With Xbox Game Pass, you can access hundreds of games for a low monthly fee. Game Pass subscribers also get a discount at a certain rate if they want to buy games. When all this comes together, Game Pass is a profitable service. The Game Pass library continues to expand day by day. Considering the game prices in our country, Game Pass is the most profitable way to access games for Xbox consoles.
Game Pass’s monthly subscription price is affordable, so players can spend more money. It can access a game in the library at a more affordable price or buy DLC packs for that game. As such, players spend more money on a platform like Game Pass.
Sarah Bond, corporate vice president of Gaming Ecosystem at Microsoft, gave some statistics about this situation in an interview with Forbes. Bond noted that Game Pass subscribers spend 20 percent more money playing games, while the time allocated to games is 20 percent more. In addition, Game Pass subscribers play 30 percent more games than other digital gaming platforms and service subscribers. Finally, Game Pass subscribers are trying out 40 percent more game types.
It’s amazing how much you spend on a low-cost service like Game Pass. Sarah Bond gives an example of this situation, “When you subscribe to a service like Netflix, you don’t spend extra money. However, when you subscribe to a service such as Game Pass, you may want to access DLC for games there or have in-game purchases. In this case, you’re spending more money on the Game Pass service.”
The subscription service, which gained more popularity with the addition of Bethesda games to the Game Pass library, continues to attract players who love different genres, including EA Play.
