Pricing

So, you would imagine that for so many games the price should be well over 20$, sorry to say, but the price is only $9.99 per month (or 9.99 euros, or 7.99 pounds). Yes. That’s how much you pay for 250+ with new ones added to the list every month!

How does it work?

It’s very simple, and quite traditional. There’s no streaming required. To play a game, you just have to download it to your game library and start enjoying it.
