Where's a good place to find the "big games" on Gamepass like Atomic Heart?

This game could be cool. Interesting genre mix.

Decent add to Game Pass. A game I considered picking up several times on PS5. Glad I waited.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Lamplighters looks good. I'm a sucker for turn based strategy.

I've played This War of Mine on Steam a little bit. Man, that's a heavy game.
Playing Contrast right now. Trippy platformer puzzle game. It's only a couple hours long. Also, Shadow Warrior 3. It's not as good as SW2 but it'll be fun for a few hours.

End of an era in terms of subbing, looks like:

Microsoft has reportedly removed the $1 Game Pass Ultimate offer from its storefront, Twitter users are currently reporting, and this can be confirmed by a visit to the store itself.

If true, I'm kinda surprised it took this long. Of course I'd prefer they keep it, just modify it - new subscribers only, or subscribers expired past X month, etc. But I know there's a lot going on with GPU and the ActiBlizz deal.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

My free trial is ending in April. What’s the best deal for me to renew it? Do they sell discounted 3 month or 1 year subscriptions?

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Best option still seems to be to buy up to three years of Xbox Live Gold, redeem them AFTER your existing trial/membership ends, then do the ‘Upgrade to Game Pass Ultimate’ deal. The last bit has been a $1 promo for years, but I don’t recall what the normal price is. Either way, it’s still significantly cheaper than buying 3 years of Ultimate at full price.

Another option, as noted here before, is to do the daily/weekly/monthly grind via MS Rewards (all the ones that don’t cost you money), but that can be quite a chore. I’ve gone back and forth on doing that myself, so I just buy discounted Ultimate when sales come up if/when my points balance is too low to redeem a free month.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Sorry to ask again, but my Ultimate Game Pass subscription ended. I was recommend to buy a year of Xbox Live Gold and upgrade it to Ultimate. It looks like I can get a year of Xbox Live Gold for $59.99.
Amazon Amazon

Can anyone tell me how much extra it will be to update it now that the $1 upgrade deal is over?

Looks like it will cost an extra $15 to convert it.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I just used that method and it worked. With tax it ended up costing me $82.29 for a year.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So if I already have Ultimate, I can wait for that to expire and do this process? (Assuming that the conversion is still active in the future)

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Wouldn't it be better to get 3 years gold + $15? Seems the $15 is per transaction not year.

True. Though if you don't want to commit to three years at a time, it's still a good deal.

I'm new to Game Pass and I didn't want to commit to three years. So, I only renewed for one year.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So all that hand-wringing over Xbox ending the $1 deal is literally over having to pay an additional $14, on a deal that can last for 3 more years?
