Gaming is a costly affair, and apart from investing a lot of money while buying a gaming console or a gaming PC, gamers have to invest in each new game as well. And some AAA gaming titles such as GTA V, Battlefield 2042, Spiderman Miles Morales, and Demon’s Souls could cost upwards of ₹5,000. Fortunately, Microsoft wants to change that and make gaming more affordable by offering Xbox Game Pass, a game subscription service that costs less than ₹500 per month and offers more than 500 games that you can play anytime. The Xbox Game Pass library includes a wide range of games for Xbox and Windows PCs for a fraction of the amount that you would otherwise spend on purchasing those games individually.

What is Xbox Game Pass?

microsoft_xbox_game_pass_benefits

Xbox Game Pass is a game subscription service for Xbox-branded gaming consoles and PCs that run the Windows operating system. You can use Xbox Game Pass by paying a monthly fee of ₹489 ($10 in the US) or higher. It offers more than 400 games, including popular ones like Forza Horizon 4, GTA 5, Halo, and Minecraft.

Xbox Game Pass works on the following devices:

  • Microsoft Xbox One X
  • Microsoft Xbox One S
  • Microsoft Xbox Series X
  • Microsoft Xbox Series S
  • PCs & Laptops running Windows 10
  • PCs & Laptops running Windows 11
  • Android smartphones and tablets via Project xCloud game streaming (not available in India yet)
  • iPhones & iPad via Project xCloud game streaming (not available in India yet)

Let us compare the cost of buying individual games with the cost of the Xbox Game Pass subscription. If you buy just four gaming titles (Forza Horizon 4, GTA 5, Halo, and Minecraft) individually, you will end up paying more than Rs 8,000 in India. In comparison, Xbox Game Pass costs just ₹489 per month, and you can complete these games within six months, which means that you pay less than ₹3,000. Plus, you get other 400 games, which include AAA gaming titles from Bethesda, iD, EA, and other publishers. It also includes a lot of indie games. It is clear that Xbox Game Pass is a lot more affordable, especially in the long run.
