Xbox One Subscription: a $10 a Month Service with Unlimited Access to Xbox and Xbox 360 GamesBy Ava Jones, UniversityHerald Reporter
For just a $9.99 a month subscription fee, fans can now enjoy 100 games with the Xbox One Pass. The new Xbox One Pass is a game download subscription and not a streaming service. Some of the games included in this service are "SoulCalibur II," "NBA 2K16," "Halo 5: Guardians," and more from Xbox One and other previous compatible games.
It's like fans purchased them digitally, but instead of paying for each game, they can download as many games as they want for a low price of $9.99 a month, Kotaku reported. Fans can choose to purchase games at a 20 percent discount and 10 percent discount for the add-ons. Xbox One as rolled out to select members of the console's Insider program starting 1, March, before it gets released in Spring for all users.
Every month, new titles will be added and removed in the list of downloadable games. As long as the games remain in the library and the fans are subscribed to pass, they can gain access of the titles. As seen in the poster, other games featured include "Mad Max," "Fable III," "Lego Batman," "Terraria," "The Megaman Collection," "Saint's Row IV," and more.
PS4 has dominated the console market, while Xbox One is lagging far behind it. The new Xbox One Pass is exactly what Microsoft needs right now, Gizmodo reported. Xbox One's counterpart in rival company Sony is the PlayStation Now. But it only features PS3 games. Xbox One Pass lets players download the game, while PlayStation Now only lets players stream the games.
Xbox One Pass is like EA Access, which gives users unlimited access to PC and Xbox One EA games from only $30 a year. Meanwhile, Xbox One Gold members already access free games from Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Xbox One Gold members can use the new pass before it is released to the public.
