Ah, the Xbox Live Gold is where I got lost on. I don't need that for multiplayer on PC? Just console?Gold = Xbox Live Gold multiplayer service (only needed on console) + Games With Gold (monthly and bi-weekly free games, console only) + Discounts With Gold (PC and console)
PC = Xbox Game Pass for PC (PC only)
Ultimate = Xbox Game Pass + Xbox Live Gold + PC Game Pass
The link I provided above is for the PC Game Pass. If you don't have an Xbox then you just want Game Pass for PC.
Ja, it's just a bundle for people in their ecosystem they have only one payment instead of three separate ones. It's certainly worth it if you play on each platform, as individually you would be paying $300 a year instead of $180.+1
So PC version is going to my choice then. Wasn't sure if the benefits of Ultimate were worth it for PC. Doesn't look like it.
that would be quite the deal if you got to keep the games after your subscription ended ...everyone would sign up for 1 month, download all the games they want and cancelStupid question, do you get to play the game for 3 months or do you get to keep the game after 3 months?
indeed, I didn't know if it was like the xbox live gold 1-2 free games per month. I see it is a subscription to play A list titles. I will redeem mine to try forza horizon 4, though I do prefer straight up Forza .that would be quite the deal if you got to keep the games after your subscription ended ...everyone would sign up for 1 month, download all the games they want and cancel
That's really the only thing I don't like about the Xbox app. Hopefully, they change that since every other client of its type allows you to choose where you want your games and doesn't tie it in to some obscure Windows setting. Ugh.Can you specify install location of games on Game Pass? I want to give it a shot for a few titles like Metro, but my Windows partition is only 100gb as I install Steam/Origin games to another partition.
Edit: you can, but it's janky - you have to set the drive as the default place new apps will install. Dumb, I want all my Windows/dekstop apps on C: for backup image purposes, and games on D:. I believe I can just flip it back to C: default after installing each game but nonetheless, janky.
