Every single Xbox One and Xbox 360 game for Xbox Game Pass

Gaming is increasingly becoming a luxury activity these days, what with the rising cost of just about…everything. There are ways around this of course, like reigning in your FOMO for an entire year so that you can grab a quality title for cheap well after launch. Microsoft has an alternative but similar solution for the cash-strapped gamer: Xbox Game Pass.

Essentially a buffet of games, it’s a service which has the potential to be expanded on in the future to include even newer games in its library, although the selection on offer right now ain’t too shabby provided that you enjoy a comprehensive list of backwards compatible titles. The Xbox Game Pass service launches officially on June 1, but if you happen to have an Xbox Live Gold subscription then you’re in luck: You can jump in right now.

There is a caviar caveat here of course – It’s not available locally in the sunniest corner of Africa. You’ll need to set your console to the Americas to download your subscription with a payment option also listed beyond our borders, which includes the following list of games via VG247:

Added bonus: If you decide to own a game with a straight-up digital buy outside of the subscription, you’ll earn yourself between 10-20% off of any DLC attached to it, if the game is in rotation. That’s a pretty solid list of titles to start off with, for $9.99 a month. The way I see it, the service is perfect for families with a decent online connection. It should be easily capable of shutting the youngest members of your family up for a bit so that you can do other adult stuff, like taxes and Grey’s Anatomy dinner parties.

I have no idea how to adult good.
