During the last few years of Xbox One and the beginning of the upcoming X and S series, Microsoft seems to have placed a big bet on its game subscription service “Xbox Game Pass.” For just £7.99 a month, Xbox owners can use many games, including the latest version of Microsoft’s first game. Although the price structure seems too good, Spencer, the head of Xbox, said the service is sustainable, claiming that stability can be achieved without increasing prices.
In a recent interview as part of the Dropped Frames Podcast, the head of Xbox called the game subscription service “fully sustainable, and I mean,” and added that there are no plans to artificially increase the number of subscribers by reducing costs, and only later “Increase the price.”
Currently, Xbox Game Pass for PC or Xbox costs £7.99 per month (total £95.88 per year). For those who want the best of both worlds, the price of Game Pass Ultimate is £10.99 per month (£131.88 per year). Although these subscriptions do bring considerable revenue to Microsoft, the service will provide all first-party Xbox titles for dates and dates for free.
Certain next-generation games have a single price of up to £69.99. Understandably, some people worry that prices may inevitably rise. If Phil Spencer has nothing to say, I hope this is not the case.
