First up is a “Game Pass Ultimate” that combines an Xbox Live Gold subscription with a GamePass subscription. Xbox Live Gold is routinely on sale, but it typically costs around $60 when bought annually, $10/month when bought month-by-month.
Second, it’s claimed that Microsoft will soon have a Game Pass subscription for Windows, too. Details are thin to non-existent at the moment, but with Microsoft’s increasing efforts to unify Xbox and Windows gaming and plans to bring the previously Xbox-exclusive to Windows, a Game Pass for Windows would make a lot of sense.
Even more subscription options are likely to be in the pipeline, too, once the company’s Xcloud streaming service goes live.
