Microsoft is advertising its recently-launched Xbox Game Pass subscription service with a healthy dose of humor in a funny trailer.

Today Microsoft released a new trailer to advertise its recently-launched service Xbox Game Pass.

The trailer features the service as a drive-through, with customers asking for this or that game, only to react incredulously when they are told that they can get them all.

Yeah, it’s a lot funnier when you actually watch it, as opposed to me describing it.

The service offers a selection of a hundred Xbox One and Xbox 360 games (changing monthly) that subscribers can download on their own console, differing for similar offerings that feature streaming from a remote server. It costs $9.99 a month.

Recently, Microsoft’s executives mentioned that Xbox Game Pass┬áis “off to a very good start” and is “showing promising early results.” CEO Satya Nadella himself explained that the goal of the service is to become a sort of “Netflix of Games” accessible across different devices.

You can check out the trailer for yourself below, and see if it entices you to make the jump.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
