It benefits the foolish player. Paying for the same game twice is just silly.
You've never bought a game twice? Ever?
The person that gets a 360 game for christmas, buys the season pass, then gets a One for Christmas, gets the game as a gift. That's a foolish player?
I find season passes to be a foolish venture. You are prepaying for unknown content. So the whole package involves buying the same game twice, one version likely being "inferior" to the other and then blindly paying for content pending.
