Xbox Game Pass is one of the few subscriptions that I have kept while other services have moved. $15 monthly fee for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate feels worthwhile because I can choose from over 100 titles and regularly download new additions. In a year, the cost drops to about the price of three AAA games.
An Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription comes with access to EA Play and Xbox Live Gold. If you’re not interested in online multiplayer games, Microsoft offers a more budget-friendly tier that costs $10 a month. For gamers who don’t use Xbox, PC Game Pass ($10/month) has many of the same titles. (Do you have a PlayStation or a Switch? Check out our guide for the most popular way game subscription service.)
