If you’re looking to try out Xbox Game Pass, you now have the best excuse because it’s only $2. That’s right, $2 freaking dollars.
thats the best one I've seen
I just got it. Even 2 dollars in Canada for 2 months. That's nice. But sadly I only found 2 games that are actually supported on PC which is why I just spent the 2 dollars. Which is Super Lucky's Tale and Gears 4. I believe Sea of Thieves as well but I'm not interested in that. Sad though
I might take them up on the offer. OTOH, my upcoming gaming schedule is pretty full for the rest of the year, and I'm trying to get through backlog before September. Still....$2 won't break the bank.
With the release of Halo MCC on Gamepass everyone please get on this!!
hard to pass this up!!!! 2 dollars, I'd give anyone two dollars if they asked me lol. I'm in
"The only kicker is that this deal is only available to new customers." pffft
People with expired gamepass also ?
Maybe, but somehow I doubt it.
I may be wrong but I think that the promotion is available to those who currently are not subscribed. I canceled my subscription twice, yet I was still able to take advantage of the previous $1 for 1 month offers.
@x_xavier_x Ah.......nice. Thanks for the correction.
Can I buy in and activate later? because its a great deal but don't plan to get a xbox until black friday
So Xbox Game Pass is only for Xbox or Both PC and Xbox?
Both. Game Pass works on PC for games that are Play Anywhere. So you don't get all the games on PC that you would on Xbox, but all new first party games will be on Play Anywhere and Game Pass which means they will be on PC.
Thanks since i no longer have an Xbone.
This is the list of games you get on PC with Game Pass: https://www.xbox.com/en-US/...
PC at the moment has maybe 5 games out of the hundred plus. Everything else is good to go on Xbox One though. Only games I can confirm work on PC Gears 4 Disney Adventure Recore Super Lucky's Tale Sea of Thieves
PC has 12. The ones you mentioned as well as: State of Decay 2 Rush Ruiner Halo Wars Halo Wars 2 Riptide GP Zoo Tycoon And every new first Party game including Forza Horizon 4 in October
Halo wars didn't have the PC version when I checked right before writing. I don't remember checking the others you noted but maybe zoo tycoon. Though I don't remember it saying PC as well. Maybe those were the ones that were redirecting me to my browser as those ones I didn't bother checking. State of Decay is a obvious one I must have missed lol. The thing is alot of the titles are on PC just didn't get added as they're not first party and probably would require a fee that's not worth it to them I assume. Edit: I just checked. So I checked Halo wars and Halo wars 2. Only the first game is on for PC, the second one was the one I checked before and I assumed it meant the first wasn't as well. I did check rush if it's that disney game and you're right. I'm pretty sure you're right about the others though. Thanks in advance now I for more titles to play lol. Well honestly just state of Decay really lol. But still 10 is alot better for a start and Forza is the reason I would have gotten the game pass eventually too. Forza Horizon 4 looks amazing honestly
These nominal fee tactics make you put a valid credit card down and auto renew with the hopes you'll either love it or forget to cancel. Presumably the forget to cancel option happens a lot.
They give you a refund no problem if you catch it in time, mine auto renewed, phoned up and said i forgot to cancel, they were more than happy to cancel it down and refund the money.
False, I never put my CC info on Xbox. Keep trying troll.
@Bnet343 - sorry I meant your Dad's CC info. You can't sign up without a CC on file, and their terms state what happens: "Subscription continues to be charged monthly at then-current price (subject to change; plus applicable taxes) unless cancelled.".
Well definitely won me over since I wanted to play the new Forza Horizon but didn't want to buy it lol. I'd have got the pass full price next month if this wasn't the case. Now I got 2 months for change I'd lose and never notice lol.
The service is new, and they're trying to incentivize people to try it. No doubt it also requires you keep recurring subs on, since that's the default, and they probably hope many people forget to unsub if they decide not to use the service...or better, hope people like it enough to feel that $10/month is worth it.
Desperate in the same way Netflix, Spotify, Deezer and countless other companies who offer the same introductory offers?
Lmao does it matter? It' $2, if you don't like you're welcome to pay $100 for the next cod and $50 for seasons pass instead.
Great I just signed up for the free trial a week ago so now I don't get it. BS.
Isn't it a 2 week trial? If so then you'll have time to sign up for this promotion (ends Aug 31) after your free subscription ends. Problem solved!
cancel your free trial subscription and then get the deal.
Nope still full price
Try doing it on a different account, you can just set your console as that accounts home console and share it.
Well I signed up on PC. Don't have an Xbox
Oh I see, scratch that idea then.
I'll get for 2 dollars right now if this is serious lol
PS I did and no matter how you look at it, Renting Gears 4 for $2 and you get to play for 2 months is already a deal to me so all the others are just extra incentive PS I always wanted to try super lucky's tale and luckily I get to now. Definitely a win
Warning though, without telling you MS turns on automatic renewal. They've done it to me before.
Good call. In their defense this is standard practice in most subscription service contracts..
In one post you're saying 'without telling you MS turns on auto renewal', then in the next post you're posting the T&C's which clealry state this is the case and then suggesting there's a catch. You need to make your mind up.
Everyone with common sense knows that's how most subscription services work
There's always a catch... Xbox Game Pass 1 Month $2.00 plus applicable taxes for the first month $9.99 plus applicable taxes every month after that By selecting Subscribe, you agree to the Store Terms of Sale. We'll charge you $2.00 plus applicable taxes for the first month and $9.99 plus applicable taxes every month after that. You'll be notified before any future price changes. Cancel any time.
How is that a catch? Haven't ever signed up for a subscription service before? They all do this. Netflix. Hulu, Spotify don't automatically cancel the service after you opt in on a promotional offer.
I recently got Sony plus and auto renewal was not turned on nor were there any extra charges. You can't trust MS.
Wheres the catch? The terms and conditions are very clear and it states 'cancel at anytime' too. You have a very cynical view of something so simple and clear.
If we win, you must take your sorry ass back to hell. And also you will have to pay our rent.
That's pretty much what all special subscription offers like this do. It's not really a catch, just something they do to get customers in. While I'd have to check, I'd imagine that recurring subs are turned on by default when you sign up. But if its like XBL, you can opt out of recurring automatic payments.
In the past someone said that Microsoft, in desperation, would give the games for free to face the PlayStation. And that day has come.
Who was the first company to give free games in their subscription service? Give you a clue, it starts with S and rhymes with Tony.
Yeah, and "that" subscription was $1. Right!
Just got my 2 moths!
After your 2 months go to cdkeys and thank me later. 😉
you can game share game pass as well. me and a friend got 2 years of game pass for £48 each. incredible value for money especially when you consider forza horizon 4, halo mcc and ashen are getting added soon
Best deal and should be permanent deal
