    Is there any good deals for Game Pass 12 month subscriptions?

    • +1 vote

      Buy Gold on sale, convert to Ultimate.

      •  

        Can you convert if you already subscribed to Ultimate?

        •  

          Yep, but it's not a 1/1 ratio. I don't remember what it works out to be. Google will tell you though :)

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/481996 - I just used this method to get 3 years worth of Game Pass Ultimate for $132.40 ($10.95 x 12 + $1 deal to convert all existing Gold to Game Pass ultimate up to 36months. Best value around. I think it only works if your Gold has expired (as mine had). Obviously you can just buy less and get 12 Months Game Pass Ultimate for $44.80 ($10.95 x 4 + $1)

      •  

        I actually tried to do this method last night with no success. Must be because I previously had Game Pass Ultimate, would it be easy now for me to just purchase Gold and then Game Pass to see if the subscription extends?

      •  

        I take it this will work for new users?
        I seriously might consider the XB next gen or even pick up a cheap current gen if that’s the price for 3 years

      It’s actually a hedge trimming game!

    Looking forward to Two Point Hospital. Wondering how smooth they've made the controls for the controller, but wouldn't mind if kb/m support is included as well.

    Looks like I don't need to buy kingdom hearts anymore 😊

    Yakuza 0 is giving me Sleeping Dogs vibes. That’s a definite play on PC!

      I often post about it on here/upvote deals for it. Fantastic game.

    •  

      Much better game as well

    • +1 vote

      Not really all that much like Sleeping Dogs, but it is a fantastic game. As are all the Yakuza games. They are bloody ridiculous time sinks, though, if you do all the side quests etc. And if you don't do the side quests then the games aren't nearly as good since that's where the weirdest / funniest / most fun stuff tends to be.

    I don't understand the appeal of Kingdom Hearts.

    • +1 vote

      I liked it because of the gameplay, but the story has turned into shit. It's so convoluted.

      Over the years, KH has been too reliant on Disney, and it's starting to show. Example being the world of Frozen.
      Disney are so controlling over this IP that you don't get Elsa as a sidekick. Every other Disney world, you get the main character as your side kick.
      Also, you never get to visit the castle or her ice castle. TWICE you're conveniently thrown far away whenever you reach the ice castle. Instead most of the game you're wandering aimlessly in the snow and forest.

      I could go on and on about complaints, but you probably get the idea.

    I wonder how long these games will last.

    Is Yakuza 0 playable if it's the 6th in the series or totally unrelated.

    • +3 votes

      Definitely playable. It's actually a prequel to the series so it's the first game chronologically. This was the first Yakuza game I started with and oh boy what an introduction haha.

    •  

      0 is where I started, and it's my favourite of the series.

    • +1 vote

      0 is the best place to start the series these days, as it was followed by remakes of the first two games, and the fact that it's one of, if not the, best game in the series

    Game Pass is an amazing service for those who have time. But for those who do not, games leave like the wind. Sad!

    •  

      This is pretty much how I feel about Game Pass:

      I love it so much but it can get a little overwhelming at times.

      This game pass is so cool, with PS4 had something like this for Aussies.

    Does this mean Yakuza 0 will only be avail in Game Pass? I can't find info about a standalone release… (I'm a bit unfamiliar with how game subscription services work)

  •  

    Damn, bought Kingdom Hearts III on Boxing Day and haven’t even touched it.

    Ninja Gaiden II is 4k enhanced on XB1X. As icing on the cake, it originally played at 60fps, so it's now 4k 60fps.

    •  

      Awesome .. Great game !! Now just need the time to play it.

      •  

        Yep, I am a huge NG2 fan. I was so close to finishing the campaign on master ninja, but I just got too frustrated. And I hate those exploding knives so much.

  •  

    Sweet! Ninja Gaiden II and Yakuza 0.

  •  

    These gamepass post are excellent. Some pretty great games available to us…Makes me keep my subscription.

  •  

    Do games that leave the service make a return at some point??

  •  

    I just installed just cause 4 - if a game leaves game pass and you have it installed can you still play it or does the game no longer work?

    • +1 vote

      No longer work

      •  

        Thanks - will not invest the little time in have on it then - thank you

  •  

    Frantically waiting for Yakuza 0 to come on game pass already…
