    It's $11/month on Xbox, you'd assume it would be a similar price right?

    so this is how they are finally going to get people to use the Microsoft Store?

    i'm guessing closer to Origin Access basic?

    at least THIS move is pro-consumer. Credit where it's due this is great news.

    Pricing and line up announced, complete trash. They also have the balls to announce a premium version that includes multilayer.

    I had two years of game pass and one year of gold that consolidated into three years of Ultimate so the price is something for me to worry about in June 2022 ;)

    I just did the same.
    If you upgrade to the Ultimate pass for $1 they will rollover your current Xbox live membership. So you can essentially get up to 36 months of Ultimate pass for the same price of just having a Gold membership anyway.

    $1 for the first month and $5/month thereafter for Metro Exodus? Sign me up!

    At least it's not the Epic Store, but that's for another thread.
