OK, in case y'all are not paying attention (looking at you ZamZow)

Microsoft has come up with a subscription that is a winner in my mind.


3 Products that can be purchased separately, and you can cancel them at any time. You can buy by the month/ 3 mn / 6mn / year
(1) Xbox Live Gold, so you can use the Xbox Online,
(2) Xbox Game Pass, which allows you to play any of 100 games on Xbox and PC if allowed (requires XBL)
(3) Xbox Game Pass PC, which allows you play games on the PC.

Big Doggie Door: Game Pass Ultimate - $14.99 a month
Ultimate gives you ALL 3 of these for one price.
But the really awesome thing is this: Right now, you can sign up for 1 month for a $1
** Here is the Awesomeness** IF you have any Xbox Gold Live months remaining, they will be converted to Game Pass Ultimate. So consider: You can buy a 12 MO XBL at Walmart for $59 .... this gets converted to Game Pass Ultimate
Math Part: You spent $59, you get $180 upgrade to Ultimate. You can convert up to 36 Months this way. More Math: Getting the 2 year XBL from Costco for $95 will get you $360, or a $250 dollar savings.

But you say Bill, I hate the Xbox!
Yeah ok, so right now instead of $9.99 a month for the Game Pass PC, you can sign up for $4.99 a month.

Real World: Forza Horizon 4 is stupid fun on the Xbox. I bought the Ultimate Version, which is $100. If I had hated it, it would have been a waste of money. But with Game Pass, you get the Ultimate version when you play it. And the new MS Flight SImulator will be available on Game Pass Day One.

Sorry for the Commercial, I just wanted you to see the huge savings they are offering right now, and I think it is worth it!
