Last year, Xbox increased the price of its first-party games from £60 ($60) to £70 ($70) to match PlayStation’s pricing.

Xbox has also dropped the £1 ($1) Game Pass trial offer, allowing users to get Game Pass for a low price for the first month.

Also this year, the company announced that the price of the Game Pass for console and Ultimate will increase.

These changes shocked the community, but were to be expected given the general price increases.

The Game Pass price hike encouraged people to buy the service a month before the deadline.

However, on the same day that the price went up, Xbox reintroduced the £1 (US$1) offer, which meant a lot of people ended up losing money.

Though this lasted for a while, Xbox made yet another change to Game Pass just before the release of the biggest game of the year.

An Xbox exclusive, Starfield is a massive open-world space adventure from the team that developed Skyrim.

The Standard Edition will sell for the full price of £70 ($70) but will also be available for Game Pass on release day.

start on September 6, 2023, It doesn’t take long before you can immerse yourself in the open universe.

However, just prior to this launch, Xbox made a new change to the inexpensive Game Pass trials.

The £1 ($1) trial now only lasts two weeks instead of the usual month, which isn’t really long enough to immerse yourself in the game.

With all these changes, users often do not know the current offers, which is also problematic for consumers.
