Avid Xbox gamers are well aware of what the Xbox Game Pass it, and how it is an excellent opportunity to score great games at incredible prices, and sometimes even for free.

This is obviously just one of many preparations that Microsoft has taken in order to prepare the launch of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles.
Not only will gamers now gain access to a newer, much more powerful console, but this new facelift comes as an incentive for more and more users to subscribe to the Xbox Game Pass as soon as possible.
This is especially the case since the new consoles will also support backwards compatibility, so older games will still be playable.
Parental controls get a few noticeable changes as well
The first thing on any user’s mind now that the new Xbox will soon hit live and the store has a new face is that purchases will skyrocket.
However, while this may be the purpose, after all, the enhancements brought to the Parental Controls will ensure that this doesn’t happen mindlessly.
As an example, the Store’s new interface is better at showcasing content ratings, and parents now have it easier when it comes to restricting games.
The new Xbox Store will be rolled out today, and anyone using an Xbox console will be able to see the new changes after performing a brief update.
With so many changes happening in such a short period of time, users can only wonder what else does Microsoft have in store for them.
