    Excellent!

    Excellent! As a parent of 3 (2 being teen) who occasionally play video games, it's hard to justify the cost of one game. I've seen it time and time again, where they’ve saved up their money in order to buy a certain game. When they’re tired of it, it’s worth a tiny fraction of what we paid. The Xbox Game Pass is perfect! The library is full of new as well as old games, and accessible at the click of a button. The newest games are available on release day, without worrying leaving the house. I love that they can “rent” the games that they want to play, when they want to play them, and they’ve got so much more selection than they could ever have if we bought games individually. My 13 year old son said it was extremely easy to set up and access from his Xbox One. I actually didn’t have to do much more than tell him that we had it, and he was off to explore. My 11 year old daughter also has been more interested in the Xbox One, because she can try out different kinds of games without actually buying them. She’s never really had the opportunity to explore the different kinds of games, but now she can. I think the price is very reasonable too. If we looked at the cost of other games (either off the shelf, or miscellaneous smartphone apps), the monthly Game Pass subscription is still well below the other options – and the options without commitment is priceless. We’ve already paid out for the Xbox One, might as well get as much use as we can out of it. As a mom, can I give a high-five at the fact that there are no discs and cases to be lost or scattered?

    Great product for the average gamer

    The Xbox game pass was advertised very well and I had a great idea of what to expect. It was more or less a Netflix version for Xbox games. Just as Netflix is with movies, the pass has some games that are better than others. The pass was very easy to use and I had no problems setting it up. I would recommend it to any gamers that are interested in a variety of games. The only improvements I see with the game pass, in general, is a wider selection of sports games as well as increasing download time. Games take a very long to download and can take a day or two depending on the size. Other than that I see the price for this game pass as very well worth it for the average consumer. Being able to spend 9.99 a month for over 100 games cannot be beaten. The games are also categorized to find what best suits your style of games. You can easily search through the database of games and find new releases, action games, car racing games and the list goes on and on. If you are a customer of Xbox and are spending a lot on multiple games purchased individually, this investment would be well worth it in the long run. If consumers have trouble understanding the concept of what the game pass is, it should be advertised as the Netflix of games. Everyone knows and is very familiar with Netflix and what they do, so explaining the game pass as similar to that will allow customers to properly understand what this game pass is all about.

    Great subscription service for gamers!

    If you consider yourself a serious gamer, or just someone who just plays a few games a month, the Xbox Game pass is definitely for you. There are so many great game options, especially so many titles that I would have never have just bought outside of this service before playing. Usually I tend to play mostly sports games (my one feedback would be including more of these), but I was really glad I downloaded a variety of games outside of what I am used to. I would not even consider myself a serious gamer, but immediately I saw the value of this subscription with how many great games there were. I really like how you are able to search through the selection and how it is categorized based on topic, so I can easily browse. It was easy to download, however it did take a decent amount of time to fully download each game. I did experience a similar situation when I bought and downloaded Madden 18 last year, so it was nothing new. Overall, the Xbox Game Pass was easy to use, and I felt like there were always more options to try. For the price of $9.99 it is definitely worth every penny. This really changes how I go about looking for new games versus having to buy just 1 or 2 at full price and hoping I like them. Hopefully new and exciting games will continue to be available with the Xbox game pass and I will be definitely recommending this to friends and family.

      Hey there,

      Thanks for recommending Xbox Game Pass as a great subscription service for gamers! As you point out, one of the awesome benefits of Xbox Game Pass is getting to try out games that you may not have played otherwise. New games, including Xbox exclusives such as Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2, are getting added regularly as well. We're glad that you're a fan!

    This Microsoft Game Pass is pretty KEWL!! I had my suspicions on how well the games would load and function, but they worked flawlessly. There are games suited for everyone in the family. Lots of options that I would have never purchase individually on my own, but love having the ability to play. I would not consider myself a gamer and I stick with a few core games, so this opened a whole new world to me. While I am pleased about the vast array of games; the only downfall is that I wish it did give you access to some of the “big name” games via the Pass. The user interface to find the games was very intuitive. I really like how you can search through the selection and how it is categorized based on topic, so I can easily browse and select games that interested me. Also, my kids had no problem getting it set up and navigating through it. Overall, lots of great games, easy to navigate the selections, awesome to be able to try lots of games without buying them, and they loaded and worked properly on my system. It is a wonderful concept and worth it.

    I've been using the Microsoft Xbox Game Pass for the last couple of weeks. I received the code quickly and was able to easily log-in and gain access to a ton of games. Downloading the games was quick and easy as well! I like the large selection of games, though they mostly seem to be older games. I also really like that there is a wide variety of game play available, from puzzle games, strategy games, war games, etc. Additionally, I like that the fact that I can instantly download and play games that I was interested in playing, but never got around to purchasing. While I know brand new releases will never be available right away, I'd like to see some newer games available for download. Overall, I'm very happy with the Game Pass and would recommend it to all my gaming friends.

      One great benefit that you may not have been aware of is that some Xbox exclusives -- such as Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and the upcoming Forza Horizon 4 and Crackdown 3 -- release on Xbox Game Pass brand-new at the same time as they launch to the general public. So if you're a Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you get to try these games right away -- no wait necessary!

    This Microsoft Game Pass is AWESOME! There are so many games to choose from, and there is something for everyone in the family. Got a little kid? There's games for them to play. Got a big kid and/or a husband? There's games for them. There's even Miss Pac-Man for the vintage game lover! Quest games. Strategy games. Shoot-'em-up games. The game pass is super easy to use. My kids had no problem getting it set up and navigating through it. A nice feature of it is being able to just go to the games section to see what's available instead of having to go to the store. It's convenient to see what's available apart from what you've already downloaded. Overall, this is a fantastic way to try and play a lot of games without having to break the bank to do so. I'm very pleased

    I have loved the Xbox Game Pass. I like the Game Pass because it gives me the ability to download and play the games without having to make a major purchase of the game. Allows me to try out games and see if it is something I want to purchase as well. There is lots of games on there to choose from. This is my first purchase of something like this and I have really enjoyed it. I have downloaded about 15 games so far to play. I wish there was more games on there or away to try out some of the other xbox games before making a purchase of them but I am sure something of this ability is coming soon. Overall the game pass has been great and I will for sure keep my subscription going for a while now.

    5 Stars Gary Wilds I consider myself an above moderate gamer. I have some favorites but always interested in trying the new games. It can become a financial investment to purchase every games. The Xbox Game Pass is awesome. You get unlimited access to such a large catalog of games. The monthly fee is low. I recommend this to all gamers. It can take a little bit of time to download the games but that is expected in my book. I like how things are organized. They will recommend games based on your likes but games are also easy to search by type of games. I have played close to 20 games at this point and have ventured out of my "comfort" zones. I would say it has broaden the type of games I am interested in.

    My thoughts on the Xbox Game Pass was that is was a good product because you get access to a large library with one low purchase. But the one thing I don't like about the Xbox Game Pass was how you had to download the games, because it did take quite a bit of time to download the games. The variety of games if great, there are so many game to choose from and I feel like I am getting so more much value than buying individual games. I have even tried some games that I would have normally passed by. The concept of the games pass is brilliant. I plan to keep my membership after my trial period.

    Xbox game pass is a perfect way to try out a variety of games without having to purchase the entire game. There is a wide selection of games available to download and see if you like or dislike it before spending the money on buying the game for yourself. Some games available we wouldn’t normally purchase but after trying them out with game pass we will buy before our subscription is up. There is also several 360 games available to play on Xbox One that aren't cross compatible which was a huge plus for my family. Overall we are pleasantly surprised and happy with the xbox game pass

    Ilove the Xbox Game Pass. There are so many games to choose from for the whole family. It's fast and convenient to pick and download the games right at your fingertips! It saves lots of time from going to the store and usually overpaying for them. U also don't have to worry about scratching or losing a disc or having the games take up space in a drawer or on a shelf! We use it daily! My son uses it the most and has no complaints except for how long it takes to download the games, but that's with any game. The games we buy at the store are the same way! Great product!!!

    If you're a new Xbox owner, this is a must have! So many quality games like Fallout 4, The Division, Halo 5, Elder Scrolla Online, State of Decay, etc. There is no better gaming value than Game Pass and it'll be an Xbox seller for parents out there. The only question is how long do we have to play these games until they rotate out again?

    A 6 month Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to games which you would otherwise not purchase or try while also giving you access to premium games. This is perfect for someone like me who is new to a gaming console by giving me various options to practice before deciding what I want to play.
