Come June, Microsoft will make Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and other entertainment apps free to use on the Xbox. These apps previously required a Xbox Live Gold subscription for $60 per year.

Microsoft will also debut Games with Gold on the Xbox One in June, giving players free games and discounts. One Xbox Live Gold subscription will get you free games on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Here’s what you get with a Gold subscription for each console:

This decision was no doubt in reaction to Sony’s pricing model for PlayStation Plus. Netflix and other media apps were free to use without a PlayStation Plus subscription. Sony also offers free games and discounts for subscribers. The price for PlayStation Plus is $50 per year (which covers the PS4, PS3, and Vita), $10 cheaper than Xbox Live Gold.
