The subscription wars are upon us, it seems, as so many of these services are popping up at the moment, it already feels damn near impossible to keep up with it all. On the Xbox side of things, you have Game Pass, something that’s become a key part of their gaming business. Microsoft also owns Mixer, a streaming platform that just had some big news with the exclusive signing of famous streamer Ninja. Since gaming and streaming go hand-in-hand, could these two things be colliding soon? According to Phil Spencer, it’s more than possible.

On his official Twitter, Spencer was asked if we could be seeing a situation similar to Twitch Prime, where you can use it to earn in-game items or credit, in Mixer for Game Pass titles (and vice versa). While he didn’t commit to anything, he did say his team has been thinking about ways to mix the two services for awhile, and complimented the question as a good idea.

It makes sense- the two things go so hand-in-hand, and Twitch has been doing similar things its their Prime service already. Don’t be too surprised if we see the two Microsoft services mingling in some way sooner rather than later.
