Interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, Phil Spencer stated that in the future the price of Xbox Series X / S and Game Pass could increase, for the moment there are no certain plans in this regard, no immediate price increases are expectedbut as Spencer himself reiterated, nothing lasts forever.
Let’s assume that in the near future Microsoft is really forced to increase the price of Game Pass, what would be a fair price for the subscription? There are currently three different subscriptions: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for 12.99 euros per month, Xbox Game Pass for 9.99 euros per month and PC Game Pass for 9.99 euros per month.
The Ultimate membership is obviously the most affordable as it includes in addition to Game Pass also benefits to Xbox LIVE Gold and access to EA Play. Less convenient are the basic subscriptions on Xbox and PC, offered at 9.99 euros per month.
A possible solution to raise prices without upsetting consumers too much could be to lower the price of these two proposals (7.99 euros? 8.99 euros) and at the same time perhaps bring the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate price at 14.99 euros or 15.99 euros per month.
And you how much would you be willing to pay for the monthly Game Pass subscription? Let us know below in the comments.
