Reports from Thurrott and The Verge have backed up an initial allegation posted on Twitter which suggests that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be priced at $14.99 USD per month. For reference, Aussies, an Xbox Live Gold subscription is currently set at $9.99 USD.
Microsoft, of course, said it will not speculate on the rumours. We’ll have to wait and see if this report is true. Personally, I’m all for it — having one subscription rather than two just makes me feel a bit easier; I’m already juggling subscriptions to Netflix, DC Universe, Plex, Spotify, PlayStation Plus and Nintendo Switch Online in addition to Xbox’s offerings. Ben and I actually talked about this quite a bit in the most recent Friendly Fire Show.
We’ll keep you informed as more is known.
