So it's EA Access but with multiple game publishers? Sounds good at the moment, hopefully it won't be a let down with no good games

I'm really excited for this. I love EA Access and am sure I will enjoy this when it gets released.

The current game selection is pretty small. Only a few big titles and mostly older 360 arcade games(few retails).

If you join the program via the Insider app, you'll be prompted to "purchase"(for free) a one month pass to Xbox Game Pass. If I understand correctly too, we should also be getting a "trial" period for Xbox Gold members after it goes public.

Free month+ of free games, I can't complain.

Good thing about ea access is u get a free 3 hour trail with games. This could be a good idea for Xbox pass as I have brought so many digital **** games

This is interesting, but this concerns me:
Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly-updating library of games. Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play.
What if you're in the middle of a game that gets cycled out? Or, what if you want to play a game just to find out it got cycled out?

I don't know how I feel about this, but it's interesting. Hell, if there was a game I wanted to play but not buy, I'd pay $9.99 to play it for a month.

I'm not sure how to feel about that either. I think we should be able to play any game whenever.

They should give you some sort of time slot of it cycling it out. I don't know if they will, but they should.

If you actually went to the website shown in the OP, it's only going to be $9.99 per month.

I wouldn't expect super great games but better than EA Access... Which essentially offers f*** all unless you are into sports games.

In the article it mentions games like Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II. So we could very well see some good games in there.

Most likely we'll see first party Microsoft games, so that'll be good too.

I'm personally concerned they're going to offer more backwards compatibile games than Xbox One games.

Regardless, if you think about it $9.99 is a good price. In comparison, I waste more than that just on Rockstars or Monsters in a week lol

Yay. For only $10, I'm tempted to get it. I'll have to see what games are on it.
