    And anyone right now with a Xbox gold sub can for £1/$1 convert their gold sub to a Unltimate pass and gain the equivalent time in gamepass access on both xbox and PC, but if you don't have a xbox gold sub then hey, a £1/$1 for a month of PC game pass, what is not to like. ;)

    eh? subcripsion base pc gaming pass? monthly? eh I rather pay for my game and own it then subscription and never own any them, even if it is that cheap those do look like Consoles game though? or are this actual pc games?

    Cloud gaming/subscription gameing? just no unless it a MMO. call me old or what ever but I like to actual own my games. And I prefer physical disc over digital atlest when it come to consoles.

    sorry but where does it say 1$/month. Both on the German and US sites it says 4,99$/E/month during beta and 9.99 afterwards. and you can join for 1$/E today as in pay 1 $ just to be allowed to join.
    Or do you have another link?

    It does say it in the xbox game pass site.
    $1 for 1 month
    $XXX after that every month. For me in Canada that would be $4.50 USD a month.

    My receipt after buying

    I agree, though, this is actually a pretty good deal, especially if you play games with poor replay value or certain multiplayer-only games that lose relevancy in a couple years (like BF or COD).

    I won't be subscribing to this, but, I could see myself recommending it to some people.

    I know right, i am subbed right up until 09/21, plus today they just added Shenmue 1/2 and Metro ex to the GP, and The Outer worlds will launch on GP 4 days early in October. O:

    And remember to go into your account and disable auto renew, takes all of 10 seconds. ;)

    It's a dollar....not sure how long it will be for that price. I'd hate to see your decision making on something...expensive. :p
    @gerardfraser answered your questions already..

    What's also nice is that video games you would like to own forever are provided to you at a discounted rate. It's a great try-before-you-buy but if there's a lot of Microsoft games, and some third party games, that you'd like to play but can't feasibly afford it in your budget then this is a great alternative.

    So i started using the Xbox app for PC since yesterday, first month is 1$ and since yesterday i already installed, Hellblade, Astroneer, Gears of War 4, and about to test Sea of thieves.

    Really cool experience so far, (even if i had to force my windows update to May Patch v1903).

    The main thing i'm a bit mad about is that there's still lack of fullscreen support for windows store Games/apps. To be able to go fullscreen (for which i had noticeably better performance in Hellblade), i had to force windows in tablet mode !

    Maybe i'm missing something, if someone could point me into the right direction in that case i would be grateful, but no fullscreen support is a huge downer for me.
    Prevent quality streaming in the process.

    It's alot more than a few, it's missing a couple of big ones like Doom and Batman AK, but i can see Hellblade, TR and even Metro Exodus.

    Due to stores like Steam, EGS etc. I never thought it would launch on the PC as I didn't think MS would be able to get enough third party games. The selection on the Xbox is still better though.

    I'm liking this as there are games I would never buy as I would probably get better performance on the X1X, but now I can actually find out.
    I'm still pretty sure I have no chance with Metro Exodus though.

    XenthorX, I installed We Happy Few a couple of days ago and didn't have that issue. Will test again and see if i do, or if i an make that happen.
