Xbox adds Netflix-style video game subscriptions

PS4, Xbox One and Steam account owners get a major discount of up to 67% on the game, its season pass and its DLC.

Sony makes a library of videogames available as part of a subscription service for PlayStation consoles, the latest generation of which has outsold Xbox One by about 2-to-1 according to market trackers.

Markets where Xbox Game Pass is launching included Australia, Britain, France, Hong Kong, India, and North America.

Anyone looking to give the game a try should do so this weekend.

Xbox Game Pass reflects Microsoft's continuing commitment to provide players the best games, with a low monthly price along with exclusive discounts. Sony is expected to announce the game titles list sometime next week. The catalog also comes along with indie and retro titles like the "Iron Brigade" and the 1995 arcade-style beat 'em up video game, "Comix Zone".

"This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for gamers". The sheer amount of games you have access to is certainly staggering, but not all 100 and more titles are going to appeal to everyone of course. You can enjoy the likes of Halo 5: Guardians, NBA 2K16, Lego Batman and more.

Xbox One Live creators program brings mouse and keyboard to Xbox One console. It's worth noting, however, that Bethesda requires Xbox users to have Gold Membership on Live in order to take advantage of the offer. Ho ho, have I got the news for you.

Xbox Live Gold members on the Xbox One are now able to experience the base game's enormous amount of gameplay experiences without any locked content until May 28, 11:59 pm PT.
