Xbox One X

Staying inside and following social distancing guidelines is the safe and responsible thing to do right now, but it can get boring after a while. That’s not an excuse to break guidelines, but maybe it’s time for a new way to pass the time. Right now, a membership to Xbox Live Gold or PS Plus can be had for a great price at CD Keys.

Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass

If you already have an Xbox, chances are that you already know that Microsoft offers both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Live is how you connect to the internet on your console, but Gold is what enables you to play with friends. Gold subscriptions also include access to the Games with Gold program where you can download free games twice per month.
