Xbox Game Pass for PC was introduced last year as a beta. Next week the beta is ending, and the subscription price will be increased.
I saw that coming
no shit boyo
If it was 6-7€ a month, would be worth it, but 10€ is a bit too much on PC. For that price I prefer purchasing the game I'm interested. If they made a pack 1 year Game Pass PC for 70-75€... I'd subscribe.
Too much? It has incredible value for what it offers. No more than the price of a couple of pints down the pub in the UK.
They said from day one that once it's out of Beta the price will go up.
I been saying this for a while now. I'm going to cancel it when it happens $5 dollars was good while it lasted
They told us it was coming really.
Was inevitable. Good thing I've been building up my Microsoft Rewards points. Of course, you can still just let the subscription expire every month and renew for $1.
Or just pay $180 for 3 years of Game Pass Ultimate
I can pay nothing and use rewards points. Besides I'll only subscribe for a month or so at a time when there are games on the service I want to play. Paying up front for three years of Ultimate is a massive waste of money for me.
How do you pay 180 for 3 years?
There is a promo, google 180 gamepass and it will show you the instructions.
I hope that is the case otherwise no more gamepass for me until there is a game on there I really want to play.
I just renewed for $1 for the third straight month. Mainly just to prove it could be done as some here said it couldn't. How long Microsoft allows that trick to work.....no idea. I expect they will eventually make it a one time offer if the service becomes more popular.
@RazzerRedux I guess so to be honest I only renewed for a pound a few days ago. I done it for the sake of it only being a pound. I have not actually played anything since renewing. Might get cracking on with Wolfenstein new blood.
Yea, the $1 trick has to end eventually, especially once they start putting their own 1st party single player games out there more frequently that people would otherwise want to buy.
Lol I played a lot of games that I was interested in using that trick 😊
Great to hear it's back upto the full price
lol...PC getting a better deal was tweaking your jealousy even more, wasn't it?
At least it's still free to play online on PC.
I like how there was an article about how ea play was at no additional cost but they double the sub price a day after announcing it. Still a great deal I'm just not going to go in thinking there was no additional cost to this.
Well, now it is the same as Xbox's price (up from $5 a month to $10).
I think it was a good deal at $5/month, but for me, not a good deal at $10/month. EA Play added to Steam is $30/year which works out to $2.50 / month, but I still don't get it (and I bet many people don't). It's just not worth it for me - by the time the good games go into the vault i already bought them. So from my perspective the price just doubled but the value clearly did not.
I agree with you on that
I agree, my son, my nephew and I were playing Grounded on PC game pass and i was ok with paying basically $10 monthly ($5 each for me and my son) for that and a couple other games, but I am not so ok with paying $20 a month. Probably gonna cancel it. Just not worth it. The subscriptions are getting out of hand. Between game subs and tv subs, Its getting way to costly.
Just canceled mine. Steam all the way. Not sure if I ever paid $60 for a Steam game. With all those specials its about the same as Game Pass and I actually own the games - not a surprise disappearance when you are in the middle of a campaign. Doesn't support my DS4, Steam does (and with EA Play on Steam so do those without trickery). Well, F1 did support the DS4 even on Game Pass...
@Ju - i agree. And the controller mapping features in Steam are often not mentioned when people compare stores and such. It's fantastic. Probably a lot of people don't realize that you can map the gyro to look, triggered by the Left Trigger (ADS) and use gyro aim to dial in the shot with a DS4. So many things you can configure...
I have Game Pass Ultimate for PC, that price isnt Increasing.
You're already paying $15/month $180/year. You have met your tithe requirement for the church of MS lol. Go in peace, brother.
No, doesn't pain me. I'm glad someone is out there keeping the competition alive. Keeps the market leader in check.
Nope, just $1 for 36 months. I'll reassess it's value again sometime in 2022.
What ever that Means.... I dont get caught up in the "Fanboy" Dramatics. I own a Gaming PC, A Gaming Laptop, a PS4 Pro, a XBOX One X and a Nintendo Switch. Im about playing Video Games. Who ever has them, Im going to get them. Lastly I own Game Pass Ultimate strictly for X-Cloud. Its Free with Game Pass Ultimate. I would Flex but you young dont know any better.
@GamingEffect - are you the old spice guy from the commercials? You're sitting on a horse right now, aren't you? :-)
Outside of A Plague Tale and My Friend Pedro, I never found anything I hadn't already played or something new worth playing.
That's the reason why I don't want to pay $180 a year for it
Not enough game titles on Game Pass to get me interested.
Gamepass is actually more expensive over time. It's cheaper just to buy the game on Steam and wait for price drops
Less than a year of gamepass gave me Gears 4 and 5, Outer Worlds, Wasteland 3, and Master Chief Collection PC. More than justifies what I pay, and that's only a number of the games I've taken advantage of.
When is Game Pass on PC going to have 360 games? Why can't PC players play Rare Replay yet? Is Game Pass on PC ever going to have the same amount as the Game Pass on the Xbox? How long is it going to take MS to finally answer these questions?
$4.99 to $9.99, big deal. It's worth it in my opinion..
i knew it was coming but was expecting $15. its still a decent deal more so now that it has ea games. but im out. it just doesn't have enough games that interest me or i have already played the ones i did like. would i still be able to get it every other month a game i do want comes out on it?
