I bought a series s solely for gamepass (and cant find a series x). The actual games are incredibly expensive on the store, so i will overall avoid them. Perhaps one day i will upgrade to a series x, then i can use physical games at a fraction of the cost.

I hate digital games you can't play them beat them and sell them like with an actual disc. But I find the prices to be similar to stores they just seem to go on sale at different times. You can also use buy the $50 gift card from Costco for $45 to make them a little cheaper to purchase. But I still think the digital copies should be discounted because you don't have a physical disc.

With Forza Horizon 5 coming out in 2 months, does it make sense to get the FH4 Ultimate add-on bundles?

It seems like a good deal with Fortune Island and Lego plus the car pass and VIP.

The sale always comes back. You can wait for FH5, see how you like it and decide if you stick with 5 or go back to 4

Just curious, and this is a serious question: How much is 10+ hours of interactive entertainment worth to you?

They used to be cheaper, but now I am finding they are more expensive on Xbox versus Steam or PSN when they have sales. Plus, the same gamed get rotated for the same price every month or two.

I also only bought physical, not only was it cheaper, but you could own it, get maps or whatever with the disc etc. But now, the utility of digital outweighs any benefits physical had. You still have to install discs, have to swap out. Plus, easier to get updates and optimizations. Very easy for me to have my massive Xbox games collection, just continue with me to newer machines etc.

My Game Pass Ultimate subscription has expired.

Is the deal where you get your Gold membership maxed and then converted all to Ultimate for a buck still on?

Otherwise, I will be on the hunt for cheap Game Pass Ultimate membership.

Even if it doesn't still work, if you buy 3 years of gold and 1 month of ultimate it should give you 3 years of ultimate. I did a year just a few months ago and it worked no problem. I've also seen people say you can use a trial to convert, but don't know if that's actually true or not. I also heard gold could be going away in the future once game pass has a certain amount of subscribers.

I personnaly bought the season pass. I don't value much the rest. I paid about 20$ for the season, at 23$ that makes it a good deal IMO.

Both were available at Best Buy in Thunder Bay last week in their display case. Everyone wanted PS5s though which were MIA...

Still no love for COD Black Ops Cold War which took a 26 GB update yesterday as well as new items if you have Prime Gaming. Still lots of playtime left in that game before Vanguard drops. I am so going to get the Judge Dredd skin and Lawgiver gun...

Thanks for the list...

I disagree. Would rather pay $5-$30 and own a game vs paying $15-$20 a month for renting a game. It also takes me usually a month to complete a game as well
