Gaming services or subscriptions have been around for a long while (especially the likes of Xbox live and PSN) and have offered free games as a value add. More recently services/subscriptions have been offered solely for the purpose of providing games. And say what you like about them, some offer great value.
Currently I have an Amazon Prime subscription which offers quite a bit of value especially as it gives you Twitch prime which includes ad-free Twitch viewing and monthly assortment of games.
I also have a Humble Monthly subscription but have had it paused for quite a while lately.
I’m definitely eyeing EA’s Origin Access (the standard one) with its large assortment of games for as low as R300 for the year.
What subs do you have? What are your thoughts on them?
I don’t have any gaming subs at the moment, apart from PS Plus (if that counts).
I’m am seriously considering the EA Origin Premium Pass. I will give it a go once one of the new games which I want to play releases. My idea is to pay for one month (think that is R200?) and if I like it and the games, I’ll pay the year sub, which is R1200 or so I believe, which is great value for money if you play only 3 of the new games.
I always have xbox live gold, i just find it good value for what your getting (especially the 360 games you get to keep permamently) alot which i never had the opportunity to buy and play back then. I also have an xbox gamepass sub that expires in 2 or 3 days, i only get gamepass when its R5 a month or when i get it for free if i reach the gold or gamepass quests for the month.
Currently I have Xbox Live Gold that I’ve been paying now for more than 10 years already. Every year I try to get a 12 month bundle that end’s up being a bit cheaper per month.
Then I also have Game Pass now, and have decided to keep it. With the passing of each month, Game Pass gets more and more valuable and at the moment it’s becoming an essencial service to have on Xbox. So many games I’ve played and tried just because of Game Pass.
Then I also have Humble Bundle, but I frequently turn it off and on again if there is something I find interesting and would like to add to my growing list of PC games I’ll most probably never play.
I’m actually officially considering cancelling my Humble Monthly for good. I’ve paused it for 3 months in a row now due to already owning the early unlocks, or not having any interest in them (like this month).
