Xbox Game Pass subscription service is coming next month

Microsoft is busy readying a subscription service for its Xbox One gaming console. This will be called Xbox Game Pass when it launches next month. It will give you access to more than 100 titles created for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. In return, you’ll have to pay $9.99 per month. The Game Pass service, or better put the idea of such a service, was first unveiled by Microsoft back in February.

The full list of games you’ll have access to can be seen here. Unlike Sony’s PlayStation Now, Game Pass will let you download the included games – no streaming necessary. If you’re a subscriber, you also get the option to buy any of the included titles at a discount. A new set of games will be added to the catalog each month, Microsoft promises.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers will jump the line on this one, as Game Pass will be available to them starting today.
