Microsoft has made clarity regarding the availability of Xbox Game Pass: at the moment the service will be available only on Xbox One and there are no plans regarding the eventual arrival on Windows 10.
The Xbox team is pleased to announce the new subscription service of Xbox Game Pass, which will allow users unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One games and Xbox 360 titles of backward compatible for Xbox One for $9.99 per month.
The FAQ page of the official website does not leave room for doubt: “Xbox Game Pass will only be available on Xbox One. While some Xbox 360 backwards compatible games will be included in Xbox Game Pass, those titles will not be available on the Xbox 360 console via your subscription.”
A spokesman for Microsoft confirmed on the pages of Polygon what is just written above: “It’s important to us that Xbox Game Pass provides an enjoyable and seamless experience. Right now, we’re focused on launching Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One consoles and look forward to bringing the service to the broader Xbox community later this spring.”
EA Access has proven as subscription services that can function within the world of video games and the announcement of Xbox Game Pass, however unexpected, is absolutely not a leap in the dark for Microsoft and in some ways this kind of services can be a fundamental part of the future of gaming.
