And joining now coverts your previous memberships into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription time.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is $1 — in whatever your local currency is — for your first month thanks to a fantastic deal offered during E3 2019.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate combines three different Xbox subscriptions — Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Live Gold — for one monthly price. We’ve previously compared pricing models here, but for the most part, it’s a damn good deal (especially at $1 AUD for that first month).
Moreover, Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions are rolled into your Xbox Game Pass membership; I just paid $1 AUD myself and had everything roll together for a total of 36 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Fair warning though: if you’ve been squirreling away cheap subscriptions when they become available, you may lose out — you can get up to a total of 36 months of subscription, no matter how much credit you may have.
“Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your remaining Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass membership(s) into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for the same amount of time, up to a total of 36 months,” an FAQ reads when you covert. “All conversions are final; conversion ratio subject to change.”
