The future is quite possibly the subscription services and is not something you discuss it for free by the new Microsoft service, channels such as Netflix and PlayStation Now, seems that they imposed in the future as formulas to follow majority.
Microsoft anticipates the rest with Xbox Game Pass (speaking of the market of video games). With a subscription that will cost €9.99 per month, you can access more than 100 games. These games will be downloaded and in the moment in which you canceléis your subscription you will never use them. The service will begin this spring. The catalogue will be expanding and rotating. Mention that it is a separate Xbox Live Gold service and it will not be necessary to hire Gold to enjoy Game Pass, unless you want to play online, so yes it will be necessary to have Gold.
Microsoft has yet to confirm the catalogue output and at the moment, most are products of the previous generation, but it is expected that the service is proposing a mix of products.
