Just when you think Microsoft is out of gas, they always have one more trick up their sleeve.
Today, Xbox unveiled that they will be releasing Game Pass this spring to the Xbox One. The Xbox Game Pass will give console owners access to over 100 Xbox One and backwards compatible games for only $9.99 a month. Think of how Netflix works but this is strictly with games and they will not be streamed, the games will be available for download.
Subscribers who pay the monthly fee will be able to choose from games like Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II. Subscribers will also be able to purchase the games in the catalog at a discount, adding them permanently to their Xbox library. Game Pass will start rolling out today to select members of the Xbox Insider program today, with plans to launch exclusively for Xbox Live Gold subscribers before going live this spring.
This is a big deal! What do you guys think?
