Both of these services are pretty much essential for Xbox owners. Xbox Live Gold is pretty well-known for its benefits like free monthly games, discounts on digital games, and letting you access online multiplayer modes, but Xbox Game Pass might be even more beneficial depending on how you like to play. It includes access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games that you'll be able to play whenever you want while you're a member — kind of like Netflix but for Xbox games. Xbox Game Pass even lets you play some Xbox games on your PC.
