As Apple does with Arcade, Microsoft offers its own on-demand video game service. the Xbox Game Pass offers several packages, the most advantageous of which is the Ultimate subscription. For 1 euro the first month then 12.99 euros per month thereafter, customers here have access to hundreds of different titles, the list of which is updated regularly. Among these, one can cite in particular the excellent flight simulator, Persona 5 Royal or vampire survivors.
Perhaps on the occasion of the upcoming Black Friday, Microsoft is currently offering an unprecedented asset for the Ultimate package. This includes three months of free subscription to Apple Music and Apple TV+, the bonus being available until March 31, 2023. French customers are eligible but Russia, probably following the conflict with Ukraine, is excluded from the promotion.
Hundreds of original videos
Apple TV+ normally costs 6.99 euros per month. Microsoft’s offer therefore theoretically allowssave more than 20 euroswhich is not negligible especially when you know that the price of the Cupertino service was increased by 2 euros recently.
For this amount, Apple offers you to discover its own original productions such as Make of Breaka documentary on the world of surfing or even The Shining Girls, a science fiction series starring Elisabeth Moss. Among the other successes of the streaming platform, we also find Prehistoric Planeta movie about dinosaurs with David Attenborough narrating.
Apple Music on Xbox
With this, it is therefore also the Apple Music catalog which is offered for three months as a free trial. Here, users save almost 30 euros ! The app has been available on the Microsoft Store for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S since last October, with the bonus of synchronized song lyrics for karaoke and large album covers.
It is possible, on Xbox, to let titles play in the background when playing a video game. Of course, Apple Music is also available on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac.
