Microsoft Reportedly Combining Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Subscriptions
Microsoft may be offering a unified package for Xbox users subscribing to both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.
Initially unveiled by Twitter user (and known Xbox leaker) h0x0d and first reported by The Verge. The package is reported to cost $14.99 USD per month and assumedly contains all the services included in both subscriptions including access to online multiplayer, free and discounted monthly games and access to Xbox exclusives and any other games included in the Game Pass catalog.
Each service currently costs $9.99 per month on a month-to-month subscription, meaning that this new option would save players roughly $5 per month – though it is possible that, if confirmed, the service may feature lower rates for annual or semi-annual subscriptions.
IGN reached out to Microsoft for comment and were told, “We do not comment on rumors or speculation.” Even so, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the services combined, as its likely we may see a disc-less Xbox One available within the next few months.
JR is IGN’s Senior Features Editor, who’s still yet to try Game Pass but this might get him to. You can follow him on Twitter @USofJR.
