The End of Ownership? (Premium)


I signed up for an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription yesterday, and now I feel like I've taken a step into the future.

It’s only a step, to be sure. The real future, the not-so-distant future, isn’t just about accessing a subscription library of Xbox games. It’s about a subscription library of games that works anywhere, on any device. That future, of course, is called xCloud. Or Google Stadia. Or PlayStation something-something. Or whatever.
