Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games with Xbox Game Pass, a new gaming subscription service coming later this spring. Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games – all for $9.99 per month.
Coming sometime in Spring...

This may be an interesting option for me, since I actually hate buying digitally only games and this is a bean divers dream come true! I guess it will depend on what games.

Already available with limited games (16 or so) for people in previews. Doubt if DLC will be included, but never know. Will also give discount for the games if people want to buy them for permanent access (if they get dropped from the list). It's pretty much EA Access for other companies. Could be a really good deal at $10/month, though they'll probably want $15 up here.

I think this is a good deal, but I own too many games already so I don't think it's for me.

So, EA Access is $30/year, and once a game is added, it is yours as long as you continue to subscribe.

This is $120/year, and the games rotate, more like a digital GameFly. Netflix: Games Edition. Something may stick around for months. Something may rotate out quickly. Not exactly a deal breaker, or even a bad thing, but, definitely a difference.

I also agree they need to add more filtering options to help us manage our digital libraries.

According to the Xbox.com FAQs about Game Pass, the games are able to be purchased to keep at 20% off the retail price, with any available DLC at 10% off regular price.
games 20% off and dlc 10% off, im trying it out but only 22 games right now not a 100
Yeah it's only 20 for the preview, but when it goes live (first for the gold members and then after for the silver members) we will have 100 games or so and the will change the games from time to time. And the games you download you will be able to use for 30 days offline. Dlc aren't included in the game pass.
I'm a alpha insider member so I have it now. I think it's good that they made the membership section but they need to make so it doesn't load ea access app for those games. But the game pass games are sorted after genre in their "app" so that's good.

So, then, are Games With Gold games sectioned off in that area as well?
