Xbox Game Pass Announced, $9.99 Offers Over 100 Titles

Microsoft launches its own game subscription service.

Posted By | On 28th, Feb. 2017 Under News


Microsoft has announced its own subscription service for Xbox Game Pass for the Xbox One. Like EA Access, this offers unlimited access a $9.99 per month for more than 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles (the latter being backwards compatible on the former). The service will launch in Spring 2017.

Unlike EA Access though, not every game will remain forever. New games will cycle in each month while others cycle out. The criteria for which games remain and which don’t hasn’t been disclosed.

Microsoft noted that all Xbox One titles along with their add-ons listed in the catalog can be purchased at a discount for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Though Xbox Insiders will be able to try the service now, Xbox Live Gold members will also receive access prior to Game Pass’s launch.

What kind of games can you expect? Thus far, it seems Halo 5: Guardians, Saints Row IV Re-Elected, NBA 2K16, Mad Max, LEGO Batman, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Terraria, Payday 2, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Fable III, Soul Calibur 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 among others.

    “What kind of games can you expect”

    Games that you probably already own, games you have grown bored of, games you have traded in to Gamestop already. Hence why there is a need to recoup those losses since there are very few “new” games coming out for the “Ex-box”. Adding backwards compatibility obviously wasn’t cutting it for increasing Xbox One console sales. So why not copy EA and offer a subscription service? LOL. Brilliant! This ship is taking on so much water that I hope the Scorpio has bigger life boats.

    I remember when MS used to lead the way. Now they’re just following along like a puppy dog. Lol
