Unlimited access to a game library for a fixed and pre-determined monthly fee is gaining momentum these days, when digital and virtual ownership of titles has become accepted and routine and the huge selection available in the market reduces the chances to legally and fully purchase all the works we are interested in. Which is growing along with the growing popularity of Netflix itself, and it seems that more and more companies in the world are realizing this and adapting themselves to the situation.
Microsoft did this a few months ago with the launch of the Xbox Game Pass service, which costs only $ 10 (after 14 free trial days) and gave access to more than 100 different games onXbox One Unlimited, including all the big and up-to-date brands of the gaming division at Microsoft itself of course. Even gamers who own Windows 10 computers, without a living room console, could enjoy access to a number of up-to-date games as part of the Game Pass service, thanks to the Xbox Play Anywhere program that provides equivalent ownership of games that also supportXbox One And inPC.
The technology giant was enthusiastic about the general concept and recently decided to introduce the service as well.Xbox All Access in North America - where as part of a regular monthly payment, consumers will receive both a physical console and access to its games, as a complete package that does not require the investment of hundreds of dollars as a starting point.
We now receive official confirmation that Microsoft plans to expand the availability of their monthly payment services to PCs as well. Windows - CEO Satya Nadella has announced that the Game Pass will also be launched in Windows 10 later, with the same monthly payment of $ 10 and with a list of available titles that will naturally be richer than what is available to computer owners now with Xbox Play Anywhere.
Xbox Game Pass onXbox One Currently includes over 200 different games that can be downloaded and installed at any given time for subscribers, with new additions every month - and it is reasonable to estimate that inPC We see a similar variety and selection, with slight changes in the framework of titles launched for consoles but not for computers and therefore will not be available - and at the same time some titles that are available only for computers and may join the offer.
This will be definitely a good news for all game lovers who want to experience as many different works for as low a price as possible - and together with the Origin Access (or Origin Access Premier) service from EA Games Which also gives access to hundreds of different games for an initial monthly fee of 4 euros will be a pretty impressive combination here, with many hundreds of newer and less new creations (and large notebooks but also from modest indie developers) for a few tens of new shekels each month.
