Microsoft recently announced when its Xbox Game Pass service is going to be live. Think of it as Netflix for Xbox games. You pay a set subscription fee every month and get to download a wide variety of games from the library that continues to increase over time. The initial response appears to have been good as Microsoft’s Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said that early signs and feedback for the Xbox Game Pass service has been “really strong.”
Microsoft launched the Xbox Game Pass service for Xbox Live Gold members last week. They also get 14 day free trial so that they can try the service before they decide whether or not they want to spend their money on it.
All other Xbox owners who are not members of the Xbox Live Gold program will be able to sign up for the service starting June 1st.
Xbox Game Pass costs $9.99 per month and provides subscribers with access to more than 100 titles for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Microsoft will refresh the library on a monthly basis to ensure that there’s always something new for subscribers.
The library already includes some impressive titles, including but not limited to Halo 5 and Gears of War Ultimate Edition. More will be added down the line. If you’re not an Xbox Live Gold members, you have to wait until June 1st to sign up for the service.
