    If this turn out to be available for just single months... that's a great winter month of gaming! Sign up for 1 or 2 months and then unsub....

    play all day every day and try all the games

    that might work!

    My initial thoughts are this is too expensive. Are there still micro transactions in the subscription software? As said above a single month may be ok but I imagine they want you hooked, to sub for multiple months. This is the latest cash grab by large publishers. Coming soon will be Kickstarter style funding to remove the risk from making games (on top of the pre orders)

    Re: Ubisoft announces UPlay+ subscriptions (PC Only, $14.99)

    Hmm $14.99 is just too expensive when it's a single platform imo, especially for Ubi's games. It's just as expensive (and just as over priced) as Origin Premier imo, but premier offers more games.

    Microsoft are offering single platform for $9.99 a month which is about right, or $14.99 for multi platform. In practice its a lot cheaper than that due to the constant offers/deals MS are offering. I assume that as "gaming as a service" is still relatively new, we'll eventually see pricing settle based on the number of people that actually sign up to each service.

    I will stick to gamepass only for now I think - I have way too many games to play as it is

    Bringing console crap subscription to PC. It's the end of the world.

    Re: Ubisoft announces UPlay+ subscriptions (PC Only, $14.99)

    I like the idea of subscriptions to access game libraries provided they are fairly priced and games can still be purchased alone.

    However, with over half of Ubisoft's PC game catalogue either awfully ported from console or just generally badly optimised, this type of service from them seems laughable.

    i think I will hold out for the hero of "pay for a month and bail out" because its not certain one way or t'other.

    But it does get me thinking... I'd pay £15 for a months worth of trial games I think.

    I'm bound to like one or two and want to own them.

    Seems too many subscriptions. Probably will have to skip this one

    Re: Ubisoft announces UPlay+ subscriptions (PC Only, $14.99)

    I didn't bother with Origin sub because they don't have enough games I'm interested in. Most of their shop content is add-ons and DLCs for football and CoD type games.

    By comparison, Ubi has even fewer titles of interest, especially since half their shop is padded out by Assassins Creed add ons, spin offs and DLC.
