Can someone school me on the game pass stuff. This is my first xbox. For the PlayStation I never really gamed online and only paid for the online gaming a handful of times. Typically I like single player games. I plan on putting a lot of time into Microsoft flight sim and also checking out forza first. I see that the flight sim has 3 different versions you can buy. I think it is also on the game pass though.

Game pass is like Netflix for games and when you get game pass ultimate it includes Xbox gold live which allows you to play games online. It also includes monthly games not on game pass that you can keep while you are subscribed.

Do the Turkey 🇹🇷 key hack.


Bought 3 years of Xbox live from Turkey. Redeem using vpn on USA account. Then convert to Gamepass. Spent 98$ for 3 years of Gamepass (either 1$ for new gamepass conversions or 14$ more if you had gamepass in the past)

I think my game pass expires at the end of the year. Hoping I can do this again.

You don’t have to do that

I bought a bunch of gold yesterday then paid 15$ for Xbox ultimate and it applied to all my 2 years+ of gold. O recurring billing

Did you pay 30$ for 1 yr of gold?

So if I just decide to buy the flight sim game outright for now, I assume I won’t be able to play online? And what’s the cost if I do want to?

You just need XBL Gold for online access. It's $9.99 p/m.

Here's a breakdown. Look at the descriptions rather than the first month price.

Yeah you would not be able to play online without at least Xbox live gold.

MSRP is $60/year. I think the lowest it gets these days for a legit code is about $50/year. If you want to use a VPN and buy a code from a 3rd world country and redeem it on your account they can be had for around $30-something.
