Xbox Game Pass in South Africa
Xbox Game Pass provides subscribers with access to a library of more than 200 games to play on either or both Xbox and Windows PCs.
Instead of paying a once-off amount for a title, subscribers have access for as long as they pay a monthly fee.
In South Africa, an Xbox Game Pass subscription for console or PC is priced at R99 per month.
Or for R149, you could get an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which provides access to the library for a single user on both PC and console, in addition to certain exclusive content.
