience this terrible nam i? I’ll let you decide.
