Off the bat, that's 60+ EA games available on Gamepass (Battlefield, Mass Effect, Need for Speed franchises), special deals and discounts, and free 10-hour trials of their new releases.
Best of all, you get Anthem for free!


Microsoft swinging harder than Sony possibly can, I feel (especially since Sony has no true Gamepass counter (PS Now ain't remotely there yet)), though rumors swirling aboot say that Sony is set to respond today.


Also of interest is the All Access Program—you can get either console and Game Pass for $25 a month.

Do note that the All Access is a bit of a scam in the long run. You'll end up paying $600 for the series S, and around $850 for the Series X. Sure, having Gamepass Ultimate included in the price mitigates that somewhat, but when you can get it standalone for as low as $80 a year, it's still an extra $120 to finance the S alone (AFTER including Gamepass Ultimate).

You're WAY better off financing through something like Best Buy, who will pretty much let you do the same thing without such a significant markup.
