The step by step guide to convert your Xbox Live Subscription into Game Pass Ultimate
If you want to enjoy a variety of games via subscription, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass are excellent options. The subscription, which includes AAA titles like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 as well as rotations of major third-party games and indies, generally costs $14.99 per month for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (which covers both Xbox and PC) or $9.99 per month for PC Game Pass.
If you want to give it a shot, there’s introductory pricing of $1 for one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. However, before you redeem it, you should be aware that you may use the trial to save a significant amount of money on Game Pass Ultimate for up to three years.
Xbox owners can acquire up to 36 months of prepaid Xbox Live Gold service from Microsoft. Additionally, activating the $1 trial will change future months of Gold service to the more expensive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, saving you hundreds of dollars. To give you an idea of how much money you can save, three years of Xbox Live Gold costs around $180. With the $1 discount, you can purchase three years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for roughly $181 — whereas paying the full $14.99 per month for Game Pass Ultimate would cost you over $540.
