Got some awesome news today for Xbox One users. Microsoft has just announced a new program going by the name of Xbox Game Pass. For 9.99 a month it will give users a library of over 100 full Xbox One and backwards compatible games to play with. It is estimated to arrive this Spring for all, but some people in the Xbox Insider Program will get to test it out early with a limited library of games. Xbox Gold users will also have access to it earlier than other non-members.
Some of the publishers confirmed to have titles available for the Pass are heavy-hitters such as Microsoft Studios (of course), Capcom, SNK, 505 Games, Warner Bros Interactive, Bandai Namco, Sega, Deep silver, THQ, and 2K. Some confirmed titles that will be available later on this Spring are Halo 5, Payday 2, NBA 2k16, and Soul Calibur II. They promise a variety of games and genres so everyone has something to play, and so far seems good.
Xbox Game Pass sounds an awful lot like it's Sony counterpart Playstation Now, but there are some crucial differences.
-On a monthly basis the lineup changes, with some titles cycling out and new ones cycling in
-The games will be downloaded directly to your hard drive, so no worries about streaming quality
-Xbox Game Pass users will be able to buy the games or relative dlc they want to keep at a discount
-It is a flat fee of 9.99 a month, there will be no “Premium Games” like on PS Now that require you to pay an extra fee to play them
It sounds like the Xbox Game Pass will offer good bang for the buck, I'm definitely going to try it out this Spring. How about you guys? Let us know what you
