Posted by Ars Technic on January 23, 2018 09:00:03In addition to the new game and app features, Amazon is also rolling out a new “Game Pass” subscription service, which will allow gamers to buy games for $9.99 or $24.99.
That means, for example, if you’ve already bought a game and want to keep it for free, you’ll need to add it to your existing Prime subscription.
Amazon’s new Game Pass service also allows you to watch videos from SEGA titles, which is a great way to get a deeper dive into a game like Sonic Adventure or Sonic Adventure 2.
If you want to check out a specific game, though, you can subscribe for an additional $6.99 per month.
Amazon is also working on a new subscription service that allows you access to “digital and mobile-exclusive content.”
If you already subscribe to Prime, you won’t need to do anything different here, but if you don’t, Amazon will charge you for every game you subscribe to.
Amazon’s Game Pass subscription will come to all users of the Prime Instant Video service, including those who subscribe to Amazon Prime.
In other words, if I subscribe to the service, and you don, I can now watch all the games on my service and still be eligible for the $6/month Prime Instant video service.
The service is available now on Android and iOS, and is available on Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet, Fire HDX, and Fire HD Pro tablets.
