    I didn't know if anyone saw this today.  Here is the link.

    Kind of like a" Netflix of rotating games to play" that you pay for a flat fee each month.  This may be a great idea for people since you wouldn't have to buy the whole library of games.

    This is from their article....looks like spring....


    Before the program rolls out to the broader community later this spring, we’ll be testing Xbox Game Pass with select members of the Xbox Insider Program in the Alpha Preview ring starting today with a very limited number of titles. The titles that are available in Preview are just a small glimpse at the expansive catalog of games that will be available when Xbox Game Pass launches this spring. Xbox Live Gold members will also be receiving exclusive access to Xbox Game Pass prior to the program launching to the broader community. We’ll have more details on timing closer to launch.

    I'm really excited about it. Might try it out and see if there's any games I can jump in. I already have a big backlog of games to get to, so this is just going to give me too much.

    Looks like this went live this weekend.  June 1 is the official start date.  You have to have a credit or debit card or Paypal to pay for the monthly service.  Free 14 day trial is running right now.  75% of the games are 360 games, which is disappointing for the launch of a new XBOX ONE service.

    Yeah I think only gold subs can register for the free trial. I might check it out tonight just to see what it offers. 

     

    I figured they'd toss up a lot of 360 games. The good news, is that I hear they plan to add more quite often.

    If you use BING rewards points, you can redeem your reward points for 1 or 12 month memberships for the Gaming Pass.  I just saw this on the "redeem" page.  Considering there are much fewer options for Bing rewards points, this may be a good way to try out the service.

    Yeah I was thinking about doing that, but I'm probably going to pick up a gift card instead.
