    Is there a list of included games?

    •  

      I couldn't find it. And I also couldn't tell if this is a dollar for the first month only, or if it's that price permanently.

      Gamepass PC hasn't actually been launched officially yet. 6am AEST tomorrow is Microsoft's E3 Press Conference where it's going to be unveiled in full.

      With that said, you can see (a portion) of the initial launch library that have leaked out early here:

      Lot of good stuff.

    Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass are separate subscriptions?
    That's really annoying, I hope there's some backlash on that.

      It's supposed to be combined soon. All I want is halo….

      Gamepass PC, Gamepass Xbox, and Xbox Live Gold are all being bundled into a single subscription called "Gamepass Ultimate" which will have the same per-month cost as Xbox Live Gold + Xbox Gamepass. You will still be able to buy separately as well. I suspect GP Ultimate probably won't be available in cheaper bulk codes, but maybe they'll pleasantly surprise us.

      I can understand why they're separate subs, since they have to negotiate different deals and the libraries don't overlap entirely. But yeah it would have been awesome if it was all-in-one for the initial price. If you're a PC-only gamer, then this has a cheaper per month cost ($5/month instead of $12/month) so that's reasonably attractive as long as they add a steady stream of new stuff.

  •  

    That's neat. Cheaper for PC initially, woo!

  • +2 votes

    i think it is $1 for the first month then $4.95.

  •  

    I have more game pass than xbox live, so Im afraid to do it…

  •  

    Looking forward to this. I like the idea of monthly subscriptions. I read a list of potential games on Reddit

    Funny looking list of 100, have scientists changed our numbering system on us again?

    can't wait for battletoads to come out on it

        If that was the case then uplay, steam and origin wouldn't have practically every game with achievements…

          I’m sure there’s a small subset who enjoy them, so they’re there for them.

          But I question their sanity. If you need constant reinforcement that you’re “achieving” things, then you’ve got issues.

            @ajmlr: mate it's clearly not a small subset when it's at the forefront of the store and program

          • +1 vote

            @ajmlr: It’s literally a key marketing component to games. Almost everyone has it except Nintendo and epic games. UPlay and Xbox go a step further and has weekly challenges that get you reward points to trade in for discounts etc.

    I like Forza Horizon 4. Excellent deal.

    so I'm subscribed but when i try to install Sea of Thieves, it says no device found add a device first (even though i'm logged in on my gaming PC). So I try adding my PC as a device, but it keeps erroring out. Looked into it for another 20 mins, no luck. and no help to be found anywhere

    This thing doesn't feel ready at all

    Terrible app. All games are buggy and are unplayable or don't install. I normally install games on my D drive, however to install on D it wants all apps to install on there and to delete anything already installed on D.

    I want my time and my dollar back.

    •  

      I have uninstalled the app, cancelled the subscription and requested a refund.

      Hopefully Microsoft will do better with their xCloud gaming service.

    I had Gears of War 4 from their Microsoft Store. It's a total nightmare, 60GB after 60GB, and then if your connection lost or the app was closed, you have to start all over again. If there is an update, you will need to download the whole game again. Don't know why they can't learn from Steam. I will not buy anything from their store before they fix their broken distribution mechanism

      From what I understand this is a totally new launcher built from the ground up for games. That's the problem with the microsoft store, it was never built for games. It's really for windows apps etc etc. They should've created a client like this years ago.

      Hopefully this should be much better.

    So I can't even download the new xbox app since apparently I don't have the latest windows 10 update. Despite trying to update manually & it says I'm up to date.

    Just got this! Thanks.

  •  

    Ding, covered until the 1/8/2022..

    Thanks very much !

  •  

    Not a bad deal if you already have a gold/xbox game pass…. but the $15 a month for the pc game pass after the beta finishes is a bit rich. Lets hope the beta runs a long time and only have to pay $5 a month

  •  

    Does this $1 a month deal have an end date? Cause I want to jump on this deal in a few weeks after exams are finished, and it seemed like at the press conference they implied it will only be around for the duration of E3.

    •  

      and it seemed like at the press conference they implied it will only be around for the duration of E3.

      Then I would say it's probably going to last until Friday.

  •  

    When you scroll down to the bottom of
    "https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/xbox-game-pass"

    I noticed it said

    Gears of War 5 Ultimate edition.

    Does that mean that we get access to the game since we have access to gamepass?
    Or does that mean that we get to own the game?

  •  

    Has anyone tried extending for $4.95? I wanna buy a bunch of it at $5 a month but it says "subscribe" on the button so I imagine there's no actual way to extend the subscription just yet.

    •  

      Because the $5 amount is for beta only. So I'm guessing you can only sub one month at a time.

      Once beta is over the normal price is $10.95

  •  

    sorry, a noob question. do we own the games or access only as long as we are subscribed?

    •  

      You have access to the games as long as you are subscribed.

      Keep in mind games will come and go. BUT, games that are from Microsoft's studios (Forza, Gears, Halo, Crackdown, etc) won't be removed.
