    Should have phrased it better, Why do people buy games from companies that are not interested in supporting Linux ?

    Well considering that Steam now has the EA Play subscription, Microsoft could bring Game Pass to Steam with an agreement with Valve.

    As it is now, though. Game Pass requires the Xbox app and Microsoft Store, which won't work in Wine.

    I wonder if one day we will see stuff like Microsoft Game Pass store working in Linux, would be interesting.

    Maybe firejail?

    I don't know, the logical conclusion to this application is that it has to have plenty of DRM systems to provide the gameplay, especially within the live traffic system. It would basically make the game an "online-only" application (when it comes to that live traffic system).

    As speculation goes, you all know how Microsoft like to have a mastodon/grand big ass stone that surrounds it's systems so usually Microsoft applications have a hard time to be adaptive unless the application is reworked from the ground up... again.

    Except for a single pre-order in the past month, the THPS 1+2 remake, I haven't bought a game for full price in over 10 years. There's so much content out there that I don't mind waiting a year or two and buying the game+all the dlc for 10 or 20 bucks versus the starting price of $80 or $100 for the game with the season pass. Don't know about y'all, but to me a season pass is a big fsck you from the game companies saying "You got two choices because no matter what we're gonna take this complete game and remove content from it. You can either nickel and dime you're way through a DLC list to get the content back or you can spend an extra 50-100% on a gamble to get all the content back al a cart. So what's it gonna be?"
