Microsoft doubles down on ambitious subscription plan

Xbox's on-demand games subscription service Game Pass has proven successful since its launch last spring, and now the company is looking to expand the service to better serve its audience. It's always been a neat little extra, but as of this week it's evolving into something much more useful.

All the Xbox One games including the Xbox Play Anywhere titles will be compatible with this newly launched console and it also includes the Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games and accessories.

Xbox One exclusives like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2 will be available on day one for Xbox Games Pass subscribers. After getting beaten out by Sony during that fateful E3 Microsoft has really kicked it into overdrive - competition is good! "We know our fans value having a variety of games to play at a low monthly price".

Today, January 23, Microsoft launched the Xbox One X in India, which is presently the most powerful gaming console in the world. It is also the smallest and most feature-rich Xbox ever. The latter of which has taken an interesting new jump in merging its flagging exclusive games lineup with one of its core strengths: backwards compatibility and digital-based focus.

However, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that future releases from the gaming giant - including the upcoming Sea Of Thieves, which is out on March 20 - would also launch on Game Pass on the same day. Therefore, you can say that Microsoft's new direction is downright game-changing.

"We've only scratched the surface of the opportunity this new model brings to the industry and what we can deliver to our fans". Still, this new initiative from Microsoft is very generous and will entice more people to play games digitally from now on.

Xbox One X can be purchased online in India from Flipkart, Amazon and (naturally) Microsoft India store.
