Bango and Microsoft sign agreement to boost Xbox cloud gaming subscriptions

Bango Mobile payments firm, Bango, has expanded its partnership with Microsoft to open-up access to Xbox cloud gaming subscriptions and console sales. With new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S now available in time for the year-end buying season, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription service and Xbox All Access program are expected to be in high demand.

Microsoft will use the Bango Platform to enable telco partners to bundle Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox All Access in their cloud gaming subscription packages. This is the latest expansion of the Bango partnership with Microsoft, through which Bango powers carrier billed payments for Xbox gamers and across the Microsoft Store.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate gives gamers access to over 100 high-quality games on console, PC and compatible mobile devices for one low monthly price.

Gaming subscriptions and console acquisition programs are aligned to the way consumers are increasingly accessing entertainment. Consumers are standardizing on cloud gaming subscriptions for gaming content as it dramatically increases choice, compared to pay per game business models.
