Microsoft launched its game subscription platform earlier this year called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The service bundles both the game subscription service with the required Xbox Live Gold online access. The best deal going is normally direct from Microsoft, where you can get two months for $1 frequently. After that, the service costs about $15 per month.
Amazon is offering Xbox gamers three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate via a download code for $44.99. The big deal here is that Amazon is offering a special promo that gets you an extra three months of Game Pass Ultimate for the same price. The second code will be emailed after purchasing the first code. There are caveats to the deal, however.
The code you get is valid through January 15, 2020. That means you can't buy multiple codes and use them for budget service for the next year. Only one extra three months subscription is available per account. If you are also ordering an Xbox One console, you can add the three-month membership for just $29.99.
For those unfamiliar with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, it includes access to over 100 games on console and PC. The games do have to be downloaded to play, and they can be accessed as long as the membership is in good standing. Since the games have to be downloaded, gamers will want to be sure they have plenty of space or a fast external drive to store them.
