The Microsoft Xbox Game Pass is a subscription game service from the company for Xbox players where titles were made available to those that subscribed. Microsoft brought the service to Windows as a new version of the subscription service altogether called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate earlier this year. Previously gamers could play the games with Game Pass service on either their PC or Xbox. But the condition was that the game had to be a PC game in order to be played on the PC, and there was no emulator involved in the whole thing. This was a result of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere initiative with most of the games being Microsoft’s own games like Forza Horizon 4 and Gears of War 4.
Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription gives access to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass games on Xbox and PC. The new subscription service from Microsoft, rolls Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass service into one subscription. This feature costs Rs 999 as a monthly subscription and was offered for the first month at Rs 50.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: 4 months at Rs 1,899
To avail this pricing for the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users will have to combine a couple of things. Microsoft is offering its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for Rs 50 again for the first month. And users have to choose to just subscribe for one month instead and have to pay just Rs 50. But there is a point to noted here, which is that the month with Rs 50 offer is over Microsoft will auto renew the service at its usual price of Rs 999 a month.
Hence we will turn off auto-renew and then buy the XBOX LIVE 3 Month Gold Membership Card (XBOX 360 & XBOX ONE) from Amazon. This is priced at Rs 1,849 and is for 3 months. This brings the total to Rs 1,899 instead of Rs 3,996 for 4 months.
