    Another nice freebee from Game Pass. Microsoft are really making it great value. I've barely spent a penny on games since Ultimate started. Be tempted to get a controller clip to try this even if my phone is basic and the internet connection mediocre!

    Thing is it is on Android... what does Apple offer in return.. it is clearly the fight for the customers as well.

    I don't get it. It's not a freebee, or good value if you're paying £10.99 a month and cannot access any of them when not subscribed... Especially when considering buying extra hardware...

    It is if you are already subscribed and getting good value from the service. (I paid a lot less than £10.99 to access the service - its very easy to do so with all the deals to upgrade gold etc.) I've then accessed at least 2+ games a month I'd have happily paid £10 each for. Ultimately its the same argument of streaming music/video versus purchasing a CD/DVD. if you want to own something it's not value but having realised I rarely replay a game once I've completed it or abandoned it (usually after 10 minutes) this is saving me significant money. Its also means I am playing games a lot earlier as I no longer need to wait for them to hit my £10 or less value threshold I normally wait for. For the odd title I do want to revisit I buy them (Kingdom come deliverance being the only on so far)
