Xbox Game Pass Ultimate packages all of Xbox’s subscriptions

$14.99 gets you Game Pass, Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass for PC

As anticipated, Microsoft will combine its Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold offerings into one subscription — with Xbox Game Pass for PC thrown in. The new subscription is $14.99 a month, and new subscribers can join the fun for $1 for the first month.

Existing subscribers to both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold may take advantage of the $1 offer and upgrade their subscriptions. But for those wondering how that works on an account with time left on a Gold Subscription, all we can offer is Microsoft’s fine print:

Purchase of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate automatically upgrades your existing Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass membership(s) to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a conversion ratio each based on days remaining. Future code redemptions are also subject to a conversion ratio. Conversion ratio subject to change. All conversions to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate are final: Once converted, you cannot re-convert your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership back to a previous membership. Maximum 36 months of redeemed Xbox Game Pass Ultimate per account at a time, including any converted time from Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass (for PC or console).

Hopefully that answers everything. Ordinarily, Xbox Game Pass has been sold for $9.99 a month, and Xbox Live Gold has run $59.99 for a year.
