Two and a half years ago Electronic Arts launched EA Access, and finally Microsoft and Xbox is catching up to the future of gaming.
In the next few months Microsoft will be rolling out “Xbox Game Pass” and for $9.99/month you get access to a full library of games.
They are promising over 100 games from the Xbox One and 360 collections, and a rotating stock to choose from.
And as long as you are a subscriber you can continue playing whatever you download.
Meanwhile, these games are not streaming and laggy, but rather downloaded to your device like standard games.
And while services like this usually include only second-tier games, they are promising some big names on opening day including Halo 5, Payday 2, and SoulCalibur II.
