Phil Spencer talked about a new subscription service for Xbox players that will allow then to play more than 100 titles each month. This new service is being called Xbox Game Pass and will be coming out sometime in Spring this year.
Xbox Game Pass will cost users $9.99 per month and will also feature backwards compatible games as well. According to the company:
At Xbox, we put gamers at the center of everything we do and remain committed to giving you the freedom to play the games you want, with the friends you want, on the devices you want. This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for gamers. As we prepare to launch Project Scorpio this holiday, bringing the most powerful console ever made to the Xbox One family of devices, we continue to make platform improvements to connect the growing community of players on Xbox Live and add to a robust and diverse portfolio of games across Xbox One and Windows 10.
This is not a streaming service and users will be able to download full games and play them seamlessly. This is a great new feature coming for the Xbox One and could also be coming out for Project Scorpio as it will also be a part of the Xbox family in the coming months.
There is still a lot we need to learn about Project Scorpio and we are expecting to see some news regarding the development of the console at E3 this year.
Xbox Game Pass will be something that will motivate players, at least that is what I think. We will have to see how people respond when the service goes live.
Let us know what you think about Xbox Game Pass and whether or not you would be interested in something like this. This could be the start of something great.
