Xbox Game Pass and its PC counterpart are quickly becoming one of the best ways to shower yourself with games on the cheap. For £4/$5 a month you can currently download 372 games (though a few of these are dual editions of the same game), including new releases. It’s ridiculously good value, and not surprisingly it isn’t a huge money tap for Microsoft. 

It’s a common refrain: “How the hell does Microsoft make any money out of this?” If I was to buy only three games like Gears Tactics in the next year, that would set me back £150. With Xbox Game Pass, I can play as many as I have time for and, across the whole year, I’d pay less than £50. That’s a huge chunk of cash that a lot of people—in April there were 10 million subscribers—are no longer giving to Microsoft.
