Back in February, Microsoft announced their plans to introduce Xbox Game Pass a subscription service for the Xbox One. The time is almost here for it to be brought forth in to the world, as the Game Pass will be available starting June 1 for the price of $9.99 per month.
Xbox Game Pass is sort of a video game version of Netflix, but only for the Xbox brand. For the aforementioned $9.99 per month, you will get access to over 100 Xbox One, and Xbox 360, titles, which you can download directly to your console. That’s a lot of games. If you want to dip your toe into the Game Pass waters, you can get a 14-day free trial. Meanwhile, if you are an Xbox Live Gold member, you can start using Xbox Game Pass already.
This seems like a smart move in these modern times of ours. As the world of television increasingly moves to a streaming model, it makes sense to have a video game subscription service that allows gamers to download games without having to buy a physical copy. Plus, Microsoft doing it themselves wisely cuts out the middle man.
