    They've really been scrapping the bottom of the barrel lately on Games with Gold.

    How much longer is this going to go on for? It just seems odd considering how cheap game pass is that people would continue to pay only for Gold.

      In reply to remc86007: I'm curious to as I'm one of those still paying for Gold which I'm paying for quarterly. I still get ads telling me to upgrade for a dollar. I'm curious though as if I can change my subscription to a year of Gold to save more money then switch to Game Pass Ultimate for a dollar and still get the discount.
