In perhaps semi-related news to the above I see that the CMA (The Competition and Markets Authority) are looking into the semi-shady business of auto-renewal with online services from not just Microsoft, but Sony and Nintendo too...

Bumper crop right there. Game Pass is fast becoming a very appealing service. Although the additional need for Gold on top of the cost is what puts me off.

Although if recenet mumblings are true then they are coming out with a combined offer in the future.
