Xbox Game Pass: My Thoughts

Hey Guys, what do you get if you mix merge Netflix and gaming? Other than PlayStation Now, you get the Xbox Game Pass. What exactly is the Xbox Game Pass, let me explain and give my almost useless opinion to you all.

For $9.99 a month, you get access to "100s" of games available for download on your Xbox One and Xbox 360. However, Windows 10 users will not be able to benefit from this program. However, keep in mind that the games available are time limited, so there are new games avaible each month.

If you have any interest in any of the game you play through the service, you can buy it at a 20% discount. Alright, now onto my thoughts.

I have mixed thoughts on this. Even though there are services like GameFly and Redbox that already allow video game rentals, it's convenient and cost-efficient to be going using this serive. Sure, it may suck that they are time-limited, but a month is more than enough time for someone to tell if they will be interested in buying a game.

The major question is: what games will be featured with the service? Will they be those games nobody cares about that Microsoft usually makes free or will they be games from years ago?

I'm surprised that this service is only $9.99, so that's what is making me a bit nervous as to the quality of games that will be featured in the service.
Till Next Time!!
