This is How Much Value Xbox Game Pass Offered Subscribers in 2023

A recent report shows the massive amount of value Xbox Game Pass subscribers are getting from their purchase, with nearly $9000 USD worth of games added in 2023. The subscription service from Microsoft has been one of the premier subscriptions in gaming since its debut. Xbox Game Pass regularly adds new games to the service, with high-profile releases like Bethesda's Starfield and Mundfish's highly-anticipated Atomic Heart available on their launch day. Now, a new report reveals the massive price tag for all of the games added to the service throughout the year.

2023 was a major year for Xbox Game Pass with several high-profile games and franchises made available through the Microsoft subscription service. Starfield served as one of the biggest Xbox-exclusive releases of the year to debut on Game Pass, with Bethesda's newest game nominated for "Best RPG" at The Game Awards. Indie games also saw a big year on Game Pass, with new releases like Cocoon and Cassette Beasts available through the service. The plethora of games added throughout 2023 totals out to some staggering value for Game Pass subscribers this year.

As reported by TrueAchievements, Xbox Game Pass subscribers were treated to just under $9000 worth of games added to the service throughout the year. The cumulative price of all games added during 2023 totals up to a gargantuan $8,763 USD at full price for all of the included games. The massive cost of all of the games added to Game Pass stands in stark contrast to the service's price, with users paying $16.99 USD a month for a Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Microsoft added well over 100 new games to the Xbox Game Pass library throughout 2023.

The massive value of Xbox Game Pass comes as Microsoft has discussed potential changes to come to the subscription service. Microsoft raised the price of the subscription service for the first time earlier this year, with the base Game Pass subscription increasing to $10.99 USD. Xbox boss Phil Spencer also spoke about the price changes during this year's Tokyo Games Show, suggesting further increases to Xbox Game Pass' price were "inevitable." However, Spencer did also express that he felt the value of Game Pass should rise with the price.

Xbox Game Pass' strong showing in 2023 will look to carry over into 2024 with multiple games already on the schedule for January. Microsoft confirmed that Turnip Boy Robs a Bank will be arriving on the Game Pass library on January 18 with Go Mecha Ball coming to the service a week later. Xbox Game Pass also has several Day 1 games confirmed for later in 2024, including Persona 3 Reload and Avowed among others. Xbox Game Pass' value is set to rise even higher throughout 2024 with plenty of big games on the way.
