Xbox One X will come packaged with a 1-month Xbox Game Pass subscription

This year has seen 2 major announcements by Microsoft on its gaming front – first came Xbox Game Pass, a Netflix-style game subscription service. Then, this week, the company unveiled its Xbox One X gaming console at E3.

Many hoped that Xbox Game Pass would come packaged with new Xbox consoles, as it gives new gamers to the Xbox platform a whole host of games to get stuck in to – meaning, a new console comes with a bunch of games, no need to go and buy games separately right away.

Luckily, Microsoft believes this to be the right direction, too. Its Microsoft Store listing for the Xbox One X now shows that it will come with a 1-month Xbox Game Pass subscription, in addition to the always-expected 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial.

Do you think bundling Xbox Game Pass in is the right thing to do? Let us know!
