What is the Xbox Game Pass? It’s basically a digital-paid pass that provides backward compatibility allowing you to play titles from Xbox 360 at the same time offering titles from Xbox One as well. Sony, rival of Microsoft, has already been offering a similar service on the PlayStation 4 called PS Now which allows player to stream previous platform titles at the price $19.99 per month With PS Now you can stream games on your PS4, PS4 Pro and even Windows 10 PC but as of now Sony only offers PlayStation 3 titles but that is set to change in the coming month when Sony finally adds PlayStation 4 titles into the library of games.
In comparison to PS Now, Xbox Game Pass will only cost subscriber $9.99 per month and most importantly, games are downloadable and players can continue playing as long as their subscription remains active. This is huge upgrade since PS Now does not offer downloads but require players to have high speed connection to stream the game onto their device and most often than not this results in bad sound and image quality.
The service will be available from 1st of June but if you’re an active subscriber of Xbox Live Gold, you can sign up now and enjoy a 14-day Free Trial and be one with your couch.
Here’s the list of games that Xbox Game Pass will be offering at launch, a total of 111 games with 40 titles from Xbox One, 24 titles from Xbox 360 and 47 titles from Xbox Live:
