Microsoft to host Nindies styled '[email protected] Game Pass' stream next week


Nintendo was really onto something

Just mere hours after Sony came out with news about the "State of Play" stream, Microsoft announced today that it will be hosting a new stream focused on indie games called "[email protected] Game Pass." It will debut on March 26, 2019, at 9:00 am PDT on the Xbox YouTube channel and will feature plenty of announcements alongside talks with various developers of upcoming games. A few of the games teased for this debut stream include Afterparty, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek, though unannounced titles will be present.

This stream actually isn't new ground for Microsoft. The company has been hosting various "Inside Xbox" streams for a few years now, but this latest one is taking a cue from Nintendo in being all about smaller games from various indie developers. It's kind of funny how Nintendo blazed this trail when it's typically behind the curve on modern things. I guess announcing games on your own terms is too big of an opportunity to pass up.
