Samsung and Microsoft have collaborated with each other on various occasions to deliver special features. They have now announced a new partnership that brings Galaxy Note 20 gaming bundle for interested buyers. This bundle includes a special Xbox Game Pass app, free subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and a gaming controller.
The special Xbox Game Pass app will allow users to redeem tokens and make in-app purchases in the Xbox Store. These purchases include unlockable in-game items like DLCs and skins. It is a functionality that is not available on the standard application available for download via the Google Play Store.
Next up, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a subscription service that offers access to over 100 Xbox titles for a fixed monthly charge instead of purchasing them individually. It helps gamers save a lot of money and starting September 15th, all users will also get free access to Microsoft xCloud game streaming service. It means users will be able to stream and play their favorite Xbox games directly on their phones and tablets. The Galaxy Note 20 series devices are one of the first to work with the service and as a reward to those who book the gaming bundle, Samsung and Microsoft are offering three months of free subscription.
The gaming bundle further includes a PowerA MOGA XP5-X Plus gaming controller. This is a controller that has specifically been designed by keeping Microsoft's xCloud service in mind. It is also capable of keeping your phone charged while you game on the service. It should be noted that users can also use their Xbox One controllers with the service. As of now, the pricing for the Galaxy Note 20 gaming bundle is unknown.
