It looks like Rise of the Tomb Raider will be getting a season pass on Xbox One. The listing comes from Amazon and it will cost $29.99.

Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda discussed the Xbox One’s upcoming backwards compatibility as evidence that Microsoft is listening to what gamers want most.
“I think you can see that we listen, and that it has a huge influence on the big features that we deliver. for example, our announcement at E3 that Xbox One would support backward compatibility with Xbox 360 games. I mean, that was the most highly requested fan feature and something that people were asking us about at the launch of Xbox One. I didn’t even think it would be possible that we could enable that technically, and yet it was such a fan-requested feature among our community that we went and dedicated a big part of the super-talented people we have working on the tech on just going and figuring that problem out,” Tsunoda told OXM.
Out of Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo this generation, I feel Microsoft has done the best job of listening to the gamers. Just how I was treated at E3 proves they listen to the little guys and fans. They often comment back on social media, Phil Spencer regularly answers questions and I was granted interviews at E3 with Microsoft’s developers. Sony and Nintendo refused to talk to me cause I wasn’t IGN or something. Either way what do you guys think?
