It's a monthly subscription, but nothing like Netflix

Game Pass, which will launch later this spring, comes in addition to the regular Xbox Live subscription price. The pass will cost  £7.99 per month and include 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games, including the current gen titles. Even though it's a monthly deal, the service will not stream the games, rather the players will be able to download the titles to their console.

All Xbox One games available through the service will come at a 20 percent discount to all the players looking to keep a tittle permanently on their device.

A preview version of the Xbox Game Pass service is already available to the select few members of the Xbox Insider Program. Publishers whose games will be making an appearance include 2K, 505 Games, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, Sega, SNK, THQ Nordic and Warner Bros.
