Microsoft’s video game subscription service, the Xbox Game Pass, is now discounted to an offer you can’t refuse. Usually, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate goes for $14.99 a month; however, this new deal on target will set you three months for $19.99, saving $25.00. Canadian players can head over to BestBuy for this price.
Compared to the standard plan, the Ultimate features free Xbox Live Gold, which further benefits the user with exclusive deals and multiplayer. Secondly, it also expands the library with more Electronic Arts titles that are picked from EA Play. Finally, the Ultimate Plan will also allow you to enjoy games on other platforms and provide free perks with additional in-game content offers.
In case you don’t know much about the Xbox Game Pass, it’s a subscription-based service available for users on Xbox Console, Android, and Windows 10. The service described as “Netflix of Games” features a catalog of games that the members can play and download. Although these games aren’t available once the monthly subscription ends, users are provided with a discount if they decide to buy any game from the catalog. As of yet, Xbox Game Pass has over 100 games, and users also get the privilege to play first-party Xbox Studio titles on Day 1.
The Xbox Game Pass is one thing PlayStation lack. Recently, PlayStation Boss Jim Ryan was asked about Xbox Game Pass, to which he responded, “There is news to come, but not just today.” The statement only indicated that PlayStation could be gearing up to compete with Xbox Game Pass, but given Ryan’s previous statements on Game Pass not being a viable option, we failed to reach any conclusion.
